Hi folks,

my character is about to establish a professional runner team, but i still lack a good name for it. Because we played so long on a street level, i wanted to put some profession in the description. That means it should sound cool AND professional. I already stole some names from computer games (H.A.R.M. etc) but my fellow players declined them up to now. Names like "Runners Inc." are too childish...so please help me out.

Thank you

You think “Runners Inc” is too childish, but you think HARM is adult and professional ??

Why not just call your team GI Joe and be done with it.

Team names

A rogue Squadron of lone Star agents were wrongfully accused of a crime they did not commit. They escaped a maximum Ares Penal Colony to the Seattle Underground. Today still wanted by CAS, who is unable to get an extradiction them. They survive as Soldiers of the shadows. If you have problem, the corps are hot on your tail, And if you can find them. Then you can hire the LS- Team.

Dun Dun

Thanks for all the Fish

My first ever experience playing Shadowrun was as part of a group that went by the name Ace Wrecking Crew. They're hideout was an old junkyard and they even had a Tow-Truck (sometimes called a Wrecker) with the group initials (AWC) on the side. That truck was incredibly useful both as a utility vehicle and because it was the perfect urban camouflage at any hour of the day or night. Unfortunately it was only a two-seater.

It's all about presentation.
===

The Boss threw the commlink across the room, killing the connection and a (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nuyen.gif) 1,000 piece of technology. Adjusting his suspenders, he bellowed:

"Johnson! Get in here!"

A forgettable man in a nondescript suit entered the office, stepping around the cracked plastic and busted, sparking circuitry that marked another premium increase in his boss' insurance plan.

"What do you need, sir?"

The Boss huffed behind his desk, his sausage-like fingers curled into meaty fists.

"It's Yakashima! They're trying to muscle us out of our contracts! We've lost the sanitation and maintenance contracts, and it's only a matter of time until we lose the biggest one of them all!"

Johnson nodded once, adjusting his tie.

"Should I get the usual assets, sir?"

The Boss punctuated his response with the opening and slamming of a desk drawer, a bottle of Jameson's Irish Whiskey in his hand.

"No," he responded as he took a drink. "It's time we got...Cravenly Irresponsible."

Just being silly, but here's a logo for any team that wants it.

http://virtualsurreality.com/shadowrun/arse.jpg

The problem with making up a name is that it sounds like a name someone made up to the group using it. You're much better just using something from a session of play.

As an example, I'm pretty sure I could sell my group on calling themselves "Plan B, inc." because of the running joke "Reconned our way into Play B". (And because "Has anyone seen my Predator, inc." just doesn't have the same ring to it.) I wouldn't want to try to sell anyone else on "Plan B, inc" because it isn't going to sound like your team. (At least I hope not.)

I guess it depends on the type of team you are. White knights will have different names than scum of the earth. Most professionals will probably prefer to remain unnamed, or set up a generic sounding import/export company.

But the best names aren't the ones created by the players, they're created by the players' reputation.

Like AK46. He forgot his assault rifle in his domicil and left his comrades in a shootout to run back 46 blocks to get his AK. Hey, he has 2 dice more with assault rifles than he has with his ares predator. ^^
