Shadowrun, where man meets machine and magic

TheidarTheidar Registered User regular
edited July 2008 in Social Entropy++
The year is 2070, corporations are the new super powers, poverty is at an all time high, the world is linked together via a wireless network called the matrix, and magic has returned bring with it elves, trolls, orcs, dwarves, dragons and other monsters believed to be myths.

Want more details check this out:http://www.shadowrun4.com/resources/timeline.shtml

In this world many groups need things done that can't be traced back to them. That's where you come in you're a professional shadowrunner, you make things happen for people when they can't do it themselves or don't want anyone to know they've done it. So who are you?

A mage or shaman slinging spells and commanding spirits.
A decker or techmance the masters of the Matrix subverting and infiltrating computer systems.
A street samurai who replaced his humanity with cybernetics to become a killing machine.
A physical adept who channeled his magic inward enhancing his own natural abilities to superhuman level.
A face who can charm the pants off anyone and negotiate their way out of or into anything.
Or maybe something else entirely.


Okay there's been some interest expressed to me in an online game of Shadowrun. I'd be happy to run it, but probably won't be able to start until August, due to moving and my boards coming up quickly. Plan is to use vent, I'm open to suggestions on other applications we can use.

Right now the plan is to do 4th edition, but I could be very easily swayed to do 3rd.

Current roster:
1. Straightzi
2. Belruel
3. Candanavian
4. Defenestrator

I can run it with the 4 of them, but I could go as high as 6 players.

Post here and PM me to add you to the list. I'm busy today, but will check in tonight.
Also try to come up with character ideas.

I have all the rule books released so far, so I can help iron out/round out character creation. Unwired(Expanded Matrix rules) comes out the end of this month and I'll be picking that up to so if someone want to be a decker or technomancer, we can fix the PC up once I get the book.

    Shadowrun was a pretty fun game, but I always thought Adepts were broken. It seems like every time I was in combat with one in the team we'd have to have really tricked out people thrown at us to make it a challenge. Then again, that's probably been fixed by now.

    genesis game was pretty cool

    although not true to the rules of Shadowrun, you could use magic and cyberware at the same time

    I can do this.

    Everytime I try to get into a game the DM just kinda quits after about 2 sessions.

    There was a short-lived game in Critical Failures where I almost set a car full of bad dudes on fire.

    I say almost, because the GM misread my post and thought I was one success under. I was pretty D: , I really wanted to see the resulting destruction.

    That character was awesome though, I talked the GM into letting me take Addiction: Pyromania as a flaw.

    I prefer 3rd or 2nd too. But I'm willing to give it a go since its what Straightzi has the books for.

    Glad to see that there's interest, I haven't gotten any PM's yet.

    As to schedule, I would try to be flexible and run it every 1-2 weeks when all or most of the team can make it. Like I said probably won't be able to do it or at least do it regularly til August.

    No prior experience required, access to books would be helpful though also not required.

    That's cool, the main book is nice to have to allow you to make your guy completely on your own, but we should be able to do it still.
