Research Rolls: May, Week II

Here are this week’s research system rolls.

Piltover

Piltover-Velocitronic Rail

The Velocitronic Rail (Alpha Phase) — High-speed hextech levitating train system
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: -1
Roll: 5
Total: 4

Piltover-PeopleOfTomorrow

People of Tomorrow (Gamma Phase) — Bio-augmentation project
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: -1
Roll: 10
Breakthrough! Project advances to Gamma Phase.
Piltover has created a new procedure which can give an ordinary person extraordinary powers. They are proceeding slowly and cautiously, however, until they fully understand the changes it brings about.

Piltover-AirshipArmada

Airship Armada (Alpha Phase) — Build a fleet of hextech airships
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: -1
Roll: 2
Total: 1

Danger Level: 1
Roll: 20 (success)

Bandle City

Bandle-Mothership

Refuel the Mothership (Beta Phase) — Attempt to refuel the Yordle Mothership with pyrikhos-based fuel
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +3
Roll: 3
Total: 6

Bandle-CosmicBalance

Cosmic Balance (Beta Phase) — Balance Order and Chaos and find a way to use pyrikhos safely.
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +3
Roll: 6
Total: 9
Breakthrough! Project advances to Ga
mma Phase!
The chaos left by Zaun’s sabotage has given Kennen a chance to better understand the nature of the Void, and how it connects to the larger cosmos.

Danger Level: 2
Roll: 14 (success)

Zaun

Zaun-HexKorps

HexKorps (Gamma Phase) — A mechanized hextech army of battletanks, mutants, death rays, and other fiendish innovations
Target: 7 or higher (Aggressive Research bonus)
Balance of Power Bonus: +0
Roll: 7
Total: 7
Breakthrough! Project complete!

Zaun now commands a hextech army. The HexKorps is ready for battle. Surely Zaun will only use this power for good.

Zaun-PharmakonII

Pharmakon II (Complete) — An arcano-elixir that could produce a new breed of Void-touched mages
Project complete!
This project’s initial rounds had a 62% fatality rate. That number is now down to an acceptable 5%. Zaun has created a new breed of mage, touched by the Void and wielding unnatural psionic powers that can pry apart the fabric of reality.

Zaun-VoidEnergy

Void Energy (Beta Phase) — An attempt to harness the energies of the Void itself.
Target: 7 or higher (Aggressive Research bonus)
Balance of Power Bonus: +0
Roll: 7
Total: 7
Breakthrough! Project advances to Ga
mma Phase!
Rumors circulate around Zaun that megacorp security teams wearing head-to-toe protective gear were seen chasing what looked like a Voidling through the streets last week.

Zaun-MutantAcademy

Mutant Academy (Gamma Phase) — An institution led by Zac where mutants can learn to use their powers for good
Target: 7 or higher (Aggressive Research bonus)
Balance of Power Bonus: +0
Twisted Fate Bonus: +1
Roll: 3
Total: 4

Zaun-Warpgate

Warpgate (Beta Phase) — Twisted Fate is assisting Zaun in creating a point-to-point teleportation system.
Target: 7 or higher (Aggressive Research bonus)
Balance of Power Bonus: +0
Roll: 2
Total: 2

Danger Level: 6
Roll: 1 (failure)

Something really really bad just happened in Zaun. The lore team will get onto deciding exactly what. It’s probably a safe bet, though, that their reckless experimentation with Void energy has brought them some new friends.
In terms of game impact, I’ve consulted the Danger Level table to determine what that will be.
Blitzcrank will be unavailable to Zaun for tomorrow’s Featured Matches. He’s, uh, busy saving the city, or something.

Demacia

Demacia-CosmicPurity

Cosmic Purity (Beta Phase) — Holy magic to repel the Void and cure those it has afflicted
Target: 8 or higher
Roll: 2
Balance of Power Modifier: +3
Total: 5

Demacia-SecretsOfShurima

Secrets of Shurima (Alpha Phase) — An attempt to unravel the secrets of ancient Shuriman magic to better understand pyrikhos
Target: 8 or higher
Roll: 6
Balance of Power Modifier: +3
Total: 9
Breakthrough! Project advances to Beta Phase.

Demacian mages have begun to understand some of the most basic principles of Shuriman magic, an ancient arcane system quite alien to the magic now practiced in Runeterra.

Danger Level: 1
Roll: 14 (success)

Stay tuned for more!

  1. […] Demacia will face off against Zaun, as part of the Hextech Revolution storyline. Zaun has just completed the HexKorps, a hextech-powered army of tanks, giant robots, and techmaturgical death rays. Though […]

    Oo already an interesting change! What will Zaun do now that they have been handi-capped two times?

  3. Maevis Pas says:

    Maybe with Zaun rolling disaster, one of the Void champs, thinking Vel’Koz or Cho’Goth, come in and ruin one of their projects back to design phase? Like Godzliia!

  4. BlackRose02 says:

    Don’t mean to be rude, but on the first interactive lore for this arc, it said that Twisted Fate would add 1 to the rolls for the mutant academy. I was just wondering if that was remembered.

    • CupcakeTrap says:

      Not rude at all. Thanks for catching that! It had slipped my mind, because Zaun picked up TF through Featured Matches rather than the lore event. I’ve corrected the post to add the +1.
