Hehe. Thanks Hobbes! I think there is already a disguise kit there. I did forget a subvocal mic though.  Not sure what else I want to buy if I ditched the B&E gear. Probably more bioware, but not sure what. Maybe a higher lifestyle and/or a car?

I have my entry to the technomancer coming up. I liked your build a lot, mine is coming along similarly. I am finding with the skills cap at basically 4, I am wanting to drop skills and Resonance for more Edge. With machine sprite diagnostics limited by skill rating, having higher rated machine sprites may not be necessary. Higher edge may help get more services out of sprites and help with the tough hacks that starting technohackers have more trouble with than starting deckers. Machine Sprites will eventually be helping with shooting (gun), healing (medkit), and hiding (armor), and perhaps a crack and fault sprite for help in the Matrix.

10 Karma spent on Strength, 10 on Nuyen, 6 on 1 rated skills, negative PQs balanced me 2 more karma, with 1 leftover for the start of play.

I suspect any Technomancer builds focused on Sprite Wrangling and Hacking are going to look very similar, yes.

This was a challenge.  .....  Cybereyes on a Dwarf....sheesh. 
I was thinking the same thing about the build in general and the eyes.  I mean, you can't really tell by the pic those are cybereyes...  But anyway, I also wrote up the Covert Ops Specialist, but I went with more skills than cyber and the Narcoject pistol for her main weapon.  (It's freaking expensive to shoot Narcoject!)  I really wanted to fit in a smuggling compartment, but Money was real tight.  All in all I think she turned out ok.  I hated to rely on the Jazz, but it was the only good way to get a decent init, and it's just for when things get real bad.

Need to get in someplace without a fuss big?  Sweetie, I'm your girl.  See, I learned a long time ago that getting what you want is all about being seen how you want to be seen and then finding the right spot to apply pressure.    Front door locked down tight?  Let me try the top floor first, I'll buzz you in.  Don't worry about the locks, I'll sweet talk them real nice.  Need to go in during business hours?  Not a problem, just let me climb to the top of that cute wageslave over there, I think we'll have a lot of chemistry together.  And if someone finds me doing inappropriate things in inappropriate places, well I've got some chemistry for them too.  One little kiss from my night-night pistol and they go down, nice and quiet like.  My girl Narcoject is a good friend of mine, and we both find that chemistry is usually people's weak spot.

"Offense brings in the crowds but Defense wins Championships" was the motto for 20th century football, though the players have changed the game has not. It's successor Urban Brawl the same mantra holds true as well, and stuck as the idea to which a girl could overcome being born a Troll. Though coming from a lower middle class wageslave family, she was always excluded by her peers. But she found that the kids from just a few blocks away were more accepting of who she was & she learned that being able to take a hit helped her team win. That girl is all grown up today but the lessons she learned have stayed the same. She can take a hit and shrug it off where others would fall, and so she is still helping her team win in the much more dangerous games being played as an adult.

So of course this would be better as an Ork, since basically every Troll build is better as an Ork. Swap Resources & Metatype and have very similar Attribute line but an extra ¥135,000 really goes a long way. But the Art is the Art... so there you go, a DP of 20 with the Ingram & Soak Pool of 37 (with another easy +3 using PPP arms & legs, Gel Pack on the Armor Jacket using Run & Gun.) Narco would also really help get the full effect from the Kamikaze but a DP of 14 against at worst a Threshold(3) Test is easily made.

“          “You are the viper, waiting to strike. You are vengeance, waiting to be fulfilled. You are death.” This mantra you repeat to yourself each day, practicing the motions of what some unenlightened would call ‘Gun-fu’. To you Gun-fu isn’t a form of combat. To you it is a way of life. You live and die the speed of your triggers, the steadiness of your hands. Let those lesser beings play at being gunslingers, for you know the truth. In the end, you alone will be standing.
          It started when you were young, a simple BB gun in your hands. A devil rat was scavenging in the trash bins close to your home. One shot, one kill. 300 yards. Your family repeated the story countless times when you were growing up. Something that came naturally to you seemed so extraordinary to them. That’s when you knew you had a gift. But gifts are only good if they can be used, to serve a purpose. So you honed your skills.
          Your skills now inspire dread in the hearts of those you hunt. Your skills have great value in the Shadows. But, no matter what, you will always remember the devil rat.”
"No gods, no kings. Only angels and men."

