Body Plating

Bone Lacing 1

Procedure:Surgery
Prereq:None
Surgery Rating:Complex
Nuyen:75000
Desc:High-impact plastic is laid along the target's bones, strengthening them and adding to the target's capacity to resist damage.
System:Adds +1 soak die.

Name:Bone Lacing 2
Procedure:Surgery
Prereq:Bone_lacing_1
Surgery Rating:Complex
Nuyen:145,000
Desc:Carbon/steel conglomerate supports are grafted onto the skeletal system to prevent breakage and increase leverage. In the case of damage to the supports or the bone, repair must be effected surgically.System:Adds +1 die to soak rolls, and +1 die to brawl damage.

Name:Bone Lacing 3
Procedure:Surgery
Prereq:Bone_lacing_2
Surgery Rating:Dangerous
Nuyen:500,000
Desc:At this level, almost the entire skeleton has been replaced with artificial material. The bones are practically unbreakable, and the skeleton can provide a tremendous amount of leverage.
System:Adds a further +1 soak and +1 die brawl damage (for a total of +3 and +2 dice, respectively).

Name:Bone Lacing 4
Procedure:Surgery
Prereq:Bone_lacing_3
Surgery Rating:Dangerous
Nuyen:700,000
Desc:At level four, the skeleton of the subject has been completely replaced by polyceramic compounds. The bones are effectively unbreakable — any force sufficient to break the bone would certainly kill the cyborg.
System:Provides a further +2 to soak (+5 total) and +1 die to brawl damage (+3 total), but the removal of much of the subject's bone marrow has side effects (-1 Stamina).

Dermal Layering 1

Procedure:Surgery
Surgery Rating:Complex
Prereq:Must -not- have dermal_platingNuyen:20,000
Desc:The subject's skin is cloned and modified to be tougher and more impact and puncture-resistant. Although more expensive than (and incompatible with) dermal plating, dermal layering is indetectable without a medical examination, and does not inhibit tactile sensation at all.
System:Each level of dermal layering provies +1 to soak.
NOTE: dermal_layering and dermal_plating are incompatible.

Prereq:Must -not- have dermal_layeringNuyen:4000
Desc:Inert plastic fibers are placed in a weave beneath the epidermis, spreading the shock of impacts and allowing the damage to be withstood more easily, much like Kevlar. The armour is generally obvious, resembling leathery patches of skin, and it decreases tactile sensation somewhat.
System:+1 die to soak, but +1 difficulty to tactile (touch) sense rolls.%r%r** NOTE: dermal_plating and dermal_layering are incompatible.
