Recruitment is Closed, but if you express interest, I'll set you on the second string bench so you'll have first crack at recruitment if the opportunity pops up.
OK, a few of us around here have been let down that a few Shadowrun games have fallen through before the game has gotten off the ground but I am hoping to rectify this. I have been jones'ing so hardcore for a game that I'm going to step up and GM one to get that monkey off my back.
So what is Shadowrun?
The shotgun answer is Cyberpunk meets Orks, Elves, and Dragons on Earth. The Game sets place roughly 60 to 70 years into our future where Magic returned to Earth in December 2012 and it mashes up with the prevalent super science of the period in the form of cybernetics, bionics, ubiquitous Internet/Matrix, and MegaCorporations.
In essence, Johnny Mnemonic
meets Lord of the Rings
The Player Characters are more or less part of the unrepresented masses that decided to become professional criminals. Deniable assets that can get places and do things without implicating their employer. They mainly chose this life because they are survivors, committing crimes to get by growing up or to feed the family because no other source of income is available. Some chose it because of the freedom of the shadowlife and controlling their own destinies compared to being a wage slave and kissing corporate ass day in and out. Still others are thrill seekers or altruistic Robin Hoods that try to right social injustices.

If you've seen or heard about Shadowrun but were curious or afraid to ask, This Quick-Start PDF
will introduce you to the Shadowrun World and even provides four archetypes that exemplify the game.
If your a veteran of 4E and feel like creating a character or using a pregenerated character from the Core Book to satisfy that urge, go ahead and do so! Just remember, that this is a one-shot at the moment and your at the local Stuffer Shack, NOT FIGHTING FOR YOUR LIFE IN THE RENRAKU ARCOLOGY.
I plan on starting as soon as I get 4 or 5 players, so here's to a good game!
Shoot, depending on interest and how it goes, we may continue with other adventures or even Denver! But that is ambition for further down the line.
