PinkCat: Running in the Shade “Chiller” (A different sort of SR campaign report)

16 December, 2021

To understand what is going on here, you had best read the first PinkCat: Running in the Shade post, but short summary, this is a campaign report for our Shadowrun campaign set in NorCal through the filter of a cartoon made by one of the team members.
