Re-reading good ol "Schismatrix" as I think it's probably one of the better starters to get me into the zone with EP. There's a funny scene toward the beginning where the main character freaks out over a cigarette being lit in a habitat... but when you think about it Pyrophobia is probably a survival trait in a generation literally lost in space. Would the same apply for EP? I can see a "hidden defect" that kicks in when the character, who was raised in a habitat, descends to Venus or Mars and this guy lits up... if nothing else could be a good roleplaying moment.
