Daily Punch 3-20-18 Last Ditch Effort positive Quality for Shadowrun 5e

Watching Complex Action and they did a show about interrupt action.  Let’s put one more idea out there based on that!

 

Last Ditch Effort

Cost: 10 Karma

You always come through in a clutch.  When you take an interrupt action and it reduces your initiative below 0 before you normal action in an initiative pass, you may still take your normal action at your pre-interrupt action initiative.  You may not take any interrupt actions after your initiative has been reduced to zero.  If you’ve already acted in an initiative pass and your initiative is reduced to zero by an interrupt action, you do not get an action in the next pass.

Daily Punch 7-12-17 You Got A History negative quality for Shadowrun 5e

I had a friend who wanted to have a character how had a real bad history like a shadowruner hunter for the Azzies in Shadowrun.  I like the idea, but feel bad rep doesn’t go far enough.  How about something new…

 

You Got a History
Bonus: 6 Karma per level
Some people did things that can’t get better.  Some people blow up people on accident.  Some poison the well and don’t look back.  Well you’re looking back, and you don’t like what you find.  And neither do other people.  Whatever you did, your start play with  3 points of Notoriety (p. 372) per level of this quality.  You can remove this using normal karma rules for buying off a quality as you do more and more good out in the community paying out your debts to society.

Daily Punch 7-4-17 Basic Errors negative quality for Shadowrun 5e

How about some shadowrun fun?

 

Basic Errors
Bonus: 5 Karma
Some people  are good at the hard stuff, but choke when they get simple.  A character with Basic Errors suffers no penalties to clutch actions, but attempting to do an action when unhurried such as driving on easy roads or doing a simple computer search for dinner must attempt an edge check.  If  if the character does not get three successes, then the character fails the simple action resulting in a critical glitch.  How often this occurs is up to the GM, but should not occur more than twice per session.
