Well technomancer is an archetype so you can pretty much just use those stats if you want. It is still mostly a freeform game but I wanted those that enjoy the rules to play by them on a run if they want. There are options for doing runs without all of the rules too for those, like me, that prefer to concentrate on the between run stuff more.
A big complaint last time was that players couldn't play what they wanted to play with the limited rules so I wanted people to have the option of full character creation.
It is still a sandbox so it is still very player driven.
I have Baby as an NPC/Contact so yes she will be around, a little older and a little wiser, but still a little ganger at heart.
