Please.

Remember that if it was authorized, then it's part of the canon.  No, I cannot, because all the hype is about elves, but the fact of the matter is that since First Edition 'spike babies' have been enshrined in canon as being of both dwarf and elf metaspecies.  Don't presume that just because one isn't named they don't exist.

... and the Irish individual you mentioned (Liam O'Conner) probably actually isn't a spike baby, but an Immortal Elf.

BABY = Black And Blue Yearbook, aka the SR3 Limited Edition book.

We already had two different BBB's (Big Blue Book, aka SR1st Ed, and Big Black Book, aka SR2nd Ed), so we needed a new name for it.  And the year it came out, a TON of us from the ShadowRN message boards either went to Gen Con, or sent money to someone to pick them up a copy (I picked up *10* copies of the damn thing for folks in Canada, England, Germany, and Australia).  A lot of folks that year (and over the next couple years) used the books to get signatures from SR artists, authors, and anyone else who worked at FASA at the time, as well as fellow Shadowrunners and friends.  It was, in essence, like a High School Yearbook for us.  Hence the name.

Clearly you weren't paying attention in class, Medicineman.

BABY = Black And Blue Yearbook, aka the SR3 Limited Edition book.

Ah ha!! ... I'm pretty sure I don't have one.  Hardcover?

And I fondly remember ShadowRN.  Been ages since I played on it.

Yeah, Hardcover.  It's similar to the SR4 LE's, except it had the SR "S" logo foil embossed on the cover in metallic blue.

I sold mine years ago duringa  epriod I was really strapped for cash (Someone offered me $300 for it).  I still kick myself for letting it go :(  I had most of the old FASA crew's signatures and a ton of sketches from Laubenstein, Skuzzy, Jim Nelson, Baxa, and a couple other old artists, plus a lot of the old RN gang.

There seems to be a serious problem with that image, unless it is supposed to be a copyright violation notice...

There's been a term here, "necro" that's been confusing me. I'm thinking black robes and skeletons. Does this have a forum meaning?

Most likely refers to "thread necromancy", which is the posting on a thread that has not had activity for a significant amount of time, thereby bringing it back to life (like a form of necromancy). Kind of like what you just did!
