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.

Like you, I'm sure, I'm not interested in arguing about game mechanics. I'd rather play the game. If you expect me to not make mistakes, you're in for alot of disappointment. I'm not a hardcore gamer with nothing else to do. And I hardly consider a handfull of posts 'running in circles'. I did read the book on the sensor and was concerned with it unbalancing the game. Not the least of which is having the ability to instantly know (nearly) every piece of cyberware and weapon in your area. Perhaps I phrased things a bit more concretly than I intended. Clearly I did not understand its limitations.

That being said, I'm going to let the tech stand RAW.
the thing is it only allows you to know the size and the placment, not the exact thing.
example radar can tell that you carry a pistol, what kind, not
radar sensor can tell that there is cyberware in the head, but not if it is math spu or comlink
Of course a medic or a weapon expert could tell more from a knowlage roll seeing it's 3D image, but not everyday Joe

this sensor has it's advantages in knowing, but knowing some extra knowlage, does not mean being able to deal with it, Radar sensor could be sumerised as a bit more precise ultrasound goggles with Astral perception mod, for detecting guns and cyberware.

OK, then let's play the game! Smile Enough about the radar sensor for now, and Daedalus, if you have problems with something, I'll gladly look it up for you and pm the results, because until about march, I'm just sitting in work doing nothing at all, so I have time to be a hardcore gamer, and I know most of the books pretty well. cyclops

Hey Nougat, why 10d6? The things listed equal 15 dice, 14 if you adjust your charisma to 5, but certainly not 10. I was surprised a specialized face adept can only pull 10 dice on a negotiation test, but it turns out you have more.

Daed already posted the results so I will forgo the extra dice, especially seeing how I got him to double the price as it is

Poor broker guy, he's just an in-between. I'm sure they don't trust him with the blueprints of the safehouse where they want the super important package to be held.

Bossy women characters are in nowdays. What's up guys, trying to get a piece of that sweet power the girlfriend/wife has at home? Smile I know it's unfair, but we have to learn to live with it! Very Happy (Try to pull something like Z did if you don't have a...khm, pretty face.)

when you're rolling 15 dice against a pissant go between you get to boss him around. Against a 'real' johnson I assure you that she would show much more respect.

But I do love that she just dismissed the johnson, she has chickballs of brass today

OK now we have the room for an hour so we can get to pissing and hissing at each other ( meaning introductions) then the chip and such. In here OOC, I'd like to propose an idea: what do you think, democratic group or should we point out a leader who calls the shots? Either has advantages and drawbacks, so opinions?

And Nougat, why hand the chip to Andromeda? And "you know what to do"? Have you gals met before? Or do Z knows anything about her?

Democratic most of the time. But as much as shadowrun allows. And expertise in certain regions could give extra say.

Neither,
It was calculated. She was the only other person to say anything in the meeting and it was all based on technical aspects. Z wanted the Johnson to think the group has worked together and knows what they are doing.

Agreed democratic most of the time but in situations where there is an expert then the expert's word is law. Confrence room would be Z, in combat would be Letha, when running from the cops: Andromeda, etc.

Agreed on Democratic with specialized chars taking point when in their specific element. Its the best way to get each char their share of the 'spotlight' and thus highlight the whole reason for differing archetypes.

Ok, my fingers are tired from typing all the big words...

From Mickeys to the Pickup: 10-ish minutes*
From the Safehouse to the Pickup: 15-ish minutes*

It will certainly be interesting and if D. thinks another face will be a good addition, I have no problem with it. I remember him saying that we have enough muscle with us for the mission so I think this will be more than a tower defense run (Tora with dodge 2 and pistols 2 wouldn't last long in a siege) and who knows what an adept and a wired face can do together?
