Degausser
Just a GM resource for all of you GMs out there. I was kinda not happy with the lackluster grouping of thugs presented in the base book (YES, yes, I know I could change their names and make Halloweeners into the Rusty Stelettos), so I decided to make up a few Thugs of my own, feel free to use them. Each thug group was based (pretty heavily) on existing thug groups, so I know their about equal in abilities (They might be slightly more powerful). But changing some skills around and making some different concepts could really help out a game, especially if you don't want your Profession Rating 1 Rent-a-cops lobbing Molotov Cocktails.

Profession rating 1
LOS ALAMOS 20K THUGS
More ready and combat-capable then their Humanis goon squad counterparts, they are nonetheless still realativly low on the profession rating, being composed mostly of trigger happy racists and fearmongers. Many of them have some special skill.

CUT RATE MERC
Since the dawning of the 6th world, countries have destabalized terribly, and the market for geurilla fighters has increased exponentially, leading to some places to cut corners and go with less experienced mercs.

Nice. Though I think cyberware and bioware should be much more common, even down to the 20K thugs (Alamos is the elite of Humanis). A lot of people will have muscle replacement, attention co-processors, and so on (remember that body shops are in pretty much every mall, they have to be selling to someone). Also, I think the martial artists should both have a slightly higher willpowers, since part of the intent of martial arts is to improve self-discipline (and willpower makes up the stun track).

Vulture Torcher (Ork)
Professional Rating 0
B6 A2 R2 S6(9)* C1 I2 L1 W2 Ess4.02 Int4 IP1 CM11(12) Armor(4/6)

It's a Torcher's job to slice and dice the Vulture's prey using a welding torch in one hand and a cyberclaw in the other. Their single cybereye is usually located in the forehead, or an open socket if they've lost an eye (common occurance among Vultures), and features flare compensation along with the image link. The latter receives data only from a Spotter's commlink and is used to overlay schematics. Despite their brute strength and built-in weapon, Torchers are not fighters and, like most Vultures, flee at the first sign of conflict, leaving the Talons to cover their retreat.

Vulture Ferret (Dwarf)
Professional Rating 1
B4 A2 R2 S3 C2 I4 L4 W3 Ess2.88 Int6 IP1 CM10 Armor(2/4 Insulated)

Mechanics and technorats, Ferrets deal with the more delicate (and more valuable) scavenging. They are also charged with biological salvage, which they approach with the same mad tinkering ingenuity that they apply to hardware. A Ferret's cybersuite is part tool kit and part medkit, with creative use of many utensils required to fulfil both roles. Providing maintenance for much of the Vulture's eccelctic ware also falls to them.

Vulture Talon (Elf)
Professional Rating 2
B2 A4 R4 S2 C3 I3 L3 W2 Ess4.26 Int7 IP1 CM9 Armor(3/0)

Scout, lookout, and general soldier of the Vultures, a Talon is the eyes and ears of his Spotter. While the rest of the crew attack the carcass (be it building, broken down bus or the bloody remains of a gang war), he finds a roost from which to watch and listen for the first hints of danger approaching. With tricked out ears and eyes, it's a pretty good bet that he spots you before you spot him.

Vulture Gorilla (Troll)
Professional Rating N/A
B8(12)* A2 R2 S9(13)* C1 I1 L1 W1 Ess0.10 Int3 IP1 CM12(17) Armor(2/2)

Galumphing around on their cyberknuckles, these hulking machines serve mostly as biological backpacks and carry the bulk of the Vultures' haul. Fitted with skillwires and personafix, gorilla length cyberarms, powerful legs and an extra-large cybertorso, the Gorilla's life is little more than a caged animal, a workhorse. If commanded, they can fight, and with abandon, relying on their long arms and incredible strength to overpower and subdue threats. This tactic is used almost exclusively for critter attacks or ambushes. Note: a fully loaded Gorilla takes a -2 dice pool on all physical and combat skills.

Vulture Spotter (Human)
B A R S C I L W E Int CM

Acting as the leader and brains, the Spotter is also the de facto hacker. Maintaining the Vulture cell's cloud network, running appraisal knowsofts for the ferrets, managing the AR schematics for Torchers, and skillsoft setup for Gorillas, along with monitoring the image and sound feed from Talons are all tasks of the Spotter. To help ease the burden, they're fitted with an extra-large brain.

Vulture Hawk (Dwarf)
B A R S C I L W E Int CM

The public face and fence for the Vultures, Hawks don't sport much of the more insane cyber, preferring scavenged chrome over the homebrew, but they still display the more unusual mannerisms of the gang: polite, even unctuous and ingratiating, all the while looking at you like you're dinner on a platter. In a pinch, Hawks will spew toxic, hallucinogenic gas from their internal air tanks, and attempt to make a getaway in the ensuing confusion.

why does your merc lieutenant have hand razors? (alternate suggestion: autoinjector)

anyways, looks mostly right to me... i might expect to see the occasional set of cybereyes/ears in addition to what you have already, but since they wouldn't be at a 100% rate, i can see why you wouldn'y list them... i disagree with muscle aug and such... sure the facilities are there, but do you have 5,000 nuyen.gif just sitting around to pay for it?

