The moment you make it sexual, or make other people uncomfortable. Basically don't be creepy when you describe your character.

It's annoying there's such a stigma against, it because you can do much awesome stuff with it before that point.

Sure.
If you can put Elf and Troll together and get a Mind Flayer with Gills and Googly Eyes, then i'm fairly sure you can put two Elves together and get a human.

It is.
It's fun too.
Even the less functional stuff is great.
"Nasty Vibe" and a highly visible "Freaks" deformation is a great way to get a +5 to intimidation tests.

SURGE, Chummer, is when your metagenes are fucked all the way up, and you express as something other than the standard Metatypes (and metavariants).

Some follow a theme, like catgirls, obsidimen, and plant people (those chumps with the hair like grass and bark skin). Some are a complete fucking mess, like a troll with Satyr legs and a beak.

And then you get lucky bastards like me.
Great for intimidating, even better for attracting the girls.

Mechaically, you take a SURGE quality which lets you take a number of positive metagentic qualities, and a number of negative metagentic qualities.
Due to the possibility for rampant abuse, most of the time you'll want to work with your GM on it, such as creating a Cat-Person or a Rock-Man, or turning your Troll into Doomsday (Enhanced Dermal Deposits and Bone Spikes should do it), or creating an Illithid/Mind-Flayer.

Fluff-wise?
You get Changelings when your Metagenes are all fucked up. You usually need a high ambient mana level to stimulate the change, which can be provided by stuff like Mana Storms, as well as (most prominently) the return of Haley's Comet.

>They don't seem to blend well. They either express, or they don't.
There is a third option, and that is your metagenes fuck up and break.
That's when you get SURGE, Changelings and face tentacles.

It's mostly considered either a tool for munchkins or fetishists.

Of course, all those problems are mitigated greatly with the dormant metagenetics quality.

Especially if you have an agreement that he can choose both positive and negative qualities, in exchange for the higher SURGE level one higher than what you rolled.

I have no regrets.

That is perhaps the most crude and derogatory description of my kind's reproduction I've ever heard.

We most certainly do not "fuck around" with the body. We treat it as our own.

Never played Shadowrun once in my life, but I get the gist of the setting. Sort of cyberpunk-y? Like, robots and gangs and hackers? I'll give it a try.

Also, a dapper Illithid working on his tumour.
