I'm sorry,  did you just make a GIANT with 9 Charisma?

I feel like Thor or a Valkyrie or the Avatar for some Greek God just walked in the room.

Wow! That racial maximum boost from Troll Reduction is huge, especially for the cost!  Why haven't we seen more Charismatic Trolls about the forum!?

Not sure you noticed, but you gave yourselves 275k for your Priority A. You may have a lot more money to spend. Or just flip Troll and Resources for a lot of Edge!

Mixed up the letters- meta is actually A and resources B.

I figured someone had to stat out Fancy Derek from the Rigger Book.

I want to try one! I'm thinking Friends in High Places for 36 more free awesome contact points (perhaps 3 really well connected and loyal contacts) and a cyberarm for throwing weapons/grenades.... A Magical build may be too tough....

The last time I saw a troll variant I thought was workable as a face was ZB build, and it was something of a strange thread.
This is kind of interesting I think i'd swap leadership for something a little more action oriented. Call me stereotypical but I'd suggest an Axe maybe?

Can you spare 1k for a square metre of EVO Aphrodite Reactive Biomatter? I'm guessing Derek is fancy enough to put it on a coat.

Ah, Giant with Troll Reduction.  I love it.  Especially because the description of Giant already says they end up more slender due to their increased height but unchanged muscle mass, you're essentially just a scaled-up sexy person.  With vaguely bark-like skin.
I'm Madpath Moth on reddit (and other sites).  Feel free to PM me errata questions!
Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

I'll post in your forum if you don't mind - I just like this idea so much!  I'm working out a backstory still, but role: face w/ throwing skills - able to provide cover and AOE damage with grenades, or keep some shurikens around if the negotiations go sour. I am having trouble conceptualizing what kind of fake sin this character would have - I guess he's not a unique changeling, but how many  trolls have such troll reduction about to fake? The character usually relies on his his legal SIN, but has a crappy fake for the easy purchases and tests. It's changable if needed.

I don't mind- I was hoping there would be other versions posted.

Rigger 5 introduced Fancy Derek without really introducing him- so we as a community need to define him.

Heck, he's so fancy, he deserves his own Shadowrun novel.

If imagine that the Troll Reduction: 2 would take of the bark-like skin of the Giant. So you'd be more Arnold in his heyday being a Giant, than Ronnie in his. Might as well shoot for a changing with more Charisma and Glamor, eh?

I threw this together this way because Huggy Bear(Fargas version) was short black pimp daddy and so I figured I go with a tall white pimp daddy but with the clothing tastes of the original.

I actually have been working on a variant to actually play that has Con, Negotiations and Automatics at 6|+2 and Etiquette 1. It's only 10 DP for the automatics but he can config the SMG so he gets no recoil w/FA so 10 DP w/-5 to target defense is still useful.

Considering Fancy Derek's origin, he should be a Decker with a Fancy Deck and a penchant for using Bootstrap to mess with people's spell checkers.

The only problem with Fancy Derek is that it's essentially a one-trick pony.  He's good at being a face, but as soon as that part is over, he's useless.  He doesn't have any skill except for face skills.  Nice idea, but I think in our group he wouldn't last long.
