Re: OOC Thread #2
I've been off the grid for a couple of days, so playing catch up.

If we do go for 2 teams, then there's room for 2 different Faces, so reviewing Painted Man to see if he needs any revisions, or a complete rebuild.

There was a character I built for another game a while ago called Gonzo, who was an extreme journalist inspired by Gonzo reporting, who is in the shadows to understand why runners do what they do, whilst recording and selling his experiences for extra money on the side.

Re: OOC Thread #2
There are fun qualities for that kind of thing, too.

Bean fell into running sideways because of personal connections and the fact that her employers kinda sorta evaded laws constantly and needed her to check the language on their paperwork. And eventually to chat up drivers. And then Iris needed her to sit in on a meeting, and Bean needed Iris to get away from the Irish mafia. And now she's only working two half-shifts for the shipping company and instead pays her rent mostly with, uh, "freelance consulting."

Re: OOC Thread #2
I decided I will keep Bester as is, Gunfu/ Sneak adept. Wont kill " non combatants", works as a "freelance bodyguard". Became a runner due to lack of options after Military screw-up/ setup/ dishonorable discharge.

Which of the 2 teams he will be in, He is a "lets get in silent" first and if the shit hits the fan. Time to rock.
As far as "Friends with other runners", I presume for game ease we all know each other through small jobs here and there prior to the game start. Or at least have some Fixer/ Fence in common.

I do like the Idea of all being part of a single large "Runner group", and that we all do our parts of whatever run is set up, as mentioned doing more than one run, and each of us helps out with what we are specialized in when the time comes up. Perhaps we will have a single focus for a while if something "big" shows up. (wink Big D  :) )

PS- i don't seem to post as often as some of you.. or more precisely, there is more of a time gap for when i can get online, but i will be watching the chat during the day a bit but work don't allow me time to look in. but once i am home I will try to check alot.

Re: OOC Thread #2
I think Gonzo is a great concept for a runner. I might have made something like that myself if I wasn't so new to the game.

I think some of your character images have gone, or are corrupt in some manner, you may wish to grab new ones. :P

I can happily build Gonzo if you think it would fit. He is also very keen on drugs to get him through his day/life, and I try to make him eccentric & larger than life.

So he won't stand out at all with other runners...

You can play what you want, the Gonzo idea is fantastic, but you don't have to play it.

I mean, now all I can think is, "Johnny Depp Does Shadowrun", and man... that could be hilariously awesome too.

Well, if we want to do that it would take a bit of a revamp but I could make Iris into Dillinger fairly easily....:)

Not much of a fan of the man and only know two of those names outside of Ichabod Crane.

Sleight can make you all look however you want ;-)

Re: OOC Thread #2
I'll get cracking on turning myself into Gonzo.

Big D, please edit my name.

Also, what method of character creation would you want me to use? I remember you mentioning karma over priority, but saw that Bean used life modules.

Yeah, some people wanted to stick with their previous method of character creation, so, pick your poison.
