I seem to recall in one of the novels a runner with cyberware becoming
awakened. I can't remember for sure, but it seems to me the cyberware may
have been burned out of the character at the end of the book. With this in
mind, how about allowing the card to be played on any runner with the
penalty that his cyberware is trashed?



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.
