GM Notes

GAME NAMEShadowrun: Barcelona 2080

GAME SYSTEMShadowrun Sixth Edition

GAME THEMEMystery, Survival

GAME TONENew City, new contacts, new friends, new enemies, and the clock is ticking

GAME PLOTMr. Johnson - "Hereís what I know, or at least what I strongly believe: In the near future, someone important is going to be assassinated in Barcelona. Several signs point in that direction: Some heavy hitters have moved into the sprawl, while some light hitters have left town to clear out some space. Law enforcement has picked up some buzz about this, too, but they only know something is in the works, not what. They donít know itís an assassination. I need to know more, and Iíll pay you to find out whatís going on before it happens. Then we can figure out if we want to stop it."

CHARACTER CREATIONStandard priority generation, although I am happy to accept Sum-10 *1 provided only one Priority A choice is taken. (NOTE: There are some additional rewards you can use at character creation noted in the House Rules.)

To help with character creation, Arialles has created an Excel Character Generator for SR6 which can be downloaded from here (Section 7.1 6e Runner creation tool).

I would like to keep the post as clean as possible, maintaining the PG13 rating for this platform. Let's keep descriptive violence minimal and without too much gore. I would also like the story focused on the campaign (preferably everyone stays professional and focus on the job)with little to no romance.

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

Silk - Olia

Deal with Mr. Johnson
Mr. Johnson took over your 50,000 of debt in exchange for her working for him.
She owes 5,000/month for interest on that debt until it is paid off.
ItemAmount
Loan50,000•
Paid0•
Remaining50,000•
Note: She can redeem 1 mark to pay off 1k• of debt.
Note: She can pay 1 karma to add 5k• to that debt.


Rival
Adam - a controlling ex-boyfriend

Adam(real name, unknown) is a mix of Charisma Adept and Gun Adept that can talk his way into and out of situations so well that he is an effective face for his small group of shadowrunners. If Adam has any morals, it's that he does not betray his team. All else is fair game to the man. A borderline sociopath, Adam loves manipulating people. Control over others is his main focus in life, and when he can't do that, Adam is very good with his pistols. While Adam is violent by nature, he tends not to kill people outright unless he has to, it's part of a job, or he cannot manipulate them when needed. Hurting people, however, was never something Adam had to work up to. In fact, there were times, Adam had to be talked down from hurting someone when he was in a mood. Adam has a dominant personality, and while he likes causing people pain to control them, he's not really a sadist. It's all about control for him.

His two childhood friends and team members are not much better than Adam. King is an orc decker who, thanks to Adam and Silk, scavenged most of his hacking gear from those unfortunate enough to have been targeted by the group. King is an angry orc who rails against the injustices that orc kind has been inflicted with and has no compassion for the corporate drones he faces in the matrix and will risk a run if it means he can fry their synapses out. The chances of an orc decker working for a corporation is slim to none, so King cares little for who he hurts when running against corporations. King is a brute force decker. The last member of Adam's circle of runner friends is Silk, a dwarven street samurai. She replaced her limbs with chrome cybernetics and several other choice parts. Silk is effectively borged out and cares little for the suffering of others. While she won't go out of her way to kill someone unless a job dictates it so, Silk just does not care if those who do get in her way live or die. Silk's world revolves around King, whom she loves unconditionally.

NOTE: Adam (Adept Face), King (Decker), Silk (Street Samurai)
NOTE: Adam had King drain her mother's bank account after she died to force Olia to be dependent on him. (Or can switch this to someone else if the opportunity arises.)
NOTE: Olia still fears Adam finding her.

NOTE: Adam will show up in the car that harasses the team on the road for their first mission.
NOTE: Adam will show up in passing a couple of times, but will start harassing Olia once he identifies her.
NOTE: Mr. Johnson will have him arrested (and framed for murder) to stop him from harassing Olia.


Disposable Contact
Anthony Doyal [4C/2L]
Anthony Doyal is a college professor who teaches starter Magic classes in Detroit. While just another magical theory, professor Anthony has a hobby of trying to help his students find alternate magical traditions to better control their emerging magic. Olia, or Amanda Cray as she was known back then, was one such student. Anthony worked with Amanda to find out that she was an intuitive magician. Or, to use an old-world term, Amanda was a sorceress. Anthony was disappointed that Amanda had to drop out due to a lack of money. Given the current state of the world, looking for grants was not an option either. Still, Amanda and Anthony kept in contact with one another; though they never really became friends, they still talked from time to time. Amanda, aka Olia, hopes that she has kept her old teacher below Adam's radar. Since he said nothing about it, Olia has no reason to suspect otherwise.

