I don't see any Chipware in the cyberware section is this deliberate or an omission? I thought I read a while back that all the original Torg cyberware would make an appearance in the new version core book? In the original Cyberpapacy rules each auditory location could house up to 3 different enhancements - is this no-longer the case? If so only 2 eye enhancements and 2 ear enhancements would be possible? Finally, looking at the new Spellcraft perks there doesn't seem to be any new ones that grant new spell groupings, if we now lose the 2 spells per perk spent benefit that was in place before the sourcebook was released it is going to be very hard to build up a variety of spells.

Was cut for space. This is one of those cases where layout was a bitch...namely everything has to be done in two page spreads. And we just didn't' have two pages to cut anywhere else. It'll be in one of the Secrets of ... PDFs though.

As for more spells. It's in the Familiar Perk.

Thanks for the clarification if its in the secrets of... pdf then that's great I really liked the variety of mission builds the Chipware gave ( "I know Kung -Fu!!). I just read the Familiar perk and spotted the two spells entry - does that mean that you can have multiple familiars by taking the perk more than once?

Page 3 - Player section - is the background image temporary?
This is for the Cyberpapacy but the background image is dominated by Aylse and Tharkold with part of the Cyberpapacy clipped. Struck me as odd. Is the page a cut and paste from Aysle (suggested by the labeling of the legend)

You can't take it more than once.

Yes. The maps weren't quite ready yet.

Should the Champion of God perk be either cosm restricted (*) or have a Tech axiom? So far all of the "power armor" abilities from other cosms have had one or the other, making them a contradiction in most other places. But as written the Breastplate of Righteousness and its accouterments (belt, sword, etc.) are non-contradictory in all cosms.

I believe the general rule is that Perks can't be taken more than once unless it explicitly says so.

Regarding the Cyberware sensory enhancements, is it just one per replaced organ or up to 3 as it was in the original Torg? My character currently has two visual enhancements, it that the maximum ( without having socketed ones that could be switched out)?
