Spinrad and his new AAA megacorporation, SpinGlobal, are set up to be one of the most exciting new members of the Big 10 in a long time... especially for shadowrunners. Opti joins us today to talk about Spinrad, Global Sandstorm, and the middle east of the Sixth World. 

Chit-Chat / Catching Up

  • BOBBY - I like numbers

News / Stuff

  • Final episode... ?... yes, it is.
  • Cold Opens Mashup.

Q&A

  • Darrek Workman - How does the ritual to become a coimeadai in the court of shadows affect the awakened? Can a coimeadai be awakened? The book isn't clear. In shadowrun cannon through the years there has been an effort to keep magic magical and the matrix technological, hence technomancers cannot also be awakened. It's always been one or the other allowing the player characters to have different roles in a group. CFD has broken from this principle and I was wondering if the court of shadows did too.
  • Ross D’Souza - If you had to have a single piece of 'ware (cyber- or bio-), what would you have? (I'd probably go for cybereyes - mine are shoddy and the thought of having AR excites me

Main Topic - Spinrad

The story of NeoNET is one of a megacorporation adapting, changing, reinventing, and winning at all costs. We sit down with Booke Chang to tell the story of this corporate pheonix which has risen from the ashes and fallen for, perhaps, the last time. 

Chit-Chat / Catching Up

  • BOBBY - Dentist

News / Stuff

  • The podcast is still ending.

Q&A

  • Martin Ackerton - Hi Bobby and Cassie. I am a somewhat new GM. My group is really getting into Shadowrun, but we've avoided having a matrix character in the group. The players are either uninterested or daunted by the rules. One of my players wants to do the decking, but is afraid that they are going to steal the spotlight too much. How can include a matrix character in their runs without bringing the action to a halt for everyone else and causing them to resent the matrix?
  • Paul McBride - What do you think about having a decker and a technomancer on the same team? Can they work well without overlapping too much? If so, how do they compliment each other?

Main Topic - NeoNET In Memoriam

Historically, Riggers in Shadowrun have not been given a lot of attention. For that reason, it can be a really difficult archetype to play effectively. Damian Szydlo comes on this episode to tell you the good, the bad, and how to do your best as a Rigger in Shadowrun 5th Edition.

News / Stuff

  • The podcast is ending...

Q&A

  • Ross D'Souza- Some of my players have really high edge and never have much use of them.  I'm wondering about introducing other uses of them to give them more options, any ideas?  An idea I thought about was a minor "plot point" like use similar to SR Anarchy (or Fate's Fate points).
  • alightgrift- as life continues to imitate art, in the case of the Shadowrun setting and our own, has it changed the way you think about or interact with the game?

Main Topic - Riggers

Q&A

  • Mark Perez- I can't seem to get my head around the Shadowrun universe. every time I gm it, I sell it as a bleak and dismal place. am I doing it right or am I going too dark?
  • Ross D’Souza- If trid phantasm was real, would you use that in a tabletop RPG to make sure the players saw the same thing? (Personally, I'd go for no, as ttRPGs have a magic that is people's individual imaginations)

Main Topic - The Villiers Family
