Recruiting more Spartans for a Halo game

Ghosts of Valour - Forum
Estimated Members Requested: 8

I am doing some additional recruiting for this game. It is on going, but I lost some players. Give me a good app and I will fit you in.

Game Description:

Hi all. I am Blakkmonk and I will be running a Halo game ( based more on the fluff) using the Shadowrun 4e, 20th anniversary rules set.

I am looking for at least 8 players to split into two teams of 4. Each team will contain one Smart AI and Spartans. I am willing to take a few more, depending if I get that many apps of course. Please refer to the information listed below and into the game forum itself. If you have any questions after that, please ask.

The current in game month and year if March, 2548. The Spartan PC's have been in MJOLNIR IV armor for years now. They are all combat veterans and all will know each other through the Spartan II program.

AI characters have been online less than 6 months.

When the game begins, the Spartans will be introduced to their new armor and to the AI's. They will not no each other prior to this. For the rest, please refer to below or two the forum.

Shadowrun 4e, 20th Anniversary Edition
Runner's Companion-for AI players.

All other books will be used and will be able to add more options for your pc's but are not strictly needed for play.
Players submitting an AI application please refer to the following link. This will be used for all "matrix" encounters.

The PC's will be of one of two types. Either a Spartan II or a Smart AI. No ODST or other types allowed. Please don't ask. The rules for building the pc's in the shadowrun system are in the game forum.

Spartans, you should think of roles that you would like to forfil. Examples include, but are not limited to, Heavy Weaposn Gunner, scout, sniper, CQB specialist, riflemen, intelligence, electronics warfare, squad and assistant squad leads. I encourage multiple roles. Spartans are the best trained warriors in the human military.

Smart AI's are the hackers and riggers of the game world. You can be a generalist or specialize in one or the other, for example.

Applications can be submitted in the game forum. All characters will have the same two contacts. You will meet them in game play, so its not an important issue. Any more than the two will have to be bought with BP's as normal and approved by me. All apps will be ran through Hero Lab by me and I will upload the accepted apps a pdf from their for their use.

Please remember that Spartan's, ONI and the AI that are a part of them use Navy ranks and terms. I will help you out with all of that.

Completed apps will need to include the crunch for their pc's following the outline given in the game forum.
The game forum has information to assist in building your pc's background. Additional inspiration can be found at the following.

All augmentation information will be given to the accepted apps and will be added to the character sheets of the accepted Spartans.

Equipment will be given out on a case by case basis.

I am expanding the in game universe as far as equipment is concerned. Drones will be a factor, with a wide selection available. There will be a separate equipment thread for all weapons and gear.

I am putting this in its own section for clarity. These suits are prototypes, being in-field tested by your squads. They lack a later development (shields) although they and other improvements will happen as the game goes along.

Each MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/(P) will consist of the base suit. You will be able to select add-ons to help you in your mission roles. All MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/(P) suits have the ability to intergrate with the Smart AI's. You will learn more about your gear as the game gets started.

The current date the game will start is March 10th, 2548. Spartan pc's will have previously fought the insurrectionist outer colonies prior to the Convent invasion. They have been combating the Convent on all fronts as part of NavSpecWar for years now. Recently, due to the PC's operational record and ability to think independently, they have been transfered to an

Office of Naval Intelligence
ONI Black Ops division called Six-Alpha.
The two Spartan teams, designated Wraith and Specter, will work behind the lines and will be given the latest in resources. This will include the a newer version of their battle armor, the MJOLNIR Powered Assault Armor/(P) and accesses to the latest in Smart AI partners.

I think this is set in the Halo universe rather than the typical Shadowrun universe.


very halo. you have more points than normal as well. I will be running everyone through hero lab when they are done with their crunch, and then upload you a character sheet in pdf form.

Lol, I missed 100points in skills. I just have one question though, can I take a skillgroup ex Athletics 3 and then raise Clim to 4 and take a speciality in Climb?

its either or. in a skill group, you have to raise all the skills at once or lose the group point break. if you want the specialty, you have to raise the skills on their own.

Also it looks like three applications were added/updated yesterday. Are you still looking for more? It looks like your accepted players list is pretty long but your recruitment thread makes it look like you only have two players (in the squad listings).

The game sounds fun, I just wanted to make sure I knew your status before digging through everything you've posted up and getting familiar with SR4 again. Also having the list of current players and roles helps to avoid too much overlap and provide more of a unique character without having to scour every character and try to figure out who is active.


Hey spazz, hope to see ya in the game!
