We can add Location/Content tags if people want, but I've never found them useful. Mostly they just say 'With Everyone Else/Doing what Everyone is Doing'. Maybe if the party splits up a lot they're useful?
They are, at least for the Location tag. IDK, it's just my inner record-keeper poking my noggin.

Alright, because I cannot leave well enough alone, here's this:

The longform one is used in combat and tracks Stress and Minor Consequences. The shortform one just tracks Moderate and Major Consequences, since they stick around a while.

Since the longform one is long and unwieldy to type around, use the shortform unless in combat.

I've yet to really consider how long Mark has been with Firewall, though he's been on at least three missions with them before the game begins. For the point of causing links with others, one mission had them do infiltration to gain intel from a specific server. Unfortunately this server was guarded and Mark was caught, but helped out by his team-mates. The second mission he was in of note involved a barroom brawl and when fists got thrown, the slightly naive Mark pulled out his gun and got some shots out... He was later brought back from backup when his morph got totalled. Final mission had him come across a potential X-risk black box on a transport. Without thinking he got his access jacks out and hacked it down then and there, even with the risk of nano-infection, it was the one thing he knew he could do.

Renrakubrug! IC, Mark is an Out'ster and just happens to spend his time in a pod on the brug. Noone really pays him any notice being a second class citizen with few connections, even with his curious nature. Lifestyle was as mentioned before, he has real basic stuff to keep his pod rolling along, though he mainly jumps ship and hangs in servers and simulspaces in his spare time.

I imagine Hachi has worked with Firewall for at least a few years now, probably several.  Her unswayable loyalty is likely well known at this point, and they might have loaned her a Reaper a handful of times for suicide missions.  (Her personal preference is for biomorphs, but she doesn't object to anyone else using whatever they want.)

Even though personal tasks might take her to alternate ends of the transhuman spectrum, her fidelity to transhumanity itself is unshakable, so missions that keep everyone safe from the horrors outside would no doubt be big for her.

I'll probably go with currently having a large apartment, preferably in NQ but I'm good with whatever.  Travelling is simple: bodyguards have to move around to wherever the people are who want to hire them.

As for commuting, I'm considering that Mark may have some autonomist contacts in Mars he can get a lift from, for a later favour owed. Maybe a potential NPC that can get involved later down the road? I don't see him as really being the type to have many credits on him for consistent paid communing between locales... Though perhaps his higher Eye-Rep represents some way they sort it out for him?

I always wondered how Eye-Rep would work past Networking. The networking represents finding the contact and rep points usually showed how big a favour you can get... But does Firewall seem to be the type to let their agents owe them favours to begin with?

Honestly, since he's usually in the mesh, he could probably save creds by spending most of his time as an infomorph on a database in Renrakubrug, and keep his physical form in a vat in new Shanghai. Then, he can just egocast himself into his biomorph body whenever he's needed for a mission.

That's one option, at least.

Odd question: does someone have to have a ghostrider module for infomorphs on the TacNet to see what's going on?

Nope! An infomorph can be saved on practically anything- even a flimsy ecto. However, if their storage gets borked they die. Ghostrider modules just allows infomorphs to keep themselves loaded in another player's head, like an extra cortical stack. It helps them respond to situations quicker, though if the owner of the Ghostrider module is borked, they'll be borked too.

Jane could probably get a Ghostrider module installed on her Battlesuit, with enough creds and assurances it'll work independently from the suits other systems.

Edit:And soon, Jane began collecting a Battlesuit cult. With an Octi-wielding octopus turret on its shoulder, an onboard infomorph on mesh security detail, a trained mechanic on standby, and Jane herself piloting the vehicle, the entire team dedicated themselves to the care and continuation of the blessed Battlesuit. In suit they trust, for trust they must.

If you have a problem, if nobody else can help you, and if you can find them maybe you can hire the A-Team...

Eye Rep more closely represents how well you know Firewall and how much Firewall trusts/respects you. It's mostly used to gain access to Firewall's extremely limited, valuable and secret assets. It's gained by doing the opposite of fucking things up.

Good option... Something to consider there.

Forklift's indenture contract is newly purchased by Firewall/Hachi so the mechanic hasn't even run a mission for them yet.

Living wise I'd say Forklift lives in the Souk around Little Shanghai. She's got a small hanger like facility she uses for maintenance on larger machines as well as cleaning and repairing the salvage she digs up. Most likely it's all paid for by Forklift doing free work fixing up the facilities the hanger owner also has.

Job wise there's maintenance work, escort services, and long trips out gathering various junk parts that she fixes up. Forklift also frequently heads to the edge of the Titan quarantine zone and just stares into it for a few hours. All of which give plenty of reasons for travel and longtime absences.

Bonus points if you can tell me your relationship with the organization, but right now all I need is how long you've been with them.

I'll say Anima has been with Firewall for 1-2 years in her sort of probationary status (a support contact for other Firewall Agents that need medical aid).  She'll likely have only recently been accepted to the level of Sentinel for the purpose of doing field missions.

She operates out of a small shop (that she also lives in) in Little Shanghai.  She explains having to travel because sometimes she makes house calls, obviously.

If you want, try giving Fate Accelerated Edition a look. It's a simplified version of FATE that covers the core rules/ideas of FATE.

Watch out for Basilisk Hack Memes!!!  :D

Seeing as everyone is going to Shanghai, I guess I can have Mark there too as well, or at least his Pod.

Thats a question for our GM; I have Mark as to be pretty much sleeved in his Pod, however it suits his background to be freely dallying round the Mesh... Would I have to pay a Refresh to have him as an Infomorph and his Pod as a second morph? I'm lax to give out another Refresh so if I would, he'll be fully sleeved and do most his stuff through AR/VR entropics to avoid that.

If you want to have both pod-him and infomorph-him acting/contributing at the same time, then you gotta pay. If you just wanna alternate between the two, then you probably won't have to.

In general, FATE is effect based, not origin based. You pay to do something instead of paying how to do it. In this case, you're buying the ability to be in two places at once. If you're not going to be in two places at once, you don't gotta pay.

This can get fuzzy if pod-you is a fork and informorph-you is running around doing non-Firewall stuff. In that case... eh, pay a Fate Point/Refresh when you have two yous contributing.

I don't see Hachi doing much in the way of forking, but it's very easy to imagine going infomorph if her Fury is destroyed until she can get another.

It also wouldn't make a lot of sense for Hachi to carry around ghostrider stuff for people, since she could end up incapacitated and then that person is out of luck.

Gotcha... Thanks. :)

Interesting how Forking will work then... Can we assume that with the trading of Stunts, that basically our Refresh is fluid and can be traded in and out dependant on situation? The way EP works and how the playtest doc is written seems to support that as a playstyle.

Also a Ghostrider is really only useful if someone goes Infomorph, none of us have though I flirt with the idea of hopping out of Mark's Pod every now and then, though he'll be returning to it whenever he's done whatever he has to. From the outside perspective it's gonna look like Mark's Pod is disociating when he goes full Info.

Hm, I'm highly thinking he needs someone on the team he can trust for his Pod to be stationed with when he's off on the Mesh in his spare-time... Anyone maybe have links to a Martian Bodybank for the Pod to be kept in a vat when not in use?
