Wow, how did they get such lousy inits? Ghouls have an Initiative of 9. Unless these are some really substandard Ghouls...

Anyways, spirit chucks an F5 stun ball at the C3-D4 Intersection.

4 MAG + 4 Spellcasting
[roll0]

Each takes 5+Net hits Stun.

Resists 3P drain with 4 WIL + 4 LOG (presumably, not that it matters too much)
[roll1]
EDIT: No drain!

Also, there is no "s" in "precedence".

Running toward K36 and if I get there (I'm a little unclear on scale) toward K5.

Running:
Strength - 1: [roll0]

RandomLunatic

Looks like 1 meter per square. So with your sprinting roll, you would end up at K9 at the end of the turn.

Key word being end of turn. You gotta split that 41 meters of movement across three IPs, so after the first you should be at K37 or so. Depending how he wants to round.

Yeah that's fine, rolls are rolls.

Telasi
2012-11-24, 06:59 PM
Okay, that second roll is pretty terrible. When I'd have done better buying hits...

Base damage is 6S(e) v 1/2 I, as normal for SnS rounds. If I hit, they get to resist that + net hits and then make a Don't Tase Me, Bro! check.

I'm still alive, but my semester is winding down, so I have a ton due. I had a project and 3 tests this week. Tomorrow night I should be over some what of a hump for this week, so post should be up then. Next week I have some more tests and a paper, but will try to get another update or two up then.

Been trying to catch up on work and get ahead so I could do this in a timely manner. Sorry about it though. Once we get into the normal adventure it should go smoother as I have that written up. A lot of this was semi-planned on what you all did action wise.

Ok map coming up tomorrow night. The ghouls have taken their damage, everything hit except for Damian's 2nd shot. All the ghouls are still standing, some better then others..

Waiting to see what Mick does.

Also the ghoul passed the don't taze me bro test.

Also next week are my finals and then my schedule clears up again, woo!

Edited: because I miscounted who's turn it was.

RandomLunatic
2012-12-11, 11:27 PM
Well, I think they all have taken enough damage to knock their initiative down far enough that Mick goes ahead of them instead of simultaneously. I have just been waiting to see the results so I can tell if I should Stunball them or just use the taser.

Daravon_35
2012-12-11, 11:31 PM
Did anyone have 2+ init passes or no (besides rhyno) and I can do the init's for them now.

They are:
G1: 6
G2: 5
G3: 4

You should probably kill either all of them or all but one before they go, but we'll see.

RandomLunatic
2012-12-11, 11:34 PM
Well, I have not yet taken my 1st turn yet. I want to know if I go before the ghouls or not.

Damian has Wired Reflexes 2, which he'd have triggered on the way to the fight.

Daravon_35

Well, I have not yet taken my 1st turn yet. I want to know if I go before the ghouls or not.

Sorry about that, Random, yeah go ahead you will go ahead of all 3 of them with the wound mod. When I looked quick I thought the first stunball was you, not the spirit since I thought I also just saw the spirit moving back to kit.

I'll have to reroll the above then, so I'll nix those from that post.

RandomLunatic
2012-12-12, 01:09 AM
...Well, crud. Kit's charge did 2 things, both bad.

1: She opened herself up to an Attack of Opportunity Interception from Ghoul 1.
2: She made impossible for me to nuke all the ghouls without hitting her as well.

..Unless I use the third dimension. If the ghouls are taller than her (likely, given how short Kit is), then I think it may be possible to target the spell at some point above and behind the ghouls so it hits them and not Kit. It would just require a ton more math than I feel like doing to prove it. Would you like to accept such a point exists and Mick can find it, or should Ghoul 1 just get off the hook?

Daravon_35
2012-12-12, 01:26 AM
I ignored the interception, since Kit was already charging into melee with 3 ghouls. I didn't want a dead player in the first "fun" combat of the game.

As for the stunball. Ghoul 1 is probably going to get out free this time. Normally I'd allow it, but at least one ghoul is technically in combat with Kit attempting to evade her attack and the ghouls are probably fairly slouched over since they were just hunched down low feeding on the bum.

*Edit: If your stunball kills the two ghouls, I'll throw in the interception to at least make the combat more entertaining*

Telasi
2012-12-12, 01:45 AM
I should probably have pointed out that Damian's Predator is integrally silenced, so -6 to hear the gunshots if it matters.

RandomLunatic
2012-12-12, 03:20 AM
Or I can take the third option and multi-cast two spells-a Stunball and a Control Thoughts. Total pool is 5 MAG + 5 Spellcasting which gets split evenly.

