[6E] Stormy Waters: Dodging Damocles

BREAKING NEWS
Due to some pbp drop off I am opening this back up for recruitment of budding 6E players to join the 3-4 players that are active... we're at a good point in the story where joining now wouldn't be a big problem so if at all interested please give me a shout or post directly into the OoC thread here: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthread.php?t=226024

GAME NAME[6E] Stormy Waters: Dodging Damocles

GAME SYSTEMShadowrun Sixth Edition

GAME THEMEShining a light into the belly of (my version of) Sixth World London

GAME TONEThis one will be a little more Mohawk than my usual Mirrorshades leanings

GAME PLOTDodging Damocles will principally be set in SR London with the addition of ‘London Below’ which is very much inspired by Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere. I’ve used this setting in previous SR games and I think it adds an interesting dimension to the SR universe. It’s possible that there will be a metaplanar excursion too but I’ll save info on that for later. The PCs will likely hail from Seattle so no knowledge of the alternate setting is required, and perhaps an advantage. There is a shadow write-up that will be made available ‘in-game’… warning, this place is not for the faint hearted! It might not be as bleak as first impressions would have it but it makes some of the worst of the Seattle barrens look like a delightful picnic spot!



 




Everything will be linked together in my Stormy Waters timeline which has played out here on RPGx in Free Seattle, Dark Nights and Tangled Threads

CHARACTER CREATIONStandard priority generation, although I am happy to accept Sum-10 provided only one Priority A choice is taken. If you want to use Life Paths that’s fine but I find it harder to vet characters that way. Previous PCs may join us from other games so there may be some additional ‘balance’ karma for new PCs so that I don’t have to adjust opposition power levels to account for build differences… I always try and give individual PCs their time to shine!

I've created (with a lot of help) an Excel character generator for SR6 which can be downloaded from here: <<CG6.xx>>. It’s a WIP and I regularly put out updates as new source info is added and bugs are discovered.

Our Obsidian Portal campaign page is here: Stormy Waters. There is lots of useful information here, contacts, locations etc but I am slowly shifting more info over to RPGx which will be stored in the Tangled Threads page.

RP & Posting ExpectationsWe all have busy lives so I don't expect a fixed number of IC posts but please consider whether you can maintain the moderately gentle pace of 1-2 IC posts per week? Any less and the game is likely to falter. Thankfully RPGCrossing tracks who has posted in each thread so there’s no need to do so manually (see rewards below)

SR can be pretty bleak, and I tend to run it that way (with enough rays of hope to prevent it becoming too depressing). That should still be possible within the constraints of the PG13 rating for this platform, let's keep descriptive violence without too much gore. Themes will be aimed at an adult audience and I try to sometimes present players with uncomfortable moral dilemmas but that is hopefully what you are signing up for.

We’ll use SR swear words, eg drek and frag(ger) rather than their Anglo Saxon equivalents.

DICE ROLLSMostly for the benefit of any non RPGCrossing veterans the coding is

(dice=what the roll is)xxd6smch5(/dice) using square brackets

Please spell out how the pool is created (eg. Agility x + Firearms y + Smartlink etc), in a roll any Wild D will be considered to be the first dice rolled, any D deductions (for whatever reason) will come off the back of the roll.

HOUSE RULESThese are all listed in the Tangled Threads post <here>, please review them as there are some that deal with character generation.

Each approved player will be given a personal thread on the Tangled Threads page which can be used in place of Personal Messaging to discuss any of the Stormy Waters games (as PM inboxes tend to fill up fast and are harder to search).

STORMY WATERS REWARDSBecause pbp is notoriously slower than tabletop play I run a reward system slightly different to that advocated by the CRB which pays out based on sessions played.
  • Worked up character sheet in the PCs thread +1 karma
  • Character Sketch +1 karma
  • Character Physical and Social Description +1 karma
  • Character Background +2 karma
  • Runs pay out nuyen as ‘normal’ and are subject to the negotiating skills of the PCs
  • 1 karma and 1 Mark is given per 2 IC posts (or contacts and locations write-ups)
    Every Mark is worth approx. 2K nuyen…these are intended for big ticket items ie decks, cyber, vehicles, foci… GM approval is required and it is likely that these will pay out between active runs. Karma can be spent in downtime within the run if it seems reasonable to do so. Gaining an extra point of firearms may be reasonable, suddenly learning Latin from scratch might be a bit of a stretch!

