      I won't be available, but I do want to know why you don't just start a Kickstarter to buy all the FASA licenses back from Microsoft.

      If you can read german I would recommend the books of Markus Heitz "Schattenjäger" + "Schattenläufer" both are 3-in-1 books of books he published earlier. He is a realy fantastic author but I don't know if his are translated into english.

      hmm i dont know a fall out 2 targeting system... i have killed myself to many times with that lmao!! i was more so hopping for possibly a traditional JRPG style on the fighting personally speaking but that is me i have not played the stuff in so long i am only 22 so i dont know all of the fan stuff on this i played the snes and xbox mostly

      I'm still playing the tabletop every week. Very excited about a new game. I really hope it's basically a seriously expanded version of the Sega game with a quicker decking minigame and some physical adepts. Also, I like some of the somewhat lesser used cyberware and I really hope they're included in the game. Like the Activesoft Skillwires and Smartlink II to lower called-shot modifiers. Which then makes me hope that you can call shots in this one. I would love a Fallout 2 style targeting system. Real excited, guys.

      I bought the first 5 which includes Never Deal with a Dragon and 2XS. Plus, I picked up Wolf and Raven. Thanks again!

      The Sega Genesis game is what exposed me to Shadowrun, and I'd always hoped for more of it. Didn't much care for the SNES game's play control, so I didn't make it but ten minutes into that one before it went into a storage bin.

      I'd always hoped for more Shadowrun on a console or PC, since my tabletop days are long behind me.

      Personally, I found Stackpole's Wolf and Raven to be the best Shadowrun book. It is actually a compilation of his short stories in the universe tied together to form a longer story, so you get a lot of variety (something that would benefit someone new to the setting).

      2XS and the Never Deal with a Dragon Trilogy are good stuff. If you can deal with snes and genesis era video games, definately check those shadowrun games out. They are both great games but i tend to like more sandboxish games like the genesis version. Another way to get a feel for shadowrun is to check out one of the pen and paper rulebooks. 1st edition should cover the time period in shadowrun returns.

      I'm not sure about it but when I was introduced to shadowrun by a good friend he advised me to start reading the 3 book circle starting with "Shadowrun 01: Never Deal with a Dragon" Honestly speaking I did not read it to the end yet, but at least the beginning was quite nice.

      NEED HELP / ADVICE (opinions wanted!)
      I'm a backer, but no nothing about the Shadowrun universe having never played a game in the world or read anything about it. That being said I love reading and wanted to see if there were any books. I found out that there are over 40!! Wow, where should I began? Is the beginning necessary? Are there better novels than others? The rebooted the books in 09, should I start there or is this deep into it? THANKS!

      How many shadowrun groupies dressed as heart from the novels have you slept with at the diffrent CON's around the world

      You guys are tossing Jordan to the wolves at Reddit? Ouch. Is this part of his rehabilitation?

      @Matt Is Berlin a particularly popular city among ballet dancers? I suppose probably more so than any of the other options, but would there really be enough ballerinas and danseurs voting to sway the vote that much?

      @Nicholas Russell: Try Myth Weavers or Real Role Playing if you're looking for play by post. I'm in several Shadowrun games on those boards (2x3e, 1x4e).

    27. Matt on

      How much ballet stuffing happened to ensure that Berlin won the spot for the second city? (lols)

      Does Jordan Weisman know how to make getting an online pnp Shadowrun group easier?

      Does Jordan Weisman listen to Rhapsody of Fire??

      Will it be an official AmA (in the reddit sidebar) or will it need to be linked to directly like the Jane Jensen one?
