Grey Mana tech/ Blight and astral disruption ...changing SR permanently ?

(1/2) > >>

Seras:
Hi guys,

I was thumbing through better than bad, and I think Humanis and the muslim world ( read Marrokko, Caliphate) are going to love this stuff and start to produce it en masse.

And they definatly will want the formula for themselves. I have already planned a nice run araound it 8).

Howver this does seem like a game changer to me. The ablity to remove Immunity to normal weapons from  (bug)spirits, will take away a lot of the scare.

This reminds of an earlier version of Shadowrun where anyone could hurt/attack spirits using their willpower...

What do you think ?

Jack_Spade:
You already could harm them with enough AP value on your weapon (There is also the Neija Martial Art technique that you could use to attack spirits). But it does level the playing field against mages quite a bit. Definitely an improvement all in all.

Michael Chandra:
The upside is, it helps against bug-spirits and such. The downside is: You still have to survive a combat turn before it kicks in. (Remember: 'Immediate' for drugs/toxins means end of CT.) And got to be careful with your own mages and spirits, since most spirits fight up close and personal. Your own astral rep will go significantly down if you force your spirits into this stuff.

The last few books do bring back a lot of things from earlier versions. Also Blight probably is a stopgap solution against how powerful spirits are in SR5. I don't expect it to be around in SR6, at least not in its current form, as the magic will get rebalanced anyway.

...would kind of take some of the fun out of season 8.

All Leela would have needed was a clip of DMSO/Blight Grenades in her MPL 12 jury rig it to fire a full auto burst into the cave at a spread and the threat would have been neutralised a mission early.
