Conspiracy Theories is evidence that the Shadowrun writers do not need a whole lot of pushing to get nuts. Great dragon conflicts? Sure! Bug spirit rumors? Absolutely! Stories of strange relationships between humans and dragons? Well, why not? And that's only part of it.

The book is full of stories and rumors that range from the possibly plausible to the quite deranged, but the biggest challenge is figuring out which is which. It's also got plot updates, setting info for London and DeeCee, and some magic rituals that are not easy to cast but could have stunning effects--if anyone ever manages to get everything they need to cast them.

You can read a little more about Conspiracy Theories on the blog, or you can check it out on Battleshop or DriveThruRPG. Either way, enjoy!

I think if there's anyone on this board that deserves some comp credit just for being a fan, it's you.

Not that I can do anything about it. Directly.  :-\

What?  For whining about my budget and calling everyone a bastard all the time?  :P

Bah, I pad my post count.  ;D

And try to help some folks.  And other things.  If I can't play, I might as well help those who do.

I don't recall finding anywhere in the demo agent program stating that the players had to be...uhm....willing. Just get yourself a mini-unit, kidnap a few players, and rack up those pdf rewards*.  ::)

*Laws may vary, but this is very illegal, do not try this.

*looks at budget* I'll be waiting a while too.

Hey, if you want to double-up and run two sessions a week, I'd be game.  ;D

Oh I was talking to Can Ray, he's got no one to play with up in Canada I believe, or at least Shadowrunwise in his particular part of Canada. Now if we could just build a teleportation device we could solve these geographical RPing issues. Of course we'd have to keep it quiet or the governments would try to shut it down for safety reason or try to take it for use on "real" problems.

Out of curiosity are you on the old HOE listserv Can Ray?

Sure guys, wait until the day when I've promised myself to truly focus on work and not get distracted to release the book I've been waiting a while for...

Ah, they won't notice if I just close the office door... right?
