Nerve Augmentation Genetic Retrovirus

Tech Level: 6

EDF Modifier: -/-

Description: This retrovirus makes changes to the recipient’s DNA, building a far more sensitive nervous system, including various sections of the brain dealing with input and output of sensory signals and interpretations of those signals. This leads to increased perception, both of information gained by the five senses and of internal information stored and sorted by the brain.

Benefit: A nerve augmentation retrovirus gives the recipient a +1 to +5 inherent bonus to his Wisdom score. He takes a –2 penalty to his Intelligence score because the increase in ability to sort and consider one piece of data reduces his ability to gather and file new information.

A character cannot have more than one genetic retrovirus in effect at a time. A genetic retrovirus cannot be removed through surgery; it must be removed with targeted toxins or diseases (see Wetware Equipment, page 73). Further, genetic retroviruses cannot have any gadget components or be added to other cybernetic devices that have gadgets.
