BodaciousNia: that should now be a quote.. Special K lol
Alephred: Is ketamine something you 'eat'?
ghost_user_1984: No
someusername5: hi beej
ghost_user_1984: Stuff is nasty
BodaciousNia: ooooh what kind of tea?
heckle_hide: i need to see that kind of special k commercial
JonnyGlitch: I mean, technically you can eat anything you can fit in your mouth
ArchmageBlackstone: With all the cybernetic enhancements they have, do you think drugs would have a stronger effect because there is less organic mass?
FITorion: drink
MistahFixIt: Such Decadence!
ANeMzero: Show eachother butt tattoos
ghost_user_1984: Archmage they cover that in 5th ed
RealGamerCow: We GOSSIP
heckle_hide: ALL the etiquette
Juliamon: Too Much Etiquette
BodaciousNia: Security imo
ANeMzero: Have you used your butt tattoos either?
RealGamerCow: lrrBEEJ
Rioxcon: Security seems more personal to him
Alephred: What does Ms. Manners recommend?
ghost_user_1984: Security sets up for more stuff down the road with that character IIRC
heckle_hide: hobnob
RealGamerCow: shoot, I missed the end of the convention mission last night.
mtvcdm: Is there a king of the Kong?
BodaciousNia: makes me think of the way movies refer to old Vietnam war movies
mtvcdm: New Yorkers refer to their town as 'the city'.
Alephred: I have relatives in both Winnipeg and HK. I have never heard anyone refer to them as 'The Peg' or 'The Kong' :D
BlackIsis: @mtvcdm Cyber-Steve Wiebe
BodaciousNia: face and honor
JonnyGlitch: but I already have a face
SydPreviouslyHeadache: aww shoot i'm late. Hi Beej hi chat
BlackIsis: "Face" is also a nickname for a frontman/social manipulator in Shadowrun.
heckle_hide: It sound like something that sound cool in writing more than in the IRL. Nickname are for efficiency more than not
TheMoatman: Do people call trips to Winnipeg "pegging"?
heckle_hide: HA^
mtvcdm: How do people from The Pas refer to it?
ANeMzero: I feel like "The Kong" might be a Shadowrun Universe type thing
Scy_Anide: I just figured it was future-slang
BodaciousNia: I think it was more a reference to the city being a battlefield
TheMoatman: Wait I thought HK was separate from Guangdong
BodaciousNia: IRL? yes.. in game.. *shrugs*
JonnyGlitch: a lot has changed in the SR universe... look at Australia
Alephred: I would love if we could start referring to to the Philipines as 'The Peen's' though. :D
RealGamerCow: He's got like a 0.10 Essence
ArchmageBlackstone: How has Australia changed in the SR universe?
JonnyGlitch: 0.1 is not 0
JonnyGlitch: @ArchmageBlackstone as far as I recall, "functionally uninhabitable"
Alephred: There were rules for negative essence cyber-zombies in 3rd edition, I believe.
ArchmageBlackstone: So how has it changed?
ArchmageBlackstone: *buh dum tish*
BodaciousNia: Beej, why no dermal plating?
JonnyGlitch: massive mana storms and fluxes makes it very gangerous
JonnyGlitch: dangerous
JonnyGlitch: I could be wrong though
BlackIsis: I think there's still people living on the coasts, but the Outback is full of manastorms and other badness, yeah.
BlackIsis: Uluru is a giant power site too, I'm pretty sure.
JonnyGlitch: @BlackIsis oh, so no change then
BlackIsis: Pretty much. And bigger spiders.
ArchmageBlackstone: Spiders large enough to ride to war.
JonnyGlitch: Well I remember from The Secrets of Power series, Spider Totem tried to escape from imprisonment in Uluru
RealGamerCow: That's like 1500 pounds?
Alephred: I guess he does indeed lift, bro.
BlackIsis: @RealGamerCow Yeah.
ArchmageBlackstone: I need to read more Shadowrun fiction. Love the setting, can't stand the system density.
Erudite_Cynic: welp he can punch a hole through you I imagine
JonnyGlitch: Spider is apparently not an "earthly totem" as in she's very alien and.... not safe to have around
BlackIsis: Yeah, Spider is an insect totem...bad news.
BlackIsis: As anyone who has played Shadowrun Returns knows.
ArchmageBlackstone: Poor, poor Chicago.
JonnyGlitch: buuut arachnids arrrn't insects...
Nicarrow: HI all
BlindProphet32: I remember spider not being that bad in the tabletop honestly
MadAran87: I want to live in this world >_>
BlackIsis: Spider is one of the weird ones like Mantis I think.
JonnyGlitch: @BlackIsis it's been many many years for me so I've forgotten a lot

FITorion: Drink
JonnyGlitch: Kilumiunati confirmed?

ArchmageBlackstone: Did Beej do the 'Fix the Qi' side mission in the first run into Kowloon?
Earthenone: yes
ArchmageBlackstone: Did it raise massive red flags when he did it?
e_bloc: this is a 100% speedrun
Juliamon: !backseat
LRRbot: Please refrain from backseat gaming unless the streamer asks for help. The streamer wants to play the game the way they want. Feel free to discuss tactics in chat or with the mods.
incredulouspasserby: keep forgetting that. 10-4
JonnyGlitch: is there an all Convo's all Sidequest's speedrun category?
JonnyGlitch: why did i put 's in that
Earthenone: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
Juliamon: We try not to ban, but don't push your luck.
JonnyGlitch: ====> lrrSACK
Alephred: What does 'Rilaxin' do?
e_bloc: luckily, I've never played this game, so I can't spoil anything
ArchmageBlackstone: I was inspired to finally get it watching Beej play - I'm torn between avoiding spoilers and watching his runs.
