Full Version: Hacking pool and Matrix Searches
Dumpshock Forums > Discussion > Shadowrun
Mister Juan
Very simple question:
If a decker does a matrix search... does he have access to his hacking pool?
I've always run it as no. Matrix searches use the skill Computers (Search Operations) and not Computers (Decking). Since Hacking Pool is used while decking, it is -- therefore -- not used for search operations. But that's the logical response, so the opposite might be canon.
QUOTE (Matrix page 130 last sentence beneath "The Search Test")
Characters cannot use hacking pool for search tests.
Mister Juan
Thank you; that is exactly what I was looking for.

You could probably use Task Pool though.
