Things I hope to see. Rules for playing Drakes and Spirit PCs. Rules for training critters that's a bit less handwavy then SR4's rules. And stats for many of neat monsters which I can shove anywhere.

Also, I hope it has biodrones in it. And if it could include the cost of metahuman biodrones, that'd be great.

What? I have an AI character that uses an anthroform drone, but if she took, say, a female elf as her new drone, that'd be pretty interesting, no?

Heh. Well, the character is an AI Face/Samurai, so the Uncanny Valley has drawbacks at times.

Why not go CFD?
Would you want to go into a place where the resident had a drum-fed shotgun and can see in the dark?

One, because CFD isn't generally allowed at chargen in most groups, and tends to damage the host's abilities, as I recall. Two, CFD locks you into a single drone. Three, the character is the pilot of an anthroform drone that was used for... very personal protection. Four, this idea is more fun for me. Five, possible misidentification as a possessing spirit to those who aren't as astute, yet still manage to find out I'm not who I say I am.

Though I have considered how to do similar with CFD, it isn't really a chargen thing, and you don't exactly have control of it after chargen.

Sweet baby Jesus yes!! Also, hope for Drake character rules. Biodrones would be nice. Please God, nothing with CDF in this one, please!!!!!!!!!!!!

Agreed. This looks like a 'training wheels' edition, that you can use to introduce someone to the setting, and then shift over to something like 5E or 4E. Like how D&D 5E is best used as training wheels for D&D 3.X.

Turned in Toxshaman for ¥1 million/4 once.

The gods answer you with every critter dual-stated with a normal and CFD version ...
