Should probably post this already. Hi all, I'm new(ish) to this board, been playing Shadowrun since 1989 and GMing games almost as long. However, about 8 years ago, I started having kids, buying a new house, friends moved away, etc. and gaming kind of fell apart. Then last summer a gaming store opened in my town and started me off again. I'd only sort of run SR4 before, but I've now been running a group at the store since September, though I'm finding I still miss out on nuances of some of the rules and this forum has already been greatly helpful!

Glad we could help out, Linkdeath!  Welcome to the boards, and welcome back to Shadowrun!

The best thing about kids?  You can game with them!  ;D

Heh, my oldest is just getting old enough that I'm starting to suck her in! Shadowrun might be a bit dark and obviously violent, however...

Gotta prepare them for life anyhow...

Sorry, I get a bit dark myself.  Which is why I throw so much (sometimes possibly too much) humor into my works.

Well, not to mention that dystopian cyberpunk doesn't lend itself to the recruitment of 8 year old girls, really. I'm trying, but I'm having to start out with fantasy.

Have all the megacorps be amusement parks?
Disney, Sixflags and similar companies have taken over the world's economy.
You are hired by an employer disguised with a Goofy outfit to acquire a new candy floss formula from Disney Corp. and alter the original formula to taste like earwax.

That might actually work in real Shadowrun too.

I don't know...  There are ShadowBronies, and /dev/grrl.

I touched on San Diego ComicCon in Safehouses, which got referenced by TV Tropes!  ;D

And my group went on a Shadowrun against "The Magic Kingdom", and had the audacity to be surprised when the lawn got up and started beating the house they were in.

If your team can be surprised by anything you throw at them then they obviously don't hang around here!
"When in doubt, C4" - Mythbusters. As true in 2070 as when it was first spoken.

"You're wearing WHAT?" - Group reaction when our street sam walked into a meet wearing light military armour.

Actually, I think what got them the most was P2.0.

"So there will be a 10% bonus for good footage of the job..."  "Wait wait wait.  We're going on a Shadowrun.  SHADOWrun.  As in dark, BlackOps."  "Yes, exactly!  It's great for ratings on the 'trid!  Are any of you geared to record simsense, because I can almost double your individual pay for the raw footage from that."  "...  ...  ...  What urine-soaked hellhole have we found ourselves in?"

Hello!

Enjoy the forums, ask questions, avoid breaking the ToS, and don't worry about CanRay: he's mostly harmless. ;)
