I'm not going to pick apart this item because most everything I was going
to pick apart has already been picked.

But responding to Jason Carters post about the RazorTasor having to go
against full impact, I have a real problem with that.


Tasers are just plain nasty, as I've talked about before. They are much
more nasty than ShadowRun gives them credit for. I also cannot see how
any type of armour can really protect you unless it is specifically made
of insulating material that keep you from grouding the charge through your
fragile body. (for example, rubber boots would very likely save you, if I
understand my several-year-old high school physics).

Of course, to add in Game Balance{tm}, you have to give some kind of a
defense against these things. Armor obviously makes sense.

In any case, I'd leave the RazorTazor at 1/2 Impact because it makes sense.
