Effect: Mechanically, this surgery is similar to the “Spontaneous Metamorphosis” surgery, but instead of letting your character switch between physical forms, after activating the right mental triggers you can switch between personalities. As per Spontaneous Metamorphosis, create a second character sheet. Keep the same physical traits, but your character’s mental abilities, Techniques, and many Proficiencies can be changed. Some traits (Body: Perception, for instance) are as much mental as corporeal, the Guide has the final word here.
Generally, a character’s personalities are aware of each other and share a common pool of memories. Bicameration can be used to create sleeper agents with buried personalities activated by some predetermined signal or trigger, though Mindcraft charges a premium for the “No Questions Asked” version of the surgery.
Switching between personalities takes a minute, this cannot be reduced through experience. The “No Questions Asked” version is a bit more brutal and the transition takes only 30 seconds. Resisting a forced personality change is a Resolve save with a difficulty of 2. Otherwise, changing between personalities requires a Resolve save with a difficulty of 1+ the number of times you’ve moved between personalities today.
