Due to unforceen circumstances, I had to take the GM's seat and thus vacate my position as player in this game. Thus, we are looking for a third player to fill in my shoes. At this point I am only looking for concepts and backstories and once that is settled we will work on stats and player sheets. Meanwhile, the story with existing players will continue and the new player will be introduced at an opportune time.

Are you guys still looking for more?  I have a skillwired face I think might fit in.  She was going to be a freelance johnson but I could make her a current johnson for KE instead.

AFAIK HydroRaven has given up on that game.
But he started a new recruitment at http://forums.shadowruntabletop.com/index.php?topic=25607.0

But just in case: I'd still be up for a continuation of Seattle Undercover  :)

Sounds like an interesting concept, but I'm still trying to wrap my mind around the idea KE needs a Johnson.

P.S: If we have the numbers, I'm all for continuing the storyline.

Even Ares needs deniable assets

Ares, yes. But KE? Why do they need an undercover face?

Well, undercover police men aren't unheard of, neither is using deniable assets to trip up a big fish.  ;)

Sorry, I was under the influence yesterday when i wrote my last reply. Let me rephrase it:

I can see an undercover face if that's what you are looking to make, but a Johnson I can't really find the usefulness besides attracting a flurry of entrapment lawsuits for KE.

Oh you wouldn't be building cases against runners you hired or anything I would imagine but hiring runners to run on targets assets you have under surveillance could always lead to interesting evidence popping up.  KE has a bottom line too I'm sure there are some criminals that are costing them more money than they want to absorb or they could be propping up a crime spree to renegotiate contracts.  I'm sure a creative GM could think of all sorts of things.  However I meant I would be an Ares Johnson and since KE is an Ares subsidiary they would have access to that pool even if you don't think they would have their own pool to draw from.

The name might change but I'm calling her V for now.

V was born to Ares corporate parents.  They installed skillwires in her at a fairly young age to give her an advantage in school and the cut throat corporate world and while it helped her it made her a little lazy as well and it didn't help retain a lot of information but her natural charm and social grooming made up for it in spades.  Her parents noticed her predisposition and sprung for tailored pheromones too.  Her high marks in school thus tended to be as much her convincing her teachers and professors to give them to her as it was based on the understanding of the materials.

V is a bit of an idealist believing in honor courage and ethics, but she is not naive.  She knows others won't agree but it means something to her whether others follow it or not.  She prefers not to kill people at all preferring to use non-lethal means when her words fail her, not something she has seen happen very often.  She follows Bushido in her life working for Ares applying the code in every facet of her life.

I can be more specific depending on your game preferences and concerns you've raised.

Your backstory sounds interesting, I'm still just struggling to find a reason why an undercover detective would pose as a Johnson, and how that would fit in with the other 2 characters already in the game. If you don't mind focusing more on the "face" part of being a Johnson for this adventure, then I say yes. We might even be able to fit a few side missions if you hiring some runners for other Ares-related tasks.

Sure that's no problem.  I don't need to be a Johnson, for the game or anything. I was thinking more along the lines of she's skilled in these types of things she's loyal to the company and she already has a bunch of underworld contacts to use.  Plus she's been looking for opportunities to show what she can do.  I have a chummer 5 character sheet and I can send you the file or I can just post it in the recruitment thread if you'd prefer.
