As per my previous post I have tried Savage worlds with the lore of shadowrun...

it was a breeze of fresh air.

Character generation took 30min

Mass combat was easy. ( Food fight was actually fun !!)

I could call Game Master decisions on the fly.

I loved it and so did my gaming group  :)


...Do not get me wrong, I love the shadowrun world and setting and will continue to buy the 6 ed books for the backround information, the fluff and stories

But I do not think I'll ever use shadowrun rules again...

Game mastering was fun and did not feel like work

Thoughts ?

How do you feel about crunchy  detailled rules vs. ease of play scale ?

Hehe, that's the experience 6e was designed to be.
RPG mechanics exist to give structure and consistency to the game world, true, but at the end of the day, youíre fighting dragons with algebra and random number generators.

The mechanics in themselves form a significant part of Shadowrun to me, because they represent specific setting parts, so I can handle a more streamlined edition, but the very flow of a lot of mechanics would make it hard for me to handle in a different system.

Are you just dropping the lore in, or following a specific fan-build of the rules (aka, Savage World by WrathofZombie, etc.)?

Just dropping the lore in.  ;)  We just did a quick one shot ( which would have taken lots of prep time in 5th) and played food fight... Now that my gaming gruop is okay with the change I'll convert the necessary basics...

I kind of like the crunch myself, but itís all good. ;)

Iím interested to see how the new version of Interface Zero turns out...always figured that would be a solid setting for an SR game powered by SW.

Ran some Savage IZ and found it worthy successor to an old CP 2020 game I ran.  Have high hopes for Cyberpunk Red.

"What's the right edition to play Shadowrun in?"  "The one your group runs with."

That includes using other systems, and Savage Worlds is a wonderful system and the Pinnacle Entertainment Group folks are a bunch of great dudes!
