comment How to convey the tone of Shadowrun
@ErikSchmidt Thanks for the quick reply! Yep, I mostly see and understand the role and importance of ersatz products in cyberpunk literature. I just thought that 1) Shadowrun is not our classic run-of-the-mill cyberpunk because of all the magic and magically rejuvenated nature in the setting, 2) soy has a nice "cheap" ring to it indeed, yet nowadays "lab grown" and "cultured" (as in "cultured beef") seems... more... likely? :)

@GMJoe Thanks! You're right - and I'll have to brush up on my physics, I'm afraid. :)

comment What is a crystalline creature?
You're welcome. :) First of all, I'd definitely wait for other answers (I suppose you'll get some), see what they say. As for the usefulness of shatter and the like: against creatures of the core, you seem to be right. However, you could always spice up your setting with crystalline objects and environments where such spells could provide serious tactical advantage: think cathedrals and courtrooms with huge windows, crystal caves, pre-deployed explosives in glass containers, chandeliers, bespectacled (love this word) opponents who go half-blind without their glasses on and so on... ;)

comment How to convey the tone of Shadowrun
@ErikSchmidt Excellent indeed, and useful. I'm not entirely sure about the very first point, though. Why is everything made of soy? Why not lab-grown meat? Why not real meat imported from the revived areas of the world? (Or am I "misremembering" the changes that hit the Earth, because of which quite large areas have been magically rejuvenated? Am I mixing things up with Earthdawn? Possibly. Correct me if I'm wrong, please.) The rest of the answer is really useful, a definite +1, nonetheless.
