I'm a semi-active player and GM for a number of different systems. My current games focus more on the latest edition of Shadowrun, but my favorite games are Dungeons and Dragons games. I've been running and playing games (mostly running) for the last fifteen years and have a solid grasp of the rules of the systems I run right now.

comment Shooting with drones
I do apologize that the rules for 5th edition aren't organized as well as they should be. The page that lists combat with drones is no where near the actual rigging rules, like they should be. I'll edit my answer.

comment Can a single device be both a master and a slave?
It's not so much that the marks travel downwards. It's the fact that, as a user that's put three marks on the cyberdeck that's protecting a PAN, you now have full authorization on that device to do with it what you will. You'll still have to make matrix hacking tests to mess with it, but it recognizes you as a user. Break the connection with the master and they can't follow you to your link. But while your link is on the deck, you and the link and all your devices are 'trusting' the authority of the deck and it's users, whoever they might 'appear' to be.

This is why a PAN can be a double edged sword. The master or node of a network holds all of the security of a system now. Mark the head and you get access to everything it holds. It's why the decker is now the protection for gear.

comment Why does the Drone Rigger Archetype Character in the Rulebook not have a RCC?
To your first question, if you want the benefit of jumping into a drone, you need a control rig. Normally, you can command drones all day long without a control rig. But the rig allows you to Cold/Hot jump into a drone. To your second question, you have two options. RCCs are made so that you can scramble and protect them well enough, so you don't need to worry too much about them. But, to increase the protection, you can slave your RCC to the decker's PAN. But, I would just take the needed programs to scramble and get a lot of ECM and ECCM with electronic warfare.
