Shadowrun Campaign News for 2020 with a New Seattle Scream Prop (#64)

9 January, 2020

Always buildingMy monthly Saturday learn to play / open campaign game of Shadowrun is back on track (at Tyche’s Games on every first Saturday each month, come and join in) and has successfully moved to the Sixth World Edition of Shadowrun.  To support that ongoing campaign, we have a new Seattle Scream (#64), the warehouse construction was the location of the run this time (which will lead into a new item next issue).

Still pondering the Sixth World edition, almost ready to add a few house rules to help our play experience work better.  But overall, I like what the new edition was aiming for even if it falls short in a few cases/

What with the holidays and all Shadowrun gaming (and gaming in general) in our local group has been slow.  Things are getting going again and I hope to have a new Seaatle Scream for you next month.

Shadowrun Campaign News with New Seattle Scream Prop (#63)

4 December, 2019

Ice skating in Seattle?My monthly Saturday learn to play / open campaign game of Shadowrun is back on track (at Tyche’s Games on every first Saturday each month, come and join in)and has successfully moved to the Sixth World Edition of Shadowrun.  To support that ongoing campaign, we have a new Seattle Scream (#63), the floating ice rink featured in the last adventure I ran.

Overall, liking the Sixth World edition, getting used to it and thinking about some small house rule tweaks to make it fit our play style better.

Other than that  Shadowrun gaming in our local group has been slow, but you can read about PinkCat’s latest adventure in NorCal here.  Hopefully once the holidays are done, we will get some more Shadowrun action going.

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

2 November, 2019

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.

Episode Forty Four: Two for One

Like this but not thisGuest Starring: Clawz, DoubleUp, Gimmick, and Tora.

The gang is asked to help out two of the students, twin ocelots as it happens, who have become estranged and bring them back together.  So, lots of comedic failed attempts to get the two back together always backfiring terribly . . . until at the end of the episode the twins bump into each other in the cafeteria line and bones over all the stupid tricks people have been trying to pull on them.  The team collapses exhausted and all’s well that ends well or something.

What really happened:

Shadowrun Campaign Update with New Seattle Scream Prop (#62)

28 September, 2019

ElvisFor various reasons Shadowrun gaming in our local groups has been slow for the last few months.  The monthly games at Tyche’s Games (every first Saturday every month, come and join) have been interrupted by Conventions (GenCon and Dragon*Con) and University of Georgia football games but we are back on track for October!  In support of that we have a new Seattle Scream (#62).

The Saturday game will be moving to the Sixth World Edition of Shadowrun which hopefully we will be seeing actual hard copies of in October.  Our other GMs are still debating if they want to adopt the new rules or stay with 5th Edition.  I suspect that eventually we will all shift over but it will take some time.

I have also built my first Shadowrun, 6WE, character: Elvis, a knight-errant of the Church of Elvis, traveling the highways and byways of North America bringing the good news and good music.

Our NorCal campaign just had a game this week and hopefully I will have a game report up soon.
