Retro RPG: Shadowrun 1st Edition
Shadowrun is a science fantasy tabletop role-playing game set in a near-future fictional universe in which cybernetics, magic and fantasy creatures co-exist. It combines genres of cyberpunk, urban fantasy and crime, with occasional elements of conspiracy, horror and detective fiction.
The title is taken from the game's main premise β that industrial espionage runs rampant in a near-future setting. A shadowrun β a successful data theft or physical break-in at a rival corporation or organization β is one of the main tools employed by both corporate rivals and underworld figures. Deckers (futuristic hackers) who can tap into an immersive, three-dimensional cyberspace are opposed by rival deckers and lethal, potentially brain-destroying artificial intelligences called "Intrusion Countermeasures Electronics" β "ICE" for short β who are protected by street fighters and/or mercenaries, often with cyborg implants (called cyberware), magicians, and other exotic figures, on such missions as they seek access, physical or remote, to the power structures of rival groups. Magic has also returned to the world after a series of dystopian plagues; dragons who can take human form have returned as well, and are commonly found in high positions of corporate power.
We've got a few characters based on the subject of yesterdays review of, Star Wars Weekly 49: The Keeper's World Parts 6 + 7. Today we've added Earth, Fire, Rain & Wind to the Star Wars D/6 Characters Section of the Site.
I've based their powers on what we saw in the comic, but if anyone has a better version of their abilities, then please let me know.
Welcome to this episode of RPGGamer Top 5s, and this time we're going to list the top RPG's on the MSX.
The MSX was a standardized home computer architecture, announced by Microsoft in June 1983. It was conceived and marketed by Kazuhiko Nishi, the then vice-president at Microsoft Japan and director at the ASCII Corporation. Nishi conceived the project as an attempt to create unified standards among various home computing system manufacturers of the period.
