My interest has been claimed. I like to play Mages or Hackers. Are you planning on running us through premade scenarios mostly than? Anything in specific you're looking for from the characters, like a shared past, professional reputation for getting jobs done quietly, every character a grizzled combat veteran who can slug it out with the best of them, a minimum number of contacts for every player, that kind of thing?
The premade scenarios I have are geared for characters who are just beginning their Shadow Running careers. They've never been on a job before and it's only because they're unknowns that they even got the job. Basically, one morning around 1030, they get a phone call from a friend of a friend to show up at a sports bar in downtown Seattle for a quick job. No real details, take it or leave it. You have no contacts yet, not even a fixer.
I've been very interested in playing in a setting like this. I am completely unfamiliar with the rules and would need guidance to get started and be up to speed on how it works.
What section would this game take place in?
The game will take place in and around Seattle, UCAS. For those needing rules, there's the Quick-Start Rules pdf
that'll cover the basic rules and the more detailed stuff will be done on my end. Also you might want to pick up a copy of Chummer
as it helps in character creation.
SR4e! My interest is spiked, I've got a handful of character types that I could use...and I bring to the table a knowledge of the rules and such, so Linna, if you want any help...
I will probably rely on you quite a bit since I'm still getting up to speed on the rules once more.
I would love to play, please.
I've played a few times--mostly tabletop--and enjoyed fourth edition. The differences to the matrix will surely make some work for the conversion, but it still sounds exciting.
I have a conversion table for moving characters over. Still figuring out the differences between 3e and 4e when it comes to the Matrix.
I've been hankering for a SR game for years. I just have 2 problems...
I know next to nothing about SR 4E. I have a partial rulebook, so if someone could give me a hand on character creation... great.
2. I'm blind. Doesn't effect my posting, but pics are out of my ability range...
and lastly, anyone got a problem with a sniper type? If there is still space, consider me interested.
The character generation can be done with the aid of Chummer
, and I'll go ahead and specify how to set it up. It's a .zip file that you download to a folder of your choice and then run. Before starting a new character, go to Tools > Options, and there will be a long list with lots of little check boxes. Make sure you check four additional source books: Arsenal, Augmentation, Street Magic, and Unwired. Those are the four books we'll be using. As far as character specifics go, you will be limited to 300 Build Points and a maximum availability of 6. I think that's about right for characters starting their careers.
You asked about a sniper. You can play a sniper but I'll be honest, you're going to be more useful as a Street Samurai or something along those lines. I'm not going to tell you how to play your character, but if you want to be a former sniper in the Army that's certainly possible, just be aware that if you limit yourself to sniper rifles, you're going to have a hell of a time being useful when it's up close and personal. Of course, checking Chummer's files, there's not a single sniper rifle under 10F, and being seen with one in public will get you a nice quick chat with a Lone Star Officer or dozen.
As far as future characters go, I would like to limit it to just the peeps I've got so far as long as you build your characters. 5 or so seems like a good number. One thing I would like to point out is that while sex can take place in this game, please remember that the goal is to do things to earn money and what not. While you can certainly visit a strip club every night once you're paid, remember that I will be marking your expenditures on your sheets and when you go to buy that pretty new pistol, don't come bitching when I remind you that the down payment on it was left in a stripper's panties the night before.
Also, and while I don't mean to go off on a tangent, please be aware that I have a standing rule on any games I GM for: Stupidity gets punished. We all have our moments of stupid, me more so than others, but that does not mean you can just erase the dumb stuff that you do. If you need an example of how NOT to act, please read The Clue Files
. If you're still alive after laughing so hard you can't breathe, please take a moment and consider how your actions will be perceived. It may make perfect sense to tackle someone but if you're out in public on a busy street, you can bet Lone Star will either see it or hear about it soon enough. Sometimes it's better to have a bit of patience and wait till they're in a secluded alley before deciding his liver could use some fresh air.
So if you're still with me and willing to stick with it, I'm more than happy to run a game for you guys.
