Wiseguys (Shadowrun 3rd)
« on: June 24, 2007, 08:13:50 AM »
I've got a hankering to run a third edition shadowrun game based on a Mafia family.  The characters would be either wiseguys and/or mercenaries.  Anyone interested?

Edit: Oh yeah, this would be a normal game.

Thanks to the Shadowrun Xbox 360 game... I'd be interested as well.

Not as much interested in the mafia side par-say.. but I'll sign up for the whole mercenary side.. one who has ties to the mafia but not an actual family member.. just someone trusted enough to be called in when something needs to be done and not directly attached to the family.

I'm open for all archtypes..although I've typically played a Rigger in the past.

Is this Rules heavy or rules lite?

Sign me up!  Probably as a merc-type, but I'm flexible.

Haven't figured out how rules intensive I intend to be just yet.

Also, there's room for a regular merc game if that's more of people's interest.

I love Shadowrun 3rd edition. 

I'd be interested either in a mob game or a merc game (or some mix of the two)

I <3 Shadowrun. And 3rd ed is all I got!

Too bad it's a normal game. : \ Where's all the fun in running shadows, shooting up things, getting the big haul, and cybering up yourself into robocop?


.... oh yeah... :D 

My only thing is, I've had an idea for a new race that follows the elf template for racials but my RL friends won't let me do it.

I think because it is in essense a furry..

There ought to be rules for it (SURGE) in Year of the Comet, but that only applies if the game is set in 2063 or later.

Well, it's not up to me whether it's useable or not.  The game would have to be set in 2063, and the GM would have to approve the concept.

Year of the Comet is a sourcebook about the year 2063, where Haley's Comet comes around and all sorts of weirdness happens (either because of it or alongside it).  One such thing is SURGE (Sudden Unexplained Recessive Genetic Expression) which, from a metagame point of view, is basically a way to include some furry and anime tropes in the game.  Most of it is (IMHO) junk, but hey, I can't say no to catgirls.

Well my idea was actually a Corp Genetic experiment that got loose.

But I will look up the Year of the Comet!

Since it's in the normal section, how about a dwarf guy, mechanic by day, but his real job is an adept who specializes in countering and even assasinating magicians?

YotC does have it's moments but this isn't going to be one of them, sorry.  If the game actually gets off the ground it'll be starting in early August of 2060 (right in time for the second mob war).  Assuming that there's at least four interested personages, it'll be standard build rules.

You can come fairly close to a furry using bioware if memory serves, though....

I'm guessing that no one is really interested because I haven't gotten anything yet?

Since I forgot to mention (bad Hunter!) it's either priority or 120 point build.
