Shadowrun 4th Edition

About This GamePrimetime is a Shadowrun 4th Edition play-by-post game. It is set in the cool spring of Seattle, in the year 2070. The group of runners this game will follow is well past their prime, nearing the ripe age of 90 in some cases. Each of the Runners have kept in touch over the years, but time is catching up to them. This group of Pre-Awakening vets is starting to die out, in fact, one of them already has. A subsidiary of one of the Big Ten is ready to offer what remains of the Runners a second chance at life: Leonization. In exchange, as the Runner's fixer explains, the megacorp wants the Runners to be a cleanup crew. Should they refuse, they'll be... Erased.

A cleanup crew for what though, well, that's for Mr. Johnson to say.

Who I'm Looking ForI'm looking for people who are familiar with the Shadowrun 4th ruleset. I am not looking to baby anyone through the character creation process and would rather have people who know what they're doing. I'm also looking for people who are willing to be serious about this game, while still having fun with it. I want players who get along with others and can adapt their characters to fit the needs of the crew, rather than have their character be completely focused in one specific skillset.

How to ApplyHead on into the game forum. Check out the Characters section of the forum. Use the rules and application format provided to create your character. The best five applications will be selected for the game. Post interest in this thread here and I'll create a private thread for you to use in the forum.

Other InformationI'm ShamedShadow. I've played several PbP games and I've seen more than my fair share of games die out. I'm hoping that this game won't go down the drain, and to help with that I'm going to have a semi-loose posting policy. I'm going to hold myself to at least three posts a week. Hopefully it doesn't degrade to that point, but that's the minimum I'm looking at to hopefully keep this game afloat, especially as we move further into the holiday season.

Game Description:

It's Primetime is a Shadowrun 4th edition game that follows a group of veteran runners. They have been hired by a subsidiary company of Ares Macrotechnology to deal with an issue that only they can deal with.

we all pay for it, one way or the other haha

Just want to be certain about a thing. You mention the IRC channel. The game is going to be Play by Post tho. Yes?

I would be interested in a PbP game.

I have trouble scheduling time to be online for VOIP or other types of immediate on computer gaming with others.

Yes, this is a PbP game. I highly recommend using the IRC channel to ask me quick questions and such though.

Requiem, I'd guess...more than 1.

My character is coming along nicely. Should be ready to move to career mode to spend that 200 karma tomorrow or Saturday.

Eh, the idea behind the character, as a veteran runner, is that he's considered mostly unkillable. Too fast and aware for you to get a good hit on him, and he's tough enough to shrug off anything but a really good hit. I think I've managed like 11 base damage on his unarmed attacks too...

I am going mage decker so if they find me I am already dead lol

I would like to make a character with which to apply. with eleven other applicants though, I will understand if I do not make the cut. Thinking Negotiator, Decker/Rigger, or some kind of combination. Really leaning towards Rigger after seeing some of the other Ideas. Sould others prefer ground vehicle transport or Air? Grounds less suspicious but not always accessable, Air is usually accessable but also usually Suspicious. I am planning on both but one will of course be better than the other.

Alright GiasRhen, your thread is up.

Ah, ShamedShadow, good to see you're starting up a game! I am, of course, posting interest. No idea as what.