F5 Stunball centered at the very top of the map at the intersection between 3 and 4.
5 dice allocted +2 Power focus
[roll0]

Resist 4S Drain with 5 WIL + 5 LOG

F3 Control Thoughts on Ghoul 1, with the same dice

END RESULT: 1 S drain with a weak Stunball and an even weaker and glitched Control Thoughts.

And since it came up, here are my rolls to determine if, to the best of Mick's knowledge, shifters can catch HMHVV.

Parazooology seems like the best bet, but I can make an argument for Magical Theory too (shifters are magical, and HMHVV has an awakened component to it), so I will roll both.

Parazoology 3 + 5 LOG
[roll0]

Magical Theory 4 + 5 LOG

Karen Lynn
2012-12-12, 12:24 PM
Or you could throw in the interception regardless, seeing as I did make the attack with knowledge of that rule. Your call.

Ok inteception hit is 2 net hits on you. So make your opposed test for Kit.

Dmg is DV 4P, AP 0 +net if it hits.

As far as you know, they can't, since they're technically not human and are animals.


Or I can take the third option and multi-cast two spells-a Stunball and a Control Thoughts. Total pool is 5 MAG + 5 Spellcasting which gets split evenly.

G1 and G3 resist the spells. G2 does not. All ghouls are still standing and will take their attacks now.


All 3 still on Kit, since she's close, by.

Kit has to defend against: G1: 4 hits, G2: 1 hit, G3: 2 hits

RandomLunatic
2012-12-15, 02:45 AM
Well, regardless of how chewed up Kit gets, the Spirit is going to throw a second Stunball to hit Ghouls 2 and 3, then move up to square F3 to lend a hand in the melee.

MAG 4 + Spellcasting 4

Interception blocked with two hits
G1 has 2 net hits on its attack.

[roll0]

Karen Lynn
2012-12-15, 04:46 PM
Oh, just saw the no interception bit. That makes it:

G1 with 2 net hits
G2 with 0 net hits
G3 with 2 net hits

6P resisted with Bod2+6 impact twice.
[roll0] 4 hits
[roll1] 4 hits

2p + 2p

Took 4p total.

So, how much damage did I do to the ghoul with my 3P+5 net? Curiosity only.

Low pain tolerance: -2 penalty now.

Telasi
2013-01-01, 09:36 PM
Unless and until I get more information, I'm tentatively against. Admittedly, this is mostly because I don't know anything more than the request has been made and the fact that I hate it when people come begging to join a game in the middle (due partly to some bad experiences with that in the past).

1. Who is this person?
2. What's this person like?
3. Joining as what?

Once those questions are answered, I can give a response based on something more than gut reaction.

Karen Lynn
2013-01-01, 09:44 PM

1. DaedalusK71 is his username.
2. I'm searching the site via Google for his posts

Well, I'm a believer in anything that alters party dynamics be unanimous, so if even one person says no after all is brought to the table, I support going with no.

I agree that what you all seem to be missing would be a rigger though and not a mage. Also maybe a little more of a face, although I know a couple of you have some cha w/ neg/con skills.

Those are the three PMs I've gotten at the moment, so you all now know as much as I do. As of right now it feels like people are leaning towards no, which I'm fine with. I just never have an issue letting another player join, but in the end it's up to you all, since this game is as much about your fun and enjoyment as anything.

If you all want more answers I can definitely invite him to this thread so you can ask them or he can talk, let me know. Also I have not yet pm'd him back about a char or what I'm allowing as there's no need for him to really make up a char (although he alrdy did or modified one) till I even know if he's going to join.

Karen Lynn

RandomLunatic
2013-01-02, 03:05 AM
Between Mick and Damien, I think/hope we have enough Face to get by. Which is why I did not bring it up earlier.

Is anybody else reading these PMs and getting a "Special Snowflake Syndrome" vibe off this guy? Not that that is necessarily a bad thing, but I just have horrible memories of the last time I gamed with a SSS (he was also That Guy, and he nearly managed to kill the game off by himself at least once through sheer unadulterated dumb*******ery).

Not that I am accusing Daedulus of being That Guy-I just get nervous twitches whenever I see this sort of thing pop up. I suppose we could try talking, although I am not too hopeful at this point.

Karen Lynn
2013-01-02, 03:08 AM
Now the questions from me: What is Special Snowflake Syndrome, and do I give it off?

Just looked it up... I fear I may give off that vibe pretty badly...

Karen Lynn
2013-01-02, 11:52 AM
Double post:

I'm going to want to see some IC for the character posted here, but the most snowflake it gets that I see is gnome/drow; not that I can say much, playing a fox shifter... Seriously, I'd like to see some of his posting for the character. C'mon, Daedalus!

