I'm quite new at Eclipse Phase and actually writing my very first campaign. I discovered Eclipse Phase during a long discussion about cyberpunk rpgs and I was explaining my passion for Ghost in the Shell. Actually, it's the part of the memory editing that seduced me.
I still had, after the reading of the core rulebook, a lot of questions about the psychosurgery. Actually, I'm wondering... the rulebook says, about the psychosurgery, that it's « almost always performed on a digital mind state » and « in most cases » on a copied backup. So it implies that it can be performed directly on an original ego? As it can be seen in Ghost in the Shell, for example, can the psychosurgery be performed ''simply'' by plugging directly on the target? I would like to put in my campaign a more agressive insight of the psychosurgery, have you got some advices? Maybe some ideas for implants and countermeasures? Would it be possible, for example, to have a second persona conceived as a trap for a psychosurgeon?
Thanks guys and sorry for my mistakes, I'm a french fan!
