Not a problem.  The Magic-related skills I have in that area - specifically, Active Skill Arcana and Knowledge Skill Spell Design - both carry a Detection Spell Specialty.  ^_^  Plus, he's got a pair of Detection Spell Formula...though he might end up with more by the time I'm done tweaking him.

Yep.  ^_^  I don't know how much longer you're going to be on, but I think I should have my character tweaked and updated within a couple of hours, if you'll still be here, then.

Okay.  I will.  ^_^

Soph, question for you, something I've been puzzling over for awhile.  Do you need to buy a Shop in order to have a Magical Lodge, or do you just need Magical Lodge Materials?  Because I don't really remember that too well.

Maybe Kuno can help answer, too...

All you need are the Materials, which cost 500 nuyen per force point to assemble and set up.

I thought so!  Which begs the question of why I bought a Shop in the first place...I know I need Shop space to set up a lodge, but not a Shop itself...hm.

And to be sure, it is okay that all my guy is able to do, for the most part, is magic?  I know we've got 6 people, like Kuno's Street Sam (who is a beast in combat), 2 Adepts, a Face, a Hacker, and myself...but I just want to be able to rest easy knowing that I've got my niche, and the group isn't going to suffer for it.

Oh no, you're perfectly fine being a pure magician. We're going to have a demo specialist as well, just as soon as I get around to finishing Yuna0417's sheet and posting it. ^^

Okay.  We have, so far, IMS:

Kunoichi - Ghoul Street Sam, aka Dancer
Hikari - [Metatype] Hacker, aka Conductor
Anathanasia - Elf Face/PI, aka [Unknown]
Yuna - [Metatype] Demolitionist, aka [Unknown]
Ashes - Completely unknown

And of course, myself: Human Mage of Phoenix, aka [Unknown].


*looks at list*

Oh god.  Not again.

Yours is the second Shadowrun 4E game that I have had the distinction of playing.  In the previous one (in which Kunoichi was also a player), there were originally two male players.  However, partway through an adventure, the other male player got banned, leaving me as the sole male of the party...

...and so, here we go again.

Do we know anything about Ashes' character?

That makes sense. ^^

I'm working on Ashes' character with her. She's an Adept who is focusing on movement skills over combat. She's basically shaping up to be a melee fighter who specializes in tailing people.

Okay, so she'd be taking Physical and Stealth Group skills, and powers like Flexibility, Great Leap, Wall Running, stuff like that?

Oh, that's a good idea, she should consider that-she had been focusing more on the perception powers, but if you're going to be using a detection specialist she can afford to specialize more in that direction.

Well, it all depends on how much Magic she has to work with at the very beginning...but if it were me, I'd take the following:

One of the Improved Reflexes Powers - she may not be a group combat heavy, but having extra actions is never a bad thing.
Two Improved Senses - I usually take Low-light and Thermographic Vision, but she could take any two special senses, to cut down on the need to buy them, or to be redundant.  Fancy Goggles tricked out with half a dozen vision modes can't help you if you're not wearing them.

That's either 2 or 3 Power Points right there - depending on if you take Improved Reflexes I or II, respectively.

All the remaining points I have, I put into whatever my character's magic focus is.

Also, keep in mind...it's never bad to have redundancy.

Contacts:

Leslie Nakamura: Fixer: Met way back when she dropped out of college.  She was the gir on campus who knew it all, knew what clubs were hopping, who was here, what to get, where to get it and who to get it from, and who needed what, but most importantly, where to get rid of stuff for a decent price (minus a commission).  Now, she's past the campus and on the streets with wide reaching fingers into many pots.  She's morally ambiguous, and in D&D terms, would be deemed as Financialy Neutral.

Connection: 2
Loyalty: 3

Jason Lacroix: Street Sam: Met during a shootout.  She was smart enough to dive behind the right car, he was lucky enough to have a gun jam, and even luckier to have it handed back in perfect working order after it was thrown down.  After that, she became a source of explosive for what he needed, and he became a little muscle and knew enough people to get stuff when she needed.  Not around a lot, but still knoes the redhead when she calls.

Connection: 3
Loyalty: 2

<I need a name>:Public Investigator: Ex-cop, and knoes Jessie's bomb signatures, but likes her too much too much to turn her over for her past crimes.  Off the firce after punching his superior and breaking their jaw cause of a little misunderstanding concerning an investigation.  Now a ver gruffled and good PI.  Still with buddies on the force, and in the streets.

Connection: 4
Loyalty: 2

Gear 6 (30,000)

And you should feel free to PM Ashes or discuss her build with her here, I'm sure she would appreciate the feedback. ^^

Not a problem.  I didn't see her on, so I'll talk to her later.  Also, because I happen to be weird like that, I'm putting Yuna's character into the character maker program that I have for 4E, see if she spent the whole 400 BP, or if she can buy other stuff.

Indeed you did.  First up, Yuna's Initiative is wrong.  It should be 8, not 7 (Initiative is Reaction+Intuition).  Also, this may or may not be covered on the sheet, but there's 6 BP left of points to spend.  Now, I noted that you had Gear (30,000) on the character sheet.  I'm thinking that that's the 6 BP still left, yes?

Also, couple of other things.  The Armor Jacket is nice, but unless you subscribe to the '1 piece of armor = no encumbrance' houserule, she's better off getting a setup like what I have.  I just want to know if you use that rule.

I don't use that rule, so feel free to advise her about whatever setup you feel is best. And the remaining 6BP are indeed her Gear and Lifestyle.

Now, before I have to help at least two other people...I need to figure out how to spend 2 more BP...

That looks great, I still need to name her and get a name for that contact (taking suggestions) and I do have some ideas for a more specialised explosives and eequipment...that will need to be either made in game, or procured somehow.  Fun times for those.  Trust me.

Yuna, I've gotta ask...that avatar of yours, where's it from?  I get the vaguest feeling that I recognize it from somewhere.

Also, I have some potential advice for the remaining 30,000 you've got left to spend, too.
