I know what your intent was in giving those directions. I just could help asking it.

I know...

But you did raise a valid point that others may not realise that I was not making that an absolute requirement. For which I am grateful.

Thank you!

I'm glad my being a "Smart ass" could actually be helpful. But really once you and NW receive the PM how would you know if it had been done as you directed or not?

Still thinking about most details of MC but I'm sure I will be going the "Dirty Dozen" route. I mean really why else other than to avoid a death sentence would anybody volunteer to have their appearance changed so drastically? Let's see death or life as a monster, not really much of a choice.

Oh and I'm asking for the specialist spot of "Close combat". If one of the GMs wants that I will choose something else.

I don't know, I just a quick google search and saw quite a few rather hot ones all be it with more traditional orc type weapons than guns.

Although had it been E.L.V.E.S. you know I would have been all over that game.

Actually, there are quite a lot. And I've even found some decent ones with guns, by using the search keywords "Shadowrun orc"

I'm claiming this pic as my character's face!



I know her skin isn't particularly green - it's because of the lighting....

Oh and....

Maybe because they know they are loosing the war and if they loose it completely, it will mean an end to what little freedom they still have left to live as they choose? With nothing left to live for because their entire family was brutally executed by the enemy? A desire to finally hit back? Curiosity, wanting to understand what this new technology can do? Claustrophobia, unable to live in the confines of an underground bunker, even the envirosuit is too restrictive, this gives the chance to walk around stark naked on the surface without dying about ten seconds later!

Just a few possible motivations.

I'd rather not have the entire squad (of two) be convicts if at all possible...

I like the pic. I never thought searching with the keyword Shadowrun. It's been along time since I read any of the books or played the game and completely forgot there are orcs in that world. I'm gonna have to take another look. I might be changing my pic.

You make several valid points about why somebody would choose to be changed so drastically. I will have to think on it a bit more, might be changing the history that my muse has been working up. Maybe he was injured and the choice became life in a wheelchair or life as a monster. Just a thought though.

LOL! I actually did- and then for some brainless reason searched Pathfinder instead! Will try again, possibly tonight.


And oh, putting in a bid for Infiltration spec.

Sorry I thought I said. They are allies of the Northern Powers.

Okay timeline question. You say the war has been going on a long time but how long is that? Like if our character is in their early 20s would they have ever known a time without the war? Would they have grown up underground? Or would they remember a time when they were kids and it was actually okay to go outside?

I'd guess, since the war has been 'stalemated for decades', that no, it's been going on for near half a century or so

Might be helpful, at least inception, loss of criitcal cities, and length of current stalemate.
