Full Version: You as a Shadowrun character
Dumpshock Forums > Discussion > Shadowrun
Pages: 1, 2, 3, 4
Talia Invierno
If you were pulled out of your regular life and thrust into a shadow world, what kind of Shadowrun character would you be? (In today's world, I mean - no Matrix, no Awakening beyond what exists today, no 'ware beyond what exists today.) I know some of you are very familiar with various magickal systems. With what I know of current medicine, there's even a chance some of us may already have minimal cyber.

So take yourself, exactly as you are today. Translate that into Shadowrun stats: active/knowledge/language skills, edges/flaws, and all. Use as many build points as you feel appropriate to complete you as character.

I don't expect to see very many 6's at all grinbig.gif

Post the results!

(Btw - has anyone ever tried running a Shadowrun game using themselves as starting PCs?)

Does 'vagabond' fall under 'other'? And how many professional samurai do you really think visit this site?

Before Resources (which are probably 5 points, $20,000; a nice computer, some electronics, and a car worth about $350, plus a decent amount saved away) I'm a 67 build-point character. With Resources, 72.

I put magical type on the poll. I actually have used magick for creative private enterprise, in the urban hunter/gatherer department.

I've gone through this mental exercise before, and thought about playing me in campaigns. I noticed right away that I have a whole lot of skills in the 2 or 3 range, and just a few in the 5 or 6 range. I'm not properly min-maxed. smile.gif Aside from that, the magical stuff is awkward -- my experiences and "powers" such that they are don't fit cleanly into any of the SR buckets, but so be it. What is below is the closest fit I could envision that exists in SR rules.

I'm sure some people will take issue with these numbers, without even knowing me. I think highly of myself.

I'm going to take issue with you having a Fineblade. I sincerely doubt the tech for those is around yet.
The only thing I'm going to ask you to back up is Intelligence.

~J

edit: your BP total as given there is 171 before Resources, give or take about four depending on how accurately I remembered edge/flaw costs and whether or not I caught all skills above linked attribute.
krishcane
Heh. Fineblade is just the closest thing in the rulebook, yeah. A medium-length sword-like blade. Too big to be a knife, too small to be a sword. But it's nothing fancy, so sure, it's no Fineblade.

As for Intelligence.... back it up? With what? Can't you feel the smartwaves emanating through my posts? smile.gif

Ah, fair enough, but the style I did was the Ninjutsu style of use. Not gonna say I straight-out learned Ninjutsu, I just learned the unarmed and armed combat of it.
nezumi
I was rather surprised that a computer geek did take common sense!! In my experience, we seem to live in our own special world. Twice this week my wife got upset with me because I didn't know something which, apparently, everyone knows (but can't explain).

As long as we're bragging about old computers, throw on:
Epson T-1000 Dot Matrix Printer
286 Laptop with cord, 2 batteries incapable of holding charge
and
big, shiny, 2.4GHz AMD (WinXP)
400MHz IBM w/ no HD at all (I swear I put it on the bookshelves...)
A lot of really expensive equipment my boss keeps giving me to take home that I promptly accidentally break.

They're not bogus at all. They're a very accurate indicator of raw processing power, memorization ability, etc.

Adept powers and metamagic aren't all that 'magical' in nature (initiate grade 4 is a crock, but making myself a magician adept grade 4 was the only way to get the suitable metamagics) - it's simply part of how I've trained my mind...I could put down 'Magical Power 1' and some skill, since I have dabbled in actual magic of a few traditions.

And that's it. 23 Karma total with BeCKS V2, you could get 18 of me for the price of one starting shadowrunner. 29 or 31 BP depending on whether you can buy Language skills with Knowledge skill points.

The 7 in will power because I have a real real long patience and can put up with a lot of mental abuse, some thing I cant stand but am able to control it with a large degree of control. As for the stuff I own, it is constantly changing, getting new stuff and selling this or that so listing the stuff I own would kinda be pointless. I have a car, but the people that smogged it and trashed a cylinder head, then the slave cylinder gave out on the break system. So tend to drive my dads GMC 1500 pick up.

[Edit]Been thinking for a while and the six intelligence really does not fit, I have changed it to a more reasonable 5. And for more reasons why a willpower of 7, I have a father that can beat the dead horse better then anybody else I know. I always used to crack under it, but now I can "Filter" it out very well, and actually yes and can ignore a lot of very distracting thing aka "Sexy Women." I have on many occasions beat my teachers at mind games, I get very stubborn when I don't want to do something. I am also not very empathic to other unless I know them, one time me and a group of friends decided to taunt him when he called asking where we were by saying we where at so and so house. When it finally hit him he came over to the house we where at and balled his eyes, no matter what the others said I would not comfort my brother. My excuse was "He should have gotten the point when we where not at the other houses".[/Edit]

I cannot explain the adept powers, I could only give information on how I see myself and what I do. I feel that nothing I described is so unbelieveable that it would be unreasonable and I also beleive that anyone could do any of these feats.

You do know that dropping acid doesn't count as perceiving astral... right?

Kanada Ten the Factory Drone: 72 at 10 points resources; you may be closer to 67 though.

SnowRaven: 134, not going to try to account for Initiation; work out how much more that might add if you want

Austere: 23 points. Now challenging Watcher Spirits for least-expensive FoF bonuses wink.gif

Hero: 135. I accidentally forgot to copy your total, so when I pasted it came out 23. Now that was an odd double-take.

Siege: 58, assuming 20k Resources .

Tanka, if you ever want to come watch me play Quake, I will demonstrate that I validly have a 6(12) on Quake Level Area Knowedge (The Very End of You) wink.gif
I might not beat you, probably won't, but I will control the level out from under you while you crush me smile.gif

Me no play Quake. Me no have PC to handle requirements. Me PC go boom if me try.

I'm more or less referring to all the people who see themselves as having 6 Int/6 (Or 7) Wil with nothing to back it up.

People tell me I'm fragging smart, but I only put myself at a 4 because that's how I see me. I know people smarter than me, and they only put themselves at 5.

As for Wil... If you've got 7 Wil, you can look at a girl with Cha 6 while she's stark naked and dropping hints like mad and still tell her no.

I have to agree. I have been evaluated to have more brainpower than 99.9997% of the rest of the human race, and I know I'm not throwing six dice for Perception tests.
More BP totals soon.

Postscript: That number equates to a 150 IQ on the WASI version of the test, for those wondering how I got it.

Edit: tanka, the char-6 naked girl dropping hints: I can turn her down. It's a custom edge: mostly asexual. Comes in handy now and then biggrin.gif

Digital Heroin, that was your 64 up there in that edit.
