Been reading through Corp book this week and making a list of hints and leads that have plagued SR for years without any answers.

Like why someone introduced Psycics as something special in Z-O?  Cause that one keeps me thinking someone didn't know the rules for magic when they were writing :D

If you're going to list all the unanswered leads from past source books you'll need a LOT of paper. I think every book from first edition on has several leads and hints that were never fulfilled in an official or fictional sense.

Don't forget that many times the runners contradicted themselves with differing theories.

Me, I'd like to learn more about that Pendragon guy. Seriously? He just disappears back in the æther after the Queen takes out the Lord Protectoriat? And what about the sword? Did Laughing Man get it?

What was he supposed to do, stick around and rule?  His job was done.  Batman doesn't stick around and actually run the Gotham City PD, does he?   ;D

Actually did something with that in a game I GMed about 15 yrs ago (no type). Created a bunch of Adept powers around that theme....Not a very succesful experiment ;D

The resolution of the Pendragon storyline happened behind the curtain so to speak, surprised such a long running plot was wrapped up so quick and quiet.
(Maybe I'm just nostalgic for our long nights running missions in England after London sourcebook came out.)

He does in Earth-2.

Seriously. Bruce Wayne became GPD Commissioner after Jim Gordon retired on Golden Age Earth-2. After he married Catwoman, of course. Made the dinner table awkward later on when their daughter became The Huntress and turned to vigilantism.

Power Girl is still the best thing to come out of that continuity, IMHO.

The whole thing with pendragon would have made a great adventure to publish.

and not small time either big like the harleyquin books.

That's what I was hoping for. And to have a sidequest in there somewhere that Pendragon went to Tír na nÓg to address the court there... ;)
