No worries, just wondering where that sat as I work things up a bit.

@Belfar

My initial concept is about using magic to augment unarmed combat, primarily by delivering touch spells. However, the mechanics behind this are less than complete. I found a good solution for this Here but wanted to be certain of what your take is before I venture down this mechanical road.


resolution
1) Declare / describe attack action
2) Start complex action with a contested unarmed combat roll.
3) If successful resolve spell casting, defender's resistance, drain.
4) Mark damage on defender and caster.
5) End complex action

Is Chummer 5A absolutely a requirement or will you allow Hero Lab?

I don't own HeroLab, but if I can easily view your character sheet then that's fine.

Runner Name: Terrence Wallace, AKA Bob-452
Metatype: Human
Intended Role: Combat Decker- Black Star affliated
right-aligned image


Personality: Bob-452 comes off as reserved. He isn't one to interject or offer any non-relevant information. While a dedicated member of a Neo-Anarchist group he actually finds most Neo-A's annoying and short sighted. He just wants to hold the world accountable for it's actions, not burn everything. He accomplishes this mostly by hacking their drek and making some nuyen off them. Which he may or may not share a (small) portion with the unfortunate/oppressed. Depends on his mood.
Persona: His persona is a blue skinned Human in a jumpsuit coloured a slightly different blue with yellow shoulder pads. His hair resembles metal dreadlocks that are brushed back and immobile. It has a yellow badge with a design that he changes often. Usually has triangles though.
 

Questionnaire:
How familiar are you with the Shadowrun setting and the 5e rule set?

I got into Shadowrun as a setting about 2 years ago. I have read many of the books, studied the rules and even watched some play online but unfortunately was unable to find a 5e game around me so I have limited actual play experience. Play with Chummer lots though.

Are you willing to use and be active in a private Discord server to discuss the game?
Absolutely.

How often do you think you'll be able to post?
2-3 times a week is pretty standard for me.

Posting Interest. Busy at the moment but will try back tomorrow to flesh out the application.
I would probably create a utility mage or summoner; a character whose magic is rather narrow.
This would reduce the degree to which I 'step on anyone's toes' as a character.

Runner Name: Rexim
Metatype: Orc
Intended Role: Street Sam (mostly just muscle/shooter)
Appearance: https://www.dropbox.com/s/im16wqqueg...murai.jpg?dl=0

Background: Rexim Orc Street Samurai: Former soldier, Rexim was trained as Infantry. He thoroughly enjoyed the team approach to overcoming obstacles, and in short order he rose to the squad gunner position. After surviving a brutal tour which included a deployment to the jungles of Central America, Rexim decided that maybe mechanized cavalry was a better future. He had a hard time leaving his team, they were the best and they all looked out for each other, but all military transfers have that cost.

Once in the Mech Cav, Rexim fit right in with the platoon of Armored Personnel Carriers where he was assigned. Unfortunately, after a night of hard drinking, he and his mates took one for a joyride. The commanding general did not appreciate the humor of a squashed sedan (it did look pretty funny!), so charges were filed, and ‘taking one of the team,’ Rexim took the blame, and then of course the brunt of the punishment.
Like many soldiers, his friends in the Cav had gang affiliations back home. After all, soldiering for some was just training for the streets later.. Those affiliations carried through to the prison where Rexim was sent, and he had to survive. While not one of them because he wasn’t “from” their area of Seattle, his standing among his friends preceded him into the prison, and they took care of him, so he wasn’t alone there.
Rexim forged bonds of friendship and loyalty there, and once he got out, it seemed natural for him to gravitate to an area of Seattle where he could be accepted. He affiliated with the gang there in Seattle, they were really just locals who banded together to protect their own turf from other gangs. For Rexim, it was more of an ‘association’ than becoming an actual gang member. They found him more useful as a contact and didn't initiate him. They felt he could do to be more helpful to them if he wasn’t branded as one of thiers.

He began using his developing street smarts to assist and advise them, but that didn't feed him, so he found his way by hiring out as a bodyguard or convoy escort, his favorites. While acting as a bodyguard, Rexim felt that special bond with his fellow guards, the team, and while in vehicles, it was still there like the MechCav duty. Each talking to the other, giving and getting some flack which always was personal and pointed but meant to save your ass, and occasionally having to actually save someone’s ass or have them save his. It was almost like being back in the Cav. The team, that's what the infantry preached, the Cav preached, and he believed it even now. He just needed the team.