If that's a human, only thing I see wrong so far is that he broke the 1 primary at 6/OR two primaries at 5 chargen rule.

Daravon_35
2013-01-03, 02:13 AM
Alright since no one has objected I'll invite Daedalus to this thread so you all can ask him questions unless Budget voices in quick and says he's against it.

Also looks like we left off combat at the 2nd init pass with the spirit going, then rhyno finishing his run and then damian. So if that's correct you all can take your turns, which I'm guessing will probably end combat, if not we'll then redo init and take it from there.

Hello everyone,

Daravon_35 said you wanted to talk before I was allowed to join the game (Kind of feels like a job interview...). I'll tell you a bit about myself and you can ask any question you like.

I have played Shadowrun since second edition, though I have been gaming much longer (Red Box...). I was a Fan Pro Commando back in the day and I worked with John Dunn on some of the early Missions adventures. I am a role-player not a roll-player. I am not a munchkin but I do enjoy a high-powered game where my characters make a real difference now and then. I like complicated PCs with character of their own. This is not to say I am a loonie, or as Lunatic put it 'SSS'. I simply enjoy exploring concepts.

I am a very good role-player. I work well with a group. I am happy to pick up slack where the party needs it (e.g. playing a rigger because that's what the group needs). I am not a rules lawyer and I don't meta-game.

So, you know a bit about me. I'm sure you have questions... Fire away.

Karen Lynn
2013-01-05, 09:59 AM
Oh drek, we have a writer... :D

So far, I like ya.

I guess we're just wary because we've all had a bad experience. My IRL game just faltered because of a new player, and is now on indefinite hiatus.

So, question: are you a jackass?

DaedalusK71
2013-01-05, 10:37 AM
I totally get that Adrian. I can't tell you how many games I have been in fell apart because of one person.

If I become that person chances are either I am doing it on purpose (in which case you should bounce me fast) or I actually AM SSS (and you should bounce me fast). In either case it won't affect me greatly, I'll just find another group's game to screw up (IF I were 'That Guy'... which I am not.).

Am I a jackass? I suppose I can act like a jackass on occasion but generally no, I am not.

Telasi
2013-01-06, 03:05 PM
What I really want to see is a little character backstory (just a paragraph or so hitting the high points) to go with the build. I reserve final judgment until then.

Just so you know, you overpaid by 2 points on binding your focus, btw. (SR20A, p. 87)

Background
It is said that some people were just born into the wrong family. That it could be said of Isidor Baumgaertner would be an understatement. Isidor was born to Jungen and Mädchen Baumgaertner in a gnomish enclave in the hills near Wels, Austria. The village had been founded soon after metahumans began appearing around the globe. Originally established as a refuge for metahumans to escape persecution, ‘Zuflucht’ gradually became almost exclusively home to gnomes, particularly awakened gnomes. While the enclave does trade with Wels, magical services for hard to get items, it is done so only by the elders and only when necessary.

Things even started well. Isidor was born a twin, a sign of good fortune. Early on, it was clear that both Isidor and Horst had significant magical talents another boon. By the age of 15, Horst was apprenticed to the Guild of the Ent where he could develop his abilities as a physical adept. Isidor, however, it wasn’t quite so cut and dried. Initially, Isidor was placed with Kai, one of the enclave’s shamans. Isidor made little progress and even after a year, had not found a totem or spirit guide; each attempt ending in failure. These frustrations were magnified by Isidor’s constant need to know ‘why’. Why do spirits get to pick? What are they? Where do they come from? How do you control the spirit? What happens if you use salt instead of gypsum for the rite? Why, how, when, if, what, where,…

It seemed as though Isidor would be forever an apprentice when something remarkable happened. While shirking his morning chores, Isidor was hiking high in the hills near the enclave when the ground suddenly shuddered and rose up. Thrown clear, Isidor watched as the ground rose and took on the shape of a giant man. In its fist was a hunk of gold the size of Isidor’s head. Paying no attention to the gnome, the creature lumbered off to the North. Curious beyond belief, Isidor followed, studying it intently as it moved.

