Last session, when I was bored and looking to burn some hard earned money for my character, I browsed through our books and found a nice little piece that when implanted would give +3 dice on all knowledge skill checks. At the time I considered it cheap and useful and something to install when the time comes.

Now that time has come and I cannot remember the name. Or book it came from. Or anything really. Just that it was relatively cheap and gave +3 dice for knowledge checks (not a general bonus to LOG or INT though). It may have been cyberware, it may have been bioware (more likely) or maybe even nano or gene stuff.

I browsed every book I could find and googled, but with nothing to search for, it's really just going through the lists one by one. And obviously I suck at that, because I found nothing.

So does anybody know what I'm talking about and can give me a hint where to find it? I have both English and German books for page references, but a name would be enough to be able to actually do a proper search.

It could have been the Mnemonic Enhancer (rating * 9,000 nuyen) from the core rulebook (page 460):

Mnemonic enhancer: This highly concentrated growth of grey matter gets attached to the brain’s memory centers, improving both short- and long-term memory. Add the enhancer’s Rating as a dice pool bonus to your Knowledge, Language, and memory-related tests as well as to your Mental limit.

Checking the Chrome and Flesh source book, the closest things are the Knowledge Hardwire (page 80), which increases a single skill defined by the 'ware, Math SPU (same page), which increases your Mathematics skill, and Knowledge Infusion (page 118), which grants a single rank on a knowledge skill you don't possess.

  • \$\begingroup\$ Ah, I was already searching through my 4ed books, as the mnemonic enhancer doesn't specifically say "+3 to knowledge skills" but "rating to knowledge skills". \$\endgroup\$
