Good question. That will be handled once your character is selected. Please refrain from rolling any dice in this thread (or any thread, until specifically instructed to do so).
Along the same lines, do not convert your character to "career mode" in Chummer until I give you the green light.

Max Hartley
right-aligned image

NAME: Max Hartley

METATYPE: Human

ROLE: Sourceror Technomancer (Buff team devices and pairs well with a decker, Decent Hacker)/Pistols

DRAWBACKS: Creature of Comfort (Middle), Incompetent (First Aid), Stolen Gear 10, Infirm 2

DESCRIPTION:
If you seen one wageslave, you’ve seen them all. At least this is what Max wants you to believe. A man in a plain three piece suit that looks like the world has beat him down. Hair well groomed and face clean shaven. Not a button out of place. It’s easy to blend in and hide what you are when you become just another brick in the wall. There is no ‘ware to be seen on the outside, but his eyes are always scanning his surroundings for the AR overlay in his vision. Standing in the elevator with him you would never know he’s already hacked your Commlink just for fun and not left a trace.

BACKGROUND: Max Hartley was born into the CorpSec life as the only child of a pair of Ares Cyber Spiders working in CFS, Kevin and Maria Hartley. He learned the ways of the Matrix at a young especially once he Emerged as a Technomancer. The public fear of his kind and possibility he could become some lab rat of course made him keep his abilities a secret. Max kept a low profile only using his abilities when he was practicing then quickly resetting his persona when things got too hot. It wouldn’t take long for people to figure him out if he didn’t get a decent deck to hide behind. Luckily, his parents got him enrolled in the cyber security division that they worked at as an intern which provided him opportunities to stretch his Matrix muscle behind the guise of tech he didn’t even use. Over time, he secretly got better at his Technomancer abilities even unlocking a special skill to weave multiple Resonance threads into one strong cable. His skills as a normal Decker improved as well under his parents tutelage.

Seven years later, Max had joined a medieval fantasy book club, gaming group for VR Dungeons and Dragons 11th edition, and had in his possession a Shield Security Cyberdeck that he had stolen from an arms dealer who got busted for selling guns to ex-cons. It was his deck that he could now use to keep the higher ups at Ares from catching wind of what he was capable of. The device was verified to be standard issue with the original programming without coming out of the budget, so Max was allowed to use it after signing a waiver keeping Ares from being held liable if his deck got bricked. Using Resonance, the techno subtly improved his abilities and deck to be better than it really was making all the successes that came with it to be from a combination of innate talent, skill, and luck. This impressive resume landed him a job with a new special Ops team that was forming around this so called “Six Million Nuyen” person. This was his chance to earn enough money to acquire the resources to work his way out of Ares and into the Shadows where he could be free to be himself and get paid for it. He likes money yes, but it was the freedom he truly desired.

SHEET: I only have a Mac now which apparently won’t run Chummer for free so I have the stats organized in the spoiler below. Hopefully, I could convince someone to plug it into Chummer for me if selected.

As a reminder, applications will close tonight. That means all submissions must be finalized. I will read over every application probably tonight, but perhaps tomorrow, and then post a decision by Wednesday. If there are any changes you'd like to make or any questions you have, today is the day. I will do my best to be attentive.

@Hiruma Kohaku - everything looks in order.

Applications are now closed!

I reviewed most of them again today, but it may take me some time to narrow it down to 6.

After much deliberation, I have decided to move forward with the following candidates:

CMRawles as Mabel Armand, Decker
Marshmallow as Geneve Dubois, Mage
RainyDayNinja as Francis Taggart, Astral Samurai
Auntmousie as Mercedes Vasquez, Six Million Nuyen Woman, Rigger
Dylan Scott as Marcus Samuel Bishop, Infiltrator
Leg0block as John "Krieg" Kruegar, Weapons Specialist

I'd like the above players to report here as soon as possible.

I appreciate every application I received and would like to take more, but I need to be realistic about what I can manage. Thank you all for the interest and effort you've given to this game. I hope we can play again in the future.

That sounds like a blast, but I don't think there's enough of you (or enough of me) to manage it. I agree it'd be pretty fun though.
