Shadowrun Recruitment: Highway to Hell
« on: October 01, 2012, 02:10 »

I want to start a game of my most favored PnP RPG; Shadowrun 4th Edition. So, here it is!

Character Creation

- You can use 400 points to build your character
- Availability limit is 12F; anything above requires the "Restricted Gear" quality (Runner's Companion)
- I will allow aanything from Core, Runner's Companion, Arsenal and Street Magic

Any questions? Don't hesitate to ask!

Background

You are part of a semi-cohecive team of runners in the Seattle area. The team is low on the Lone Star's shit-list, but still has a halfway decent reputation. The team has a knack for extraction- and retrieval-runs and the word is getting around. So much so that the teams fixer, a Jamaican Troll named Sanka, contacts you to inform the team that he potentially has a retrieval-run for decent cred if the team can make a arrangement with the Johnson. "Jah man, the man probably be corporate, man. All thinking he be sly and shit, but he don't fool the Sanka-man." the troll says with a smirk "But the pay ain't bad, so it be up to you. Do I need to make arrangements?"

Will you join me in Seattle?

I know nothing about this system or setting, but I'm willing to learn. And since Lesser of the Heresies is going slow lately (and I'm having a blast playing it), I'd be glad to join this as well, if you can point me to where I can learn the system and stuff. I'm a quick study in these kinds of things.

That would be no problem Klaer. To give you an idea of the system I'll try and discribe thing best I can without a Core Rulebook.

Background:

It is the year 2077... Cybernetics is a thing, all-encompassing internet with VR is a thing, magic is a thing.
Yes, magic is a thing and so are elves, dwarfs, trolls and orks!

- The Timeline of Shadowrun
- Some fiction to give you a taste
- Quick Start Rules (slightly simplified)

The Core Rules are available at DriveThruRPG

Best spend $15 in my opinion. I went the extra mile and got the hardcover.

I will see. I'm PROBABLY going to join this. I'll give a straight answer after building enough time and willpower to read the rules, text, fiction, etc.

OK, I haven't checked it out in detail yet, but is at least part of the Shadowrun world similar to this?

The Core Rules are enough to start with, if you think you are gonna enjoy a Cyberpunk/High Fantasy hybrid.

Actually, it is quite similar to System Shock. Only with magic!

Count me in. Are there any character restrictions or anything specific to this campaign?

Aside from those in the OP; no. All may apply. Mages, Street Samurai's or Technomancers. You are all welcome!

I read the quickstart rules over and over and over again and fail to notice any guidelines on generating a character. What gives?

Its not in the quick start rules; its in the Core Book.

A link for the core rules, then? Preferably one that doesn't want 15 bucks from me.

Economic crisis, ey? :-P I'll see what I can do. But really, you should support Catalyst Games Lab if you enjoy it ;-)

More like absence of a suitable payment method. I have 15$ to spare, but, believe it or not, no way to actually get it there. Plus the shipping will most probably cost me another 10$.

And even if those problems didn't exist, I honestly think it's pointless to buy a physical rulebook unless you are going to hold some real-life sessions of that RPG. Considering that the amount of people around me who are into RPG is next to zero, that probably won't happen.
