The hand actually is an awesome idea. If I have a hand, no ones gonna ask to see the fingertip. They'll be asking how I lost a hand. I can be like the joker. ('You wanna know how I lost my hand...")

What nano bots would you recommend? Also, rather than Nitro, I think Kamikaze is better. +1 Bod, Agil and an Initiative pass for 1 less Wil and 3 less boxes of pain tolerence, and not quite as heavy afterwards.

Also, because I have more Bioware than Cyberware, the Cyberhand is only 0.07 extra essence. Can you stat it out for me? I'm not great with cyber rules.

I'm pretty sure the book limits gear with an F on it to state militaries and other such organisations.


So you've just got to assume that the fake papers in question place you in one such organization. With so many little nation states and all, it's probably not too difficult to get your fake ident's name put on some roster or other just like with any other fake license, though admittedly, it'd be harder to play off and it'd burn out pretty quickly. I mean, you can print out badges...

Sure thing.

Obvious Cyberhand: 5000
Customized for 5 AGI: 3000 (4500 to make it 6 AGI to start)
Autoinjector 6 doses: 500 (used) [0]
Fingertip Compartment: 375 (used) [1]
Orientation System: 625 (used) [1]
Nanohive Rating 2: 10.000 (used) [2]
Neural Amplifier - Limbic Rating 3: 15,000 - Adds 3 dice to all Intuition-linked tests (unless engaged in combat.)
Neural Amplifier - Neocortical Rating 3: 15,000 - Adds 3 dice to all Logic-linked tests (same)

If you want to bump it up to a forearm, you can fit more than twice the goodies inside. Things like +3 AGI for 750 +1 Bod for 200 And 2 more Capacity slots for either 1/1 B/I armor (dirt cheap) or an Ultrawideband Radar system to see through walls (costs 12,000 for lvl 4, but that can see through blast doors or multiple walls. Expensive, yes, but with this and Orientation System, you've upgraded to total personal omniscience regarding your surroundings.)

Also, any nanohive is only 2 capacity, so you can get a used rating 6 one (Normally this would cost you 2.4 essence) shoved in there (30k plus finder's fees,) and have nano systems like woah. Oxyrush nanos to let your hold your breath for up to 2.5 hours and give you up to +5 dice on fatigue tests. Try on some Universal Nantidotes, O-Cell nanos to give you up to 9 dice against Toxins and Diseases, or use Anti-Rad nanos reduce the effective power of Radiation by up to 6 levels. Six Levels means you could walk into a core breach situation it would count as less than minor (read:insignificant) radiation poisoning. Still would burn like like hell... Nano's modular nature means you can switch out what is supported as you need it.

I'd need to buy most of that after char. creation. Probably get the obvious cyberforearm and the fingertip compartment now (along with customizing it to be the same attributes) and get the rest later.

Unless I drop cerebral booster. That'll drop my logic back to 3 for combat though. Is that bad, persay?

Only if it's cybercombat, or if you're doing first aid in a combat zone.

Or if the character is, yaknow, an Infiltrator, who happens to need to open maglocks and such. grinbig.gif

That Neocortical stuff helps to offset that, of course. smile.gif

Bye

Off Duty soldiers are not allowed to carry assault rifles under any circumstances what so ever. If you DO have a full platoon of US marines running around with you, no one will ask for your papers.

Also: If a US marine is wandering around the Sydney CBD, any number of papers -legit or otherwise is not going to stop the Australian Government for arresting his arse.
