Inspired by Eclipse Phase/Cuthulu Tech and Earthdawn this game follows on from the events in my game Emerging Conflict (although no knowledge of that thread is needed to play in this one). That thread will continue on during this recruitment period and I hope that the players from that will move on to this one as I’d like to keep IC more or less continuous.

I am looking for players to go to the remains of the Stillwater Community on the borders of Redmond. The year is 2072-73 but once there you will be entering into a UV node simulator that will take you to the edges of the future – and a dark dark place it is! The node will plunge you into a Realer than Real apocalyptic setting where you will need to fight to survive – to aid you in this you will have access to milspec gear and SOTA (circa 2070) technologies. Unlike RAW the node is capable of representing real life to a surprising level and even magic and the astral have been successfully modelled. What’s more the tech exists so that no matter who you are going in (from hardened shadowrunner to corp secretary) you can become more or less anyone inside the node...(This is a derivation of the simsense skillsofts except they can be higher than 4 and can also replicate magical skills – although they only work inside the node.) The game world encompasses the greater Seattle Metroplex area and parts of the surrounding countryside, circa 2105.

HuggyBear 2/3: HuggyBear is a hacker,rigger, gaming friend of Sticks. They're in the same gaming guild and have been through more than a few hair raising adventures together.

Gunnery Sergeant Robert "Blackie" Mallone 2/3: Blackie is the NCO in charge of the Motor Pool. A mechanic with a flair for the 'special' modifications that every vehicle jockey just loves. Sticks and he are always trying out new fine tunings, and little surprises that could one day save the lives of the rigger and his unit.

Nurse Hatchett: 3/2. A NCO Nurse within the Deep Watch Infrastructure. She's known 'sticks' ever since he was recruited a few years ago. They have a very solid patient/nurse relationship that's edged into something more a few times. Sticks has even taken her out on a couple of Matrix Dates.

Excellent, that's 4 existing players...anyone else out there want a stab at blowing up really nasty stuff with big guns / magic etc? It'll make Bug City look pale in comparison!

Aria, do you want us all to re-post our characters, barring any unfortunate death incidents between now and End of Days?

Yes, for those of you who want to continue your existing characters (and it's entirely up to you!) then please edit your first post to include the info (saves hunting through the thread later (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif) )

@ PoliteMan: I like the look of him too (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif) although it does leave me with the potentially complicated issue of what happens to AIPs when you are inside a UV node! I've been sort of working on the assumption that the node reads your expectations of what will happen so in this case you would feel the full effects when near a wifi device (the group will be full of them!!!). Alternatively I could rule that it's a physical effect and you could get rid of it in node?!?

Hmm, the guy still has plenty of computer gear, it's just all wired. I don't think he'll have any problems with the node itself, since I'm assuming he'll be hardwired in. There's basically two issues regarding AIPS:
#1 Communication with the team. He'll probably enable the wireless functionality for brief periods to report but regular communication will be an issue and that's intentional.
#2 Teammates. Around wifi devices he suffers certain penalties and he'll have trouble focusing but it's mostly roleplaying. I kinda of imagine AIPS as a limited form of technomancy: your hear the signals but they just sound like white noise. It will mean he'll have a tendency to go off on his own, see #1 and that's also intentional, since this guy is more of a forward scout type.
I'll look into some wireless inhibiting stuff from Unwired though and see if I can scrounge up the nuyen for some.

Edit:
Yup, either a can of wireless reducing paint or a faraday cage are only about 200 nuyen.

Just be aware that when you turn up at Stillwater in the beginning you are entering wifi central (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Quite happy for it to be a roleplaying rather than rules thing

I think occasionally in game, you should roll an edge roll. TN = BP cost of AIPS/5
If he makes it, nothing bad happens, if he fails it, the intense signal buzzing around his real body causes interference with the UV. Weird things happen, he gets lagged out (-1 reaction, or maybe all his action intervals go up by 1.. so a free action becomes a standard action, standard complex, complex, full turn.)

Have it last 3 rounds - net hits?

Yeah, kinda forgot about all that wireless in the downtown. Still, it's a pretty cool idea. I'm up for it. Might wanna alter the TN or include another dice pool like Will, no way I'm making TN 3 with 3 edge.

While you are sorting through characters and finishing off the previous thread can you also spare a thought for how you will get to Fox Island so I begin some prep for that?

Another map coming up soon...

Hmm, figure the roads watched and if it is, was, a sat launch facility they're probably really good at detecting anything airborne. Looks like it's swimming time.

If there's still room, I'm interested. How about an Ork gang enforcer looking to add this to his brag sheet as he makes the transition from gang member to runner?

Sounds good to me...the milspec stuff might be a shock but you'll have seen it on the trid (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

Hope to start this ic thread in 2-3 weeks as I round up the one we are on.

The map, now updated slightly to include more target info is based on a watery insertion. The proposed route is about 60 miles but it is anyone's guess how long that will take in post apocalyptic Seattle (IMG:style_emoticons/default/ork.gif)
