Daily Punch 10-12-15 Scald spell for Shadowrun 5e

I’m teaching at a college, and in chem class we’re covering specific heat.  Water has the highest specific heat I can think of.  Let’s use that in SR!

Type: P Range: LOS Damage: P
Duration: F rounds Drain: F + 2
Type: P Range: LOS (A) Damage: P
Duration: F rounds Drain: F + 4
You know why the Stuffer Shacks Soupper Bites burn you so hard?  It’s the filling!  A few crazy mages are doing the same to their enemies.  It’s a tougher spell as it mixes water and fire magic at the same time, but it hurts like the dickens!  This spell hits either one target with a ball of super heated water or several targets.  The target(s) are all dealt fire damage as heat with none of that nasty extra fire in the area.  This damage is treated as fire for purposes of resisting and reducing damage.  However, what does happen is the targets are covered in boiling water that sticks on the target doing damage.  At the start of the targets first action each turn on its first initiative pass that turn, after the first the target is delta force – the number of rounds since the spell was cast fire damage again as the boiling water burns the target over time.  A target can avoid the subsequent damage by using a complex action to remove its soaked clothing or by brushing off the water.  If a mage critically cliches while casting this spell, the spell goes off prematurely and coats the mage in the water causing damage as if the spell was cast on the character.


Daily Punch 9-27-15 Masochist positive quality for Shadowrun 5e

I saw Pain is Gain in Data Trails.  Let’s make that happen for the real world!

You’ve met them.  Some people just like to get hit.  Maybe its their viking berserk family history.  Maybe it just wakes up up after a bad soykaf.  Maybe their some freak in the bar who really into getting into fights.  Either way, they come alive when the fists hit their face.  Every initiative pass, once an initiative pass, when a character with this quality is dealt stun or physical damage, their initiative score increases by +2.


Daily Punch 9-3-15 Hopper program for Shadowrun 5e

Bull mentioned a program in Data Trails, but it didn’t make an appearance.  Let’s make it happen here!


Hopper:This program exploits a communication loophole between different grids to give you a superposition in both. You may work on one grid and perform actions on another without any penalties to your dice pool. However, any time your GOD score increases, it increases by 1.5 times as much as several demigods on both grids are working against you.

Daily Punch 9-2-15 Slumming it positive quality for Shadowrun 5e

I’m catching up on my Shadowrun.  Let’s get some positive qualities out there!

Slumming It
Cost: 3 karma per rank (1 to 3 ranks)
When you were in the cradle you mommy told you stories about how the little girl in red was tricked by the wolf looking like granny?  Well you make your avatar look like crap to be a little more like the big bad wolf and little red….except this wolf gets to eat the little one! You purposefully make your matrix avatar look like a crappy standard avatar to lure matrix security, deckers, and spiders into a false sense of security. For every rank you have in this quality, you gain a +1 bonus to your dice pool for all checks that use the firewall attribute of the device you are using.
