Paradise City:Cyberware Catalog
This catalog is comprised of cyberware from GURPS Ultra-Tech, GURPS Ultra-Tech 2, GURPS Cyberpunk, cyberware inspired by other roleplaying games that I freely ripped off, and cyberware that just I made up. When cyberware is from a published GURPS supplement, I give the page reference for the supplement but do not give all of the rules for the ware, so you still have to go out and buy the books to make full use of this list.

No character point costs are listed for this cyberware, as it is assumed that cyberware will cost money but not points. All prices listed include the cost of the operation. Used cyberware must be heavily modified before it can be implanted into a new subject. For this reason, used cyberware will sell for 20% of original cost at most. This assumes that the cyberware is removed by a surgeon in a well-supplied operating theater – cyberware that is hacked out of a corpse on the street is more likely to sell for 5%-10% of the original value.
Price modifiers are multiplicative rather than additive. For example, if a piece of piece of cyberware normally costs $10,000, but receives a 50% price break for being semi-natural and a 20% price break for being unreliable, then the total price is $4,000 (80% of 50% of $10,000) not $3,000 ($10,000 -50% -20%). Ignoring this rule could easily lead to cyberware having a negative price.
Advantage Stacking Rule
The GM must decide on a case by case basis, but the rule of thumb is as follows. An item of cyberware may improve an advantage that a character already has naturally – for instance, if the PC naturally has Combat Reflexes, then an implant that provides Combat Reflexes will add bonuses to the bonuses the character already has. However, advantages given by cyberware do not stack with other advantages given by cyberware – two items of cyberware that each provide Combat Reflexes will only give one set of Combat Reflexes bonuses.
Disadvantage Stacking Rule
Things can always get worse. Unless the GM states otherwise, if an item of cyberware inflicts a disadvantage that the subject already has, the disadvantage gets proportionately worse. For instance, if a subject with the Gluttony disadvantage gains an implant that gives them the Gluttony disadvantage, their gluttony should be twice as bad as it was before.
The Weakest Link Rule
You are only as good as your cheapest component. A lot of cyberwear imposes penalties of some kind. Such cyberwear is very hard to compensate for: if an item of cyberware imposes a penalty, all cyberware that offers a bonus of the same kind does so at half effectiveness. For example, if a subject had a -1 to ST from one item of cyberware, and +4 to ST from other cyberware, the +4 would only count as a +2, and so the total modification to ST would be +1. The GM should follow the spirit of this rule even when no simple +/- modifier is involved – for instance, if an item of cyberware causes a subject to eat six times a day instead of three, then any items of cyberware that reduce the amount that needs to be eaten should function at half effectiveness. Unless the GM states otherwise, disadvantages inflicted by an item of cyberware may not be removed without removing the cybeware. For instance, if a character has the Bad Temper disadvantage because of their Aggression Booster implant, they cannot lose the disadvantage simply by getting a Personality implant – the Aggression Booster would need to be removed.
The Speed Limit
The human body can only move so fast. Bonuses to Basic Speed over +4 are acquired at half the rate. Thus, to get +4 to Basic Speed you would need bonuses that add up to 4, but to get +5 to speed, you would need bonuses that add up to 6. Additionally, when a subject is attempting a Dodge maneuver, speed bonuses provided by cyberware are cancelled out by the speed bonuses provided by the attacker’s cyberware. For instance, if the defender has a +2 Basic Speed bonus from their cyberware, and the attacker has a +1 Basic Speed bonus from their cyberware, the defender only gets a +1 to Dodge.
Unreliable -10%/-20% to price.
Breakdown Prone -10%/-20% to price.
Rejected -20%/-40% to price.
Appearance: Special – see below.
Semi-natural: -50% to cost.
Unnatural: -80% to cost.
