I’m recruiting for a pbp game. I’m looking for runners in a long term undercover operation. Characters should be willing to devote the next 3-4 years to the operation.
Characters shouldn’t have an excess of obvious cyberware. At the start of the game you will be a normal fresh runner maybe some experience but no real street cred. Characters will be made with 450 BP. The normal caps on abilities or skills is removed however you will have to buy the exceptional attribute or aptitude for the appropriate stat. There is no cap on positive or negative qualities (within reason) in addition you will be going undercover so I won’t allow certain qualities that will cease to have an effect on characters once they go undercover. You can spend up to 15 BP on Nuyen but remember at one point you will have to relinquish certain items especially illegal items.
If you are interested in playing let me know and post a quick character summary and if I think it would be good for the game I will ask for some more info and see how it goes from there. If there are any questions just ask.

Here's my try at a mundane with no restricted cyber. Figure without starting initiation, any magic is just as obvious as chrome.
Concept: An Orkland native who lived and fought through Saito's regime in San Francisco. After the fighting was done, he wasn't. He kept on fighting, this time in semi-legal boxing matches. Everyone was supposed to be chrome, mojo and drug free, but most weren't. In order to keep competitive with the other cheaters, Brass started cheating himself, getting expensive bioware, and, like all the other cheaters, eventually getting caught. No longer on the up-and-up of the under ground, he fell into the pit fights with twisted adepts and cybered-up hulks of metal. He learned to use combat drugs properly to stay in the game, but eventually he realized he was just going to get ground up by the monster of the week, and, so, he left to find other employment. He had the skills to work the shadows, but no clout, no friends and a big stamp on him as a cheat and a loser.
