Shadowrun 2050 : Bottled Demon part 2

We continue with our Shadowrun via the Cortex system story arc. This is Bottled Demon part 2 of the adventure written by James D. Long for the 1st edition of the Shadowrun game.

Recently Margaret Weis Productions released the newest iteration of the Cortex rules in the Firefly RPG. We give some of those changes a test drive here.

The core of the game still uses the same simplified approaches of : Grifter, Mastermind, Thief, Hitter and Hacker as found in the Leverage RPG game by the same company.

The Players were: Richard, Jamas, Stephen and Kati.

Here is the entire session.

Players:Richard, Eldon and Stephen

Here is the complete session.

We return to the year 2050 and get our Shadowrun on using the Cortex system. It’s been a bit since our last delve into this setting, but I felt it time to dust it off and start anew. Another classic Shadowrun module is being put through the grinder that is our play group. Let’s see what the sausage tastes like, shall we?

Of Steam, Steel and Murder Season 3 - Strange Collector

Players: Jamas, Richard, Kemp and Stephen

Welcome back to another SSM game in season 3! We’re still using the FATE Accelerated rules without any modifications. We also have a new player joining us —-KEMP! Kemp joins us from our public forums which is a GREAT place to get in on a game if you are interested.

We continue Season 3 with another mystery being solved by the newly graduated squad of investigators.

NOT in the feed is the third part listed here, which is a discussion on how FAE worked for us.

NOTE: I mistakenly name ‘Chris’ instead of ‘Stephen’ as a player in the introduction to the second recording. Chris, sadly did not get to play in this session and Stephen certainly did!
