I guess this is mostly for Morrus, but I was wondering if the supplement has shipped yet? I just ordered it and Strontium Dog. (Edit: I just realized that what I thought was people receiving their books was Morrus showing a printer's proof.) If not, is there an ETA?
It's equipment quality that counts with Max Dice Pool, not equipment bonuses. (Though that could be made clearer in the rules.) So, the +1d6 to Strength is above and beyond the MDP.
That said, I don't know if cyberware counts as equipment with equipment quality.
