And we get to see more about Polaris, who I believe we already met on the ZO run in Corporate Intrigue.

Haven't gotten a chance to sit down and read all of it, but I like it. Not *terribly* useful at the moment, since I'm running SRM Season 2, but it makes me want to send people up to space for a run or two between Missions.

I knew by the end of the fiction bit where Polaris saves Orbital DK, is shown to have a secret, and is looking for her father. All it took was a quick lookup in CI to confirm. The shadowtalk later talking about the fact that runners could sneak on to ZO was just icing on the cake.

What does it cover, specifically? Is it well organized? Does it contain any useful information? Is it well written, or is it full of grammatical errors and wasted words? What did you think of it?

It gives a good overview of several areas that might draw runners to work in the oceans, the desert, the tundra, and outer space. If you're going to be doing a game that treads into one of these areas, then the info is invaluable. If you're sticking to Seattle, then not so much. There are grammatical errors, some of them very pronounced, that ought to have been caught if it had gone past an editor at all, but most of the time it isn't too bad.

I enjoyed the read, and I could see the ocean section being useful for any game set in Hong Kong, Neo-Tokyo, Seattle, or LA. The Desert section dovetails nicely with the recent info on Vegas. The tundra info actually gives ideas for runs in Antarctica! The only section I'm not sure if I'll ever see in use is the space section, but who knows, with the space elevator coming online, there's more potential than ever for deep space runs.

Good luck with that. Bad thing about a date with her, her idea of ditching you is hitting "open" on the airlock.

Better than my last ex.  The pain won't last as long.

CanRay, if it is still burning, you really should have gone to the clinic by now.

I can handle physical pain.  It wasn't that what happened.
