Who said running the shadows was easy? Dodging bullets, swords, spirits, and spells just to name a few. Elves, Dwarves, Trolls, even the occasional Dragon can make any Shadowrun go bad.

So I remembered why the hell I dont go there much..just looking at 9/10 of the sheets there makes me want to put a gun to my head as I see how depraved most players there are...now dont get me wrong I can understand someone having trouble making characters and come up with weird thing..Ghostmaker being one of me Razz... But some of those..abominations..from people that that think there so awesome to have 3 1s in there physical stats and not rolaplying it as such cause it gives em a "badass" casting pool of 18..rather then 15 they wouldv gotten for just soft capping it and have all there physical at 3 instead..I mean seriously im getting headaches just read that stuff..like the title says its just a rant..needed to get that out... I got no freakin idea what kind of GM they got but GEEZ..its roleplay not roll-play for christ sake

There's definitely some min-maxing going on there. I don't ever recall seeing a caster with all 1's for physical stats though I could be wrong. than again you may have been giving a very extreem case of min-maxing.

I think a lot of the time it comes down to players wanting to play something that they "think" is badass like you said. Skimp from one area to pump up another and then don't rp it. Yeah it stinks. But for the few times that they play the munchkin they enjoy it and maybe see where the toon is lacking. Yeah having that casting pool at 18 and the drain pool at 15 is great but when a pixie takes you out with a sneeze something is lacking.

Then there's the longevity of a game. We all know that games come and go. Some come and go rather quick and some don't even get started.

But in the end you are right it is role-play not roll-play. Both can be fun but the role-play is more rewarding.