Sure, but I usually spend it on things like snowmobiles, cars, vacations, home improvement, stuff like that... Then again, I don't go around beating up orks...
Degausser
To answer some peoples questions/comments:

Remember what the book says: you can insert your own 'specialists' with surprises to mix up the PCs.

You can always create your own squad of 'elite' Alamos 20k guys with a higher profession rating.

Bodyshops are great for cosmetic mods or datajacks or internal commlinks, but for real combat-enhancing cyber and bio, you are going to find that is more rare.

Hand razors are more intimidating, and have practical use outside of combat for cutting tasks such as breaking simple restraints.
QUOTE (Kanada Ten)
Also, I think the martial artists should both have a slightly higher willpowers, since part of the intent of martial arts is to improve self-discipline (and willpower makes up the stun track).

I would give the teacher a 4 will and 4 agility, but the students a 3 makes sense. Many people learn willpower/self control in martial arts, but I think the average student is well represented with a solid 3. Other people develop their willpower doing other things... bearing pain ina sport, or focusing on their studies instead of goofing off. Only those who have trained enough to teach are going to be above the norm consistently.
Degausser
Also note that those are Profession rating 1 thugs. Guys who know martial arts but aren't all that serious about it. These are not the world Warriors from Street Fighter, or some world-renowned sensei. These are the stats for the Cobra-Kai guys from the Karate Kid.

And why did I give the guy a hand Razor? Well, quite frankly it was because it cost .2 essense, and it seemed like a good emergency backup weapon. I didn't want the guy to have less than 5 essence (he is still Profession rating 2, not an all out street sam) and I thought it would be good for an emergency backup weapon that he couldn't loose.

I had it all done up pretty-like on a Notepad on the PC, using a blank character. I'll post my format for you to (possibly) use.

I honestly think the combat hackers here need better programs. They seem a little on the low side.

Here's a homebrew: my character in one campaign (dual GM'd by me and a friend. Every now and then we switch off who runs it, so when I run it he's NPC'd, when he runs it I play him. He has the same story) has Enemy and Nemesis for the mages of Saint Sylvester from the Christian Theurgy.

Here are a few more for you.

Remember, for those posting: Make sure to add a profession rating AS WELL as keeping them vagugely in line with what is presented in the book. A Red Samurai with 15/15 armor and 20 dice with his Katana isn't really a 'Thug' anymore, and is more like a Prime Runner. Remember, Thugs are supposed to be baddies that are (at earlier levels) easy to beat. Heck, I think my SRT Lieutenant is a bit too powerful, but I will let you make that decision. Don't get too carried away.

All I did was take the Grunts out of the core book and update their equipment. I would imagine the Tir Ghosts (freaking military covert-ops) would have things like Ruthenium Polymer light milspec armor, and Thermal damping. Their weapon would also have Chameleon coating so as not to break their ruthy-coating, and be a little quieter.

The Red Samurai were really easy to build... Red Samurai Armor (freaking has the same name as the unit, and is listed as being heavily used by them), same thing for the SCK Model 100... It's specifically noted as being heavily used by them. I think they should have somethng like the Nitama Optimum III, as it is a much better weapon (and the initial entry says Assault Rifle, not SMG), but I went with the flavor text. If they have 20 dice with their katana, that's not my fault; they have that in the core rulebook as well.

I changed no actual stats, nor did I upgrade cyber/bio (like they should have). I simply updated their gear.

EDIT: I'm only counting an 8 DP for blades on that Red Sammy..

Whoa whoa whoa, no need to take offense man. I am not sayin' they are bad builds or anything, just saying that they are not in line with 'thugs.' I am in agreement that the Ghosts and Red Sams are something to be feared, I am just saying that if you send runners against five or six of yours, they are far more likely to die then sending them against the Red Sams in the book. This is just a game balance issue.

Think of the Red Sam Thugs (Or the Ghost Thugs) in the book as the raw recruits, or footsoldiers, where as the guys who wear super armor or polymer armor as proven, veteran higher-ups. Those who have proven themseslves and thus get better gear. After all, Renraku is a company, and they aren't going to pass out that expensive super-armor to just anyone who graduates 'Boot Camp.'

I can see what you are trying to do with updates, but think about the metagame for a sec. The Base Lone Star thugs presented in the book use America L38 Light Pistols(4p, SA, 0RC). Now, according to Arsenal, the standard Lone Star weapon is the Ruger Thunderbolt (which does 5P, -1 AP, BF, 2RC) With a built in Laser Sight or smartlink. If I upgraded the Thug template, suddenly my guys that were balanced for 4p damage are doing 8p (with burst fire),
Now have AP of 1, and add 1 or 2 dice extra to hit. That is a big upgrade from what the thugs were.

