Research Rolls: June, Week I

Here are this week’s research system rolls.

Balance of Power modifiers:

  • Piltover: +0
  • Bandle City: +0
  • Zaun: +4
  • Demacia: +1

Piltover

Piltover-Velocitronic Rail

The Velocitronic Rail (Beta Phase) — High-speed hextech levitating train system
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: 0
Roll: 10!
Total: 10

Breakthrough! Project advances to Gamma Phase!

Piltover-PeopleOfTomorrow

progress-complete

Piltover has lifted its ban on bio-augmentation to pursue an ambitious project to amplify human (and yordle) capabilities with hextech.

Impact: Piltover has pushed the boundaries of ethical experimentation to create serums, implants, and other treatments that greatly enhance recipients’ abilities. Nearly everyone can benefit to some degree from this project — and a select few individuals with heightened sensitivity can become truly superhuman. Piltover’s military strength is increased by +1. This also opens the door to Zac potentially joining Piltover as a secondary Champion.

Piltover-AirshipArmada

Airship Armada (Gamma Phase) — Build a fleet of hextech airships
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: 0
Roll: 10!
Total: 10

Breakthrough! Project advances to Gamma Phase!

Piltover-StrategicHexplosives

Strategic Hexplosives (Gamma Phase) — Use pyrikhos to mass-produce high-yield explosives
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +0
Roll: 9
Total: 9

Breakthrough! Project advances to Gamma Phase!

Piltover-TheLostLegion

The Lost Legion (Beta Phase) — Cure and re-equip Void-sickened Noxian refugees led by Riven
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: 0
Roll: 5
Total: 5

Danger Level: 2
Roll: 12 (success)

 

Bandle City

It is the declared intent of the Mothership Elders to, before this dispute is over, land a yordle on the moon and return them safely to Bandle City!

Bandle-Mothership

Refuel the Mothership (Gamma Phase) — Attempt to refuel the Yordle Mothership with pyrikhos-based fuel
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +0
Roll: 10
Total: 10

Breakthrough! Project complete! GLORY TO THE MOTHERSHIP!

We will come up with an impact ASAP. It should be spectacular.

Bandle-CosmicBalance

progress-complete

Kennen has applied Ionian arcane theories to the balance of Order and Chaos in an effort to understand how these two forces relate to the greater cosmos. If he is successful in understanding this balance, it is believed that it could pave the way for the safe use of pyrikhos, and help avoid another “correction” such as the Void invasion Demacia provoked by aligning itself with Ceruleana.

Impact: Bandle City can reroll failed Danger Level checks.

Bandle-YordleSubmarines

Yordle Submarines (Alpha Phase) — Explore the sea searching for Fizz’s lost civilization
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +0
Roll: 10!
Total: 10

Breakthrough! Project advances to Beta Phase!

Bandle-StrategicHexplosives

Strategic Hexplosives (Alpha Phase) — Use pyrikhos to mass-produce high-yield explosives
Target: 8 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +0
Roll: 8
Total: 8

Breakthrough! Project advances to Beta Phase!

Danger Level: 3
Roll: 15 (success)

Zaun

Zaun-HexKorps-Complete

Zaun-PharmakonII-Complete

Zaun-VoidEnergy-Complete

Zaun-MutantAcademy-Complete

Zaun-Warpgate

progress-complete

Twisted Fate has discovered a strange interaction between his powers and the pyrikhos: while normally he can only teleport himself, with concentration he can reach through a charged pyrikhos field and use it to teleport another object instead. With his help, Zaunite researchers have developed a hextech portal-to-portal instantaneous teleportation system.

Impact: This technology allows Zaun to project its military power across Valoran by building a secret network of warpgates, and to react quickly to multiple threats.

Zaun-ExtraDimensionalTheory

Extradimensional Theory (Beta Phase) — Investigate the nature of celestial and extradimensional beings
Target: 7 or higher
Balance of Power Modifier: +4
Roll: 9
Total: 13

Breakthrough! Project advances to Gamma Phase!

Danger Level: 7
Roll: 19 (success)

Demacia

Demacia-CosmicPurity

progress-complete

Demacia sought the power to exorcise the demons of the Void. As they delved deeper into the nature of the Void, Demacia’s mages and clerics discovered an eerie connection between the Void and the necromantic energies that animate the undead. They have found holy magic to drive back the demon and purify lands contaminated by these dark powers.

Impact: In battles with the Void or the undead, Demacia rolls twice and keeps the higher roll. This also adds a degree of resistance to Zaun’s psi-magic, forcing Zaun to seek an 8 on a d8 (instead of a 6 on a d6) when using Pharmakon II’s Champion-ban bonus against Demacia. Finally, this opens the door to recruiting Kayle or Lucian, either of whom will unlock the Dawnbringers project.

Demacia-SecretsOfShurima-Complete

Since Demacia has completed all its projects, I decided to give them an early roll on the Dawnbringers project, which will formally launch with the next lore event.

Balance of Power modifier: +1
Roll: 6
Total: 7

Danger Level: 1
Roll: 12 (success)

Stay tuned for more!

    I have a question. On the airship armada and hextech explosive projects Piltover has, it say that both are in Gamma phase, a breakthrough happens for both, and both say that the project progresses to gamma phase. I was just wondering if that was intentional or not.

    Seems to me that the non-Zaun factions have finally gotten some luck in their research rolls/ Good for them!
