Posting Interest to reflect the interest and comments I shared in your previous thread in preparation for this game. I have never played CPR, but if it is similar to the Witcher TTRP, I have experience with that, so that lessens my "New System Anxiety" a bit. I'll see if I can come up with a couple of somethings, but regardless if I make it to actually applying finished characters, GOOD LUCK ALL! And Good Luck, Chylopan, on your game. Looks fun.

Also, you may want to message a Red to add [CyberpunkRED] to your Thread Title as I'm sure it would generate more interest. I wouldn't have known this was a CPR game had I not clicked out of curiosity of what systems was being run. (I like playing niche systems)

I welcome the applications, Saratek, if you manage to muster up the inspiration.

As well, good idea about adding the game tag.

It's less "inspiration" as it is my own writing self-doubt. Applications are probably my weak point, so I usually end up passing because I read others' apps and just think, "I can't do better than that." Plus, with there being so few selections, I'd feel guilty getting selected over someone else.

Current Concepts
  • Worn-Out Lawman that's seen too much and is just trying to survive to his Pension
  • LE-Contracted Netrunner who decides to get out of the dank, dark basement to give 'Working the Streets' a try.

Then it's a matter of perspective! Tell yourself "I can do way better than that" and do it!

At any rate, those ideas do sound quite fun. They'd make great character concepts, for sure.

Senior Detective Application
right-aligned image

Name: Andrei Sokolov
Age: 54
Race: Eastern European (Ukrainian/Russian)
Sex: Male
Badge Number: NCPD-01734
Role: Lawman
Vice: Alcohol and Smoking, but nothing beats a true 30-Year Scotch paired with a Fine Cigar. Grew up with it as an example of how to 'wind down' and is socially acceptable for his job.
Appearance
 

Background
 

Hierarchy Preference: Based solely on his experience and story, he'd have to be the Senior Detective. Having had many partners before, he's used to the process of being assigned one, teaching them all he can, doing his best to keep them alive, and then watching them move on beyond him. While he doesn't enjoy the process, he understands the necessity of it. While there are those that would consider being assigned to him a dreadful concept, you can't say that Andrei doesn't ensure results, even if his methods aren't always in-line with protocol. There are few left at his rank that has closed as many cases, but that's surely a direct result of the time he's spent at it, as opposed to his proficiency. Experience trumps ambition. Ambition is how Lawmen get killed.

Lifepath Generation
 


Rookie Detective Application
right-aligned image

Name: Olivia "Liv" Murdock
Age: 29
Race: North American
Sex: Female
Badge Number: NCPD-21573
Role: Netrunner
Vice: Braindances (especially XBDs). Started early as a way to 'escape' her mother's confinement, but grew into how she was able to find 'release' from the monotony. She now makes copies of the BDs she sifts through as part of the NCPD, taking them home to relive the horrors over and over again for that 'adrenaline rush.'
Appearance
 

Background
 

Hierarchy Preference: Liv is set up to be the Rookie Detective and surely is looking forward to her first case. While she may not have the 'Patrol' or 'Real' experience that some of her colleagues believe she should before having been promoted to such a position, she has put in the work, making it undeniable that she checked all of the boxes and could make it as a Detective. Especially so given her youthful connection to the quickly-advancing world and her expertise with the NET that now governs everyone's lives.

Lifepath Generation
 


OOC: I know. It's A LOT. It's why I say apps are my "Weak Point". If I'm going to write a background, you're going to get a Story. Apologies for the somewhat compartmentalized history. It's how I flow sometimes, especially in this Lifepath method. I'm very much open to feedback and making edits if you wish to offer any.

Certainly interested in this! Love noir themes and tone. Quick question - do you have a link to a rulebook or set of rules that detail character creation and such like? Completely unfamiliar with the game system.

@Chylopan Both Apps are Complete. As I've never played this system, but have familiarity with "Lifepath Generation" games, I hope I delivered what you were looking for. I very much welcome any comments and critiques and will be happy to edit.

I also must stress that most of my Cyberpunk familiarity comes from CDPR's "Cyberpunk 2077", but I both made sure to keep things vague enough as well as did quick research of the CPR book at times in an attempt to keep things proper for the setting. I don't expect to be perfect, so I'll be happy to adjust if there are any mistakes on my part.

Barring any edits, I do hope one of these two will ultimately be to your liking. Both were quite enjoyable to write, and two entirely different characters, which was a welcome challenge for me, especially back to back.

Even though it's a long way out: Good Luck to both my Fellow Applicants and to you, Chylopan, on your future, highly-successful game. I know you've been pondering/planning it for a while, so I'm excited to be able to see it start to come to life.

There's this online character gen that's free. I've never used it. Unsure if it supports Lifepath gen.Ripperdoc RED

And there are several YouTube videos that go over the full version of character creation. Problem is, I am unaware of any publicly available (and free) document that goes over the individual or role based Lifepath options.

Everything looks great to me.

I'll have a table up sometime soon-ish.

I really like this concept and so decided to roll up a pair of characters. Link to Lifepath rolls. I am partial to the Senior detective
Senior Detective
right-aligned image

Name: means "to gain" or "advantage"Ae Ri refers to a state in the Zhou dynastyNa ~ aka Arena(Ae Ri hates that nick name)
Age: 30
Race: East Asian (Korean)
Sex: Female
Role: Solo
Badge Number: NCPD-10069
Hierarchy Preference: Senior Detective

Vice: Black Lace ~ living on the streets there is no drug that Ae Ri has not taken before she was old enough to drink legally. If there is one constant in Ae Ri's life it is that life hurts and Ae Ri manages this pain with drugs. While Ae Ri has used Smash and Synthcoke in the past, her preferred drug of choice is Black Lace for how long it deadens life's pain. Surprisingly, Ae Ri has a sturdy constitution and has not become addicted to the drugs, and only uses them when she's had a truly awful day. Her low pay and the cost are also a deterrent to her using daily.

Appearance: Detail what you think necessary and leave out what isn’t. I’m fond of cool or interesting pictures that help bring a description to life, if you're looking for bonus points.

left-aligned image
Background/Lifepath: Overall backstory. How you joined the force, how long you've been there, memorable cases, how do you feel about the job, etc. Be sure to include events in your Lifepath.

 

Rookie Cop
right-aligned image

Name: Jonathan Rook ~ aka Jon
Age: 21
Race: North American
Sex: Male
Role: Media
Badge Number: NCPD-88371
Hierarchy Preference: Rookie Detective

Vice: Red-heads ~ Jon has always been a lady's man and loves the chase as well as the conquest. While Jon is detached from carrying about people and that has caused him to lose any number of girlfriends over the years, that same detached nature of his also helps him bounce back from being thrown to the curbside by his latest fling. But as much as he likes the game, even Jon has to accept that he has one blind spot...red-heads. Maybe he's just shallow, but there hasn't been a red-head that he hasn't fallen heads over heals for and trusted to his detriment.

Appearance: Detail what you think necessary and leave out what isn’t. I’m fond of cool or interesting pictures that help bring a description to life, if you're looking for bonus points.

Background/Lifepath: Overall backstory. How you joined the force, how long you've been there, memorable cases, how do you feel about the job, etc. Be sure to include events in your Lifepath.

 


I'll have to finish this later. Took to long trying to find good pics It was really hard for the Rookie though I found this really cool-looking pic of Thor as a cyberpunk, it just didn't fit the character concept I had. ...The Rookie pic might change if I find something better.
