Hey, just a quick post, wanted to clarify exactly what this character is equipped with?
Amal in the Arachnoid morph (p22) says 'Backup' under gear, but is that an ego backup, morph backup, or the mesh passive countermeasure backup?
I love this game, but darn if there isn't a lot of overlap in terms, and many things seem over or under specified.
For example, the character is in an arachnoid and has 'Extra Limbs (10)', but extra limbs isn't defined as a ware or gear that I can see - I don't think they count as a cyberlimb plus augment. Then also extra melee weapons says they can count for extra damage in unarmed combat, however the sample character's DV for unarmed melee is 3d6 and that bonus only comes from Pneumatic Limbs.
The extra melee weapons rule says extra limbs beyond 4 (four limbs? four pairs of limbs?) deal +1d6 DV per pair, but that would make the total DV 5d6 + 1d6 from Pneumatics right? I mean that sounds like a lot, so I can only assume I'm reading it wrong.
