Hey everyone, have you every had strange characters in your games (either as GM or player) and just rolled with it and not kill them off in mission (unless they really deserve it).

This is mos likely a compilation of strange player habits or really strange PCs that have been created or have done as a spur of the moment.

I'll start with own of my own stories, with a PC called Misty.

Misty player is one of my friends who for the longest times I've known him hardly ever RP, and when we rolled up new characters for shadowrun he created a female PC. at first we thought it jus t a detail, but around the second or third job he did something none of us expected. Apparently, Misty had a personal collection of people she force fed roofies and take pictures of them naked. She would then proceed to dress them back up and put them to bed and leave a small amount of nuyen on their dresser or somewhere close by.

Mind you, most of my friend's characters have a personality of a rock and Misty was no different. The sudden RP from him was unexpected so we rolled with it, thinking it was a one off. Well turns out it wasn't as when he has a chance, he would do so to NPCs (that weren't our contacts or mission critical characters) and most recently to one of the other player. now all the other players (myself included) do not want to be alone with Misty and do not want to her to know where they live.

That's creepy.

Read my diary threads and you'll find too many to count, but Farm Boy and his obsession with Pineapples probably stands out.

Everything was about Pineapples. EVERYTHING. We joked that he was 5.95 essence cyberware, .05 essence Pineapple.
Rubic
I'm probably the strangest one out of my group, and mostly because I like interesting concepts.

- Mr. Farenheit, an over-the-top driver with a flare for the dramatic.
- PANic, an underage technomancer with a bright purple fro and an online persona with a fetish for disco (her Attack CF has her icon dancing).
- Nickles, a gnome mage/fashionista based off Edna Mode from The Incredibles.
- Red Queen, a roller-derby-inspired adept with a hard suit modded to include skates. Does distractions or heavy work. Plays violin in a corporate orchestra and has a dayjob as a janitor to qualify for it.
- P'0 (stands for Patient Zero, pronounced "p-Oh"), a former Ballerina with a cybernetic arm, two stabilized cases of HMHVV (carrier quality twice) and a decided lack of morals (she counters that with subtlety). She likes assassinations by way of transmission (I know this can easily turn around and bite her in her infected behind).
Setzer (yes, FF6), a hacker/rigger with a pirate fetish, and "hot for teacher" at his college.

I know, tame by comparison to some of you out there. My really unique characters tend to get vetoed.

Fantastic! Glad that I inspired someone smile.gif
Shortstraw
A friend played what was essentially the cyberpunk version of a 70's pimp - purple suit, afro, cane but with a massive cyberarm (for pimp slaps of course).

I played a nine year old cyberlogician, a face who's goal was to put together an interplanetary space blimp (and succeeded I might add), Clippit that irritating "assistant" from office (now an AI and scourge of matrix users of poor spelling/grammar everywhere), Rimmer from quarantine as a possession mage, an extreme streaker, a dementist (run as a twisted psion), and a 74 year old human big game hunter (with a PJSS of course).

Indeed... Creepy as hell. eek.gif
The Wrestling Troll
We had the heroic RACOON!

A mage with the mentor spirit of a Raccoon (rulewise rat) named The Great Tanouki.
Everytime he wasn't sure what to do he threw around some animal bones or rocks and held a seancÚ with his mentor spirit to find the right path.
If that wasn't "freaky" enough, the mighty Raccoon was a cleptomanic bastard. Everytime he stole something, he left something of equal value behind as a trade (well equally "emotional value").

So he stole the novacoke of our teams psycho addict Ganger and replaced it with a bag of nuts ...

Haha that's awesome, had a Raccoon shaman who did that too in 3rd, 4th and have remade him for Aria's tribal game here for 5th edition. It's a character from a series of SR novels, the only connecting tie between the novels is the raccoon shaman who is very powerful but is well, off, I say the least. Got to find my SR paperbacks sometime soon and go through them

Hmmm...

I am likely the one with some of the most odd concepts in our group...

The one that stands out the most is my Spider Changeling. He craves human contact, but has a hard time obtaining it because he is a freak from the Comet. He looks like a humanoid Spider (8 Limbs, Spider features, the whole shootin' match). He is a B&E Specialist with No Magic. Wears a very heavy cloak to conceal his features (and is in fact obsessive about concealing his features) when he does manage to make it to the fringes of society. He does have a few friends, and is obsessive about keeping them, going to great lengths to protect them. Sucks that most of the teams he runs with try to kill him once they discover what he is. frown.gif

We had a character who was a Dexter inspired serial killing Shadowrunner - who eventually got caught with a body in the trunk.

Bandit!

I think my favorite is a buddy's Street Sam, who went by the name of Shakedown. He had a modded-to-hell AK-97 that was his baby, and had shot teammates for touching it before. His life goal was to set off a nuclear blast at some point. He scared the shit out of the other PCs, but they put up with him because he was an insanely good mayhem machine and totally reliable on the job despite his thrill-kill tendencies.

My favorite moment was during an infiltration. The team had armed themselves with Narcoject weapons to make a silent entry into a corp enclave. Cue Shakedown cornering a poor bastard of a janitor in a hallway, and cracking the entire table up. He's got the guy pinned to the wall, already stunned from another player's shots... and is giving me (the GM) this wild-eyed thousand yard stare. He mimes raising the gun, and says, in a perfectly calm voice; "I have Kamikaze in this."

He then shoots the janitor four or five times and moves on.

A couple minutes later, alarms everywhere as cameras have caught the janitor tearing apart a security guard with his bare hands. Team got away clean, corp blamed their sabotage on a druggie run amok.

Heh... One of the Dumpshock Artists (Squinky) did up a pic for him.
All hail the Might Squinky. smile.gif
