I brought up Aiming in the Rules Discussion thread, but since there's a conflict in the book, I figured I'd mention it here as well. On page 206, the Aiming description indicates that you can aim as a quick action in single-shot and semi-auto modes. In the combat example on page 203, the character aims with burst-fire.

This is correct as anti-matériel (though anti-materiel would also be valid). In the military context, matériel is the proper word (from the French).

I think they are not, both seem female to me, and the facial markings are a staple of the Ghost morphs (plus I'd swear the image for the Ghost was used somewhere in the 1st ed books)

The spacing on the Retcon drug entry on the table is off. Nano is in the same column as the name (it says "RetconNano") and each other part of the entry is one column off.

Transhumans will one day be the Luddites of the posthuman age.

Help me get my gaming fix, if you want.

Yes, page 153 of EP-1 4th printing.

For some reason I associate this look (kind of sporty) to combat, while the one on EP-2 page 57 looks more skinny and ready to stealth.

I guess it's about what was the exact intentions of the authors.

I think it's the look of the Fury that is misleading me. To me Fury is kind of inspired from GUNNM/BattleAngelAlita and GITS's Kusanagi (among other things). The character in this one seems more like a detective a la Bladerunner to me, so I felt it was wrong, but your point on the body marks is right.

p. 46 Specializations. Incomplete sentence. I'm unsure if I'm allowed to use specializations to push my skill to 90 when the specialization applies.
