comment Is is unrealistic not to bring a decker / hacker to shadow runs?
Just as a note: SR4 and (even more so) SR5 try to make Deckers (and Riggers, to some extend) more integrated into the group: They have things to do, even when they are physically with the group. Pre-SR4 there was always a strong "Matrix / other stuff" separation.

comment Vehicle tests, riggers and hotsimming
As far as I see Hot-Sim (vs. Cold-Sim) just gives you an additional D6 initiative plus +1 dice pool modifier on Vehicle tests (and all other Matrix tests). The big bonus you get is probably the -1 threshold on Vehicle tests for each level of your control rig. (Not writing an answer, as I have no experience playing/GMing riggers).

comment How do mystic adepts gain power points in Shadowrun 5?
As far as I know the 2 Karma/Power Point will be Errata'ed to 5 (together with a few other minor changes).

comment Shadowrun history across the editions
If I remember correctly they have dropped the official Earthdawn/Shadowrun connection sometime in the late 3rd edition timeframe. They've didn't retcon anything major, but simply didn't push it any further.

comment What character creation tools & guides are available for Shadowrun 5e?
@JeorMattan: that's true, but from experience, the chances are low: a one-man-project with the original author effectively gone is really hard for another developer to take over. And starting anew is just more fun, so many people (including me) will do that (which, of course, will take longer to produce a useable result).

Unfortunately the Chummer author stopped the progress of porting it to SR5: forums.dumpshock.com/…
