Cosmic Era Game

<< < (2/20) > >>

Shadoweagle:
Sounds cool, though I have no knowledge of any Sci fi type gaming, so I will opt for reading along with the rp enthusiastically.

Scrasamax:
So that's 4/3rds of the people I need to run the game. And I feel like there is enough interest in doing basically a shadowrun style game.

Some character concepts just to toss out. We are now brainstorming

Bounty Hunter
Parapsychic Mentalist (Firestarter)
Special Forces/Military and Paramilitary
Surrogate Operator/Droner
Soldier or Mercenary
Liaison or attache/Face
Gun Fighter (as per Equilibrium the Christian Bale movie)
Hacker
Arcanotech/Parapsychic Investigator
Smuggler
Gang Member/Career Criminal
Street Samurai/Cyborg
Weapon Specialist
Parapsychic Martial Artist (Street Fighter/Mortal Kombat)
Scientist/Engineer/Technician
Other Profession

Races:
Human
Augmen (genetically modified human)
Clone
Neo-Ethnic Race (technically augmen, but elves and shizznit)
Seibertronian


A few caveats:
Seibertronians cannot be cyborgs, nor can they use parapsychic abilities.
Clones are second class citizens
Neo-Ethnic races are subject to their own forms of discrimination (if you are a 'night elf' expect to be treated like a sexual vending machine)

Dozus:
After reading your Nipponism post, I'm kicking around the idea of a Brazilian parapsychic street samurai. Someone from a hellish favela of Nueva Sao Paolo, who survived the streets by learning martial arts and honing latent parapsychic abilities. He got work with an illegal zaibatsu outpost in Brazil, got cybernetic implants, started security and paramilitary jobs. When the USSA shut down the zaibatsu, he went back to the streets to pick up whatever work he could get.

I like the character concept, but I would ask that you either pursue either the parapsychic avenue or the cybernetic augmentation. Both would work with the initial concept. You can go with a street samurai who has emerging and somewhat uncontrolled parapsychic abilities, or a parapsychic martial artist who is just starting the path to becoming a cyborg.

Dozus:
That's agreeable. I like the former idea best: a warrior steeped in Nipponese samurai culture who's discovering his own natural parapsychic talents.
