comment What's the most armor I can give a vehicle at character creation?
I had the obvious answer of "yeah, you can, duh", until I realized about the "no gear over Rating 6" rule, which I never considered as applying to vehicle armor. Now I have a serious doubt. So good question, will be interested to see an answer on whether the "Max Rating 6" applies to Vehicle armor or not.

comment Why can't a bonded item be in the head slot?
This is perfect. I want a bonded belt, and kinkiness will ensue. Or boots. (More seriously, bracers and gloves seem to fit the bill too)

comment When confronted with a situation with no seeming honorable resolution, what does a samurai do in Rokugan?
Ok, I see. But yeah, they are not asking for me to solve their moral issue, nor do I want to do it. They are asking for info on what a character in that setting would think - in another game they would probably already have killed them and looted the guns - and I have to agree that I am not sure either. So yeah, not asking what they should do, what is the correct decision, but what the code says about this kind of situation.

comment When confronted with a situation with no seeming honorable resolution, what does a samurai do in Rokugan?
The magistrate part seems appropriate, though I personally dislike having my PCs just relying on someone else. Unfortunately I can't give information about the Imperial's motivations, as my players are reading this. Also, the Imperial is very close from the Empress (her brother) and as such, would revealing publicly his behavior affect her reputation?

comment What are the pros and cons of wearing a helmet?
Not detailed enough to be a full answer, but in my experience, the pros of wearing a helmet (besides armor boost) is that you are less easy to identify. Get caught on camera, and they don't have your face. That can save your life a lot more than one point of Armor. As for the cons, yeah, if you're the only one in a pub with a helmet, you are easier to track. So the usual solution is to not carry a helmet in everyday situation, but have one in your backpack for risky situations

comment Shadowrun history across the editions
I think that depending of the amount of detail you are looking for, the answer can vary from 3 lines to several pages. So, how much detail do you want? Could you put a succinct list of points to take into account?

comment How complex are sprite tasks usually allowed to be?
Additionally, Street Magic has a whole section on Spirits and tasks, that applies quite well to Sprites and tasks

comment How complex are sprite tasks usually allowed to be?
The FAQ suggests 140 characters commands for drones, and this works well for Sprites (and Spirits) too.

@Cobalt Biofeedback IS a Complex Form, but one that you receive automatically at character creation

comment How do mystic adepts gain power points in Shadowrun 5?
@Joe I will update anyway as far as I find a definite answer to "Can they spend extra karma for magic points for which they did not buy power points during character creation?", which is quite important in my opinion

comment Can Threading or Sprites be a reliable substitute for known Complex Forms?
@Cobalt Being inconscious is still a lot worse than just being disconnected. Basically, any Cybercombat is at least as dangerous as fighting Blackout IC. Get rid of Attack and Blackout, you won't need them, and take Stealth and Command instead (VERY useful). And Response and Firewall are not CF, not sure if that's what you meant or not.
