Vehicle fighting: -2 to all actions including driving(except detection) when taking an action while in a moving vehicle. Any vehicle and/or rider going over a speed of 20 increases their threshold by 1. Vehicles usually provide Medium Cover, though some may provide more or less, and even total cover.
Out of Control The first round you fail a drive check you go out of control. While out of control you continue to move at your current speed, and drift up to 45 degrees, which may cause you to wreck. The next round you must make a regain control check or you wreck. All actions taken for those in an out of control vehicle are assumed to be on an unstable platform.
Wreck: When you get in an accident several things happen. If you don’t have a seat belt, safety harness or airbags roll a 1d6. On a 4-6 you get thrown from the vehicle 1 hex per each hex of your current speed. If you have a single safety feature, roll 2d6 and on a 12 you get ejected. If you have 2 or more safety features you do not gwt ejected. Either way you take 1 DV for every hex of speed. A safety harness, seat belt or air bags you take 1 DV for every 2 hexes of movement. If you have belts and an air bag you cut the damage to 1 DV for every 3 hexes of movement. You resist a crash with only your fortitude.
If you are flying, you take 1 DV for every hex you fall down plus 1 DV for every hex of speed you were traveling.
Fly: Your fly is equal to your total agility. Fly is for magical or natural flight, a flying vehicle or mount uses the drive skill under savvy. While flying each hex you ascend (move up) costs +1 MP. Movement is otherwise on a 1 to 1 basis. You may sprint while flying unless your form of movement says otherwise.
If your flying without the benefit of magic certain maneuvers have a threshold.
Driver The driver may take his actions at any time during his drive.

ACC – You can accelerate or decelerate up to this amount each round.
TS – Top speed your vehicle can hit.
Handling – Add to drive for total drive pool.
Crew – this is the minimum number of crew needed to control the vehicle. For every 10% (rounded up) below the minimum crew you take a -1 to handling checks. If the driver dies or gets knocked out the vehicle goes out of control regardless of how much crew is left.
Fuel – This is the cost per day in fuel for a full day of travel. If used for basic city travel in a day this is a per week expense. You may spend your lifestyle on fuel. Fuel is intentionally vague to account for all the different types of fuEl one may encounter (gasoline, coal, magical crystals, etc.)
