    I hadn't even noticed this thread and have just now finished reading it (the parts that I understand at least Laughing). Since there was a bit of an origin story for our irl characters, I was born in Nevada, have lived in Nevada and am currently in Nevada. Funny how some people get things done and go places and others stay put...

    I built Chougou as an intentionally weak physical character that has to use his mental skills to rise above. Eventually I'd like for him to have an exoskeleton, but that is going to be quite a bit of time, nuyen and Karma in the making I believe.

    If possible I'd like to move near any facility that we are preparing for the group to be nearby so that Chougou can go down and work there, with the possibility of having a workshop inside eventually, depending on how much that would cost. Chougou possibly still has an electronics store that he "owns" from the backstory that I wrote for him, and I don't know if that could be incorporated into the building, because I guess he might still do work there for small amounts of cash? I just wrote it in there because it fit his story, but I'm just as happy to say that he sold it to get on with his life.

    Also the asian theme is very appealing to me because I have always been interested in the culture. I especially like the languages and have been trying (unsuccessfully) to learn Mandarin for a while. Chou Gou (丑狗) actually means Ugly Dog in Mandarin. I also do martial arts Raf, mainly from Shaolin style and Taiji teachers. It seems like we found a neat little subgroup of the Shadowrun world. Smile

    I have done a lot of martial arts myself (kenpo, kyokushin, tai kwon do, jiu jitzu, and a tiny bit of krav maga), though not so much these days. While I was in Japan I even competed in a tournament in Tokyo. I got 3rd place in the heavy weight division. Probably would have gotten first if I understood the rules better, but my teacher never actually bothered to explain them to me.

    Yeah. I asked him what the rules were and he was like, "Just hit him and do damage." Didn't mention that certain techniques were banned so I lost points for that.

    So what's the conclusion on this? Are we all initiated now? What do we fill in on our character sheets? What amount of nuyen / karma do we substract?

    oh no. no one is initiated yet. You don't have enough karma for it. You need 5 to start the group and 11 for the actual initiation. By the time you finish the next adventure, you should probably be getting to it. In the mean time feel free to further discuss the details of the initiation group here.

    So shall we save up our karma, or can we spend like 5 and still have enough for initiation by next adventure (assuming we don't royally screw up)?

    Well, you can initiate whenever you have the karma for it (albeit the process takes like a month). So if it's a priority, save up. If not, then you can do it later. The 5 karma for the group should probably be done at the same time to save you having to do multiple rituals to form it.
