Hi!

A force lance can be "keyed" to a person, right? How? What's it called when you do that? And what happens if someone not keyed to it picks it up? I can't recall if it just stuns them, burns them, or explodes in their face.

Refresh my lousy memory. Thanks!

Anna

The force-lance can be keyed to a specific persons DNA, or it can be left unkeyed for anyone to use. If an unregistired users tries to ouse the force-lance it uses some of its stored charge to shock the person, possibly electricuting them as seen with Tyr in AGNO in season 1.

Point of note: Tyr went into convulsions after getting shocked by his force lance, and ended up spending time in Medical. The thug in Pearls was knocked unconscious and was fine by the next act.

Can't rule out the possibility that Tyr's force lance was somehow altered to make it more potent or something. Or hey, maybe Tyr was lying that he couldnt rememeber everything, so stayed in medical to see how it played out. Can't rule out everything  :ninja:

Tyr was also shocked in the final act, and recovered right away. :unsure:  :crazy:  I noticed all of this, the first time around. :down:  :mellow:

Well, no one ever said that the shock setting was fixed. Considering how hyperversitile the force-lance is it wouldn't surprise me if the defensive shock had a variable setting as well.