The creature suddenly stopped and simply stood there, waiting. Looking around, Isidor noticed a large man in strange clothing standing there, watching. “Can I help you?” he said. Isidor, curiosity warring with isolationist upbringing, paused, unwilling to speak. The man shifted his head and spoke reassuringly. “It won’t harm you, I assure you. IF that is what you are afraid of. It is a construct, nothing more; an elemental servant. I see you are of the shamanic tradition by your dress, so you should be familiar with the concept, if by another name.” Isidor shook his head, clearing his mind. “Who are you and why are you here? Who gave you the right to take?” The man smiled and raised his hands in peace. “Who am I? I am Rudiger Fassbinder, Third order mage of ZetaDyne and a member of the research staff based in Thale. My company purchased mineral rights to this area three years ago. I am simply gathering materials for my work.” “Purchased from whom? We would never have sold our land!” barked Isidor. “You are a liar and a thief!” Shifting his stand and his gaze, Isidor calmed himself as he had been taught. If ever I needed help great spirit, it would be now…He began a low chant and could feel the energy of the spirits approaching. Rudiger, quite shocked at Isidor’s course of action, cocked his head and said “Child, you are ill equipped for this. You are clearly not ready. Calm down and let’s get you back to your home.” Isidor barely heard it… he was in the zone, that still quite place where his master had taught him to be. The spirit approached and drifted next to Isidor. “You have called and I have answered young one… what is your desire?” Isidor smiled and wiped the sweat dripping from his brow. “He is a thief. He has taken from the land. Stop him!” The spirit began moving toward Rudiger who stood calmly. “Child, I admire your grit but you have much to learn.” His eyes narrowed and the spirit stopped. Isidor shifted his gaze to ‘other world’ and saw energies pouring from the man and into the spirit. Isidor watched in fascination as it happened. Transfixed, he watched as the energies took on structure and patterns. It made sense. It all made sense. He reached out to the spirit and began weaving structure of his own, strengthening the spirit’s pattern and feeding it some of his own. “That’s the spirit!” Rudiger laughed. “Pay attention to the lower harmonics… Those can be tricky…” Isidor, infuriated, ignored his taunt and kept feeding energy to his spirit. Suddenly, the spirit shuddered once and dissolved into a cloud of leaves and dirt. “Aww… I told you. Those lower harmonics may not seem like much but with each increase in power, their effects expand exponentially.” Isidor cast about for something, anything to throw at the man when his eyes stopped on the earth elemental. Rudiger stopped smiling. “I know what you are thinking but that isn’t some little conjured spirit. That is a grade 4 earth elemental. You are NOT ready to handle that. They are dangerous enough under control. You go sawing at it like you did that spirit and we’ll both be in a heap of trouble. “It’s settled then…” Isidor said and reached out for the elemental. He never saw Rudiger raise his hand.

Isidor awoke on a hard metal surface with a pounding headache. “Relax, stunbolts have a nasty hangover.” Rudiger said. “Relax.” He said as Isidor bolted upright. “I only stunned you to keep you from going after the elemental. It would have turned out badly. You’ve got balls though kid… I’ll give you that. Maybe in a few years we’ll have another go.” With every minor move sending shoots of pain through his skull, Isidor looked at the man. “Can you show me?” he said. “Show you what?” replied Rudiger. “How you do magic…” Rudiger looked around uncomfortably. “Ah.. I don’t know if that’s a good idea. We really should be getting you back to your family.”

This really marked the beginning of the end as Isidor’s parents saw it. From that day on, Isidor learned from Master Kai during the day but every waking moment outside of that was spent experimenting in the woods and sneaking into Wels to purchase books on hermeticism. It just made sense to him. Order was the basis for the universe and if one could learn its laws, one could use them to his advantage.

18 is the age of decision, the time when young men and women take their place in the enclave. It is also the last time Isidor saw his home. He tried to tell them. He tried to explain. But they would not hear. ‘Traitor’, ‘Deserter’, ‘heartbreaker’… ‘Outcast’, ‘banished’, … ‘alone’

After wandering for a few days, Isidor contacted the only person he thought he could turn to. He searched for and found Rudiger who reluctantly agreed to put Isidor up for a while. Days turned into weeks and eventually Isidor was granted a position as Rudiger’s assistant. Many of ZetaDyne’s mages came to see Isidor, the gnome mage. In time, the novelty faded and work continued. It would be another 2 years before Isidor would discover ‘Black Forrest’ a secret program whereby ZetaDyne brokers the storage of toxic waste in caves carved out for that purpose beneath the mountains and forests of Wels. Betrayed by his mentor, Isidor stole the documents and ran. Hoping to stop what was happening. He went home but no one would even look at him despite his pleas.

