]A blindfolded mage cannot see when he is astrally precieving because he cannot
]see throught the blindfold.

Still limited to flesh, eh? *sigh* I had hoped for more.

]Notice that the Combat mage has Low Light and Thermorgraphics, not Electronic
]Magnification. Besides if my memory serves me correctly the SSC does say mages
]need to use Optical Mag.

As usual, if you're going to make references to a published book, could you
please be specific enough that the rest of us who don't have the books
memorized can find it? That is, if you want your arguments to be taken for
more than mere conjecture. . .

]You may assume that Optical Mag is better than Electronic mag, but it is not in
]the rules. Besides by 2054, I'd dare say the Electronic mag is good enough to
]allow you to see as well and as far as Optical Mag.

*bing* I'm sorry, there goes the bell. We're all out of time here, so I get
to give you a hard time here. It states (although not explicitly in game
terms) in the SSC that optical mag results in a higher quality image than
electronic mag at longer ranges. That *is* in 2054, unless I'm mistaken. And,
following my own rule as aforestated, check the page on cyber mag mods in SSC.
It's there.
