Just scanning the doc, it looks like regeneration is just an optional power for infected, not shapeshifters.

Having multiple chargen systems that all add up perfectly in the end is simply impossible.  Certain archetypes are easier/better made using certain systems; it's just the nature of the beast.  I've always allowed players to use whatever system they like--I honestly don't care.  I'd rather have every player create exactly the character s/he wants then have every single character at the table +/- 5% of one another.

Yeah I did a document search and no regeneration. That is to big of a game changer in shifters, complelty kills every other edition and even the shifter NPC found in 5E as an opponent...not saying anythibg harsh but I hope this is an over sight and not how it is meant. Kills shifters

If it was an oversight, I'd assume that Regeneration to them would be like the Regeneration for Infected; nobody starts with it, but it can be acquired at a later date.

Hope this is a typo, otherwise this is really going to cut into my werebison burger business, pun intended, where all the cuts of meat are always fresh. ;)

My favorite pages so far are p.253 and onwards. No need to improvise prices anymore!

I found the story with Netcat and Slamm-O rather funny(especially with the typos in the erotic fanfiction "Netcat held the toaster to her naked bosom, his perky elven brown nipples..")...
I've been working a long time to make horrible shipping fanfiction in Shadowrun canon.   ;D

I'm not done with the book, but I have to say that I'm seriously impressed thus far.  The character generation alternatives are really original!  And the last section I read was about the Infected, which was a fantastic in-universe piece.  I especially liked Red's section, but I've always had a soft spot for Hannibelle.  Plus, I love her name.

So far, this is one of the best-constructed books I've seen.  I'm using a PDF, so when I refer to construction I'm referring to layout, organization, etc.  The sections flow really nicely, and the references to other books are reasonable and I haven't seen any contradictions yet at all.  Really great job, everyone!

I'm gonna let you in on something: I like Red's section better, too.

Kevin's bit with Red at the beginning was the absolute heart and soul of the piece; if it didn't work, nothing else that followed would work either, IMO. This was a player's companion, so it had to show Infection from a player POV...and I, frankly, couldn't have written that POV half so well. I've got an entirely different perspective on the Infected and Infected PCs.

Then he dropped that into my inbox. "Well," say I to myself, "that part of my life just got easier." He knocked it out of the damn park; I'm not sure it's landed yet.

I liked that the Infected in general seem to be both more human and more monstrous at the same time.  They are metahumans, and therefore sapient, but they are dealing with a truly horrific viral infection that overrides their personalities and the things that made them (meta)human to begin with.  It's a nice piece in that it gives the players and the GMs a lot of understanding over the mentality of an Infected character.  Now we need some Dzoo-noo-qua fiction.  :)

Pretty much since it was legal, I've had a no infected rule at my table.  Now I'm forced to reevaluate that.

re: dzoo-noo-qua fiction

I'll see what I can do. :) We've had a goblin show up in Fire & Frost, so it's not out of the question.

Um...in a good or a bad sense of the word "re-evaluate"?

Excellent!  They're appealing to me for the first time ever.

Just be sure to familiarize yourself with the countermeasures to use against Infected, especially the ones pertaining to Mist Form as that will be something you probably run into a bit, so more secure areas will have wards, wood particles,  UV in the vents and such so the players don't get a free run.  Not saying every guard is going to have wooden bullets, but special response teams may well have a clip or two should the team trip the major alarms.
