Quick question, it says adds +1 to Physical tests...is that the threshold of all physical test or -1 die pool for all physical tests?

Thanks for your replies.

I'm guessing this is a typo and was supposed to be "-1 to physical tests".

thank you, also saw that i fat fingered the -1 to die pool on my original post. I did a search at dumpshock. and the only thing i found was -1 die pool applied on someone mini maxing a windling py. adept.

Quick question do you think it should be the full modifier to Armor mod like a guant would have to add +50% or somthing a little less?

I would agree that it's supposed to be "-1 die to physical tests".
As for the armor mod, I would think something closer to 15% would be enough. I mean, from a balance standpoint he already has the die penalty, no need to severely hurt him further.

German version also says "+1 to all physical tests", so my bet is on the Threshold theory.

Sounds a bit extreme, but I suppose thorns would suck an awful lot...

On the face of it, this is reminiscent of the ED Rite of Thorns . . . i wonder if it's a metaplot element?

Probably more a transmitted metagene, reminding the Rite of Thorn. A good adventure hook for cross-over, but not a running metaplot.
Me am french, me am not speaking good english, but me am trying to correct this.

Would make it interesting if you ran into an Immortal Elf. Like, maybe, Ehran the Scribe while you're doing a run for him and his daughter, looking for artifacts... ;)

yeah i was thinking about that last night, my PC is dwelling in Tarislar and has heavy ties with Leasa walking around feeling like the Elf of the hour with his expanding Rep when some Old looking elf on the other side of the street Yells "NEVER again" and I become the badass elven torch of  +1 prickliness! While every matrix user in Seattle hears the background noise of Ha! Fraggin' Ha!
