I um.... I dont want to spoil anything (I also can't seem to figure out the format for spoilers on here ).....


but I think they just put the T'skrang (a main playable race from Earthdawn) back into the Shadowrun universe.

I know the connection isn't considered official anymore and I haven't played Earthdawn. But the descriptions match to well and the history makes sense. Kinda.

Basically says a great dragon took their eggs into a metaplane and raised them there. They have a whole society there and talk about the "Great Return" to Earth.

It's also a Dinosaur metaplane so there is another interpretation. But they are river faring and artistic lizard people.

The T'skrang have been in the Shadowrun world for a long time.  There have been references in Shadowrun to all the Earthdawn races since, well, whenever Earthdawn came out. 

For what it's worth, Simon Andrews is a Fixer in Missions and is clearly a T'skrang.  He's been around since 4rth edition.  https://www.worldanvil.com/hero/166edcad-f6fd-48a3-a193-11142377b889

*shrug*  Not sure what the actual details on the IP split will let CGL state explicitly or just hint around at.

Yes, they're meant to be a way for Cliff to bring in T'skrang without bringing in T'skrang, which are a FASA property.

Ah full on writer confirmation. Very nice. Thank you Omae.

I only got into Shadowrun lore a few years ago and am not overly familiar with all the older stuff. I know less about Earthdawn but loves the connection between the two.. I knew enough that Simon Andrews kinda tilted my head but he was also stated to be a changeling. Which at the time seemed kind to be more random traits. I figured he was just an homage and not an actual member.

Still I very much enjoy them being here as I like to consider most Earthdawn stuff real in my headcanon.

I've always presumed Simon Andrews is called a changeling because they can't use the word T'skrang.

Officially he is SURGEd, if I recall correctly.  (also pretty sure that he dies at the end of the Chicago missions, which is a shame because he was a great NPC)

Officially Simon is still in 6th edition Missions.  The exact endings of the Chicago arc vary from game to game depending on how the last couple Missions shake out.

Late to the party I know...

I'd like to input Tandorans onto my excel generator, but not sure where to place them with regards to Adjustment points and I'm not sure it's clear?!?  I was going to put them in the same category as elves as that seems to work but was wondering if there was a more official view?!?

Thanks
