Default A Worthy Complaint

So, for those of us who have never played CP2020 before…

We don't know how encumbrance works in the system. We don't know where the thresholds are, or the penalties associated with exceeding them. We don't have access to any equipment lists beyond what is in the basic rules, which makes it kind of tough to work up an equipment list. Could someone with more knowledge of the system maybe please throw us n00bs a fricking bone here?

It pisses me off that I'm turning into That Guy in this campaign, but I feel compelled to point out that my character was poisoned while I wasn't looking, when I didn't consent to experimental treatment either in character or OOC. I realize that (the poisoning) wasn't the intent on Aaron's part, but that's the net result. No warnings from the doctor that there might be side effects from the treatment, no saving throw, nothing, it just happened. And there doesn't seem to be anything I or anyone else can do about it other than to just wait out the effects.

When other people have incurred penalties, at least that happened as a result of a failed roll. And when people got shot out of the simulation, they were still able to act in the next layer up of reality. The suggestion for Anders has basically been to sleep it off. If there's a hidden upside to Anders' brain-wrenching, it has completely eluded me. From my point of view, I'm being completely screwed over for no story reason whatsoever, and it's frustrating to the point of the being infuriating. This thread, for me, hasn't just been not fun, but an active source of anti-fun that is destroying fun in other parts of my life. Please fix it?

All right!

I moved this post to a separate thread so I can respond at length without breaking the gaming thread.

So far, nothing you have been through has impacted your roll in gaming terms.

You were "accidentally" and temporarily poisoned by your medic.

This will pass, and you will see it will have little to no impact on game play.

I allowed it in an effort to demonstrate that in game choices have in game consequences.

As for encumbrance and other load-out options, I urge you to consult your fellow players and the PDFs that I have made available to you all through the links I posted.

If you wish, you can describe your chosen gear using real-world terms and I will translate those into game numbers. Be reasonable in your selections and I will be reasonable in my rulings.

Does that sound fair?

I'm sorry that I cannot be more help. Things at work will improve by the end of the month (I hope) but I'm working 16 hour days with little computer access.

Blame ISIL. Those goat fuckers!

In the meantime, don't worry about your character's illness. He can't jack in for a bit. So far, it hasn't been a problem. Load up and play on!
