Musing and articles from Peter Amthor. Usually of a role playing game influence but I do drift into other directions occasionally. You can also find me on twitter at @TrulyRural or on MeWe where I simply go by Peter Amthor as well. Comments and constructive criticism welcome.
Sometimes people don't want others to
know they have a metal arm or leg. They would much rather appear to
be a completely meat house person in this age replacement parts.
Which can set you apart from the regular crowd of teched out junkies
walking around. This is where Imitation of Life comes into play.
Forget RealSkinn, we go beyond their
pitiful attempts at appearing life like. When you get your cyberlimb
covered by our product nobody will be able to tell the difference.
The secret is in a biolink to the rest of your body and the
replicating what that limb should be doing on the physical level.
What can it do you may ask, well let's give you a quick rundown of
Pulse. Anybody checking for a pulse on
your arm will feel one. Completely synchronized with your current
heartbeat so it's pumping fast when you've been running and low and
slow when asleep.
Goosebumps. The hairs on your
artificial arm will stand up and small bumps will appear whenever
they do on the rest of your body.
Small cuts and scrapes. Small droplets
of blood will appear and scab over. The skin underneath will also
slowly heal over time.
Blushing and skin tone. Of course your
skin will match up with the rest of you all the way down to blemishes
and marks. Even slightly blushing when necessary.
So if you're wanting to stop looking
like a chrome junkie and ready to rejoin the ranks of the normal
humans then we have the product you are looking for. Imitation of
Life, enabling you to continue on with a normal one.
ID Code: ImOL
Cost: 500eb for an arm and 750eb for a
System. Same as Realskinn but the check
to detect the cyberlimb is now at NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE difficulty on a
visual inspection. Also lowers the HC for the limb by 1D6. Uses up an
extra option space on the limb.
Sponsorship: Imitation of Life is not
offering sponsorships at this time since the entire point of the line
is so other are not aware of the cyberlimb. However if someone with a
celebrity or near celebrity reputation were wishing to switch over to
their covering they will be more than happy to talk with them. They
have done “Back to normal” style commercials where they focus on
those who have decided to ditch the chrome look in favor of the new
real appearance. In this case they will not only pay for the
coverings but also several hundred eb for about a couple hours of
interview videos before and after installation.
