Shadowrun. [Cyberpunk/Fantasy]

Post by Z4NNA » Wed Dec 20, 2017 8:57 pm

"Shadowrun takes place several decades in the future (2050 in the first edition, currently 2079[note 1]). The end of the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar ushered in the "Sixth World",[note 2] with once-mythological beings (e.g. dragons) appearing and forms of magic suddenly emerging. Large numbers of humans have "Goblinized" into orks and trolls, while many human children are born as elves, dwarves, and even more exotic creatures. In North America, indigenous peoples discovered that their traditional ceremonies allow them to command powerful spirits, and rituals associated with a new Ghost Dance movement let them take control of much of the western U.S. and Canada, where they formed a federation of Native American Nations. Seattle remains under U.S. control by treaty as a city-state enclave, we will be roleplaying here.

In parallel with these magical developments, the setting's 21st century features technological and social developments associated with cyberpunk science fiction. Megacorporations control the lives of their employees and command their own armies; the ten largest have extraterritoriality, such as currently enjoyed by foreign heads of state. Technological advances make cyberware (mechanical replacement body parts) and bioware (augmented vat-grown body parts implanted in place of natural organs) common. The Computer Crash of 2029 led to the creation of the Matrix, a worldwide computer network that users interact with via direct neural interface. When conflicts arise, corporations, governments, organized crime syndicates, and even wealthy individuals subcontract their dirty work to specialists, who then perform "shadowruns" or missions undertaken by deniable assets without identities or those that wish to remain unknown. The most skilled of these specialists, called shadowrunners, have earned a reputation for getting the job done. They have developed a knack for staying alive, and prospering, in the world of Shadowrun."

((This will be a roleplay set in the shadowrun universe. I ask for the most minimal of character sheets.))
Example.
Name/Alias: ((any ol' name will do))
Race: ((Elf, human, dwarf, ork, troll))
Job/specialization: ((decker, street samurai, mage, etc.feel free to make a customized character preferably within expectationss of the shadowrun universe.))
((No god modding and all that good stuff, you know the rules :P))

Alias: The Corbeau
Race: Elf
Job: Blade Specialist Shaman

Location: The Seamstress' Union, bar and secret hideout for shadowrunners.

In the basement of the seamstress' union, amongst the illefal vendors and shady characters, a elf woman sits before the mage aljorn.

"This should be the last one." He says in a deep voice. His hands float over the elf womans bare arm as mystic rune tattoos form on her skin.

The woman nods in appreciation at the elf mage. She looked to be in her mid 30s, her caramel skin curved around features that could be described as handsome. Her brown eyes spoke of a wisdom beyond her years and where traced with a thick black eyeliner. She had various symbols tattooed around the edges of her face and along the shaved sides of her head. Long jet black dreads row along the top of her head, pulled back into a messy ponytail with bits of purple cloth. A scarf was draped around her neck along with several charms and rune carved bones, most notibly a crows skull with rubys for eye and a third ruby ibetween its eye. She wore a sleevless cloak made of a dark purple material, the hood lay draped over the black feathers that covered her shoulders. A scarf had been wrapped around her waist several times and a belt of throwig knives lay over it. Her cloak continued down into a long strip of ccloth at lay inbetween her cyberware legs. Each leg disappeared into metaal plating halfway down her thighs. They continued down into robotic dual jointed legs painted a metallic black, they resembled the hind legs of an animal, sharp clawed feet and all.

"Thanks aljorn, as masterful as ever." She says as she admires the runic tattoos that flow down her bare arms. On her right forearm she wears a gauntlet with a commlink and a single throwing knife tucked into the wrist. Gauntlet is decorated with various shamanic symbols and on her other wrist she wears many charms and stones.

"Anything else i can do for you?" Aljorm asks as the woman stands up. She was a tall elf to begin with but her prosthetic legs made her tower over all but the biggest trolls.

"Not at the moment, ive got to meet george, he claims to have hired some runners for my job. They where told to me george at the bar upstairs so they should be arriving shortly." The woman walks towards the elevator with a surprising amount of grace.

"Safe travels, Raven" Aljorn waves as she leaves.

((We will be roleplaying as a shadowrunner team, now is your que! Hop on in :3 also sorry for super long post, by no means do i expect everyone to type that much every time. I just like to describe my character in detail on my first post.))

(is it safe to assume we've done runs together before?)

Alias: Longshot
Race: Elf
Job: Sniper/DM

Longshot sits at a table, his trademark motorcycling helmet shut over his face. Clad in full black motorcycling armour, with black sport riding leathers underneath, it is difficult to tell what he looks like. The best description for him is 'average height, average weight." On his back, a long gun case, and a barely perceivable bulge on his left leg where his Ares lies in wait. His hard black combat boots scrape against the ground as he stands, and their soles click quietly across the floor as he follows Corbeau up the stairs.
Jeb? Yes... that was what they used to call me. Jeb the Gamer1.
That was my name.
