Iíll admit itís pretty freaky. When u consider it all came outta a yak chop shop it kinda fits though...

Good Lord Adzling you are one cold dude, running a used Skin pocket, that just gives me willies.

I suppose I have a Crow Shaman I've wanted to play.

I do have an old mage build that I came up with awhile back, it's not very optimized though. Would Ex-Whiz Ganger turned Shadow runner work with this game concept?

I feel like it probably would, although if Shade is going to swap over to a Shaman then we are only really in need of, Rigger or an extra muscle character (such as a street Sam)

Muscle is much easier then mages. I don't have one right to hand, but making one won't take long.
Should a spot be open I should say.

Marcus, though I was wanting to keep mages in the fluff centric "rarer to come by" state, please feel free to throw down with the ex-Whiz ganger turned shadowrunner. This is right up the ally for this game.

Blackshade10, A crow shaman sounds pretty good looking forward to seeing the character.

Two mages can become extra muscle especially if one is spirit centric.

Street Name- Helios
Real Name- Unknown
Concept- Wiz Ganger trying to make good
Priorities- A Attributes- B Magician - C Skills- E Human(1)-D Resources

Background- Helios doesn't recall the name his mother called him, when she woke him in the mornings before school. She was always exhausted during those times, just coming in off the night shift. He never met any other family. On some level he knows there were many good times back in that tiny apartment. But when she was killed on his ninth birthday that all ended. She was just another innocent victim caught in a drive-by, that 9 year old boy stopped wanting to remember. He would certainly have disappeared into the system, but he slipped out when a social worker came to collect him up. He awakened both magically and to harsh reality on the streets. There he got lucky, instead of ending up as a snack, he was saved by Sweet Mama Midnight, who handed him over to the Titan Wiz Gang. The Gang gave him everything he had ever wanted, family, food, shelter, something to believe in and a most of all a new name. Thus Helios was born. His talents developed, he learned how to do business on the streets, now works for the gang, doing what needs to get done.  He dreams of rising to be a street legend.

Description- Heliosí keeps his blonde hair short but highlighted fiery orange and yellow, gelled and spiked. Most consider him handsome but he has some rough edges, a nose that been broken a time or six, and a scar along one check. Stormy grey eyes, usually cover with mirrored sunglasses, he wears a black armored trench coat emblazoned with the Titan gang logo, in white gel packs across the back. Under the jacket, he wears black cargo pants, black t-shirt and combat boots He also has a variety of jewelry with various religious and magical symbolism. He regularly practices with a metallic telescopic staff, carefully etched with a variety of runes.

I made this character awhile back as an example character for another game, the intention was to be specifically to be a non-optimized, while ideally being functional example. I spoke up on mage b/c I thought Blackshade10 was switching b/c they felt like that one was needed but wanted to play something else. I am just as happy to play muscle or something else as the group prefers. So if you don't feel like this will work for the team by all means please speak up, I'm just as happy to make something else.

There are several ways to build any mage one that focuses on summoning spirits to do his bidding is a spirit focused summoner. there are also combat focused, alchemy, and support casters. Each of which can do two of these equally well or one better than another and so on.

Alchemy and Artifice and Summoning stuff seems kind of cool.

My guy's a Shaman of the Morrigan.  Likes Corvid spirits.

That's a very cool concept, could have some of your spirits appear as yemen.

Street name Ace
Character Name: Arkhan Sunstrike
Concept: Paladin in the Shadows
Priority: Attributes B (20), Metatype (C) (Elf 3), Skills (22) D, Magic E (None), Resources A (450k)

Character Description- With Rainbow highlighted Blonde hair and a strong jawline, Ace strikes many as a likely candidate for another elven boy band. High Fashion Suits, Fancy Cars, and Playboy image all help disguise from the fact that he is as powerfully augmented Street Sam. In combat Ace prefers to mix it up in hand to hand, controlling the battle space with exceptional speed and well placed kicks. For ranged combat he prefer large pistols with high damage capacity. Seeing them as the optimal compromise between conceal-ability and fire power.

Background- Arkhan has estranged himself from his family. His parents are elven enchanters who could never really manage get over or hide their disappointment that their eldest son lacked any magical talent. Though they were proud he was accepted into the Paladins, they strongly disapproved the cybernetic enhancements he got, as member of that order. Seeking to further his experience, Arkhan become Ace and has taken a leave from the paladins and moved to Seattle to get first hand experience running the shadows.

Karma Summary 27
-10 Cash (20k)
-17 Martial Arts

This concept was originally a mission build, I stripped it back to starting resources, and made some gear updates. Clearly a greater level of optimization. It's intended to be an Adaptable Street Sam build, the goal being to fill in whatever missing skills were needed for a particular scenario. At this level it's combat effectiveness should be decent though it needs some karma investment to reach it intended potential. In the missions version I had it's pool finished out and was down a bunch martial arts trees which combined with it's solid stats gave it some surprising tricks and was generally a very effective melee combatant. 

I have really enjoyed playing both these characters, and would love to run ether of them again. Just let me know which/if ether would fit the concept.
