Description: The drone of a vibroblade is an unmistakable sound. A dull hum emits from any weapon bearing this weapon modification — this is the subsonic thrum of the blade being vibrated at an incredibly rapid rate. The blade itself gains no increased capacity for cutting flesh, however it does gain a tremendous bonus when slicing through objects and other material items, as well as armor plating. The modification itself is composed of a gyrochronatom and a resonator implanted in the weapon, along with various structural modifications to the weapon to better fortify it against conducting the vibrations of the blade.
Powers: Only slashing weapons can accept the vibroblade tech-mod. A weapon with the vibroblade modification ignores the first 5 points of hardness of an object, and ignores the first 5 points of damage reduction for creatures that are susceptible to special materials (but not holy, evil or magic damage). For instance if a creature has DR 10/thorium, a vibroblade item deals damage as if the creature has DR 5/thorium.
