Shadowrun: Lowland terrors
« on: October 08, 2017, 11:40:30 am »
In 2048 the Republic of Scotland declared independence from the United Kingdom. The economic disaster of the crash of 29, followed by a pro-england government in London had turned most of what was left of the small country resentful. After the independence, the new government decides to run a low taxcorporate haven. This combined with a very concentrated population within the central belt, makes Scotland very interesting to major corporations. By 2075 every major corporation has at least some holdings in Scotland. Even the normally reclusive Aztechnology has a small plant on the east coast.

95 percent of Scotland's 9 million population lives within the central belt, as most of the North was irradiated in the Dounraey disaster, and most of the hebrides are affected by the effects of the leylinecrossing, making it home to some of the most dangerous wildlife on the planet. The high concentration of people, combined with the prevalence of corporate holding makes the Central Belt an area rife with the criminal elements. Small bubbles of corporate territory, and enclaves of Knight errant patrolled communities are surrounded by a dangerous, wild megacity, where gangs vie for control. This makes the Belt a prime ground for Shadowrunners, and there are quite a few making their living here.



My idea is to make a Shadowrunner game set in the Central Belt of Scotland in 2075. The game revolves around a group of experienced Runners who get sucked into a large corporate war that will threaten their lives and those of everyone in Scotland, or even the world.

For applications, please do not send me full sheets as I will use a very different way of character creation. Instead, write the following:

A character name
An image or description: (Extra points for real pics instead of drawings/renderings :P)
What draws you to this game: (Not a whole story, a few lines will suffice)
What kinks you want to explore: (Sex is not a major focus, but it might become side plot)
Any definite nopes you have:(see above)
Why should I pick you: (3-5 lines of text)

I know this may seem a bit pretentious, but I'm more concerned with getting players who want the same out of the game, than cool characters that will just end up leaving because of OoC friction.


I'm also looking for one person to play a slightly different role. An innocent if you will. A character that lived all of her life inside the system, knows little about shadowrunners apart from what's on the news. Someone in for an earth shattering discovery.

If you want to play that role, please contact me via PM, not here.

Name: Sariteen, 'Sixer'
I'm drawn to this because I'd like to explore the Scottish universe of Shadowrun. I've never played nor read about the European environments so it will be a treat to explore somewhere new. And I do have a terrible weakness for the accents... I'd like to know more about the style of game you'd like to run. Your introduction is very vague on that aspect... But a corporate war sounds like a lot of opportunity to play corps together and try to work for several sides whilst trying to maintain a conscience... A lot of creative thinking and emotional opportunities.

Kinks For kinks, I'm an open book. I don't enjoy pee, poop & I can get dizzy over gore. But I love seductive dominance, sexy uniforms/disguises, awkward moments when runners are trapped together with banter and innuendo... I enjoy different races and as always, fall hard for dangerous women and love to toy with cute boys. It's kinda hard to say anything about kinks as I enjoy most of them and well, this premise has so sexual elements to it... So I'm not really sure what's on offer? But I'd like to say some smexy scenes shared atop fast bikes, fun caught in between awkward moments of a run and having dinner with the sexiest enemies you can craft would come to mind... Along with a few terrible reasons to get all dressed up for a run/disguise/deal/bet and do a silly something "I wish I could Forget" do all come to mind.

Why should you pick me: I'm still a bit green with Shadowrun so I'll bring that rare innocence of a player who doesn't always know better to a character who might not either... I really want to try a BladeBunny for the first time. I do enjoy the quiet moments and playing with sensory details. I love to offer visuals with my posts and well, I have a knack for making light of doors you didn't realize you'd drawn. It tends to draw parties down unexpected plots and side conversations where interesting new thoughts emerge. Helps add life to a story and kickstarts people's imaginations...

Did you want to know about my character at all? Or is the Name sufficient?

