Subject: Cyberwares and Biowares
for a long time when newbies have asked how to findout what a cyberware does ive claimed that most cyberwares and biowares had helpfiles. this is not technically true, of the 53 types of cyberware and 17 types of bioware in chargen at present 23 of the cyberwares and 5 of the biowares have helpfiles one would easily find. many of those not documented have no presently coded use, many will likely never be coded. I propose a series of signs in the chargen rooms selling wares stating which are not implemented and helpfiles for those others that are.
bodyware cyberware room
my understanding is such that the following wares are not implemented
stomach filter, trachea filter, blood filter
the following wares have no helpfile which i could find and here is my proposed text for their files
all varieties of bone lacing
covers your bones in a durable material granting improvements to your armor, body stat, and unarmed combat power. each type grants bonuses in line with the attributes of the material plastic grants 1 body and no armor, titanium grants 2 body 1 ballistic armor and 1 impact.
hydraulic pumps within your legs assist in jumping and landing
Systems Replacement cyberware
I know of no coded function for cyberskulls
as for fileless functional wares
cybertorsos grant 1 body and replace the ribs and skin with synthetic materials.
muscle replacement grants an increase in quickness and strength equal to rating
all of this is functional
climbing claws grant bonuses to climbing tests and can be used in combat
spurs, handrazors, handblades
each is a type of sharp thing sticking out of your arm or hand for use in combat they all use the cyberimplants skill. hand razors deal strL improved hand razors deal STR+2L hand blades deal str+3L spur deals STRM.
a very small storage compartment in your finger see also put and get
not implemented oral gun oral dart datalock
breakable tooth compartment
a very small storage compartment in your tooth see also put and get
Eye modification cyberware
not implemented eyegun, protective eye covers, possibly flare compensation
as for documentation there is a sign in a different eyeware doc explaining the abbreviations
LL is low light TH is thermographic fc is flare comp em is electronic mag OM is optical mag.
insufficiently documented are the Links
display link shows text on your eye image link shows video.
EM prevents spell targetting while om is obvious, both reduce long range combat penalties and increase directional scan range.
room cultured bioware
all of this works
raises intelligence by rating
raises initiative dice by rating incompatible with wired reflexes, move by wire, and magical initiative improvements
i know of no coded function for extended volume or nictating membranes though they would raise lung capacity (time till drown) and grant flare compensation
synthacardium grants dice to athletics tests equal to rating because of the additional strength of the arteries to pump blood
cat's eyes grant low light vision
muscle based bioware
increases strength by rating incompatible with muscle replacement
increases quickness by rating, incompatible with muscle replacement
increases reaction by 1 and grants 1 die for most physical tasks
health based bioware
not functioning nephritic screen and pathogenic defense
metabolic arrestor arrests the metabolism preventing harm from the body's failure to function properly while you are mortally wounded, increases time before death occurs from mortal wounds.
any recomendations for augmenting these helpfile suggestions or this recomendation of signage would be appreciated.
My Totem is good to me.
