Rules and such / Re: Quality Control
« Last post by MercilessMing on <06-07-22/1048:22> »
There's actually plenty of ways to gain Edge as a hacker... doing homework on your target, having an appropriate knowledge skill, using VR to hack an NPC using AR, etc.   Granted, Analytical Mind is more reliable, and I agree hackers really need to be swimming in Edge, but AM isn't the only way to get your Edge... not by a long shot.

I hope this topic gets some space in Hack & Slash.  There should be some official expectation for what qualifies as situational edge.  Was glad to see the VR hierarchy mentioned as a source of it in the FAQ.  In a make-believe internet of the future that runs on not-magic, new people especially need help conceptualizing how things should work.

That does depend on a GM remembering that the rules note they can grant Edge for circumstances, so that you can gain Edge through other means than just what is stated explicitly. Support-mages have the same weakness: they depend on a non-jerk GM that recognises the spice Edge must flow.

I'll let you know if I ever get around to starting a campaign again. :'(

I do recall looking into 'take the bombing thing, mod weapon mounts of a jetpack-glider frame, have them fire 10 grenades instead of 6 because the mount comes with more capacity, and let it rain 60 party grenades per turn for 5 turns in a row'. The conclusion was that it costs you 57k but will result in massive death. I want to write that into a story!

I imagine the smuggler book also has some nice stuff? I forget, it's been ages since I read that. https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/123829/Shadowrun-Coyotes

If you like getting out of the sprawls, you owe it to yourself to read through the "Redneck Runs" thread on the Dumpshock forums.  They both provide lots of adventure ideas and paint a picture of life beyond the edges of the sprawls.  http://forums.dumpshock.com/lofiversion/index.php/t37293.html

I can't see getting rid of Analytical Mind, as Deckers have few ways of gaining Edge.  But raising it's cost to 10 or so is fair, and a bit more balanced.  I hope we get some good new qualities in Decker book this year.

I would say Analytical Mind is "mandatory" more in the vein of its cost is so low, rather than the +1 Edge is so good.  There's actually plenty of ways to gain Edge as a hacker... doing homework on your target, having an appropriate knowledge skill, using VR to hack an NPC using AR, etc.   Granted, Analytical Mind is more reliable, and I agree hackers really need to be swimming in Edge, but AM isn't the only way to get your Edge... not by a long shot.

Toxic tradition and toxic spirits weren't included in Street Wyrd, but I wouldn't rule them out from EVER getting covered.

Hello.  I remember the name.  How are you?

Is anyone still playing and can you put me in touch with them?
