My girlfriend would like to join our Shadowrun game. She witnessed the first two game sessions and realized how cool the game and the setting is. She would like to make a mage and will start playing with us in a couple game sessions.
By that time I want to make the party realize that they don't have an Awakened character with them and how of an asset a mage could be. Last time I checked she wanted to make an Occult investigator/combat mage hybrid.
I want them to scream in the middle of the fight : I wish we had a mage! How can I do that?
