Let's show off some characters...
« on: (19:07:48/10-03-16) »
This probably belongs in the Character Generation forum, but I just took the time to re-build an NPC from my Shadowrun campaign.

Here's an AR-based Adept Hacker (well, glorified script kiddie), who is a survivor of Seattle's mean streets.  I'm actually pretty happy with the way she turned out.

Mouse

Dispositions                  
If they can't see you, they can't get you.                  
Might makes right, but flight makes sense.                  
Just survive, somehow.                  
Always have an out.

Cues                  
Trust you?  Not gonna happen.
That's the plan?  Where's the part where we survive?   
Have you seen the prices at Stuffer Shack? Now that's criminal!
That sounds… dangerous and stupid.  Emphasis on the stupid.   
You gonna eat that?
I know a place where I can hide. Not sure I want to share it with you.   
Please don't leave me alone with HIM!               
Time to go!   
Can we please, just for once, skip the part where we have to cheat death?
I've slept in worse places.

So I decided to try out the character creation to have a hang on it when I help my players create their characters.
Here's Hawkhorn, the urban brawl veteran turned Shadowrunner fanboy who is often a mentor to new players in the table, being a bullet sponge that helps the party set up plays.
I am quite pleased how easy was to re-create this archetype in Anarchy.

Hawkhorn              
Troll   Street Samurai   Big Bro   Know-it-all   Idealistic     
             
Dispositions

It is in the Shadows were true freedom lies.

Trust me, this will work!
A stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.   
Put your back into it, mister!
That's a bold move! I like it.   
Well, off to the frontline. Again.
You ok, chummer? Let's share a beer after they finish patching you up.   
Make the impossible happen!

I wasn't going to spend the money... everything they put out on pod casts\announcements just didn't sell it for me.

But after seeing these two character write-ups I guess I have to take the plunge after all.

All you're missing is a squeaky nose and a squirt flower full of acid.  ;)
It is better to be crazy and know it, than to be sane and have one's doubts.

"Nothing is wrong if no one can stop you."

Remember, you're only a genius when they need you. The rest of the time you're just an asshole.

Well, drek. Looks like Timmy fell into the Dissonance Well again.

Whisper
Human - Combat Decker - Ninja - Chatterbox - Vagabond

Dispositions

Everyone can understand technology if you just explain it!
Silence is Golden.  But very, very boring.
Limp Noodle = Dead Noodle
Newbs suck.



Str: 2
Agi: 6
Will: 3
Logic: 6
Cha: 4
Edge: 2
Essence: 3

Skills
Hacking 5
Stealth : 2
Electronics : 3
Con : 1
Firearms (Automatics) : 3 (5)
Hotels: K

Amps:

4 - Datajack and Implanted Little Hornet Cyberdeck.  May access the Matrix via full VR, +1 die to Matrix actions; Firewall 2; MCM 8; re-roll 1 on Matrix Actions; run 1 Program.  -1 Essence.
3 - Custom Cyber Arm - Implanted Remington Suppressor Machine Pistol; Re-roll 1 Dice on Agility.  - 1 Essence
3 - Wired Reflexes (2) - +1 attack, 1 Plot Point per Scene -1 Essence.

Qualities:
Codeslinger - +2 on Hacking rolls
Catlike - +2 on Stealth rolls
Lifelong Hacker: At times, Whisper must spend a Plot Point to avoid prioritizing petty (or grand) Hacks over other concerns.

Cues:

Always be ready to move.
The best Hackers are unknown.
If you go loud, go big or go home.
AR>RL
If you can Hack it, they must not have wanted it that bad.
It's not paranoia, it's good field craft. 
Hack everything, all the time.
Eye on the Prize.
Improvisation is a plan. 
R.E.R.O.  (Reboot Early, Reboot Often)

Armor
Armored Clothes - 6

Weapons
Silenced Ultrimax Rain Forest Carbine
Victorinox programmable pocket Knife

Gear
Lived in Ford Americar, Toolkit, Fake SIN, Vision Enhanced Contacts

Contacts
Silas the Fixer
Jimmy Whiz!  Ace Runner


Of no fixed Address Whisper gets by day to day living in Luxury Hotel rooms, vacant house, unused Air B&B rentals, and empty time share condos.  Not that she pays for any of it.  Whisper will hack your commlink and run through your personal data and ask "why haven't you called your mother back?" before she shakes your hand.  The Matrix is full of things to take, and if people don't want it taken they should do something about it.  On a run if Whisper actually gets quiet, it's gotten serious.  Violence and mayhem are preferably used for escapes and distractions.

Note:  Whisper is a lot like Brooke from Orange is the new Black, just replace the hippy-dippy stuff with a stream of technobable and things you thought were private.  Throw in a splash of Tiny Tina from Borderlands and you get the idea.
