Have you ever heard of metabetting? In Vegas, you can bet on how other people will bet. Vegas is crazy...
They've been doing it in Wall Street for years.
No, when Vegas does it, its called gambling. When Wall Street does it, its called capitalism.

Crowley was awesome. Not as awesome as Castiel, but still.

You start talking about Crossroads demons, I think Scratch.

A movie so Shadowrun it *hurts*, but nary a whiff of burglary or cyberntics to be found.

But oh, such a deal you can make...

Ol' Scratch is one of the many nicknames for the Devil.  And Robert Johnson, according to legend, had made the same deal for the Blues...  And always feared a Black Dog chasing him ever since.  This becomes even more suspicious when it took him three days to die, of causes unknown.

Any Faustian Deal works with a dark magical world.  Shadowrun is just one.  Deadlands:  Noir has a Crossroads Demon in the main rulebook statted out!

No need to stat out a SR one. Just make it a lesser Horror that managed to slip through.

Free Shadowspirit also works fine.  The Deals always end in tears.

Yeah.

The Muses would work just fine, really. Lots of inspiration, and they drive you to self-destruction.

Looks like Echo Chernik did the cover for Storm Front (her current cover photo on FB)... :)

Any info on these Amazon entries?

Malevolent End(s) 1: Hunt the Black Lodge
Malevolent End(s) 2: The Scalpel's Edge
Malevolent End(s) 3: The Cassandra Variable

Appears to be another set of modules, this time concerning the Black Lodge. It's not clear whether the series title has an 's' at the end or not.

Amazon also lists:
Ballots of Bullets