Now, will I include the thunderbolt in my game? Of course. "Prime Runner" custom built Lone Star officers and Upgraded SRT thugs will use it, but I would think twice about upgrading standard thugs with better equipment because it might effect the metagame balance of those thugs.

IMO, book grunts were made for n00b GMs to prevent accidental TPK on the first run - and even then, they're all wearing kid-gloves. Once the player characters have access to Arsenal, handing a Thunderbolt to a Lone Star grunt is a natural progression just to keep them on par.

Updating the gear for your thugs simply makes your players have to use simple logic like "don't stand in the open and get shot" more frequently. We also have to keep in mind the thugs are described with generic weapons (for example, which assault rifle do Tir Ghosts have? The Ares Alpha, the FN HAR? An AK-97?) or generic armor (where is "medium security armor" [direct quote from Red Sammies] anyways?)

All I did was make the text line up with the fluff. If Red Samurai are now scary, or if Tir Ghosts are more dangerous, well, they were intended to be. That's what PR 5 and PR 6 mean - the hardest of the hard. Technically, there's no such thing as PR 7, so anything more dangerous than a PR 6 would be a Prime Runner/Team working off (more or less) standard BP builds.

There's a reason you don't mess with Renraku. The Red Samurai are it.

Flawless Victory!

You did with 2 sentences what I was trying to do with a (quasi) lengthy post. I tip my hat to you sir.

EDIT: Has anyone else noticed that the By-The-Book (heretofore BTB) Corp-Sec guards are completely untrained in the use of their standard-issue stun baton? I think this is where the RAI come into play (either change the baton to shock gloves or change the Unarmed to Blunt).
Degausser
Well, here is another batch. This will probably be my last for a while. I was just trying to add some flavor to the Thug Listings. If I feel inspired, or something comes up in my game, I will probably make more, but this should be fine for now.
Yet even more thugs.

Typical representation of civilian rioters from just about anyplace. From people from the night of rage to the looting that happened in Boston after the second crash, some people just loose their minds whenever the sociatal order is upset. It is important to remember that these are normally everyday citizens, and many posess job skills if they stop and use their brains.

How do you pound those out so fast! I've only got three done, sheesh. I was thinking about gathering these all up into PDFs for ease of printing and such. (Though, that's pretty ambitious for me. Still got to finish the Vultures, but I'm doing it, scan?)

How do GMs want them? Index Card sized, an 8.5 x 11 with relevant groups?

Either. I'm going to reformat them to my needs anyway.

Some really good ideas here, but why do you follow the idea from the book and add "Lieutenants" with slightly boosted combat stats to every bloody group? Even Ravers and Rioters? If I were you I'd drop them from those entries that are, when all is said and done, simply an unorganised bunch of people.

Not every Lieutenant has boosted Combat Stats. The Poser Shadowrunner Lieutenant sucks it up, and is a hacker, same with the Infiltration expert.

In reality, I include lieutenants because the book does them, and because they kinda make sense. Like you said, they don't make 100% sense, but they KINDA do. An angry mob that has one guy as a spokesman. A charismatic club DJ that can lead his guests. These things kinda make sense, especially in the cinematic campaign. They are there if you need them, if you don't like them, feel free to disregard.

Another set of thugs. Seeing as how most people feel that the Red Sams and Ghosts in the book are vastly underpowered, I felt like taking a crack at other profession rating 5 guys. Tell me what you think.

Profession Rating 5
Razorbois/Razorgirls
Some 'Shadowrunners' are only in it for the thrill. These guys aren't professionals by any stretch of the imagination, they simply cram as much Cyber into their bodies as they can afford, then find any excuse to go on a killing spree. The truly crazy thing about them is their complete lack disregard for their own personal safety.

Profession Rating 5

Triad High-ups
Just as Lone Star has their Special Tactics Team, and the UCAS military has their elite troops, the Chinese Triads have a vast network of super-loyal super soldiers for dealing with 'major' problems when deniable assests aren't feasable or loyal enough. These troops, almost all of them adepts, are the creme de la creme of Triad hit squads.

Triad Lieutenant
Incense Masters are full mages who specilize in using chinese philosophies like confucianism, taoism, and buhdism in order to run their lives and their triads. These well-respected men rely heavily on these ideas in order to run their everyday operations, and sabotaging them could lead to great moral destabilization. Weather their practices have any real value is of little consequence, their power is real.

Some think that, just because the megacorps run the world, that political governments are meaningless. The UCAS troops are there to prove them wrong, DEAD wrong. These troops are somewhat less trained than the Renraku Red Samurai, but would fare infinatly better under wartime conditions. The creme of the crop are the special forces. These guys are one of the few non-megacorp sponsored teams to consistantly win bouts of the Desert Wars program.

UCAS Special Forces Lieutenant
Every small detatchment of UCAS special forces has their own heavy weapons expert. These guys are by no means subtle, but they have enough firepower to take down a chopper or blow down a house. Usually reserved for hitting large targets, these guys are usuall big-framed so they can easily mount their heavy artilary.
