The Everett Beam Redoubler is a quantum piece of equipment designed to widen the usability cases in combat in regards to Quantum-Entangled lasers.

History[edit]

It is the product of relentless Inner Sphere efforts to make the Quantum-Entangled lasers useful. Connected to the Word of Blake, some of their lesser-known experimental variants would mount this unusual piece of equipment.

By the 3090's, advancements on Inner Sphere lasers would render the EBR (and the related Q-E Lasers) obsolete. The complications of the tech and the lack of production of the very complex spare parts required, combined with the loss of know-how and training, meant none of them were known to remain in service by the middle of the decade.

Functioning[edit]

The Everett Beam Redoubler forces the timeline to split an additional time, giving your Quantum beam weapons another chance to hit.

Rumors[edit]

It is said the entire universe is destroyed, then recreated, when the Beam Redoubler is activated. This is merely a quantum effect so nobody notices.

Rules[edit]

The component always counts as Experimental tech.

Normally, upon a successful hit of a Quantum-Entangled laser, flip a coin or throw a d6. On half the cases (1-3 on the d6), the attack does nothing.
With an Everett Beam Redoubler, upon a fail, you can generate the weapon's regular heat again in order to flip the coin again.

Additional rules[edit]

If using the Probability-Enhanced optional Quantum laser rules, the Everett Beam Redoubler just gives a -1 bonus to the hit target of the Quantum-Entangled lasers.
