Unless it is a tiny anchor you would probably need to be large sized

Nail bat was actually pretty good as long as you were not using cloud as a mage. No materia slots (or was it no materia growth?) but really fucking high base damage. Unfortunately basically everyone uses cloud as a red mage so it is basically never used

Yeah thats what i was thinking. Those games are already more than functionally complete, and have tons of splats and extra content. I dont really see what else they could do with it besides bringing the older ones up to the new rule standards with a new edition, but that is pretty easy to hack together yourself

Running Traveller Mongoose with my RL group, so far they are absolutely loving how crazy chargen is. I am also directly plagiarizing Anon3's campaign and setting it in the Trin's Veil subsector, starting on Trin. Luckily one of the group is as autismally interested in the trading system as I was so they will be slinging cargo and making mad bank in no time. I also have some ideas for more traditional RPG style plot hooks, namely being comissioned by one of the megacorps to take part in an Imperium sponsored exploration mission to a system that only recent was discovered to even exist. I am thinking of having Ancients fuckery have caused some kind of sensor obscuring effect that has only recently started to weaken, and maybe once they get there they will inadvertantly activate an army of ancient killbots or something that evolves into a sector wide threat.

Not gonna drop something like that until after they get a feel for the space ramblin lifestyle

I have dumb ideas for characters, like a merman barbarian who lives on the land and has a trident and gets mad when people ask him why he doesn't live in the ocean and a dhampir hunter with a giant leech companion who crawls around in the mud and wants to eat bloods.

After due deliberation, I have decided to run a Shadowrun game. A third one as I already run two

This one will be casual, 3-4 players max. It will be mainly text based. Maps may show up occasionally, but they will not be common.
Players will be detectives in Seattle, 2073. Your task will be to find the criminals - Organised crime, serial killers, runners, and if you can catch them corporate and political too, as well as anyone who is considered worthy of your time. It will not be combat heavy, a fair bit slower than the usual, and with less power involved than with the usual runners. But what you lack in power, you'll gain in being official detectives on important cases.

It may serve as an introduction to Shadowrun, if you are new to the setting or system. So if you already do know these, please be patient enough to allow the players who do not to explore the world and how things work.

Any interest in this?

Fourth. There will be modifications to chargen, but I'm still experimenting with that to see what makes for an appropriate level of power and skills

Keep in mind that while a shadowrunner is generally near high level military for their combat, you won't be. You're not the SWAT team going in to make the arrests. You're the guys getting the evidence and figuring out who to send the SWAT team after.
I might at some point let you go in among a SWAT team to support them, but in general you won't want to get into combat yourselves

And giving you the same amount of points as those runners would mean everyone starts with their investigating skills maxed out(Or a bunch of ex-military detectives), which would not be that great for gameplay, since everyone would be able to do the same

I ran a cop game once ages ago where I basically spent most of the character's points for them.

It was street resources, but I gave everyone a template of skills and attributes that they had to satisfy.

"You need to have at least 6 dice on athletics checks to represent the physical fitness requirement" for example would give people a choice between spending heavier on Str or Athletics (or the skill group), or if they had some cyberware bioware (highly unlikely given the resources) that would be okay too. Similar requirements for some combat skills (pistols then rifles or shotguns, unarmed or clubs) but also some social skills too. Can't be officer lunkhead who gets intimidated by the average street punk, can't give people tickets if you only communicate in grunts and gestures.

Just a thought if you're looking for a good way to handle that.

In the end it was a really good mix of officers. Some people went big on fighty stuff but still had to satisfy the minimum social skills and had their knowledge skills. Some people went harder on the smartguy charisma or intelligence stuff but couldn't start the game out as geniuses by dumping all their physical stuff, and could still contribute when they arrived on the scene at a shootout in a Stuffer Shack.

Never played 4th, but in 5th there are a lot of advantages and disadvantages that would not really apply if you are not a shadowrunner. For example having a SIN is a liability when you are a runner so you get a few points as recompense, but if you are officers of the law it kinda would not make any sense for you NOT to have one. System is probably rife with stuff like it, but i am not familar with 4th.

It is, there are a lot of those in fourth too, and part of what I'm doing is sifting through them for ones that I won't allow

Here we go. For now, this is the list of the basics you'll need to know for chargen
I can supply pdfs of Shadowrun as needed.

Players will be detectives who are hired by Lone Star. Hiring is done both internally and external- You do not need history with Lone Star to qualify.