Mighth have an idea or two tucked away for something like this. Let me know if you want more.

Personal Data
Description: Sean has the look and swagger of someone who just stepped out of a Swashbuckler novel, and intentionally cultivates the image of a romantic hero. Handsome, charming, and always has a smirk on his face like he's on the inside of a joke. Has a surprisingly calculating head on his shoulders and often tries to make plans. You might have actually seen him before as he has an excellent singing voice and will often put all of his image and skills to use on causes he believes in. *Somehow* has managed to maintain at least some idealism despite the horrors of the world around him.

My TaleÓró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile,
Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile,
Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile
Anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh.


"Ye heard of Tir na Nog, yeah? The nation formerly known as Ireland that is now selling itself as an idyllic homeland for Elves. Oh, they paint a lovely picture - do nae get me wrong. I love my island, the land, the history. And it is true, about a third of us are Elves. There's a part they don't exactly advertize though."

Tá Gráinne Mhaol ag teacht thar sáile,
Óglaigh armtha léi mar gharda,
Gaeil iad féin is ní Frainc ná Spáinnigh,
Is cuirfidh siad ruaig ar Ghallaibh.


"Ever hear of the Tuatha Dé Danaan, or the Danaan mór? The long and the short of it is, my home is now ran by a bunch of Tyrannical C#$%s. We have a Caste system now in Tir na Nog, did ye know that? On the top is the elves of the 8 rich families of the Danaan Mór, then the elves of the next 15 or so rich families, then any other elves, then *actual dog-shite*, then non-elves. And they were surprised when this had the IRA roaring back."

A bhuí le Rí na bhFeart go bhfeiceam,
Mura mbeam beo ina dhiaidh ach seachtain,
Gráinne Mhaol agus míle gaiscíoch,
Ag fógairt fáin ar Ghallaibh.


"Oh aye, I know I'm an Elf. But I saw - I saw neighbors ripped from their centuries-old family homes because they weren't elves and some rich aristo thought they could use the land better. I've *seen* Camps being built for Orcs. I do nae care what the Tuatha Dé Danaan say - not on *my* island, not in *my* name. So I did what any self-respecting Irishman would do. I signed up to Fight. I helped lead some of the largest protests in Tir na Nog's history, I sang for the crowds and marched them forward, showed the Danaan mór that not even other Elves were going to stand for what they were doing.

And, we lost. Barely managed to get off the island before getting arrested. I'll be back, one day. But for now - I guess it's with the Shadows for me.
"

Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile,
Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile,
Óró, sé do bheatha 'bhaile
Anois ar theacht an tsamhraidh.


RP Sample - Why I'm Not Allowed In Tir Na Nog Anymore"Thank ye for coming out tonight. My name is Sean O'Magauran, and tonight is a special night in more ways then you can think. Tonight we're not just standing against the Tuatha Dé Danaan for helping a murderer walk free to 'Preserve Elven Culture', something they almost literially made up on the spot - but there's something else too. Tonight was also the anniversery of the last Free Democratic Election in our Country. My name is Sean O'Magauran, I was born in 2011 back when Elves were called Spike Babies and I say Nae More! This Country, is for All of Us.

So this song is going to sound a wee bit familiar. Back then, the greatest threat to our Liberty was the English. I thought, times have changed - and the song can change to meet that too. You'll figure out the words, join in when you do.
"

The song that comes out starts slow but builds quickly, if in power first. It's not long before he's throwing punches with his voice. Almost literally.

