I my opinion Bioware should not work with Were creatures. Bioware is designed
to used in a humaniod body and is either tailored to a specific persons DNA or
esle just uses the type O - DNA. Were creatures, though they appear humaniod
ARE NOT, they are animals with the ability to appear human. Their DNA never
changes no matter what their form, it is a magical chagne to thier body. Normal
Bioware would not work because it is built for humans, and Were's basic form is
ALWAYS animal. To use bioware in a Were creature one would have to spend years
of research and spend LOTS of money to get it right.

Also - were creatures would probably not want to gewt cyberware or Bioware since
it is unnatural and not part of thier body. with the vampire question of
cyberware - the vampire had it before becoming a vampire. Think of inplating
Cyberware or Bioware into a Were creature like planting the stuff into a magte
and into an animal. A mage will loose touch with magic and an animal will go

Good set of points, Nightfox,
Come to think of it, everything Fluf E Kitten has was in her
before she blew the ritual that turned her into a were. And the stuff
"Steel Charlie" has took hours of ritual magic and a "Beta-Plus"
to put in. And it was installed in a country that has had shapeshifters
as citizens since the awakening. They have done the reesearch there,
they had to, a significant part of their military is shapeshifters.
But, it wasn't easy, it isn't available in Seattle (or many other
places), it wasn't cheap (The favors owed will keep Steel Charlie busy
for the rest of his life) and it was done with very special tech,
facilities and people.
Other than that, again, it's up to the GM.
