comment How does a host realize somebody has gained a mark by hacking?
1) As far as I understand, all of the mentioned uses of Matrix Perception are not opposed. A single hit is enough to recognize if the persona was invited into the host. 2) All icons in a host are visible to a persona in the host. 3) It's to be expected that most personas used for security in a host roll at least 4-6 dice for Matrix Perception almost alway getting at least one hit. 4) A hacker cannot predict what icon the security of the host would check next. --> If 1,2,3 and 4 are true, being discovered is purely the GM's decision, there is no way for a player to guess the chance. Am I right?

comment Immobilized creature doesn't want to pay; can he charge instead?
I also would adapt the rules for delay. Otherwise a lot of powers could be negated by simply readying an action. Immobilized at least forces to use a charge but think of conditions like weakened until end of your next turn. Move in position, ready an attack to trigger when the next creature acts and you lose exactly nothing. Just seems not right to me.

comment Why use a pistol instead of a rifle?
Regarding almost unharmed: You're right, I was thinking of armor - if one carries enough armor to survive 4-6d6 damage on a regular basis he/she probably could ignore 2d. I'm adding that bit right now.

comment Item grants shift after charge: is shift part of charge action?
That would be the reasoning that I'd use, too. But I'd feel better about it if there was a rule along the lines: "If an action enables you to perform something in addition to the actions normal function, it is considered part of the initial action."
