Why not produce Shadowrun stand ups, kinda like Paizos Pathfinder Pawn sets, take up less space easier to produce could even sell in sets like matrix icons or ares security personnel 😈

Actually they did once way back when in Shadowrun: DMZ Downtown Militarized Zone, a little stand alone 3-D game using modified 1st ed rules with little cardboard popouts that fit into a slotted base, which you can still find on Amazon or Ebay though usually a tad overpriced.

Worked fine then and could again.

If you need something in the meantime, Interface Zero does a set of printable trifold cutouts.

While not exactly SR, its close enough to fill in some gaps with.
Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

I just want to take a second, here, to talk about the "Magic Crayon Moment". Joss Wheedon talks about this when, on Buffy teh Vampire Slayer, he'd written a script that called for a tarot deck that was different from the norm. When teh day of shooting drew near, the prop department came up and handed him the deck and it was sitting there in his hand, plucked from his head and made real as if he'd drawn it with a magical crayon.

I'm looking at layout files and seeing stuff I worked on and, even after a few years and a dozen books, it just gives me lil' tingles to see this. All formatted pretty and art inserted and it ... it's just kind of amazing.

Off topic I know, but I wante dto put that out there.

(Also, a big thanks to Jason for not pulling my arm off and beating me to death with it when I misread my contract and gave him far too many words. That's a whole lot more work for him and a boo boo on my part. Luckily, there were plenty of jokes that could be cut without hurting the overall flow. But still!)

So, what's this about? Any guesses? :)

Probably to do with "secret project" mentioned earlier...

Isn't there like an 8th world mecha version called Shadowtech or something?

The problem I see is a matter of scale.

Either the BT side is staying out of the mechs or using something very early gen (Rigger 4 Warhammer?)

Otherwise most anything the runners use will just pretty much bounce off or do little more than scratch the paint job (1 pt damage) to a mech.
Course  maybe that will be the point, so the runners do the footwork and lure the mechs into a dragon's lair to let the two goliaths go at it. ;)

Edit: Waaaaaiiiit, is this a teaser that Rigger 6th edition is going to include mechs?!? ;)

Ok, maybe not...plus just imagine how many Mod Points would THAT have? :D

Sendaz: Ah, but did you have anyone sign the non-piñata agreement?

Wakshaani: Non-piñata agreement? What is ---AIIIEEEEEEE

Dinendae:  :o You know, that is not really going to fix anything?

Sendaz: Yes, but we feel better about it in any case. :)   Stick?

So Dunklezahn is coming back but has possessed a Warhammer type Mech?
If Tom Brady’s a Spike Baby, what does that make Brees and Rodgers?

Suddenly gives new meaning to the term Draconis Combine.

It's not a faction, it's a battle cry.

And would this mean Lofwyr might have a Gold Plated Atlas tucked away somewhere?

brrrrrrrrr.....

My initial thoughts were some form of crossover...but then as I read the post a little more, wondering if this isn't some initiative that will benefit both BT and SR...ie re-releasing the original FASA novels, graphic novels, etc?
