Manhunt

Game NameManhunt
Game SystemShadowrun 5 (SR5)
ThemeInvestigation, Combat, Roleplay
FlavourParacritters, magic, spirits, the Barrens
Plot SummaryGlobe-trotting adventuring, corporate intrigue, espionage, and combat
Plot SummaryYour commlink alerts you to an urgent call from your fixer. As you struggle into consciousness, it also informs you of the following information: It is 3:12 a.m. local time and the nearest Stuffer Shack would like to offer you a special deal on a caramel guava triple-soykaf and breakfast burrito combo. But only for the next thirty minutes, so come on in and get stuffed!

Your fixer’s voice springs from your commlink. "I got a Johnson on satellite link, needs some help in the Barrens. Interested? Doesn’t sound like easy work, but it doesn’t pay like it either."

Game InformationThis adventure was originally part of the Shadowrun Convention Missions campaign, run at various conventions and tournaments. It's part of a series of adventures connected by a theme that often pops up in Shadowrun, that of confronting the chaos and wildness hidden in the borders of the Sixth World’s massive sprawls, particularly the urban jungle of Seattle.

Character creation will follow the standard runner rules using Sum to Ten. Any source books outside of the core will need to be approved by me first.


Application InformationFor this game I am looking for 5-6 Players of varying experience levels. I've played several SR5 characters, but this is my first attempt at running a game, so we'll need to be patient with each other. Anyone wanting to play a decker or technomancer archetype should have prior experience, because of their complexity and "fringe" involvement. This adventure is the first in a series of adventures, and experience/equipment/karma gained will be retained throughout the adventures. Applications will be closing on February 28, 11:59 PM EST.

Please do not roll any dice in the application thread!

Anyone looking to apply for this game will need to provide the following information:

Character Name: Your PC's full name
Street Handle: Either a codename or nickname
Metatype: Your character's metavariant "race".
Archetype: Your character's role or the next closest thing.

Appearance: What does your character look like? Clothing, physical attributes? (Any pictures should not be larger than your application)
Personality: How does your character act? Include their habits and mannerisms.

Background: A summary of your character's life thus far.

RP Sample: Please provide a writing sample of what your character is doing prior to the adventure, which takes place in Seattle. This is where the game will actually begin, so your character should be in town at the beginning of the adventure. If they're from somewhere outside of Seattle, explain how they got to town and why. you may use one of the options provided below as a prompt for the writing sample.

 


 


 


 


Posting Rate: Ideally I'm looking for 2-3 times a week. Consistency is the most important thing.

Questionnaire: These questions are only here to serve as a guideline when writing your application. While not required to be answered directly, the more of these your application answers the better your chances.

I might apply, depending on who else applies and what party slot appears to be needed.

Chalk me up as interested. I'd be novice at Shadowrun at best, familiar but very out of practice. I'll try to have something put together by the end of this weekend.

Guess we're not going easy on the newbie GM. :-/

Let me check Run Faster and get back to you? I just want to make sure that a) they're balanced, b) they're appropriate, and c) I have a prayer in Hell of handling them. Let me know what you plan on doing with the character and why a changeling or variant is the best choice, even if it's a general idea.

Everything comes with a price.

To be honest the only big unbalanced thing about changelings is in the Which I have far too much respect for GMs to ever use.Astral Hazing quality that comes from SURGE, most of them are minor bonuses or negatives... Or a major crippling of an attribute. I mostly have an interest in the changeling stuff because I vibe pretty hard with it, they just call to me like a magnet... Metavariants mostly because they diversify the team, present interesting situations (Nomad and her umbrella ), and let you have a bit more fun with everything rather than just being your bog-standard Orc, Troll or Elf.

'course this is all IMO, what you say goes as the GM.

Ooh, a shadowrun game? Wiz. I'll get something thrown together soon chummer!

Also, I've run a game with one of the Shifters from Run Faster, and those at least seemed decently balanced

Hey, think I'd like to try an app for this. Playing around with a troll investigator adept. Big perception, big pistol, big hammer. Ye?
