Model: BoSS Documentation Datapad
Type: Permit datapad
Availability: 2, F
Game Notes: Altering data using the “read only” port as a “write only” port requires a Heroic Forgery roll. Those using a custom-made input plug need to make a Difficult roll, but the forger must first purchase or make his own plug. Cracking the datapad to change documentation requires a Very Difficult Forgery roll. Do not forget to factor in modifiers based on the forgery skill description on page 56 of the Rulebook. Failure at most of these rolls often lowers the forgery’s quality. Rolling a 1 on the wild die means the forger has accidentally fried the circuitry and destroyed the datapad.