Active Skills- Automatics(Submachine Gun) 6(7)(+2), Sneaking(Catlike/Urban) 5 (+2)(+2), Blades (Axes) 5 (+2), Perception(Visual) 2 (+2).

Just a  reminder: It's one skill at 6 *or* two at 5... everything else is 4 or less.

That said, she's interesting if thin on ability. Trolls have it hard!

hey Wakshaani , awesome thread idea ,
and very good to help people new to Shadowrun.

Once i get the time to wade through the metric ton of rules that is the main rulebook alone ,
i will be looking for some quickstart character sheets that are a match for the challenges set forth in a typical adventure i would run.

Awesome that you have this contest going ,
i hope that once the contest is finished , someone will have the pdf skillz ,
to modify the different archetypes given through your contest added to the quickstart sheets available for Shadowrun ,
so that people can have nicely done character sheets with cool artwork to immerse them .

Also have a look at this thread :

This was a challenge.  .....  Cybereyes on a Dwarf....sheesh. 
I was thinking the same thing about the build in general and the eyes.  I mean, you can't really tell by the pic those are cybereyes...  But anyway, I also wrote up the Covert Ops Specialist, but I went with more skills than cyber and the Narcoject pistol for her main weapon.  (It's freaking expensive to shoot Narcoject!)  I really wanted to fit in a smuggling compartment, but Money was real tight.  All in all I think she turned out ok.  I hated to rely on the Jazz, but it was the only good way to get a decent init, and it's just for when things get real bad.

Yeah, or if I could say it was a curvy elf, not a dwarf.  That "C" Priority for Dwarf is really an anchor for this build.  I wanted to go with Bioware instead of cyberware, but just didn't have the budget.  If I had complete freedom it would be an elf with a monowhip.  "C" Skills and "D" Meta plus stats more in line with what you're actually trying to do.  I was thinking of adding a Taser to her list of gear, just went with some stick and shock ammo.

I think I will give this a try, but I am not a fan of the skill limits, it is way to harsh on some of the ideas, such as any full mage, face, decker, or weapon specialist. But if I have to live with it I will.
Turned in a live tox-shaman for 1 mil ¥ (split 4 ways) and helped kill another one. But piss off the other 3... Oophs, looks like more money down the road for me. B)

Well, Decker is a bit of a challenge, as the core rulebook Decker has lots of skill 6's and a skill 7, so much higher to start with. In addition, they are a Dwarf, so we're already into needing at least priority C on Metatype. It does, though, have a few issues, including throwing only 5-6 dice on three combat skills, defaulting on perception, sneaking, only having one initiative pass half the time, having no Fake SINs or licences, and having no transport. Lets not mention the illegal hacking specialisation <grin>. The deck is also a bit of a liability, the decker is throwing large dice pools, but will usually be hitting the deck's limits.

So I've decided dropping skills to B, as it's a bit crazy otherwise with the skill limit, and upped Resources to A. So Resources A, Skills B, Metatype C, Attributes D, Magic E. If Metatype could have been C you end up a lot better decker, but we're told Dwarf.

Main changes are augmentation, could be cyberarms we're dealing with, though not obvious ones. So added Cerebral Booster, Synthetic cyberarm (main, left arm) of cheese, better cybereyes to include smartlink, reaction enhancers and wired reflexes to improve initative and driving. Then it's just a car, better medkit, loads of tools so she can use the skills, and programs. Not forgetting, of course, a better deck, Fake SIN and licences. Skills are rounded out a little, and only taking one firearm skill, not two. As a finishing touch, an extra point of edge. Code of Honor was broader than needed, so narrowed it, switched Codeslinger to Hack on the Fly as it's more commonly used, and rather than increasing hacking to 7 with aptitude, went for Juryrigger based on the knowledge skill flavour and Quick Healer. Was tempted to put deck in cyberarm, but Herolab was discounting it at used.

