Now did you mean you wouldn't allow mages bioware even "with" the Shadowtech
rule? If so, why not? For Mages bioware acts just like cyberware. The only
real advantage they get is the lower essense cost of Synatic Accelerator.
As for non-magical characters, bioware greatly increases their power level as
compared to before. A friend of mine has a Decker with a Cranial Cyberdeck and
tons of bioware. He can run the matrix with the best and is as tough in a fight
as your average samurai. Now tell me who's upsetting game balance.
