Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
Pregens:
Anarchist Techie
Argonaut Xenoarcheologist
Barsoomian Freelance Journalist
Brinker Genehacker
Criminal Hacker
Extropian Smuggler
Hypercorp Black Marketeer
Jovian Spy
Lunar Ego Hunter
Mercurial Investigator
Mercurial Scavenger
Scum Enforcer
Socialite Escort
Titanian Explorer
Ultimate Merc
Venusian Negotiator
Direct Action Mercenary*
Earth Survivor*
Maker Nomad Bot Jammer
Martian Ranger
Mobile Scientist
Oligarch
Oversight Auditor
Scavenger
Siftrunner Techie*
Solarian Researcher*
Synthmorph Activist
Triad Soldier

Someone has posted them here, under sample characters. Feel free to ask any questions.

I have put an asterisk by some of them. These have unusual morphs, which means that you might not get to play them as is. Like the Solarian. If the mission is on a tin-can habitat, you won't be able to us its whale morph. Also, I think the Earth Survivor is an unworkable choice.

Also, we can make some small changes to the pregens. If you want to be a hacker, but not alligned with the Criminal faction, we can easily change that. This goes for the motivations as well.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
From just a quick glance over all of those pregen characters, Im leaning towards Ultimate Merc.

Before we start deciding... do we need to talk as a group about what characters we will use?

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
I don't think that is super important, those things usually work themselves out. I always think that the choice of characters from the players to the GM is an order. If there is no hacker, well, then the players want less of that in their game. That being said, the pregens are all fairly good.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
Now to see if we can break the curse of Eclipse Phase PBF here.gulp

I'm going through the rules now, so it might be awhile before I have a solid choice, but I'm happy to let someone else be the musclebound ego. Anything else, I'm up for. I'll probably just tweak a pregen considering the depth of char gen when we see an obvious hole.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
That's why I am running a short one, to ensure that it will be completed.

Don't sweat learning all the rules, I will try to guide us through this. The character sheet will include information on what all the equipement does. That's the important part in many ways.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
I'm thinking one of these:

Argonaut Xenoarchaeologist

Titanian Explorer


Or maybe go the other way and be one of these:

Mercurial Investigator

Lunar Ego Hunter

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
The sooner I can start adding to the wiki, the better. The merc is good for combat. The journalist is an all-round social/stealth/investigation. Samuel's choices work well, though I am not that big a fan of the ego hunter, I don't like the special powers much. But that's just me.

By the way, this is a firewall mission. That means your characters are a lotal part of your faction, but you also believe that there are an X-threat to humanity that only Firewall may fight, even if your faction is hostile to them.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
The explorer looks very good. I should have put an asteriks by the investigator, since her type is not welcome all places.

I would say the Auditor. The others have more of an anarchistic sympathy.

As long as the character fits in with the rest of the group, I'm happy with it!

The sooner I know, the sooner I can get to work. Don't worry so much about what the other person plays, and just pick one.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
Got the first three wiki pages ready. I will change their location when you have names for your characters.

http://rpggeek.com/wiki/page/Barsoomian
http://rpggeek.com/wiki/page/Ultimate
http://rpggeek.com/wiki/page/Eclipse_Phase_test (Extropian)

So, if you could name your character that would be great.

There are some other changes you can do if you like.
You can change the faction, rep and background, you can change the motivations, and you can change the skills related to language, interests, networking and profession.

If you like, you can also change or expand to the story of the character. What is in the pregen file is posted at the very bottom.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
Barsoomian updates made (I think). I left all the mechanics alone, since I don't know enough about either them or the world to make a meaningful decision. If anybody spots anything obvious, though, please do let me know.

Meet Rex Redrocks, freelance journalist and former one-hit wonder pop star.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
I like him already.

I forgot to say that many of the options you can change are detailed on the wiki page I mentioned earlier. Still, if you don't want to change anything, that's cool too.

Re: Upcoming game [OOC]
Chung Dae-Ho is up.

I twisted him to more of an inner system past (more c-rep than @-rep, similar with networking). Detailed the traits, and gave him a background. I also switched his subverting authority motivation to an eye-for-an-eye revenge motivation. Authority's fine, unless it gets in the way devil