In desperation, Isidor went to the forest to try and find the caves. His brother catches up to him and they talk. Only it is interrupted by a team of mercs with orders to kill Isidor anyone with him. A short battle and Horst is terribly wounded. Isidor carries Horst back to their enclave only to find it has been attacked. Fearing the worst, Isidor takes his brother to a local hospital where he is treated. Shortly after there are reports that Isidor was responsible for the attack on the enclave and decides to take his brother and run. And he has been running ever since.

Next stop, Seattle…

So it seems we're just waiting on final word from Telasi for you to be in Daedalus.

Also I'm fine with you playing whatever you want, but if you do want to play a rigger it is the one thing the group's missing. Also did you read over the first pages of this OOC where I go over how the game is and how the world is? Also what type of game it'll be. I do mention mages will have a little harder time with this run, so I want to make sure you get that warning.


Also I'm waiting for telasi to take his 3rd pass in init to finish up combat or start a new round.

@Daravon - Two things:

1. I have zero experience playing a rigger. Having said that, I am more than willing to try something new if the group feels they need a rigger over a(nother) mage. You'll just have to put up with my fumbling until I get my feet wet :)

2. I went through the first 7 pages of this thread and I didn't see any references to mages and the difficulties therein. Can you point me to the right spot? Was it in the recruitment thread perhaps?

@Adrian - Morpheus was soooo last year. Daedalus is next gen baby!

Also, can I get opinions on the rigger character from everyone? Does the group need/want a rigger badly? I'll start working one up just in case :D

It would be a boon to have a rigger in the party. And for fumbling around, this is my first caster of any sort since a bad experience with a 3e D&D sorcerer.

And please, the stuff of dreams, and the Aether that makes up all imagination is my playground. You have fun with your little maze and toys. :P

Well, Rigger is the one specialty we are missing ATM. Though I have always been of the opinion that one should play what they enjoy, 'cuz the whole point is having fun. So whatever you want, man.

Yeah sorry, it was in our other game's ooc thread. The game we played before migrating to mine.

It was basically this:

Regarding my game, just so everyone knows, you will all still be shadowrunners. You will not be Urban Brawlers. However if one of you wants to be an ex-Ubran Brawler that has turned to a life of shadowrunning, I'm fine with letting a character have that background.

This will be a shadowrun, involving Urban Brawl and a game of it. Beyond that you don't know how or what or why until you take the mission. Also despite magic not having a place in Urban Brawl, this run will have a place for it if someone decides to go that route. Although I'd probably advise against a team of full shaman/mages. Really plan to play a shadowrunner and just know the run will have to do with Urban Brawl. I wanted to allow yo to pick which mission sounded more fun and also so you all could know more about the game/rules of Urban Brawl beforehand. I will be changing them some and before the run starts I will write up a list of all the rules/ideas I'll be using for it. Also to the best of my ability I will be using the old 2nd edition lingo. I'll put up the dictionary list they provide in the 2nd edition for people unfamiliar with the words/phrases. Feel free to join in and have your character talk that way as well but if it's not your thing, then just ignore it and roleplay your character like you would for 4th (this current game). It's mainly to add flavor/fun. Plus I always liked it and wanted to include it in a game I play, so now's my chance.

Otherwise the game will be 4th edition game world and rules, with a little 2nd edition flavor/flare added in. Although no emoti-toys. I just never liked the idea of hardcore shadowrunners having digi-pets. I think anything else goes though.

(Sorry for the long ramble, but figured since people were talking/thinking about character ideas, I'd let you know the world idea/base and the one thing I won't allow.) The game will take place in Seattle, using the surrounding districts like Everett, Tacoma, Redmond Barrens, etc.


Also I may not allow day jobs unless you can really give me a huge explanation or tie it into your backstory as to why the character has it. Most tend to use it as free points and it never becomes a downside, so I'm leery about it. So if you can give me a concrete reason to have it, give it to me.

Also play what you want, I'm 100% fine with having 2 mages. It really is about your fun and enjoyment first.

== Description ==

Tall for his race, Neimand still stands less than a meter tall. An athletic build, he still looks like a seven year-old child to the eyes of 'big folk'. Were it not for his heavy beard and mustache, the likely would. Typically dressed in business casual, Neimand avoids the traditional habit of mages in marking his clothing with sigils and other overtly mage identifying material. He is striking in that up close he looks nothing so much like a scaled version of a Norwegian viking.


