So what sort of things are in the "must be in the book" for the upcoming RPG game?

I found this, from the first year of the comic:

The BH-209's variable mag-bottle aperture allows for full control of beam width, which can be dialed from a relatively narrow 1cm setting to a splashy 10:6 expanding cone (6-meter beam diameter at a range of 10 meters) useful for crowd control.

Powered by a Striggs & Bratton 2-stroke microfusion plant, the BH-209 need never be recharged, provided it is allowed to "breathe" periodically. When primed and flipped from "safe" to "decidedly unsafe," the BH-209 cycles local atmospheric gases into the plant, producing a noticeable acoustic effect. While this hum is stealth-defeating, many law-enforcement agents have reported that it serves as an excellent deterrent.

"the BH-209 need never be recharged, provided it is allowed to "breathe" periodically. When primed and flipped from "safe" to "decidedly unsafe," the BH-209 cycles local atmospheric gases into the plant"

Does that mean that it can work in a vacuum for a time, but will run out of power if not taken into a usable atmosphere? If so,
what would it's runtime in vacuum be assuming a full charge at the start of "decidedly unsafe" time? Didn't Schlock carve
"Jumpstar Priwe" into the side of their battleplate with his BH-209? Is there a strip showing it running out of power due to
no atmosphere? Just wondering if we have ever seen it run out of power (not counting the alcohol soaking incident...).

he ran out of juice falling down the hole in Oisri - the one time he actually died.
