Intelligence is one of the attributes.

Overview[edit | edit source]

An essential attribute for deckers and riggers, but can also be useful for a healer due to Biotech. Intelligence improves Expert Systems Programs (ESP) and Drones accuracy, reduces chance to be hit in the Matrix (for decker and programs) and unlocks access to skills related to these three professions.

It can also be used in conversation or as a skill check occasionally, but doesn't result in any significant rewards such as with Strength, Quickness and Charisma.

Campaign Usefulness[edit | edit source]

  • The Dead Man's Switch
    • There are no checks requiring the attribute and resulting skills to be any higher than six. In fact there are only two uses of the attribute, one to pick a lock and the other to sucker punch someone.
    • Decking is used heavily to gain access to additional content, much more than Drone Control or biotech.
