Shadowrun General > General Discussion

DarkLloyd's Thread of Shadowrun themed stuff

(1/165) > >>

I keep finding video's and articles of things that remind me of Shadowrun. So instead of making a new thread for each one, and cluttering up the place, I'm gonna dump them here for all of you.

EDIT: I'm collecting the links posted here and around this forum in one spot. Each link will have the poster's name attached to it, if it has no name it was me. If you want to read the comment about the links or you wanna comment about a link look thru these pages. I'll still post the link first in the comment and then come collect then again every week/month or whatever.

If you want to leave a link here feel free. Also feel free to discuss them. Thank You.

EDIT: had to split this thread, also check the next comment down please.
