Q&A

  • Matthew Gilliland - As I understand it CFD was introduced to limit and draw back some of the excesses of 4th Edition, yet it also appears to be the meta plot. Can you explain what is actually going on with this? I know that it is part of the Boston Lock Down and that it is probably connected to a dragon that is also an E-Ghost. I also came across something that was describing a colony on Mars where the more sane ones were going to live. I don't know what do with it and leave it out of my games due to my lack of knowledge.
    Can you shed some light on this?
  • Soymage - For everyone in the discussion, what is the most under rated knowledge skill to use
  • Jason Gregory - I'm having some trouble with my runners and my runs I can't seen go get them to fallow my leads and thay just wants to fuck around
  • Dustin Hartrick - Hello! I run a d&d game full of totally new players. I am trying to gracefully transition the game into shadowrun without players feeling forced into number crunch rules hell. Any advice on how to get them introduced to the SR universe/ruleset without them totally rejecting it outright?
  • Thomas Miller - What would be a good way to deal with player character infection of HMHVV? Am I just missing a piece of a book that explains how that particular process works, and what the dangers are (feral or lucid, and the like)? Or are there no real draw backs aside from the standard, Human > Ghoul / Vampire / Nosferatu (Or whatever meta-type and their equivalents.)
  • Scott Flowers - Do you use house rule the crash rules and if so, how do you house rule them?
  • Eric Lesage - What house rule have you implemented that you find has had the most positive impact on your game? Although mechanical short cuts are usually a good thing in SR(ie. Modified alchemy rules) ot would be interesting if any houserules had a big impact on the tone of and lore created by the game.
  • Scott Sain - Round table question. Do you remember your first run in Shadowrun? If so, what was it? Also what's your most memorable run GMing or playing?
  • Soymage - what role do you generally not get the most in your teams? Matrix, Vehicles, Magic, Combat, Social, or Other?
  • Scott Sain - Ritual Magic… nobody seems to know a whole lot about it.

The city of Denver is one of the great settings of the Sixth World of Shadowrun. Filled with racism,  intrigue, and all the greatest grey-area choices that Shadowrun is best known for. Shadowrun freelancer RJ Thomas joins us to talk about Denver.

Q&A

  • CapturedinCaptivity - What do you like most about being a father? Also in SR5 do you ever want to have the dependent quality to mirror that?
  • Chris Vandergriff (Patron) - In regards to the episode with guest host Oz, the conversation brought up the point that "no plan survives contact with the enemy". When do you reward players for good legwork and planning, and when do you just change up things to purposefully screw their plans?

Main Topic - Denver

Seeing as how Shadowrun is a ROLEPLAYING game, we figured it was about time to discuss some social and philosophical issues surrounding roleplay and if it's possible to do it right or wrong. We are joined by Ozzkore of Join the Anarchy.

Q&A

  • Stephen Atkins -
    I live in a small town after living in big cities for most of my life.  We're lucky enough to have a real gaming store here where MTG and Warhammer are the biggest games.  The only two RPG's available in the store are Pathfinder and DnD 5e which is no surprise.  I've been a runner since 2nd ed but retired when 3rd came out.  A couple (or three) moves later I find my self here and wanted to start a local group.

    Since most people here have never even heard of shadow run I'm looking for a couple of good canned runs I can put a new group who have never played before.  Of course there is "Fast Food Fight" and I'll use that the first night but I'm a little lost on what to do next.  I really like the idea of using the Missions.  Would something like Splintered State be a good starting point?  Of course all of this is some what conditional on the type of players I can find and how many.

    Thank for the feed back.

  • Lazlo Zingo - I don't think you've answered this one... but there is so much content now. Time for a Q/A index for this and SixthWorldPodcast? :-)  Anyway, if a Mage is sustaining a spell and then goes astral can he continue to sustain the spell or does it go poof? Thank you in advance!
