Is there any official rules for slicing? Any useful house rules that you've developed?

I know I've seen something...maybe in Craken's Rebel Field Guide?

I picked this up YEARS ago off the the SWRPGNetwork. I haven't looked at it in over a decade, so decide for yourself what you think it's worth.

Very good resource. It brings a lot of the info about computer programming /repair into one place. I think the difficulty numbers are a little high for some things. Bear in mind that 4D is professional skill level. That's a roll of 12-16.

I like his idea that Slicing is the offensive specialization and Systems Administration is the defensive specialization. I would make a third specialization of coding/programming. Slicing gets you in. SysAdm keeps you out. Coding is writing the programs you want to affect the computer system. Your call as a GM.

Of course those are software specializations. There should be at least one hardware specialization. Maybe Computer Repair.

Lastly, I have always liked the skill bonuses a computer can give you.

Using a Spike would also be a good specialization.
