I can just see a group of freaked out Runners going into a All-Night Hardware Store Chain, the Troll blocking the door with the largest thing around (Himself), while the rest of the crew corner the guy on duty, "We need your most potent, toxic, horrendous, illegal insecticide you have in the back room RIGHT FRAGGING NOW!"

"Um, dudes, why?  That stuff causes like cancer and stuff.  In minutes."  *Stares in horror as a Troll-Sized Cockroach beats against the shatter-proof glass*

"Right fragging now, man."

"Yeah, you can cut cancer out.  Can't cut out dead.  I'll show you were it is."

Seriously, Fizzy, STOP THAT.  :o You're giving me evil ideas and I don't think you want to see where I take a comment like that.

Unless, of course, you like the bugs... Is that it? You like bugs? You want bugs? I can give you bugs, Fizzy. Oh, yes I can...

Bwhahahahahahahahaha... ahem. I mean, stop giving me evil ideas, darnit!

Bugs? [munch, munch, munch], Oh yes, I like bugs. [munch, crunch, munch], They're very good. They are, [crack, pop, munch], better than hugs. [munch, munch, munch] But not better than hugs from [gulp] bugs. [toothy grin]

I GM, so bugs are good, case in point: http://forums.shadowrun4.com/index.php?topic=1417.msg16594#msg16594

Hmm. I wonder if Jason will let me talk publicly about Buggagedon and Gnats of Doom.

 :o Oh, wait. I didn't say that. There are no Gnats of Doom. Honest.  :-X

One of the scariest things I ever came across in Shadowrun was a Wasp/Troll bad merge when we were hip deep in Bug City.  the size and strength of a troll, boosted by the bug spirit, plus the chitinous armor and wings of a Wasp. 

Yes, the bugger could FLY.

Couple that with the Hive Mind/Shared Willpower ability bugs had back then and the fact that the Wasp Queen for this nest was one of THE biggest spirits in the city (Force 16, IIRC), and *shudder*  Give me Cyberzombies any day :)

Mosquito Spirits in Winnipeg scare me.  They're already big and mean enough to hold their own in a fist-fight with me.

SAMs, don't leave home without them.

You know, I was just looking over Universal Brotherhood the other day and, in it, there's a baby that's got a bugmerge, kindasorta. (The mom was preggers when the merge happened. In the name of Science! they carried it to term.)

And now I have a mental image of an orphanage, where the babies are given Merges. And you get to have creepy Japanese-style disjointed babies crawling on ceilings and chittiny scuttling because they're small enough to fit inside the walls, just waiting for you to let your guard down.

Nothing better than kicking things off by the team picking up an adorable little baby that goos ... then pops its jaws as a pair of mandables slides out and snaps in the air.
