Texas -based Shadowrun setting?
« on: (08:03:23/08-31-11) »
Hey to the powers that be, I was wondering if there were any plans being kicked around for a Texas/southwest setting book for Shadowrun?  I was just thinking it could be like the Sixth World meets Mad Max and the Wild West.  Anyways just a thought  ;)

If you wanted Sixth World meets Mad Max you could set it in Australia :P

It's like Texas today, only with Drones and a legitimate fear of Illegals from Aztlan (Mexico) because they'll be armed and have a logistics support train behind them.

And lots of awakened critters.

Plenty of illegals from Aztlan (Mexico) already come across armed with logistic trains, but we'll leave that one alone.

This wouldn't be such a bad idea. Being in Texas myself, it'd be nice to have a source book with some official setting info to run a game in the "local" area.

It's on my list of things to do, but it is, sadly, rather further down the list than I'd like. More immediate irons in the fire, though if someone proposes such a thing I'd be happy to look it over and offer my thoughts.

It's definitely something we should tackle one of these days.  Show all the Seattle-ites they aren't the Alpha and Omega.  Texas is.  Duh.  ;)

Poor Texas. No matter how hard they try, they're always number two. (Alaska for area, California for population, California for GDP...)

I would happily hammer away on a CAS suppliment. Texas, Atlanta, Tennessee, New Orleans, then feather out the rest. I have concepts for Mississippi, Arkansas, and Alabama, and, geeze, you don't even want to *know* how much butter I could churn for the Vol Sprawl.

It's been 21 years. I think it's time to meet the neighbors, y'know? :)

Meh.  CAS should just quietly fold up, and get divvied up between Aztlan and the UCAS ;)

<grin>

You think the Tir had trouble in northern California? Just wait to see what happens if Aztlan tries to take over the CAS.

Half of the CAS gets nuked, and the other half is rendered uninhabitable due to biochem weapons.
