Additional Technologies

Forum member Iztok did some research for starting games with additional technologies in A Murder of Crows and came up with the following:

If the tech is random and the player fails to roll for it, he gets next tech on the list. The first 15 "levels" on the list seem to be in a fixed order. Randomness starts after "level" 15 (i.e. Addict Morrigi for the Morrigi or Cybernetic interface for other races), but some techs seem to appear more often than others.
