Shadowrun 6th edition

Recommended Posts

I am interested in running some missions of Shadowrun 6th edition.  Anyone up to be a player for this?  My preference would be to run on Tuesdays.  I have pretty extensive experience running past editions of Shadowrun, no experience with the system is required.  Either PM me or respond to this topic if you are interested.

SR6 is pretty much brand new, having only been released in June. It’s the only edition I haven’t played personally, but a quick skim of the rulebook doesn’t make it look radically different from SR5.

There is a Shadowrun "League" at GG on Tuesday nights. Random GMs and random players in pre-generated single single session missions sort of thing.

As far as I can tell from a cursory skim of their forums, the league is 5e until the company officially updates the league to the new edition. Still, might be a good place to go to find like-minded shadowrun enthusiasts, like if you need more players.

Exorcist 

Real Name Siobhan O'Donovan
Team Role Face / Magical Support 
Ethnicity & Metatype Irish-American Elf                        
Born 2052 Sex Female Height 6'0"  Weight 150 lbs.  

Description
Christian Theurgists are generally uncomfortable around spirits and summoning, Siobhan O'Donovan is one of the few exceptions to that rule. Orphaned after her parents where victims of the Universal Brotherhood incident of 2055, Siobhan was taken in by a Catholic orphanage just outside of Chicago. When she was in her early teens, her latent magical talent began to manifest and she was taken in by the Order of St. Sylvester. The Order of St. Sylvester is a Catholic-ordained order of monks, priests, and lay people dedicated to the use of beneficial magic, promote magical awareness within the Church, and to investigate magical phenomena.

O'Donovan was educated up to a high school graduate by the Order, but given more in-depth schooling on magical theory and exorcism rites. Since taking to the shadows, under the name of Exorcist, O'Donovan has earned a rep for taking on a wide variety of mission ranging from the charitable to the reprehensible. But whatever she does, there's always a certain tinge of moral superiority of a holy crusader.

Exorcist has cultivated a large network of friends, allies, and associates in her short-time in Seattle. Most are the short of shady, street-level ne'er-do-wells that most folks in the shadows seem to know... But she's also on good terms with the local Bishop, for reasons that neither one of them will divulge

Math! Tweaked some karma expenditure for efficiency.

I have a question about character creation.

If you choose a metatype do you pay Karma for the racial qualities?

i.e. Elves have racial quality of Low-light vision. In qualities the cost is 6 karma. does this come out of your starting karma or is it bonus?

It's not worded very well in the book, but no, you do not need to pay Karma for the Racial Qualities that come with your Metatype. Nor do they count towards the six Qualities at character creation limit. They are, essentially, free.

It should also be pointed out that if you have Racial Qualities that are tied to your natural body, like the low-light vision of elves, you will lose that ability if you replace that body part with cyberware. So an elf with cybereyes can no longer see in the dark... at least, not unless you also buy low-light or thermographic vision mods for said cybereyes.
