Armoured Glass v Ballistic Glass The authors of Shadowrun have in this case used two common names for bulletproof glass to denote two different qualities or grades of the glass. It is safe to assume that the Ballistic Glass in game is cheaper than the Armoured Glass, and that in this case the el cheap-o stuffer shack outlet would have the cheaper ...

As Peteris said in his answer, reading literature and watching media help get inspiration. In addition to that, Shadowrun is the mixing of two themes: Cyberpunk and fantasy. So any character you can think of in one, add a twist from the second. For example: A great singer from a nu-grunge band, grown on the mean streets of $YourHomeTown. But he's a ork, ...

Conceptually Good, Practically Meh Sometimes, you come across things you go, "This is XYZ, and I like X, I like Y, and I like Z- it should be perfect for me... but I'm not feeling it." You don't have to like all things, and just like having a flavor of food you don't like, you can't really force yourself to like it. That may be your situation here. The ...

If you don't really want to roleplay it, this is what contacts are for. One of the players "knows a guy". Someone they met in a dive bar once said he could hook them up with cram and handed him a card. The dealer will demand a transaction and/or straight up sell you the contact info for a fixer. BAM, done. But I think the idea of throwing new players into ...

The Edge attribute, as the core rulebook says on p.56, under Edge, does not change unless you permanently burn Edge, as detailed in Burning Edge, on p.57. The Edge attribute itself shows you how many Edge points a character may have at a time: it's the maximum, the upper limit of the spendable Edge points. A character who has an Edge (attribute) of 1 has a ...
