So, once of my players asked several questions and I couldn't figure out the answers from the book.
He wants to upgrade his cranial computer to a quantum - hand waved away...
p255 Spoofing Authentication states:
...This requires an Infosec Test, modified by the quality of the system's firewall and the hacker's spoofing program...
So, I pays my money and gets my spoofing program...how do I figure out the quality of it to modify the Infosec Test?
The best I could do was this bit from the gear chapter:
In both of the situations above, it is possible to have items that are of either exceptional or inferior quality, with corresponding positive or negative modifiers. The gear may be well-crafted, state-of-the-art, cutting-edge experimental, or simply top-of-the-line, applying an additional +10 to +30. Or it may be outdated, shoddy, or in disrepair, inflicting a –10 to –30 modifier (in some cases canceling out the basic gear bonus).
But no cost impact for quality...
I could hand wave this as well, something along the lines of "each +10 costs a price level." or perhaps price things at teh middle of the price level for normal, top and bottom for +/-10 and then a whole price level for each additional +/-10.
