I've been reading Shadowrun novels off and on for nearly as long as the game has been published, and now we are approaching the 2nd anniversary of the event that was supposed to be the birth of the 6th age. Well, it hasn't happened... but what if it had?
This is an interest check to see if anyone would be interested in a D20 game occurring now, at the dawn of the Awakening. The preconditions needed for Shadowrun haven't quite arrived yet, but glimmers exist that indicate we're almost there techwise. True cybernetics/biotech does not exist yet, except possibly in the blackest of black clinics. Magic is just beginning to be understood, but rumors of ancient religions/cults suddenly having power abound. Riggers don't plug into their machines yet, and hackers still use monitors and keyboards, maybe VR gear to do their magic, but systems are not designed with imersive interfaces in mind. And the world is still coming to grip with the births of elves and dwarves, as well as the goblinization of teens and adults into orcs and trolls. The international laws enabling the birth of the mega-corps have not been written yet, but many corporations are working towards that goal.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention... DRAGONS ARE OUT THERE!!!
Who would be interested in such a setting?
