Are you a dwarf? There does seem to be a lack of major dwarven prime runners for some reason.
They're easy to overlook.

Well now there's one :)

Lockdown is out for people that didn't buy Chronicles.

Awesome!



Should I read Stolen Souls before I read Lockdown?

I did, but I don't think you need to.

Stolen Souls has rules to become a headcase and fluff around CFD research for failed cures. But you probably don't want to expose your PCs to becoming headcases. It will help give some context for understanding "normal" headcases, which Lockdown does include a bit of, but doesn't go into great detail on.

It looks like the Azzies got the Hatch Shell.  Bastards.

Very nice visualization of the skyline.  The book did a good job describing it, but seeing the view from the Harbor (haa-baa) helps to solidify what I had in mind.

Anyone have any more information on the Transys Graygul? The Knights of Rage decker has it and I can't find it anywhere else so I'm thinking it's exclusive to them. Stats in spoiler

I was pleasantly surprised by the new cyberdeck, Graygul, though I wonder why it was not listed in the back of the book or among the other new gadgets instead of being snuck in like that hiding in a stat box but with availability and price tag.

...

I also wished the Game information section provided more answers instead of heading to piece it all together through the fluff and short stories. Stats for Cereus but not Eilohann or Deus (if he has a real form anymore)?
Other than that it is a good book that rides the zombie horror wave
If Tom Brady’s a Spike Baby, what does that make Brees and Rodgers?

I doubt attributes for Deus or Eliohann will really become necessary. If they are, the GM should likely just make it up on the spot, as these are entities that are so far beyond most player characters that stats probably won't be very useful.

In other words, if players are trying to take down Eliohann and/or Deus, I hope they have their DocWagon Platinum contracts good and ready.

A deck with those stats, Angelone, should cost about 830,500¥. So if that's the cost in the book, it's a steal.

Heh, because the 40,000¥ difference makes such an impact at the 800,000¥ level? ;)
