This sounds amazing! I'm brand new here (I signed up for an account after finding your thread searching for "pbp Shadowrun"). I'm also new to 6e (I do, however, own all of the core rule books) though not to Shadowrun (I ran a 2e game for more than a decade, but that was almost 20 years ago now, and used to pbp on the old shadowland.org). I have a number of character concepts in mind and have downloaded the spreadsheet. Is there a hard deadline for having characters ready? Thank you so much!

No hard deadline, if you can piece together a concept I’m happy for players to flush out their characters in the first couple of weeks or so…

I was hoping to have started the IC but I’m a bit delayed too so that will probably kick off next week

Great! I was going to try to PM you, but it would seem that I'm too new to RPGCrossing, so here it goes: so even before looking at your lore material, I had in mind an aspected magician (summoner) who has a demonic spirit guide and an enmity with kin spirits. He lives as a shadowrunner as a convenient cover for his darker devotion and beyond that feigns allegiance to whomever and whatever suits his current circumstances, always with a singular hidden loyalty. It looks like you may have some room in your lore for a demonologist so I'm hoping this basic outline would fit. Please let me know what you think.

BioGulgalogos, a name given him by his demonic guardian spirit, was originally born Esav Mattan Winchester, the son of a human mining engineer (father) for Ares Macrotechnology and a nurse (mother) for Seattle General Hospital. Born a tragic mistake, the product of intimate partner rape, which resulted in an unfortunate marriage to save face in the eyes of corporate society, Gulgalogos goblinized in the womb and was born an ork to the horror and dismay of his family. He was despised by his sadistic father who also hated his mother but felt bound to her by him. His mother was a high functioning alcoholic who couldn’t protect or adequately raise him despite genuinely loving him. Raised in a violent and broken family and faced with societal racism and discrimination from a young age, Gulgalogos developed a deep-seated loathing for the world and metahumanity (humanity in particular). Because of the ferocity of his hatred he found himself drawn to the darkest corners of the occult and was called upon by demonic spirits to serve them in undermining order and sowing hatred and violence wherever and whenever possible. He lives as a shadowrunner as a convenient cover for his dark devotion and beyond that feigns allegiance to whomever and whatever suits his current circumstances, always with a singular hidden loyalty.

Haven’t checked the maths but it looks ok

61 is really old for an orc, and even older for a shadowrunner, but we can work with that!

Mechanically you might want to increase your main skill to 6 and drop another by 1…

The excel file has some sample equipment lists on the first equipment tab, you need to get a commlink as a minimum, nobody in the 6th World goes without one!

Feel free to post your character in the PCs thread… I’ve almost finished drafting the opening IC post so hope to be ready to go shortly!

Thank you for the feedback! I'll make some revisions to the sheet accordingly and post in the PC thread.

I did realize that 61 was quite old for an ork, though I was going by the lore that those born to human parents could live a human lifespan. Nevertheless, I get that he'll be a bit of a geriatric runner. I see him getting by due primarily to his magical abilities, charisma and combat skill.

Whilst it can be frowned on in certain circles the negative quality that reduces attribute maximums would be appropriate given his age!

That actually sounds good since I have up to 8 more karma in negative qualities to take (to reach 20)!

I just saw that people were posting in the IC thread. Sorry, I guess I was expecting more of an application type thing where there would be an announcement, etc. My bad!

We've had a few 'no shows' so there's room to fit you in! We're in the intial meet stages so you've not missed much!

The 'run' is going to be undergroud a lot so I suggest Sniper would need to be a secondary role

If you're still interested have a quick read of the IC here: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthread.php?t=226241 and then post a PC in this thread: https://www.rpgcrossing.com/showthread.php?t=226026