Alephred: He is the eldest, and also smart to boot.
Alephred: Also, please disregard the turret emplacement behind me.
ArchmageBlackstone: 75% off.
MadAran87: They were a few minutes ago :D
BlackIsis: I think they are on sale until Monday morning
gualdhar: they're still on sale on steam, this is $5
erloas: steam sale lasts until the 9th I believe
ArchmageBlackstone: It reminds me a little of Icewind Dale.
Eyclonus: Is the net more involved in Hong Kong compared to the first?
JonnyGlitch: "tactical isomeric turn based" is pretty much covered by "xcom-like"
Alephred: Cam should do a max Charisma X-Com run.
Molladia: Good morning Beej and chat. Do the shadow run games feed into each other? Can you transfer character?
ArchmageBlackstone: Watching Cam play X-Com IS a Max Charisma run.
PixelSavage: such guns. much wow.
erloas: old school RPG, what you call that depends on when you came into the genre
JonnyGlitch: apparently MTG Arena has uninstalled itself from my PC?
erloas: I see it more as Fallout, being in HS when 1&2 came out
Earthenone: 6 armor con swag

BlackIsis: @Molladia No, they are separate
ArchmageBlackstone: Oof, Fallout 1 and 2. I'll play through that some day. I was in the Baldur's Gate era.
e_bloc: you buy the actual plate armor
BodaciousNia: what.. you didn't want a full deck installed in your head?
Alephred: Spider Shen, Spider Shen, does whatever a smuggler does.
SmashTCG: your con armor has +2 Charisma
ArchmageBlackstone: Beej: "I'm going for a Max Charisma run so I can talk my way out of every problem. Also Beej: Buys Armour 6.
JonnyGlitch: wait, Baludur's gate came out in 1998, Fallout in 1997 it;s the same era!
Juliamon: Look, you don't know when someone's gonna force you into a fight.
ArchmageBlackstone: Baldur's Gate is only a year younger than Fallout 1?!
JonnyGlitch: I DID play BG first though
JonnyGlitch: older*
ArchmageBlackstone: Man, it must be my nostalgia goggles - I always remember Baldur's Gate being really well polished compared to Fallout.
JonnyGlitch: it was
erloas: @JonnyGlitch yeah, just depends which one(s) you played, a lot of games with that general design at that point
Virallurk: hey Beej!
JonnyGlitch: BG took up 6CDs, Fallout took up 1
JonnyGlitch: well, 6 with the expansion
incredulouspasserby: shiny
BlackIsis: Who doesn't!
someusername5: I believe that sword is on fire
BodaciousNia: you could say he had Killer Deals :P
ChiefEngineerMichael: @LoadingReadyRun Hey Beej, the little arrow in the lower right corner is filled. Doesn't that mean you have upgrades for your crewmates?
JonnyGlitch: they were also by different devs on different engines, the BG one was a lot more robust but there was also "more" in regards to spell / abilites etc
JonnyGlitch: "porc"
Irishlawyer: Hey Beej, big fan, also love Shadowrun, first stream of yours I'm catching.
BlackIsis: Fra-gee-lay...
MistahFixIt: Teehee. Johnsons.
niccus: dr-drink?
JonnyGlitch: shadownannies is awesome
geskra: @Irishlawyer i just beat returns, am in the middle of dragonfall, im considering HK cause they're so good :x
MaladyDark: important job
Alephred: @geskra Get it now, it's super cheap.
BlackIsis: @geskra I think HK is almost as good as Dragonfall.
JonnyGlitch: exotic is always enticing
Irishlawyer: I was also a Scout, big agree, showing guns to kids is important. Safety is important.
BlackIsis: That's why you always leave a note!
toxic_citizen: as an eagle scout i totally agree that the gun parts of scouts were very important for understanding what a gun is and what is meant to be used for
Rioxcon: Knowing is good, ignorance is dangerous.
e_bloc: same
Juliamon: Yeah.
KingoftheWest7: SUP BEEJ!!!
Irishlawyer: Same Beej
RealGamerCow: same
Molladia: Was/is there supposed to be a pax east vlog after the Beej Graham train ride?
Juliamon: I've learned how to use a BB pistol because I don't feel comfortable touching a "real" gun but still want to understand the basic function and to practice proper discipline.
Mark_D_Stroyer: I mean, I'm a typical example but I'm Texan. So, guns are a thing but they're not demonic
MaladyDark: here is Aus, there is little access to guns. a few years ago the conservative party in sydney said they wanted marksmanship taught in highschools. the farmers party pushed back, saying city kids didn't need it and farm kids already had the opputunity to learn
Mark_D_Stroyer: *I'm ~not~ a typical example. Ahem. Thanks brain.
ArchmageBlackstone: I still think that, whatever else he did, John Howard did the right thing with the buyback.
CommanderPulsar: As you know, Beej... there's a large community of Philipinos in the shadows.
Alephred: Or as is known The Kong, 'The Peens'.

Juliamon: That's a !sir response I think
ArchmageBlackstone: Is that a fishing boat? Because it looked a little like a garbage barge.
MaladyDark: the fact gun crime makes national news lets me know they aren't common. I liek that. I know there are guns around, but I a regular person ith no criminal links, have no general worry of getting shot.
MaladyDark: woah. his boss is a jerk
CrookedPenguin: A garbarge if you will

Juliamon: Matthew, honey...
Scy_Anide: Ah, I remember this trio. I love this trio.
erloas: for whatever reason Crafty isn't coming up with new stuff with me for the last couple missions, I'm at essentially the same point as Beej
BodaciousNia: do different outfits really matter other than appearance?
BlackIsis: It's all about styyyle.
someusername5: equip it and sell the old one?
