Thanks – I’d skipped from 1st edition to 5th, so missed a ‘few’ things along the way.

While you're considering your next actions, you can assume that - through shared biomonitor information - you all know what happened to Ité. You don't have to wait for Shiriki to officially tell you ICly. What to do with the giant slab of meat is an important question.

Are there descriptions of the Jackpointers at all?  Have an opportunity in my game to terrify people by giving Kane a cameo, and I realized that I don’t know a thing about him physically (race, ‘ware, preferred weapons, whether he looks like a total badass or more mild mannered at first … )

Many JackPointers are described in the Street Legends sourcebook and two digital supplements: Ten JackPointers and Street Legends Supplemental. All of the stats are Fourth Edition, but easy enough to convert. Kane has a full profile, stats, and picture in Street Legends Supplemental (p.13-17).

Global economic meltdown, huh? That would've been interesting to see.

4e, iirc, used the lower of the two base dice pools.
My bad. Then I would use that. Yes, you can do sword in one hand and a pistol in the other. Rule of Cool and all. But don't expect it to be nearly as effective as just using one or the other.

I've heard that it was conceived as an excuse to justify why everything, especially augmentations, is more expensive now. Seems like a lot of work for something that could be explained by inflation.
Inflation works as an excuse when it is a small change. Wired Reflexes, for example, went from 11k/32k/100kk to 39k/149k/217k between 4th and 5th. Which means that if this was due to 'inflation', that would be inflation of 200-400% in the course of a year or two (from beginning of Dragon Civil War to the new edition coming out). That is the kind of thing you see in global economic meltdowns, like the Great Depression.

I have to agree. CFD is a plot device. There is no real cure for it until the Devs say there is... and I doubt its going to be soon.

There has been a lit speculation as to 'why' CFD was brought in, ranging from an excuse to remove nanotech from the game to trying to create a 'technological boogieman' to threaten players with...

I don't know the real reason, and don't really care. For me, CFD is fringe plot point that doesn't get a lot of attention other then as a device to excuse random changes in personality among villians...

Hey, at least they didn't ask "Is that one question for each of us?" or "Can you give us a minute to decide what question to ask?"
