Shadowrun, 5th Edition is the newest version of one of the most popular and successful role-playing worlds of all time - a fusion of man, magic. The Topps Company, Inc. Shadowrun is a registered trademark of The Topps Company, Inc., in the United States and/or other countries. Permission given. Items 1 - 43 of 43 EVERYTHING HAS A PRICE There are cracks in the world. They're slender, dark, and often cold, but they are the only things that keep you.

If players do not play a specific 'archetype' who brings a set of skills then handwave away the complexity of the mechanics in that area to still allow players to take part in it - e. There is plenty in the core and probably too much mechnical stuff already! Setting detail is also available online through Wikis and asking on forums, etc. If I were running for the first time, with a group of new players who may baulk at the complexity I suggest the following character archetypes are allowed and th eothers soft-banned i.

The next main stumbling block I find is the equipment section. Some people love digging through it and making sure they've got 7 APDS rounds just in case and others really just want to have the basic tools to do their job and live out their character's fantasy and having the equipment list be this massive wave of stuff that you can't tell is relevant or not is a real impediment to that.

I recommend making a few generic 'profession packs' for things like breaking and entering, stealth ops, fake IDs and licenses, etc. Players have the option to download individual bits if they want and for those players less interested they can just grab a profession pack. If you go down this route I do suggest making players pick out any signature equipment themselves first - often this means a lovingly pimped out gun or CC weapon, a Hackers 'Deck', someone's motorbike, the Tank's suit of armour, etc.

She waited for the barrage to cut her down. Kowalski and Miller shoved the woman, helmetless and glaring, into the room and handed her Ingram to Barbour. Leave her here, he told them. Go find that troll and the ork, if hes still alive.

Ten things I hate about Shadowrun

Kill em if you need to. They nodded and left, and Barbour turned back to the prisoner. Her expression was all wary defiance, like a caged animal.


But she couldnt hide from him. Not this close up. She stared, really seeing him for the first time. It cant be. It cant He looked different.

No more ponytail, no more piercings, no more scraggly little beard. Hed even gotten rid of the edgy facial tattoo.

But there was no mistaking those green cat cybereyes, or the curve of his lips. Unlike her, the years had been kind to him.

Dont sound so surprised. She couldnt keep the bitterness from her tone, nor the shake from her voice. The jazz was wearing off in earnest now, the familiar slow spiral down to hell beginning its fresh descent. Images flashed through her mind, unbiddenimages of the two of them. Of the way things used to be, before everything had gone to drek.

She felt like she was going to puke. No thanks to you. Yeah, I know. You dumped me for my own good. Couldnt handle me and my monkey. She looked around. Sold out, I see. Good little corp drone. Never thought Id see that. What happened they lure you in with the wife and the kids and the perfect little apartment? He looked away. What are you doing here, Linda? Why do you care? He knew.

Johnson knew he was here. That fragging sadistic bastard knew. He wanted this. Tell me. Her injured arm was screaming, her jammed cyberarm so much hanging dead weight dragging down her left side.

Youll never let me leave with what I came for. Linda He could barely look at her, at her shaking form, her pale sweating face, those eyesnothing had changed. Two years, and nothing had changed. It would have been better if she really had died. He made a decision and hated himself for it, but old times counted for something. Linda, justget the hell out of here.

Ill look the other way if you do it now.

But she shook her head. I cant. Her voice held a desperate plea. Why not? Im giving you a way And then, suddenly, she was sobbing, her carefully constructed facade of invulnerability and bravado crumbling like eggshells. Tom, please. Not without the prototype. Theyll kill me. You might as well kill me now if you dont let me have it. Itd be faster and cleaner. Her eyes came up: the brown eyes that had twinkled at him so many times over lingering evening soykafs, on runs, across their bed.

TomIm in trouble. I owe the Yak big.

If I can do this, they said my debts paid. I can start fresh. Get myself clean. Even as she said it, she knew it wasnt true.

Knew theyd meant for her to die in here. But still she kept on, because what else could she do? She was disgusted at herself, but you did what you had to do. Whatever you had to do. Please, Tom.

Im begging you. If the old days ever mattered Barbour bowed his head. She didnt even realize how much everything about her posture, her expression, her entire body belied her every word. He looked away again, ashamed as she was at her face twisted into the unfamiliar attitudes of pleading. La Gata never begged for anything.

Not in all the time hed known her. Not the Gata hed known. But shes not the Gata I knew. Thats the point, really, isnt it?

Imsorry, Linda, he said at last. His eyes glittered; his voice shook. He glanced at the holo of Celeste and the baby. I cant do it.

Are you sure?

I A foul odor preceded a muffled sound from behind Gata. A small red hole appeared in the middle of Toms forehead, and a red spray fanned out behind him. For a second he looked almost comically surprised, and then his body collapsed backward over the console, green cat cybereyes frozen open.

Gata spun.

Shark staggered around the doorway holding his smoking SMG, his helmet visor shoved up to reveal his unconcerned face. Fraggin chicks, he said with contempt. All the same. Talk too much. Lets get the thing and get the hell outta here.

I got stuff to do and DocWagon to see. If hed been expecting it, shed never have gotten away with it.

But he wasnt. When she ripped the HK from his hand with her trembling meat arm and blew his sneering face away, he didnt even see it coming. She stood there holding the gun, the shakes rippling through her body. There is no way you can do this without scratch paper, and these are rules for explosions.

No, these are rules which the GM is supposed to look up every time someone throws a grenade near a surface.

Not only do they have to work out if the wall is destroyed or not, but if it remains intact, they then have to calculate how many times each target is hit by the blastwave as it rebounds within the space.

This is a terrible idea. You take the excitement of an explosion and render it down into a series of calculations. Similarly, here is a section of the rules which covers firing a weapon on full auto: These rules actively slow down something which should be too-fast and brutal, which is holding down the trigger on your gun and firing off as many rounds as you can at something in a desperate attempt to kill it before it kills you.

These are rules in which you divide a thing by three and then start adding numbers to it before you subtract additional numbers which gives you a running total that you subtract from an entirely different set of numbers. Also, it makes you roll Initiative every single round, and to hell with that.

If you want to move faster than your base allowance of movement, everything else — aside from defending — becomes harder to do. They are faceless hordes whose only purpose is to die at your hand, or drive you away from your objective. They go down much, much more easily than named characters. This a world set up in which the player characters are badass from the word go: the only thing that can pose a threat to them in their normal locales is other Prime Runners or being vastly outnumbered by level-appropriate Grunts.

How is that fun?

How is that illustrative? How is that better than abstracting movement into adjectives that describe relative positions, which is all we really care about anyway?Hed even gotten rid of the edgy facial tattoo.

Those days seemed so long ago now, but it was true. Matrix rules have been improved and streamlined, bringing them more in line with the rest of the game and making them more intuitive. These work together to solve a major problem in creating magic users from previous editions because you were severely starved for skill points.
