Intro to Shadowrun 5e

  • Sep 7, 2013 · 6:00 PM
  • Bob Kay

Update: I have comfortable room for 8 total players, we just had 2 drop out so we have room for 2 more tonight.

With Shadowrun 5e coming out [apparently never] and the start of the Packers schedule the next Sunday, I wanted to try to squeeze in an Intro to Shadowrun 5e session. We'd be looking for players, GM, times/days to play and going over the new rules.

If you're interested, let me know. The .pdf is available now (I have it) and the book should be out [never]. Start thinking about your character and type of campaign you'd like to play in.

    I think the obisidian portal site is going to be a great place for Bios and journal type entries for characters in the campaign. That being said I looked over Bob's character sheet posted there and I don't like their format. If it's all the same to you guys I'd prefer to see a sheet with priorities selected along with the skills, attributes, qualities, gear and magic/resonance abilities. Again, once I've got a handle on things Obisidian Portal will be a fantastic resource for everything.

    I'm sorry if that seems like a drag, but it'll be easier to track it this way... rather than unraveling what obisidian portal has done ;)

    If you have any questions shoot me an email. [masked].

      I used the doc to make the one on ObPort, but I didn't like their char. sheets either.

      September 9, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Got it, bob. I'll look it over the spreadsheet in the next day or two and post some feedback.

    I just signed up for the Obsidian Portal, I have never heard of it. But I will poke around and try to get something set up.

  • Josh R.

    Good mix for new and experienced players. No one looked down on the noobs for not knowing what they were doing.

    Here's a start to the site. Add your character under the Character tab

  • Bob K.

    Thanks to Mark who decided to give GM'ing a try. We got together and settled on characters. If the group wants I can add/create a webpage (wait... how about Josh?) where we can input our characters and ideas, like Obsidian Portal or something. We'll plan for October for our next game. Get those character backgrounds to Mark so he can plan out a game. When I finish my Troll I'll post it for you guys to see too - he's changed a bit since last night, he might actually be useful.

      He's good. Babysitting issue for tonight. He'll be 1 on Friday!

      I'm sure my wife and kids would love to watch/play him...just a thought.

      September 7, 2013

  • Mark S.

    Any preliminary thoughts on characters? Before I dive into creation I'd love to hear thoughts on what people want to play. I'm trying to avoid overlap as best I can.

    September 4, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Why settle?

      September 5, 2013

    • Bob K.

      Why stop at priority A, just choose some obscure splatbook from 2nd edition and make up some stats and items to UberMensch your character.

      September 7, 2013

  • Bob K.

    Email me if you need directions or a phone #. See you between 5:30 and 6 tonight.

    We will bring drinks for us to help out. We normally drink little other than water or the occasional energy drink :-)

      I have water, we're usually pretty low-key. We're all adults, some married with kids, so we're pretty tame.

  • Russ

    So where can we find the PDF at?

    September 2, 2013

    • Bob K.

      check your email for a possible source

    My wife and I would like to attend to meet more players and enjoy the new version

      Yikes!!! Better stock up on soda!! Any help is appreciated friends.

    Holy Karp, we have peoples.

    I got the pdf, and I'm looking at the new character creation system. I like it. I'm not nearly familiar enough with the Shadowrun universe to be able to run a game. I would love to play in one, though.

    September 1, 2013

  • Bob K.

    aargh...my book has been delayed (Amazon!!) until SEPTEMBER 27th. Besides GenCon has anyone seen the 5e Shadowrun book in stores? I can still host, we'll just have to use the .pdf. Suggestions?

    August 30, 2013

    • Mark S.

      I vote Bob ;)

      Since Bob was nice enough to pass along the PDF I'll bring my clunky laptop to view it. Yeah amazon did us both dirty.

      August 30, 2013

    • Bob K.

      We can discuss it, but I'm hoping someone wants to run it. I can but you know how that turned out last time :(. I'd still be willing to host though.

    I'm in! Lets blow the arms of this mother!

      I love the enthusiasm!

    • Adam

      Damn you Eric. Leave Jakes arms out of this

      August 29, 2013

  • Bob K.

    Got the .pdf full version now. Seems a lot is the same, some new limits. If I DM There will also be some house rules for mages though.

    August 25, 2013

  • Bob K.

    GoogleDocs should have the 5th edition info released so far. If you're interested, each section has some nice fiction that helps define the game. Check it out. If you want access to the files send me your email so I can add you to the drive permissions.

    August 22, 2013

  • Ryan

    Never played Shadowrun before

    August 21, 2013

    • Bob K.

      The rules will be new for all of us, but feel free to check around for some fiction or I can forward the 5 rules pre-releases if you want a preview. Yes...bring d6's (plus I have a ton)

      August 21, 2013

    • Bob K.

      I'm going to try to google drive the 5 pdf's I have and send it out to the email addresses I have. Not sure if it will work.

      August 22, 2013

  • Josh R.

    Hi Bob I interested in joining the Shadowrun game. I haven't played Shadow run in years. Can I join your game?

    August 21, 2013

    • Mark S.

      You were fine, Bob! If anything just running with a core rulebook will make it easier to keep characters within the realm of sanity ;)

      Actually I kind of liked where your tabula rasa campaign was heading you could always reboot that if you wanted to be lazy!

      August 22, 2013

    • Bob K.

      Or you could take it over ;)

      August 22, 2013

  • Ryan

    Just let me know what I will need to do.

    August 21, 2013

    • Bob K.

      Ryan, you'll do fine. The rules will all be new, but you'll already fit in with the group- you're cool, dog...you're cool
