    Default Interest? Shadowrun (River City) Reboot #2.

    So, months ago (almost a year), I started a group for Shadowrun (River City) on here, under the name @Nautilust; poured a lot of work into it, lost some people, gained some people. It took a while to get it off the ground, before it lost an engine and crashed into the ground hard and fast.

    I poured a lot of work into learning the system, learning the books like the back of my hand, story boarding, etc. Players poured a lot of work in, dealing with me, and getting their characters to where I felt they wouldn't die from breathing in the game. It was a real shame and kind of a waste for it to die the way it did, but it had to happen. I would like to someday, either revive this game or a derivative of it to get some kind of use out of the work I put into it.

    So, I would like to gauge interest in this, and perhaps retrieve some of the people who played in it when I resuscitate it.

    Hey Saturn, funny seeing you here!

    I am really enjoying Shadowrun at the moment, and would likely be interested in participating in another game. I am curious what setting elements are in play in River City, where it is located, factions involved in the city and a general synopsis. Also curious what Edition you'd be using, 5th I assume, but it never hurts to ask!

    I'd be interested, 4e or 5e?

    It was 4e, set in New York. Had a few minimal homebrews, like custom weapons, armor and vehicles.

    Any themes or what not, or a fairly typical Shadowrun game, fixer, Johnson, job, inevitable complication and then the payoff?

    Just curious if you're looking for anything specific from your players submissions. I've a strong preference for a gunslinger, or soldier type, potential either an Adept, or just heavily augmented.

    I planned to have more overarching story-lines than just your typical job to job game. But, I get bored easy so story would arch over jobs, if that makes sense.

    I'll have to double check, but I do believe I have a spiritualist shaman made up somewhere on my labtop. Did you have any rules restrictions on spirits, specifically with a totem spirit that gave her eternal life and used cosmetic surgery to obtain a demonic figure. It was an amusing character and would love to finally get to use her for something

    I wouldn't start jumping into character ideas, just yet. As opinions may change, and I don't like going back on things I've said.

    How many people you looking at taking for the crew Saturn? Also, when we do get to building, are you looking at all players taking a mutual contact, ie. Fixer?

    I was looking at 6-8 when I started it and I don't see that changing.

    I was offering a few free contacts that everyone know, that way if you didn't know another PC personally, you've likely heard of them or maybe seen them while working with a specific contact.

    Here's the one I made for a previous game. Don't worry about approving it, just wanted to post it cause I'll play it modified by whatever rules you put in place.

    Put too much into the backstory to let it sit unused :)

    Morning Saturn, hope you're enjoying your weekend!

    Just curious (Because that's the kind of guy I am!) when I read the original River City recruitment post, it stated the characters were either 600BP or 1200Karma, are you looking for characters at a similar level of competance right out of the gate? I've begun to come up with a concept for what I'd enjoy playing, but knowing a general level of power would help ease into his background.

    Nosy I know, but hey, I like to do my research! :)

    It's meant to go above prime runners, into the likes of characters (mostly) mentioned only in the books. So, it will likely be that level, maybe higher.

    Made a character with the old chargen rules from the previous thread, will update if they change.

    Made a 1st generation dwarf who's spent decades as a UCAS commando NCO, training NCO, HTR team sergeant and training advisor, and mercenary. Over the years, he's developed quite a large family(3 generations and counting!), and built up a large compound in a remote location for his growing clan.
    He's reached the stage of retirement where he's too bored to play farmer, so he's started 'running on the side, as well as doing a decent side job repairing, building, and modifying armor.

    Building a pretty deep backstory for him, as well as family ties/contacts. He's got a pretty in depth family compound with lifestyle mechanics to back it up.

    As far as 'running and team stuff, he is primarily a melee heavy, though he has pretty solid infiltration skills, a large skill suite encompassing just about anything one would expect a soldier and commando of his experience to have.
    Also has a solid set of gun skills, and the hardware for them.

    And all the gear, fake SIN, fake licenses, and such that a shadowrunner needs. as well as Erased, to help with staying under the radar.

    Pretty sure I was involved in this game at some point, and also thought it a shame that we never got off the ground properly.

    Would definitely be interested in picking up again with the same character (Orc mystic adept infiltrator I believe? I'll dig out my old notes now)

    So, at the moment I'm putting together 2 games to run. Eclipse Phase, and after my irl group decided to quit Vampire, Shadowrun.

    So it'll probably take me a little while to set this one up, say a couple of months. With work, and stuff added in.

    I'm in two games and a third is in the works, so I'm going to pass as a player. However, I did want to drop in with an invite link to the discord we've been using to scoop up GitP Shadowrun players and GMs: https://discord.gg/NzegNY2

    Well, figure since I had interest and a sheet in the last one I might as well put one in here.

    What are the chargen rules?

    Likely the same as they were previously, but i'm setting up two games right now, with this game being a third. So it'll be a bit, that's why I'm not openly recruiting.

    I haven't played RPGs in years, but I played a little bit of the Shadowrun returns videogame and loved the hell out of it.

    I'd love to give it a shot, but you'd have to be a little patient because I'd be relearning everything

    So, I came up with an idea, to get into a game, without having to retrieve and alter story, and posts. Which, I'll get too, but it will take some time. Urban Brawl! The second most popular international sport.

    You would put together an Urban Brawl team, and play matches against other teams. How does that sound?

    Or, maybe Combat Biking, or Gladiatorial Fights. Any of the above would take some tweaks, but since it's mostly combat it should be simple enough to run after you figure out the rules.

    Urban Brawl, has the unique properties of actually being a fairly long game, so a few matches, should take up some decent time.
