I'm interested! Is it newbie friendly, and is there still a dice rolling aspect to the game? I guess I'm just curious how it all works and I'm open to learning, if someone is open to teaching.

Aria has been running games for years, so if you are interested in ongoing play it is pretty good to get hooked into their games.  When one wraps up the next one is generally already announced and coming together. 

And this particular run is during the black-out in Toronto (taking the setting from 30 Nights, but not the adventure), hence the not suggesting a matrix based character, as there is not much in the way of matrix.  (The Technomancer is there for story/character-historical reasons).

I'd say this is likely a result of bad editing. That the original author's intention actually was to explain that your current Magic is reduced by 1 for every full point (every whole integer worth) of Essence lost.

The alternative (that at 5.9 your current magic is reduced but you are allowed to spend karma to raise it back up and later, at 5.0 your maximum magic is reduced by 1 and then your current magic is reduced again at 4.9 essence) is pretty strange, not at all streamlined and [obviously] not intended (if you ask me).

For info we have a technomancer, adept rocker, adept fighter and a rigger so you can probably take on any archetype, although I’d steer away from matrix user…

I’ve got an SR6 game on RPGCrossing that has 4 active players but we’ve just lost another player so there’s a slot free… we’re just about to leap into the action so you’ll have missed the intel gathering bit, such as it was… if that sounds vaguely interesting then check out https://www.rpgcrossing.com/forumdisplay.php?f=19038

Your Current Resonance drops 1 immediately, your max resonance doesn't go down until you get to 5 essence.

Pg 38, Essence:
(specifically, anytime your Essence goes below any whole integer, you lose a corresponding point of Magic or Resonance).

Pg 168, Initiation:
Your maximum Magic rank is 6 + Initiate Grade (reduced by one for every full point of Essence lost).

Pg 195, Increased Maximum Resonance:
The natural maximum for your Resonance attribute is 6 + your Submersion grade (reduced by one for every full point of Essence lost).

Hoping to see if anyone is interested in helping out an SR newbie who wants to learn play by post. Able to join Discord servers. I don't have any reliable blocks of time to play a real game, and I really want opportunities to get into fiction writing. Hit me up, and thanks in advance!

But then again, why would not just hack the inner host directly in that case?
Or just spoof commands to devices inside hosts without hacking the host?
This is actually explicitly prohibited in that section of Hack & Slash. You are not allowed to execute any matrix action other than matrix perception against "devices or icons" on the inside of a host (aside from using send message across the event horizon). That being said, puppeteer and editor are not matrix actions but complex forms.

The section also states that you have to acquire access via brute force, backdoor entry or a direct connection before you can "attack" an icon on the inside of a host. If this also applies to puppeteer and editor or if these take a special place and create an explicit exception depends on how one interprets rule precedence. It appears, the access requirement is intended to apply to these complex forms as well (which is fine for me).

I read it as if you can see the host network architecture from the outside as well as devices inside hosts.
But that you need to enter the host to connect to hosts inside the host network or devices inside the hosts.

Or use a direct connection.

edit.

But as most times in this edition, the language is not very exact.
It can probably be played both ways :-)
But then again, why would you not just remotely hack the inner host directly in that case?
Or just remotely spoof commands to devices inside hosts without hacking and entering the host...?

Gear / Re: More 6E gun questions

In previous edition flechette had a DV of +2 against unarmed targets. I wonder if perhaps flechette had a DV of +1 in early iteration of SR6 and that weapons with flechette already factored in are still listed in the gear section with this in mind. And that they later gave them -1 DV and higher AR, but that this was never reflected in the gear section.....
