A few questions that have come up in Recent Run
and I'm seriously reconsidering letting girls and my gay male friend play with us anymore...grrrr...
Can a Penile Implant be Hacked? and what kind of Havoc could a Hacker wreck if he got control of one?
Can Penile Implants be Modular?
eyeBliss
I'm thinking about the same kind of havoc you could cause by crushing up a few viagra and putting them in someone's drink, with perhaps more controlled results. You might be able to cause some significant discomfort or social awkwardness, but, contrary to popular opinion, the penile implant isn't doing any decision making. Regarding the second part of your question, I can't think of any reason a penile implant couldn't be modular when other cyber limbs or portion thereof can be.

What would the purpose be of putting a penile implant on your wireless PAN? It's got DNI, if it needs interfacing at all. If other people want to activate it, they certainly have other methods at their disposal.


How much more innuendo can we fit into this thread? Dumpshockers, go forth!

Like any other implants, it can be hacked if:
- Wireless access is on (which I doubt is the case most of the time)
- The hacker can reach the implant's signal, which most probably isn't the case, except if you have it broadcast everywhere "HEY LOOK, IT'S MY PENIS!". It is most probably in reach of your commlink, that the hacker can hack to get access to the penile implant.
Then it's up to the GM to decide what features a Penile Implant could have that would be accessible through a Matrix connection (as opposed to the nerve connection to the body). It'll obvisously have basic diagnosis functionality (to show the time until next revision) maybe some stats, maybe some functions that the user or his partner can activate or parameters that can be tweaked (vibration, size, speed, lubrication).
Maybe people into virtual sex/distant relationship could have them completely stimulated through a Matrix connection.

A simpler way would be to ask your player what (s)he wants to do and think whether there's a case of legitimate use where it would be useful to be able to do it from a Matrix connection. If there is, it's possible, if there isn't it probably isn't.

Ditto what Blade said. While the cyberware-hacking rules are very vague, certain assumptions are easy. You can access things that make sense to be accessible, you (the owner) can disable any given actions or connections (no wireless at all, slaved, etc.), and they don't have functions that don't make sense. smile.gif

And you can't control cyberlimbs easily or conveniently, because it'd break the game (and also not make sense).

Oh they are Much worse...

I posted this a while ago about one of our gaming sessions

The Runners where meeting a contact in Hawaii, at a small restaurant/bar. They were in search of some research data on a powerful magical item that S-K was also hunting for. An agent from S-K was following them to their meet and was recording the runners conversation. The runners, noticed the woman and as she left to go the restroom, excused themselves and followed her in (Both Runners are Female). The runners confronted the woman took her in a stall and proceeded to interrogate her, just as she was about to reveal her employer, the cranial bomb went off, sending blood everywhere. (Now the runners where rolling incredibly while ALL my NPCs where botching their rolls, and continued to do so) Only one server in the restaurant noticed the noise in the restroom and went to investigate the scene. The Server seeing the blood on the floor critically glitches a Logic + Intuition test and asks "Oh my god, is everything all right in there?" Lydia, the Mystic Adept peeks from the stall holding a tampon (She actually has them written in her Gear) says "Just having a very heavy period right now, thanks." That line stopped our group from gaming for about 20 minutes as we were all laughing so hard, we tried about two times to get going again and failed. The combination of bad NPC dice rolls, timing, and funny line, had me laughing harder then I have ever remembered when gaming. The line only gave the runners half a minute till other staff came to investigate, but they got out.

Best Reply to that post about Tampons and RFID tags from Sengir

This is your friendly Mega-Mall Network. Your tampon has just reached 75% capacity you do not seem to be carrying a spare one. Proceed two aisles down to your right for this week's special offers in female hygiene, with NERPS for perfect protection in all situations.

Girls are often JUST as dirty as guys, perhaps even more so.

Good luck ever getting them to admit it, though.

Guys don't need to admit it. We have somehow managed to go through life hopping on one foot because the other one is constantly in our mouth.

My penile implant is only accessible via skinlink.

When my girlfriend read Augmentation, she was upset that while there was a penile implant, there was nothing for the ladies. She suggested something that changes flavors, like at a malt shop. Half my group, the girls, then spent the next half hour talking about various vaginal implant cyberware options while the boys looked embarrassed.
It would have been hilarious had it not brought the game to a halt.

Can I just get malt flavor?

Great, now I have an idea for a titty bar where the women serve you draft from their cyberbreasts...

Hacking cyberware for giggles is awesome.

My technomancer did it to one of our targets a while back. He had a Balance Augment (or some such device) as well as Cybereyes. While he was using a stationary bike, my technomancer hacked into the guy's PAN, then hacked into the stationary bike he was on. He also hacked into the stationary bike and set it to randomly adjust resistance, then set the guy's Balance Augment to adjust randomly every few seconds, then shut his cybereyes off.

He pitched foreward, slammed his face on the bike, then hopped off only to go staggering off crashing onto the floor.

Good times.

Actually, they... do have cyberglands in Augmentation.

So you can load your MP3s onto it, of course.

Is that Marvin Gaye in your pants or are you just happy to see me?

Well, I do need to fill my quota for penis jokes today....


A Blood Circuit Control System would work as a cock ring.

Well,it gives logging/plugging in a whole new meaning . .

Don't forget that, in Shadowrun, "Slot" is another term for f***. nyahnyah.gif

EDIT: Which just made me think of a whole new meaning to "Slot and Run".

What, just because we like making you breeders squirm? nyahnyah.gif

A cyberpenis would have some sort of tactile sensors on it. If you hack it, you could mess with those - and that's gonna mess up a guy pretty good.

It makes me think about those hacker nanites - they infiltrate implants and turn on the wireless. So you walk up to the guy, spill a "drink" on his lap, and fun will commence...

Something like the Dentata in Snow Crash?

There is something to be said for a gland, either cyber or bioware, that releases artificial flavoring.

Wireless is a dumb idea for most cyberware, especially as the default, in a setting where people know that anything with a wireless link can be hacked.

But contemplating who might have it set on wireless... imagine someone who is the submissive in a 24/7 D/S relationship. If their dominant partner had wireless control over their submissive's cyberorgan, wow. Talk about total control. It's even creepier when you think about something similar being done non-consensually, by metahuman traffickers.
Xahn Borealis
I always find it weird how everyone here's always so blasť about Bunrakus.
CanRay
I'm willing to bet that Wireless set-ups for cybernetics would be taking a nosedive after the Technomancer scare.
Bigity
Probably to avoid thinking about the realities of one. That's some black stuff to float around in your head.

It would be a dirtaction for a guy, usless in a straight fight, embarrassing in a bar but maybe, just maybe very, very useful if you can sneak the effect on an unsuspecting guard or decker.

A lot of guys are, to put it bluntly (pardon the pun), dicks. I know girls can be too, but IMO, the drek we do sometimes is fragged up. IMO, an ideal world should consist solely of women, with hermaphrodites for breeding.
