What's wrong with plaid?  Everyone looks at you, but nobody sees you ... they see the plaid.

It isn't the plaid itself, it's what it means to me. And it means: "Memories of a strange elf wearing nothing but a plaid kilt and close-matching facepaint eviscerating a dozen burly men with a rapier."
(And I thought Seattle was weird; Denver is a strange, silly place)
No idea who he is or what his issue was, but he had some manifested spirit playing the bagpipes as he..."worked"; meticulously carving a disturbingly accurate plaid pattern into their bodies as they fought.

I stood in dumbfounded shock and silence until he finished, then shot a glance at me. It's kind of a blur after that. I don't know how many miles I put between me and him, and I'm still not sure if it was enough. *shudders*

The issue was a highly personal one. It's better if you don't ask how I know that.

Fine by me. I didn't get to where I am by asking questions I don't need the answers to.
All I know, is that I can't operate in Denver anymore, and just thinking "Dinty Moore" gives me the creeps.

Okay, so I guess, I should swing by and say hello!

Ive been around for some time, but before I got the urge to actually make an account, I was just one of those "guests" lurking around and reading old, forgotten threads. ;)
(And to the rest of my team, who are probably lurking around aswell, if youre reading this: Stop hiding and start signing up, dammit! )

Im still new to Shadowrun, especially since  it seems that a great deal of you guys has been running since 1st or 2nd edition... :P But its great, then I can draw on you awesome knowledge and creative powers!

Good attitude to have; if you think you know everything, you can learn nothing.
And Shadowrun is a pretty intricate and complex game on the whole.

There are occasional recruitments for the PBP games here, you just have to keep an eye open for them as they only come up when a GM is willing to put the effort into it. OTOH, if you want to GM a PBP game, just put a shout out to see if there is interest from the player base. (many of us here don't do PBP games, for whatever reason)

Verification thing came into effect after the site got spammed by a few dozen bots posting craptastic ads to random shit.... as a new member you have to put up with it for a few posts before it disappears. (I think 10 or so)
Where am I going? And why am I in a hand basket ???

Hey there, welcome to the forum Dasher.

Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

Hello everyone.

Think about get back into Shadowrun, last time I played was 3rd Ed.

A friend gave me his extra 4th Ed corebook.

Question is should I pick up the 5th Ed corebook or stay with 4th Ed.

Welcome!

In looking at 4th vs 5th, people tend to have some strong opinions. Both are good systems with pros and cons; I tend to prefer 5th, but YMMV. I'd suggest getting a couple of games under your belt with each (you could use the 4e and 5e QS rules to get a rough feel for each of the systems). The fluff and setting is pretty much system-agnostic...so I wouldn't worry too much about that side of things. If your group is into more of a "rules light" system, you might also want to check out Shadowrun Anarchy.

Hello, goodfolks.

I've been playing Shadowrun every so often for about two years now and I played a very briefly lived online gamea few years before that. Most of the reasons for my being here stem from the fact that I won't be able to make it to the group that I'd been playing with for the last few months, and, I, I don't know, wanted something to fill the gap?

Anyways, it's nice to meet you all.

Err, I meant, hi!
Just got back into playing actively recently, using SR5 now.
Traditonally our group's lore-teller, I thought I'd dig myself in some old (and well, some new) books and connect online for the time being.
