Earning A Rep
Your Reputation scores track how well-known you are in the shadows.
Street Cred represents a character’s lifetime accomplishments. The more they’ve done and accomplished, the more respected they’ll be by their peers.
Notoriety represents the negative side of the character’s reputation. If they are difficult to work with, stubborn, unskilled, fatally flawed, or prone to failure, word is going to get around about them. Notoriety can also reflect callousness, untrustworthiness, and any evil aspects to a character’s personality that might spur others to steer clear of her.
Public Awareness represents how well the character is known among the media, authorities, and public at large. With only a few exceptions, shadowrunners are always working to ensure that the public doesn’t know anything about who they are or what they have done. Only when something goes wrong, or the situation is unavoidable, do the actions of a runner become public.
Watch these carefully, chummer. They will affect how everyone else in the world interacts with you…