Juliamon: In this kind of world, do you really want people being able to look at you and know you're a shaman?
erloas: in the second game at least, at some point they include stat/skill boosts as well as armor
MaladyDark: oooh no.
notsomuchsuccess: Riggers are the best.
mtvcdm: Doomsday device, you say?
BodaciousNia: geee.. would you like a laser rifle?.. hmmmm

JonnyGlitch: totally gobbet
erloas: your teammates do post on BBS, they use their names though
BodaciousNia: I think the cat suit would be better
ArchmageBlackstone: Maybe it's Gobbet's ratty friends?
Alephred: Dinuguan is a Phillipino stew.
MaladyDark: hey, we wanted to be firend with that orc from manila after she mentioned food too.
Rioxcon: They make digital escrow seem so easy.
notsomuchsuccess: They need to calibrate the ship's sensors.
MaladyDark: there is a philipino supermarket near me, but no resteruants, and I have never tried cooking it myslef
MaladyDark: well thats a lie
SmashTCG: when i heard the phrase Corprate level minmd sculping, i imagined Jace in a Suit and it botherd me
MaladyDark: you better find who offed Mr.Whiskers
notsomuchsuccess: The Brad Pitt of Shadowrun. Always eating.
BodaciousNia: makes me think that she just re installed her PTSD
Alephred: Satistically, movies in which Brad Pitt eats make more money.
MaladyDark: shiny. what was he a crow?
Eyclonus: A Rat Shaman hired to steal a shiny object....
theonlyangelx: soft

Eyclonus: @theonlyangelx It is, the Saudis have learnt that you can dispel "No" by adding more zeroes on a cheque
MaladyDark: tsui does make it out of this story I'm guessing
Eyclonus: I'm surprised at the lack of Trans in shadowrun
asddsa28: i use the thing
Eyclonus: or is transexuality boring when you can be trans-species
JonnyGlitch: no option to say "I have no idea"? boo
BodaciousNia: 3 for me..
theonlyangelx: there's lots of trans in SR.... if you play with me!
incredulouspasserby: Lol same angel. I can count on one hand the number of straight characters my friends have run.
asddsa28: i still use it for the lols
notsomuchsuccess: I think I'd go for Egret.
incredulouspasserby: To be clear, the Johnson only ever referred to it as the Shiny Object, not Tsui
Eyclonus: Beej drums well
MaladyDark: reading an old core book, there was a section about humans who try to become elves. no real mention of transgender or genderfuids.
Eyclonus: @MaladyDark thats the least fictional part of Shadowrun
theonlyangelx: elf poseurs continued all the way up, iirc
theonlyangelx: also: orc poseur here :P
asddsa28: yessss
someusername5: @eyclonus a dev posted on a thread on steam forums that spider shen is trans -- but I agree it doesn't show up much in the game
notsomuchsuccess: Tsui could smell what the rock was cooking.
theonlyangelx: theyre far-beings, btw :P
theonlyangelx: not relevant to this story
MaladyDark: I always figure some of the people you meet could be trans... but it doesn't need to be mentioned if the orc lady you meet wan't always a woman, she is one now. I also imagine in a world with better surgeries and so on, people would "pass" more
MaladyDark: I do understand that means the game lacks representation. the line between not calling it out and making it invible
incredulouspasserby: Under normal circumstances, I'd agree with you. BUt.....I honestly wouldn't trust the current Shadowrun writing team to deal with that subject well.
incredulouspasserby: I'll trust the Storytellers.
Eyclonus: @incredulouspasserby yes, it requires... tact and talent
theonlyangelx: @incredulouspasserby yes
theonlyangelx: ohhusband!!!!!
theonlyangelx: :3
theonlyangelx: yeah! more Racter talk :3
incredulouspasserby: Well, you're gonna be here a while. Imma get a snack :P
theonlyangelx: and miss husband time? never!
asddsa28: dam that is amzing
Mark_D_Stroyer: Casually.
MaladyDark: this is not going grey goo, nope.
MaladyDark: the noodle machine
asddsa28: o noo
theonlyangelx: i love
SmashTCG: Unless they dont
theonlyangelx: this man :3
Alephred: Well, that question was a bit of a non sequiteur
theonlyangelx: my boi!
asddsa28: that seems like a bad idea
theonlyangelx: but im... love him :3
theonlyangelx: now.... kiss!!!
SmashTCG: I feel like Nicol bolas would fit into Shadow run universe with Ease
Alephred: Koschei is a name shared with a Slavic myth, Koschei The Deathless, that's a fun one.
SmashTCG: except when he meets a Dragon with more power then him that looks down on him
SmashTCG: then he would get real upset
MaladyDark: @Alephred that's what he's named for
Alephred: Ah, cool.
Alephred: Is it mentioned in-game?
MaladyDark: yup. with a short rundown on the myth
JonnyGlitch: a socipath, even a pro-scial one, doesn't care about loosing their emotions, they have none
theonlyangelx: i love my robot husband :3
PMAvers: Insert Ben's "I wanna fuck a robot" here.

theonlyangelx: what was your lsdt run?
Juliamon: DeckCon
MaladyDark: DECK CON
theonlyangelx: oh right!
MaladyDark: with the noodle machine
Alephred: I heard 'Steel Spirit'
BodaciousNia: taking does get rid of it
theonlyangelx shudders
AmoriLinguae: are we doing a run tonight?
BodaciousNia: Beej, important fact..
BodaciousNia: if you end up with an e-mail marked urgent in your inbox from Mr. Strangler, that's a non-mission thing you need to respond to immediately if you don't want to miss it.
Vyous: For the record, I very much enjoy the talky parts.