The player should assign an appearance to each piece of unnatural or semi-natural cyberware. Unless the GM rules otherwise, cyberware that does not look natural should be in a prominently visible location (assuming normal clothes) or cause some other easily noticed side-effect. Such side-effects can be physical, such as making the body a strange shape, or behavioral, such as making the subject’s hands shake. All the same, the GM should feel free to allow non-natural cyberware to be non-prominent if doing otherwise defies credibility – there is no plausible explanation as to why someone would have to have a watch implanted in their forehead rather than in their thigh and no plausible explanation as to why doing so should cause the subject to behave in strange ways, so an unobtrusive watch implant should be allowed. Similarly, if someone gets a non-natural sexual implant, there is no reason why should not be able to hide it in their pants. On the other hand, it is easy to come up with plausible side-effects of having one’s nervous system interfered with, so a side-effect should be required for non-natural nerve augmentation – whether it be nervous tics, chattering teeth or a strange walk.
Keep in mind, the more unnatural a character looks, the more monstrous they will be assumed to be by society in general. Cyberware that does not look like a natural part of the body marks someone as a punk, a rebel, an outsider and likely a criminal. Such cyberware makes a public statement and the statement is “I am not human”. There are times when this is useful, such as when trying to intimidate someone or to impress a street ganger. On the other hand, there are times when this is a major hindrance, such as when you want someone to trust you. This effect varies depending on the cyberware in question and the subculture being dealt with. For instance, a visible datajack might actually mark you as a dedicated and capable employee, though you would never land the really good promotions.

(There is never a price break for obvious fashionware, since fashionware is meant to be seen)
Altered Height: $8,000 per inch. Bio-Tech p. 170.
Biosculpting: Var. The PC may change their appearance, as per the rules in Bio-Tech p. 169. Anyone with enough money can be gorgeous (or hideous!). $2,000 to shift appearance down one level. $4,000 to shift appearance up one level. $8,000 to shift appearance 2 levels up or as far down as desired. Double cost if the operation makes the character Very Handsome or Very Beautiful.
Chemskins: $2,000. The character may change their skin to a single pre-determined color or pattern at will.
Cosmetic Crosshairs: $100 per eye. The character has fake crosshairs on one or both of their eyeballs, suggesting that they have a weapon link. They are at -1 to Vision and are at -1 to hit with ranged weapons fired by the hand on the same side as the crosshairs. The crosshairs may give a bonus to intimidation rolls at the GM’s discretion. For an extra $200 per eye, the crosshairs do not obscure vision.

Bionic Hand: $10,000. ST +1, DR 2. Ultra-Tech p. 209. Raising ST by 1 costs $4,000, up to +3 (for a maximum of +4 total). Raising DX by 1 raises the price by $100,000. Each additional +1 to DX increases the cost by 50%. For five times the price, the character may have a hand with Micromanipulators (UT 2, p. 96). For $10,000, the hand has the Sensitive Touch Advantage. Dropping ST drops the price by 10% per point, to a minimum of ST 7. Dropping DX halves the price for every point by which DX is lowered. A Gripper Hand (UT 2, p. 96) drops price by 90%.
Bionic Arm: $20,000. ST +2, DR 2. Ultra-Tech p. 209. The arm includes a bionic hand. Raising ST by 1 costs $4,000 a point, up to +4 (for a maximum of +6 total). Raising DX by 1 raises the price to $240,000. Each additional +1 to DX doubles the price. For 2.5 times the price, the character may have an arm with Micromanipulators (Ultra-Tech 2, p. 96). For $15,000, the arm has the Sensitive Touch Advantage (or $10,000 if only the hands are sensitive). A Tentacle Arm (UT 2, p.96) doubles the cost of the arm. A Telescoping Arm (UT 2, p. 96) is $25,000 for each extra hex of reach (or $10,000 if a Tentacle Arm). Dropping ST below 14 drops the price by 10% per point, to a minimum of ST 7. Dropping DX halves the price for each point by which DX is lowered. A Gripper Hand (UT 2, p.96) drops price by 80%. A Striker Arm (UT 2, p, 96) drops price by 90%. A Striker arm is not capable of mounting any kind of hand.
