THis comes right out of the RBT: "The addition of cyberware cannot
give a Runner more than the normal number of limbs (two legs, two
arms, one head)."

The only exception to this rule currently is H-man 2057, who's special
states he ignores cyber-limb restrictions.

BTW if H-man 2057 ignores limb restrictions, could he have 2
cyberskulls (heads) when the gear card is released? ;o)

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
