This is the OOC thread for the Texas Hold’em Run
The run happens between the San Angelo and San Antonio region between Texas and Atzlan
Please post a link to your character here for quick reference.October 13, 2018 at 7:07 pm #9825
Character sheet here:
I’ll need to scrub it a bit to see if any errors came up in editing, but should be essentially correct.

Put up an IC post. Wrote it earlier today not knowing how the intro scene would go, so pardon the awkward transition near the end where I shift from where I ended the scene to having Al arrive at the meet.
I don’t really understand things like links, but my sheet is on Obsidian Portal, link at the top of the page.
But here’s my attempt at the direct link:
Did it work?October 13, 2018 at 10:03 pm #9828
Links works perfectly 🙂October 14, 2018 at 1:55 am #9829

I am a bit busy now, I’ll need a week or two to be ready.October 15, 2018 at 1:49 am #9840
First IC post is up.
I usually write in the present tense but this one bounces back and forth between the past and the present to describe how she finds herself in Texas. Long story short, she went to Denver on a shopping trip and found out about the job there.
I made an NPC page for one of her contacts: https://stormy-waters-2075.obsidianportal.com/characters/npc-longshadow
Ichante summons an F7 guardian spirit before going inside: Magic 7 + Summoning 6 + Spec 2 + Power Focus 2: 17d6t5 9 hits, good start, but capped at 7 hits by Force.
Spirit resist summoning: Force 7: 7d6t5 1 hit Ooo, a nice subservient one! 6 services total.
Soaking 2 drain: Willpower 6 + Intuition 6: 12d6t5 6 hits, no drain
Optional powers are Concealment and Elemental Attack (Lightning), although she’s tempted to ask for Animal Control because Arms’ probably has rats.
For good measure she’ll also spin up an Increase Charisma spell at F4: Magic 7 + Spellcasting 6 + Power Focus 2: 15d6t5 3 hits, Charisma is now 3 (6), sustained via Heightened Concentration
Soaking 2S drain: Willpower 6 + Intuition 6: 12d6t5 1 hit, ahh, luck finally gave out. She takes 1 box of Stun.
Because she wasn’t expecting to work, Ichante doesn’t have a lot of her gear available. Here’s what she has at the meet:
== Armor ==
Ares Victory: Wild Hunt 12 + Gear Access + Liner – Fire Resistance (6) + Holster
== Weapons ==
Cavalier Evanator + Electronic Firing + Folding Stock + Laser Sight
Ammo: Flechette Rounds (Submachine Guns) ×20
Ammo: Regular Ammo (Submachine Guns) ×20
Ammo: Stick-n-Shock (Submachine Guns) ×20
== Commlink ==
Fairlight Caliban R7 + Trodes + Subvocal Mic
== Gear ==
Contacts Rating 3 + Image Link + Flare Compensation + Polychromic Lens
Earbuds Rating 3 + Sound Link + Audio Enhancement R2
Glasses Rating 4 + Vision Enhancement Rating 3 + Vision Magnification
Power Focus (Sioux) Rating 2
Qi Focus R1 (UNBONDED, Linguistics)
Reagents, per dram (Sioux) ×40
Slap Patch, Trauma Patch
Fake SIN (National PCC) R5 + Fake License (Mage License) R5 + Fake License (Firearms License) R5October 15, 2018 at 4:41 am #9842
@tecumseh the OP coding you asked for is on a hidden tab on the excel character generator I linked… hope that helps.
NPCs usually get a post in the ‘contacts’ section on the OP wiki, so if you could link it in to an appropriate section with a character link that would be fab. Shout if that sounds like gibberish and I’ll sort it for you!October 15, 2018 at 9:19 am #9848
I’ll be making a tweak on negative qualities as soon as I have some time to dig through books. I’d mis-clicked on his phobia as common rather than uncommon, so I’ll fix that and find a few more points elsewhere.October 15, 2018 at 1:14 pm #9860
@gilga: i assume Becky won’t have forgotten Al’s distinctive appearance in a few small years 😁October 15, 2018 at 2:17 pm #9863
Yeah, this will be a fun reunion.
Whichever one of us posts noticing the other first is fine with me.
I am stuck with RL for a few hours – will be posting IC later this evening.October 15, 2018 at 2:26 pm #9864
Nope… she won’t…
@Jack I did not know how to rebuild her in prime, as there is no way to have more than ‘A’ skills, and I envision her picking up a few new skills over the years. So instead I just dumped a bunch of karma to bring her from normal to prime sum to 4. (about 400). Did not optimize her, but made her a bit more effective as muscle/face.October 15, 2018 at 2:33 pm #9866
That’s fine 😀October 15, 2018 at 3:40 pm #9871
Sorry for long Preston post. After over a year away from him it was just so fun to dust him off that I may have gone overboard on details and the voices — I’ll try to tone that down going forward.
The gist of the post is that he’d been there earlier than his IC sequence would suggest. But between blandness and disguise (and not being awakened) he just didn’t stand out to anyone coming in earlier.
Just for continuity reasons: Preston got to know Mercy’s character Lady Tanya Marisart quite well in Tangled Currents (2075, I think). Had she worked with Al or Jazz by that point? (that he may have heard of them).October 15, 2018 at 3:41 pm #9872
I found the Contacts section of the wiki. Looks like you already added Longshadow, so thanks for that. I’ll make sure to add Contacts as I write them up.
First draft of the 20 Questions is done on my character sheet.
At one point I added a “Player Secret” to outline some of the character development I see happening, and tried to make that visible to you, but now I don’t even see it myself.
Also, the map link in the first OOC post doesn’t work well for me. (The map is greyed out.) Here’s a map of North America that’s built on top of Google Maps that does a dynamite job of showing national borders. I thought that might be useful for our purposes:

If my dates are correct, Tanya did not meet Al until after Tangled Currents.October 15, 2018 at 4:28 pm #9876
Wow, that is exactly the map that I was looking for 😀
Added “El Mariachi plays” to the map https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LYOb2L75qs3tBdZDu9u-A_lCvSrVefKV&usp=sharingOctober 15, 2018 at 5:07 pm #9879
I came very close to laughing out a mouthful of coffee at our introduction to our Johnson — nicely done Jack Spade!October 15, 2018 at 6:00 pm #9882
Cross-posted with Beta – so I then added a few more paras to react to his post.October 15, 2018 at 6:07 pm #9883
When I was working on my post I kept refreshing the page in another window, expecting to see you beat me to it — it is that time of day where we cross post :p
ETA: Adam, your phrasing of “revealed himself as a player” just gave me an idea for a one-shot I’ll probably never run … Any of you ever read A Night in the Lonesome October, by Roger Zelazney? 😀 (in which Jack the Ripper’s dog narrates their efforts to save the world)