Bionic Leg: $20,000. Ultra-Tech p. 209. ST +2, DR 3. With 2 legs, gain Basic Move +1, Super Jump 1. Raising ST by 1 costs $4,000 a point, up to +4. Raising DX by 1 raises the price to $240,000. Each additional +1 to DX doubles the price.
Cyberlimb Armor: $10,000 per point of DR given to a limb. Each 3 full points of DR give 1 PD, to a maximum of 6 PD. A character with a Full Cyborg Body may also armor their head, or, at twice the cost, their torso.
Hand Replacement: $150. The character’s hand (and possibly much of the forearm) has been replaced with an artifact of some kind, usually a weapon. The character gains the One Hand disadvantage and other inconveniences appropriate to whatever they have sticking out of the end of their arm. This “cyberware” must appear unnatural and there is no price break for doing so. The $150 only pays for the artifact to be implanted – the artifact itself must be paid for separately.
Hidden Compartments: $1,000. 2 lbs. See Cyb, p. 32.
Limb Replacement Transplants: Varies. “Non-human” limbs available. See Bio-Tech p. 175.
Brass Knuckles: $150 per hand. +1 punching damage.
Chem-Coater: $10,000. Each chem-coater can coat one retractable weapon with a dose of a chosen drug. The coater can store up to five doses, and each time the weapon introduces the drug into someone’s system, that dose is considered to be used up. For $15,000 total, the coater allows the character to choose whether to coat their weapon or not each time it is extended. I stole the chem-coater from someone’s website – I forget who.
Claws: See Cyb, p.32. $2,000 per limb for short claws. $4,000 per limb for long claws. Hardened plastic adds 50% to the cost. If the claws are being implanted into a bionic limb, halve the cost. Add $1,000 to cost for Super-Alloy claws (UT2, p. 103).
Cranial Implants: [See UT2, p. 105] Deadeye: $8,000. Eyebite: $10,000. Headbanger: $12,000.
Cyberfangs: $1,000 or $3,000 if retractable. See UT2, p.100. May have a Poison Reservoir.
Elbow Brace: $5,000. +1 Judo, +1 Wrestling, +1 Lifting Strength, -1 Acrobatics, -1 Climbing, -1 Escape, +1 Punching damage, +2 elbow strike damage. May take one in each elbow for cumulative effect.
Fastdraw Arm-Holster: $10,000. A weapon of less than 2 lbs is stored in the arm and launched into the hand at will, at +2 to Fastdraw.
Finger Implants: [See UT2, p.103]. (Bomb: $2,000. Rocket: $2,000. Scalpel: $1,600. Scissors: $500. Sprayer: $500. Combat Wire: $200. Zapper: $1,000.)
Forearm Razorchain: $3,000. A two foot retractable chain that is lined with razors is stored in the forearm. It is unbalanced, is wielded with the Flail skill, and does Swing/Cut damage. On any critical failure, the chain strikes the user at a random location. To retract the chain, the user must remain perfectly still for a second. If they retract the chain without doing so, they must roll vs Flail-4 or take 1d-1 damage to their hand, minimum of 1 point. If the chain becomes entangled or stuck in something, the character may be in big trouble. If the chain cannot be retracted, the cost is only $120, but the weapon is extremely inconvenient. Quarter all costs if the arm is bionic. For $25 extra, the razorchain has hooks along the sides. Any turn after the chain has hit and done damage, the wielder must roll successfully vs. ST to remove it. Each tug does 1d-3 cutting damage, minimum of 1. On any normal miss in a crowded or furnished environment, roll vs. Flail skill or the hooked razorchain has become attached to something it shouldn't.
