So I have my copy of Rifts Ultimate edition. I want to play a headhunter partial conversion cyborg. Starting on page 75 I note the parameters of remaining only a partial conversion cyborg. Now I want that bionic arm. I want it to have a 22 physical strength and physical prowess. The book says the character needs bionic bones to support such high stats. How do I go about purchasing those bionic bones, and do they take up any slots as far as the maximum number of implants is concerned?

Also, I understand the strength being limited to 22 since it is augmented, but a limitation of 22 on the physical prowess seems a little low as it is possible for a normal human to have even higher with good rolls and bonuses. Does that 22 limit actually apply to the physical prowess as well?

Also, I am assuming once the character can afford 2 legs with 22 physical prowess that he is able to enjoy that 22 physical prowess for dodging?

Bionic Bones can be found in the Bionics Source Book. As far as slots go, yes I would count them (though I might be generous and just treat it as "one" and not individually for each bone).

While a human might have a higher PP, the augmented limb likely still requires some degree of anchoring I would think, which might limit what you can do with an augmented limb versus a natrual limb.

Actually nothing states that the PP bonus works that way. I'd probably have it apply situationally, if your dodge/parry/strike doesn't use the augmented limb, you use the natural PP instead.

bionics can usually be augmented up with straight credits by a cyber doc/operator. Visit Tony Stank in the Firetown 'Burb or something with a pocket full of universal credit I guess?
