Review – A Fistful of Credsticks

3 June, 2012

A Fistful of Credsticks is an adventure that will please some style of players and not others, as it more or less requires the Shadowrunners involved to be seen publically, even though they are not doing anything illegal as they are.  But it is fun adventure with lots of twists and the chance to meet some of the media stars of the Shadowrun world.

A Fistful of Credsticks: A Horizon Adventure for Shadowrun written by Adam Large and published by Catalyst Game Labs.  It is a PDF organized in the usual style of Shadowrun adventures and well illustrated.

A Fistful of Credsticks is the first part of a three-part arc that reveals secrets, a few of them, of the Horizon Corporation.  The characters are sucked into the Hollywood whirl and given the chance to hobnob with the rich and famous, and hopefully make some money in the process.  Unfortunately, things will not go smoothly as basic jobs get messy and an experimental program starts to make life extra dangerous for the runners.

The structure is solid though the movement from mission to mission is a little linear and the GM should be ready to adapt on the fly if your players tend to be resistant to the obvious buy in.
