Wounded Wolf was born on the Indian reservation controlled by corporations in Pennsylvania.  His parents were Native American rights activists focusing on legal and political aims.  However, ten years ago his reservation was massacred by corporate agents forcing Wounded Wolf to flee the area in favor of the streets.  He was able to find other Mohegan people within various gangs and was able to influence them to join into one group (with other Native American tribal people) to form the Mohegan Hunting Wolves and allying with NAN groups.


Wounded Wolf understands that his war isn't against white people, but the corporates that own them like dogs.  He is spiritual, but also aggressive and never shies from a fight against his enemy.  Sometimes gets a little carried away with his native speaking, wearing, and cultural expressions.  Still, he's a good guy overall.

(This is a BASIC character/I did the best I could considering not having a 5E book)   I used NO KARMA so I can enter into a brand new game or provided a certain degree of Karma and easily add to the basic core.

      Status: Looking for Work

      Available: PDT, GMT-8, once or twice a week.

      Preferred Archetype: Any, though the simpler rules-wise the nicer at first.
      Generation method: SR5E Core.

      I'm searching for an introductory game to help me learn the ropes of the SR5 system and setting. As such, I have a preference for relatively easy-to-play characters just now—probably no deckers or riggers for me at the moment. I'd love a more or less standard SR experience, to show me what I've been missing all these years :)

      Status: LOOKING FOR WORK

      Available: more or less, all the time. I can post so much, you may ask me to tone it down a bit.

      Preferred Archetype: Any, but I tend to get into odd, conflicting sorta concepts. I dig trolls and orks, but i also enjoy creative solutions to seemingly simple problems.

      I've got an ork face i just whipped up in 5th ed, but im down to make others, cause i like to tailor them to the particular game. I can whip one up in no time if ya need me to.

      I've only got the 5th ed rules.

      i can't wait to hear from ya!

      Status: Looking For Work

      Available: Pretty much anytime at the moment; between jobs and flexible. However, once employment sets in I'm typically a Mon/Wed/Fri after 7:00 PM sort of person.

      Preferred Archetypes: I haven't played a game yet, but I am liking street samurai and deckers. However, I might be a liability as a decker. We'll see.

      I only have the 5th ed core book.

      Never ask a woman how old she is...she might tell you and then what would you do.

      Looking for Work: 5e preferably, but I can swing 4e.

      I've got a little folder filled with characters ready to use, though I'd prefer to avoid rigging or hacking.

      (Also open to meatspace games if you're in the UK around the Hampshire/Sussex area.)

      LOOKING FOR WORK: 5e preferred as it's what I've read up on largely

      This would be my first game, desperate to get playing.

      I've an elf ma character ready to rumble. Capable of holding his own in combat with plenty useful spells and skills as an infiltrator/face.

      I'll be able to post at least once most days though I may need a bit of guidance to start with. I'm pretty sure of the rules as long as it's not rigging/decking. I should also say I'm based in UK so may post at odd hours.

      Just pm me if you need a badass  :D

      Availability: UTC +10, a night-owl who's always an iPhone update away

      Build: 4th Edition; All Books; Typically Medics

      Name: Alexandra Rose Tritton

      Alias: Princess M.D.

      Race: Elf

      Sex: Female

      Lifestyle: Middle-High

      Status: Looking for work

      Personality: Alexandra radiates poise & elegance. Her inner strength is complemented by her physical dexterity which she has worked tirelessly to develop. In keeping with her family's legacy, she understands how important those traits are to accept the conflict and loss of life which she witnesses so often on the streets. In truth, she spends more time with pleasantries and developing contacts than she'd like, but persists with them as her family's social standing & wealth are also useful weapons in her battle for life.

      Alexandra is devoted to her craft and to those under her care, working long hours to preserve life wherever possible, which often puts her at odds with her life as a Shadowrunner, a life she hope's to leave once her sister is cured. She cares greatly for her sister, although is beginning to tire of her sister's continued debauchery and the self-destructive lifestyle she has become enslaved by.

      The young elf has found herself becoming more proficient in combat as her new lifestyle continues to see her caught defending herself and her fellow runners alike, with her social skills having little defensive value. In the interests of preventing further injuries to either side however, she has taken to mastering the use of non-fatal dart guns to deal with both biological and mechanical targets.

      Background: Alexandra was born in Tír Tairngire, is the second of Patrick and Eleanor Tritton's three children, and their eldest daughter. In her childhood Alexandra displayed a desire to care and protect those around her, progressively learning first aid and basic medical skills as she grew, to help treat herself and her friends when they became sick or injured. Over her developmental years her family went to some expense implanting the young girl with bioware to help her reach her full potential, providing her with the improved dexterity and critical thinking skills, the life of a future Chief of Medicine demanded.

      She graduated in the top 4% of her class and soon found employment with a biotech supplier with whom her father had connections. After two years of tireless work, Alexandra sought a transfer after her sister Clara abruptly ceased all communications with her, just some months after Clara disowned their parents for "some lower class boy" as her mother had put it.

      It took less than six months to find her sister, during which Alexandra found herself becoming a runner to supplement her wages and increase her visibility in the city's underbelly, Clara had apparently become little more than a hard partying escort, selling the family's good looks for an easy escape in this dark reflection of the world they had both left.

      Confronting her sister however, broke all of those notions in a heartbeat, as Clara revealed she was enslaved by a crime lord who used a dangerous virus to keep her in line, whose progression was only halted by injections given at the conclusion of each successful 'appointment' Clara attended.

      Soon after, Clara moved in with her sister at the medical center between 'appointments', whilst Alexandra works tirelessly to learn more about this virus, and those behind its use, in the hopes of freeing her sister and bringing those responsible to justice.

      I'm new to this and have some time before school starts and during school. As my time fluctuates online, I should be able to at the very least post once per week, but probably be able to do more. As Archtypes go, since I am new I don't really have any preference when it comes to them so I'm flexible. Currently I have one character that's still being tweaked here and there. I only have 5th Edition.

      I'll probably have some things changed over time and I can play other type of characters.