Forearm Smallsword: $2,000. A retractable smallsword is stored in the forearm. The weapon uses the Smallsword skill at a -2 penalty to all attacks and parries. The subject cannot hold anything in the relevant hand while the sword is extended. The extension mechanism is not strong enough to actually unsheathe the weapon into someone. If it meets resistance before it is fully extended, it will retract again. Of course, once it has successfully extended, it locks into place and the owner may stab away. If the sword cannot be retracted, the cost is only $80 but the weapon is extremely inconvenient. Quarter all costs if the arm is bionic.
Hammer Hand: $5,000. The shoulder and elbow are rigged to throw particularly hard and fast punches and the hand and fingers are reinforced. The wrist and hand gain DR 4. Thrusting attacks made with the Hammer Hand inflict +3 damage and are defended against at -1. The hand is at +3 to resist wrist and finger locks. However, the hand has the Ham-Fisted disadvantage at the 5 point level. Hammer Hand includes the Brass Knuckles implant.
Heel Spikes: $4,000 per heel. UT2, p. 104. May also be placed in knees or elbows.
Hydraulic Rams: $3,000 per limb. Any limb with Hydraulic rams does +1 damage in hand-to-hand combat – the effect is not cumulative for weapons wielded 2-handed. If both legs have Hydraulic rams, add 1 yard to Move and jumping distance.
Joy Buzzer: $8,500 for Zap, $12,000 for Neurolash. See UT2, p. 104. Reduce base cost by $6,000 if implanted in a bionic hand.
Knee Brace: $5,000. +1 Judo, +1 Running, +1 Wrestling, +1 Lifting Strength, -1 Acrobatics, -1 Climbing, -1 Escape, -1 Stealth, +1 kicking damage, +2 knee strike damage. May take one in each knee for cumulative effect.
Lockjaw: $4,000. Double ST for the purposes of calculating biting damage.
Poison Reservoir: $1,000. See Cyb, p. 33. Halve cost if the reservoir is implanted in a bionic limb.
Ripsnake: $35,000. [Ultra-Tech p. 214]
Shin Plates: $750 per leg. Metal plates cover the shins. DR 4 from the knee down, including knee and feet. +2 damage if for kicks and knee-strikes, reduced to +1 if another weapon is mounted on the knee. Basic Move is at -1 but is not reduced further for having plates on both legs.
Spines: $5,000 or $15,000. Gives the Spines advantage at the 1 or 3 point levels. The spines are assumed to be retractable. Non-retractable spines cost only $500 and $1,500 respectively – this price includes the price-break for being unnatural.
Stinger: $1000. [Ultra-Tech p. 211]
Tentacle Transplant. $50,000. Replace your arm with a tentacle, gaining the Extra-Flexible advantage. Bio-Tech p. 178.
Weapon Implant: $8,000 per lb + weapon cost. See Cyb p. 33.
Weapon Mount: $1,000 per lb + weapon cost. [Ultra-Tech p. 212]
Xeno-Striker Grafts. The subject has an animal’s natural weaponry implanted. Claws, teeth, horns and stranger things are all included. Bio-Tech p. 178.
1. Partial. Any full-body armor can be bought at reduced cost if it offers only partial coverage. At 50% of normal cost, “partial” armor will cover only the torso, skull, arms, legs, vitals, and groin. At 25% of normal cost, “torso” armor will protect only the torso, vitals and groin.
2. Heavy. Armor may be classed as “heavy” at no additional cost. If so, increase its DR by 50% but reduce the character’s Speed by 1. Additional pieces of heavy armor do not reduce Speed further.
3. Thick. Armor may be classed as “thick” at no additional cost. If so, increase its DR by 50% but reduce the character’s DX by 1. Additional pieces of thick armor do not reduce DX further.
4. Thin. Armor may be classed as “thin” to reduce its cost. At 75% of cost, thin armor will provide 90% of normal DR. At 50% of cost, thin armor will provide 75% of normal DR. Armor may not be both thick and thin.
