There was that Dwarf from the 'Secrets of Power' Trilogy. The utter mercenary that changed sides at the end because his pay day died and he got hired by Sam and Co. Not sure if he lived or his name as don't have novels at work.

Yeah, I think that's him. Did he get whacked at a point?

I think so, but to be honest, can't remember...guess it's time to crack into them again. :)

After looking through "never trust an elf" Cog told Necko that he left town, but the group assumes he got killed along with the twin street sam's.

Incidently, there are a few Dwarves doing Things in Dirty Tricks.

First, you have to come across as simultaneous loveable AND pitiable(as a Canadian, this is a natural talent
for CanRay).
Second, you have to have no shame.
Third, you need to have a product that can naturally be slid into any discussion.

Sort of like how, I can easily point out that you should get Safehouses for what to do AFTER the elections are over
if your candidate lost....

You just put in a hyperlink.

I can feel the love.  No, really, I can.

Wait, wait, wait...

No, that's heartburn.

Actually, with the talk of succession going on, and the possibility of a Second US Civil War, Safehouses might be useful for people of all types!  Might I suggest the off-the-grid, rural territory type where you can see potential threats from miles away?

I kinda like dwarves in SR, especially for mages or hackers.
The willpower boost makes 'em naturally better at resisting drain or biofeedback and body boost means more armor and more boxes to soak.
But they do lack the attractiveness of "handsome, agile elf" or "tough ork brute". Dwarves are just... short and kind of bland.

It isn't that they left the dwarves out on purpose, but with the troll in the picture, they were just too short to be in frame.

A good number of the characters I've played thru all the editions have been dwarves.
Come to think of it, I'm not sure I've ever played an elf........ Humans, Trolls, Orcs, Hobgobilns, Minotaurs sure; but no, not an elf.... Maybe I'll make that my next missions character.

And I don't really see a problem here.
There are tons of shadow posters that we don't know the race of, pick one and write them up as a dwarf. So what if there isn't that many in the big political arena. These books are "Street Legends" not "Congressional Legends". They needed to concentrate more on runners or people that are on the level of runners(fixers and such). Having the stats for Lofwyr is kinda cool, but it's not like anyone will ever be able to use them...... These books should be a resource for helping expand the personalities of different locals. They need to be full of people players can regularly interact with or even use as contacts. With the stats added to take ambiguity out of what they could actually do for the runners. (the GM can always tweak any of the numbers they want)
