New PBP Game
« on: (12:09:24/11-06-16) »
Afternoon

I'm wondering if there would be any interest in a new pbp game that I'm looking to set up. It would be very heavily weighted to the matrix; though there would be some scope for non-matrix characters within the game, I'm just not sure how much at this point.

Ideally I'm looking for 3 to 4 players who want to explore the electron plane, or at least my vision of it  ;D, in more depth.

Update

Character creation
Standard rules created with priority, sum to ten or karma build are fine.
No prime runners, metasapients, surged, infected or AI's allowed.
Characters must have minimum skill levels of 3 in both computer and hacking.
Commlink or RCC hacking with dongles does not exist in my world. All hacking requires a deck or being a technomancer.
Technomancers will use the updated fade values in the errata section.

Ideally character to be created using the latest version of chummer and in the first instance pm'd for review.

Any questions please leave below or pm me.

Not yet sure on the start date of this but probably won't be until the end of the month or beginning of December

I'd love to get into this game. I would play my fav character style a mage decker. The thing is I'm not get st decking rules so your input in that area would help me out.  Let me know when you want my character and if there are any limitations since I'm starting a karma build of a mage decker.

Thank you foe gming for runners like me.

I'd be up for sure, and my current character in Umbrae Europae is Matrix-heavy (decker/rigger).

I would be interested although it would be in the more non matrix stuff. 😋 Mage/ face.

Well that's a tough build given the skill, resource and magic demands it will place upon the character. I look forward to seeing it and will happily give you some advice/input as well. Part of the purpose of running this particular game is to help people get a better understanding of the matrix, that and the fact I love the matrix,  deckers & technomancers in general.

Hola senors!

I would be very interested in playing a PbP game as a warmage I built up for a game that I unfortunately get away from me due to drastic life changes. He's a powerhouse of a magician with a number of high-utility area control and denial spells and more than capable of helping the team in any number of ways - helped by my own creativity and highly analytical situational awareness.

My only issue is timing. I am currently on leave, but in January I will be back on course with the armed forces and will only have weekend access to my computer. I can use my phone to make some posts during the week but it is unreliable and I won't be able to go in depth since I can't reference anything properly.

At any rate, if you would like an experienced writer with clear tactical thinking skills and a flare for the dramatic, with the obligatory complications present but at least clearly defined, please do let me know!

I'm hoping this game is still up and running. I have changed my mage to an adept decker since I was having fun making adepts, but it looks like we are strong on our Mage base anyway. Stoneglobe just let me and the others know when you want characters by and I'll post my guy here for you.

Have a great holiday everyone. See you hacking the 'trix in the new year.

I can always just go for a mainline combatant instead. That's more my comfort zone, and the personality more closely matches my own. Having a workshop loaded up with enough firepower to level your average city block is always a recipe for a good time, and nothing makes you smile quite as much as hitting the button on your contingency charges to save the day.

Mostly, I just want to know if it is viable with my scheduling constraints. If it is, I'll coordinate with the other characters to determine what role needs to be filled. The only one I don't want is decker/matrix specialist. Never tickled my fancy at all. I can grasp the rules, I just don't want to base my play around them.

I would be glad to participate. I would like to try out a technomancer.

Is this game still a possibility?  I have a Hacker/Rigger concept I would like to try.

I am also very hopeful that this is still a possibility. I'd love to get back to playing regularly, and have a technomancer just about completed!