Boneplates: $10,000. ST +1. DX -1. 5 Extra Hit Points. DR 3 against swing damage. DR 3 against crushing damage. Punching, kicking, elbow strike and knee strike damage inflicted by the character is at +2.
Cardiac Jacket: $5,000. Eliminates damage multipliers for attacks to the heart.
Crystalweave. $10,000. DR 12. Due to crystalweave’s tendency to shatter, crushing and all kinds of piercing damage that penetrates DR are treated as cutting. Large piercing attacks still retain their damage modifier for size, but small piercing attacks lose their damage modifier for size. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Dermal Plates: $125,000. DR 7. Dermal Plates do not get the usual price breaks for looking unnatural. Instead, for $85,000, they will look real but feel unnatural, for $42,000, they will neither look nor feel real, and for $28,000, they will neither look nor feel real and will weigh 3 x ST lbs. For 30% extra, the armor is laminate.
Dragonskin: $10,000. DR 10 vs Burning damage, DR 1 against cutting damage, and 20 points worth of Radiation Tolerance. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Grizzlyfat Therapy: $4,000. DR 2 and the Very Fat disadvantage. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Laser Reflective Exterior: $24,000 per level. Laser Reflective Exterior does not get the usual price break for looking unnatural. Instead, unnatural looking Laser Reflective Exterior costs $20,000 per level. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Leatherskin: $5,000. DR 2. The subject loses all feeling in their skin. They will still feel damage that breaks or bypasses the skin. The subject is at -1 to tasks requiring manual dexterity (any task that the Manual Dexterity advantage would apply to). Limitation: Tough Skin.
Skin Sheath: $90,000. DR 5. Skin Sheath does not get the usual price break for looking unnatural. Instead, for $60,000, it looks real but feels unnatural, for $30,000 it both looks and feels unnatural, and for $20,000 it looks and feels unnatural and weighs 2 x ST lbs. For 30% extra, the armor is laminate. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Skintemper: $54,000. DR 3. Skintemper does not get the usual price break for looking unnatural. Instead, for $36,000, it looks real but feels unnatural, for $18,000, it looks and feels unreal, and for $12,000, it looks and feels unnatural and weighs ST lbs. For 30% extra, the armor is laminate. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Skinweave: $60,000. DR 1. Negates the damage modifier for Cutting and Impaling attacks. Reduces the size modifier of Piercing damage by one step (so pi++ would be pi+ for instance). AP ammunition negates Skinweave. Limitation: Tough Skin.
Subdermal Plates: $100,000. [Ultra-Tech p. 211 as Subdermal Armor]. DR 8 vs piercing and cutting, DR 4 otherwise, Tough Skin Limitation.
Throat Sleeve: $5,000. Against attacks to the neck, DR 2 and the elimination of damage multipliers. Does not affects attacks to the neck from behind.
Bionic Eye (Single): $15,000. Ultra-Tech p. 209. Nictating Membrance 2, Night Vision 2, Telescopic Vision 1. Halve cost for each of the following disadvantages possessed by the eye: Color Blind, Low-Res (25 point Bad Sight), No Depth Perception. Eye abilities may be turned on and off at will. Many people purchase only one cybernetic eye, but a character who can see something with only one eye has the One Eye disadvantage relative to it. All prices for eye modifications assume that the character has a bionic eye, although they can be purchased for an organic eye at twice the cost. All prices are for one eye only.

Bionic Ear (Single): $2,000. The ear costs only $1,000 if it possesses the Hard of Hearing disadvantage. Ear abilities may be turned on and off at will. Many people buy only one bionic ear, but an individual who is hearing differently in one ear will be at -4 on any roll to determine the direction from which a sound comes. All mods below require at least one bionic ear, but may be installed just as cheaply in two). Bionic ears come with adjustable volume as standard.
Acute Hearing: $15,000 per level. [CYB p.36] Price is halved if the ear is “sensitive”, in which case each level of acute hearing will result in a -1 penalty on any roll not to be stunned or deafened by a loud noise. Gyrobalance: $8,000. Gives Perfect Balance. [Ultra-Tech p. 211] Requires two bionic ears.