I was born on a Dublin street where the royal drums did beat,
And those loving Tuatha feet they tramped all over us,
And each and every night when me Da came home tight
He'd invite the neighbors outside with this chorus:

Come out ye wee Danaans, come out and fight me like a man,
Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders,
Tell them how the IRA made you run like hell away
From the green and lovely lanes of Killashandra.

Come let us hear you tell how you slandered great Parnell,
When you thought him well and truly persecuted,
Where are the sneers and jeers that you bravely let us hear
When our heroes and our Freedom executed?

Come out ye wee Danaans, come out and fight me like a man,
Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders,
Tell them how the IRA made you run like hell away
From the green and lovely lanes of Killashandra.

Come tell us how you slew them poor Ork Boys two by two,
When you took their guns and they had naught but bows and arrows
How you bravely faced each one with your 16-pounder gun,
And you frightened them poor children to their marrow.

Come out ye wee Danaans, come out and fight me like a man,
Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders,
Tell them how the IRA made you run like hell away
From the green and lovely lanes of Killashandra.

Well the day is coming fast and the time is here at last,
When each yeoman will be cut aside before us,
And if there be a need, sure our kids would sing, "Godspeed,"
With a verse or two of this fine chorus:

Come out ye wee Danaans, come out and fight me like a man,
Show your wife how you won medals down in Flanders,
Tell them how the IRA made you run like hell away
From the green and lovely lanes of Killashandra.


Funny, how they ignored him at first - but by the time the song was done the Protest seemed to hve doubled in size and was about one wayward spark away from a full-blown Riot...

BIO
left-aligned image
Sean likes to think he wasn't just any Elf, but he was actually one of the first of this age. Born in late 2011, Sean might look mid-20's but he's actually pushing 70 and he's seen a lot. He remembers when his home was called Ireland and it wasn't perfect but it wasn't - this.

He remembers when Ireland became Tir na Nog. A supposed homeland and safe place for the Elves of the world to come. It sounded good, at first - and Ireland was as good a place as any. Something about the country, it produced a lot more Elves then average. At least a third of the population at this point. He remembers it, but it snuck up on him when things started getting darker. He remembers when they declared that there would be no more elections. He remembers the rise of the Tuatha Dé Danaan and the Danaan Mór - the rich 20 or so families that took over Ireland using the little quirk of them producing more Elves then average as a justification.

He remembers when they officially declared that Non-Elves were Second Class citizens. Sean O'Magauran was a minor celebrity in Tir na Nog, one of the first Elves of this age and he had used that to kickstart a music career. He tried to keep things as non-political as he could but then he *saw* something he shouldn't have. One of the construction projects, the building of what looked like it was going to be a Concentration Camp for Orcs. No. That was enough.

Really, the Tuatha Dé Danaan should not have been surprised that their policies had quickly led to the rebirth of the IRA. Maybe they weren't surprised, maybe they just didn't care. They certainly started to care when Sean O'Magauran, a fairly popular musician and one of the early Spike Baby Elves came out as one of their biggest critics and an open supporter of the New IRA. And he was good too, even intentionally invoking imagery of legendary Irish Folkhero Fionn mac Cumhaill in what could have been a proper Rebellion.

Unfortunately, the Tuatha Dé Danaan managed to crush the fight for Freedom before it could properly begin and Sean only barely managed to avoid being caught, in effect he's been Exiled from Tir na Nog and into the Shadows. But if you think this is the last the Tuatha Dé Danaan will hear from Sean O'Magauran...

Description
Selma Morrison started off as the daughter of two wage Mages for Ares in their Biotech department. They focused on creating combat drugs for Mages that could help with drain or boost their abilities. The research was going well. So well that an unknown competitor blew up the research lab with her parents in it. Selma was only 14 at the time and spiraled at the news of her parents death. Ares took guardianship of her especially since she was tested to have extremely potent magic in her blood. She did not have the high intelligence of her parents, so she became a lab rat being subjected to the fruits of her parents unfinished research. The young girl suffered so much pain down to her very essence.

