and here I just want to be able to complete Chicago for my group. Sadly most of season 8 still isnít up for sale. No idea how to get the rest of it or any of season 9.

Have you considered becoming an Agent?

I know that's how my local GM got access to the rest of Season 8 & all of Season 9.

I just run a game for friends on sundays. If thats enough to be an agent Iíd do it. But it doesnít sound like a agent to me. Though I havenít really looked into it.

the only requirement to stay an active agent these days is to run and report at least one public event per year ... if you don't mind the emails always asking for convention support and what not the benefits far out weigh the requirements

...I thought it was commiting to GMing a minimum of four missions per year in a local sponsored Missions group.  Going to cons can get expensive if travel and accommodations are involved.

Right now, as Banshee said, it's 1 Open Event, not 4 Missions. I run custom Open Events because my timeslots used to make running Missions tough. Usually they're based on missions, sometimes they're completely custom.
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

it got reduced, and "Open Public Event" does not have to be cons, open event is defined as any SR event that is open to the general public to play and not restricted to private clubs/places. So it can be a homebrew game ran at the local library or a Mission game ran at a con or anything inbetween.

the convention support really varies depending on the convention, the big cons (Origins and Gencon) can easily get your accommodations covered but not travel, some small cons cover hotel

The only thing is that as agent you get the occasional mail which includes 'hey we still need people for gencon all!' and then as European I'm all 'okay good luck there!'.

Will there be copies of a "Shadowrun 6 Character Creation Worksheet" (one page, both sides) available at the Missions Command Table at GenCon?

It would be very friendly if these could be handed out free to all of the players, in addition to those participating in one of the 2 hour intro sessions.

I believe I heard somewhere that the first season of missions will be dual-statted. (I believe in the 6th edition release discussion from the Arcology Podcast)

Also, there are conversion rules (at least there were for when they updated from 4th to 5th edition).  It depends on how heavily your character has been built/uses the supplements on how much of an impact this actually has.  I believe my Weapon Spec only has one piece of cyberware from a supplement, and a couple of guns.  Very easy to convert over.  My wife's Spec Ops is almost entirely from the Core book.

I heard the same thing on the podcast.

I also think it depends a lot (converting characters) on how much they used from the splat books.  My current character, a Weapons Expert with a penchant for sniper rifles, is almost entirely out of the core book (just Move-By-Wire from CF, I believe, and a few armor augments from other books).  Nothing major.

I'm also sitting on about 50+ unspent karma and over 220k in cash, and a bit unwilling to level them up.  The more I want stuff from splat books, the bigger pain it will be to convert them.

So either they let Neo-Tokyo just be 5E, or they say something to the effect of, "Take your accumulated karma, cash, street cred, notoriety, and public awareness... and rebuild the character.  Keep the theme, but otherwise do what you will."

While this seemed like a decent idea, the signing up process I can't get past. Wants me to link a bunch of documents I wrote, I don't write out my adventures or put them in documents. they are outlines at best. a pity I really would like to finish season 8 with this group, the story seems to be coming together at the end pretty well.
