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.

I like the looks of this every which way. Muchly interested.

Also very interested, but I don't think I have the bandwidth to get a character together in any reasonable timeframe. I played a lot of SR4 PBP over at Dumpshock, and character creation takes me a lot of time. :-D I'll still probably try to keep an eye on how the game goes.

Alright, put up threads for everyone.

Just a reminder that this ad (and subsequently applications) will close on November 30th.

is there a source list? or is all shadowrun books open?

There is a Source List in the Character Creation thread. It's in the spoiler in that post.

tsuyoshikentsu, your thread is up.

Due to the age of the characters, how do you want to handle contacts? Any free ones, or standard expenditure of BP/karma?

Check the character creation details, hes giving us a very good fixer (5/5) for free, but other than that looks like we have to purchase them.

Everyone has a free contact, detailed in the character creation thread, but otherwise no free contacts. At some point during the character's career they would've had to pay for it.
