From publisher blurb:
Tattoos and subdermal cyberarmor - two expressions of the same drive and desire: change the body, make it to fit the flesh match the desire. To become better, more attractive, more socially adept, a better activist, a better example of what it means to live the heroic life. Body modification, both of the purely decorative and tactical varieties, is a major theme of Otherverse America. A hundred years from now, un-marred flesh is an aberration; by 2107 most adult Americans have at least a few designs etched into their skin.
For inked gamers, here’s a compilation of material relating to tattoos and body-mods. In addition to a bit of world info and character building advice, we’ll take a look at some of the feats and Object Philosophies unique to the setting.
