Shadowrun: Seattle Nights
Earning and Using Legwork
When doing leg work, describe what you're doing and grab ideas with the GM to create a pool to roll. Everyone involved may do this and all success will be added to a pool and divided by the difficulty (1-6) and a number of "Intel" will be given to the party to gain information.
The party can:
Spend an "intel": Ask a question which the GM must answer truthfully.
i.e. What kind of physical security they have?
Spend 2 "intel": To gain an advantageous position to the start of mission
i.e. I'd like to place myself at a stealthy point where I can access their host (rolls necessary)
Spend 2 "intel": To gain/use a contact to set up an advantage position or event (once per player per mission)
i.e. I'd like to find a contact / use a contact of mine to hand me a valid pass to enter the premise (rolls necessary)
Spend an "intel": To start a flash back, just like the Edge house rule