Nightingale $5,000. When sleeping, an unusually loud noise is noticed on a Hearing roll, just as when awake. Subject will be immediately awake and aware. Nightingale may be turned off at will.

For cyberwear that alters the subject’s voice, additional price breaks are available if the subject no longer sounds normal. At 50% of cost, the artificial nature of the subject’s voice will only be noticed by those who concentrate on the sound of the voice, or who spend significant time with the subject. At 20% of cost, the artificial nature of the character’s voice is obvious.
Audiovox: $25,000. Audiosynthesiser for musicians and those who like to make strange noises. For $35,000, it has Pattern Recognition and can allow the user to mimic recorded voices and sounds.

Neural Jacks and Cybernetic Links
$5,000 [Ultra-Tech p. 217] A Neural Jack is required for a cybernetic link. The character may have as many links as they like, but only one link can be in use at a time, and the price of additional links is that link’s base price multiplied by the number of links the character will have – for example, a second link costs twice the listed price. A character can upgrade their link by paying the difference between the costs of the two links + $1,000.
Cybernetic links include:
Body Link (The cost of making the body “interface ready” is included. +1 to Acrobatics, Dancing and Hand to Hand Combat Skills: $5,000: +2 to Acrobatics, Dancing and Hand to Hand Combat Skills: $10,000. +3 to Acrobatics, Dancing and Hand to Hand Combat Skills: $20,000. +4 to Acrobatics, Dancing and Hand to Hand Combat Skills: $40,000

Computer Interface: Requires a Neural Jack w/ Computer Link. Marquee Interface: $8,000. Icon Interface: $25,000. Environmental Interface: $50,000. Crude interfaces are cheaper, but tend to have unwanted side-effects, often involving loss of normal sensory input. Some suggested disadvantages and associated price-breaks are as follows. The disadvantages apply even when the subject is jacked into the net, but never interfere with perception of the net itself: Aural: Hard of Hearing -15%, Deafness -25%. Olfactory: No Sense of Taste or Smell -10%. Optic: Mild Static in One Eye for -1 Vision rolls -5%, One Eye -20%, Mild Static Both Eyes for -3 Vision rolls -15%, Bad Sight (Bad Focus) -30%, Blind -60%. Speech Centers: Stuttering-15%, Mute -30%.

Installing a reflex trigger edits the character’s reflexes at the cortex level so that certain responses become instinctive. No character may have more than one reflex trigger. Reflex triggers only function when the character is conscious.
Block: $10,000. The character gains +3 to Block and Parry, but -1 to Dodge.
Counterbalance: $15,000. The character gains DR 1 against swinging or crushing damage, is at +4 to resist Knockdown or on any other roll to remain standing on their feet, but is at -4 to Acrobatics, Climbing and the Fall technique.
Dodge: $15,000. The character is at +1 to Dodge but -1 to Block and Parry and -2 to Fastdraw.
Drop: $15,000. Whenever the character chooses to fall to the ground with their arms covering their head, determine their position in the Turn Sequence as if their Move were 1 higher. When the character is surprised or stunned, they may make an IQ roll. On a success, they may fall to the ground with their arms covering their head, even though they could not otherwise have performed an action.
Fastdraw (Left Hemisphere): $15,000. +2 to Fastdraw skills. -1 to Block, Dodge and Parry.
Fastdraw (Right Hemisphere): $15,000. +4 to Fastdraw a weapon from a single specific location on the body. If there is more than one weapon at the location, the weapon that is drawn should be determined randomly. Any attempt to Fastdraw from a different location on the body is instead at -3. The character is at -1 to Block, Dodge and Parry.
Fire: $15,000. Whenever the character chooses to fire a weapon, determine their position in the Turn Sequence as if their Move were 1 higher. The character is at -1 to Block, Dodge, or Parry.
