They do.  The plates aren't numerical any more, but I see them more as barcode-like, similar to what you see with the Delorian after it's flying upgrade.

Morphing Plates hardwire meshed with Spoof Chips are a must-buy for 'Runners.

Arsenal, Page 105, BTW.

I agree competely

Well, Army Surplus is cheap and easy.  Even if it doesn't blend into high-end hotels well.

Then again, a good, high-ranking officer's uniform with a "Private" carrying the bags might make it work perfectly.  It's all about presentation.

So true indeed as to be utilised in my next Hotel Run. I like it :)

Just make sure that both the officer and the private can walk in lockstep, otherwise anyone that knows what to look for will break the scene in a second.

It's the little things, as I've said.

And that the only time the private is in front of the Gen. is to open the door or something like that

OT, but for some reason I'm reminded of an issue of "Punisher Max" that had Nick Fury taking off his belt and beating a four-star general like his pappy should have over a very, very stupid thing.

Well, one, he put The Punisher in a bad situation, and Nick likes the vigilante for some reason.  Two, the plan they put together was so idiotic that even I (A Civvie Puke) thought it was a bad idea.  And, three, he was called away from his hookers, "The kind that charge a lot by the hour."

I smiled seeing him (Old style WWII Nick Fury, too, BTW) pop into the Marvel Max universe.  I knew massive levels of bad assitutde was about to happen.

Punisher Max is a good Shadowrun "Sourcebook" series, as well.  It shows a person living under the radar with insane amounts of firearms and how he does it smartly.  Also, it demonstrates various forms of surveillance, tactics (Not sure how good they are, but hey, better than what you see in the movies!), and just how much ass one person can kick when really pissed off.

Same storyline, someone was about to approach and hurt a little girl that was about the same age as The Punisher's daughter before she was gunned down.  He'd already been beaten so badly he couldn't stand...

You can guess what happened.

I have to find those comics again now.

All my character's had Fake SIN that are named after someone else. My actual face broadcasts the identity of a certain Nicolas Machiavelli, and my Technomancer responds official calls in the name of Ada Lovelace...

Not just Max. There was a short run Punisher Armory series that greatly influenced my Shadowrun thinking back in the day.

Yes, but it is very, very, VERY hard to find them now.  It took me...  Seven years, three cities, and a trip to the US to get my collection.

Very useful, however, and does give a lot of ideas, as well as image ideas for weapons and other equipment that Shadowrunners might use.  Especially considering that they're likely to be working "On The Cheap" so the High-End (Or beyond, as we are talking "Microchip-Aided Punisher" here) Equipment he shows off would be in the Discount Bin at the Crime Mall, perfect for Shadowrunners to use.

In addition, a few pages are dedicated to training and "Off Time" practices which are great for characters to take into consideration between 'Runs.  Too many GMs forget that there are often weeks if not months between Shadowruns at times.  What do the characters do with their time off?

One of the rules I implemented was that everyone had to have at least one knowledge skill that was a "Hobby Skill".  The Pre-Fab characters come with one, after all), and if they don't explicitly state what they're doing, that's all they do.

"Wait, you spent all month watching JUST Urban Brawl?"
"Sure, the College Playoffs were happening in Russia.  I had to pirate a LinguiSoft and I don't think I understood the announcers too well, but it was really interesting how the game is played over there, did you know..."