Years went on and an interesting side effect started to result from the experiments. By trying to enhance her magic, they inadvertently strengthened her ability to disrupt and cancel it. An unfortunate side effect was damaging her mind to the point where she was in constant pain anytime she tried to summon a spirit able to hold its own form. This meant that a spirit had to possess somebody in order to exist on the material plane. One morning as she lay in bed almost comatose from the drugs they had injected into her, she had enough willpower to summon a spirit to possess the nurse about to give her the daily sedative. It bought her the time to regain her wits and affect an escape. All magical wards and spells were absorbed then redirected into massive force to shatter physical barriers while her spirits possessed her pursuers to make them fight against their comrades. She escaped into another world just as cruel and unforgiving.

Selma had to lay low to avoid Ares patrols. Her magic allowed her to live off of the mana around her and evade capture. That’s when she met Planesender, a male in his mid-twenties of Native American descent wearing a stylish but casual suit featuring a mix of Wiccan and Amerind symbols integrated into the stitching and accessories. He used his magic to hide her from Ares and bring her to Fall City. There she met those who would become her sisters, Wiccans that were primarily healers but often dabbled in “alternate” forms of medication and escapism. The drugs they used calmed her down and eased the pain in her head. The street witches emphasized the study and use of the mana that flowed through all humanity. Selma grew up to be one of the best street witches her coven had ever known. She took on the name Fashionista as she excelled in using magic to alter the physical fabric of one’s being and what they wore. Many Corp brats looking to have a big night out on the town would hire her to do their makeup and clothes with her own special touch. The money was good, so she put up with their pompous attitudes. Life was good until it was too good.

A lot of the coven’s income was from the sale and distribution of party drugs and sedatives. They were so good that their operations cut into the bottom line of the First Nations, who removed their business rivals in the fastest way they could when threatened. One day, the coven was enjoying a night of drinking and partying when the forces of the First Nations descended upon them in full force with the fury of a hurricane. Their magical and spiritual security at least made them not completely taken by surprise. The sisters retaliated like wolves trapped in a corner. Selma was able to keep the magical forces at bay for the moment, but the sheer firepower of machine guns and assault rifles were taking down her sisters one by one. Tasha, an adept, was able to get in close enough with her monowhip to slice off the hand of the lead mage wearing a black opal ring that from the astral blazed with power. Tasha spun in a roundhouse kick to send the hand flying toward Selma. That’s when she heard the foom foom foomof several grenade launchers sending high explosive grenades into the room. Planesender, who had been fighting alongside them raised a palm in Selma’s direction opening up a portal behind her. He pushed her through just as the explosions went off along with the painful screams of her sisters being obliterated. Part of the blasts torched her as she was flung through into the Metaplane of Dis.

Once again, she was alone with her family dead in a strange place full of horrors. This time though, she was mentally prepared to survive on her own. She took the ring off the mage’s dismembered hand and placed it on her own. The power of the ring was incredible and instrumental in giving her the magical ability to survive in the hostile city for a month in Dis time which was only ten months in Material Plane time. She survived, killed, and made allies in the city. The horrors she experienced were many and left her hardened to the plights of others. One day, Planesender found her in the city of Dis and was able to transport her back to the Material Plane. Ten months had passed which was long enough for the First Nations to believe that the Fall City coven had truly been wiped out with no survivors. She became one with the Shadows going on jobs for various Johnsons to make her way in the world. Living in Dis for so long made her cherish every moment, so that’s how she lived, in the moment.

Never really had a problem with it before in the ten plus years I've been running pbp... I try to tailor the run to the players (who inevitably will have varying post rates and karma awards) so you'd only be cheating yourself

If a post keeps the thread live a few sentences can be as powerful as an epic monologue!

I noticed this too. I just figured doing this too obviously could get you kicked. :P

right-aligned image


Description : Jamie is a slim woman of obvious Chinese descent with brown eyes and short black hair kept very short to keep it from being used against her in a fight. She has two thin scars on her jaw back near her right ear and another one up near her hairline on the same side. She carries her deck in a hip-pack at her waist and is almost always running an ARO. She relies on her left hand primarily for ARO interaction leaving her right hand free for a weapon.

