2nd skin is fine.

normal character gen, you can use priority or sum 2 10.

Troll adept is good but may want at least astral perception with some ability to take on a spirit with weapon focus. Without this kind of back up team may suffer. many places in the 6th world have astral security and this could be very problematic without  having it covered. I would prefer a combat mage with some sort of summoning but adept that can combat with a spirit if need be will do.

Right right, I just went ahead with ABCDE for Avalanche, Got her sort of Stealthy Tracker/B&E specialist sort as another alternative as well as the astral sight (although she's gonna need a bit more astral combat with her next available karma. She's also gonna be pretty okay at catching wind of Surprise attacks thanks to Combat sense, although she's gonna be heavily lacking in smarts and Charisma. I've got a small write up (with no backstory on it) for her currently, I don't know how you want to get the character sheets If we should put them here or make them on a different part of the board. it would be easier probably If I showed you her sheet to look over, but I'm not sure if you want it here or just like a link or something.

I'm also going to work on a back-up idea (although I really like the idea of Avalanche I have in my head) in case bad stuff happens and Avalanche gets Geeked on a run or something. and that back up will probably be a Shaman or Mage that is really deep into spirit stuff, I do want to try using spells eventually within the system.

mystic adept face could still be good, might be spreading the skills too thin though. You are an expereinced player if you think you will be good then go for it.

I just feel if we have no astral presence at all we will have trouble on many runs. L

Lets see if someone wants to join us and I will open up for a fifth player, which for online can get a bit tight, and then if not between a mystic adept and the combat adept with astral perception we could be covered. I will give you guys some runs that are magic light at first so you can build some Karma before hitting you all with some heavier magical securities.

i'd prefer to play a straight adept but if we can't get a mage i can run the mystic.

either way it will be a doppleganger face type.

If you all want to start creating character please fell free. You can PM them to me, post them here, or post a link to them and I will start putting them into herolab and realmworks for my records. If you wish to send me a herolab file just pm me and I will pm my e-mail back to you.

If no-one joins for the mage slot I will NPC a mage until one does, so everyone can fulfill the concepts they wanted.

Thanks,

Yes, I have the full herolab files package for 5th and I just picked up realmworks and am starting to import all of the material into it for use in my games. Wanted to be more organized and to use the second screen when I GM at conventions and such. I truly wished they would sell the setting material for SR on the market so I wouldn't have to put it in myself, very time consuming. :)

I'm working on my character now.  Got qualities and stuff mostly worked out.


Very heavy cyborg, sneaky and stuff.  Has raptor feet and digigrade legs!

How does the crew assemble?  How do we meet?

Everyone gets a free fixer by the name of cowboy. He is connection 4 and is going to be the catalyst for the teams creation. It is up to you all to determine how you met him.  but any connection to him past 3 years ago, when he came into the fixer business is not possible.

He is an ex-street sam, all cyber on him is very subtle and he is rumored to by very handy with pistols. He is a human of Japanese descent. He doesn't wear a cowboy hat or anything that would make him look like he is from the west but rumor has it his quickdraw skills are the stuff of legends and that is how he got his street name. Every time the characters have seen him he has worn a tailored suit either business casual or full dress but you have never seen him carry a pistol concealed or otherwise. He is professional and treats all of his clients with a level of respect that makes you feel like you are the most revered person in the room. Each of you has worked for him in the past and he always sets up an escrow account to hold payment upon the meeting of the missions objectives. He is a firm believer that if the money is held that double crossing his team is less likely and he always looks after his team.

Rumor has it that his old team was set up by a Johnson and they where picked up by Lone Star after a brief shoot out which resulted in the death of his wife Miko, the teams decker. One of the Team members rolled under pressure, but Cowboy never cracked. He never ratted on the Johnson that set them up or the his team mates. That is why he did a stent in the Hollywood correctional facility in Redmond. His time in prison is well known and he is rumored, which has never been verified but makes sense, that he has a criminal SIN.

Know matter what you actual loyalty rating with him is, you are sure, that from his reputation, if it came down to harm to the team your loyalty with him would be very high. But if you harm him or his assistant, it is widely known he takes care of things personally. Several less scrupulous runners have disappeared while laying low after a job that went south for Cowboy. As far as quirks go Cowboy never speaks english, even though he understands it fluently. His travels with his personal assistant Akane who translates for him when needed. This does make negotiating directly with him sometimes problematic, luckily he is not your Johnson.

Akane, a Japanese human female, came on to the Seattle scene three years ago when Cowboy walked into a known shadowrunner hang out and recruited his first team. Before this there is no information on her, it was as if she never existed. She was not a known runner of asset in the shadows of anywhere that is known to runners in the Seattle area. Many rumors fly about ranging from her working for the Japanese government, far fetched, to she worked for Renraku as one of the fabled red samurai, plausible, but none of these rumors have ever been confirmed. She is always seen with a katana carried in her right hand and is known to be a physical adept of some power as she is known to be initiated. The weapon is rumored to be a weapon focus and she is not only Cowboys assistant but doubles as his personal bodyguard. They are rarely seen apart and even conference in to all calls together when dealing with runners. The two have a weird relationship that seems, up front, to be professional in nature but rumors have it they are involved, even though she seems to be half his age.

Akane can not be taken as a contact as she is only here for Cowboy.

Hah, Cowboy sounds awesome.  I dig it.  Pming you background stuff.

So, the more I work on my guy, the less of a Rigger he becomes.  Does anyone else wanna take the slot?  Cause I'm looking far more like a B&E specialist than anything.

I mean, at this point in his build, he's got a sneaking dice pool of nearly 20, and like 6 Flying Eye drones and can basically turn nearly invisible.  I'm definitely not the guy for disguises, but boy can I vanish!
