I'm thinking a starting a PbP thread with a sort of different direction in mind.....

 I interested in people with more than one character and whose characters might have a common association (Decker Group, Magic tradition, gang members, etc,....). One of those characters might be a leader of sorts.Or at least has a responsibility to the others not usually covered in other games.
 A responsibility which the group (of characters) relies on. They would have skills that are vital but not typically common in games....

Examples;
A non combat mage type (artificier, arcanist)
An Industrial mechanic
A medic

I'm wanting to create a PbP game where they would get to play.  They would be the type of character with a lot of resources or a set of skills that give them access to a lot of resources. Something the other runner characters in the player's group of characters could call on.
Examples;

Spell formulas
Medical treatment
Living space

The purpose of the games would be to maintain/grow that resource. With the GM playing the anti-hero where possible. Here are some limitations I'm thinking of.....

If it's a new character;
Mundane with at least  medium lifestyle prime runner.
Awakened can be either high lifestyle or prime runner.

The games are expected to be relatively short. Possibly not so difficult either, but you never know. The starting area would be discussed and based on the characters actually playing. I do expect just one thread going maybe cutting back and forth between scenes but again, you never know......

this sounds great. I've always wanted to run out my NPC boat rigger as a full PC!
he's ex special boat service (UK military) and specialises in infil/exfil, underwater operations and sabotage, though plays primarily as a rigger/wheelman

Re-starting the topic.
An old thread of mine....

The same basic idea though. just a place to build a resource.
Any deckers out there loking to run in their off time?
Maybe some astral contact, (combat?) travel?
Some black market face work yo uwant to RP?
Any ideas welcome.
