Hey, I've just seen the Maria Mercurial card in a french magazine (Lotus Noir).
What a disappointment !
Let's take a look at the stats:

Cost: 6/1
Ok that's not too expansive for a prime runner.

No skill.
What a joke!

Special traits:
-Fame 3
Well that's only 2 nuyen earned with the upkeep cost...
- Hermit
Really useful.Thanks.
- Unique
Don't worry, I won't put too much of it in my game.

- She may not go on shadowrun.
Normal, with such a ridiculous threat rating ! (0/1).
I really think Fasa screwed up on this one. Have they forgotten the RPG character.
What about the wired reflexes ? The dermal plating ? The muscle augmentation ?
She's not even worth the upgrade as she can't do anything.
That's the same with her skills. She should be able to handle a fight better than a lot of
runners as she can be mean with a gun or even in a melee fight.
Well, it seems Fasa decided to make her be a figurehead only able to earn 2 miserable

I really hope it was a bad print or a treacherous joke...

so long,
