SHADOWRUN: DEATH VALLEY

_____________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

Game Information:

Set in the near future, Shadowrun is a world filled with advanced technology and arcane magics, corporate control and political scheming, subtle maneuvering and blazing gun barrels. Most of this comes from Hiei82's ongoing Shadowrun game:

World:

Disclaimer: The world of Shadowrun has more elements than I can possibly explain in such a limited space, so I will explain only the most basic and important elements for ease of understanding. If you have any specific questions, PM me or check the Shadowrun Wikia (link below).


Technology:

Technology has advanced dramatically in the last 60+ years. The most notable of these innovations fall into one of two groups: The Matrix or Meta-Human Augmentation


Magic:

On December 21, 2012, magic returned to the world of man. It, like so many changes, came quickly and without warning. At midnight, the world shook - volcano's the world over erupted, earthquakes, tsunamis and storms appeared, as if to reckon the end of times. And, from around the world, Dragons flew to reclaim their lairs. The Mayan's fifth world had ended, and the Sixth had begun. People with magic are rare and few people can ever claim to have met a truly awakened person. Magic itself however, flows through the world, and people can see its effects everyday - from the images of dragons flying over their lairs to the devil-rats that infest every city.

Height & Weight: More simple questions.
Type: Just a general description of what your character does (e.g. Adept Warrior, Technomancer Rigger, Street-Samurai, etc)
Appearance: What your character looks like.

Any chance of a brief overview of the story?

Any chance of a brief overview of the story?

Shadowrun party is hired by the Yakuza to hunt down a man. The man walked into an exclusive private school two days prior and opened fire on a classroom. The Yakuza underboss's son was in the class and is currently in a coma. The gunman was a Yakuza associate, so the Yak's want outside contractors for the job (suspecting others in their organization might be against them). The Yak contractor gives the party a personnel file containing the background of the guy (ex-military, gun smuggler, etc.) and contact info. (address's for a mother and ex-wife). Negotiate a price (50K to 100K). They want the man delivered alive.

Oh I am so going to be a summoner. Plan to destroy the world with a dragon ftw!

Adept, Decker, or Technomancer... Decisions Decisions.
I'll probably have a sheet in tomorrow.

Well, it's not like summoning can ever go wrong *whistles nonchalantly*

Now. I submit either:

Or

depending on what is needed. (also, I can't decide who is more fun)

Considering I am going to be an absolute maniac too...yeah I will be avoiding the elementals. That or summoning them far far away, then unbinding them and letting them go apeshit or something. Who says it needs to be on my side? As long as it kills everything near it and I am far the hell away, who cares?

Also, for hiei, I like Moonlighter a lot more.

@Hiei I did not read your sheets before making mine, but yeah Archive would overlap a bit with Mondaine. I like Moonlighter a lot too.

I'm old hat at Shadowrun (3rd and 4th Ed experience), but frankly I always hope for a little fluidity for fun's sake. To whit: There's something I always wanted to try, but never got the chance. I wanted to work at the notion of the shockingly hinted-at idea of an awakened animal shaman. More specifically, I'm requesting permission to create and control 'Human Shaman of Dog, subsection Bogie Shaman' with at least one such a beast kept as a 'pet'.

Sooo tempted to bring in Charlie into this...

I really shouldn't. Just started university, I'll probably have enough taking up time as is...

But what the hell. I'd be interested, probably as a hacker or decker. Dependent on what the party needs. But I'm busy right now so no character submissions until later today.

EDIT: Unt here ve are. Hope she seems okay.

Accepted! :D

Kind of on the fence. You've done well in the last game though, I'd have to see how you play it.

Birdfalcon

Mostly good. Minor points- It's easier to read equipment lists if they're pointed, or at least have commas.
20 flashbang grenades is a lot for a single person to carry. Add 200 taser darts, clips for multiple firearms, shock gloves, body armor- he's a walking arsenal. I don't mind this, and it goes with the vigilante idea. But it's still a significant amount of weight.

Remember- you can acquire weapons and equipment as you need them. You don't have to carry everything on your back all the time. Better to have contacts with access to gear, and change your loadout in preparation for the run.

So it's like a magic dog handler, and the dogs are paranormal beasts? Sounds neat. There's nothing immediately wrong with that.

Asclepion:
Heh

Bogie is an awakened animal, a Critter, the Shadowrun equivalent of the Baskerville Hound. I have...hang on. Here.

I don't have time right NOW to work on a profile, but I believe I could work out something in the evening.

Still accepting people? :P

For Mr.Ivebeenframed? We always have space for you :3

Yeah I figured as much the rifle, shotgun and body armor he would only really use when A tatical Miltary style strike is called for. He's Ex-lonestar and uses his old contacts to get jobs. for patrols he would rely more on his pistol maybe 5 flashbangs and his adept/martial arts skils. So that being said, am I approved?

I would play Mondaine pretty straight, but with ulterior motives. He is basically trying to start a cult that would summon a dragon. Not too dissimilar from what one would find in any D&D game.

Yo Asclepion, I just had an idea for another contact that I've stuck on the end of my sheet. Is the character still okay?

Last Edit: 29/09/12

I'll have a sheet up later today, so don't count me out.

Let's see if this works for you.

Will post a sheet later today as well.

I will have a character sheet tommorow

LAST EDIT: 28/09/12 19:50:30

And it's not Charlie, surprisingly. Comments and criticism welcome.

Languages, forgot languages.

Hm. A young Elf from Tir na nOg. Our characters are either going to instantly click or absolutely loathe each other.

Hmmm... Depends whether both characters are going to get over their prejudices or not...

Then again, they are pretty friendly characters so maybe they will get on...

We shall see...

Just as long as Ziggy remembers that when Scots call you a c**t it's a good thing, we should be alright :L

As long as Jade doesn't mind being called 'darling'. It works both ways :p.

We have a plethora of elves. There are elves everywhere.

Asclepion:

I could pretty easily make Mondaine a human. In fact that would probably be better. Let me go change that right now.

---- nvm, wrong guy
