varan critical damage
For cybervarans, the following table can be used for critical damage:
d6  result
1Cloaking device damaged
2Mapping system and (bio)-scanners damaged
3Random thing damaged or armor save reduced by 1
4+1 damage (do not roll for second critical hit)
5Head damaged, all accurace/sensor skills lost and -1 dice perception and shooting
6Massive wound. Reroll d6: 1-3 Severe wound, load capacity and movement rate halved, -1 all dice. One limb possibly severed. Varan bleeds to death within a minute.
4-5 Varan incapacitated and bleeds to death in a minute. 6 Varan killed.

Any second hit to damaged system destroys it. A second massive wound is fatal. Sensor damage and severe wound are cumulative. Any damage can be repaired and regenerated. Bleed can be stopped with first aid in 3 turns. Dice penalty applies to melee when defending, too.

In addition, any external systems may be damaged/destroyed each time a varan is hit (even if the hit is saved). In general, a d6 roll 6 destroys/damages one system.

Damaged systems can be repaired in d6 minutes, but severe wound must be regenerated. Incapacitated varan must regenerate one hit point to return to action.
