comment How do I allow player agency in situations with predetermined outcomes?
+1 - This is absolutely the best way to go, especially as 7-sided describes it. You don't want to be falsely accused and convicted because of a lackluster defense--what a lousy background! If that's true, it shouldn't be played. No, it should be dramatic. If the players get too close to making it impossible to lose the defense, the judge should throw up procedural roadblocks--improper admission of evidence, prosecutor questioning the motives of witnesses, etc.; there can be personal relationships, police who don't like their integrity questioned, etc.. So many opportunities for resentment!

comment How does Shadowrun 4 differ from the previous editions - from an Actual Play viewpoint?
RMorrisey - If something requires TN4, and you're doing it entirely untrained, then it isn't "easy"! The point is in 3E the GM could rule that something requires TN3 when defaulting to an attribute if that's what seemed sensible. In 4E, you cannot require less than one success at TN5. I agree that there was a problem in 3E with a tiny bit of skill being worse than none; that was silly. In 4E, there is the opposite problem that all the skill you can take only makes you twice as good as having no skill whatsoever. 4E works well for tasks of moderate difficulty, 3E for very hard or easy.

comment What happens when a monster that has swallowed a PC is transformed via Slimy Transmutation?
@Wilerson - Slimy Transmutation is affecting who-knows-how-many creatures--all sorts of internal parasites, bacteria (if they exist in the game world), a gullet of little fish that have been swallowed, ticks attached to the outside, etc.. If you are a parasite or a meal, you effectively count as part of the creature.
