I'd say yes because if they can't use their spells/drones, why any runner
may use any firearms or HTH weapons ?? The rules are simple: 1 spell per
turn per sorcery, 1 drone per turn per piloting, 1 firearm/HTH weapon
(unless ambidexterity is in play) per runner per combat. All attacking
gears can always be used during any combat, unless some limitations
prohibit you from using it (number of spells per turn, etc.).


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.
