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 want to make a Technomancer or a Weapons expert and was wondering what type of charecters are the most numerous on this site?

What do you mean by "weapons specialist"? There are several sammys, both cybered and awakened, though there seem to be more of the latter than the former. Several of them use skills extensively enough to qualify as weapons specialists by the definition given in the core-book. I don't think I've seen one that relied solely on skills yet though, but I may have overlooked someone.

There are several technomancers, and a few straight up hackers.

The real question is, who do you want to play? The build of the character's really only for mechanical purposes. If you have a character in mind, run with it. Don't worry about who else is out there... if you've got someone walking around on your lobes, you gotta let them out to play. Just building a "weapons specialist" or a "technomancer" won't make for a good character... you've got to have a real idea of who it is you want to be.

Just pitch us a char, and we'll help you make them what you want.

Thus far his character is looking like this. It isn't anywhere near done yet, he still has plenty of cash, and needs a few more things. thus far he is looking at 5 bp remaining, with an extra ¥15,000 waiting to be used.

very cool phantom. I applaud your latest monster.

one thing. I'm pretty sure the max system upgrade we can get is Rating 5 due to Availability. While we could spend those last 5 BP to get a second Restricted Gear Quality... I think we could use those points more wisely. Just wish I had remembered Move By Wire when I made Sliver... that would have been sick bad.

I don't see any firearms skill there, even though he's carrying a gun. Ommission, or is it strictly a last resort weapon?

Ah. I see.

Well, how about giving him some magic resistance? Awakened are about the only ones that can frag with a seriously chromed sammy. The Magic Resistance Quality costs 5 bp per rating and adds 1 die to spell resistance tests. Of course, this works against him if he ever needs be healed by a mage on his team.

well, we only have 5 bp left, and i want to mess with a few things, besides he has so many ways around combat, that tangoing with a mage should be the last thing on his mind.

Alright. Well, he's got rigger abilities, but only a vehicle. If we want him to be an all-rounder, a drone or two would be useful. Or, if he's going to be a wheel man, we can sink a few points into pilot watercraft or pilot aircraft.

Or he can just get the Skill Softs for them as needed.

If we've got the NY6,000 can we grab him the Attack Prog? BlackHammer is great, but it's worthless against an agent, pilot, firewall, etc.

i was considering programs as well, attack would be useful. This character is designed to be a smuggler, not a rigger. The only drone i can think of adding would be an aerial surveilance drone, just in case the drek hits the fan... again. Otherwise, i'm considering some other extras, and further upgrading the car, it has plenty of slots (it comes with 14 Shocked ). it is almost done for the most part. right now it is just buttoning up, filling in a few missing blanks, and making sure this guy can handle most situations. Right now he looks like a jack of all trades character, which isn't that bad considering the skill levels he has. He won't be a master of many trades, but he can come pretty darn close.

Thanks for the compliment, although most of it would have to go to Wreck and Pven for the ideas, the looking up of stuff, and the decision not to go with a technomancer.

Nah man, I had almost nothing to do with this one. Just a bit of input. (mostly just the MBW) Pven's choice to skip the technomancer helped make it all happen.
