Tenebra! That's perfect.
Do you know how you want us to build yet?
I'm thinking 150 point Heroic with 40 points of complications... Somewhere in between Standard humans and Heroic ones. However, for Matrix-born characters, a lot
of your character points should be spent on the ability to jack in and on powering up your Residual Self-Image. Your real-world selves are subject to a characteristic maxima; you're normal humans. Highly skilled humans, perhaps, but still.. just humans.
Mundane items are free, but you'll need to pay for any specialized real-life gear/weapons. In the Matrix, you gotta pay for everything.
Something like this:
Extra-Dimensional Movement (Single Dimension), Reduced Endurance (0 END; +1/2) (30 Active Points); Limited Power loses about half of its effectiveness (Only to hardline locations, physical body remains behind, physical body is vulnerable to damage taken in the Matrix; -1), OIF (-1/2), Extra Time (Full Phase, Only to Activate, -1/4)
Multiform (250 Character Points in the most expensive form), Inherent (+1/4) (62 Active Points); Limited Power loses about half of its effectiveness (Only in the Matrix, requires a broadcast chair, requires an operator; -1), Extra Time (Full Phase, Only to Activate, -1/4)
If anyone wants a stronger (or weaker) RSI, just let me know and I can adjust the values for you.
Anyone with character-building experience, please note that as Residual Self-Image has [Only in the Matrix], there'll be no double-dipping and using that same limitation on all your RSI abilities.
Now, obviously freeborns won't have either of these, so they'll have an extra 40 points to spend on equipment and extra skills.
Also, note that I'm far more experienced with Superheroic campaigns than Heroic ones, so I may have to tweak point totals and stuff for the sake of balance. I'll have to play it by ear.
