To me it felt like there was a reevaluation of how strong CFD was as a metaphor, or how much fans liked it, and they decided to wind it down as reasonably quickly as they could.  There was quite a bit of fluff about it in Chrome Flesh, and given that they sadly don't publish adventures anymore - except for Missions and con one offs -- so there isn't a ton else to do about it.

I do have a rant brewing about how most of the cool adventure material shows up in shadow talk, but that is for another time.

I always enjoy the banter between the various Jackpointers.  Some of it can be quite entertaining.

Since the metaplot of CFD is currently over, anyone know what the fate of FastJack is?  Will we ever see FastJack on Jackpoint ever again?

is the current metaplot of CFD over? I don't think that is the case...

I don't recall where I read it, but I was under the impression that the CFD plot was being relegated to the back burner.

Well, there's no cure, but some of the headcases are going to Mars. Boston is still Bug City 2.0, but NeoNET is officially falling. There was probably supposed to be other stuff that tied in with the Shadowrun Chronicles game, but since that failed horribly, they waited forever and now the whole plot's stale. Maybe they'll pick it back up again, but I doubt it.

Wait, when'd they go to Mars? Last I heard it was the Orbitals... though it wouldn't be beyond me to miss something serious.

They took over Evo's Gagarin Base on Mars, and basically sent out a call for others to join them.

For the record I plan to do an update of the OP... But I'm waiting for the print version of Dark Terrors, as it's the kind of book I enjoy more in good ole paper format ^^

Just an observation and a quick question. The front page has the Seattle Special Election as an ongoing plot. The Complete Trog page 91 says that Corinne Potter won the runoff after the special election. Does that end this as an ongoing plot or will there be more to it later on?

The front page gets updated once every 2-38 months.

Sorry, I'm a bit late on my reading... I will update the list ASAP.
