    Welcome to the forum, Bronson. Your character has a good start!

    I am wondering about some items... is your hacker's notebook your (refluffed) spellbook? That's cool. Then the portable hacker's drive is your focus? That's also cool. It allows you to access the matrix anywhere on earth (GPS).

    Your powers in the real world are a result of your cybernetic augmentation. As with anyone using cybernetics, you are vulnerable to electricity.

    In the matrix your powers function for your avatar as if like "magic spells", and you suffer no vulnerabilities.

    Stats of an Avatar are based on the "real" character's mental/social stats:
    Avatar / Character
    DEX = INT
    STR = WIS
    CON = CHA

    Hope that makes sense!

    Your connections with your Faction garner you proficiencies in Insight and Deception. You also gain a Pearl of Power, which gives you a boost once a day to your cybernetic powers (see the DMG, p.184).

    As with everyone who has a faction, you gain a trusted contact. He doesn't fight for you, but can relay reliable intel and information that he might know.

    A couple more comments...

    We will be using the Arcana skill for stuff like occultic knowledge and esoteric magic. It may come in handy when encountering the the dark rituals that your characters might discover. Computer knowledge and use will be covered under Investigation.

    The hacker's drive is known as an etherscope focus. In this setting, the Matrix exists inside the ethereal plane. The manmade data complex inside that dimension is known as the Etherscope.

    *I will be posting much more info about etherscope technology in the The Matrix thread.

    Ernest Osborn's background

    Post  MrBrownstone75 on Sun Jun 14, 2015 10:52 pm

    Ernest Osborn is a techie, cyber security expert, ether spy, and native of the Seattle region. He began life believing what he was told about the world, that the factions only wanted what was best for its citizens. As Ernest matured, he began to see the darker side of what the factions were capable of, he began to mistrust their power, and thus began his life-long search for the truth of it all. He eventually ended up finding a group of like-minded individuals who had formed their own faction to fight the ever increasing power of the others; those only known to the rest of the world as Anonymous. Through mastering the etherspace like no one else could, Anonymous was able to seek out and expose the corruption present in the world. They began to influence public policy, and made powerful individuals think twice before blatantly lying to the public. Anonymous would know.
    Ernest has served Anonymous faithfully as an etherspace spy for 4 years under his code name "Horus11". He knows much of how to navigate the creatures and traps present throughout the net; those things that wait for some unauthorized fool to wander into the wrong domain. Over the years he has even stumbled upon a few hidden stashes of unclaimed insurance money, tax returns, and 401Ks that have kept his finances afloat. About two weeks ago, Ernest while in etherspace, met with a new contact from his faction, a shadowy, definitively female creature that goes by the name of "Catwalk". She has thus far passed along some good information to Ernest, but seems like she is anxious about something. As if she desperately wants to give out more information, something that seems to be bothering her, but can't.

    Ernest Osborn's Powers:
    Rob, just let me know if something here doesn't work. I know we talked about spells being used in etherspace and physical reality, but needing cybernetics there. I assume all these spells have some cyberware implementation as well as their etherspace (software only) uses.

    Cantrips:
    Light
    Message
    Prestidigitation

    1st Level:
    Chromatic Orb
    Expeditious Retreat
    Identify
    Mage Armor

    2nd Level:
    Invisibility
    Locate Object

    Looks good. Most spells will be useful in both the real world and in the matrix. In the real world they are cybernetic powers, in the matrix they are programs.
