FYI, let's use the same code color scheme as previously so:

"All discussion between characters are in RED"

>>> All electronic exchange are in BLUE, ideally with the >>> prefix

I think GREEN was used for inner thoughts / magical communication (with spirits)

“Waywalker may be crazier than my ex-girlfriend (and that’s enough crazy), but made the cop fraggers eat the dust! If there is a way around a border, he will find it.

I was born in the GeMiTo sprawl, the one with a fucking dragon that eats people. Life was difficult then, and I was more comfortable with machines than people. There is a long history of smuggling in Italy, due to all the borders. And as we say, “Done the law, found the catch”.
My grandfather lost his SIN, and all of my family when he goblinized in a Ork back in 2021. We were SINless from the very beginning of this word. How do we survived? As most people did, doing what we could. I became a shadowrunner in my twenties, after trying to work as a low-paid spider for a factory building. When the entire place was burned to the ground by runners, who was blamed? Me. It turns up that the factory building shared a side with a secret research lab of the same corp, the very objective of the runners. And they want my head because they think I'm guilty. Well, the runners offered me a year of wages and a lift to the Ruhr with all the corp's gear I could carry, how could I refuse?”
Where is a border, there is some way to pass it. And I’m going to be the one you call to do it.

Distinctive style: Fan of the Vandals, a combat biking team in the Rhein - Ruhr scene, Waywalker almost always displays their logo on his clothing. The long coat he wears was one of the actual clothes of Speed, art name of the team rigger.

The HIDE options in this forum is rather ugly, and thus not a perfect replacement for the "spoiler" we used in the previous forum. I would rather NOT use the OCC thread (like other people do) because I find utterly difficult to follow - unless you are ok to systematically add a link to the OCC entry is a related post. Something like that:

"Waywalker dodges barely the shot, before ducking for cover"

However, I do find it simplier when the rolls and technical stuff are simply part of the post. Maybe we can have a convention for that ? (maybe simply use italic for rolls and OOC stuff ?)
Fine by me. Let's just set the technical stuff at the end of the post, separated by a few ----------
That should do the trick. If we want to get fancy we can also set it in quotes so there is no chance of confusion.
Ok, I finally decided how to improve Rex during downtime:

41 Karma to play with:

Three new spells (Increase Logic (4R), Analyse Device (4R), Levitate (8R)) (15 Karma),
R3 Spell Focus (Sustaining, Manipulation) (6 Karma), (9R)
R2 Power Focus (12 Karma) (8R)
specialization (7 Karma)

With the aid of a spirit, Rex can boost his negotiation skill to 14

Spells take one day each to find and cost 2000 for the formula:

Increase Logic:
Negotiation: 13d6t5 5
Ava: 4d6t5 0

Analyze Device
Negotiation: 13d6t5 3
Ava: 4d6t5 1

Negotiation: 13d6t5 6
AVA: 8d6t5 2

3 days

R3 Spell Focus costs 9R 12.000 and one week to find (using a conjured Spirit to aid me with an untrained teamwork check):Teamwork assist Spirit: 5d6t5 1

7 days

Negotiation: 14d6t5 6
AVA: 9d6t5 4

R2 Power Focus costs 36000 8R and one week to find

Teamwork assist Spirit: 5d6t5 2
Negotiation: 14d6t5 3
Negotiation: 8d6t5 1

7 days

Learning spells
Spellcasting + Intuition=Spellcasting + Intuition: 15d6t5 6
12/6= 2 days to learn
Spellcasting + Intuition: 15d6t5 5
12/5=2,4 days to learn
Spellcasting + Intuition: 15d6t5 8 capped at 6 due to lodge rating
12/6= 2 days to learn

6,4 days

Bonding Foci 1 hour/force = 5 hours =0,21 days

Training as specialization
7 days

In total: 30,61 days or exactly one month worth biggrin.gif
Total Karma spent: 40
Total Nuyen spent: 50.000¥
Waywalker's Karma expenditure:
- 20 Karma: Edge 3-->4 (no time required)
- 14 Karma: Etiquette 2-->4 (4 days)
- 8 Karma: Pilot Ground Craft 3-->4 (4 days)

Money expenditure:
- Cerebral booster, Rating 2
negotiation: 14d6t5 3
avaibility: 12d6t5 6

I retry next week:
negotiation: 14d6t5 3
avaibility: 12d6t5 6

Third week:
negotiation: 14d6t5 8
avaibility: 12d6t5 4

In the first week, I also try to buy Increased myelination:
negotiation: 14d6t5 4
avaibility: 8d6t5 2

Total time: 1 month (three weeks for the gear + 1 for the karma)
Total NY: 75.000 spent, Waywalker has 20.000
Oh, by the way: Spoilers work in this forum just like normal
[ spoiler] [ /spoiler] (without the spaces) creates a normal spoiler tag

[ Spoiler ]
A short explanation on how to get the book by impersonation:

Step 1)
We search the La Fountain University data banks for a student that is
a) involved in magical studies with the same topics as the book
b) lives alone or is out of the country at the moment
c) is similar enough to Waywalker that he can disguise himself as the student in a pinch

Step 2)
Waywalker hacks the commlink of the student, gaining all relevant accesses and permissions to call up the archives and ask for access to the index

Step 3)
We either gain access to the index or learn who could access the index

Step 4)
We learn where the book is either by looking it up ourselves, or by forcing the individual through spirit influence or any other means necessary.
If necessary we obtain Laes to delete the coercion.

Step 5)
We break in and steal the book
Now would be an excellent time for Waywalker to spend some Edge... cool.gif
Do you mean to try again? I was thinking about it...
Reroll failures, yes

Unless, of course, you are up for slugging it out with the IC (but that might draw unwanted interest to our mission)
Just found this nice little gif

add some more body armor for belly and paw protection and it's a pretty close fit for Rex
Oh, I totally misunderstood that part of your post.
I thought, some entity from this realm flew out into the real world and now occupies Rex' body.
That's hilariously bad news for Rex: not only seems his shape changed body have reverted to it's natural form (and left him naked on a roof) but it's also now controlled by nanites.
Only his body has so bad stats, that the cfd entity now is stranded naked with to it useless magic gear on a roof in Paris.

I'll edit my post when I get home
