The Fixer Chronicles, Ch. 1

Recommended Posts

 

The Holy Grail: I’m running my first ever Spartan and second ever OCR on April 23rd with @Slates in Italy.

 

The concept: I have created a complicated set of rules that plays out much like a manager game. It is set in the Shadowrun world and due to its nature, it makes more sense to portray a Fixer rather than the runners themselves.

[Fixer: A Shadowrun term for an intermediate between the shadows and other parts of the society. Most Mr. Johnsons, regardless of whom they represent, will contact a fixer to set up a meet with shadowrunners.Fixers often know many powerful secrets, like the real identities of Mr. Johnsons, the runners, and such. However, they will not easily part with this information, as secrecy (plausible deniability) is part of the services they provide.]

 

Nutrition goal: No processed sugar, grains or dairy (with the exception of light yoghurt). Also no caffeine, as I've been converted to rooibos/redbush tea, green tea and a malt product that substitutes beautifully for instant coffee when I get the cravings.

 

Workout goal: It's there, but non-specific and not tracked. I'll carry on with my usual crossfit workouts and some custom stuff to improve weak points in my OCR game.

 

Summary: I have created runner characters for several members of the NF Rebellion. Every Monday, I get a new mission with certain parameters and a deadline for Sunday. Working out earns me money, which is spent to recruit runners for a mission. Once the recruited team’s attributes fulfill the mission parameters, it is successfully carried out and I'm allowed to take up another if I want to, with the deadline still being Sunday. Completion earns me part of the monetary reward and (usually) +1 Street Credit/Reputation. Mission failure and every Nutrition violation cost me 1 Street Credit. Runners also earn part of the reward, as well as 1 XP and 1 Heat. Obviously, XP is used to raise their Attributes but takes them out of action for a while. A high Heat score prevents them from undertaking certain missions, as they need to lay low for a while.

 

It will all make more sense once you see it in action!

Your challenge looks really interesting!!! I am going to follow, and TRY to keep up lol Oh, as for malt, don't forget that malt is a grain, and if you are trying to avoid gluten, malt is gluten. I only say this because I can't have gluten and malt is in friggin' everything!!! lol

Dude this is the COOLEST thing ever!!!  Totally in to watch it play out!

 

OH HOLY CRAP I remember when you and Slates signed up for that OCR, wow that was last year, and now it's here!  GOSH SO COOL.

 

I really want to like rooibos tea but something about the flavor always turns me off.  Maybe I haven't found the right one for me?

This is amazing!! Love the character sheets, looks like you really put some time and thought into this :)

 

I'm really confused about this conversation though:

Roibos IS tea, isn't it!? It's the only tea I actually really like (except for some fruit teas)
