Get hype everybody! There's another VR Event on the way! High stakes action and danger with none of the permanent damage or trauma! Woohoo!

As you can guess from the title, this ICC Event will be a Cyberpunk Heist game. We will run three different single day games, each with a small number of characters to get that strike team feel.

The Event will run February 19, 20, and 21 (the weekend after Valentine's Day), starting at noon PST and ending definitively at 9:00pm PST.

Sign up a character by posting a link to their character sheet and noting which days you'll be available. We will post up a bracket for each day to let you know which session your character will be joining.

Another post will follow giving you the details of what your character can expect from the virtual setting for the event.

Stay frosty, chummers.

For this VR Event, you'll be members of a Runner Crew lovingly called Mac's Plumbing Services. The plumbing operation is a very shoddy front for your real work. In a word, you're Troubleshooters: if someone has trouble, you shoot it.

All members of your crew are decently familiar with firearms and hand to hand combat. You're outclassed by the professional soldiers of fortune in those areas, but gang bangers and street toughs are no match for you.

Beyond that, you have free reign to pick a specialty for your character: hacker, driver, weapons specialist, demolitionist, etc. A good idea is to not have a dedicated role in mind when you sign up, that way you and your crew can decide who does what in your given scenario. There is no magic in this VR setting, but if your character has inhuman features (like cat ears), that can be explained by cyberware or genetic modification.

Your character will roughly be the age they are when they enter the game: no aging up or down significantly. This game is rated 16+, so no characters under that age going in.

The next post will give you the details of the job.

With everything else settled, it's time to get into what the VR Event will actually entail. I'll try to be as thorough as possible, but if you have any questions about what will be going on, don't hesitate to hit me u

The Meratech Megacorp, leader in gene editing technology and designer babies has something cooking under the hood in their labs. Nobody knows exactly what it is, but a lot of people would pay a lot of money for it.

That's where you come in. Hired by the enigmatic Grandmaster, a hacker whose calling card is a classical Chess Knight, your job is to get in to Meratech's R&D department, get whatever it is they're working on, and get out. The plan is to sell the tech to the highest bidder, maybe even ransoming it back to Meratech itself.

But it won't be easy. With state of the art automated security and the Delta Chi Paramilitary Company on their payroll, you lowlifes have got one hell of a fight on your hands. But hey, that's what you signed up for, innit?

All Virtual Reality Events technically take place on the Starlight Observation Space Station. However they effectively work similarly to being transported to another dimension, with the added effect of your character termporarily becoming a "new person."

Local grumpy boy Bran Owens will join as a grumpy knuckle buster. He's already pretty fitting for the setting!

I'm best available for Saturday, but I can do Friday if too many people are on Saturday.
