System Toughness

System Toughness represents the strength of the system to withstand damage. If cybered character takes a wound or more, his cyber system also may take damage. The character compare the damage taken – i.e the damage after the characters physical Toughness – to the the System Toughness. For every 4 points beyond the System Toughness, the Cyberware suffers a Malfunction.

System Toughness is based on Manufacturer and can be increased via some integrity add ons.


There are 5 primary manufacturers of Cybernetics. Gamemasters can assume that each of these corporations have similar products. Brodie has their own version of NetWorld’s SuperSight, NetWorld has a Hunter module, etc. For cost purposes, assuming NetWorld as the base, Brodie will be 30% more expensive than NetWorld and Furtherman will only be 15% more expensive. Testron and McGinley are about 10% cheaper than Networld. In general, cybernetic lines are not cross-compatible. Some underground hack shops have been able to get some lines to work with others, but it’s risky.
