So how do people work Rep in their campaigns.
I haven't seen it in 3rd Ed yet (but the reading is slow going for me :)
and 2nd just did it straight out of the karma award. I was thinking their
would be a different rep score for each concentration of Etiquette and was
hoping someone had already worked something out.

Also does anyone have a simple game mechanic for when rep goes bad. Case in
point: my character was kidnapped (he is a decker with a decker gang, info
broker, etc.) The group exchanged him to a corp for an important decker (who
had helped my gang on a high paying data run). My initial reaction was to
just go up in a ball of flame with the other PCs since they obviously
destroyed any trust my people would have with me. Thankfully, out of luck
(or the GM not wanting me to destroy the group) the decker was rescued.

How would you handle that as a Rep maker/breaker or modifier to reactions?

MSN Photos is the easiest way to share and print your photos:

I keep track of who the runners have pissed off, who likes the runners, and
just kind of extrapolate who knows that and whether or not, and how, it
affects their opinion of the runners.

I.e., I don't boil it down to a number ;)
