1. Scorpio and Static are in the safehouse. Static gets Black Hammered
my opponent's Fastjack and loses. Can Scorpio take the damage? (I jump
front of you in the Matrix!)

I feel your pain about the guard ability. I'm not sure about this
one, but I don't think so. In real life, it is like static is taking
damage to his brain, and I don't think that Scorpio can do anything
about this.

2. Scorpio and Static, again in the safehouse. My opponent (the
plays Riots. Can Scorpio take his two and Static's two?

3. Same two, safehouse once again. My opponent (same punk) uses
Can Scorpio take his 1AP and Static's 1AP?

The way FASA told me about the guard trait, was that if it was a "world"
effect, (Highway showdow, riots, and whatnot) then your not able to ude
the guard ability. The reasoning is that Scorpio is busy taking the
damage instead of running to get infront of the damage.

4. Instead of Guard, why didn't they make a less confusing trait...
say, phasing? :-)

In magic terms the answer would be if you had a (don't know the
spelling.) J. Centuare (Can be target be spells and effects) he can
still be Wrath of Goded.
