The biomorph-pod question
If I purchase a biomorph with the cyberbrain and puppet sock implants in gametime it is considered a pod? Why only four kinds of pods? Could not be considered any (...non natural, ha!) biomorph with those implants considered a pod? I understand that during character creation you chose your primary or original morph, but what about afterwards? What do you think?

If I purchase a biomorph

If I purchase a biomorph with the cyberbrain and puppet sock implants in gametime it is considered a pod? No, it is not. Pods, if your read their description, are very distinct from other biomorphs. Rather than being a "normal" biomorph with extra hardware, they are vat-grown and usually assembled from multiple sources. Unless you're a stitched-together meatsack with an underdeveloped brain, you're probably not a pod.

That's an interesting way of putting it. Thank you.

Re: The biomorph-pod question
One of the ideas I was toying with for an encounter was a synth pod that had a cyberbrain, so it was rather intelligent and capable of advanced mental activity equal to or greater than the player morphs, but the pod acted like all the others masking its intentions. How viable do you guys think this would be??

Do remember that AGI are already fully capable of advanced mental activity equivalent to the capabilities of humans. It's likely that your characters, already immersed in the setting, would already know that there are artificial intelligences capable of being their mental equals. They may not accept it (many bioconservatives don't, considering organic intelligences to be far superior), but it is the standard for the setting.
