[SNIP Maria discussion]

Spoilers for the Module Mecurial (Probably not necessary, but... :))





Ok, that's good :]

Keep in mind a few things about the Lovely Maria:

The Module Mecurial is now 6 or 7 years old, and depending on the outcome
of the module, it was highly suggested that she pretty much retires with
Hernandez. And after that long, skills get lost, cyber could be removed
and replaced with "real meat", personality disorders can be fixed, and she
may have a family.

Nothing has been said about what happened to her since then, despite her
being one damned cool character. Other than a brief joke about her doing a
"country music concert" in PoaD, there really isn;t anything.


The other major thing is that not all promo and character cards have to be
ultra cool and powerful, though I do agree that this is a fairly tame card.
However, she is the only character with 2 Fame (effectively, after paying
for her upkeep), and there may be a way in the future to reduce upkeep
costs on Prime's and others...

The big questions I have are these:

A) Who produced the card? FASA or Fanpro? (It does seem a tad
underpowered for a Fanpro Product :))

B) Is the artwork cool?

C) Would I put Maria Mecurial in the stove?


Bull, aka Steven Ratkovich, aka Rak, aka Chaos, aka a lot of others! :]

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.
