IMO the Sigma is the best SMG on the market if you can afford to put the spinning rims on it. I wouldn't advise not worrying about Str unless you are worried about your physical limit. Honestly i think 5 is good enough for now. 3 Str wouldn't help for recoil anyway


Core Rule Book P175
Quote
You get 1
free point anytime you start firing, then you add your
Strength/3 (rounded up) and the recoil compensation of
any guns you are prepared to shoot

So str 2 = one recoil as does str 3

Oh, I'm an idiot. I thought it was Strength/2.... oops.

Edit: For your gear list, it is possible to drop the Low Lifestyle for a Squatter one. It's not the most amazing thing, but that would give you an extra 1600 nuyen, 1400 if you take Extra Secure. Another thing you can do is drop your Fake SIN and Licenses to Rating 2. While that is also not the most amazing thing, for a Street Level character in Chicago, I don't know how useful a high rating Fake SIN at character creation will be.

Definintly worth thinking about the Squatter suggestion, thanks for that suggestion, seems the best way to get the extra Nuyen, I'm more reluctant about the licenses, will see what I can squeeze with the extra 1600 first.

Also, the 20 karma for knowledge skills was specifically for "Interest" knowledge skills.
knowledge skills are broken up into academic, interest, street, and professional.

i dont think you specified which were which.

Is the bad rep that you're a drunk?

I already put the Bad Rep in the recruitment thread, the Alcoholisim is a result of it. Anyway, I realized I actually had a physical limit of 5, had to make some changes to the character to make sure that I got a Physical Limit of 5.

He has the SAPs assigned correctly, I have to assume that the Magic 3 part is a typo.

Squatter does have some drawbacks. Matrix access is limited for one, and you'd have no security at home to speak of and such. But that's GM interpretation.

In both cases though it's something you'll want to update soon - and can update soon. Chances are you'll get money flowing in that you don't know what you want to do with (Adepts are fairly cheap on the maintenance). So you should find plenty of space between the Qi Foci and armor upgrades and such to upgrade your SIN and lifestyle.

The practical differences between SIN 2 and 3 are therefore not that big. Both are good enough for most daily things and both won't stand up to detailed scrutiny, so you're going to have to buy a better one regardless.

Contacts

Jim Grawen Arms Dealer
Connection:3 Loyalty: 4 Metatype: Dwarf
The supplier Blitz gets all her weapons from, they both share a love of gun, and are pretty good friends. Jim occasinally has to keep Blitz from going out and "trying" some of his more recent acquisitions.

Doc Alexji Sujuster Street Doc
Connection 3 Loyalty 2
The Ork Street Doc Blitz always goes to when she needs to be showed up, the Doc is rumored to be involved in black market organ trades, but Blitz isn't close enough to know if it is true or not.

Larry the Rat Fixer
Connection 3 Loyalty 2
Her go-to guy for jobs, Larry used to be a friend until she got framed for betraying some friends to the police. Larry isn't sure if the rumors are true or if her protests of innocent are, so while he isn't burning his bridges, he has brought their relationship to a strict one of businesses.

Johnny "Skullz" Lewis Hacker
Connection 3 Loyalty 4
A Human Hacker who has helped Blitz in the past with her less than stellar skills with Computers. Often goes over to his place for some good rounds of Killing Floor.

Appearance: 5’6”, short chin length black hair, Tough build, 20 years old

Background: Blitz has always had to live a hard life, her family having always lived in poverty in the wrecks of Chicago. Hard became terrible when some brotherhood scum caught her family scavenging, and began torturing them. They left her for last, and in the time it took them to kill the rest of her family, she had managed to escape from the rope they had tied her in, gone to where they had left their weapons, killed the one guy there by strangling him with the rope, and gotten one of their SMGs. Going back to the room, she gunned all of them down. That was when she learned how good she was at shooting people. It wasn’t until years later that she found out that she was an Adept. Blitz is an adrenaline junkie, always looking for bigger and bigger challenges to level her weapons at, only caring that it’s armed. While she did well at first, her failure came when she worked as a local guide for some Shadowrunners who had come into town for a job. She got drunk on the job, and while nobody died, the mercenaries left disgusted, and her rep took a major dive as a result.

Any advice on current build. I do have my Logic pretty low, only part of this I'm really unsire of at the moment.
