It could be fun to have an equalist character who is also a Technomancer... a guy who is basically a living disgrace to his own ideals.

In either way, a couple of questions from my side.

1) Body augmentations or whatever(implants and such). How common are they? How costful are they? How much of that stuff I can stick inside myself without getting "Terminator" nickname or something and/or without going above my slightly-higher-than-average budget?

2) Ways to read books without help of Matrix the Almighty. Should I pull out a E-book all of a sudden and start reading it, will everyone around laugh at me saying "look at that old man" or something? I'm not even talking about paper vatiants...

I'll do my best to make my char a disgrace to anything I can, though not in this way =P

From what I read so far, I would guess implants are pretty ubiquitous. I'm definitely getting as much technological crap as possible, especially if it makes me look freaky. And AFAIK anything can be displayed over your normal sight, without any need for display or something. Visual data pumped directly into your visual nerve or something.

It can be displayed this way, but what I'm actually asking if it NEEDS to be displayed this way, or other possibilities exist.

@HexaDoken:

1.) It is dependent on your Essence (which is essentially you humanity). You begin with 6 and can't go below 0.1 because than you would not be human anymore. "Cybered" or "chipped" characters are considered excentric, but not especially weird. Personally I am a fan of "Muscle Replacements" and "Wired Reflexes". As a Magician or a Technomancer you want to avoid Cyberware and Bioware as the plague. Magic/Technomancy is linked to your Essence and they have other ways to gain bonusses.
2.) People tend to learn things by SIMs which are chips with the information and they hardwire it into their brain. That being said it is not really weird to have a E-reader function in your Comlink.
3.) Cyberware can be very obvious but does not need to be. Do keep in mind that higher security building will have scanners who can pick up on those things. It is not illegal to be cybered, but corporations keep more of an eye on you if you come into their building cybered to the gills :-P

@Klear:

Disgrace is good! :-D

No, basically the Holy Trinity is: Man, Magic, Machine.

You can be an excentric War Mage none the less ;-)

Some inspiration: Drone Riggers are awesome!

I am probably going to be a pure battle mage, since I do not picture hackers as direct fighters much, I would be the main muscle - the guy who's job is to break in, torch everything with a fireball or whatever, and quietly whistle away. That might change though as I still do not completely understand the magic yet. Still reading the core book. God that thing is hefty.

I know, right. Its a burden now, but it give you a load of flexibility and atmosphere which makes up for that ;-)

So ummm.. I've been putting this off for some time. I'm lazy like that. I think it's partially because I'm assuming we will need more than two players, though that assumption may not be true. If you were to tell me, that we can start as soon as me and HexaDoken make our chars, I'd definitely sit down, read through the rulebooks and have a char ready and fleshed out in a couple of hours.

On the other hand, if we are still waiting for other people to show interest (hello? Anybody?), it will lead to me putting it off a bit more, and this time without bad conscience =) I know myself.

In any case, I'd hate you to think that I've given up on this.

I'm still here, somewhere, in the shadows...

I think we can be fine with just two players, but if we can't, it's not like I can't wait some more time. Heck I'm still not even halfway through the book! I'm sure a true Lazyness Incarnate, huh. I can try to accelerate if needed, though.

Either way, I just wanna know that I'm still around too.