== Background ==

It is said that some people were just born into the wrong family. That it could be said of Isidor Baumgaertner would be an understatement. Isidor was born to Jungen and Mädchen Baumgaertner in a gnomish enclave in the hills near Wels, Austria. The village had been founded soon after metahumans began appearing around the globe. Originally founded as a refuge for metahumans to escape persecution, ‘Zuflucht’ gradually became almost exclusively home to awakened gnomes. While the enclave does trade with Wels, magical services for hard to get items, it is done so only by the elders and only when necessary.
Things even started well. Isidor was born a twin, a sign of good fortune. Early on, it was clear that both Isidor and Horst had significant magical talents. By the age of 15, Horst was apprenticed to the Guild of the Ent where he could develop his abilities as a physical adept. Isidor, however, it wasn’t quite so cut and dried. Initially, Isidor was placed with Kai, one of the enclave’s shamans. Isidor made little progress and even after a year, had not found a totem or spirit guide; each attempt ending in failure. These frustrations were magnified by Isidor’s constant need to know ‘why’. Why do spirits get to pick? What are they? Where do they come from? How do you control the spirit? What happens if you use salt instead of gypsum for the rite? Why, how, when, if, what, where,…

It seemed as though Isidor would be forever an apprentice when something remarkable happened. While shirking his morning chores, Isidor was hiking high in the hills near the enclave when the ground suddenly shuddered and rose up. Thrown clear, Isidor watched as the ground rose and took on the shape of a giant man. In its fist was a hunk of gold the size of Isidor’s head. Paying no attention to the gnome, the creature lumbered off to the North. Curious beyond belief, Isidor followed, studying the creature intently as it moved.

The creature suddenly stopped and simply stood there, waiting. Looking around, Isidor noticed a large man in strange clothing standing there, watching. “Can I help you?” he said. Isidor, curiosity warring with isolationist upbringing, paused, unwilling to speak. The man shifted his head and spoke reassuringly. “It won’t harm you, I assure you. IF that is what you are afraid of. It is a construct, nothing more; an elemental servant. I see you are of the shamanic tradition by your dress, so you should be familiar with the concept, if by another name.” Isidor shook his head, clearing his mind. “Who are you and why are you here? Who gave you the right to take?” The man smiled and raised his hands in peace. “Who am I? I am Rudiger Fassbinder, Third order mage of ZetaDyne and a member of the research staff based in Thale. My company purchased mineral rights to this area three years ago. I am simply gathering materials for my work.” “Purchased from whom? We would never have sold our land!” barked Isidor. “You are a liar and a thief!” Shifting his stand and his gaze, Isidor calmed himself as he had been taught. If ever I needed help great spirit, it would be now…He began a low chant and could feel the energy of the spirits approaching. Rudiger, quite shocked at Isidor’s course of action, cocked his head and said “Child, you are ill equipped for this. You are clearly not ready. Calm down and let’s get you back to your home.” Isidor barely heard it… he was in the zone, that still quite place where his master had taught him to be. The spirit approached and drifted next to Isidor. “You have called and I have answered young one… what is your desire?” Isidor smiled and wiped the sweat dripping from his brow. “He is a thief. He has taken from the land. Stop him!” The spirit began moving toward Rudiger who stood calmly. “Child, I admire your grit but you have much to learn.” His eyes narrowed and the spirit stopped.

He reached out to the spirit and began weaving structure of his own, strengthening the spirit’s pattern and feeding it some of his own. “That’s the spirit!” Rudiger laughed. “Pay attention to the lower harmonics… Those can be tricky…” Isidor, infuriated, ignored his taunt and kept feeding energy to his spirit. Suddenly, the spirit shuddered once and dissolved into a cloud of leaves and dirt. “Aww… I told you. Those lower harmonics may not seem like much but with each increase in power, their effects expand exponentially.” Isidor cast about for something, anything to throw at the man when his eyes stopped on the earth elemental. Rudiger stopped smiling. “I know what you are thinking but that isn’t some little conjured spirit. That is a grade 4 earth elemental. You are NOT ready to handle that. They are dangerous enough under control. You go sawing at it like you did that spirit and we’ll both be in a heap of trouble. “It’s settled then…” Isidor said and reached out for the elemental. He never saw Rudiger raise his hand.

Isidor awoke on a hard metal surface with a pounding headache. “Relax, stunbolts have a nasty hangover.” Rudiger said. “Relax.” He said as Isidor bolted upright. “I only stunned you to keep you from going after the elemental. It would have turned out badly. You’ve got balls though kid… I’ll give you that. Maybe in a few years we’ll have another go.” With every minor move sending shoots of pain through his skull, Isidor looked at the man. “Can you show me?” he said. “Show you what?” replied Rudiger. “How you do magic…” Rudiger looked around uncomfortably. “Ah.. I don’t know if that’s a good idea. We really should be getting you back to your family.”

