You've got an assortment of "no cyber" limitations, example the Face.  Is non-obvious cyber okay?  Or if the requirement is to stay at Essence 6, can we suggest an Adept build of some kind?

you can add some non-obvious cyber if needed, but if obvious cyber isn't shown, you can't take it! Yikes!))

It's a good thing that the best ware isn't obvious. Given retinal smartlinks being a thing surgically inserted into your biological eye, I'd say the biggest downside is no datajack. And the biggest downside to the adept face is the book restriction. They just didn't have many options in the core alone.

Ah, reading comprehension my old nemesis.  You've gotten me again.

Thank you Whiskeyjack!

Edit: oh, and dibs on the Technomancer.
Edit: I also notice Specilazations are used sparingly.  I'll limit to once per Character unless Wakshaani says otherwise.

As a youngster what passed for school was always easy.  Not easy, as in didn't need to study.  Easy as in the test questions answered themselves.  The right choice just highlighted, the blanks were filled in.  Then the visitors started showing up, Matrix Avatars without even being logged in.  Soon after AR and "the real world" blended together.  These days, the Sprites are your Allies.  The answers that show up are passwords.  You and your Sprites can get anywhere in the Matrix, and anything that uses power is your Allies playground.  Mr. Johnson calls you when he needs his rivals to have technical difficulties.  Runners call you when they need things to go smooth.  Hiring you and your Sprites is like hiring a whole gang to work the Matrix.

Non-obvious is fine. As long as it matches the art! So, if you have, say, a non-obvious cyberlimb, or all kinds of internal stuff, or bioware organs, no prob.

But it *does* mean that the Ganger needs a cyberarm and that the mages can't have cybereyes. (eek!)

It's not one per person y'know. You're fine to give it a spin as well! Maybe you can do better. (Then again, maybe not!)

Part of the fun, yo. :)

I have a very...specific... idea of what a Technomancer does.  Other folks can easily come up with a different take.  I pretty much took my very straight forward Sprite Wrangler / Hacker build and applied the limitations in the OP.

I'm gonna take a crack at some of these, but I'd like to echo the petition to shed the "One 6 or two 5s" requirement.  That was an old 4th edition thing after all.  Also, my first thought was to take a swing at the Decker, but I found she has the following skills as written:

Electronics GROUP 6
Cybercombat 6
Electronic Warfare 6
Hacking 7

And there's no way I can write a better Decker with those skill restrictions.

The Gunslinger Adept also sneaks a few extra skill points in, so does the Tank.  The Combat Mage picture is obviously *not* Human.  Think of it as an editorial opportunity as well  :  ) 

Edit: and why are a 1/4 of these guys Trolls!    ???

“          A street kid who emerged early in life, he quickly found that his new talents were worth more than he was. He started small, mastering the simple systems of the vending machines to get free food or drinks, satisfying his hunger pains, but then he started growing bolder. He started boosting cars or screwing with the local wageslaves commlinks, getting a kick out of how little Joe Everyman knew about matrix security.
          That all ended for him one day. He picked the wrong mark to mess with and upset a relatively powerful gang. Instead of killing him, they saw his talent and found a use for him in their world. He fell in love with his new direction, and thus his life in the Shadows entered its next chapter.
          At heart, he is not a fighter. He always seems to be hesitant act in dangerous situations, but at least in the matrix he has learned how to call on his sprites to handle such things for him. He likes to remain unseen while doing his work, both in the meat and in the machine, preferring to avoid both physical and digital combat if he can help it.”


Creators note: I normally would have chosen Puppeteer in my list of Complex Forms, but I don’t know if a new player would recognize the Limit Break/Edge trick… so I tried to keep it simple.

You might be able to find the archetypes that I *didn't* work on with subtle clues like that. :)

And, yeah, there were a TON of Trolls. Not the racial make-up I would have went with, but, art comes first.

(Not sure if I can share my proposal, but, I can give my breakdown. I had 16 Archetypes in all, with 8 being human and 8 being Metas. I was torn between either A) one of each gender or, B) three Elves, three Orks, one Dwarf, and one Troll, to project the racial balance in a subtle way, creating a sort of 'crowd scene' that would feel like the Shadowrun world.  Heck, *still* not sure which way's better, but I lean A so I could have a 50-50 gender split across the board. There were assorted ethnicities tossed around as well, with, again, about half whitey and half not, with Native Americans, black people, hispanic folk, Asians (both far east and near east), and I *think* I had a middle eastern person in teh mix as well. Been a few years and I don't remember for certain.)

And now I'm rambling off topic. D'oh.

More or less random gender, ethnicity and race is more natural with a small sample.  Deliberately aiming for a mix and balance is usually noticeable. 

And about impossible to tell what some Trolls and Orcs are anyway  : )

It's less organic, true, but I like having a broad-base of diversity out there to try and inspire people. (Heck, the Elf Go-Ganger was the bishiest thing you can imagine, because of COURSE he was.) It's easy to forget how simply seeing one's self on a page can draw somebody in. (See also: Nichelle Nichols opening a door for black women on TV and one-half of the first inter-racial kiss ever broadcast.)

It's just kinda nice.

...

I'm rambling again, aren't I?

Nuyen 1 Spent
Skills 42 Spent, noted under the skill list.


You could say you're the scalpel in the Shadowrunner tool box.  But that would be wrong, scalpels leave marks behind.  If it's a bomb or bug you need planted, Assassination or Sabotage, this is the Dwarf for your team.  Walk in front door and smile your way past the wage slaves, or slip in like a ghost through heavy security.  Locks, camera's, guards, all the same, just a minor obstacle that require patience and skill to overcome.  Need to make a hot exit?  Still your go to girl.  Combat, explosions and mayhem are all part of the package if necessary, but if you let her do her job, they won't be.  Why use a gun when a knife will do?  And why use a knife when a recording will do so much more...

Re: Wakshaani's SR5 Archetype Challenge.

I tried making a bioware focused elf face, let me know if any of the 'ware is too "obvious". I tried to pick all hidden 'ware and not go cyberzombie.   10 karma spent on Edge, 10 on Strength, 1 on nuyen, 2 for lockpicking and 2 for pilot ground craft.  Are specializations ok as part of the challenge? I tried to keep a lot of the same themes of the archetype face, but adding to the stealth/B&E and combat readiness. Upping Resources and Dropping Skills/Edge  from the archetype, lets the character excel at the archetype's priorities, be more combat ready, and default on a lot of skills better than the ones the archetype gave points to. Not the most efficient but maybe more fitting for higher powered starting games.

Nice.  Personally I would have gone with a knowledge skill of "Walking Dead" somewhere because the Artwork for the face looks like Steve Yeun.

FYI with a locksmith pool of 10 you can get through a Rating 6 lock with just the lockpicks.  If you've got something else you wanted to shop for you could ditch some or all of the other lock-picking tools.  Like a Disguise kit maybe?
