Myrik Runs the Shadows

86 posts in this topic

This month’s challenge is going to be based on the Shadowrun universe which I have always enjoyed and I just finished reading the first Shadowrun novel that was written back in 1990.  I plan on stealing some ideas @Ryuu1011 used last month to allow for some missed days when life just doesn’t allow me to do what I need/want to do.  The reason for this is; last month’s challenge for me was me just going through the motions and not really getting any enjoyment out of it like I had in the past.  So without further ado here is this month’s challenge. 

Myrik

Human

Street Samurai

HP 400/400

Essence 10/10

Myrik gets some chrome (not really) /Strength and speed equals power

In the Shadows everyone is strong but to get the upper hand runners augment their own strengths with cyberware (Chrome).  The cost of these augments is a weaker connection with your soul; this connection is measured in Essence.   Myrik’s unique physiology allows for his soul to adapt to these augments and regain parts of his essence as long as he maintains a focus using these augments. Myrik regains .12 of his essence for every week he maintains his routine but will lose portions of the regained essence for every missed workout at a rate of .06 per missed workout or additional exercise.

  • Muscle Replacement:  Alphaware cost 2.6
    • Continue my normal workout routine.
    • Normal Exercises (Pull, Push, Core and Legs) on my normal rotation every other day
  • Wired Reflexes: Moderate Alphaware cost 4
    • Add HIIT and Plyometric exercises
    • HIIT twice a week including zero week = 10 days of HIIT exercises
    • Plyometric work twice a week = 10 days of Plyometric work

Myrik avoids the docwagon

Healing in the Shadowrun universe slow or expensive if you rely on docwagon. But for for a runner doing a job a quick patch up to complete the job you will need to have First Aid Kits (ranks 1-6) and Trauma Patches that prevent bleeding out.  Myrik will need these tools at his disposal for running the shadows.

  • Record Nutrition on MFP x7 per week = 32 times
  • Stay within 100200 calories of 2200 plus workout calories x75 per week = 32 times

 

Starting Stats will be added tomorrow morning (19APR17)

Craft First aid kit: +50 hp for each full week of matching goal

Trip: -10HP Bad choice

Bruise:  -25hp Bad Meal

Fall: -100hp bad day

Myrik runs the slums:

The slums are where the SINless live outside of the comforts of Corporate life.  The Slums are not a safe place even for a runner. 

  • Run
    • once a week for at least 30 minute.
  • Darebee’s Running Substitutes
    • 1 exercises from each of the 3 categories x3 sets

 

Out after dark: Failed to run/do alt during the week: -50hp

Caught by grunge gang: Missed run/alt 2 weeks in a row -250hp

Home sweet home: +5hp for each night I get 8 hours of sleep.

Myrik works well with others (sometime):

No runner can do a job by themselves they need a group of people they can trust or at least a few mercs they can pay to trust.

Failed to vet a Merc: -10hp per day missed checking in

I'm pretty sure it will.  I might need to add some more bonus activities like you did to motivate me to do extra stuff around the house.  

 

Also on another note last night was our community group's(Small church Groups) weekly meeting and and did a combined praise and worship with another of the groups.  In between songs people would pray for different things.  One of the girls prayers was that of thanks for helping her forgive her Ex for all the bad things that he had done.  This made me break down and ask the group through sobbing tears to help me forgive my birth dad for abandoning me at 3 years old and again at 19 years old.  I feel this will be the first step in true forgiveness that only Christ can give.

Yesterday's calories.  MFP doesn't account for Garmin's stairs climbed or heart rate activity so my calories will be based on Garmin's app.  With food entered into MFP.

Love the theme and the challenge setup. I think 100 calories is a little tight, given last-minute going to bed activities, but that's just me. As to the forgiveness - good on you for making that step. It's not easy, but it is very good for you, even if you never come in contact with the other person again. (Speaking of which, if you don't mind my asking, how did the visit go?)

The visit went very good.  Much better than expected to be honest.  I think them staying at a hotel made it easier.  It did feel as though the visit was only for the girls because they didn't hangout at all after the girls went to bed, that part stung a little but its understandable.

Forgiveness is hard and starting the process is even harder. Good for you.

I decided that on days like that I will do what my body tells me.  If i'm full and feel good I'm not going to force myself to eat, if i still feel hungry I'll eat.

Hmmm Might have to find a better place to host it.  Figured a public folder on google photos would work....  Does anyone know how to post a picture from instagram?

From a computer, I go to my instagram profile and click on the picture. It will bring up the picture and you can copy the URL. Once you have that just post the URL here.

I've always had to grab the URL directly from the URL bar. If you try right clicking and copying Image URL it won't work. Also I think you need to have a public profile.

Do you use the insert other media button or just paste it into the post directly?