This really marked the beginning of the end as Isidor’s parents saw it. From that day on, Isidor learned from Master Kai during the day but every waking moment outside of that was spent experimenting in the woods and sneaking into Wels to purchase books on hermeticism. It just made sense to him. Order was the basis for the universe and if one could learn its laws, one could use them to his advantage.

18 is the age of decision, the time when young men and women take their place in the enclave. It is also the last time Isidor saw his home. He tried to tell them. He tried to explain. But they would not hear. ‘Traitor’, ‘Deserter’, ‘heartbreaker’… ‘Outcast’, ‘banished’, … ‘alone’

After wandering for a few days, Isidor contacted the only person he thought he could turn to. He searched for and found Rudiger who reluctantly agreed to put Isidor up for a while. Days turned into weeks and eventually Isidor was granted a position as Rudiger’s assistant. Many of ZetaDyne’s mages came to see Isidor, the gnome mage. In time, the novelty faded and work continued. It would be another 3 years before Isidor would discover ‘Black Forrest’ a secret program whereby ZetaDyne brokers the storage of toxic waste in caves carved out for that purpose beneath the mountains and forests of Wels. Betrayed by his mentor, Isidor stole the documents and ran. Hoping to stop what was happening. He went home but no one would even look at him despite his pleas.

In desperation, Isidor went to the forest to try and find the caves. His brother catches up to him and they talk. Only it is interrupted by a team of mercs with orders to kill Isidor anyone with him. A short battle and Horst is terribly wounded. Isidor carries Horst back to their enclave only to find it has been attacked. Fearing the worst, Isidor takes his brother to a local hospital where he is treated. Shortly after there are reports that Isidor was responsible for the attack on the enclave and decides to take his brother and run. And he has been running ever since.
Next stop, Seattle…


== Concept ==

A man without a home, Neimand is seeking revenge against those who assaulted and defiled his place of birth. Slow to make friends, slow to anger, Neimand is methodical and ruthless to those standing in his way. To those he calls friends, Neimand is generous and willing to give all in their defense.

Once the run starts Daedalus we'll get you in the game. Also if you want to put your char info into a mythweaver's sheet for me that'd be awesome. I looked it over and it looks good by the way, although I know I'm late on saying that.

Also remember a lot of my lore/splat books are from 2nd edition, so some of my game play data is a little out dated, but you are right, Mon Hing is def a cop hang out and with a success of 1, no one knows that it is...... :smallbiggrin:

2013-01-30, 12:29 AM
Rhyno's plan is to head straight to Mon Hing via auto-piloted motorcycle, but it's finally getting through his head that he's being a jerk to Topaz[1], so he's going to be careful not to ditch her, so if she heads off somewhere, he's going to tag along.

Neimand

OOC: With a 1 contact and 1 loyalty, that's all you'll get from Lyle.

Also it's Neimand for your char name yes? At the top of the myth-weaver it's Niemand, why I had it wrong in the IC if that's the case. I'm seeing everywhere else it's Neimand though, so I'm assuming that's the correct spelling.

For the data search on Grand Attraction I need a Data Search roll.
For noticing security, can you also give a perception roll. And for the results of the astral stuff, I have to wait to see what the other's are doing.


Also if you summoned the elemental anytime before you got up, he'll be gone since it lasts till sunrise/sunset, which both will have happened or will have happened by the time you meet the Johnson. Sunrise is probably 5:39am, sunset is prob 8:05pm or 20:05pm. So if you want to summon him, he'll you'll have to rearrange your actions. Unless you bound him, but then that gives him forcex2 to resist and that takes 6 hours.

After a couple of hours of looking you find the following info on the Grand Attaction:

It's located in Everett at 52nd Avenue West & 168th Street SW.
The current manager is Mitch Stiffarm.
There's talk on the shadownet about a bias against Elves there and that the owners of the place were once a group of Shadowrunners themselves.

It is one of the newer Novahot places in Seattle, featuring either up and coming bands on their way to stardom or already super star rockers.

You also find the following floor plan:

As for the analyze, what questions do you want answered for your hits (as per page 228 of the 4th ed anniversary ed.) or are you just wanting a general response to how the network looks? It looks like a decently defended network.

After a quick search you find the following info on the Grand Attaction:

I appreciate the update Telasi. I was kind of worried I might have lost you as well. I was feeling the same way about Karen and Budget. I know they're behind others at the moment, but they're roleplaying which is what the game is about and what I want. So I won't and don't want to rush them. Thanks for understanding.

Also it seems we may have lost DaedalusK71. I'm going to contact him and see if he's still in or not. He got to the club within his first post, although he put in so much else into it as well, I had to chop up the response.

