Unfortunate. I'll have to figure out someone else, then. Minimum Connections rating is 8 for FiHP. Any recommendations?

There could always be someone in the government.

Still working on that little hitch, though I've also been very busy with work. Narrowed it down numbers-wise, so I'm looking at either 10/6 or 11/5. While there is some temptation to be buddies with Damien Knight, I feel that could disrupt things more than it should.

Hehee... yeah it would.

What about a dragon in the lower politics serving one or the other great dragons... he would be a regular at the club and most people would not be aware of what he or she is.

Speaking of dragons... I did some research into Saeder-Krupp, and found out that they're tied to the Gasperi mafia family. So how about an SK intelligence director as an 11/5?

Primarily Matrix contact, I assume? With Loyalty 5, they'd go back quite some time. Figure Bishop might have been a point of contact between SK and Bishop's Family, then they proved useful to each other often enough to build a friendship.

Finally managed to plug all my gear into Chummer, and ended up with 22,170 nuyen remaining. I think I'll go ahead and call that good. Now to discuss that pesky Lifestyle... First the numbers:

SIN: Real - Elijah Bishop
  • Comforts & Necessities: 4
  • Security: 6
  • Neighborhood: 5
Points: 4

Point-Buy Entertainment Options:
  • Cleaning Service (Cleaning); 1 pt
  • Patron of the Arts Private Club Membership (Golden Swan); 1 pt
  • Zen Den (Connoisseur); 2 pts

Purchased Entertainment Options:
  • Garage Car (Body 5+) x2: 200
  • Candyman: 1000
  • Soy Processing Unit: 20
  • Yard: 50
  • Cleaning Service (Yard): 100


Thinking a modest, well-appointed house somewhere quiet. Nice two-car garage, both a regular cleaning service and someone to do the yardwork. Brandy room for appreciating the finer things, and for meetings with extremely trusted associates. Typical mid-level executive stuff. Costs 13,370 nuyen a month, paid out one year in advance.

You'd mentioned Washington, correct? In that case, Seattle seems best (please don't make me go to Spokane).

How would you like the sheet? I can convert it to a hosted pdf sheet, convert it to text if need-be, or just plop the Chummer export sheet on here. Dealer's choice.

Great, Looks like we are ready to go then.

Fighting with the computer right now thanks to that latest security update so I am a bit slow.

Oh, there was something I wanted to ask about. Chummer treats a ballistic mask as standard armor for encumbrance purposes. Do you agree?

Ballistic fibres are very lightweight and can be ignored for encumbrance. Especially in this case, as as far as I know, gas masks don't add to either.

Cool, there was a mask I wanted to build, and if I can start with a ballistic mask, it makes life much easier. However, I don't want a REA of 1.

Computer died completely,and my housemate has a working deadline coming up so i can hardly use his computer right now. We are trying to raise money fora new one but that may take a bit. Thanks to corona and Brexit my mate hardly got any commissions in the last few years.