Questionnaire:
How familiar are you with the Shadowrun setting and the 5e rule set? Fairly newb, to be honest. But I have the book on pdf and have time to do some reading/research.
Are you willing to use and be active in a private Discord server to discuss the game? Registered there, but dedicating a specific block of time is harder. I like pbp because of the flexibility of fitting my availability around other daily pulls on my time.
How often do you think you'll be able to post? I can post daily if something needs responding to, but a couple times a week is more guaranteed, especially if you want something that's going to take me time to look up before looking foolish in my post (one of my superpowers). I try really hard not to god-mode by overstepping other players ability to post their own parts in the scene, or by taking liberties with the GMs reality. (Assumptions seem to usually bite us in the ass).

Runner Name: Master 51 (Too clever by just over 1/2 and 1 card short of a full deck.)

Cover Name: Jacob Green. (Has not used real name for years; it is unlikely to come up in play.)

Metatype: Human
Magic level: Full mage, but with a low magic rating/few spells.

Intended Role: Support/utility mage, plus gun expert.
This character is not a traditional 'magic detective; He lacks the information-gathering spells needed for such a role. He can, however gather information by more mundane means, social and physical.
Main skills/abilities: Limited magical support plus some basic combat ability, including a good gun group rating. Also would have some detective and social skills for investigations. Much less effective in melee.
Would probably not shine in scenes requiring a lot of stealth, matrix ability, or acrobatic maneuvers, but could support his allies there.
Note: Because of his limited magic, his spirits and preparations would be at a relatively low force. Although he would know a combat spell, Master 51 uses guns rather than spells for most combat.

Appearance: He is rather short, with light-brown eyes, hair, and skin. His eyes, ears, and nose are small and round.

Personality: Tries to appear bland and dull, but it's mainly an act. Is very focused mentally.

Background: My childhood was normal, and even somewhat boring-the only thing worth note is that the company my parents worked for wasn't international, so it didn't qualify for extra-territorial status. The rumor that they spread about my having been born on September 9, 1999 at 0 latitude and 0 longitude with the last name of Null, and having been under the effect of polar bear hibernation hormone is pure fiction. Someone came up with that to explain how I could appear on the Shadow scene with no record, SIN or otherwise.. The truth is that someone filled out a form incorrectly, and all my records were lost as a result. Before that, I was a non-matriculated student. There was SUPPOSED to be money set aside for my education by my family, but the broker churned the account so I lost all the money to fees and was only able to audit courses for no credit at a community college. That's how I have some limited knowledge of the new 5-element Hermetic Alchemy, but no formal degree. Moving to Seattle made sense when my records were lost, because I could hide out in the barrens while I sorted my life out and tried to figure out who I was and what I was going to do. Now I live in a utility loft apartment in downtown Seattle, ride around on a motorcycle, and use what skill I have in odd jobs, some of which might be of questionable legality...I don't ask questions about that type of thing. The OTHER rumor about me; the one about my being a somewhat incompetent mage...I admit I don't have the power to handle to high-force magic, but I know my limits and am NOT sloppy with magic!

Questionnaire:
How familiar are you with the Shadowrun setting and the 5e rule set?
Answer: I have played once or twice, and I am somewhat familiar with the setting from computer games.
I have read the Core Rulebook, and Run Faster. I skimmed other rulebooks online.
There are still a few rules points I am uncertain about, but I think I understand most of the rules my character will be using.
One particular point of contention is that there seems to be a missing rule: The flavor fiction which comes with the rulebook appears to imply that spirits are immune to most ranged weapons (but not ranged spells,) as was the case in previous version of the rules.
I can't find this rule anywhere in the actual rules, just the flavor fiction.

Are you willing to use and be active in a private Discord server to discuss the game?
Answer: How do I use Discord? Do I have to download a program? How much does it cost?
I don't know enough about Discord to answer the question fully.
Does it require special hardware or software? I have a streaming camera.
I would probably be willing to use it if you explain how.

How often do you think you'll be able to post?
I will try to check the thread every day, but I might be out of town for a few days, in which case I will let you know.
I might wait to allow other people to post before posting.

