About the adventure

Welcome to LA chummer: the home of the rich and famous, the city of angels and the epicenter of Horizon Corporation's seat of power. Where celebrities and their fans take to palm tree laden streets during the day and at night gangers and trolls itching for the big score crawl out of the shadows looking for a way to the top. In the Sixth World anyone who's anyone that's climbed out of the gutters of mankind have either blood on their hands or a silver spoon in their mouths. or both. It's a city where some of the most famous murders have gone unsolved and covered up and no bodies have turned into legends. Hollywood has fallen on hard times, but Horizon is on the rise, looking to usher in a new golden age for tensile town. by hook or by crook things moving in the shadows are preparing to either make or break the city: there's a megacorp on the rise and a killer on the streets, stalking the city and leaving a bloody trail in it's wake. gangs are on edge and lonestar is ready to crack down. And that's where you come in. you're a shadowrunner. the jobs you take make gangers piss their pants and the law scream that you're still out there. you pulled yourself off grid and now you're looking for that big score that will put you on top. loyal to no one save your own code, you're the tipping point in this game. will you save this city from itself? or will you be what burns it to the ground?

Additional Details

How to prepare

you'll need a discord or roll20 account, both would be preferable. absolutely must have a microphone so we can communicate freely between each other. pre made characters will be accepted so long as i can look them over and approve them!

What I provide

i will have the books and character sheets ready to go, as well as dice bots (shadowrun uses A LOT of d6s we'll all be glad for that) and i'll have music provided in the background to add atmosphere.

Gameplay details

shadowrun has famously always been a game about 2 weeks of careful planning followed by 20 minutes of absolute mayhem: magic, guns and cyberware mingle together with a well thought out (or incredibly haphazard why the hell not) and executed plan that almost never goes off the way it should. i promise you weird science, thrilling combat and wild antics in a gritty cyberpunk setting. we'll have fun!

How will character creation work

if you have a character ready to go let me see what you've got, i'll probably approve it. character creation will happen at session zero, and i'll guide you through it to build something awesome! if you just want to jump in to it i'll also provide pregens to select from.
