[SR5] The Complete Trog
« on: (10:40:12/07-24-17) »
This just dropped:



The Complete Trog (Runner Resources)

Big, bad, and awesome

They can call you a trog. Sure they can. Let ’em think it’s smear. Let them show you what they don’t know. Let them ignore history, the great accomplishments orks and trolls have made in every field in the Sixth World, the homes and enclaves they’ve built out of nothing. There’s enough talent in the trog population to punch, hack, rig, charm, or enchant that smug smile right off their face. You know what you are. They’ll learn—fast, if they know what’s good for them.

The Complete Trog is the definitive guide for ork and troll characters in Shadowrun. With information on what it’s like to be an ork or troll in dozens of spots across the globe, details on working in corps as a trog (including in ork- and troll-dominated corps) and the heroes and enemies of trog culture, the book helps players add flavor and depth to their characters and the world around them. On top of that, it has gear, qualities, and life modules compatible with both Shadowrun, Fifth Edition and Shadowrun: Anarchy. Plunge into the rich culture of trogs and watch them turn that slur on its head.

Certainly an interesting topic.
I might give this a try at some point.
Still waiting on a Vector-Thrust Liminal Body.

why are things being released so quietly?  If didn't stalk dtrpg regularly wouldn't have seen this.

There's a blog post on the SR page, and it was announced on Facebook. 

And every time someone whines about the lack of TM book, the TM book gets pushed back another week ;)

(In all seriousness, my understanding is that it's an eBook, and right now the entire eBook line is on hiatus due to the guy who was handling it needing to step out due to his day job.  So there's no one to wrangle those books right now.  I also think the original author that wanted to do the book had to step out for some reason as well.  So without an author or a developer, hard to do a book for them.  And hey, *I* could write you a TM book if you want, but you're probably better off waiting for someone actually interested in and who likes Technomancers to write the damn thing. My version of a TM book would not be pretty. :))

Also, thanks to CZ Wright, we finally get some concrete rules and an explanation for how Bull's lived so long. :)

I like that the crunch comes with Anarchy statting to make it quick and easy to insert any of it into the Big A.

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

And what's wrong with someone stepping in to work on the eBooks until that whoever will step back in?
Yeah, TMs got thrown in the cell with Bubba the Love Troll and sandpaper for lube.

See, that's an Upper Management Question, I believe above even Jason Hardy's paygrade (and quite definitely way, WAY above mine).

And don't get me wrong, my complaints stem from a decades long Shadowrun addiction.  Dropped some cash as soon as spotted it.  ::)

Guess I'm just missing that great tumblr account we had for awhile, sated  that unnatural craving for SR info.

I feel like an Upper Management Question™ implies that there's both someone to ask and an answer to follow. Both I've not seen much of throughout the Shadowrun side of CGL. Like being "on-hold" for an hour and forty-five minutes with your phone company just to change a billing address. >.>