If he is out, are you all fine with doing this with just the three of you, with a slim chance of Budget coming back or should I look for 1-2 more to join you all? It's still early on, so I can bring them in on the meeting of the run to get them in.

I'd like for Budget to always be welcome, but I'm not sure if he's coming back...

I'm pretty much cool with whatever as far as continuing the run goes. If you want more, not a problem, nor will I complain if we want to continue with just the three PCs still around. What's the worst that can happen?

My IRL SR4 game is pretty heavy on the RPing outside of missions, too, so it'd be very hypocritical of me to criticize the same practice here when I encourage it in my game. Besides, it's entertaining even without participating directly. Don't worry about losing me; unless the game dies completely, I'll still be around.

And I will be casting an F3 Levitate on myself so I can let my self down gently and not splatter all over the sidewalk. Since we are out of combat and Mick is doing it on purpose (and thus knows its coming), I am hoping I can just buy hits, which gives me 3 hits on the Spellcasting test and all drain soaked.

Oh yeah out of combat, roleplaying casting, bought hits allowed. Mick's good.

Right, I am going to buy hits again, because it is a watcher spirit, and I only need it for an hour. And then I send it off to check out the astral space around the Main Attraction.

Ok, so rerecruitment thread is up. Random already found it and it looks like we already have two people interested in joining. Hopefully they'll get chars created and sheets up and we can get them in the game as soon as possible

Woo! Without further ado we get back to the game. I'll get ghost in as soon as his char is up.

Sin is it ok if I call your char "Red" for their streetname or does your char only ever go by Michael? And without a vehicle you'll either be relying on the other chars or public transport or walking, just a heads up. Also! I almost forgot. I need to know where Sin lives.

Choose from the below please, anywhere you see middle:

Downtown Seattle: Luxury, High, Street
Renraku Arcology: Middle, High, Luxury
Aztechnology Complex: Middle, High, Luxury
Council Island: Middle, High, Luxury (Almost need to be Ameri-indian)
Bellevue: High, Luxury, Street
Tacoma: Low, Middle, High, Luxury
Everett: Squatters, Low, Middle, High, Street
Renton: Low, Middle, High, Street
Auburn: Squatters, Low, Middle, Street
Snohomish: Low, Middle
Fort Lewis: Low, Middle
Redmond: Squatters, Low, Street
Puyallup: Squatters, Low, Street



Anything that doesn't have street listed means it probably either patrolled by Lone Star, corp security or some other special interest group. If a place doesn't allow squatters, it's because their housing doesn't allow it easily enough.

I am going to live in Bellevue and Red is totally fine.. as my background is most likely well known, not that I keep it a secret it would be very typical of people to use the color of the armor that was basically my skin as my name. I am also going to buy a bike... Suzuki Mirage...

You only have medium wealth listed as your lifestyle, so you can't live in Bellevue unless you're opting to live on the street, since Bellevue is otherwise only high or luxury.


Perception: Skill 4 + Reaction 8 = 12
[roll0]

Perception is Skill + Intuition, which I see you have 3 of meaning you have a total of 7. I won't make you reroll, but I'll only be counting the first 7 rolls starting from left to right. Meaning you have: 5 hits.

Do any of the girls that messaged me fit into the category of "attractive"? I have a half-hour to kill, after all...

Also, now that half of the party's favored approach to problems is to get up in its face and punch it, my choice of Stunball is looking a great deal less clever. Could I please switch it out for stunbolt so every encounter does not devolve into a geometry exercise?

Yeah switching to stunbolt is fine.

Jessica - Blonde hair, blue eye, some chrome showing.
Sierra - Red hair and red eyes, no visible chrome.
Francine - Lots of chrome, brunette with green eyes.

All are fairly attractive.

Recent News you recall:
The Seattle Screamers won their Urban Brawl game last night against the New York Slashers 5-4, despite taking heavy losses. All but Star player Josh Fairboy were injured or worse when New York Slasher's player Tony Grasbor went on a killing spree. Urban Brawl officials are saying the vest Tony was wearing must have malfunctioned from taking an errant bullet to the processor, disabling the kill switch. Urban Officials are taking a look at all vests to make sure another incident like this doesn't happen again.

Red would rather avoid going into a place where is under the gaze of alot of people if he could help it.... Considering what he is known for, which is basically being able to take shotgun blasts to the chest without any real problem and then punching a tank with more force then an anti-tank missle....

The second he gets into that field, he will simply does what he has to... which does include punching someone with enough force to break a tank.... which I doubt they will survive if they can't survive bullets...
