Woohoo, off work so I can lurk in this thread. The good thing is I have most, almost all of Hanna's background done, as well as her appearance. Now I just have to finish her gear and wor on her skills and such.                                                                                         Are we factoring luck into our skills thingy, or is that more of a dice rolling thing that we don't need?

Updated photo for Scarlet. 

The two idea's I have partly written up are...

A female troll (though she is the runt of the little compared to trolls. Rumors of who her real father could be are still up in the air.) She is straight up brawler with some driving skills, that works and is friends with the females in the before mentioned mechanic/racing shop. She has several older brothers so if anyone wants to be one just ask. Scarlet is bold, brash, not afraid of anything, a bit of a drunk...and a horn dog. :P What woman can be them too. LOLZ  Protective of those she cares about and takes care of the local street kids. Still working out more details with them at the moment. Looking for all sorts of links beyond brothers just ask. :)
Scarlett, Thanks to Josi for editing!


And the second is human female with the Vory faction( if that is allowed to be apart of one of the gangs already?) Or at least linked to a family within that organization. She is a hacker/performer/free runner, a bit of a recluse due to her line of work and her shy nature.  Good at getting what is needed and getting out of dodge, grew up being a messenger/hacker and learned from some of the best. She has a secret life as a performer, though no one knows it is her as it is all down with  Holo-projectors or a virtual person programed as her alter ego Runa LeCross. It is her outlet and way of expression. Looking for family, friends that know more about her,manager, fellow runners, possible even romance...OH MY.
Elena (maybe still thinking on her name)


 Anyway have some idea's, or want to work out some links. Feel free to PM me, as things get lost in the OOC specially when you know....sleep. LOL Ok yes sleep for me and I will again work on finishing my sheets tomorrow.

Undisclosedtoyou Pm coming your way shortly. And yes she speaks Russian. :)

Would a laser sight on a crossbow add +1 to the user's Archery rating?

Barring any objections from Lunar, I'm going to say yes, since the laser would effectively be performing the same function on a crossbow as it would on a firearm.

Lunar?

I suppose a laser sight could be calibrated to take into account slower moving projectiles like bolts.

Just an FYI in general though... x8 is the best possible skill and ability combination one can attain, whether that comes with the help of laser sights or smartlinks or not.  In other words, someone with Agile x4 and Firearms x4 would get no added benefit from any sort of firearms enhancement.  At that point you're so good that things like laser sights and smartlinks do nothing for you.

Also, one can assume in the RP that your Agile plus any cover you may have can protect you from incoming projectiles like bullets.  Just work with each other or the GMs in that case and a 'victor' can be worked out by comparing stats and the scene as written.  Just like Agile and Unarmed or Melee work as a 'to hit', they can also work defensively, assuming they are defending against a non ranged attack.

SIMPLE TERMS:  Agile levels are always used to attack and defend, along with appropriate skills.  Use the 'stats' to aid in the RP, but in general don't let them get in the way of doing cool stuff against NPCs.

Well, it's a good thing I can get that sight then, because I have no Agile, and no combat skills. Strong Like Bull, but completely inept when it comes to landing any blows. Hopefully I can talk my way out of any sticky situations, and you'll never catch me going into a combat zone.

I don't see your bio in the char thread Josi, so no. But going off the others that are there, looks like what I usually tend to roll with will work.

There's also a thread here that has some shadowrun-esque pictures if you'd like to look through them... and if anyone finds anymore that you think might make good shadowrun pictures, please post them there.

It can be tough to find live action images of elves, orks and trolls that aren't medieval style.

I'm finding a lot of images on Deviantart, a lot of good ones. 

Ooooh Lunar and Corvus!  I found a reference to a seattle sourcebook, as well as a Berlin sourcebook, which will help me more with my characters backstory, than this game.  Are you using the Seattle sourcebook, by any chance?  I only ask, because I want to know if it's as awesome as it sounds.

Link them in the Shadowrun image thread so others may enjoy them and maybe find a face for their character.

We're using the Corebook, or Player's Handbook which is based on Seattle. Can you be more specific as to which books and what information from those books?

It's this book. let me know if it's the same one you're using.  Link -->  Here

It was announced in May of last year, that the newest Shadowrunner Sourcebook will be based on Berlin.  Here's an article about it, although it's not very in depth.  Here.

Well, we're not using any other sourcebooks for gear, equipment, cyber, magic, etc... but if you're just looking to draw some background information from it for your character who's from Berlin or surrounding areas, I don't see a problem with that.

If Lunar signs off on it, you've got the green light with me. We'll check what you have in your character sheet when you submit it and if there's a problem with it, we'll let you know.

Yeah, I'm basically using the German sourcebook for just background, info that may help with the cultural aspect of my Hanna.  I won't be using anything else from it, so no worries with that.  As for the Berlin sourcebook, I can't wait until it comes out!  I want to get my greedy little hands on it, and soak it up.  Hanna and Her partner are from Berlin, so hopefully more cultural background will come from it.  I'm hoping it'll have more info on the Russian aspect of Berlin, as well as it's seedy underbelly.

So Sis is new in town but if anyone wants to have run into her in the past month or so, shoot me a PM! She waitresses at the Saloon so if any of your characters would be regulars there, they could have met. She's an elf and a shaman and not exactly shy ;)

Lunar quote: "Seattle sourcebook is mainly for mob bosses and stuff like that. We're not using those we have our own custom ones. We're not using a lot of those NPCs rather. So in short the only book you should be using for character creation is the main book. You can use some of the Seattle Sourcebook locations for a better layout of the city (but not everyone has access to that), for your backstory only. We are not using other books because not everyone can get them or use them. We are sticking strictly to the Main Corebook for the most part."
