How's Sum-to-11?

Normal runner, prime runner or street level?

Street level is fine, she could have just left High School and maybe got some university level certifications.

Well less money and free karma, its not a deal breaker. But we can always do Corp jobs.

If we go this route I'm going: Metatype E, Attributes B, Magic A, Skills C, Resources D.

  I'd quite apreciate sum to 11.  I'm perfectly happy with normal starting rules or prime runner rules, but prefer to avoid street level rules. 

  Ruby, you're looking at a mage? 

  (Sum to 10 is an alterante generation method found in Run Faster, if you didn't know, Ruby.  Sum to 11, just makes it so you can have one priorit ne higher.) 

  I've got a mage going in another game right now, so I'll look at other ideas.  :) 

  Since SUm to 11 is on the table, I'll probably grab a more exotic metatyep than human or elf.

Well just remember it a more exotic archetype means you're using some karma to but the privilege of paying one. xD

I personally could see my gal being a changeling. Though I yearn for the day I could play a drake they are kind of a too problematic for their own good. :3

Okay a Human Metatype E, Attributes B, Magic A, Skills B, Resources D for 11 Points.

I'm thinking ,depending on the game, many nice options.

Yes, a mage of some sort either a Magician or Magic Adept but with enough versatility an average person won't likely know she is a mage until she unleashes hell with a magic spell.

Okay, going back and possibly saying more with lots of quoting. I'd like normal runner cash and availability, but that's me. I will also again take a moment to proclaim the betterness (as far as producing actual low powered games go) of Street Scum on page 350 (and the Sum-To equivalent) over page 64's Street Level which just incentivizes magic and (the still not totally fixed by errata but made much better by it) technomantic summoning, both at near full power.

[missingthepoint]Drowdeviant, if you want to do Drake, I'd recommend just sinking large parts of your starting karma into the quality and forgetting latent dracomorphosis. You're just as unable to transform, but at least you have a better idea of when you can, and it saves on karma spent.[/missingthepoint]

RubySlippers, just be careful with a MysAd. Even pre-errata costs it's easy to spread a little too thin. On the other hand, know what you're doing and they're nicely powerful.

Her adept powers will be focused on enhancing her defense and bump up her reaction speed since I need to not appear to be a magician unless she needs to go there.  So appearing normal is good she likely will study some medicine so could be a Street Doc - perhaps. >:)

  So, i was thinking about a dwarf girl street samurai.  I was going to cyber her out, but then I realized i wanted her best weapon to be Wrist Razors. 

  They have an accuracy of 4!  An adept can use an adept power to raise accuracy with anything in the Blades skill gorup, so I could get her wrist razors up to accuracy 6 or 7 with a minimal investment, and still have magic poitns left to give bad ass supernatural martial arts and maybe a bit of utility too? 

  It even crossed my mind that she might play some rock and roll...

Or she mgiht be a more typical looking dwarf:

Oh, RSG--especialy with regards to the first image--if you give us Prime Runner status, she could buy a Second Skin armor without needing the Restricted Gear quality?  :)

Edit:  Oh! 

If I give her inplanted Wrist Razors, they'll use unarmed combat instead of Blades and Physicla Limit instead of weapon accuracy!

Character expirament: 

Tempo

   Growing up in an Evo archology, Niski Quade's family had deep ambitions for their daughter.  They filled her every waking moment with music and dance.  Part of it,  maybe, was that they wanted to help her fit in despite being a dwarf.  They started her on enhancements that would make her more alluring company and a more fantastic dancer as young as they dared.  By age 15, Niksi was part of a girl band.  Initially, she was dazzled by the job, but quickly became disillusioned.  She got to dance, sing, and play her guitar for adoring audience, yes, but it was all strictly according to Hoyle.  The music was dull and formulaic, she wasn't allowed to perform her own compositions, and she occasionally caught her managers talking about who would be 'the next big thing'. 

   Niski's parents may have obsessed over her musical career, but her uncle Otis was a bit more pragmatic.  He thought Niski to defend herself with unarmed combat, even took her to the rifle range, and was willing to talk to her about the life of adventure and terror he and her mother had lived before Dunklezhan's will made it possible for them to get a SIN. 

   By the time she was seventeen, Niski realized that the managers at EVO didn't intend for her to last as a musician—weren't going to give her the chance to be more than a cute young performer, and were sacrificing some of her education and opportunity to enjoy her teen years for their own profit.  Partially for reasons like this, and partially out of a simple sense of adventure, she decided she was going to become a runner.  She let her father arrange a trust fund for her, and paid in to it 'til she could live a comfortable middle class lifestyle for life after retirement.  Meanwhile a lot her her money was going into—not the trips to the mall and parties with friends she claimed—but investments in gray and black market cybernetics and weaponry! 

   By age nineteen, though Niski was still working 10 hours a week with her band doing recordings and concerts, it was clear that her star was falling.  The corp had never really expected them to be more than teenage sensation—one of a hundred in any given generation. 

   It was time for her next adventure to start.

First, I forgot to ask if people had seen the translation of the German State of the Art ADL stuff. Because it's got some good stuff in it. (I'm glad I got it to practice some Deutsch reading.) Second, don't worry about second skin regardless of what status is gone with. It will be provided (with an injector, which you may want somebody to get rid of, but perhaps not. It can be useful.)

As long as your an Adept we are fine, Aspected Magicians she is Prejudiced against as not proper magicians as opposed to Adepts who are curiously capable channeling magic into their bones and muscle and mind and Magicians who are proper mages and Mystic Adepts the best of the best but she is naturally biased there.  :P

Dwarf cyber build is waht I'm expiramenting wtih.

I don't recall if I gave my advice for non-Troll melee in a thread Muse was in before (IIRC last time you did magic, and more imporantly I also had a house rule for melee in effect), but I'll give it here for everyone to take on to other games that might not implement any melee house rules.

If you have a cyber-limb, then you can put a rating 5 sensor or sensor array in it. You can also put them in gear, but most gear won't give you the room or max a cyberlimb will. Make an Active Sensor attack (p 184, sadly not a use where E.Warfare can sub in) and the net hits apply as a defense penalty. So it's like bursts and auto-fire for melee, but slower and potentially longer lasting.

...  Wait, what's the relationship between teh second skin armor and an injector?  Or is it just that they will come simultaniously?

It's how the doctor feels safe at the first meeting. And Muse seems to be taking the napkin of normal. So that seems like it, other than the Sum-To-11.

I mentioned that the karma would be the same (unless people overwhelmingly wanted street). Or probably mentioned it once earlier and didn't re-mention today.
