Cool. Standard 400 point character build or you can use one of the premades out of the book.

If no previous Shadowrun experience is required, I would like to join as well.

I'll post every other day, unless everyone has already posted and is ready to advance. I'm aiming low, you can post more if you want to.

I'd suggest to everyone that you start with a pregen if you haven't played before.

Three people is enough to get ready. We can start whenever characters are selected.

I'll go with either a pregen weapon master or street samurai. What is everyone else going to use?

Any of these selections should work. You can also feel free to adjust any of the skills or qualities if you feel the need to do so.

Shadowrun doesn't really work like that. There aren't classes in the game, just general jobs. Hackers, Street Samurai, and Magicians are the three extremes of the three worlds (Matrix, Mundane, and Astral). Between them are Adepts, Riggers, Faces, Infiltrators, and a host of other criminal positions. As general advise you'll want someone who can interact with the Matrix, someone who can Astrally Perceive, and somebody with plenty of armor and guns.
