Sometimes, it's not what you know, chummer. Sometimes it's who you know.
From time to time, there will be contacts available for "purchase" through RunnerHub. The costs of these vary as do the capabilities, connections, and loyalty of each. In addition to their standard roles as Contacts and unique abilities, these Contacts do some services that benefits the entire RunnerHub community. They even occasionally serve as Johnsons, etc. for RunnerHub jobs.
Contact Acquisition RulesEdit
These Contacts are always available - however, this is a Living World and the status of these contacts can change. ThingsTM can happen to them ... and not always good things. Contacts have been kidnapped, wounded, or even killed. When in doubt, check with your GM.
- Cost: Each contact will cost a number of "points." Each point can be paid by either 2,000 nuyen, or 1 karma. Players can mix and match payment types - for example, a two point contact could be paid for with 4,000 nuyen, 2 karma, or 2,000 nuyen and 1 karma. Equivalent GMP (at the normal GMP exchange rate) is also acceptable for payment. Unless otherwise stated in the Contact's description the choice to pay with nuyen or karma has no effect on the relationship with the Contact. Don't forget to deduct the costs on your character sheet, and be careful (especially at chargen) - not all Contact costs equal the Contact's connection + loyalty!
- Picking up a contact: If the contact is new, you can still add your character's name to the Reddit entry, and list how that individual will pay for the contact. However, after a period Reddit threads no longer allow new comments; if this is the case, please inform a GM before/during/after a run that your character is acquiring the Contact. Deduct the costs, shake hands, and move on!
- More RP: When you make the commitment to pick up a RunnerHub Contact, posting on its thread can be a good opportunity for RP and building your character's own unique relationship with their new Contact. A post of perhaps what you did when you met them, things discussed, some zany adventures, that kind of thing.
- Community input: TD and GMs occasionally solicit input on new RunnerHub Contact ideas. Keep your eyes on Reddit and OOC chat!
This table is updated within 1 week of any change to the Reddit listings for RunnerHub Contacts. If you notice discrepancies here or on the Contacts' wiki pages, please contact Hubkeep immediately. Thanks!
