  • In a Twenty Minutes Into The Future or Cyberpunk campaign, some jurisdictions will permit the creation of such hybrids, while others forbid it. Problems (=possible adventures) will arise when such jurisdictions shift suddenly, or when the hybrids need to be transported through the "wrong" territory.
    • It gets even more complicated if such beings are allowed to reach maturity - especially if they have human or near-human intelligence. Figuring out their rights will be a major political headache.
    • When sexy cat-girls are outlawed, then only outlaws will have sexy cat-girls. Just sayin' is all.

  • <insert joke about those attempting to procure such hybrids without biotechnology>
  • What constitutes a hybrid? Would, say, using chunks of transspecies DNA to patch out defects in a genome count? What about wholly synthetic DNA patches?
