Structural Enhancement morph stunt

The Structural Enhancement morph stunt increases Durability by two, apparently to increase the physical stress track for the user sleeved into that morph. Is this bonus factored into the listed Durability for the morph, or in addition to the listed stat there?

If it's the latter, then this stunt appears on the Fury and Novecrab morphs, both of which use the lower of the morph's Durability or the ego's Somatics skill, which means that bonus is likely just going to push the Durability score over the user's lower Somatics rating.

Can anyone help me with this?

My understanding

My understanding is that the listed stunts are not included with the morph. They are simply suggestions for stunts that are good choices to match the typical configuration of that morph.

Because of that, the bonus is not factored into the Durability of the morph.

It's possible that morphs with Structural Enhancement are intended to use the morph's Durability, but if you don't run it that way, it's probably not generally a good stunt for a player to pick up on biomorphs or pods. If the player has a high Somatics, and sleeve into what is typically a low Durability morph, this stunt is a good way to retain their toughness.

Ah, I'd misread the Morph

Ah, I'd misread the Morph Stunts as being automatic. Thank you for the clarification!

Correct Horse Battery Staple.

Thanks, that saved me a few minutes. :)