Runner Name: Nekomimi
Metatype: Human (Changeling, Class II SURGE)
Appearance:
 

Intended Role: Stealth and Unarmed Melee
Background:
How did you become a runner? This will act as a writing sample, but try to keep it concise.A unfortunate series of events, first starting with the debt from her parents. To keep things short and simple, her family got dragged into an ongoing turf-war between some Yakuza; and the side they were backing lost. In effect, they were made to pay
"reperations". Shiro had long since already Awakened, though the spike of mana that was related to this also caused her to become a Changeling. Unfortunately, she was pretty much stuck with a twelve year-old's body. Even more unfortunately, her parents, grandparents, and great grandparents were all chopped because they couldn't pay their monthly dues in time. Shiro, on the other hand, was spared because they found her useful: She's both Awakened, and perpetually a child. Though the cat ears and tail were a little weird, Japan has been into "a little weird" for the past hundred and fifty years or so anyhow; and some people would be more than willing to pay good nuyen for an anime cat-girl. The only bit of light that Shiro had by this point, was her "distant uncle"; who was in the Yakuza. In short, he got her out of that whole debaucle; but she had to the leave the country. Using some favors, he managed to land her in Seattle. She even has an apartment that's nice and secure, even if it's not the most legally owned place. Deciding it was a good idea to lie-low for a while, Shiro didn't get a SIN or anything else like that. Time goes on, she's 16, and she needs money. Though she wouldn't say she's experienced, Shiro has been doing little 'runs (mostly parcel delivery) for the past three years. Drek hits the fan, and she suddenly has some yakuza wolves on her tail. While they didn't quite find where she was living, they found the general area she'd been operating in. They left her a little message, and so she now needs some extra nuyen to shut them up and send them packing; though she'd prefer to not have to pay them a damn bit.


Questionnaire:

How familiar are you with the Shadowrun setting and the 5e rule set? Setting-wise, I've been reading it for quite a while. I even have paperback books going from 4e all the way to 1e. System-wise... I've never actually managed to play it, but I'm fairly confident in my understanding of the system; though I've been messing around with chargen for a good while, so at least I'm quite intimately familiar with that much.
Are you willing to use and be active in a private Discord server to discuss the game? Sure!
How often do you think you'll be able to post? Assuming I don't die randomly, I could probably post daily; if not multiple times a day.

Runner Name: Vehicle registered in the name of Tom Richard Harrison, possible alias Art Axel, commonly known by "Gridlock"
Metatype: Human (Suspect insists on filling out paperwork as 'Human - Classic')
Intended Role: "Totally Legitimately Licensed" Rigger, (Loudmouth/Smartass)
Appearance: Suspect is tall, slim to the point of being frail. Wears dark hair long to hide the jack. Wears sunglasses to hide the chrome. Wears an easy smirking grin to hide god knows what. Possibly armed, definitely dangerous.
 

Background: How did you become a runner?

The man leaned back, dim bar lights glinting off his dark glasses, even a hint of the chrome eyes behind. He was slouched back in the booth, arms slung over the back of seating. In one hand, he carelessly tossed a large glass of some fruity rainbow coloured drink, little umbrellas rattling around the rim. On the index finger of the other hand, he was dangling the small stainless suitcase of a midrange rcc. Gently rocking the delicate electronics, like he'd be twirling it if he could. So cavalier one might make one think he was sloshed out of his mind, anyone who knew him would say he was like this even straight sober. He grinned, leaning forward, quite excited someone took an interest in him, thrilled really someone was talking to him even.

He shrugged, smirking as always. "Inheritance mostly... Born into it really. It's a tale as old as time. Parents ran this little third rate delivery company," his grin spread wider. "Front for a first rate smuggling op - allegedly! Allegedly." he added pointedly. For a moment his smile flickered, just switching from a genuine one to something more faux and he almost sighed before putting the smile back on. "Well, they run afoul of someone or somesuch. And everything goes to your truly." he tapped his chest before taking a long swig of his drink more sugar than alcohol. "At least everything they couldn't prove they'd acquired fraudulently." He shrugged again with a self-satisfied smirk. "And what am I going to do with that? Keep running the business? Nah, too boring. But, get into rigging for the runners, now there's a thrill. Besides, without that what would I be doing? Hanging around my place like some old geezer aging away in a retirement home? I'd be bouncing off the walls. Catch my death of boredom. And well, nuyen buys new toys, can't say no to that!"

"So what do you need? Milk run, drek jobs? 'Loss', 'recovery', 'interception'? Reconnaissance, point a to point b? I do it all. Or like, I could deliver something whatever, or get you a pizza, or we could just hang out sometime, you could come see my pad, or you know whatever."


He glanced back over his shoulder and held up his glass. "Can I get another? Thanks chief!"

Questionnaire:
How familiar are you with the Shadowrun setting and the 5e rule set? - Moderately familiar, have played and DMed 5th occasionally.
Are you willing to use and be active in a private Discord server to discuss the game? - Yep!
How often do you think you'll be able to post? - Mostly Daily

@AwesomeEli: Both COBOLd and Sable are young elves and it seems like they'd be familiar with each other. would you be interested in them being friends growing up should we both get approval?
