Saw someone asking if this was open, so I thought I'd ask if it still was as well. Got an old SR3 character I've converted over to SR4 that I might want to use in this occasionally. Just let me know if it's cool. :)

Shouldn't be. We're pretty flexable about that here. But then, if I can bring in one that was converted from 3rd ed, which was converted from 2nd ed...I don't think that there will be a problem as like Wyrm said, you don't break the rules.

Now I just need to figure out a way to write up the character's bio without making her look like on of those 'Mary Sue' characters mentioned earlier. The GM let us get away with a whole lot of crap (and paid us about two million either every month or every other month).

Id say. keep it simple, keep it consice, keep it real. Show merits, show flaws, give them quirks. Show there is more to them than the first impression, there is more beneath the surface. Be proud of victories, but also never ashamed of defeats. Also show that for whatever they have gained, there has always been a price to pay. In short, make them (meta) human.

Trim away 95% of your gear (and 'bought' contacts).  Allude to stuff; don't write anything out, just 'suggest' something -- and keep it incredibly vague.  If, in your time playing her, she fought it out with great dragons as part of a CIA hit squad, just mention that she did some black contract work for the UCAS government.  Or, better yet, don't say anything about her employers, or her runs.  "She was active in the eastern UCAS from '56 to '64."

Might be fun to put threads up for some of the other books, like the Street Legends thread.

So..uh..if I had a character I wouldn't mind dropping into this to help flesh him out/get some meat on his character, how would I go about doing that?

I'm not saying he's completely 1D, but I need to write/be him for a bit, wear the mask and see if it fits, ya know?

Pretty much just read the rules, and then jump in a post. Might be a good idea to read the last few pages of the thread to see what's currently going down, but other than that...nothing special you need to do.  :D

I love all the stories that show up in here. I feel bad for the Murphy clan, for Money, I see wonderful tension between members (Specifically Oro and Ice).

It's just well written collaborative fiction!

Also, posted in the bios, so I guess I'll figure out SOME way of jumping in.