Flee: $20,000. When a character chooses to flee, determine their position in the Turn Sequence as if their Move were 1 higher. If the character is Surprised or Stunned, they may make a Will roll. On a success, they may run for safety, even though they could not otherwise perform an action.
Freefall: $8,000. The character takes half damage from falls and crashes and gets +4 to the Fall technique, but is at -4 to resist Knockdown or any other roll to remain standing on their feet.
Roll: $15,000. Character gains 1 DR against swinging and crushing damage, and takes -1 damage per die in a crash, but is at -4 to resist Knockdown or on any other roll to remain standing on their feet.
Sleepwalker: $20,000. At the instant in which the character falls unconscious, they may make a Will roll. On a success, they will perform a specific simple manual action before they drop. For instance, a character might have a Sleepwalker reflex trigger to press an alarm button, or a Sleepwalker reflex trigger to prime a worn grenade, or a Sleepwalker reflex trigger to pull the plug on a cyberdeck. Any time that the character is working with unfamiliar equipment, or familiar equipment positioned in an unfamiliar manner, the G.M. should assign a penalty to the Will roll. For instance, if the character has a reflex trigger to unplug their cyberdeck, their Will roll would be at -3 if the they wanted to unplug a deck that had fallen to the floor or if they were dealing with a model of deck they don’t usually use, and -6 if both the character and the deck fell to the floor or if the character is dealing with a model of deck they have never seen before. Obviously, the cyberflex does not allow the character to do anything that they don’t know how to do – if you don’t know where your grenade is, you can’t pull the pin, and if it isn’t obvious where the cyberdeck’s power cord plugs in, you can’t unplug it.
Strike: $15,000. When the character is attacking unarmed, or with a melee weapon, their position in the Turn Sequence is calculated as if their Move were 1 higher, they are at +2 to all attack and damage rolls, and at +2 to the Hit Location technique. The character is at -1 to Block, Dodge and Parry.
$30,000. Synthetic nerves and implanted into the muscle to incline it to move in certain ways, making a task more instinctive. Hard reflexes may be “maxed”, causing the subject to be even better at the task the nerves are set for, but worse at other tasks.

$20,000. A dreamcaster projects games into the subject’s dreams. Some dreamcaster games hone real-world skills. A character with a dreamcaster may name a single skill to improve. After 60 hours of sleep and a successful IQ roll, the skill is at +1 (maximum +1). The skill bonus is lost as soon as the subject dreams about something else. It is impossible to have more than one functioning dreamcaster implant. Hackers sometimes target dreamcasters with viruses, knowing that they can potentially cause great psychological damage. Games that teach the Hacking skill are a particularly favorite target for viruses.
Dreamcaster programs are usually free (the publishers fund themselves by selling ad space in the game). However, if the subject cannot access the internet to download new content, they will temporarily lose 1 IQ every two nights. Once the character has managed to connect to the internet again, the IQ will return at half the rate it was lost. A dreamcaster may not be switched off without surgery to disable it.
Dreamcasters come in a variety of makes. Most games are available for all systems, although some systems suit them better than others. Available makes include:
Generic: The generic dreamcaster will have a namebrand, but will have the same capacities as another generic dreamcaster.
Arcadia: Artistic skills may be dreamed up to a maximum of +3. The subject gains ten or more points of mental disadvantages. Appropriate disadvantages should reflect a disconnection from reality, so mental illness would be appropriate, for example, but not Codes of Honor.
Bushi: Combat skills may be dreamed up to maximum of +2. The subject gains the Nightmares disadvantage.
Oracle: Mental skills may be dreamed up to a maximum of +2. The subject gains the Migraines disadvantage.
Phantom: Computer skills may be dreamed up to a maximum of +2. The subject gains -1 to all social skills.
Zeon: Physical skills may be dreamed up to a maximum of +2. The subject is at -1 IQ.
