comment What is the “upcoming source book” mentioned in Shadowrun 4 FAQ?
Given that SR5 is due this year, it looks like SR 4 has reached the end of the road, and that promised supplement won't see the light of day, at least for SR 4.

comment How should GM deal with 'standing orders'?
+1 for pointing out that standing orders can have negative as well as positive effects. Real-world example: armies understand that you can be focused on speed or on security, and that any movement technique is either a middle-ground compromise or a conscious decision to favor one over the other. Moving faster will wear out your body faster; moving with heightened security will wear out your mind faster.