AmoriLinguae: I like both parts

someusername5: depends on whether you want to have Koschei be shooty or punchy
someusername5: racter is a support character for his drone
theonlyangelx: yeahhh boiii :3
BodaciousNia: that drone is going to be a death machine
erloas: I'm running the con mission right now, no drunk troll in my run
theonlyangelx: i love my robot husband and his robot "son"
someusername5: when I played this game I went with a rigger with maxed out drone control. rolling out with racter and all drones was a lot of fun.

incredulouspasserby: lol my run was decker/rigger and then two of the main characters overlapped both archetypes I was. It was interesting.
AmoriLinguae: I did decker + shaman and was pretty chromed out
Rioxcon: Makes sense
theonlyangelx: wam po a :3
theonlyangelx: i used to live there, it has sentimental value :3
incredulouspasserby: wait you used to live in Wampoa? That's super cool :D
AmoriLinguae: they're both fun jobs
theonlyangelx: yeah :3
JonnyGlitch: medkits you find on the street? what could go wrong!
Alephred: Hey, these bandages are just stickers!
PixelSavage: I feel they kinda wasted a chance with the shadowrun games - I feel they couldve made this whole series more like a "central hub" to which they could endlessly attach new adventures and runs
asddsa28: cop might be good
JonnyGlitch: is0bel seems thematically correct
theonlyangelx: :3
BodaciousNia: yus
PMAvers: As I understand it, they were kinda pushing the engine to it's limits
notsomuchsuccess: The dreem teem
AmoriLinguae: do you want to take a mage or physical adept?
PMAvers: Hence why they've been working on Battletech stuff, so they can work on a new one on the side.
JonnyGlitch: I love SR, but tbh, not impressed with Harebrained's engine at all
PixelSavage: sure still - shadowrun at its core feels like a game that could work very well with a system that provides a core to which you can attach other things
JonnyGlitch: this is like, early 00s level
OmnipotentTrevor: Why would you? You might miss out on dialogue with your team if you hire others.
theonlyangelx: i like the inherently retro-futur feel of the engine :3
incredulouspasserby: @JonnyGlitch I don't think that's a bad thing, for this game. Plus it allows for player made modules very easilly
incredulouspasserby: Which is a rabbit hole of its own
MaladyDark: TTrpgs are for the most part like that. as the books are written, and then Gms either make up or purchase adventure modules
theonlyangelx: buns!
AmoriLinguae: @OmnipotentTrevor the main reasons are to try out more play styles
Biomonkey01: Yay Beej stream!
PixelSavage: @LoadingReadyRun - hope this is considered "spoiler free" BUT: try to find out as much as you can about this particular neighbourhood
someusername5: can you give wild aim to gobbet?
erloas: isn't not like early 2000s unless you don't look past the view. Personally I find these games to be 100% better RPGs than a lot of other new RPGs we get. We could get the Fallout 3+ version of RPGs which are so divorced from the games they're based on that it isn't even recognizable other than a light veneer
Biomonkey01: I'm just glad we get some good turn-based rpgs still. I'm old and slow, so I like to be able to judge my moves before I make them
TurumbaTV: hi all!
AmoriLinguae: I feel that @Biomonkey01
OmnipotentTrevor: You mean you don't like that they're 'illegal' drugs
theonlyangelx: but is your character?
BodaciousNia: Drugs in shadowrun are basically potions in DnD
SquareDotCube: But CRAM, Beej! Inject it into your eyes! lrrBEEJ
erloas: well everything you're doing is illegal, the drugs aren't any more illegal than breaking into a place and killing everyone
theonlyangelx: CRAM! it's what your liver CRAVES
OmnipotentTrevor: Often, there isn't much difference between what's illegal or prescription, and your character does know a doctor now
erloas: although I don't use drugs in game either
Monkshot_Inc: What’s that all aboot?
Alephred: Jamais vu?
Biomonkey01: Whenever the game gives me drugs, I assume it's a minor benefit for an annoying drawback and generally not worth the trouble
theonlyangelx: no! let my husband speak :P
MaladyDark: rain. so much rain.
someusername5: the rain really fits the mood for this run
theonlyangelx: fun fact my mother used to work at the radio station at the bottom of the boat
AmoriLinguae: I don't mind drugs in shadowrun because my biggest objection to a lot of drugs IRL is that they're not regulated, but in SR, none of them are regulated so ?
JonnyGlitch: @theonlyangelx was it a.. pirate radio...? lrrBEEJ
theonlyangelx: hA!
AmoriLinguae: eep is more likely
Earthenone: was Deus Ex a totem option when you started? :P
JonnyGlitch: I like playing decker shamans
theonlyangelx: his name is DEUS and he is....not good
Master_Gunner: wait, these people worship the Machine God?
Master_Gunner: Are we getting 40k up in here?
theonlyangelx: i believe so
theonlyangelx: but it's technomancy now
theonlyangelx: cause..... otaku has... implications
Rioxcon: decker's don't have dashcams?
PMAvers: Right, but timeline-wise, this is still the 50's.
theonlyangelx nods
theonlyangelx: and the resonance and DEUS ... shenanigans... hadn't really started
Rioxcon: *bodycam, forgot the word for a sec.
theonlyangelx: think it was mostly IMAGO and brainscan atm

SquareDotCube: Throwing a yogurt to confuse the enemy! Genius!
MAPBoardgames: Do it!
asddsa28: called it
JonnyGlitch: teedle-di-di sakapotatoes
Sannindi: I love how you feel the need to do a voice for this character in particular.
Alephred: You kind of have to when the dialogue is written like this.
BodaciousNia: it's good :)
JonnyGlitch: boogers
JonnyGlitch: Tir Na Nog, yikes
PMAvers: Oh my god, I love this woman.
BrowneePoints: It's a Beej!
Alephred: Tir Na Nog is relatively recent in Shadowrun world history, I believe.
