Re: OOC Thread #2
Tiger Lily hasn't logged on in over a week. Might want to include Bester in the other group until they show back up.

Well I guess a summoned spirit can be the 'tank' as it were, if it comes to that. Course, on team Subtly Awesome, if we need a 'tank' we have probably screwed up somehow.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Putting together a vehicle playlist ....lol.  Anyone have any suggestions?

BTW the No Future book is pretty cool (and would be particularly useful to Gonzo). :)

Oooh!

It looks like 5e Shadowbeat. I may need to get that...

Re: OOC Thread #2
Is No Future out yet?

Also, we potentially have a new player.  Do you have thoughts as to what roles are lacking or needing more of?

No Future is out. And I agree, we need more fighting. We shouldn't need any if all goes well, but then things never go that well, do they ?

@Iris
Looking at the preview for No Future, and a Press Pass is showing in the contents.
Would you mind sharing the details on it? And if there is any point to a ProCam/SmartCam, or the fact there are cybereyes, drones and normal cameras available, there is little benefit to them?

Oh, I'm having a Simrig, with Electronic Witness and Day Job.

Live stream what it is like to be Gonzo, including drugs, bullet holes and yelling at sports teams!

Re: OOC Thread #2
PRESS PASS
There are some press credentials that are free, such as those given out to an event photographer, but legitimate cred costs nuyen. A press pass (which is registered to your SIN, of course) can be purchased from any media organization that’s willing to have you, giving some special access to areas. The press can enter a crime scene (but will always have an officer at their side to make sure they don’t disrupt anything), get into government functions, attend high-class parties (as long as they’re working) and gain some bonus legal protections. Note that many corporations don’t have a “freedom of the press” law in their corporate charter, so this is by no means a “get out of testimony free” card, but every real reporter carries one.
Availability 6, Cost 50¥

PROCAMS AND SMARTCAMS
Procams are cameras, large and bulky ones, but can have a rating (and therefore a capacity) of up to 12. Availability 4, Cost Rating x 250¥
SmartCams increase the limit of the attached camera (normally equal to its rating) by 1 (external) or 2 (internal) while connected to a DNI (a datajack to get the full +2)
External: Availability 6, Cost 200¥
Internal: Availability 8, double the cost of the camera

I haven't built a camera recently, so you'll have to judge if it's worth stuffing 12 points of stuff into one, and then having to mount it on a drone, or getting a cameraman to follow you with it. Or carrying it on your shoulder.
SmartCam: well, honestly, how many dices is your camera going to roll to need the extra limit ?

Re: OOC Thread #2
Thanks Catchy - I concur that I'm not fully seeing the benefit of a ProCam, compared to a normal camera, as if you do want 12 capacity worth of enhancements, the availability is bound to go over 12 and not be buyable at character creation.

Now, am I "legitimate" for a press pass, or is there a way to have a fake one? As pirate stations wouldn't have legitimate press, after all...

I would assume you can attach it to a legitimate SIN or a fake one?

Press Pass: I too assume you can get one for a fake sin, as a freelancer for some third rate media company who won't look too closely.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Electronic Witness? Not the best of ideas for a Runner, for only 5 karma, no on will do runs with you if they know your recording everything they do.. and if they find out.. your dead. May as well take Sinner or hell CORP sinner for all the head aches it will cause your character.

Meh, I don't think it's that bad.  If they have a code of honor that makes them get waivers to use the footage it isn't even a thing...lol

Re: OOC Thread #2
Yeah, cos Shadowrunners are notoriously trusting that way.

I agree with Bester.    I know that if Keys discovered that he was being filmed, it wouldn’t go well.
And Gonzo ‘promising’ Keys not to show anyone ... well seriously!

Catchy has a rather striking appearance, having her recorded committing crimes might be a problem. How many nocturna women are there in Boston ? Magic can help, but only so much...

Really you could even gimmick it.  Everyone in the group wears customized ballistic masks...lol.  have an entirely different set of aramor/clothes for the runs you go on.  :)
