I am intrigued by this proposal. The scheduling would be the biggest hurdle for me as my work often sends me out of town, but I bet I can work around that.

Threw up a poll in the OOC forum of the RP section.

@artguy50

CP2020 is not free and is still sold and licensed material. You can buy it off amazon or drivethrurpg I believe. If you look at the wiki on it you get the basic idea in that you basically choose a class with each giving you a special signature skill (ex. Solo has Combat Sense). There's more to it, but if this works out one of us with the books can probably help you put a character together.

Probably just the CP 2020 main rule book. It's all you really need to make a character. Things like the Chrome books, etc. are more for adding more cool swag or learning about the world of CP2020 (which isn't canon with shifters so it doesn't matter.)

Yes and no. I don't believe there was anything that somehow eliminated blood stains from crime scenes. Other than so much stuff that a good 'clean' sample would be near impossible to attain. That's mostly going through the effort to a. not get in a firefight and b. cover your tracks. As for skinweave which makes you bullet resistant it's in the main book and still allowed, assuming you can come up with a convincing reason to have it. I was more thinking of the various thermoptic camo things which don't exist in Shifters or the various types of military hardware (i.e. missle launchers, rail guns, etc) that the Chrome books like to pimp out but players should not likely be able to buy.

not eliminate blood stains just scrambs the DNA of the blood to make it harder to trackback or impossable depaing on the mod, it was some kind of nanomachines thing in your body that helps with that kind of thing or so the DM told me as he gave us packs of hardware and ogmants to choose from as he "rule lord" it to be badass but still fair

Hey, I'm new to these forums and have only read the reboot, but I absolutely love the world and would love to be part of an RPG. Would this be a good time to join, or should I try on the forums first? I only have real experience with standard tabletop (mostly D&D 3.5, but also Shadowrun, and have basic knowledge of Exalted and BESM); all the forum RPs I've been a part of went kaput rapidly.

Edit~ Though I guess it's rather ill-timed to say anything...