JonnyGlitch: not all ears are equal, apparently
JonnyGlitch: Don't Tir Na Nog fancy themselves the "fey court"? or is that another group?
PMAvers: My TM had a specialization in Speil [l33tspeak] that she specifically used to piss off "traditional" elves.
BrowneePoints: @JonnyGlitch They are the ones that took over Ireland
erloas: Tir Na Nog was formed after the awakening of the metahumans, which wasn't all that long ago
JonnyGlitch: @BrowneePoints I figured, but for some reason I have an image of Oberon and Titania
asddsa28: i love her
BrowneePoints: @JonnyGlitch nah Tir Na Nog has a court named after the Tuatha de Danaan
AmoriLinguae: lol, I bet there're some techno-nudists
JonnyGlitch: Ah but they DO form a court-type system right?
tipulsar85: Does she have any Family in Nsberg?
Alephred: Tir Na Nog is the realm, Tuatha is the pantheon, I believe.
MillerCoors: maybe she works in leather and fur
BrowneePoints: @JonnyGlitch 22 families, 8 rule the government
JonnyGlitch: that would be cool if it actually played a role in corp jobs
JonnyGlitch: seabatYIKES what a lame selection of gear
Alephred: Welcome to the techno-enclave. Our selection is crap.
asddsa28: woot
asddsa28: get him in
asddsa28: hes are ace
Alephred: Is his sunglasses pose a David Caruso / CSI Miami joke?

zoe_myr: so its a
theonlyangelx: to answer your questin Beej
Alephred: That seems like poor design.
notaballoon: keeping data on ram chips FailFish
zoe_myr: so its a RAM crive?
LiveFaust: That seems like...poor design...
theonlyangelx: extraterritoriality makes corp deckers legal, shadow deckers are illegal
incredulouspasserby: No wonder Gobbet and Is0bel llive next to each other :P
zoe_myr: thats a thing that exists
someusername5: plot convenient storage
LiveFaust: @zoe_myr but "dirt cheap"?
zoe_myr: oh no defenitly not dirt cheep
Juliamon: I'd... maybe without the curry
notaballoon: does this for the noodle company?
MaladyDark: Cheese curry broccoli sounds amazing
Juliamon: A LITTLE curry maybe
LiveFaust: Like, magnetic static storage is already dirt cheap...
Earthenone: it might have been intenional. knowing your data will cease to exist if you dont go back to it in a few days to charge it could be a good backup plan for a criminal
LiveFaust: I hate it when current tech is more advanced than "cyberpunk tech".
MaladyDark: we live in an exciting cyberpunk future... bit no one seems to have noticed
zoe_myr: @LiveFaust basically its s system where you make a hard drive out of ram cards so that its super fast. but they arnt very common anymore beacuse of solid state and m.2
notaballoon: it's not really more advanced, it's just highly treknobabbled
jschunx: Racter's a smart fella
LiveFaust: @zoe_myr no, I'm familiar. That's my point. Current tech is WAY better.
zoe_myr: @LiveFaust oh ok :) ikr
Alephred: Since this is a techno-enclave, maybe we can assume it was intentional.
zoe_myr: probs
notaballoon: they're not saying they don't have solid state drives
jschunx: I think I remember this segment, but it's been awhile since I played through it
MaladyDark: though, we dont have real VR yet. or holo screens everywhere
notaballoon: they're just saying there's this fictional kind of drive that requires power or else it's wiped cause plot
LiveFaust: @zoe_myr work IT in healthcare. Fast, cheap, and secure is the name of the game.
jschunx: ahh, yeah, I definitely remember this
JonnyGlitch: oh no! you're blocks by a foot and a half of garbage!
JonnyGlitch: blocked*
jschunx: I'm not your guy, friend
MaladyDark: curse this waist haigh wall
jschunx: wonderful, wonderful drugs
zoe_myr: @LiveFaust thats gotta be a boatload of fun l am just fine only having to work with computers a little bit at my pharmacy job
P4r7YG0D: Lucky lol I had to fight em
P4r7YG0D: well not lucky I guess skilled
Earthenone: the "point" of beejs build is to get out of situations without fighting :P
LiveFaust: @notaballoon it's a real thing, I guess the only problem is "dirt cheap". I'd totally buy it otherwise. RAM drive as a failsafe actually seems like a not-bad idea. Still recoverable, but not easily.
SmashTCG: sounds like some sort of street samuri
JonnyGlitch: calcified piss
Alephred: Noooo etiquette fail. :(
jschunx: and this is where we get to be glad we don't have the full sensory perception of the characters
MaladyDark: street samurai are cool.
MAPBoardgames: The weeb?
LiveFaust: @zoe_myr startup-ish TPA that's been booming. Scale up drastically in a short time with a shoestring budget and a setup I inherited from another company... Yeah, stress, but job security. katesLol
JonnyGlitch: cop handyman? a candyman?
Earthenone: our friend with the accent :)
TurumbaTV: thx and bye all!
BodaciousNia: I wanna saw who that sounds like
MAPBoardgames: "All this looks like stolen goods." "Sure is. Want some?"
P4r7YG0D: you have16 karma dood and you can't get another etiquette?
Earthenone: 19 for the 5th
jschunx: Ahh Renraku, with their famous Red Samurai
JonnyGlitch: wow, you can't recognize the characters for Renraku? what kind of runner are you?
BodaciousNia: I wonder if we know of anyone that was tall skinny and hunched over
unusuallylargemoth: OH SHOOT I RECOGNIZE THAT BIT I just realized where you are and you're just a bit behind where I burned out on the game! The character you're gonna meet is *rad*!
incredulouspasserby: @JonnyGlitch considering the main character has been running for a grand total of 5 days....that kind of runner
unusuallylargemoth: I spoi nothing
Alephred: Ah, a good ol' dungeon crawl through the sewers.
