Hola Omae, this is a 30 year shadowrun superfan saying goodbye.

I know my disappointment with 6e and Catalyst has bled over into my commentary on 6e in these forums and we are at a point where it's not constructive anymore.

So I am going to sign off these boards in a couple of days once I get my table's play-by-post Jialong Datahaven content moved elsewhere.

In parting I want to give kudos to the folks on this board that have made my time here enjoyable and rewarding. In no special order (and no doubt omitting many) here goes:

Fastjack, thank you for moderating with fairness
Patrick Goodman, thank you for kickstarting the 5e errata process
Jayde Moon, thank you for taking over errata and doing your best
Stainless, thank you for the discussions and your dedication to Missions
Marcus Gideon, thanks for your engagement and commentary in these forums
Xenon, thanks for being such an awesome rules dissector
Hobbes, thanks for your knowledge of the details
Pixel01, thanks for being an early brother in arms in the errata team and your overall NICENESS
AJCarrington, thank you for being such an involved mod, helping peeps on the forums get their issues resolved

Sayonara Omae, may you always shoot straight and NEVER deal with a Dragon.

Marcus

Peace Brother, let me know where you settle. I totally understand your feelings on the subject, and I may end up following your example.
The board will be less without you.

Farewell where ever you fare.

I'm not taking this as a goodbye, because I do hope to see you back here someday (maybe 7E!).

Sometimes a break is needed.

Take care and hopefully see you down the road.

I sympathize with, and share, your sentiments man. I hope that what you re-invest the time into brings you fulfillment.

Editions come and go, but the game goes on. As one 30-year superfan to another, I hope this ain't the end. See you in 7E, if not before.

yeah, I had my "I'm done with Shadowrun forever" moment when 4e came around.

Forever didn't last as long as I thought it might.
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.

Later adzling. I understand how you feel. I will more than likely be hiding in the dark corners here, aka Old Edition sections. Later man!

Agreed. This looks like a 'training wheels' edition, that you can use to introduce someone to the setting, and then shift over to something like 5E or 4E. Like how D&D 5E is best used as training wheels for D&D 3.X.

...thinking of packing up my kit and riding into the sunset myself.  After what I have "officially" heard and seen concerning the details of 6E (and not just here, the  on Shadowcasters Net. or hre in discussions), I have no interest or desire to play in it.  I have said my peace on the matter, ruffled some feathers in the process (apologies), but stick with my convictions.

I have been involved with Shadowrun since it was first released 30 years ago, I feel this is a move in the wrong direction.

My two zlotys worth, take it or leave it.

Yeah, sad to see people this involved go.  Iíve been playing since 1e. Pretty damn consistently. 5e I stopped for most of 5e as I thought it was just a worse 4eA and so poorly edited it was hard to follow I got back in about a year ago. 6e manages to look even worse than 5e to me, not just bad editing and a few bad ideas but bad ideas at its core. After I wrap up this 5e campaign probably close to the end of the year Iíll switch to being a player for a bit, probably d&d depends on what the group and GM wants I guess. If after that campaign it looks like 6e fixed itself Iíll hop back in. Otherwise if I run shadowrun it will be a older edition or using a different rule set.
