The character has been surrounded by technology, some of which may be centuries or millennia old, for their entire lives. The character gains +1d to Tech tests.


Hivers are unaccustomed to the ways of wild, untamed places. Even the wilderness of underhive levels and abandoned habs is still built around artificial structures. Hiveworlders suffer +1DN on all Survival tests made when not in an urban or manufactured environment.

Towering, overcrowded megacities dominating polluted worlds, even the smallest hive city is home to billions of souls. These people toil in obscurity, slaving away for their entire lives in vast manufactories, or battling for survival in breadline riots or territorial skirmishes. For most, the only hope of seeing open sky is to leave their homes and fight for the Imperium.

Note: It`s recommended to increase the following Attributes and Skills at least once, to reflect the homeworld`s origin: Agility, Initative, Cunning, Tech.