   Anonymous Web Blog: The Ouroboros Bites It’s Tail

   I’m not going to tell you who I am.  If you need to know you already do. 
   I’m not going to barrage you with street jargon to give myself legitimacy.  That stuff is all over the net. 
   I’m going to talk about snakes. 
   They’re an old symbol lodged deep in metahumanity’s collective mythology reminding us that every life form exists by feeding upon something else alive.  We have existed their way, in a sort of brutal harmony, since millennia before man first descended from the trees.
   But man isn’t a harmonious animal.  The same intelligence that makes a slow, thin skinned hominid with neither claws nor fangs an apex predator allows us to break that harmony. 
   Many ancient cultures understood this well enough to predict that our own hungers might consume us.  When the ancient Norse spoke of the end of the world they described the Midgard Serpent, a monster who—in its insatiable hunger would devour all the world and then—with nothing else to devour—swallow itself. 
   The image of the snake biting its tail has other meanings.  The Ouroborous is a purer representative of the serpent, an ancient alchemical symbol of renewal and resurrection on par with the fiery phoenix that is reborn from the ashes of its own funeral pyre. 
   Hunger is natural.  The Midgaurd Serpent is not a force for annihilation because it defies nature, but because it exercises it’s prerogatives from a position of vastly unequal power.  Neither gods nor giants can reign it in, much less vanquish it. 
   Today, in the 52nd year of the sixth world, a dozen Midgard Serpents threaten to devour us all.  Their mass media devours our dreams.  Their frivolous products devour our resources.  Their unchecked pollution devours our environment. 
   We sleep while they nibble at our toes. 
   Unlike the Midgard Serpent, these apex predators—whom neither gods nor giants can challenge—war ceaselessly with one another. 
   I am a shadowruner.  I am a fang of the Ouroborus.  Sleep in peace, little snakes, you need not rise up against your oppressors this night.  They will bite their own tails. 


   Cassanra Kiesling, known on the streets as Fang of the Ouroborus (or just Fang) is the daughter of a professor of the arcane arts who was abducted by corporate agents with an unknown agenda.  Hoping to find him, Fang used her magical abilities to become a Runner. 

What draws you to this game:  Honestly, there's not a lot of shadowrun on E right now--in facto, of the group games I'm aware of currently running, I'm running both of them.  You also caught my attention wtih a few things: 
--The implication that the game might be a bit more John Woo and a just a tad bit less constant legwork. 
--The magic rich enviorment, including the many ley lines and paracriters.  (If you prefer her to fang, I may play a pixie instead.) 

What kinks you want to explore:  I'm very open with my kinks.  Fang can be inocent and virginal or sexualy mature and confident depending on how I play her
 On top of all th eusual good stuff--especialy seduction and gentler non-con, I like to explore the effects of VR and AR on relationships--especialy sexual ones.  (In my stories there's a Virtual Reality MMO H-Game called Amazons and Athenians, that features a strong 'boys vs girls' PVP. 

Any definite nopes you have:  Not many!  And even fewer when my character is a girl. 

Why should I pick you:  I hope that the unsolicited blog entery above might have been enoguh to catch your attetnion.  : )

Okay, let's try out.

Name: Camil, Camelia, (other flower names)
What draws you to this game: Ran SR a few times recently, feel like not running, in the smallest of nut shells.
What kinks you want to explore: Let's go with Body Control, and possibly what bad ideas that can be. Even it's likely to be limited to an arm or strange things with personafixes.
Any definite nopes you have: Emesis, scat, and water sports.
Why should I pick you: (3-5 lines of text) Well, I've got a fair grasp of the system and history, including the nightmare that is AI in 5e. I don't have a good equivalent to mention for the history, especially for Scotland, sorry.  I've also wanted to play around with the matrix recently, although preferably not as an AI, and know ways to do it quick-ish. Also I want to do some describing across other people.

Tonight after work I'll throw up a song. I've decided I want to try a Runner who moonlights as a singer. It's been ages since I've gotten to write some cyber punk music!

Skull Devil
An image or description:
picture
Usually his clothing is all black with orange accents, typically consisting of biker's armor.
What draws you to this game: I haven't played Shadowrun since 3rd edition; haven't really found anyone wanting to run it, or the games fall apart before they can get beyond the first or second session. I love the world, the culture, and have a bit of a 'sweet tooth' for it; Shadowrun is pretty much the only form of science fiction I'll consume.