This list is subject to change if I decide it needs some more work or find I missed something
Spoiler:
400bp(Default)

Qualities:
You get free(No points):
SIN
40 hour day job

You are not allowed:
Code of conduct(Included in dayjob, if you dont do your job or break the law too much you get in trouble)
Deep Cover
Erased
Escaped Clone

Amnesia(Everything) - You are allowed Amnesia(past)
Borrowed Time
Computer Illiterate
Dementia
Distinctive Style(Allowed to take it, but you will not get points for it)
Illiterate
Infirm
Mentally Handicapped
Paraplegic
Quadriplegic
Signature
SIN(Criminal)
Vendetta
Wanted

Notably allowed:
Records on File - It will be organised crime that has your full biometric data on file instead of corporate. This may lead to seriously bad situations


Skills:
Minimum requirements:
Physical:
5 dice: You are not the cops on patrol, so you have a lower requirement for physical matters than the police themselves. But you do need to at least keep up with things.
Climbing
Gymnastics
Running
Tracking
Pistols

3 dice: Don't drown
Swimming

Mental
7 dice: If you don't have this, you won't be hired. Why are you even a detective?
Computers
Data search


5 dice Things the boss wants you to at least be able to attempt. More will be better, of course
Ettiquette (Read: kissing the boss' ass)
Leadership
Perception(For a mage, you may take assensing instead of the perception requirement)
Negotiation

Gear:
You will get a free work related permit for all work related gear that is not fully illegal. Within reason. Other permits are decided on a case by case basis.
You are encouraged have transportation of your own to go to work. Public transit is unreliable, and your job may take you to places with only a bare minimum of connections.
If you do not have a gun, the office will supply one(1) with basic ammo for when you are on duty. This will be a very basic weapon.
Must have a lifestyle of at least low or better (Not allowed to be homeless). You may have a customised lifestyle, but again, you may not be homeless.
Must have a commlink. Doesn't need to be fancy, but it helps.
Jazz and Long Haul will be provided free of charge within reason. (Combat drug and a drug that makes you not need sleep, respectively)


Revision 1: Negotiation down to 5 instead of 7
Dropped con and intimidation requirements
Chemistry is out, I had thought it would mean you'd understand what the lab tells you happened, but fuck it that's their problem now. Let them explain like you explain computers to grandma
Swimming reduced to 3, so you don't drown if things go wrong

Been working through making my character. I think for the most part the required stuff is good, but i think overall it is just a bit much on the required skills. For example assuming you have all attributes at three (on average, some will be higher some may be lower) Taking the required skills is going to cost you 132 points, which is a pretty significant chunk of change. I just think that maybe gymnastics and swimming skill could be trimmed, and possibly chemistry. Chemsitry especially seems like a specialist skill rather than something every police detective is gonna be skilled in. However it is still certainly doable the way it is, and i may also be misunderstanding something about how character generation or gameplay works

Revised it with some things I thought of, chemistry is indeed out

Please do keep in mind that 5 dice is generally considered below average for a professional. They aren't really very high requirements as I expect players to pick their own expertise and reason why they would be hired

Alright, i THINK my character is done. Kinda just in a fuck off list in a word document because that is how i was best able to keep track of it, but despite what i thought i was actually able to make him the way i liked while staying within the guidelines, they did not restrict me as much as i thought. Is there a fillable charactersheet somewhere that i can use?

Standard for Shadowrun is Chummer

http://www.chummergen.com/

It can print your sheet/save as html sheet, or you can send over a .chum file

Do you prefer 4th over 5th?

Still doing CoC tomorrow, but pushing it back an hour and a half. Work for everyone?
In game, I play the A.I Firmware, the French cyborg C.U.R.I.E, Aubrie Allen, and the lizard scum Skulks-Through-Maintenance.

I indeed prefer 4th over 5th, mainly because I learned with 2nd and relearned with 3rd, then with 4th, and now I feel old as fuck so I'm sticking to this for now.

That, and it has all the splatbooks and content for it

-
CoC works for me, I think. I may get in some slight scheduling issues but it should work

Ah that's funny, I went through kind-of a similar process. Started with 2nd in Middle School and just followed the series for ages. I was really reluctant to get into 5th but after trying it a bit I think it's actually the best edition for maintaining balance and making sure dice pools and tests don't get insane. The limits system is pretty cool and I also like how they revamped the matrix. You can do a matrix run in the time it takes to run a regular (short) combat. It's only like 4-6 checks then you're done.

EDIT: You can put Chemistry in your list of requirements above (I've been so busy lately I'm only just now looking it over and cooking up a character, sorry) just make it the Chemistry knowledge skill not the active skill. Now your character has chemistry know-how (and spent their freebie points on it) instead of chemistry I-can-build-and-defuse-bombs
