Shadowrun 5th - Strike Team
So, I've been busy reading all the material that I can get my paws on and I think I've got a good grasp of what changed between 3rd and 5th edition.    What I've got in mind, assuming that I can still find my old shadowrun material online; is a variant on the "Corporate Strike Team".   Only instead of doing the covert ops, you're the ones that get called in should the covert ops (i.e. Shadowrunners) get in too deep.

I'm thinking that your squad/unit is called the "Monster Hunters"....because in the past you tend to end up with those kind of missions.  I'll have to adjust the character generation table a bit in order to better fit my rather tentative idea.   And yes, you'll end up working in Seattle.

Please chime in here if you're interested, so I can get an idea of how much interest there might be.

I'm curious enough to at least be interested in your full proposal and character generation requirements.

Same. I'd like to see the details on this if nothing else.

That's about as much as I've got at the moment in regards to concept; which at the moment is going to start with you as the people who save your people from others/things trying to hurt them.  You could say something like a DocWagon response team, but instead you're working for someone else.  I'm relatively sure that I called them "High Threat Response Team", if memory serves.

I'll flesh it out a bit once I get to the actual game setup.   I typically expect a "writing sample", about a paragraph to show basic literacy; and I'll likely end up making it adult as well.

Character creation wise: I'm thinking double base resources plus a 20-25% bonus on everything else.   I haven't quite decided yet.

An interesting idea to see what it's like for the other side. Instead of being the guys that cause shit to hit the fan, we clean up the mess. A very high-action game with downtime between responses.

I would be interested.

Games that explore other aspects of the world beyond the typical runner lifestyle always have great potential.

You might look at the "Prime Runner" character generation option if you're looking to bump the starting competency up.

Based on the responses so far, I believe that there's enough interest in the idea to get a game started.  So, we can begin here and see how it unfolds.