She has decorative implant points back near each ear that she frequently loads with teal or purple LEDs. She keeps a series of cyber fetishes. She acquired a pair of catgirl ears which she pins to her jacket like a trophy. She has an exploded metal bullet casing crimped into fabric on her forearm.

She dresses for the environment. She prefers an Urban Explorer jumpsuit, but if she needs to slum it, she'll don a longcoat. Unless she needs to dress up, athletic shoes are included.

Description

An AmerIndian woman of middling height, jet black hair, and cybereyes that make her natural eye color a mystery for the ages. She doesn't seem to sport much in the way of cyberware, except for the telltale smartlinks and a fluidity and speed faster than normal for the unaugmented. There's something about the look on her face, the set of her jaw, or maybe the subtleties of her stance that exude the kind of toughness possess by those who have faced and survived a lot of situations that many would not survive. The scars interspersed throughout her body back up the image that this is not someone to take lightly.

Personal Data Character:Alysander Tailleur (pronounced Ah lee san d(r)e Tay ye(r))
(Sandy to English speaking friends; Lysandre to most)

Description: Lysander is a large athletic ork who obviously gets lots of sun and scrapes. Brown eyed with close cut light brown hair. Most would guess his height at less than it actually is. He is almost always in a bent kneed, shoulders forward stance. He speaks with in a guttural tone with many contractions and French pronunciations mixed in especially for words common to both languages when excited. (Example: Did‘jeh for Did you, Oohs-key for Husky, and Urgency for Emergency)
He is new to the shadows and works off-the-books primarily as his SIN doesn’t allow him to work outside the University of Seattle. He is a rough fellow but still hasn’t faced many decisions about what his limits are for the job.

Sheet
DATA
Name & Principle Alias Alysander Tailleur ''Arbalest''
Ethnicity & Metatype Caucasian Mixed Orc
Born 2058 Sex Male Height 6'5 Build Athletic
Nationality UCAS (CSA)
Description Stealthy Heavy
Race D Attributes A Magic E Skills C Resources B

BIO Lysander is from a part of the CSA that time seemingly forgot. Poor and sparsely inhabited with equal parts swampy bayous and rice paddies along the rivers and dry scrub and sorghum fields otherwise. Lysander’s family mostly hunted to supplement the paltry income from farm labor. Lysander’s stealth and accuracy let him work as a guide and he came to the attention of a football scout on a hunting trip.

Lysander went to school at University of Seattle (formerly University of Washington still called U-Dub by old timers) as a student athlete for football and track and field. He was known for his big hits, amazing pursuits and blown coverages. Few recognize him without helmet and pads on. Lysander failed to make many friends with his mumbling incomprehensible speech; and seems to put more value on his teams than his teammates do.

Lysander studied parazoology and worked as a student worker in animal control and “event security” (glorified ushers). He took up climbing and hunting in the mountains and rainforests of the Northwest with his freshman roommate John Weissberger. While there Lysander received Bioware treatments that are outside of the normal testing for collegiate events but that have rendered professional track out of bounds.

Lysander started working in the shadows helping control exotic pets that were not strictly legal. He has since worked off the books in pest control, catching food for exotic animals, and procuring rare animal parts for talismongers and herbalists. He has recently been accepted for grad school at University College London and is trying to gather money to be able to go. (Due to his just barely acceptable grades Lysander does not yet have work lined up as a TA or RA.) Pretty much anything to avoid going back to the CSA.

We have a face, mage, hacker and street sam. I don’t know that we’re missing anything per se. That said, I don’t see why you couldn’t join.

What do you like to play?

In my head I'm calling Sean more a Bard then a Face. :P

Gave Sean something a little more like a normal RP Sample, btw. A little.

Cool start Damionovich. Also, I am really impressed with everyone's writeups.

Is it possible to link an image from OneDrive? Tried and it did not seem to work. If someone knows how please send me a PM. ; )'
