You'd be playing yourself. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)

Or have a character that has the same handle. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

It's really a two fold thing.
1) A brief write up of your handle as a character in the Dumpshocked Column of the Dumpshock Datahaven. For example, Redjack was my first shadowrun character. He retired in 2nd edition as an accomplished initiate grade mage.

Redjack
Description: A hermetic mage shadowrunner in and out of the shadows since 2050.
Expertise: Hermetic magic, summoning, metaplanes, initiation & enchanting. To a lesser degree: dragons and business.
Posting style: Matter of fact with a diversified vocabulary. Can be witty, depending on his mood. Sometimes states the obvious and will admit if he's wrong, but digs in if he's right.

2) Editors and content creators of the Dumpshock Datahaven may use any Dumpshocked Character (ergo: one which the owner has provided a write up) as a commentator in Dumpshock Datahaven artices.

Example:
QUOTE (Redjack @ Extract from an upcoming DDH article)
Six months ago Ronin was linked to the Jefferson airport incident.

That was you? *applause* That was an impressive job.
Zap

I still want to know how your team got from Tarislar to Everett with a six-figure bounty on your heads and every gang in the city with your picture?
Critias

Mistaken identity.
Ronin

That's my line...

Don't worry, I got your point. I was merely thinking about what would happen if DDH would be populated by characters who really are "us" as we present ourselves at DS...that would lead to some interesting (and long) shadowtalk. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Anyway, since I have no character named Sengir, I'll just rechristen my favorite.

Heh, I've never had one called Brazilian Shinobi either, but I had one called Kage (yes, I know, everyone and their mother had a character called Kage) and Dente Amarelo (Yellow Tooth, a jaguar shapeshifter).

But Kage fit the bill as a decent shadowtalker.

Here is a lista of shadowtalkers me, Canray, hermit and many others created for the now sunk alt.War project

Sometimes I forget how crazy a nutbar Truth is. Then he pops into my head spouting off things and I remember.

...

Damnit, now I want a tinfoil helmet. Not that those work anymore, the spy satellites that read your mind can get through the tinfoil if they've been manufactured after 1982.

That's exactly the type of reaction you're supposed to have from Truth.

There's also DrugHunter that I didn't include in that list, and am hitting myself for forgetting. I have to go through my old notes to find all my old Shadowtalkers.

Real person vs Jack Pointer.... I'm torn on who to put my money on. On the one hand, the Real person is real. On the other hand, the Jack Pointer literally can't die, so it's hard to lose a death match.

I'm not 100% sure, but I think that the Black Mamba at Dumpshock account was created before the JackPointer account was. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Got a new twist. As I'm working through the second issue of the Dumpshock Datahaven, I don't want to use Jack Pointer's for the commentary, I want to use Dumpshockers - Preferably members of the Dumpshocked or Admin groups. So here's the rules:

1) Use your real handle, so one submission per member.
2) Description of you as a character. If your handle is not based upon a character of yours, what character would you create for your handle?
2) Give me a brief description of your areas of expertise. You cannot be an expert on all things.
3) Give me notes about your posting style.
4) Allow any submitter or editor of the Dumpshock Datahaven full creative license.

Example:
Stahlseele
Description: Human street samurai/mercenary/bodyguard from Germany, operating worldwide, but most of the time in north america and Germany.
Expertise: Germany, especially the ugly shadowy side. Weapons and Gadgets, Urban Brawl and Combat Biking.
Posting style: Matter of fact, kinda flat, sometimes sarcastic. Tries to take most things not too seriously.

Basically, think of him as Edward Blake / the Comedian from Watchmen, only with Cyber and Bioware worth more than a permanent high luxury lifestyle . .

Hmmm. Seems as if my PayPal account is the cheap, free kind that doesn't work fast. I'll have money up in a few days and will transfer then.

Update: With the funds to date we have purchased the upgraded software for the board and I made a dry run on upgrading the board in a test environment. The software upgrade went well and took about two hours. In order to actually do this against the production board we will need to:

1) Migrate support for the spoiler tag
2) Rebuild the skin, pretty much from the ground up.
3) Test with community testers.
4) Fix issues from test
5) Schedule and implement the upgrade.

Given personal work schedule and work on the DDH, I expect steps 1 & 2 to take the next couple of months. Once we get ready to test we will open the test site up to the Dumpshocked group. Once the testers have a general consensus that we are g2g, we will schedule and implement.

We have nearly reached our goal. I am thankful to all who have donated.

Edit: Misposted earlier. All of the European donations cleared last night and I double counted them initially.

Thanks to all who donated. Currently, the software upgrade is on hold given broken functionality found in testing. We will consider our options and keep you posted.
