OK  I'm looking for players, please if you want to play just make a character and post it or PM me. If you want to complain about the rules please stop posting everyone it's possible to build a character at 350pts, and limited gear availability, I KNOW I'VE DONE IT! so get over it. Stop complaining and offering advice I have a plan I know what I want to run your not helping, if you don't want to play don't. Other wise post a character, and save some time. I AM NOT CHANGING THE RULES ANYMORE!

The gear restriction is still too restrictive in my opinion, as to me it simply isn't fun for any restriction that is worse than base character creation rules in the core rulebook. The fun of different restriction levels comes in when what can be acquired and the number of BP is increased rather than decreased (at least fun for anyone other than the GM).

Well in order to get a game started I throw the gear rule as well now its basic character creation.

With this, I'll see about putting something together. How are you with the Magic stuff, as I haven't really messed with it much since SR3, and was considering going that route.

More thinking mage than adept, but may end up dropping the magic altogether since being dissatisfied with the builds is pretty much why I've stayed away from Magic for so long.

May consider mystic adept assuming you use SR4A rather than SR4 + FAQ since the latter pretty much makes mystic adept worthless.

I got the SR4A so that's the book I am using, still need to get my hands on street magic so if you use it I'm going to ask a lot of questions.

I pretty well have access to the vast majority of books taking into account, both mine and my roommate's SR book collections. At present, the only spell I've got listed that isn't in the core book is the Slow spell out of War!.

I'd like to join. I've only played Shadowrun once, but it was quite fun. I'm interested in playing an adept or magician (probably adept since there's already a magician app).

Working on a character to submit now.

Go for it, and I think that will make the team.

Ok everyone round out your characters any changes you want to make reworked gear or the like. I'd like to see backgrounds on them why they'd work the shadows if they have SINs excreta...

Alonzo Rivera remembers nothing before he awoke in the sewer one night. All sorts of information ran through his head, confusing him. Polaris č a nord. Смерть крышка имеет большое выше тела плодоношения землю шляпки от пяти до пятнадцати см в диаметре. Die Nase und Wangenknochen sind am schwersten zu verschleiern. Frightened and confused, he found a dark hole and hid until he was able to calm down. As time went on, he discovered impressive abilities and used them to survive in the complex and filthy depths. By the time he discovered the Overworld, he'd gathered some slight social skills from observing those few (meta)humans who went by, generally fleeing or hiding, and had taken a name from on of the three IDs he'd found on his person. That one was soon disposed of in the process of learning about law enforcement, but since then he's become a rather efficient mercenary, if an unusually short one who enjoys rat meat.

Short and stocky like most dwarves, Alonzo's wide shoulders belie his quick movements. He has a short black moustache and goatee and his hair is rarely longer than shoulder-length. His eyes are constantly darting back and forth, even during a conversation, and he seems to shrink to an even smaller size when near strangers. He tends to long periods of absolute stillness punctuated by short, quick movements.

My mage is rather simple. She was--for most of her life--living in Japan and learning to use her Awakened abilities while living with her parents. She came to Seattle to find her cousin whom she hadn't heard from since the Arcology incident (the character I'm playing in cabo_setek's PbP game), and ended up deciding to give the Shadows a shot after learning just how useful most runner teams consider a mage/shaman.

I'm still working on tweaking the character sheet, but I have gotten the knowledge skills pinned down at this point (I had to find her old SR3 character sheet so I could get the right ones).
