um not sure which edition I have 5th but can get the others if need be. runners would be good but I would take anything Shadowrun at this point. I have never played so I'm kinda a newbie to this

The (other system) proposal I was writing up has kinda stalled in my head, so how about I toss in an idea and offer for three.

| Sometimes, life decides to kick you in the ass so hard, you should be Dead and never saw it coming. Like what happened last night, at least as far as everyone remembers. It was a relatively small bit of celebration, in a bar so cheap that everyone knew the beer names were fakes. Some dirty looking guy has a heart-attack, and nobody really thinks about it twice until some scavengers start picking at the guy's things.

With a little bit of paranoia and a lot of better than human sight, somebody probably would have definitely noticed that it wasn't a cheap Doc Wagon band, but an expensive Medico Del Infierno monitoring band. MDI being one of the only corps incidentally troublesome enough that people in the Dallas shadows made a meme out of wishing for the Azzies to take it over.

In this case, as the grenades and lead flew, it seemed like the last night of celebration for the whole place. For you, at least, it wasn't. Dr. Gutspiele has been a bit coy about how many actually survived, probably because of the rep the good doctor had in the shadows before suddenly disappearing; brilliant, willing to take credit, obsessed with a horror movie aesthetic, and best buddies with some crime lord that ran more than a few bunraku joints (which boss changed with the rumor teller).

Most agreed that it was probably Don Pavo who died shortly before the doctor disappeared.

The doctor gives out some news, a little good, a lot bad. The bad is that your old identities are basically dead, the person funding this really wanted everyone that survived chipped up and earning money until they broke, and your genetics are going to be used as blackmail if you try to run. The good is that the Gutspiele managed to argue for a few people to be used as runners, and so while there's still a lot of cosmetic work done it isn't the doctor's horror monster look or cheap bunraku puppet. (Which is another bit of pressure.)

Of course, neither one really being the Johnson type, the doctor managed to negotiate a little more freedom for the group. So, says the doctor, don't flee, pay your percentages, and in due time, you'll all go free.

Equally of course, you-all could find out who's behind this and do some gunboat diplomacy of your own.

I should probably add in that of the currently supported stuff I prefer 5e. 4e is interesting and definitely better edited, and 3e has greater lore and lore coherency, but both have some things rules wise that just don't do it for me.

And Anarchy is just out. It's not light enough to be really rules light, and not crunchy enough to work for normal-ish SR from what I remember.

Well four ideas.

1. Rural character coming to the big city who is an adept and not fond of technology well high technology doesn't go on the net, not fond of fancy tech in general and won't want to be implanted who though has her favorite weapons and lets her physical adept training compensate for tech happy city folk.

2. Street Mage has power, training, the right look and focuses in an area of magic doing it well and will dabble in others later on.

3. A Street Doc a former Army medic retired, some cybernetics all from a war injury for the most part to replace her arm but is a good Street Doc armed but prefers not to resort to fighting.

4. Well someone needs to know the corps and move through the red tape while looking good and has a lot of money, the leggy and pretty nicely trained sort and well just wants to get a permanent place in a decent Corp by buying her way in and that takes money.

  *Grins*  I found it weeks ago.  The first GM to volunteer seemed at the time like he didn't want more than had allready signed up.

Well, given that it's been about a week since I poked the thread starter and haven't gotten a response, and haven't seen the other person that posted around when Drowdeviant did, I think I have some room if I still have willing people.

If not, I'll keep on looking up obscure 3.xf rules and trying to make ritual feats for various mixes of far-flung culture bases and fetishes.

I'm here we were PM'ing a bit, but I'm game for the game.

Either I'll play a more worldly street mage, who is more capable and can use guns and do some other things, or a more dedicated street mage focusing on magic likely learned some things in High School K-12 maybe on the fringes of a Corp her parents limited SIN employees so they sent her to their superior schools. Then she opted to get some worldly experience and signed up at her parents level. She would want to save to buy into the Corp in a Middle Class lifestyle then they can arrange a spouse and she can see her children make it in the Corp proper. But right now she is looking for work.

Would she be interested in the corp giving her a sultry fiance who doubles as her bodyguard? ;)

At her level she is a minor employee, but its better than not being with a Corp at all.

0-0 Well my thought was that my gal was related to middle management. Basically test tube baby from a top secret corp project who got snagged by a runner team and in young adulthood eventually runs into one of her gene donors who's career kind of has stagnated. Other games I've pitched this one for her and her "mom" are somewhat incestuous and having a relatively healthy family relationship with each other enough so that she's been offered a part time runner contract with said corp. More or less she's part of EVO's independent contractor pool and can stay with her adoptive mother when she's in town if she needs to. xD

Well she'll also have a limited corp SIN as part of her little arrangement.

What kind of gal are you thinking of play in terms of looks and metatype ruby? ;)

Human, not much EDGE, whose attribute wise Priority B and magic Priority A and skills Priority C but not sure what to be I can be a Magician or a Mystic Adept (burning a lot of Karma for Power for her Adept side).
