If you pay essence for it you can cast magic through it, at least as far as cyber-eyes go.
Live in the SF Bay Area and looking for a group? PM me we have a slot open!

Alright! First up, the winner is ... STONEGLOBE!

So here's my shot at the Brawling Adept. I quite liked the concept as it was described so have tried to keep the flavour similar.

Brawling Adept

This one hit all the right buttons for me. Good design, nice backstory, qualities that were fitting, and something simple enough for a beginner to pick up as well as fun for a vet. Stoneglobe, drop me a PM and we'll set up your prize. Woo!

Gold Stars are also given to two more.

HOBBES, you get a gold star for hitting it with quality and *quantity*. Drop me a PM for a sparkle. :)

Last, but certainly not least, Jimmy Pvish gets a gold star for his Rigger. There's a few little things I'd tweak but, overall, it's nice to see and HARD To make. Drop me a PM and line up your sparkle.

Everyone else, THANK YOU! Sorry it took so long to get this end done, but you guys have kicked *booty* and I hope that the thread goes on for a while after this (if nothing else, somebody needs to take a stab at the bounty hunter) ... having new builds for new players is always a good thing.

You guys rock!

Congratulations to the winners!
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)

You guys write a LOT. (Or, well, Chummer kicks out a wordy file. I think every entry here was made via Chummer at any rate.) ...

Wait, you can make Chummer kick out text files?  Can anyone point me at how?  I see options for html, and xml, or I can print to pdf, but I've been wishing there was a way to print it out as text!  I'd thought about entering this challenge, but formatting the character for the web page manually seemed like it was going to add a ton of time.  Ah well.

When viewing the chummer character sheet there is a drop down list in the upper right.  Text Only is one of the options.  The output can still be a bit messy, I try and clean up the skills and sort out the qualities a bit and add notes where karma gets spent.

Hoi, wakshaani , i wonder if you will edit and update the first post with your winners ,
perhaps a link to them or a chummer5 file,
and runner-ups for each category , ie.
not only brawling adept, but also for instance street samurai , decker ; etc ...
would really help the thread if prospective beginners have a list of winners for each of the archetypes,
and perhaps some runners-up , to choose from when picking a pre-gen.

Updating the first post is a good idea, but you might find most of what you want at the link below;

Here is the public link for the library of CRB Archetype builds I'm compiling. 

 https://www.dropbox.com/sh/ld8y7pleumdix6q/AADukq70mpSDDXgyHebpMhp9a?dl=0

The file format I'm using for organizing them is Archetype_Name_YourHandle.xxx   Builder files and PDF character sheets for each build are welcome and appreciated.  To include your build, just mail me at (my handle) at gmail.

A day without a thrill is a day not lived. And while risking yourself can be a thrill, it's not enough. You need to pit yourself against your equals, either in intelligence or fury, for it to feel real.

The Combat Mage is hardly be best spellslinger out there. But when the crud hits the fan, he'll be there beside you after any other mage you've ever known would be down or fled. While he can trade bullets with the best, he doesn't really need weapons - he is a weapon. Sometimes it seems he laughs all the harder going into a fight if he has nothing but his fists and mind to rely on.

Love this thread.  Though not so much the fact that many builds here have the same qualities popping up again and again. Come on guys...

Also why did no one do the Marksman adept ? Is that one allright as is ?

Core book only has so many Qualities, several of them are very Niche.  Not really what you're typically looking for in a build intended for just anyone to grab and play.

Marksman Adept, did you mean the Gunslinger?  I think there were three of them in this thread.  Otherwise if the Archetype wasn't one in the core book it wasn't covered by this thread.

I think he's talking about the sniper in run faster