Rival
Jornic Dalmarus, life long rival. Jornic has always wanted the upper hand on Caber and has always blamed the fall of their home town on him. The latest plot against Caber was devised when Jornic was employed by Lowfyr of Saeder-Krupp. It was a failed attempt but Caber fears that he is still being hunted



Notes
His goals:
  1. Find Tessa, trying to tie what's left of the family back together. (Find a way to further this arc. She is magically gifted and working for a corporation.)
  2. Bring down Lowfyr and Jornic for setting him up. (Incorporate this into the story when we get to it. His rival, Jornic, is working for Lowfyr Of Saeder-Krupp)
  3. Bring prosparity and stability back to his home town
  4. Build up a mobile runners van.
  5. Rebuild Agility to 4, it has deteriorated since the crash and the cyber arm still needs tweaking.
  6. Purchase some type of aircraft.
  7. Tessa works with Jornic for Lowfyr at Saeder-Krupp. They were seen together at El Casino La Floresta entering a private room for a secret Saeder-Krupp meeting.

stubbornmist - Boris

stubbornmist - Boris

Rival
Kingstan Stephans : Rival
Kingston is the troll that started it all. The doubt which seeded and the grew inside of Boris until he realized he wasn't cut out for the title of 'champion'. Kingston soundly beat Boris three times in their fighting years, after which Boris decided to take a different path. Boris doesn't know whether to be grateful to the conceited, pig-headed troll, or to punch him in his too smug face.


Disposable Contact
Kugimiya Yukichi: Loyalty 3 Connection 3
Kugimiya is a 63 year old Mongolian monk turned martial arts master. During Boris' pit years his father figure hired Kugimiya to mentor Boris in hopes of boosting his moral and returning him to the champion he once was.

Julen Aviles: Loyalty 1 Connection 3
Julen was a competitor in many of the multinational fight tournaments that Boris competed in. As a human Julen was out of Boris' weight class and so was neither a friend, nor a rival, but they would recognize one another if they crossed in the street.

Erdeli Tikhonovich: Loyalty 3 Connection 2
Erdeli is the pitmaster of the underground fighting circuit in Moscow, Russia. As well as father figure to Boris, who was handed to him at birth. Erdeli is strict, and often quick to anger, but seems to have a true soft spot for the troll he raised to be champion, even if his dreams didn't quite come true.

Anita: Loyalty 2 Connection 1
Anita is a troll from The Black Forest Troll Republic, out in the world with a specific drive to recruit trolls to the republic. So far Boris has been uninterested in her offer, but Anita is stubborn and has decided to wear him down slowly.

Setting Ranks and Thresholds

Hosts (CRB: p185)
Hosts have a general rating, which translates into their Matrix attributes. These general ratings are between 1 adn 12. The ratings of these attributes are usually (host rating), (host rating + 1), (host rating + 2), and (host rating +3), in any order. For example, a rating 4 host might have Attack 5, Sleaze 4, Data Processing 7, Firewall 6.

Basic host security usually consists of Patrol IC scanning icons as they move about. If an unauthorized presence is detected, it may launch other IC programs, in addition to notifying security staff that it has been compromised. A host can launch one IC program per combat round, at the beginning of the turn, and can have up to its rating in IC programs running at once. Hosts may only run one copy of each type of IC.

Other security measures have more to do with host architecture than with killer programs. Multiple hosts could be nested behind one another, with the most secure data being on the deepest host. Because you must hack each host in succession from the outside, having inside access to a site with a direct connection to the deepest host (if one exists) is valuable—especially when your Overwatch Score increases are based on all the hosts in which you maintain access at any given time, not just the one you’re currently using.


Threshold Guidelines (CRB p36)
Threshold Description
1Simple task, only slightly more difficult than walking and talking.
2More complex, but still in the range of normal experience.
3Normal starting point for Simple tests.
4More difficult, impressive enough to accomplish.
5Tricky, the sort of thing only accomplished by those who have worked on their skills.
6Elite-level accomplishment, something that few in the world could pull off with any degree of regularity.
7Standing out among the elite, demonstrating very rare ability.


SKILL LEVELS (CRB p98)
RANKEXPERTISE
0Untrained: You’ve never tried to do the thing you’re about to do, at least not seriously.
1Novice: You’ve taken a few lessons, done some reading, but you’re still pretty new to this area.
2Advanced beginner: You’ve put in some time and practice, and it shows, but you know many people could easily outpace you.
3Journeyman: Your skills are starting to be recognized. Your accumulating experience is clear.
4Professional: When people are hiring for this particular skill, they look for someone like you.
5Advanced professional: Even other pros realize that you’ve raised your game, and if they don’t hustle you’ll leave them behind.
6Local legend: You haven’t hit the big time, but people who know you speak of your skill with great respect.
7Elite: Now you’re making it toward the top. With this level of skill, you outpace the vast majority of the rest of the world.
8Elite pro: Not only can you make money in this skill, but you’re recognized as one of the best by your peers.
9National elite: You’re one of the best in your entire nation in this area.
10Multinational elite: Your skills go beyond your national borders, and they are good enough to excel even in international competition.
11Global elite: If there were Olympics for this skill, you’d be considered a gold-medal contender. If there are Olympics for this skill, you should probably enter them.
12GOAT: When people talk about the Greatest of All Time, your name is in the mix, if not at the top of the list.

Security, Sensors, and Scanners (CRB p238)
Security Rating Professional Level of Security Team Notes
Z0No security
E1Little to no Matrix support
D1Little to no Matrix support
C3Remote Matrix Spiders (Professional Level 3) might investigate extensive hacking efforts
B4Matrix Spiders (Professional Level 4) regularly check on Matrix infrastructure in the area
A4Matrix Overwatch
AA5Matrix Overwatch
AAA6Constant Matrix Overwatch
