Re: OOC Thread #2
Hello, hello. Looking forward to joining you all! Seems most of the original group I was with is back. Glad to see that and everyone else!

I had originally built Rasputin out as a more traditional Street Sam. Havenít quite caught up on all the banter but it seems that might still be a useful skill set to bring to the team. Let me know if thereís something we might be lacking. Iím a pretty versatile player so I donít mind picking up most needed skills.

Iíll be a little rusty on SR5 since it has been a year or two since Iíve played. Been doing Blades in the Dark with my RL group. Shouldnít take too long to pick back up though :)

[Edited to add]
Now that 2 seconds after posting I find the skills thread, clear lack of decking. Are we for-going the matrix aspect as part of play or shall I fill out that role? Deckers can be a lot of fun.

Well, Iris is a fan of the Baton Rouge Red Devils (combat biking), the Boston Massacre (urban brawl), and the Ballista Futbol Club (soccer).  :)

Oh she is also a fan of Courtball but that doesn't have teams.

In reply to Rasputin (msg # 303):

Yes, we are seriously lacking in the Decking department. There is a technomancer NPC contact that it seems pretty much everybody has taken that was kind of filling that void.

If you are into decking, as a player, then go for it. If not, then we will just have to 'hire' a decker for every run, which will grind into our profits, but I don't have a problem with that.

Or take jobs that don't require decking.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Not having matrix security in a locked down city where there is wifi everywhere does not leave me optimistic that there will be that many jobs that are not trying to get people into or out of the city. Not that I am the GM, just don't see a lot of opportunity where we can be successful on the job and keeping our noses clean at the same time without a decker.

While it might make things more difficult, it will be possible to get around without having a decker.

Re: OOC Thread #2
You seem to have a lot of preconceived ideas about how things are going to be.  I trust in our GM to be able to make the game fun and challenging without actively being out to destroy us.  "What?  None of you are playing deckers! Well every run you are going to need one or you'll DIE! MUHAHAHAHA!" Just don't see our GM acting like that so I think we're safe, lol.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Will people who have Colonel Jack as a contact need to make a memory test about him?

I'm pretty sure the memory test is to identify the female voice in the background not the Colonel who gives his name in the first sentence.... but I could be wrong.

Re: OOC Thread #2
Well, the critical glitch was on my missing 2 dice, but 5 successes out of 14 total dice seems about right :)

Oh, wait, I have the keen-eared advantage, that should count too right ?

Oh wait, audio enhancement is specifically to 'clean up' sound, so maybe not...

Re: OOC Thread #2
Yeah, 5 successes out of 14 is right where it should be. I was referring to My memory test at 2 out off 11, which is pretty crap. Also the spirit test vs summoning was 3/6 which is high, but his resistance test was low....

Just the weird part of chance. Heck, I once rolled for my character to pick up a magical sword in Palladium and rolled a 3 in 1,000,000 (5 0's in a row 10 sided die, then a 3). The GM had required a 5 in a million chance and fell out of his chair when he saw it. Still didn't qualify for Excalibur though ;-(
