Bollixed Cyborg HoE

A character thats a Cyborg with vet o' the wasted west got Bollixed. Rolling every few second would become very annoying for the player. what would be the best corse of action?

Wow...

1. Say that, for some reason, it doesn't affect his cyberware (but does affect everything else).

2. Make him roll once per day.

3. Say that this particular hindrance is out of line with the benefits gained and/or does too much damage to the character concept, and let him redraw.

Once per day sounds good. "When dramatically appropriate" sounds better.

Personally I'd play the gremlin like a Harrowed's manitou, only difference is the goal is to cause mayhem and panic, rather than more subtle fear. The waster never knows if the Gremlin decides it's play time and will cause his IFF system to screw up or not!

Another option entirely is to use your discretion as Marshall, and say that it does not fit. Then, you redraw and use a different result. Or pick the result that you think fits best/you think would be the most fun; remember, almost every table to draw/roll on for such effects has such a disclaimer giving you the ability to match problem to character.

Yeah. Sticking a person's character with a randomly-drawn hindrance at character creation that completely screws their concept just isn't cool.

I wish said disclaimer were a little more strongly emphasized.

I'd say redraw as well.
