SHADOW OPS: Elven Adept

So, after playing Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown a bunch this week with Tim Kirk (of Silverlion Studios), I was inspired to whip-up SHADOW OPS: Covert Ops in the Sixth World. It’s a fan tribute to the Shadowrun franchise, inspired by the gameplay of the recent PC games using a mash-up of COVERT OPS and BareBones Fantasy from DwD Studios. I’m pretty happy with what I threw together between studying for finals, and the initial reactions from the BBF Community on G+ have been stellar. You can download the fan supplement from its page on this site. 

Instead of rambling to you about how I did things (you can download it and read it yourself, chummer) I’ve decided to instead devote time over the next several days to bring you some pre-made characters. This is taking the d00lite system and cranking it up to 11, using a plethora of different options all at once. May be meaty compared to a normal BBF or Covert Ops character, but it sure as hell still feels elegant compared to a typical Shadowrun character sheet. (I say that with love.)

So to start things off, I’m bringing an Elven Adept by the name of Hideaki. He’s a former member of the Scarlet Strike gang, lucky to be alive after failing to take out their leader, Katsuo,  in a bold power play. With ambitions to someday run Katsuo off their turf, Hideaki turned to a life in the shadows with ambitions of restoring his reputation, making powerful connections, and turning Katsuo’s own allies against him.

Hideaki is cold, ambitious, and domineering. He excels at hand-to-hand combat, but can also be quite crafty with a sidearm. A noteable talent is his uncanny talent for fighting in the dark, making him a deadly stalker in the shadows. He’s also quite influential, as has managed to keep some connections with former Scarlet Strikers and various dealers back on his home turf.
