Shadowrun Cyberpunk Imaginations

Another step to one side from d20 systems (it is getting a bit repeating – the 3e vs. 4e discussions everywhere) so I can take a timeout to give a short overview on the upcoming afternoon today.

Thomas is once again pushing us into the not-so-far future, where corporations rule most of the world, it’s a not-so-unlikely scenario for the future, that was (as most of you will know) first addressed by William Gibson in his Cyberpunk Trilogy ( imho a must read for science-fiction fans ). When they created Shadowrun they took a fair share of fantasy & magic and mixed this setting to Cyberpunk – back then they just added a few years to the time (and I would really like to know how many Shadowrun fans waited for the great Awakening)…

We – are in a slightly different world than the core-books introduce, it is no hardcore SR party, but a campaign focussing on the dark aspects of the world. Currently we’re working in New Orleans and Pensacola and will probably infiltrate one of the CAS troop-posts over there this afternoon. We is referring to Jenny’s Nuyin – a chinese cosim fan & chocolate junkie, Andrea’s Pallas – a former con girl, Roman’s “we will see” (as he wasn’t really happy with his character last time and has called for a possible change) and my little rigger, Katinka.

Our last run in New Orleans lead us into Ares area to take a few samples of water and soil, which we accomplished pretty well and without a firefight. The next one in Pensacola will probably be a lot harder and we’ll need a lot of luck to make sure we will not be facing armed resistance there. I’ll try to put things together for another posting to summarize the events this afternoon.
