Augmentations alter the human base condition in terms of physical and mental feats, the alterations can either be minor such as neural networks which remain common to mostly everyone to extensive such as full body prosthesis, The dangers implied with extensive augmentations depend solely on the nature of the augmentation and the means in which is is implanted into a playing character, biotechnology for instance does not have too many invasive surgeries to implant but comes with other genetic risks. In the end the augmented human is a standard part of popular culture today and is used in broad areas such as media to military. Augmentations take time and resources to maintain and install and only players with license may do so, although a heavy influence of illegal or stolen augmentations flood the black market, although these second rate jobs come with a higher rejection rate during surgery.

Base augmentations or beginner grade augmentations cover the entire range of augmentations a player may begin roleplay with from flashlight eyes to enhanced hearing etc. These beginning augmentations represent the lowest level of implants and do not effect the character stats whatsoever. That being said players may imagine their own inherent augmentations to begin with which may only affect roleplay in its broadest implication. Players need to take care not to over embellish a base augmentation to punch through walls, leap to the top of buildings or see peoples hidden weapons. This falls in the range of god modding which is why these rp system exists. The moment a player opts to purchase or change their statistic due to an augmentation they must pay for it and adhere to the system provided. 

Diseases and augmentation rejection syndrome are more common for lower grade implants and unlicensed doctors however there is always a risk when implanting augmentations into a player. If a player who is installing an implant critical fails then a player may roll his endurance to counter the fail if that also fails then the player incurs 1 of the provided diseases associated with augmentations. The player rolls a 1D6 and applies the disease to their statistics, a player who suffers a disease must seek medical help to neutralize the detrimental effect on their statistics, this is only discovered after the operation is completed and takes a week to recover from. The difficulty modifier to heal such diseases are a 30 and players who are trying to heal the player may need help from additional players to stack their modifier, they may try once a day and the week recovery only happens upon a successful roll, a critical success nets half a week recover and a critical fail means that another healing attempt may not be tried for another week.

1 Augmentation Rejection Syndrome (-10% agility, -10% Endurance)
2 Accelerated Cellular Degeneration (-10% Strength, -10% Intelligence)
3 Cyberbrain Sclerosis (-10% Perception, -10% Charisma)
4 Circulatory System Decrepitude (-10% Charisma, -10 health)
5 Codon Syndrome (-5 move, -10 aim)
6 Descolada (-10 defense, -10 health)

The availability means how easy to difficult it is to obtain such an augmentation. Low is easily found and can be obtained at most stores located around the city. Medium are a little more rare and are obtained in only specific locations. High are rare and can only be obtained through private channels or ordered off world. Illegal augmentations may only be obtained off the black market. The availability also represents how long it takes to obtain the augmentations, while low may take several days medium and high may takes weeks to months to coordinate or order. There is a general rule of thumb here the harder it is to find an augmentation the longer it takes to track it down, order it and install it. Use your best judgement in this regard. Also concerning all military grade augmentations, equipment or androids, you will need a high faction relation of 25% in order to approach them for purchasing all done in character.

Cybernetics require chassis or grafts while biotech required genetic modifications which act as the foundation for future augmentations. Only six augmentations may be used at any time, in order to change out your augmentations you must undergo surgery and take the appropriate time for the changes to take effect.