JonnyGlitch: @incredulouspasserby yeah but still, they had ads and stuff... probably own Nissan...
JonnyGlitch: it's kinda like not recognizing the Apple logo
JonnyGlitch: (i'm not actually salty)
jschunx: @JonnyGlitch Wouldn't it be more like not recognizing the word Apple in a language you don't speak?
jschunx: It's not Renraku's logo, after all, it's the word Renraku on what is presumably a generic stamp
JonnyGlitch: yeah possibly, all depends on their logo I guess
incredulouspasserby: It's not the logo, it's the Japanese alphabet. That's not gonna be as widely broadcast, given the MC is from Seattle and has a Cantonese upbringing. It'd be more surprising that Is0bel and Gobbet don't recognize it, but the game uses your runners inconsistently.
JonnyGlitch: @incredulouspasserby fair point, and I just looked up the logo it's in english, with what little I know about Renraku I would have thought they would use Japanese characters
incredulouspasserby: It's probably in English because the book is published in English.
jschunx: Global market and all that, I guess
incredulouspasserby: Careful balance between realism and utility. Both in the book/design and in this game.
jschunx: Although, in setting, I think Japanese is a prominently-used language in its own right
incredulouspasserby: @jschunx English, Japanese, and Aztlan Spanish, IIRC
JonnyGlitch: hard to make 連絡 look like a sexy logo?
jschunx: @incredulouspasserby Sounds right. Side note: screw Aztechnology.
unusuallylargemoth: Time for to be very die now
jschunx: no particular reason, except they're super evil and stuff
Dog_of_Myth: lrrSPOOP
theonlyangelx: hue hue hue
unusuallylargemoth: also, quick, chat! What's your favorite Shadowrun Shadowgun?
incredulouspasserby: Literally all the megacorps are
unusuallylargemoth: Ares Predator V or Ares Slivergun for me
MAPBoardgames: Obligatory sewer dungeon.
Dog_of_Myth: Drone is the smart one. LUL
unusuallylargemoth: I have a papertop Adept that dual wields
Alephred: I hope there are rats and smashable crates.
jschunx: yeah, but Aztechnology are explicitly
theonlyangelx: roomsweeper
JonnyGlitch: Aztechnology has a Wendigo running it, according to one of the stories I remember
holir_: WOW! Your character name is Beej too! What are the chances of that?!
JonnyGlitch: No, his character is Adam Savidan
jschunx: @holir_ Yep! Adam "Beej" Savidan
jschunx: dun dun dun!
Alephred: So this was Harebrained Schemes, right?
jschunx: yup
Alephred: Were all the Shadowrun games Kickstarted?
jschunx: I only remember the first one being, but I didn't really pay attention
Juliamon: I know this one was
Earthenone: this new wave has been i think
Earthenone: beej kickstarted this one for sure
Juliamon: The KS was running when Beej played Dragonfall
BodaciousNia: it's now a Muk Bang (spelling?)
MaladyDark: oooh asmr time
JonnyGlitch: enjoy your chocolate mint!
Alephred: That's the name of my Pokemon slash fic.
asddsa28: i konw it is late but i must say i like that there is a time that llr is good for me and im loveing this
JonnyGlitch: or is it a mint that has chocolate in it?
MaladyDark: a mint that is dipped in choc olate?
jschunx: bullcrap, DM, you didn't even let me make a stealth roll!
Alephred: Hm, does Beej care that they're stealing Magpie's stuff?
BodaciousNia: you gonna let them have the loot?
jschunx: too late to kill them, I guess
JonnyGlitch: Man, I really want to play a Wendigo in a Shadowrun campaign, sounds like it would be a massive hassle for a DM
Alephred: That should have been his name. Max Charisma, Esq.
jschunx: Nickname: Min Max?
JonnyGlitch: "Max Charm"?
JonnyGlitch: it's people\
unusuallylargemoth: oh boy oh boy oh boy @LoadingReadyRun you are about to meet one of my favorite characters
theonlyangelx: mmm
Dog_of_Myth: Nope
theonlyangelx: eat someeee
notsomuchsuccess: Long pork
asddsa28: no dont eat it
theonlyangelx: :3
theonlyangelx: >:3c
someusername5: "like pork"
JonnyGlitch: have someone for dinner
Oatway_: porkish, porkesque
BodaciousNia: the OTHER white meat
MAPBoardgames: People. The Other white meat!
BodaciousNia: lol
Juliamon: It's raw, don't... ugh
theonlyangelx: oh god
JonnyGlitch: you want MORE
jschunx: haha
jschunx: Gotta love Gob
unusuallylargemoth: oh god beej at the food why did you do that
jschunx: Well, it's not called Beej DOESN'T eat the whole thing
Alephred: Anecdote: burning my thumb smelled a lot like frying pork.
JonnyGlitch: Congrats, you now have HMHVV
JonnyGlitch: (I wish)
BodaciousNia: a Noh mask
LiveFaust: TEETH
LiveFaust: Sorry, I had to...
JonnyGlitch: @Alephred did it taste like pork?
JoelJohnsonCranidos: hey Beej
jschunx: GUYS, I think this guy might be Japanese!
JoelJohnsonCranidos: hboxFam hboxFam hboxFam hboxFam
JoelJohnsonCranidos: how are you beej
theonlyangelx: :3
JonnyGlitch: lrrCREEPL lrrCREEPR
Alephred: @JonnyGlitch I didn't taste it, I will now wonder forever.
