So, I have the time to have a life again, and I feel like stretching my GMing wings.

If I can get some bites, I'll be running a fairly upscale run exploring themes of transhumanism and personal modification.

What this basically translates to is exotics, person-hunting, a little B&E, and as much quality as I can pack into a run.

Anyone interested? If so, drop some character concepts into either my PM box or this thread. If I get enough bites, I'll finish fleshing it out.

O.O! well, I'm currently in 2 games... but you asked for exotic! I like exotic!

I wanted to play White Fang. An elven wolf shaman who loves combat and even will take weeks in the wild in wolf form to seek the thrill of the hunt. An old native american from the Ute Nation, he was raised on the country side in a small village. He has been bound to honor the way of the wolf as a means of family, loyalty, honor, and respect for superiors. White Fang lusts for the thrill of honorable combat and will never back away from a challenge. Skilled with a sword, tracking, and magical combat, his skills have brought him into the darkest corners of the world, and the metaplanes.

Hrmm, been a while since I played game like that. As a concept:
Dirk, former cop in a city that had not yet signed on with Lonestar. As a token orc hired on during a liberal governor's outreach program he never fit in with the boys in blue. If he called for backup, they ordered out for pizza, and as a result he wound up with more than a fair share of injuries. Sure, the department patched him up, but they couldn't mend his lack of trust. Finally, something happened that allowed him to break the line od silence and sue for damages, of course this didn't sit well with the fraternity, so one night, when he was on patrol a "gang" ambushed him just outside of town, the resulting accident cost him an arm. Unable to prove who the guilty were, Dirk bartered a certified credtsick for his structured settlement and disappeared off the grid, only to appear as a predator of the streets in Seattle.

I would like to use Bodhi.

Bodhi is a magician, but of a different sort. She's (somewhat self-referringly) known as a "Spelljammer." Essentially, she's a magician that specializes in making other magicians' lives a living hell, with high Counterspelling, Banishing, and a modest Spellcasting ability with spells that would give any magician a hard time.

Her "jamming" abilities are based off of a 'twitch' sensation or gut-instinct -- she subconsciously feels the mana and seeks to shut it down. She's something of a mana-disruption field when she needs to be. Her 'tradition' is Intuition-based.

When she was young, she lost her parents in a crime aided with magic, which is how her focus came to be. She grew up on the mean streets in the crummier sides of Seattle, scratching by and growing up as do the SINless. Upon the arrival of the Second Crash, she indeed was and any chance she had at a 'normal life' was erased.

Interestingly enough, despite being a Magician Bodhi is rather prejudiced against them herself due to the fact that it was magic that helped in murdering her parents.

Nyghtchylde is an emo poser. He was born a low-functioning autistic, and when his parents learned that he might not ever learn to talk or function in society, they decided to pay for a cerebral enhancement. Now he talks, but he remains a social outcast. He has an obsession with technology, hacking and cyber especially. He sees a cyberarm, he can probably tell you the company, model, and baseline stats of it. He began prowling assorted Matrix sites fairly early, and he's managed to run into a fixer who has set him up with a number of illegal firearms that he has currently hidden under his bed, as well as hacking jobs that provided the nuyen for his 'ware. Odds are, one of two things are going to happen: he's either going to lose it and shoot up his school one day, or he's going to become a serial rapist and murderer.

He's a street samurai/weapons specialist/combat hacker in terms of party roles.

'ello! Haven't seen you in a while.

I would love to participate, I recently moved into the gameless void that is Boise and really need to refresh my SR4 skills if Im working GC this year.

I have a ready made Technomancer I could spruce up for the run. She's very heavy offensive wise and has been working up her defenses. I could either submit her as is with about 4 runs with of experience or I could reset her back to fresh gen if you'd rather. Shouldn't be too terribly hard to reverse her as she hasn't done too terribly much.

As far as character concept goes, think of your basic grown up otaku. Very techno-centered, to an almost religeous zeal. She has a certain level of distain for cybered hackers, but also has pity for them, seeing them as disabled and trying to compensate for their lack of natural ability. Her morals are questionable when compared to accepted norms, preferring to make decisions based on circumstance, rather than some higher code of conduct. Sometimes it's wrong to kill, sometimes it isn't. That sort of thing. :)

Count me in for another bite, this one sounds like it'll be cool. I'm bouncing around a few ideas about a possible character, I'll whip up a basic concept and post it here after they've solidified some.

I was wondering how long that would take.

Anyways, any more takers? At the very least, I see a fairly distinct lack of faces and/or face-like qualities.

What edition are you going to be running the game in?
Splicing SURGE into 4th Edition I have Fox Blade Adept that I would like to try out.. how more transformed can you get? Though her facial features are human, hair growth and a bushy tail make her look like a bipedal fox. ;)

If it's 3rd, I could create the character under 3rd Ed rules just as well....

I could certainly create one...
The daughter of refugee's that immigrated to the UCAS, Anya knew her lot in life did not include holding onto the old ways that forced her family to leave. She embraced the multicultural scene of the Seattle metroplex and became swept up in any intrigue she could worm her way into. She found she had a knack for talking her way past bouncers at the most elcusive clubs, into VIP areas at concerts and out of any traffic ticket that wasn't automated.
Thrilled by by the danger that Shadowrunning presented and it's unique challenges that were ideally suited to her abilities, Anya had herself erased from a system that was all to happy to oblige and she became known as Lada. And plying her trade in influence in the Shadows of Seattle.

Max is a hermetic mage with a crap load of spells and a decent ability to summon spirits. He can speak five different languages fluently, curse in six, and knows cheesy pick-up lines for two more. :)

Incidentally, he'll be able to pull double duty as a face if necessary, although he won't be nearly as good as a souped up social adept with all the bells and whistles.

about faces, White Fang is a shaman elf, and thus is very charismatic. He has no social skills, but he is very personable, liked, and a natural negotiator. If necessary, I can just find some points and make him more social, and thus able to play our face as well.

PS - So, umm... are there any specific chargen rules?

Bear with me. Still ironing out a detail or two. I'll be putting up chargen rules and announcing who's in and who isn't by midnight tonight, East Coast time.

As I've more submissions that spots, not everyone can be accepted, but that's pretty much standard in this situation.

And the roster is:

Nikoli (Anya)
Abschalten (Bhodi) The condition is that I am informed what 'Abschalten' means.
Blitz (Unnamed technomancer)
Rokur (White Fang) The condition being that you realize people are going to nickname the character something else, I'm certain.

And that's her. I might add one more in the form of someone invited specifically, but I doubt it.

As for character creation, you'll have 475 pts with an avail cap of 16. It being SR4, there isn't (as of yet) too many crazy options to approve or kibosh. Sheets by Wednesday, please. I'll accept them in Word or Excel, spraypainted wall, .gif, or whatever else my box can handle. evilwins@thedigitalsoul.net

Any questions, comments, etc., you can email me or PM me. If you want to do anything out of the box, I can most certainly be negotiated with.

That's cool. White Fang was meant to be his given name anyway. He wouldn't run any shadow ops with his real name.

The word is that (unless it's hiding somewhere I havn't found yet or my email is acting up) I'm still waiting on a sheet out of Blitz and I'm still ironing some things out with nick (who may or may not be joining us.)

As soon as that's worked out, we're good to go.

Also, I'm not sure if Rokur sent me a sheet (all that is on another computer atm).

I apologize. I had some time and connections issues come up on Wed and Thurs so I wasn't able to get it sent in. I did send a PM to Mike, but haven't heard back yet. Just so y'all know, I sent it by tonight so all should be good :)
