Oh man, this is seriously so cool.  It's like everyone is returning to their origins and most successful challenges for one massively coordinated Ranger Redux this time around!

Nailed it.  I especially love the fact that you applied the appropriate Shadowrun geography to my real-world location.  ;)

I feel this way, too.  This is going to be a challenge of EPIC RANGERYNESS!

THIS IS AMAZING! So excited to be one of your runners, I love the avatar you chose for me too. I've never looked so cool. B) 

Glad you like it, Charlie!

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 

I'm not trying to avoid gluten, just complex carbs (bread, pasta etc) so I'm fine with hot/cold malt instead of caffeine. Thoughtful of you to point it out however, I appreciate it.

I love Shadowrun, and I'm definitely following!  

Great! Since you're aware of the setting, you might want to help me with your respective character? I'm thinking an Infiltration Specialist, kinda like Charlie Quinn above. Probably elf or human. It's supposed to mirror your actual self, so with all the handstands and parkour I think it makes sense. Also, people, I have the same issue with some of you as well. Keep that in mind and feel free to come up with suggestions

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

Rooibos is "tea" in the same sense that chamomile or other herbal brews are "tea". It comes from the redbush plant in South Africa, not a tea plant per se, but closely resembles tea and is naturally caffeine free.

Nailed it yourself, because in planning this one, I did indeed go back to my most successful challenges of the past: Beast, Krieg and Shadowrun/FF7. Collective Ranger Subconscious is to blame for the bigger image across the Guild. As for your real-world location, let me point you to the definition of a Fixer on the first post of this thread. I know a lot of that stuff about my runners by now ;)

Big fan of the setting in general, love the new computer games and may have managed to pick up a slew of the novels at various books sales over the last couple of years.

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?

Yeah, feels like a lifetime ago. At the time I was super-ready, now not that much BUT I SHALL CONQUER IT NEVERTHELESS!

I spike most of my teas with a bit of honey. Maybe that'll do the trick for you.

[Inferno] Did you guys happen to notice the news from Vegas today? 7 Casinos went bankrupt overnight. Smells fishy if you ask me.

[Cyb3R] Big news. This whole place went dead after the second Matrix crash. I'm surprised there were still any casinos left running.

[Inferno] Which proves my point. How were they still operational? And why would anyone bother with a dead industry?

[Chip] Vegas is Ute Nation's main tourist hub and its main source of income. Anyone wanting to strike a blow against them could benefit.

[Inferno] Or anyone wanting to spark anti-Anglo sentiments. The Plainsmen are notorious for that. It's their main source of tension with their California mountain relatives. I hear Ares is maneuvering into the market.

[ManOfManyNames] There is no market in Ute because there is no money. Check your facts.

Parkour + martial arts would make a physical adept a good choice, too.  Unless you hate mages. ;)   I'd definitely see myself as more of an infiltration or recon type and less a direct front-lines combat type.  And elf is a good choice.

I'd never heard of Shadowrun before.  So cool that it involves Ute Nation.  So it's like I'm in the middle of the action watching!  Definitely need to check it out further.

Interesting. I don't seem to remember where you reside. I also couldn't accurately portray your Runner alter ego, much like with Nymeria, so any help there would be appreciated.

It surprises me how easy I slipped back into healthy eating habits. Sure, I get the occasional headache or low energy due to the sudden cut of sugar and complex carbs, but I'm not that hungry during the day and it's rather easy resisting the forbidden stuff. So far, at least. Shouldn't let it get to my head, the challenge hasn't even started yet and when I'm struck with exhaustion and fading willpower later on, that's when it will really count.

 

In other news, SRLF(TM) took me to watch Batman v Superman yesterday. Not as bad as I expected it to be and really liked the portrayal of Wonder Woman (looking at you, @Terra) especially in juxtaposition with the annoyingly archetypical damsel in distress that is Lois Lane.

 

Now, let me fire up that Fixer Mainframe...

I had plans to incorporate a system of people preferring to work with others (kinda like in the Jagged Alliance series) but it wasn't exactly clicking so I'm saving it for flavor in the mission reports I get. Trying to convince myself to take it easy with a working system and add things as I go, instead of throwing everything in the mix at once.

I figured "Timelady Siren" probably translates to a mage or shaman. Shaarawy got to be a shaman of the cat totem (because Assassins and cat gifs) but you got the image with the dark feline on your shoulder :D

Ack! Your challenge is just so cool!! Can't wait to see how all of this plays out! :) 

So far, pretty good. I'm supposed to do 1 mission per week and I'm already on the third. Considering I earn money both from workouts and completing missions, it might be a bit of an overkill. I'll see how it works out, if the income flow is too much, I'll probably limit my share to give me motivation to hit the gym. Doing a lot of missions means a lot of Street Cred too, but losing it is way too easy. Not that I plan to, but I don't want a very high SC to work as an excuse for me not sticking to nutrition limitations.

I live in the midst of Ute Nation, Salt Lake City, which is apparently a Mormon-controlled city-state in Shadowrun.  Not so far from reality, ha!  I would score higher on social, tech, perhaps magic.  In more general gaming terms, I'm more a sneaky or range DPS player than a get-in-and-bash-their-head/melee player.  I'm going to have to check out more about Shadowrun.  I'm actually really enjoying just reading the wiki.
