    Sato's gear buying assistance

    Post by winkingchef on Fri Aug 10, 2018 12:19 pm

    Sato has the hook up for all your new gear!  
    He will help dues-paying members of the community center with no broker fee (time permitting).
    Let him know what you want in this thread.
    Cash up front is greatly preferred (family interest rates are NOT great)

    What can Sato do for you?

    • Get regular gear fast - he is great at finding items using negotiation (14 dice+)
    • Get restricted (availability R) gear for 10% off through his "family discount" ((Made Man)) (probably a "within reason" thing and gear may be "lightly used" and the GM may flavor not exactly what you ordered)
    • Fence any gear we "find" for 30% of true value ((also Made Man))

    He can only apply his stuff to purchases outside of chargen. Chargen purchases have different rules than in game ones. Remember that all your money from chargen goes away except for up to 5,000 of it, so do all your chargen purchases now. Once we move on from here, your chargen changes are locked in. (the money you earned from this run can't be used to make chargen purchases, fyi)

    The only thing I might need is to replace reagents I've used, and maybe pick up the odd opportunistic focus here or there.

    They are easy enough to purchase. If you want to harvest them, you can do that too with a roll. It's a Alchemy + Magic [Mental] test with 1 reagent per 4 hits unless you can find a place that is particularly rich in reagents to harvest.

    I have 8 left of the 20 I started with.  It will only cost me 336 to bring my stockpile up to 50, in case shitz getz Realz.

    If he can swing a deal, great... but its completely legal and more or less readily available stuff.  Volume is the only issue, and I'm sure there are some perfectly reputable geomantic talismongers that are as close to mass producing the stuff as you can get.

    The lodge materials are a bit more pricey, and I have not looked into what their availability really is.  I have materials for a rating 1 already, and we need at least a rating 6 for the bonding ritual.

    The real question is can his connections swing a deal on real estate. Smile  As I plan to live there, I don't mind tossing in the 2k for my lifestyle per month on top of the member dues.  Home is where the Lodge is, don't ya know.

    336? Where'd you get that number from? 1 reagent = 20 nuyen. As for volume that is not too much of a big deal. The more you order, the longer it will take to get, but only if you start ordering crazy amounts at a time. The reagents are specific to whatever tradition you are, so talismongers have reagents for various traditions, but only around 50-100 units for any specific tradition in stock. Order more than that and you will have to wait on shipments to come in.

    Lodge materials take longer to get, particularly for higher forces. Shops usually only stock for 1-2 force and need to prepare orders for higher force (which takes days at least).

    As for real estate, none of your contacts are really useful to that end. But there are agents everywhere to help with that sort of thing. If some of you want to tack on your full lifestyles on top of the medium lifestyle that everyone is paying for, we could get you a nicer place than paying for them separately.

    Special work places cost 1,000 a month and increase the skill limit for working in them by 2. You can also install a shop or facility in said work space for a one time cost of 5,000 or 50,000 respectively. This allows you to do more complex jobs and they both come stocked with parts so you don't have to pay for them.

    50 (total I want)- 8 (Total currently in my possession)= 42.  42*20=840, because I'm an idiot and only multiplied by 8 last time for reasons only known to my dissolving anatomy.

    Not to dissuade anyone from throwing in whole hog on the fortress of 5ECC... but it does come with the downside of painting a target on your living space.

    Putting aside the random neighborhood gang activity, the occasional beef with organized crime when we start stepping on their business by curbing drug use and not paying protection money, and whatever other incidental challenges just the business itself will encounter, you also have to consider this will be a public façade for a shadowrunning group.  Any enemies we make will know right where to find us, angry corps may try and take our properties, etc...

    This is true. That's why people have safehouses and extra lifestyles.

    Exactly.  It makes sense for me, I was already on the street and just barely moved into a Coffin.  The box we sealed the Jianshi in is fancier than my place and only possible because I am *very* friendly with Tatsuo, so moving into a back office or something on a larger industrial property is likely a step up.  That's on top of the fact that the place will serve as a hermetic lodge.

    Sato is willing to chip in to the CC out of team spirit, but he's got other digs, so he doesn't need a bedroom. Also this waifu thing is a bit creepy for him, but he's too polite to talk about it.

    Even better... you mentioned you had issues with Spirits of Man.   That's how she started.  She's evolving. Smile

    Spirits of Man love me.

    OK, I have a shopping list and want to roll for availability
    Also, did his Berwick Suit get fixed up (and the other items he rolled on like contacts)?

    Should we standardize on where to roll for new gear and track purchases?
    I'd suggest doing it in the character thread - e.g. Sato's chargen thread

    Yeah, probably easiest to do purchases in your individual character threads
