Holt-Rischmann Device

A Holt-Rischmann Device (HRD) is a quantum device that measures the local ambient energy index and the exertion of of a quantum force synonymous with (but not exclusive to) the human Will. Advanced models are sensitive enough to differentiate signatures of the same magnitude and can be programmed to detect specific individuals regardless of their level of exertion (resting, unconscious, agitated, projecting, etc).

The HRD comes in a variety of shapes and sizes – the Heirotus portable version looks like a matchlock pistol, and the ETL-supplied Templar variant is most commonly used as a desktop device. Difficult and expensive to produce, HRDs command an exorbitant price on the open market.

Quantum Analogue Relay

The Heirotus-built Quantum Analogue Relay (QAR) is a highly advanced piece of real-time telecommunications hardware made possible by a combination of mass abstraction, crystal twinning, and classified advances derived from Judas Lang‘s “patent dump” of MBO-2.

Due to mass abstraction requirements the QAR can only be safely operated in space. The core of the device is a sphere removed from external mass influence, with its own gravity plane and atmosphere. The QAR operates by essentially creating the same environment in two places at once, allowing for realtime communication and interaction. Objects in two separate QAR spheres are – to human perception – effectively in the same QAR sphere. Individuals at the other end of a QAR session create a local Holt-Rischmann Variance.

Snow Globe

The Heirotus-issue “Snow Globe” is a canteen-shaped short range electronic warfare device. It can blanket a specific frequency for a lengthy amount of time or a broad swath of the communications spectrum for a short period of time. The function and effect is somewhat similar to an Atari or 8-bit Nintendo in proximity to an FM radio. It is unclear if the device impacts Addicaine cybernetic capabilities – if it does, it would explain why Greg triggered one after running a ballistic macro.

The device may or may not interfere with Heirotus communications frequencies.