JonnyGlitch: @Alephred missed opportunity
JoelJohnsonCranidos: hboxB hboxAIR
JonnyGlitch: portable and potable
JoelJohnsonCranidos: ATTACK HIM
asddsa28: nooo tyou ate
JoelJohnsonCranidos: slay him where he stands!
asddsa28: <message deleted>noo you ate humain
LiveFaust: Tarp budgets...
JonnyGlitch: he is reasoning and sapient, it would be murder
Mysticman89: <message deleted>why does eatting mystery meat always mean human meat
JonnyGlitch: metahuman meat though, so it's ok
jschunx: I'll admit, I have a soft spot for Gaichu, he's an interesting fella
Juliamon: !spoilers
LRRbot: Please do not discuss spoilers in chat, even jokingly. It's a massive dick move which ruins the fun for others, and you WILL be timed out or even permanently banned. This even applies to "obviously fake" spoilers, so seriously, just don't. Thanks for you co-operation, and enjoy the show!
MAPBoardgames: I'm an uncommon animal
JoelJohnsonCranidos: those weren't spoliers hboxThink hboxThink hboxThink
Mysticman89: didn't he literally just read that was the case?
JoelJohnsonCranidos: ^
Juliamon: Sorry, my stream's a bit laggy
Alephred: Does human count as meta-human though?
JoelJohnsonCranidos: hboxWW hboxWW hboxWW
SmashTCG: be the face
unusuallylargemoth: @LoadingReadyRun Gaichu is my favorite character.
asddsa28: i want him
SmashTCG: i love this guy
niccus: slight upkeep requirements...
BodaciousNia: he would be VERY useful
Metalupis: i like him
Alephred: Max Charisma here is pure face.
theonlyangelx: husband 2!
jschunx: Ghouls are sentient in Shadowrun, with varying levels of rights throughout the world
JoelJohnsonCranidos: let em die
asddsa28: what they have to say
asddsa28: cos i like him
JonnyGlitch: they're humans infected with HMHVV strain, "ghoul" is a bit of a misnomer
erloas: there were smart ghouls in Dragonfall
asddsa28: im a bad person
JonnyGlitch: only some ghouls become feral
JonnyGlitch: prejudice has to go somewhere in the Awakened World
asddsa28: i go the 2 one
kakmize: 2nd one
BodaciousNia: option 1 is punchyer
Juliamon: The "betrayed" really hits
JonnyGlitch: 1 is more neutral
someusername5: (drink)
Alephred: I assume all of these are relevant clues.
jschunx: start from the bottom, work up?
JonnyGlitch: whenever anyone says something is preposterous it's always 155% true
jschunx: and really MOST shadowrunners are killers, too
SmashTCG: you tried
Feminine_Desires: when was the last time you saved?
SmashTCG: what did we miss?
jschunx: I can't remember, is there a way out of that? Did Beej miss something?
MAPBoardgames: Does this mean you're not getting paid?
BodaciousNia: without taking the stuff back from the Vor.. this was the result
theonlyangelx: ^^
Feminine_Desires: Ah
Alephred: I suppose it's not possible to charisma your way out of every murder conspiracy.
Feminine_Desires: Okay, so basically a fight would have happened regardless
Feminine_Desires: But with different people
Laurence72: Hopefully the ghoul will be a powerful ally in this fight?
OmnipotentTrevor: Kindly isn't going to like this result if they're all dead, I wager. She wanted trade restored
BodaciousNia: if you take out the operator, do the drones "die"?

mugsi_: Beej! This playthrough is great, it's wonderful to see you on stream so much this week! lrrHEART
LRRbot: lrrSPOT Thanks for subscribing, mugsi_! (Today's storm count: 43)
niccus: looking it up, you have to be pretty thorough to avoid a fight altogether
jschunx: too much tech, Ithuess
jschunx: *I guess
theonlyangelx: too much tech
JonnyGlitch: need to be a tech wizard
jschunx: I'd back away, and focus fire down one of the non-stunned fellas, personally
jschunx: well, except for Gaichu, he's a wonderfully efficient melee combatant
Mysticman89: while pure charisma isn't necessarily the same thing, is a pure pacifist run possible?
jschunx: yeah, they're all hostile at this point, I don't think they'll stand down
incredulouspasserby: @Mysticman89 not in the slightest
jschunx: Yeah, conversation is usually reserved for the important NPCs, most of the mooks will shoot first and then die
Alephred: So Gaichu mentioned he can't shoot anymore, is he completely blind?
jschunx: Yeah, I think Gaichu has what is effectively a defensive, offensive and balanced stance
JonnyGlitch: oh my god, I'm reading up on the Human Meta-Human Vampiric Virus, apparently Koalas can be carriers for it and they're called "Drop Bears"
incredulouspasserby: There are a lot of ways to reduce the amount of combat in the game, but you will always fight.
jschunx: @Alephred Yep, side-effect of his HMHVV
jschunx: @JonnyGlitch Haha, nice
JonnyGlitch: @Alephred specifically the Krugier strain which causes ghoulism
Feminine_Desires: You don't have to have this fight.
MaladyDark: !uptime
LRRbot: The stream has been live for 4:14:53.
OmnipotentTrevor: Maybe not worth reloading
Feminine_Desires: But it requires going back and doing the Vor stuff differently.
jschunx: gotta say, these elders are not impressing me with their combat ability, though
incredulouspasserby: It comes down to if you have a save before the sewers and want to run through all of that again
jschunx: I... guess that's not a fair to them, though
asddsa28: save
incredulouspasserby: Yes. And you did save before the sewers, specifically.
Feminine_Desires: That vor stuff would probably be a fight still. There's going to be a fight regardless.
Feminine_Desires: Just not a fight with the elders.
