The book is missing a bit of context on p.83ff

- It says that Monads have all four matrix attributes, but does not mention how they are calculated

- It explains how you can repair Core Condition, but not how you can damage it in the first place, since Monads are never outside their home device (neither does the text mention if Monads need to realign once every 24 hours for 3 hours) - Data Trails mentions a Deicide Program able to do so, but never elaborates on that, so no rules exist for that.

Page 32-33 has an optional rule for playable free insect spirits. Yet there are some oddities.

1) Character generation mentions the Prime runner rules are required at first.
Then in 2 instances the rules instead mentions that the point buy rules are to be used.

Suggested change: remove any special character generation type requirements. The 42 karma cost should be enough, and doable with prime runner, priority, point buy and sum2ten. There is already precedence for high karma templates like mutaqua, nosferatu or drakes that can be used with other character generation systems.

2) The rules mentions spirit type a couple of times (think that refers to soldier, scout, worker etc) and that most free spirits are scouts. Yet the rules doesnt mention that the character would actually gain any of the spirit type powers, only its level of insecticide weakness. As all have the same degree of weakness except the soldier that seems an odd choice to make. As there is no mechanical reason to not choose soldier always.

Suggested change: remove the choice of spirit type, instead have it at severe, with the option of buying it down to light.
