    Very nice start to what I hope is another excellent role play theater! I am assuming you are using the current edition of the ShadowRun rules. Are you using any of the supplement books also? Looking forward to the next episode!

      Thank you!

      We used Shadowrun 5th Edition rules for the game play. As for supplements, we players had access to all available books.

      Including: Run & Gun, Street Grimoire, Shadow Spells, Aetherology, Bullets & Bandages, Safehouses & The Assassins Primer

    Outstanding live play! One of the best I’ve heard. From the soundtrack to the story, to the players and their characters it was all an extremely enjoyable listen. Thanks for sharing it with us.

    When can we expect the next episode?

    Been waiting for this for awhile. Great start. Really liked the comm net effect during the “job” at the beginning. Look forward to the rest.

      Thank you! I wanted to do a prologue, but make it different than the prologues I’d done in the past. I’m glad you liked it.
