    Becky said “Well, nice to meet you Al. Although, I won’t let anyone else drive *My* car, I can appreciate a fellow driver. I always found the autopilot too predictable… and slow.” She grinned and said “and about the precious thing, you need to see my Katana if you want to appreciate true beauty. ”

    “Torrent is collecting some serious mojo, which means that I am lucky to even be included. I drive, fight sneak and charm. Not in any particular order. ”

    When Forty showed up Becky said with a completely serious tone and not a hint of a smile “Eggs donation, we came here to create werewolves… Interested?”. She paused and allowed it to sink, hoping to hear some laughter. It was a risk to respond an insult with a joke, but Becky tried to start out okay.

    She then added:
    “Seriously, Torrent, the orc gentleman, seems to be looking for mojo for his gig. Your aura got you a job for tonight – congrats. I am Becky, this gentleman is Al and I did not quite get the name of the dog. “

    Becky smiled back at Torrent and said “Right… Torrent” and grinned, wondering if the man was actually named Torrent or that was his street name. Probably the latter she concluded. She took some time to assense Al before he approached – wondering if she could get some insight on the man that brings a dog to a pub. Or was it that the dog came alone? No incomprehensible.

    When Al introduced himself she answered “My name is Becky not precious. Torrent said that he had a job this is all I know
    So I am just glad that I am on his list for tonight. He seemed pretty definitive that he wanted you, so I guess the question is if you’d rather pass out in some alley or work tonight. ” she grinnd.

    By the way, there are belts/bracelets that become swords and daggers, but they are availability 14 – is there a way to obtain these in this game? I totally see Becky using these rather than carrying a huge sword on her back.

    Becky said to Torrent “Perhaps we can include that one over there, she has potent magic and seem to know how to handle herself in a fight.” She said and hinted Forty that was sitting alone and it seemed that people tried to avoid accidently forming eye contact with her. Shrugging she “I take it we are not in a hurry because that drunken man with odd etiquette seem to be a drink or two from passing out. Won’t see much good from him before noon” Stopping herself she said “I am sorry sir, I tend to be bossy when I am excited, did not mean to intrude you probably know your work better than me. My name is Becky by the way.” she said and extended her hand to Torrent. Excited Becky grinned and tried to guess who are the people that torrent would pick. She greeted Al as he approached, figuring that if the Johnson selected him despite being so wasted he had to be someone of virtue.

    So I’ll make it some ‘other’ asshole in that club. I’ll edit later today – would not make much of a change to the post: it will be another ass:
    saying something “Is that trog bothering you?”

  • gilga

    Oh sorry, for miss reading it, I can edit if you like, I was confused by the phrase Al tipped his glass at the guy (but I am not native speaker so it happens sometimes.) I could edit if you prefer.

    Oh and no hard feelings about the two getting in the wrong foot it is not like drunken Al could make a good first impression one way or the other.

    (Should I edit the post? I really don’t mind).

    “Does that trog bothers you?” said what Becky summarized as Jackass , racist scum.

    “Eham… We are kind of in the middle of something, so buzz off. ”
    She said without letting her negative feelings get to the tone of her voice. It was not said as an insult.
    It was said as a correct manner of putting the man back to his place, to be assertive without being aggressive. Not that she expected much from the ‘proposition’… Still, Becky wanted to hear the proposal, act offended that it was sexual, spill the drink at the orc’s fancy suit and buzz off to drive and cool off.

    It was apparent for her from the moment she entered that Basil’s was not the place for a serious runner. It was yet another ‘wannabe’ place for people that watched too many trids… Heck, they do not even let people bring in the iconic Katana. How can the Johnson even recognize a proper runner like that? Yes, definitely a poorly invested tip. Still, she had to hear that wiseass for herself before she triggered.

    It allows you to excert a minor form of mind control and give a brief command that your target is compelled to follow.
    Here is what is wrriten in Stolen souls.

    This power channels the adept’s magic into his voice
    to enhance the modulation and pitch, subliminally influencing the actions of any listeners. The adept takes a
    Complex Action to give a simple but forceful command
    (five words or less) to the target, making an Opposed
    Test with Leadership + Charisma against the target(s)
    Willpower + Intuition. If the adept succeeds in the test,
    the target uses his next action to either carry out the
    command or stands confused (gamemaster’s choice,
    but the more net hits achieved the more likely it is for the
    target to obey the adept’s command). Such commands
    carry no weight beyond the immediate impetus, and
    the affected characters will quickly reassert their wits,
    returning to their original course of action. If multiple individuals are targeted, use the largest dice pool among
    the defenders and add 1 die per additional target (to a
    maximum of six individuals). Commanding Voice may
    only be used on metahumans who can directly hear and
    understand the adept’s words. It has no effect when the
    voice is amplified or broadcast via technological means
    (e.g., wireless transmission or loudspeaker). It is also less
    effective on subsequent uses against the same target.
    Apply a cumulative –2 dice pool penalty for each use
    within the preceding 24 hours.

    Yes, thats me. No idea, it just took first and last name and connected them. Then when I understood that the forum worked like that and changed them to gilga. It did not change back, but yes I did some serious effort for this game I hope we have fun.

    For Becky, it was yet another night of looking for work. She managed to somehow support her debt by doing odd jobs for her contacts but these also grew tired for the shadowrunner wannabe and waited for her to get out of her ‘phase’. Regardless, they had other more reliable options so Becky had no chance to get much more from them. She needed a real job quickly, and was beginning to question the wisdom in breaking free from the Mafia. She arrived at Basil’s only lightly armed. A tiny crossbow folded up on one her thighs and a knife on the other. She would not leave home any less armed – and if she could she would have brought in the katana as well.

    Becky smiled at the orc and said “A buissness proposition…” she took a sip from her beer, and seemed distracted for a moment as she assensed the orc. Becky was actually trying to decide if by ‘buissness proposition’ he meant sex or perhaps (as unlikely as it sounded given her success in the last months) if he actually had a paying job for her. Regardless of her success in reading the man, she said “You got my ear” she looked at his eyes and clicked her beer with his drink. Politely refusing to be be bought a drink.

    Okay, updated Becky and all her contacts in OP.
    I decided to make them their own characters so that others can use them as well.
    I re did everything but now I kind of like her which is the most important.

    I am ready – I’ll see if I can do something about OP.

    Alright, remade my char (Becky Jones) and story, made her an adept with magic 2, shortly after awakening. (and a Dryad).

    Next is to come up with 40 points of extra contacts and expand the ones from chargen.

    Meet Becky my beginner missionist mage and follower of Dove.
    Have not written her story but is a street grown young adult that follows Christ.
    Helping unfortunate and running the only clinic which is truly free. She is also in debit to the local crimelord as she borrowed money for medical supplies and she is not keen of taking money from the people who needs her the most.

    She descends to the shadow to pay for her loan which she understand will never pay itself. Here is the crunch, I hope that she is a good fit to this game. I tried to create a runner which is making her first steps as a criminal (there are no saints in the 5th world), oh and she drives well for an unaugmented non rigger 😉
