Well. I'll have to pull out the old books to recall everything I need to know, but I think this sounds fun.
I'm also prepping for a Warhammer 40k tournament this weekendso I may be a bit slower than those who have already posted here. If that's not a problem than I think I've got an idea that you might find interesting.
Thus far the characters presented have been pretty classic. The soldier, the antiheroic mage, tech-savant, Kira Yamato....
well. I'd like to build from the opposite end of the spectrum. I'd like to play a martian addict who's on the run from a rival gang. He either blew all his money on the ticket for the ship, or he possibly even stowed away or stole it. But now all he's got in the world are his two fists and an itch he can never quite scratch.
Maybe its drugs, maybe its simsense (if you are not familiar with the Shadowrun its more or less movies that you plug directly into your nervous system that can cause serious brain damage if they are overused, or if protective restrictions on them aren't in place that cause sensations far stronger than anything reality can produce).
Cross Mickie from Snatch, and Renton from Trainspotting. With perhaps a touch of Johnny Mnemonic and that's my inspirations. So have I interested you yet?
