Moves:

Smart Arms
Your arms literally have minds of their own. When you go into battle roll+Intuition. On a 10, hold 3. On a 7-9, hold 2. During battle, you may spend your hold, 1 for 1, to have your extra arms:

  • attack all on their own with whatever weapon they’re holding (GM determines against whom)
  • wave about distractingly, +1 armor for one damage move
  • follow-through on your own move as if they’d rolled a 10+, with you as the “ally” in question

Impossible Reflexes
The way you move unencumbered counts as armor. If you’re naked or nearly naked, 2-armor; if you’re wearing non-armor fashion, 1-armor. If you’re wearing armor, use it instead.

Not to be Fucked With:
In battle, you count as a small gang with damage and armor appropriate to your equipment and moves.

Packing All Kinds of Heat:
When you go into battle, choose one of the following:
• You’ve loaded incendiary ammunition. Add +burn to your ranged weapon attacks.
• You’ve loaded armor-piercing ammunition. Add +ap-1 to your ranged weapon attacks.
• You’ve loaded plastic ammunition. Add +shock to your ranged weapon attacks.
• You’ve loaded tracking ammunition. Add +bug to your ranged weapon attacks

In the Thick of Things:
At the beginning of the session, roll+Intuition. On a 10+, hold 2. On a 7-9, hold 1. At any time, either you or the GM can spend your hold to have you show up in any scene, with the proper tools and knowledge. On a miss, the GM holds 1, and can spend it to have you already be there, but somehow pinned, caught or trapped.

Mercenaries
You have a mercenary force who obeys you only as long as you can pay. When you try to impose your will on your gang, roll+Resources. On a 10+, choose 3. On a 7-9, choose 2. On a miss, choose 1 anyway:

  • They do what you want.
  • They don’t overcharge you, and you don’t lose 1-Resources permanently.
  • Their Vulnerability doesn’t activate, or you don’t have to hurt one of them.

Fitness:
Gain 2 new +scuffed boxes on your damage track.

Echoes of Self
When you synch with your forks regardless of distance roll+Willpower. On a hit, you are them, briefly. Know what they know and they know what you know. On a 7-9 it’s disorienting and you’re +glitched forward. On a miss you just get the bad stuff. Roll the trauma move

I’ve purchased an Infomorph backup for just prior to the meeting with our employer.
