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.

PostSubject: Some Assembly Required   Thu Sep 29, 2011 9:06 am

Life was good. You had a job, a real job for one of the megas, maybe even a family. You were safe in the archology. The biggest thing you had to worry about was what to eat for dinner each night. Life was good.

Unfortunately when...who or whatever... was designing your life they obviously subcontracted it out to some third world nation and was paying the workings 1 nuyen a day. It looks like warranty just ran out too.

You wake up and you don't know where the heck you are. Its dark, damp and things don't seem quite right.


What the Frag! This type of stuff doesn't happen to people like us. We payed our dues, we went to school and get the good education so that we would be safe in the archology. This happens to street trash, not citizens....

Now what?


Ok I have been toying around with this idea for a while and throught that I would throw it out there. This will be more of an exercise in ROLE playing than anything else. All of the players will be arcology citizens (Mitsuhama Computer Technologies, though not neccessarily in Japan) who wake up one day to find the life that they knew gone. They don't know where they are, how they got there or what else to do.

Characters
What I am looking for are characters who have never set foot beyong the archology. Regular people who are finding themself in an irregular situation. Not neccessarily dumb or nieve, but definately a bit ignorant to the world at large.
Be creative and have some fun there is no reason that any of the standard races and archtypes couldn't be included, they would just have been using their skills in legal endevors until now.
A Rigger could have been a cheufer or a spider
Any of the combat oriented archtypes could have been corp security
Mages could have been researchers
technomancers could have been researchers or even experiment subjects
Hackers could have been computer security
or you could just be some teenager with a talent or two.

Everyone gets the advantage 'Erased' for free.
Create characters using 300 BP with all standard character creation rules.
Don't bother buying gear and contacts (though resources could be spent of other things as normal)
Character creation is limited to what is available in the core rule book without approval.

If you are interested let me know and we can work together to create the characters.

Hi!
I have an ork adept with corp background, regular gunslinger, needs only a few modifications for this one,
or a troll close combat specialist. Which one would be OK?
Also I have an elf shaman, but it would be very limited from 300 bp and I don't know how could I justify him working for corps, although he's a would-be opportunistic raven totem, I can make him a researcher or a candidate for Mitsu's new eco friendly PR campaign as a literal face.

So my question is: mundane, little magic or full-blown magic is needed?

I have no preference for the magic level of this. If everyone is a magic user then it will be magically base, if nobody plays magic users then it will be much more mundane focused.

I just have a rough idea on where to go with this and i am leaving options open to the players. I will work with what the players present.

Background
Jhon enjoyed his life in the MCT Arcology; it was ordered, stable and held few surprises. Working as a low-grade investigator - mostly handling minor security breaches like petty pilfering and domestic civil violations - catered to the way life was supposed to be. If you broke the corporate law, you paid the penalty; which was just the way Jhon liked it.
Unmarried, and with only a few friends (security personnel all - the 'higher ups' discouraged fraternizing with the 'sheep',) Jhon led his simple, predictable life with contentment.
That is, until the drek hit the fan...

If there is still room i would like throw in a character idea that i had.

he would basically be a human cubicle slave. except he takes advantage of the corporate gym to keep himself sane.

his skillset would be limited to athletics. and some martial arts that he practices with a few other coworkers.
he would also have a little bit of throwing skill. like lobbing things, so he can toss trash over his cubicle wall to annoy the people around him and break up his monotany.

he might have some cyberware but it would only be to replace stuff that he injured during his workouts and such. maybe some muscle replacement, or maybe a cycberlimb from when he sparred that trog that was having a bad day.

anyway, im new to the play by post but i would like to hop right into this stuff so i can learn it quick and have fun.

EDIT:
I guess i forgot to mention what would keep him employed. His knowledge skills would be based around accounting and he would pretty much just be a number cruncher/paper pusher.

I'm willing to do a build, tell me what holes might be in the group, and I'll build what I can for 300 points to fill said hole. So, what does the team need to stay alive? Medic, anyone?
