Hi all,
we've all been playing pink mohawk games at some point in SR, or at least yearned to. Now, as we all now, pink mohawk deviates from standard SR in the fact that the Rule of Awesomeness should always trump common sense.

That said, what are your custom rules for it? Mine are the following:
-Cyberware scanners don't exist outside of medical facilities
-SIN scanners have to beat the rating of the fake SIN as a threshold
-We play in LA (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)
-Healing, whether by medikit or spell, is instantaneous
-Rocket Jump: As a complex action, detonate an explosive at your position. Everyone around you, including yourself, takes the damage of the explosive. If you remain conscious after this, you can make a jump check, with an effective Great Leap rating equal to the DV of the explosive.

that's a common house rule and considered the way it should work and been written. Scanner Rating x2 (fake SIN rating)

For some reason my group doesn't like cyberware scanners either.

How does it work for vehicles?

Only subjects normally entitled to make jump checks can benefit from rocket jump.

Which would rule out every vehicle except for those anthropomorphic cyborg drones, AFAIK.

If you have a Ramp, you gain additional flight height/distance?
we all know that something has to explode under/behind a vehicle that's driving of a ramp . .

I lament the 2008 Knight Rider series being cancelled, as I really wanted to see a Knight Industries 2000 versus Knight Industries 3000 fight. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Not to mention a few other ideas I had... Yeah, I'm a fanboy. I think being here despite having wanted to play Shadowrun since '92 proves that enough.

KITT is surprisingly Pink Mohawk, however...

GMed for a 9 month campaign after I said "F*** IT!" and got the 4th Edition rules and took a year or two to find a group. Then fell apart. Me, not the group, that came later.

That's it, that's all.

No, that was the Knight Industries 4000, which was a vastly inferior model.

The 3000 was a Black Shelby Mustang that didn't come with a "Hoopty Mode". (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif) Yeah, the "Gadgetmobile" option kind of made me go WTF as well, but was an interesting touch.

i thought the new black one was the 4000?
ok, my bad.

In a one off run, we found a hidden away old storage for prototype vehicles.
a black sports car, a black sports motorbike, a black military helicopter, a black sports boat.
and a big black truck capable of transporting one or two of the others, depending on choice.
yes, basically, we found kitt, streethawk, airwolf/blue thunder, thunder(thunder in paradise) and goliath/the rolling command center from the old knight rider series.

Oh, very nice! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

I was planning on having my group be hired via the Matrix to steal a "Prototype Automobile", only to find out it's a 1982 Pontiac Trans-Am. Turns out, the AI living in the high-level Pilot System that the owner had put in as part of a KITT-Fan Club conversion, the AI had hired them himself ("I am not an it, and I most certainly am not female. I like the curves on those other cars too much to be anything but male." "Or a lesbian." "Hm, possible. No, male.") to get away from all the drooling fanatics that kept pawing him.

I figured he'd be an interesting contact as he drove from town-to-town righting wrongs. A sort of a combination of the original Knight Rider and The Littlest Hobo.

Yeah, we liberated the AI in the sportscar the Johnson told us to get.
And imagine the grinding of teeth figuring out we could only take the sportscar OR somethig else using the transporter . .
But we basically hosed the Johnson(and the GM) by telling letting the AI decide what it wanted to happen to itself.
Turns out the johnson was bulletbroof, but not car-proof.
we got the gloiath-transporter and now have, basically, in SR3, a pilot/rigger AI as a contact. in a combat ready vehicle.

If Gun-Fu is insufficient, start using Car-Fu.

And damn but I wish I could play. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/frown.gif)

Can't do PbP, just can't, no matter the game.

I also find IRC exhausting for some reason. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/frown.gif)
