Ok, so for those of you that wanted to test out how your new characters did in combat this thread was supposed to be a "battle arena" of sorts but it's now morphed into something else entirely. It's basically like a one shot shadowrun where we cut straight to the action. Emphasis is on getting through the run in few IRL weeks. We've lost some great runners in the line of fire, but UB veterans now have several small runs under their belts and can tell some pretty great anecdotes at their local runner-hangout.
Even though it's action intensive, all skills will come in handy because sometimes the best way to win is by not even firing off a shot. This is for all archetypes and I really love when people use a variety of skill, strategy, and teamwork. Just to warn you though, it can get dangerous, but if it's not dangerous, then it's not shadowrun.

Create a character with the standard 5th edition rules i.e. 25 karma, normal Nuyen for each priority level, normal Charisma x 3 Karma for contacts.
No matter which scenario we're on, this will always be the OOC thread for UB. Scenarios that have already finished can be seen on the forums and it says (finished) in their title. HOUSE RULES:
(This list will grow, i'll post updates. I've scratched a lot of 4e house rules so we're pretty much starting fresh.)PbP Guidelines and things to keep in mind: (this will grow too)
-- I want rolls to go in the IC thread, yep, that's right, the IC thread. It should interrupt your In Character dialogue in this format:
[OOC: Hi guys i'm metagaming!].
You see that quote box? If you're not describing what your character is doing or thinking, then you should use these or put it in the OOC thread. For example, a question to the game-master would be something that would go in OOC brackets or the OOC thread.
--I want rolls in this format: Agility 6 + Pistols 6 [Accuracy 5 + Lasersight 1= 6] (12d6.hits(5)=3)
or Agility 6 + Sneaking 5 [Physical 4] (11d6.hits(5)=4)
So put the limit with all the limit modifiers inside the square brackets. I know this is more tedious than 4e but limits are important in the SR5 rules so we gotta keep track of them and I can't be looking at your character sheet to calculate a limit for every die roll.
-- Please link your character to your profile signature.
-- Dialogue should be in quotation marks and color coded: "Hello World"
-- Try not to jump the gun too much...make sure your strategy when you post makes room for a few different outcomes. For example: "I'm gonna walk down the hallway and turn the corner and then try the room to the right and here's my lockpicking roll"....this is fine if you're totally ready for me to completely interrupt this action at any point. Step by step is probably a little bit better....that's why we zero in on the action scenes in UB. Don't jump the gun on initiative either.
--Interrupt actions are tricky in PbP so i'll say you can interrupt with an action if you declared in advance that you were waiting for something specific. Once a post goes up though and you didn't declare what you were holding your action for, then we won't go back and change posts to reflect your interrupt.
-- If you don't specifically declare (IC or OOC) in a post that "something" is in a certain "state", then i'll usually just assume for it to be in a "normal" state, the last state it was in, or what i deem for it's state to be. If you want something in a "special" state, then you have to make it explicit.