 
What kinks you want to explore: Bondage, light BDSM
Any definite nopes you have: Heavy gore (If he's losing a limb, makes sense he can replace it, but I'd rather a fade to black scene than paragraphs of gore porn), scat/watersports.

Why should I pick you: The Chrome doesn't pay for itself. I need to keep hacking away at the flesh, and putting in more metal. At first, it was just some functional things, you know; bad eyes got swapped out for nifty new ones. I lost a few fingers in a sword fight, so I got a prosthetic. But then I realized I could have my legs chopped off, and do all sorts of super-cool drek... just like my bike, I need to push it to the limit, I need to see how far and how fast this can go; how far and fast I can go. And if somebody's too slow, if they're in my way? Sorry, chummer; better luck next time.

And yeah, maybe I used to be a Halloweener gang. What's it to ya? People change, chummer. Why do you think I came all the way out here to get away from 'em?

A character name Andre Phillipe DuBois aka 'Pepper'
An image or description:

Pepper can fit with high society or blue collar doc workers.  He speaks several languages and got his start translating conversations between sailors and prostitutes in Paris.  Forced to leave due to circumstances beyond his control, his boat carried him to Scotland.  Now he is part time street doc, part time shadowrunner and full time Skunk shaman.

What draws you to this game: I'm a Shadowrun fan from 1st Edition and I've been itching to play a decent rp game of it on line.  I'm usually too late to get in or the game collapses from lack of posting, so I want to see if things are different this time around
What kinks you want to explore: Andre is a sensualist into slow sensuous lovemaking.  He's a chiropractor and massage therapist (can't get his medical license) so he knows where to touch.  He likes sex on the beach, sex on a boat.  He's French and so good sex, good food and good wine are required for a good life.  Add in a little sailing and he's a happy man.  Very much into pleasing his partner, as any good gentleman should.
Any definite nopes you have:He's heterosexual but not homophobic and he thinks anything you might find in a bathroom (except the shower) doesn't belong in the bedroom.

Why you should pick me: I know the system and don't need to be coached and I can help others get their characters together.  Shadowrun has a unique flavour and that needs to be understood.  It isn't cyberpunk.  I post frequently and I don't need to be the centre of the story in order to feel included.  The story is far more important than any one player but it needs to be remembered that without players there is no game.  The closest I've come to a game set in the British Isles is Celtic Double Cross and I'd like to see what a good GM can come up with.

Also...


PLEASE!!!!!1!!! PICK ME!!!1!!

Apologies...but I seem to not be seeing which Edition of ShadowRun this is?

That to a degree determines if I'm willing to play. (I'm not the biggest fan of 5e, I thought they did a few things like making taking cover a declared action and such a bit....rough. I love 4e though)

I hope its not to late to throw in an application


A character name: Runner name: Misty Shadowbane


What draws you to this game: Well this  seemed to be a perfect place to bring my Magic wielding  Fixer/runner Concept. She might need some tweaking as  she was made with prime runner rules but I loved the concept and it was fun being a source for jobs on the team and going on the runs her self. A very hands on headhunter for promising  runner talent to get her contacts work done. She handled impersonation and infiltration as her specialties. So i think this concept would thrive in a megacorp war like scenario! This character was from a  campaign that fell apart. Somethings about this character would need to be discussed in pm. So If  you would be okay with a pm  Sinless about them that would be great!

What kinks you want to explore:

On's: bondage(Strait jackets, Arm-binders,ropes leather straps are favorites but  up for others), tickling, Bondage in clothing, Escape artist games, Self bondage,Sensory Deprivation and Foot fetish(Tickling, pedicures(Sometimes enforced by those who are having there way with her way).

Offs: Gore,piss play, Scat,water sports, and toilet play. I you don't see it listed please ask if i would be comfortable with it the worst I say is no.

Why should I pick you: Well, I have an okay knowledge of 5th edition and 3rd edition was the next I was the most familiar with. I enjoy bringing characters that help the party and bring some good rp and sub plots to the game. I love working with others to tell a good story and go on challenging jobs and  building the rapport and teamwork.
