193, Synthetic Augmentations: I'd expect a cost difference in chop-shop vs premium clinic. There's the die roll advantage for exclusive premises, but I don't see any reason to not go there if the price is the same.

193, Synthetic Augmentations: "As anti-Nexus prejudices fester, many humans covet their organic bodies like some VIP pass to a better life." I would expect some mention here of the fact that the vast majority of people on Earth are considered Specials — unfit, in most cases physically, for...

192: Synthetic Support: "Older generations frown upon augs, but younger Specials don’t possess the same aversion to synthetics as those who endured the Blackout and Human Supremacy Riots."
