Re: OOC Thread #2
"Weapon specialist" is a stretch. To the extent that Bean has a side, it's infiltration.

It does look like we could use some more physical combatants.

Big D, are you expecting to go with a huge cast and multiple teams again?

I'll make a weapon guy, then. That sounds simple enough to create.

Re: OOC Thread #2
LOL, every shadowrun character is as simple or as difficult as you want it to be.  I love the micro managing and customization rules in this game so my characters tend to be very complex no matter what I play....:)

Re: OOC Thread #2
@Bean, what type of Face are you going for?

The reason I ask is, I was thinking of a social infiltrator, so less about negotiating our pay, but the person who gets sent in somewhere for recon, dressing up as people, mimicking voices, faces, that kind of thing.

As I'm trying to think the type of character I would enjoy playing as, whilst avoiding too much overlap with people. Some redundancy is useful, too much is stealing someone else's thunder.

Alright, two of the older players dropped.

Also, let me know if I need to update your name and what you want it to be. :)

Given her construction via life module, Bean's not going to be as great at that stuff as a traditionally costed character (never mind a freaking social adept shakes head at how broken those can get). Nonetheless, that kind of social infiltration is her primary way to contribute to a team outside a meet. Like I said, she's not as specialized as Painted Man seems to be, and while she's got a lot of points in knowledge skills (another byproduct of the life module system), those points are not distributed as broadly.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Did anybody else besides Keys want some deep or shallow backstory with the Elvin Shaman Sleight? Maybe an overwatch job or getting something smuggled in Past the lockdown, maybe just some thing hidden for for a few minutes of inspection?

Re: OOC Thread #2
Keys is a full magician ... and fits most stereotypical assumptions therein.

He hired Sleight to smuggle him into Boston, and arrived here a few days ago.
Therefore he is without much in the way of contacts or resources ... or a place to stay.
But heís ready to rockíníroll.

Unless anyone contacts me about connecting their character to Keys, Iíll just look at making friends and influencing people as I go.
But if anyone has a reason that Keys May have specifically come into Boston ... through the quarantine ... please suggest it to me.  I am happy to backstory some connection with another PC that caused Keys to come here.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Well, I made a connection with Bean but with as many smugglers as we have it seems we should at least know each other.  Iris has a Metahuman smuggling compartment in her vehicle.  LOL

Good grief, does anyone know of any sources for info about Boston?  I am trying to get some knowledge and flush out my character background but I cannot find anything.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Part of the problem is that most Boston material is part of the Boston Lockdown video game, and is not present in the regular published material. And no, I don't have the game, so I can't help much.

I found a storyline of the events covered by the videogame here (SPOILER ALERT):
https://forums.shadowruntablet...ex.php?topic=20787.0

And here's a wiki article about Boston

Re: OOC Thread #2
Yeah, I read both of those and I did play the game (although in my searching I found out that it is no longer something I can play, lol).

I just don't know anything about Boston.

Re: OOC Thread #2
So Seems I  am a bit Late in coming back, didn't realize this game would get so active so fast. Bester is a Gun-Fu  Pistol adept/ Assasin, but since I have played this character to high Karma in an other game, I am all up for changing up. What would the group Need? Although it seems a Fighter would be useful. ( Plus Big D would be familiar with the Character too:)

Re: OOC Thread #2
We have two standard full mages ...
Two Smuggler types (1 rigger, 1 Mage) ...
Two Faces ...
A sneaky, agile cat-elf thief ...

More muscle wouldnít go astray, or an Alchemist Mage to help us with Preparations and Foci.
I dunno if we were going with the NPC Hacker or not ... but that slot is infilled PC-wise

Re: OOC Thread #2
So we seem to be:

Sleight: Shaman, Smuggling/Illusion/Heal Specialist.
Keys: Aakened, Combat and Astral specialist.

Iris: Vehicle Rigger / Smuggler.
Loren: Combat Rigger.

Catchy: Mystic Adept of Thievery (Low Damage Close Combat).

Bean: Face and Infiltrator.

Tiger Lily: Street Sam.

Bester: ??
Painted Man: ??


We could easily do with more muscle, in my honest opinion.
Sams/Body Guards/etc are the backbone of a Shadowrun team.
I feel we have magic covered, and vehicles/rigging.
