Harebrained Studios, the company making Shadowrun Returns, is seeking character names!
I thought some of you would be interested in this.
“Help us fill out our roster of hire-able Shadowrunners! We need a long list (over 100) of runner names and short descriptions (108 characters only – please count, the form won’t do it for you!). We’ll match the names and descriptions to our runner portraits so we won’t need (or accept) physical descriptions. Enter as many names as you like. Feel free to use characters from your game but don’t use any from Shadowrun fiction. We don’t want to mess with canon. Thanks!”
I’m submitting a bunch of NPCs (with some liberties taken). I’m not submitting any of your characters, but if you are interested you should!
Count your characters! The form doesn’t.
Here’s who I’ve submitted thus far. I’ll update the list as I add more.
If there are any others you want me to submit, let me know!
They will probably receive thousands of submissions, but who knows, maybe some of them will become cannon.
Male / Human / Rigger
A chromed out “Transportation” specialist for the corps by day, drone rigger by night.
Female / Human / Mage
A pyromancer whose looks are as hot as her skills. She’ll use all her “assets” to get the job done.
Goldgar (One of my coworkers)
Male / Dwarf / Decker
A corporate drone who developed anarchist tendencies after years of working tech support.
Male / Troll / Shaman
A demonic looking troll obsessed with summoning spirits to increase his power.
Sealie (My dog)
Male / Elf / Adept
A man of endless energy whose as lethal with his bare hands as most are with a blade.

Misha Salsbury (Character I was using in short stories)
Female / Human / Decker
A highly professional, if picky about who she works with, technology wiz seeking to supplement her income.

A youthful runner on an endless quest for adventure. She’ll take any job and she works for cheap.

Professor Julian Creaks
Male / Human / Mage
An intellectual wizard who takes odd jobs to fund his research, especially if they further his studies.
