    Chougou: halfling (runt korobukuru?) rigger

    Post by chougou on Mon May 07, 2018 1:18 am



    This is the closest thing that I could find in imagining what chougou would look like, he is an orphan runt of a dwarf-type so I'm assuming korobukuru and he was taken in by a shop keeper that kept him in the back of his shop doing various chores for him until he discovered that he had a penchant for machinery. The shop keeper exploited his labor and kept him chained to a desk where chougou was kept for 10+ years.

    Chougou isn't his given name, if he ever had one, chou meaning ugly (丑) and gou meaning dog (狗); this is just what the shop keeper called him. He hasn't spoken much to anyone in his time being imprisoned, but has found ways to connect to the matrix in forums (lol, like this one I guess) and eventually will have been rescued from there or broken out, but I don't know how that will have happened yet as maybe it's part of the story?

    Anyway he has a love of all things mechanical and uses them to escape the inabilities of his body and dreams of making a mechanical suit for himself one day and doing good in the world as he really is very sweet at heart (if not too deranged from loneliness) and is very excited to be involved in anything in the real world.

    I have never made a proper Shadowrun character and would appreciate any advice anyone has on making his stats! Other than that looking forward to playing with you guys. This world is very detailed and interesting, well done to our benefactor.

    Chougou's shortened origin story:

    Abandoned as a baby, Chougou was picked up and kept as a pet by a violent man who owned an electronics repair store. Chougou knew only violence and bare subsistence until one day when his captor threatened to kill him once he caught him for some nonsensical infraction of the rules.

    Chougou was deformed and couldn't run very fast, but his "owner" was very drunk and extremely mad. He believed that the man was going to kill him this time, or maybe throw him out on the streets to starve. He had to do something.

    Chougou had watched him fixing things and could see how stupidly the man did everything. He started fixing things that night and got through more than he thought he would, eventually when the man woke up he made Chougou do the repairs again because he didn't believe he could have done it. He made him work all day. After that he fed Chougou cold noodles and it seemed like things were going to be looking up. Until the man locked him in the back room and forced him to slave for a living.

    It was better than dying, but not much. Eventually after many years though, Chougou came to basically run the business through online avatars and robots up front, and was able to gather materials and money for himself using stolen identities and secret accounts. The man eventually moved away to a safer neighborhood after all the money that Chougou had made for him, but Chougou created a plan to become free. Tricking the man to go attack his ex-wife's new husband in a plan that he had stylized from his favorite trid shows about Shadowrunners, things went terribly wrong though and his captor died in the aftermath; and Chougou was free.

    Chougou kept running the shop as though nothing had happened and forged an identity that "bought" the business from his previous master. He would travel the city through his drones, and even got himself a vehicle that let him drive around. He hired his skills out as a Shadowrunner and only ever appeared in drone form due to his minuscule stature, but never committed violence, mostly spying and delivering messages; occasionally making deliveries for local gangs.

    Chougou's dream is to be able to have a mechanized body suit that will let him move around like a normal person. He also wants to create an orphanage to take care of those children that he sees on the streets. He has a visceral dislike for people that abuse their positions of power, but also has had to learn to play the long game from his years of captivity. He has an assortment of drones and weapons, as well as a van to transport the crew around. He would like to start coming on missions, but has to have someone willing to carry him if things go sour, he probably weighs about 45 pounds.

    I already mentioned this privately but going to pop it here so we don't forget about/lose it:

    As a bonus for the story, you get the high pain tolerance positive quality at rating 3 (p 74 from the main book) as Chougou is probably used to taking a beating by now.

    I am also giving you 3 free contacts (feel free to come up with whatever names you like for them). The first one is the noodle shop owner who waved through the window (connection 2, loyalty 3), next is a shadowrunner/bike courier that he hired for that first run (connection 2, loyalty 1) and the last one is a prostitute who survived the massacre (connection 1, loyalty 1)

    Going through your equipment and noticed you have full body armor. Can't have that because the availability is 14R and you can't have anything higher than 12 at character creation.

    Also a minor thing, but the build/repair specializations are:
    Armorer
    Aeronautics Mechanic
    Automotive Mechanic
    Cybertechnology
    Industrial Mechanic
    Nautical Mechanic
    (possibly others if you can think of some other thing you want to be able to build/repair)

    Engineering is a knowledge skill, if you want it.

    Ok makes sense. I really just chose it as a precursor to his full body suit (and that he would dress up in to feel rough and tough) so it would be especially fine to go without it since he can't really do anything if he wears it anyway.

    You can pick up other armor if you like. There is plenty of street legal armor that wouldn't particularly make you look like a soldier walking around town. When you pick it from the book, be sure to check the availability. If it is over 12, you can't get it. if it has a R next to it, you need a license to own it (which means security will probably hassle you over it), and if it has an F it is completely illegal to own under any circumstances. If it's 12 or less with no letter next to it, it is a common consumer item. Might take time to pick up in game as it gets closer to 12, but otherwise it is pretty easy to get a hold of. Most armor in the main book falls into the acceptable range as it is essentially clothing with built in armor.

    As for being able to wear it, it is fine so long as you don't throw on too many extra things after your first piece. If it doesn't have a +, then it doesnt stack. If it does, then it starts to slow you down based on your strength.
