Greetings! If you are reading this then that means my employer has found you worthy of our interest. As you know, The Penny Arcade Expo is starting soon. PAX 2071 will be one of the most profitable occasions this quarter, as well as hopefully restoring our company image in the area. We would like to protect our investment in this event. We will present to you a significant bonus if you can clean up the streets of Seattle to our liking. Any personnel you enlist to assist you in this matter will be rewarded as well.Please do not hesitate to use any means available to you. We will discuss the fine points of this arrangement later. I have left a Black IC encoded in this message, just in case a hacker gets his hands on it. We couldn't afford them having the heads up to this, now could we?

    PAX 2071! A Shadowrun Phalla.

    Presented By
    SR_Logo_Renraku.jpg

    Phalla?!
    Yes, phalla. Check out the main thread for more details.

    So this will be a pretty standard game then?
    No. This is Shadowrun.

    Well what is Shadowrun?
    835.jpg
    +
    thefellowshipofthering.jpg

    Or more accurately: Go go gadget wiki!

    Condensed version (Stolen from El Skid)

    THE RULES
    You may not communicate regarding the game with someone who is dead, unless there is some specific mechanic in place to do so. In that case, communication normally goes through the narrator.

    You may not use any anonymous method of communication to discuss the game. Forum-based PMs, external IMs, and e-mails are allowed as long as the person you are talking to knows who you are.

    You may not use screencaps to "prove" anything to anyone.

    Each Day you will start a rumor about another runner, calling them out as a rat or informant to Lonestar. Whoever has the most votes gets killed that night. Retract votes in Lime.

    VOTE CLOSES AT 9pm PST

    Post post post! 2+ a vote a day isn't too much to ask, is it?

    Clarifications
    This will probably have a lot more by tomorrow

    Disclaimer!
    I have done everything in my power to make this game as balanced as possible, and a huge huge thanks goes out to Infidel and Mr. Blarney for helping me with this. HOWEVER, I take full responsibility if somehow this ends up being imbalanced. I will continue to tweak and try to perfect things as best as possible before the game actually begins.

    On that cheery note...Sign up! in an appropriately festive manner. When you do, choose from either Troll, Orc, Human, Elf, or Dwarf as your race. These choices will probably have little to no effect on game mechanics. probably. For a handy list of insults and other Shadowrun slang, check out The Sixth World Wiki.

    Bonus Rules!
    -Inform me of any Proboards.
    -When you start a Rumor it should actually be incriminating in some way, after that anyone can just jump on the bandwagon. This is in place to provoke thematic or entertaining accusations.
    -Send all actions and queries to Mr. Johnson. If that's full then send em to Zellpher. If that's full you are asking too many damn questions.
    -REGARDING RPing: It's a phalla based off an RPG. Just don't take up a whole page with a 2 person convo or bog down the thread with too much of it.
    -NO USING ROLE PMs TO VERIFY ANYTHING
    The Shadowrunners! (or runners for short). You and your fellow runners perform a vital service to society. Balancing the power of the corporations through various acts of sabotage and murder under temporary employ by other corporations. These acts are commonly referred to as 'runs'. A notoriously fickle lot, no runner is crazy or stupid enough to die for a corporation(at least not on purpose) and if a better opportunity presents itself, it is snatched immediately. Known by their employers as deniable assets, the very existence of runners is refuted outright by the major corporations. Your objective is to survive this heatwave(cranking up of Lonestar activity). As well as any other threats which might present themselves. Remember, trust no-one.

    There's no way you have space for every single one ever. O_o Start a textfile if they're that crucial.

    Or better yet, keep a running archive at the proboard.

    Running archive at the (not-so-secret) proboard sounds like a good idea. You can then add to them your own personal result for each one (win, loss, eaten by zombies, etc.) and your chosen role in the thread.

    And I should sign up for this as an elf.

    You are the Knight of Prince Goltana's forces!

    Your dedication to Prince Goltana has been proven through thick and thin, but now he requires something else of you. It is a Knight’s job to protect those who cannot protect themselves, after all. Each night, you may choose one person to protect from a death that is not an execution. If you protect someone else, however, you will have a hard time protecting yourself…

    There is a slight chance for you to fail if you choose to protect only yourself. Your protection of other people is guaranteed, however.

    Please confirm that you recieved your role and ask any questions via PM.
