  1. I love what the filters changed the profanities to. "Son of a woof" is my new favorite quote.
  2. Deep in VR, the icon of the hacker sent to assist Mod screamed and vanished. He stopped, and just as he realized what happened a large wound appeared on his icon's leg. "Crap." He thinks, clenching his jaw in pain. He switches back to AR and looks around the room where he's jacked in. A large explosion had torn the room to shreds, and shrapnel had severed his femoral artery. Blood sprayed from the injury with every heart beat. Only a couple of minutes before he bled out. He activated his earpiece. "Imouto, can you hear me?" He huffed through gritted teeth. High above Essen, atop Lofwyr's b
  3. Thanks guys! I'm super excited! They were mostly impressed with my ability to keep all of the lore straight, even going as far back as Earthdawn. For that reason alone, my story is going to take a while to finish. It's one of the few things I'm incredibly anal about. I won't even continue to game with a group that can't/won't keep true to lore. Lol
  4. The big dogs at Shadowrun like my story! They told me to let them know when I'm done with my rough draft, and they'll give me the email to their editor! I'm smiling so hard my cheeks hurt! AHHHH!!! OMGOMGOMG!!! I can't believe this!
  5. Fifty innocent people dead. Fifty two wounded. My heart goes out to them and their families.
  6. Here's descriptions of all the characters I made for the story. Gregor (Greg) MacLellan - Age: 48 Race: Troll Birthplace: Aberdeen City, Scotland Archetype: Gunner Personality: Gruff and firm, but also fair and kind. Very protective of his street adopted daughter, Maisie. Other info: Kicked out of home after goblinizing into a Troll at age 13. Moved to Washington, UCAS where he was raised by Mothers of Metahumans. Former UCAS Marine. Lost his right arm protecting a high-ranking UCAS polititian, and was gifted a cybernetic replacement after his honorable discharge. Turned to Shadowru
  7. Mary Sue is not found in her power level, but in her excessive importance. A Damsel in Distress can be a Mary Sue, if everyone thinks she is the most important thing in the world. Your character is throwing the world into chaos just from existing, not from anything she's done. The angst you are describing for your character ('oh, what a tragedy that I will join the immortals while these I love are to be lost to dust and ashes, what a cruelty is the Sixth World' sort of thing) is a classic Mary Sue kind of thing. Just by way of example of the kind of problems that you can have diving

  9. Infrequently Vile You are infrequently vile – you mostly put others before yourself, though you may find occasions in which your dark side shines.
  10. I took great care to not Mary Sue the heck out of Maisie. She's not any more powerful than any other magician her age, she doesn't have a sudden flash of god-like power at just the right moment. Literally the only advantage being dragon-blooded gives her is being immune to age, disease, poisons, and pathogens, and even that is a very bittersweet perk given that she'll watch every member of the only family she's ever known wither and die, and she'll suffer from some pretty major PTSD for the foreseeable future. She has a LOT of trouble coping with everything. She never loses her heart of gold,
  11. I cannot support the above statement enough. I first read this and have been wracking my brain in how to say something constructive and helpful that doesn't come across as knocking your idea down. I don't want to do that. When you are writing something like this set in a very well known setting, using big names as main parts of your plot (instead of cameos) can be detrimental. Writing them without knowing the proper "voice" will be especially difficult. Also, I can tell you now, having a half-dragon/half-elf "look at meeeee" type of character is, as stated, very Mary Sueish and wil
  12. I'll admit that that Maisie walks the border between ok and mary sue, but has so far managed to pass the litmus test. All of the currently living immortal elves are descendants of elves who mated with dragons back during the first and second worlds, so it used to be a lot more common. It only became taboo after the immortal elves rebelled against the dragons. Maisie's existence also shows that magic levels in the world are getting close to their peak. That's why some want her dead, and other know that dragons and immortal elves are the only ones who can go toe-to-toe with the Horrors and w
  13. I have donated heavily to TARC and Children's Mercy Hospitals in the past, and have it in my while that a certain percentage of my life insurance money will be donated to them upon my death. I've also volunteered with Friends of Local Foods, and 1,000 New Gardens since moving to Bozeman a few years ago, and now that I'm relocating to Tucson, I'm looking at volunteering at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona and the Trak Ranch.
  14. It's actually not as much as it sounds. There's quite a bit of backstory that is explained in dialogue, but the story mainly focuses on Maisie coming to terms with what she is and coping with the death of her street adopted dad (who's death kickstarts the plot) at the very formative and vulnerable age of 17, her, her team, and several of the big dogs of the SR universe helping Lofwyr get S-K back and stop Alamais once and for all. This is a novel-length story, so I can actually fit in quite a bit. The hardest part for me so far is keeping true to the lore, while also creating new lore that doe
  15. Oh gods, someone showed up with a puppy. -watches everyone melt into goo at the sight of such adorable floofiness- Welp, it was nice knowing you guys.
