In Transhuman Physiology, an unmodified wound roll of 1-3 failed. This ability also fails unmodified wound rolls made against a targeted unit. Against those rolls, a -1 is inflicted. In addition, Armored Resilience is a negative wound roll.
The transhuman physiology and armored resilience powers can reduce the damage a unit takes from enemy attacks. Transhuman physiology increases the number of hits a unit can make with its standard attacks, while armored resilience reduces its damage by 1 to 4. Using Transhuman physiology, a unit can survive a squad of Wave Serpents or a squad of Dark Reapers.
The concept of vulnerability can be compatible with certain versions of transhuman physiology. The concept of vulnerability is commonly associated with disease, but it also applies to healthy people. Transhumanists are often interested in enhancing the capabilities of healthy people and minimizing the likelihood of infirmity.
Transhumans are essentially species that have undergone artificial augmentation to become superior to their original species. The means of augmentation can be scientific or magical. Some of the methods of transhuman physiology are discussed below. The term “transhuman” can refer to any species enhanced through artificial means.
Descartes’s Discourse on Method envisions a new form of medicine in which human beings can maintain a vigorous and healthy body and mind despite aging. Biotechnological interventions are already underway and can potentially change humanity’s nature. Understanding the potential for these technologies to be used in the medical setting is essential.
Transhuman physiology allows the use of red thirst to heal pre-red-thirst wounds. Natural rolls of 1, 2, and 3 fail, while natural rolls of 4 and 5 succeed. These effects do not apply to wounds caused by weapons, magic items, or sonic weapons.
Despite this disadvantage, red thirst is an excellent choice for healing. Its use in a Transhuman Physiology game can help players reduce damage and improve their movement and damage. The new relic provides 2 inches of extra movement. It also improves wounding on a 3+.
Blood Angels often abandon their advantageous positions to engage in hand-to-hand combat. This devastating approach to combat is characteristic of Blood Angels, and their assaults are often devastating, wiping out an underprepared enemy force. The Red Thirst is the Darkest Secret of Blood Angels, but it is also their greatest curse. The Red Thirst also brings a sense of humility, making the Blood Angels the most honorable of Space Marines.
Transhumanism and posthuman physiology are concepts that seek to alter the basic structure of human biology to enhance human performance. Transhumanists often fantasize about the end of physicality and the creation of immortal humans. Their belief in human power extends beyond biology to the application of technology.
The scientific and technological revolutions of the twenty-first century have pushed human beings past their limits. The consequences of this technological revolution are still undefined, but the cascading effects of posthumanism will affect every human being. We must consider how these new technologies will affect our lives to answer these questions.
Posthumanists have long stressed interdependence and overlap with other species. As a result, they have written about the conversion of human beings to posthumans and hybrid figures. However, this work is rather dense, and its jargon is hard to follow.
