I imagine there will be times there you won't be inside your mech, and I wonder how that would be handled! Example, you are approaching a clan and they request no outside weapons. Agreeing to this insane request, you get out and enter their stronghold. Now in another room, would a Technician have any method of self defense or should we expect 1 point-of-damage punches or a subpar gun/knife you hid in your boot?
Or alternatively suppose you are seeing things get dicey in a bar and your trigger finger is starting to itch or someone has flipped your berserk switch, and you want to get in your mech to mess some fools up... but you left it in the bar's driveway either because it couldn't fit through the door or because you can't drink through your helmet... Would you tippity tap on your wrist and the suit would auto-pilot towards you (barreling through anything in the way) and open up so you can get inside?
... Could another Technician jack our newly polished Tech, forcing us to deal with using their worn down hunk of junk/nothing? Can our BEAST be destroyed separately from us in a "Emergency Eject" way giving us a final chance to flee from battle or be sabotaged by a stealthy individual who wants to keep a Technician from using their greatest weapon? In such a scenario could/would we start building a new one from scratch or do we have an insurance plan?
If you haven't noticed I am excited to have a robot suit.
