May the light of Elbereth shine!!

I agree that the Grimoire is the best Shadowrun book to date.( I'm a mage
so this is a slightly biased opinion.) I don't see any problems in it that
would call for a revision. The new ideas that were introduced really blew
my mind. I doubt that I will pay the nuyen for a new Grimoire. For me to
buy it the book would have to be damn close to the Necronomicon.
I don't think the guard is the Cyborg you are talking about. 0 essence
objects such as computers and cars don't appear as black in astral space.
Tell your GM that if he wants to use the Cyborg in his game that he should
read the cyberpsycho rules in Cyberpunk 2020.

If anyone is really interested in running vampires in their SR game I
have the exact stats for them as published by FASA. Their quite powerful
and I would advise only experienced GM's to try running the PC vampire.
As for the gang called the Lost Boys, the stats for a vampire poser gang
are in an old issue of Challenge. I'll post those stats along with the ones
for the PC vampire after I get back from Easter.
In regards to the Elven decker/mage. It is theoretically possible to have
such a combo, but it isn't advised. As you add more metal to your body it
becomes more dangerous to cast spells. We mages walk a thin and dangerous
line and only the strong of will can resist the temptation that the tech-
nology brings.