Feminine_Desires: You can rollback saves though no? I thought that was a feature.
someusername5: there is a solution without fighting the elders or killing gaichu, but it is pretty difficult to get
jschunx: ah well, they're a bunch of bastards anyway
Juliamon: At this point they deserve it anyway
jschunx: well, except Lam, I guess. He's just a casualty
Earthenone: lam was just doing his job
asddsa28: the bad thing is that you get no $
Alephred: Lam will definitely not be okay with you killing the rest of the elders.
incredulouspasserby: You do get paid if you get the ending you're looking for, if that helps your decision.
Earthenone: also wasent part of this trying to re open trade for kindly?
jschunx: Yeah, $ plus a new companion is the critical success for the mission
asddsa28: at least you to can bond over food
BodaciousNia: you have to take back the stuff from the Vor for that
BodaciousNia: you had to fight SOMEONE
jschunx: well, two other people, right?
incredulouspasserby: No this ending does not get you paid. The "elders are arrested" ending gets paid.
jschunx: gotta roll it back, then
niccus: f to your wallet
JonnyGlitch: but you have a new fren!
Earthenone: can you do the "rollback" on autosave slot?
Feminine_Desires: rewind the autoslave slot?
Earthenone: err quicksave
someusername5: do you want hints about how to do the final dialog?
Earthenone: because we saw you fire one off at some point right before sewers
JonnyGlitch: fren smells a little though
jschunx: Gaichu is a wonderfully interesting character, too, I look forward to seeing your interactions with him
Feminine_Desires: rewinding is a feature.
BodaciousNia: OR just run back to the sewer
asddsa28: plz
asddsa28: you go throw it fast
BodaciousNia: you can go back and confront them
MAPBoardgames: Couldn't you go back down and just take the stuff from the Vor?
jschunx: is it more granular? are there more saves here?
billiam_mayzing: rewind sets a save to a previous point
billiam_mayzing: like if you wanted to get rid of an autosave and put it back to the last time you saved before
jschunx: anything you can check in here?
JonnyGlitch: rewind just seems like "delete this save"
billiam_mayzing: does this feel like cheating?
someusername5: f5 and f9 is part of the genre
JonnyGlitch: reloading in a non permadeath game isn't really scumming tho is it?
asddsa28: i dont think this is what you want
Krokaar: I dislike that term, what's wrong with exploring multiple choices =/
Alephred: Beej's stance on save scumming was explained at the start of this playthrough: freely and often
incredulouspasserby: the 8:15 save is still in the rewind list
Krokaar: Well I haven't been here that long =p
JonnyGlitch: scumming is actively circumventing the fact roguelikes "delete" your save when you load it
asddsa28: yeah i save sum
asddsa28: i would*
someusername5: right. in the end, a single player game is about telling the story you want to tell. if going back makes the story better then do that.
JonnyGlitch: eh but terms change
Feminine_Desires: I guess the moral of this situation is: Save more often!
jschunx: A most useful lession
jschunx: *lesson
Alephred: The save management mini-game is really well done.
jschunx: top of the mission, looks like
LiveFaust: IT advice slogan: save often; save your ass.
incredulouspasserby: you don't need to talk to nearly as many people as you did, since you've seen the most of it.
asddsa28: it was
Feminine_Desires: is this worth it?
asddsa28: amaybe come back another day\
Seabats: you can restart these nuts
MAPBoardgames: Stagger save more often?
Earthenone: well said adam
theonlyangelx: lrrADAM seabatBRAIN
jschunx: so goes life, for everyone except the guys you killed
Feminine_Desires: Maybe do all that offstream? Kinda sucks buut ...
Juliamon: We killed, it happened, deal with it
LiveFaust: I suppose we have to defer to the advice of The Boshy...
Laurence72: Man, they don't even let you loot the bodies? What kind of an RPG is this?? :p
JonnyGlitch: leadership change is good
jschunx: that's fine, they'd have lost their community leaders anyway
JonnyGlitch: out with the old
asddsa28: this place is going to go to shit i gess
JonnyGlitch: perhaps we should do that to all the boomers in the next election Kappa
BodaciousNia: Beej... this also means.. you ate one of the Elders
BodaciousNia: cuz you ate his meat
LiveFaust: "Change in management".
incredulouspasserby: Delicious.
Feminine_Desires: do the level off stream is my only suggestion ...
jschunx: you have gained his power
asddsa28: i restart it and do it some other day
JonnyGlitch: you gained Elder Power!
Laurence72: yup, you are what you eat
MaladyDark: so replay it. on or off stream is up to you
mtvcdm: !next
LRRbot: Next scheduled stream: Dice Friends (Cameron leads our adventurers through a D&D campaign about what happens when the world doesn’t end.) at Mon 05:00 PM PDT (18:19 from now).
jschunx: hehe, I feel your pain Beej, I've had plenty of runs I had to do over because I hated the outcome
MaladyDark: i dont mind. god knows we watch adam replay things over and over
mugsi_: Branch the timeline in great shadowrun fashion
JonnyGlitch: eh I think we get the idea
asddsa28: that sounds like a good idea
someusername5: you can save before everything goes well and play just the better ending on stream, yes
JonnyGlitch: just play upto the final convo with the elders?
MaladyDark: play it yourself up to the sewer? or the to the elders.
MaladyDark: or all on stream. i would watch it.
someusername5: I mean. the problem got 'solved' in a way.
someusername5: no more killings will occur
jschunx: Yeah, anything less than total victory is a bit unsatisfying
LiveFaust: It feels like you got railroaded into a situation where you don't have the options you felt you should have.
JonnyGlitch: no I think you need to create a new save every time, quicksave is for when you don't care
Earthenone: its the classic X-Com problem where you "lost" an hour or two prior and it took the game a while to let you know
jschunx: yuuuup
CaptainSpam: Earthenone: Sounds like the classic Sierra problem, too. :-)
