We have a adapt who would like to Sustain a buff spell for a extended period of time

Is there any checks he needs to do to sustain or does he just sustain it

Does our technomancer have to roll checks to sustain static veil or it just sustains

There's no roll.

Instead, you suffer -2 dice to everything ELSE you do while sustaining a spell/complex form.  And it's cumulative... so if you sustain 2, that's -4 dice to everything else.
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, you’re fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

No, roll and what SSDR said.  There is a Quality (Forced Concentration) helps with the -2 to dice pool.

Best,

...and you typically can't keep sustaining if you fall unconscious or fall asleep.
