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.

Here is an orc! She are approved! RAWR! :D

Player ID: RedPhoenix

Name: Iris Stendahl

Gender: Female

Human height: 165 cm
Human weight: 54 kg

ORC height: 180 cm
ORC weight: 72 kg

Nationality: Sweden

Rank: Corporal, Särskilda operationsgruppen

Specialisation: Sniper

Strengths: Aim, Camouflage, Skirmishes, Wilderness Survival

Weaknesses: Computers, Diplomacy, Heavy Weapons, Leadership, Large Scale Fights, Tactics and Strategy

Personality: Iris is a follower and likes being part of a team. She doesn't question orders and feels very happy when she completes her duties successfully. She loves killing from a distance, and thinks the perfect kill is one where the enemy is dead before the sound of the bullet reaches him, and she's gone before his friends figure out where the shot came from. She has completely dehumanized her enemy, thanks to years of hearing of them as less than human and fighting them in the course of her duties. She doesn't like complicating things with prisoners, negotiations, or moralizing and prefers to just wipe out everything her team finds and move on. She gets oddly nostalgic for the Swedish forests that she saw in old movies growing up, and she likes being an ORC because she prefers to be outdoors. She likes quiet, and although she doesn't mind company, she does mind excessive conversation.

History: Iris is the only daughter of a Swedish family who are descendants of the people that owned the copyrights on the underground bunkers that the population moved into when the air became unhealthy, and were paid to oversee the construction of many more. As such her family is wealthy beyond words, but they live in a world where money means little as it can't buy peace, can't buy security, and can't buy an outdoors that is safe to walk in. Her family was bitter about this, and raised Iris to hate and despise the enemy as they pined for the beautiful outdoors that was ruined and lost to them.

Iris joined the military out of a sense of civic duty, her parents never outright pushed her to but the way they raised her played a large part in her decision making. She found the armed forces oddly relaxing, having someone tell her what to do all the time took the weight of decisions off of her shoulders and she had been a quiet girl growing up, a bit out of place with other kids due to everyone knowing how family her rich was, and never really had friends before the army.

She proved to be an expert shot and her good service record saw her promoted fairly quickly. She was stationed in the Pyrenees, where she made quite name for herself sniping off her counterparts on the other side of the de facto borders. She didn't perform very well as part of large scale engagements, but racked up an incredible kill count when placed in supposedly quieter areas of the borders.

She volunteered for the treatment because she hated the equipment that she had to wear to fight outside and wanted to be able to breathe freely. She also felt that it would make her a part of an elite unit and her sense of belonging and camaraderie would increase. She didn't feel much hesitation about potentially losing her classic swedish blonde good looks, as she didn't place much value on it and the first place and her love life wasn't exactly anything to write home about. Her parents were rather proud that she volunteered, and she looks forward to taking the fight to the enemy and increasing her kill count even further.

Other: Nothing. :)
