Shadowrunner versus some kind of paracritter? Drake, maybe?



Unfortunately, I can't figure out who did this piece.

In a traumatic twist of fate, a Troll girl discovers she's actually a Drake.

A bunch of Blade Runner concept arts and matte paintings. These never get old.

I posted on my website a gallery of concept arts from the video game Shadow Warrior 2, which has been released a few days ago.

Some of these characters would make great shadowrunners, trolls and even ghouls :)









Not to mention some very cool environments:





Absolutely awesome game by the way :)

Hoji made the first game for me. Wang is still amusing, but 2 feels less complete & holds up better as a 'killing stuff' game than a game with a story.

I like Infected characters that are less restricted to sewers and abandoned tenements, and also everyone else that lives near industrial zones of the sixth world to look a little peaky.

I agree that the story in SW2, while still interesting if you look at the big picture (awakened drug, ancient spirits from the shadow realm making in cahoots with the yakuza, twisted family dynamics, biotech experiments...) is not as well told as the story of SW1 was (in terms of delivery and pacing, not to mention the lack of beautiful 2D cutscenes). And while I do like Kamiko and find she's a good foil to Lo Wang, she's definitely not as compelling a companion as Hoji was.

What I think is missing in SW2 is some focus on Lo Wang himself: in SW1 the backstory was tied to Hoji, but the actual story told by the game was Lo Wang's, showcasing his growth as a character, from sarcastic thug to honourable (if reluctant) hero. I haven't reached the end yet, but SW2 never quite manages to tie Lo Wang as a character to the stuff going on around him, you know what I mean? Lo Wang is essentially there to advance Kamiko's story. I think they should have played his vendetta against Zilla more, that would have given him a stronger motivation as well as a story arc of his own. They're keeping that for Shadow Warrior 3, I guess...

But I believe the gameplay is generally better, although I miss the marks awarded for style at the end of battles, and the "randomized" environments, while they look pretty cool, do become redundant after 20+ hours.

An excellent choice! That was the inspiration for my first Shadowrun Missions character that I actually played; a 4th Edition Face/Rigger/Decker (much easier to do then, as rigging and decking both worked from a commlink).

Maisie is an elf wolf shaman that has existed in my head since I first started playing eighteen years ago. It wasn't until SR5 that I finally put her on paper and played her. She has been modified for my stories, but many of her qualities, skills, and personality are very similar. The biggest difference is that for the PC version of Maisie, that wasn't her original name or alias. She changed her name to that when she became a Lightbearer after the Harlequin's Back adventure (My GM at the time wove a LOT of ED references into his games). Maisie means "Child of Light".

She is now firmly and irrevocably in NPC territory.
