 At this point in time, the only types of [[cybernetics]] allowed are artificial limbs, some artificial internal organs, and sensory neuroprosthetics such as eyes and ears.  Organic systems can be replaced with artificial systems on a one-for-one basis. ​ While these artificial systems can and sometimes do function at a significant percentage of the original organic system'​s capability, the technology to provide a perfect, 100% artificial replacement does not currently exist. ​ Players seeking a "like original"​ solution are encouraged to consider autologous cloned replacement parts, and are reminded that "metal is not better than meat, just different"​. ​ Some examples of verboten cybertech (and this is //not// an all-inclusive list!) are __Shadowrun__-style neural jacks for computer or vehicle operation, brain-boosters (enhanced processing),​ memory implants (chipjacks, internal storage, et cetera), and __Neuromancer__-style compact "​tiara"​ non-invasive electrode neural interfaces. At this point in time, the only types of [[cybernetics]] allowed are artificial limbs, some artificial internal organs, and sensory neuroprosthetics such as eyes and ears.  Organic systems can be replaced with artificial systems on a one-for-one basis. ​ While these artificial systems can and sometimes do function at a significant percentage of the original organic system'​s capability, the technology to provide a perfect, 100% artificial replacement does not currently exist. ​ Players seeking a "like original"​ solution are encouraged to consider autologous cloned replacement parts, and are reminded that "metal is not better than meat, just different"​. ​ Some examples of verboten cybertech (and this is //not// an all-inclusive list!) are __Shadowrun__-style neural jacks for computer or vehicle operation, brain-boosters (enhanced processing),​ memory implants (chipjacks, internal storage, et cetera), and __Neuromancer__-style compact "​tiara"​ non-invasive electrode neural interfaces.