Even with the silly extra limit on Healing, is now throwing a lot of healing dice and can get 4 boxes healed, 6 for gunshots. Also 15 dice on shooting, 10 unarmed at 10P due to cyberarm cheese, has a little more armor, most dice pools higher or the same, and now always getting at least two initiative passes a turn. Unfortunately engineering a little lower, and decker skills a bit lower due to only one 6 or two 5's rule. Plus always handy to have a strong and agile arm for engineering!

I'm starting to like the skill rule, forced this from a narrow decker (as my own dwarf decker was) to a pretty decent decker/first aider/gun bunny (in a campaign at those power levels).

I've never done a physical adept before, but the picture really inspired this idea. I used Chummer5 so there might be an error in here that I missed.

Background:

It started not long after you turned 12. Some tough was thumpin' on your older brother. You wanted to help and the next thing you knew, he was on the ground. A week later, he came back with his friends and some weapons this time. The bullet that grazed you awoke the ferocity of Shark and you soon had dealt with these toughs. Though still proud to be apart of the streets, your relationship with Shark has led you to be much more than you ever dreamed of. You've even made friends with people who find your world interesting. but regardless, the thrill of a brawl sets your blood singing as you move around your opponents with ease.

Elven Face

This is an elven face with a bunch of inobvious cyberware ;-)
I prefer bio-adept faces myself but they won't work without some of the supplements.
I followed the one skill at 6 and the rest at 4 or below with only one specialization restrictions.

This chap is a rather good starting face focussed on Con (19) and subterfuge (Sneaking 18 in a city, with his Chameleon suit on).
He's not too shabby at Gymnastics (13) to aid in climbing, B&E etc. and he can sprint when the going gets tough (Running 7).
He's a decent Negotiator (17) and Impersonator (17).
He can also shoot a pistol straight (15) and pick a lock (16) or even a maglock (15).
He's a Native English and Sperethiel speaker and can chat very well in Russian (10) and Japanese (10)

The Ruger would load a few tracker tags and gel rounds (simple action to select the specific chambered round you want to fire).
The Beretta lives in the hidden arm slide.
He's got a pretty good load-out of B&E gear.

The Orc with two cyberarms.  I think I did the opposite of what I've done with other Arch type challenges, and lowered stats / raised skills.  Since the key skills were driven by the Cyberarm stats, I lowered the physical stats, pumped up mental stats, skills, and Edge, and went with the almost identical cyberware and gear.  Result is about the same dice pools for Shooting and Stabbing, but a more robust skill list, lots more Edge, more soak, and a just a splash faster.

It started with the Arms. That big dumb Russian that though he'd stop your crew with his "Knife hand" and "Gun hand".  You made them yours.  Then it was the eyes. The corp security officer trying to score with his bosses. He shoulda kept his head and his shiny eyes down. Then the metal on your bones, new skin, 'ware in your head and spine. All the Johnsons kept saying you needed to get faster to play in the big leagues. So you and your crew took a big job. Only three of you came back. You headed to the Street Doc, they headed off.  Your old friends from the neighborhood say you've changed. Maybe. But they know, the Johnson's know, the other Runners know, when you say you'll take a job, you mean it. Because that is what matters to the Street Samurai.

I've never done a physical adept before, but the picture really inspired this idea. I used Chummer5 so there might be an error in here that I missed.

Can you show where your Karma was spent?
Also, by my count, you're at 26 points of Attributes, not 24. I could be wrong (Or this could be where some Karma went!), but, it jumps out.

Ah, that's where the error was. Edge 2. I did spend karma on an attribute, but not two.
