Shadowrun Online! [5th edition]
« on: November 07, 2014, 07:50:02 PM »

Are you ready to experience an all new way of existing, transcending the limits that the current gaming industry has to offer?  If you're an adventurer, a risk seeker, a viking ready to conquer a new and exciting land, than you have come to the right place!  We at Argus would like to announce the grand opening of the most anticipated game of the century; Shadowrun Online!  Maybe you're a fan of the old school table top game, the numerous fictional books, or even the games that have already been released;  or maybe you're new to the Shadowrun setting altogether, and want to become a part of history; whichever of these fits you the most, you'll find satisfaction joining our brand new Virtual Reality Massive Multiplayer RPG, Shadowrun Online. 

Thanks to our full dive technology, you'll be able to immerse yourself fully into the Shadowrun setting.  Create a character, a whole new personality, and live the life of an eco friendly Shaman, a fast fly by your pants Decker, an intimidating Street Samurai, or a number of other archetypes available for creation.  So what are you waiting for?  Head over to your nearest gaming retailer and purchase your own nerve ware and copy of Shadowrun Online today!





Alright folks, this is a crossover between Sword Art Online, and the 5th edition of Shadowrun.  The game's premise is that a new Virtual Reality MMORPG, based on the Shadowrun game, has been released.  The excitement stems not only from the fact that this is based on Shadowrun, or because it's an MMORPG, but because this is the first virtual reality MMORPG to ever be released.  A year of beta testing has already passed, and there is talk about how fun this game is.  The grand opening is beginning, and you will be creating a character who buys and dives into the game during said grand opening. 

At first everything seems peachy, it's fun, as has been promised, and you're excited to see how far you can get into this game.  Unfortunately for you, things don't go as smoothly as you had hoped, and you're forcibly transported into the games version of Seattle.  It's here that it's revealed that there is no way for you to log out, and if any outside forces try to disconnect you, you're body will die.  You're trapped here, in this man created world, until the games final mystery has been solved, if it can even be solved.  If you die within the game, you die in the real world, and dying is a very real possibility.  You have only a few choices, try to beat the game, try to live out whatever life you can in this dangerous world, or take your own life and end it all. 

In this game, you'll be a member of a team that tries to muck through the games mystery, fighting through 100 missions to get to the very end and save everyone who has been trapped.  This will follow the fifth edition rule book, but there will also be a sort of sandbox element for you to hash out personal stories. 

I'll be GM'ing, but this is my first foray into the setting and GM'ing system games in general, so please expect a few bumpy patches as I learn to smooth over any rough patches I may have.  One day out of the week, will be dedicated to the main missions.  During this time, there will be one thread for the mechanics, and one for narrative.  That day will be determined once we've gotten our cast of players, and we can determine which day and time slot will be the most convenient.  The rest of the week other threads will be available for you guys to write out post's for personal interactions that are outside of the main missions.  If situations that require my attention(fights,dangerous situations) occur during this time, I'll be available for that.  But for the most part the system will be used the majority of time for the main missions.

I'm looking for around 3 players, which might increase if I can get a co-gm.  But this isn't a first come first serve, so anyone is welcome to apply to join, and I'll pick the characters who fit best into this game.  All character archetypes are available for you to play, and you can be human or any other type of metahuman.    A character sheet will be up soon, so expect that.  I want players who at least know what both SAO and Shadowrun are, and who are willing to put in a little work in getting to know what both settings are about, and how to play the fifth edition of SR, if you aren't already familiar with it.  People who will be understanding that I'm new to this is a must!  We'll be using E's dice system exclusively.  As I'm new to this, those players who get chosen are more than encouraged to give me suggestions, or point out mistakes I might be making.  This game will be set in NC:Exotic systems.




You should use a real image, not a drawing or anime character for the real world part of your sheet, but you have more freedom of choice for the Shadowrun part.

I put in the intro post that a character sheet will be put up soon, but so far it's going to be a two parter.  A small bit for you put info about who your character is in the real world, and a more detailed bit for you to create your Shadowrun character.  Expect the more detailed part to be pretty darn close, if not exactly like a sheet you'd usually use for a Shadowrun game.  If you want to see what one would look like, here's one you can check out.  Click here

  *Waves*  I'm eager to give this a try.   I can watch a bit of sword art onliine if it'll help. i've got some familiarty with Shadowrun. 

  In game, I'd like to play a Mytic ADept, but I'm flexible.  :) 

  I'll choose a gender based on what else is in the ame.  I think if it's he, his name will be Mathew Kirk.  If I do a girl, her name will be J.T. Kirk.  :)

I have to admit, I was hoping you'd join Muse!  I think we've only been in one game together, but I'm not sure(?). 

I do suggest watching Sword Art Online.  Technically I'm only taking themes from it, for plot purposes, but it might help you paint a picture in your head of my intentions.  Plus I think it's entertaining, so I'm biased.  You can probably find it via a quick google search, but it's on Crunchyroll, if you're already familiar with that streaming site. 

Ooooooh, Mystic Adept sounds awesome!  I, obviously, have no problem with that.

Kirk :D  Both names rock!

So I know I'll probably end up regretting this, but count me in as interested. Probably something magical - I've never actually tried playing a Shadowrun spellcaster - either a shaman or a mage,depending on research.

So when we chose our priorities should we put nothing in the nuyen  or what since I take it most of us will be new players to the game.Cause I am sure none of us will be beaters or beta testers.

Doesn't seem like that would be very fair to the people who use augmentations, M.R.  Magically active characters are nice, but Shadowrun is still a world ripe with street samurai, razor girls, hackers, riggers, smugglers...

Yep but it still a question to ask cause you do not start out with that much money in a MMO usually.  Usually you just get some basic equipment and have to build yourself up. sometimes even the beta testers only get some minor boost and most have to work there way up.

I haven't configured a sheet for this game yet. But if you want to start filling something out just to work out what kind of character you want to play, you're more than welcome to put something together and post it here, so you can share your concept.

[hrd

As for money, I'm going to actually address that on the character sheet. I'm thinking that all characters will start off with a set amount of money. Maybe some archytypes will start off with more, since they'd need it to counter balance their character. I was also thinking of allowing slots for those who had been beta testers. But obviously, not everyone would be able to create one.

Maybe Shadowrun Online has a built-in microtransaction system, like every other game seems to these days? Having extra starting nuyen (because you assigned a higher OOC priority to Resources) is just a reflection that you spent more 'RL money' when creating your avatar.

That can work.  I think there will be a starting balance that you automatically get, but players would have been able to use real currency to purchase more nuyen when they created their character.  I mean, I never buy more currency in game until after I've tried it out for a while, but I can see some people doing that.  Especially since some people would already be familiar with the Shadowrun background, and would go in assuming they'd need more.
