Shadowrun Wiki

Cyberware is a catch-all term referring to artificial components that are installed into one's body to replace or enhance existing parts – to provide additional functionality, improve resilience, or generally make runners more skilled at what they do. Installing cyberware decreases Essence; Spellcasting, Chi Casting and Conjuring perform worse with less essence. Spirit Summoning, Totems and Spirit Control are not impacted by less essence.

Please note the Essence Hole rules.
