Adept Archetype

This archetype is not the hardest to play, but it is harder than street samurai.
1. Straightforwards playstyle.
2. High level of possible power.
3. Unique adept abilities and flexibility with an emphasis on support, defense, and melee.

1. Weaker than all other archetypes early on.
2. Cyberware and Bioware decrease your magic, so obtaining such should only occur after careful consideration.

All in all this archetype allows you to mess with many different playstyles and the adept abilities give you a flexibility that other archetypes lack and pairs quite well with 'ware.

The help file for adept reads:

Adepts are true warriors of an age past, devoted to perfecting their physical
strengths and capabilities.  Berserkers, ninjas and all other elite forms of
mortal warriors are adepts.  An adept has a magic rating, but rather than
casting spells, uses their magic to "purchase" skills and abilities that come
from a refining of the human body.  Adepts are also much more athletic and
agile than most other warriors, thus making just as good assassins as
samurais without the aid of cyberware.
