I don't think many shadowrunners can be lawful, as we break the law by design.  I think Sammy would be neutral, with a bit of good.

PS: if you're not familiar with alignments, see the attached picture for an explanation

Lawful doesn't necessarily mean following the law, at least by my interpretation. It's more about following a code that exists outside of one's self. Snow, as an example, is a member of the Vory. Though the Vory are a criminal syndicate, they have a hierarchy and a code. Members are expected to follow that code, honor their oaths, and respect their superiors. All of that is Lawful.

So team composition is

Sammy - Neutral Good
Clem - Chaotic Good
Torley - Neutral
Snow - Lawful Evil
O'Connor - Chaotic Evil

Oh, god, this team is going to tear itself apart the first time a tough moral choice has to be made.

Tell me something I didn't know :)

Since there are no laws in Lagos except the law of the strongest (and on the island there is also some semblance of law), things will be more tricky for Sammy and Clem.

Yes we are.  I know that the first part of the artefacts search is in Lagos (or around it, but that's basically the same thing).  And the message said 'exotic location'.  Time to get that water purification spell.

Sound's like O'Connor's type of place. Maybe he should take lead on this one.

Wow.  I am going to have to believe that the GM has a plan for this, because right now I am feeling a bit set up.  I cannot break from what I am doing until sometime Sunday and now I also have to be ready to leave pronto.  I will wait to see if anything develops.

No plan.  Qualities are challenges to be worked around and you take the hits that go with it.  Make it work.

LOL  Alright, we can do this.  Right now I know nothing of what is being discussed with the J and very little of anything happening at the dinner meeting.  Am I to continue winging that meeting?  I can if you have no plan for it, but do not wish to go ahead of my team.

Negotiation: Skill[4] + CHA[6] + Improved Ability[2] + Kinesics[3]: 15d6t5 4

...well, that sucked. No glitch, but I could've done about as well buying hits. Sigh. Though if she's really worried about time, that should either give Sam more dice or take some away from her pool...

Since there's a cooling trail, maybe Torley should ask her how much longer it would take to find a more amenable team?

I would say we set-up a web-ex meeting, but with the matrix blockers in the club, that's going to be a bit difficult.  We can also use Necro's suggestion of course.

Mercy, you can bet good money that the moment we take a run within Seattle, Halloweeners are going to be coming out of the woodworks to take down O'Connor. As for the current situation, how bulletproof is your backstory? How okay are the Vory with Snow moonlighting as a shadowrunner?   If you put in safeguards, they should understand that there are impromptu opportunities within the shadows.

Continue winging, keeping pace with the other timeline, so when the trainwreck happens it is real time.  Enjoying your story, nothing i need to add.
