Review – Shadowrun: Street Legends

5 August, 2012

Street Legends is a collection of characters and fiction for the world of Shadowrun, useful for getting a feel for how the official Shadowrun world fits together with its power players.  While some of these characters may be able to be used in high powered game, very few are suitable for inclusion in anything less high flying.  Adventure hooks are implied in the character write up but some explicit adventure seed and scenario ideas would have made this book more useful.

Shadowrun: Street Legends is a sourcebook of some of the major players of the Shadowrun world ranging from hackers to dragons, fixers to deposed princes and corporate raiders interspaced with a fair amount of insetting fiction.  Each of the just over 30 characters gets a full history and discussion, with questions about their accuracy embedded, and a complete character write-ups.  While it is an impressive collection of intriguing characters, it is difficult to see how they would be easily integrated into anything but a campaign with power players.
