11 xp with 53 techs, FWIW. I think it was still 10 xp with 51 techs.

You yank a rock out of your top hat and smash it for 13 melee damage. The attack came from an unexpected angle, avoiding the rat's defense.

The Evasion Negation is vaguely documented on the Top Hat Trick page — unconfirmed for Reflexes as lowest stat but likely also.

The rat dives for cover.

You open your third eye, bathing the area in golden light.
The rat tosses a bottle of burning liquid at you for 7 fire damage, but golden light weighs down its attack, preventing all of the damage.

I've triple checked this now but I'm still getting 4 base damage for

  • without adaptor, low SP
  • with adaptor, low SP
  • without adaptor, high SP

And then 7 base damage for with adaptor, high SP. It's very rare where we get a different message without some kind of additional bonus so maybe there's something else going on? It says it "cuts deep" but does not do bleeding damage. Could give a PvP effect I suppose?

No different message with thick cable or live cable weapons equipped, nor no weapon.

Arkaim asked me for a maze gang (I suspect he wanted a maze fang, but I'll oblige), full credit to Sam Cooke:

(Ho! Ha!) I hear something saying (Ho! Ha! Ho! Ha! Ho! Ha! Ho! Ha!)

That's the sound of the men,
Working on the maze ga-ang
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the maze gang

All day long they work so hard, til the stairs are going down
Unless they are twisting and shifting it all– it all around
You hear them fighting their lives away
Then you hear somebody say

That's the sound of the men,
Working on the maze ga-ang
That's the sound of the men,
Working on the maze gang

All day long they're saying, my my my my my
My fights are so hard
Give me deeper- deeper rewards
I'm thirsty, my fights are so hard
Woah ooo
Give me deeper rewards….

Does that change the opponents you find or just the XP gained?

Combat data:

It seems to work as follows:

  • If you successfully challenge the Third Eye Colors, you unlock the Seer combat and lock Third Eye Color.
  • If you lose/(tie?) to the Seer combat, you lock the Seer combat and unlock Third Eye Color.
  • If you win, you lock both those and unlock the 2x Third Eye Ganger combat.

When do we get the chance to buy idol branded cyberware? Uh asking for a friend.

Your friend can head to his local Zaibatsu distributor :)

Cheers!

Effects that don't seem to interact with this:

Also, it occurs to me that maybe the Writhing Flesh result varies based on your highest base stat. Strength is a fair bit higher than my next highest one, so I may not be able to check in the near future.

xerf confirms Melee Power is increased, Unopposed is not. Suspected Ranged/Fire/Stealth also applies. EDIT: Not affected: Etheric Power, Morale, When your target doesn't have a Technique, Defenses, Attribute modifiers, and negative M/R/F/S Power modifiers.

How neat. It does bring up other extremely pertinent questions though. Such as: When do we get the chance to buy idol branded cyberware? Uh asking for a friend.

Re: 2017 Podcast by ArkaimArkaim, 18 Jan 2017 23:41

Interestingly, at least to me, a lot of people in Metroplex would say the same thing. I mean, a fair number of Zaibatsu idols have inhuman cyberware like that. And you can literally buy that idol-branded cyberware from Zaibatsu.

But Zaibatsu's relationship with inhuman cyberware is very complicated. They produce it and promote it, but they also heavily associate it with crime and delinquency and youthful rebellion. So you don't get it if you want a job, you get it if you want to stand out. Which is its own sort of feedback loop.

The idols, for example, don't typically start out with cyberware. They'll apply for the job and some of them end up getting assigned cyberware, which they may have to pay for the install of. Zaibatsu doesn't want its idols advertising off-the-shelf stuff; it wants fans to pay a premium for the branded stuff.

Cheers!

It looks like taking any Eclipse at all is enough to get the skill, once you've unlocked the ability to do so. I got it from taking a single pill with +1 duration, for just 6 duration of Ocean Sight.

by CryptodynamicCryptodynamic, 18 Jan 2017 15:12

So I only JUST had time to listen to the podcast and my first reaction is this:

WHAT????

You're telling me that Zaibatsu would refuse to hire someone with neko ears? My immersion is ruined.

(for those not on the up and up or maybe so on the up and up as to have forgotten the podcast by now—Kinak talked on the latest podcast that there's a cyberware place that only lets people in with cosmetic cyber enhancements like elf ears. And said people let in on that club aren't accepted in the big corps like Omni or Zaibatsu and even Midgard)

Hmm… I would guess that the Unbroken Carapace technique probably works against ranged, though that hasn't been confirmed. But maybe you did enough damage to overwhelm that defense of that? That seems like a plausible condition for getting the carapace to drop.

Steps I did to get the mite carapace. Note that I was Etheric through all of this:

  • Put the personal tree back in my appartment. The initial message was the no water message, "The pot's soil looks more like sand."
  • Watered and fed the tree three times each.
  • Trimmed the tree.
  • Peered closer. Instead of the burrowing grub, I got the 2 crawling mites.
  • Beat them both (Using ranged techniques) and got 4 bristled legs and a mite carapace. I had a Myers sampling kit equipped, but I don't know if that's necessary.

Unfortunately, I did not copy the initial fight text, so I don't know if it was different from the default one.
