Talk:Shadowrun: Hong Kong Cyberware
According to in-game documentation, the player cannot go below 1 essence through the installation of Cyberware. If this is true, it should probably be added to the article. -Yosharian
6 Essence?[edit source]
"All characters start with 6 Essence. Installing cyberware reduces a character's Essence permanently. The player cannot go below 1 essence through the installation of Cyberware."
In my first game of SR: Hong Kong I just got the first two cyberwares installed in my Troll and his essence did sink from 7 to 6 (the Shiawase Magnet arm uses 1, the tailored skin pheromones 0 Essence). So - is that a bug in my game or do characters start with 7 Essence and not with 6?
