    https://forum.questionablequesting.com/threads/irc-mage20-technocrat-game.2255/#post-468285“Good Morning, [Rank 1 Title] [First Name]! The shuttle to your new home will be arriving in 30 minutes. Please dress semi-formally and make your way to Terminal 3C.” The deliberately artificial sounding voice blares into your ears, the advanced sound canceling speakers making sure that only you can hear it.

    Or at least you hope so. That they still haven’t fixed the bug leaving in the “form-letter” variables is worrying. Maybe whatever happened on Tuesday was worse than you were told. Which would be easy as you were told nothing. Infosec is important after all.

    You roll out of the bunk bed, hopefully for the last time, your personal effects are already packed, and the good byes to your fellow trainee’s mostly happened last night. You still didn’t let the prodgedy girl get any beer, She might be smarter then most of the class, but at least it’s legal for you to buy beer.

    Half the bunks around you are already empty. Their former occupants having already left, sent on shuttles much like the one soon to be waiting for you in 3C.

    -----------------

    Do you want to hunt werewolves! Push the boundaries of science! Root out the monsters and mayhem makers that prowle society, feeding on the innocent and guilty alike! Do you care about the world around you? The fate of humanity! The Face of the Future!

    Do you want to see mystic Chantries repurposed into sanctioned Constructs! Alien warships burned into rubble! Traitors to humanity made to pay for their crimes! Liars and Frauds exposed for what they are!

    Actually..

    We already know that you do! That’s why you are here! We have decided that you, yes you, deserve to know more, deserve to be trusted with secrets that would scare even the Enlightened Citizens around you.

    We have chosen you to be part of something greater: The Technocracy.

    --------------------------

    I will be running a game about new members of the Technocracy and the challenges and dilemmas they face as part of their first few missions. Sort of like working for the Corps in Shadow run, your duties will involve both investigation and action.

    I will running a Mage 20 Technocrat game at 6:00 PDT Saturdays on synIRC channel #Technocrat2015. If you are interested reply to this thread, contact me by PM, or talk to nolrai666 or emotionalAsterisk on synIRC. (Those are both me.)

    Character Ideas are welcome, but I would like to finalize the campaign premises and character concepts together.

    Hmm, nine AM on my time.

    I think it's doable, though I may occasionally misses. We'll see.

    Huh... mental computation... That means I'm ahead by 16 hours. It seems I won't be able to join due to conflicting schedules. Perhaps another time then.

    I can join this, but this week and next may be rough. I might be late arriving this week, and next week I'll be gone for the weekend. After that, I should be around on time.

    Anything special about character creation?

    You need to raise your Enlightenment with Freebie points in order to raise your Spheres. Sphere dots cannot be raised higher than your Enlightenment.

    This seems pretty interesting, but the time zone difference might be a bit much for me. That and I can barely understand the system in the core rules, let along the Techno Convention Books.

    Finally finished my character sheet =o=

    Backstory: Found and inducted into the Technocracy proper soon after the Anomaly occurred, Annabell is the physical reminder of a joint experiment to create the perfect Progenitor. The nameless project was headed by two scientists who were known to it's subjects as Mother and Father in addition to other, disturbing but effective, methods of ensuring loyalty among the designer babies it created. Despite the obvious ethical concerns, and indeed because of them, this experiment had been kept a tightly wrapped secret up until the Anomaly claimed half of it entirely.

    By the time a relatively secure method to produce and induce Enlightenment was found the only children remaining were Ann and her sister. Yet, the world outside of their lab continued to move. The Dimensional Anomaly came to pass; the unfortunate sister, Father, and bulk of others involved with the project, were lost when they were transferred to an off world location.

    Ann soon found herself in a new and greater world when her Mother could no longer stand by, a blessing born of the same horrible event that claimed the life that she held most dear.

    She was quickly removed from the woman's guardianship, requested a change in name, and has expressed no desire to reunite as of the present time.

    It can not be said that Annabell is unmarked by her unusual birth. The now adult woman seems to fully embrace and find worth in her assigned purpose to the point of disregarding certain elements of education as unneeded. Despite her cold and robotic personality Annabell acts with fitting bedside manner and with great understanding towards her patients.

    The doctor is assisted in her endeavors by the monkey Companion named Chime, and is currently being deployed to field work to test her skills. Whether this was a command or request made by Annabell personally, she has not said.

    Welcome, my fellow Technocrats!

    As you know, our Amalgam just received new personnel. Specifically, Lilithium, Winged One, and Gideon020. It is therefore necessary to accommodate them in our shopping list! Fortunately, Cassiemouse and Jemnite agree to drop certain purchase on the list. We also ordered older model of Victors! So our current shopping list is:

    SHOPPING LIST TO MEXICO 35/55
    Enlightened Smartphonex6 (Free)
    Alanson Power Armor (Basic)x2 (16)
    Falconi Suitsx1 (4)
    Victor (Old Gen)x12 (6)
    VDASx1 (6)
    NWO ID Cardx3 (3)
    Various sleepertech armored vest, flamethrower, firearms.
    - 10 AK-47 plus Silenced SMGs for Victors that goes with Mieraine and Jackie, and the one that guard Valencia.
    - A Sniper Rifle plus Sidearms for two Victors as Sniper/Spotter pair.
    - .50 Cal Machine Gun and a Silenced SMG for Jackie
    - Plasma Weapon for Mieraine
    - Incendiary Ammos
    - Teflon Ammos

    For our new members, you all have free 20 Background Points for use! Also, if each of you get one dot of Requisiton, we'll gain whooping +25 Background Points! Spend it on Toybox section on Mage20 Book, or Revised Convention Books.

    My suggestion? Get at least NWO ID Card, it's damn useful. Also, you can get as many sleeper tech as you can carry, since our combined Requisition rating is above 3 - just make sure it's returned after mission. Well, unless you requisition bullets, grenade, stuffs like that of course.

    Let's see, 20/3 is 6 and two thirds... I'll go with a Falconi Suit, NWO ID Card, and the Mirrorshades from the NWO convention book, if my fellow new personnel don't mind me being one of the people with 7. Is it possible to get a version of Mirrorshades that's really hard to use for anything but looking cool (or merely acts as an instrument, if you're a reality deviant sympathizer like the oMage writers are)?

    Would a flak jacket worn over a Falconi suit ruin the look?

    Are Technocratic sidearms allowed as part of our free stuff? It's in the same set of tables as the other stuff...

    Well, if I can't get a Biggs X-5 Model R with a silencer and computer targeting, I'll just go for the biggest quiet gun we can conceal in Jared's suit.

    Rubber bullets (and/or tear gas bullets, if we can have 'crat guns for free) would do well if we want to capture people for... adjustment. Or possibly if we want to capture non-people to have them rendered down for parts. I don't know how vulnerable the local non-people are to bashing damage.

    Falconi is 6, NWO is 1, Mirrorshades is 2. If you want Mirrorshades only as instrument, you don't need to requisition since, well, it's normal mirrorshades, only fluffed to act as your instrument I guess.

    Eh, not sure. Do armor stack, Nolrai2? Since Falconi already got armor.

    Since it's bought via resources, I treat it is as sleepertech. But it depends on how ST govern it.

    Sure, I'll note this.
