A company man hires the runners to steal a local companys research data. The company "NABER - New age bio enginering" resides in Snohomish and does a lot if research into biology and agriculture. Mr Johnson is from Ares and has orders to pave the way for a purchase of NABER. He offers the runners 5000 and 10% of the research's value.

NABER has employed a team of shadowrunners of their own to protect their recent findings, there is a decker, a rigger, a mage and 2 steet samurais.

The missing judge

One day when the players are sitting at their favorite barrens soycaf place a full scale gang war breakout right in the street where they are sitting. If one of the runners has a gang contact he or she can tell the runner that someone has kidnapped the judge, if no runner has such a contact perceptions checks will reveal that the gangs are accusing each other of the crime.

The judge is a powerful mage who acts as a broker between the gangs to avoid conflicts that could escalate to a war.

Shadowrun combat manager

I have released an app on google play for shadowrun 4th and 5th edition which handles the, at times, very complex initiative round for gamemasters. I hope it will help others as it is helping me manage the endless lists of combatens who are constantly changing positions in the list due to modifiers added during combat.

The app will also be released on ios as soon as i have ironed out all the bugs which may exist.

I have build the app using phonegap and jquery mobile, which has been a very fustrating process due to a number of challenges with the integration to the os. But it allows be to have one code base while publishing for multiple platforms.

the app can be downloaded here

It should be quite strait forward to use, but changing the version is done by clicking the menu button and selecting settings. Some users had difficulties finding this so I thought i would mention it.

My current development road map is:

  1. Save list between uses
  2. Use number fields for initiative and phases
  3. Combat actions - effect on initiative
  4. Profiles
  5. Like the suggestion for matrix/magic have to see what I can do here.

So far I am on version 1.4, with most bugs fixed and 2 items on my road map done. Next up is combat actions for fifth edition.
