Similar to the “Fix It” skill, this schtick allows you to repair devices using only bare-bones equipment. If the computer is fried, the assault rifle jammed or the Geiger counter blown to hell, you can somehow make it keep going. This isn’t the same as fixing a device; this is more like postponing its breakdown until you’re done using it for the time being. If that busted pistol needs to work right now, you can probably coax a couple of rounds of action out of it. By spending a Fortune Die, you are able to coax the device in question to continue functioning until the end of the scene (or sequence if the object is a weapon). You may only spend one Fortune Die per scene in this matter.

This schtick won’t cause a gun to fire without bullets, improve a device beyond its listed abilities or otherwise perform something impossible—it merely extends the life expectancy of a broken object by a few minutes.

Once the scene is over, the object is rendered irreparable; no amount of repairs will get it to function again. Signature Weapon holders should take note before using this schtick on their beloved Smith and Wessons.
