Hey guys. I'm starting up a 2nd edition Shadowrun game on the Wifom forum. There's several people on here who I enjoy roleplaying with. So I thought I'd let you guys know. It'd be cool to see you there, though if you'd rather not make a new account etc just for one game I understand.

Linkah!

For those of you who aren't familiar with Shadowrun, here's a copy/paste of my intro post.

Magic and mythological beings returned to the world in 2011. Additionally, some humans "Goblinize" into orks and trolls, while human children begin to be born as elves, dwarves and even more exotic creatures. In Shadowrun megacorporations control the lives of not only their employees, but command entire armies (the 10 biggest corporations in the world have extraterritoriality, much like an embassy has now). Technology is highly advanced and cyberware and bioware (cybernetically enhanced body parts or augmented parts grown in a vat then implanted in place of natural organs) are common. The computer crash of 2029 and various conflicts and plagues have reshaped the political and financial landscape of the world. Now when conflicts arise the corporations, governments, even wealthy individuals, and organized crime subcontract their dirty work to specialists, those who then perform "shadowruns" or missions undertaken by deniable assets without identities or those that wish to remain unknown. The most skilled of these specialists, called shadowrunners, have earned a reputation for getting the job done. You are a Shadowrunner.

And boy, do I have a sweet job for you, omae. So wether you're a spell slinging mage or shaman, a magically enhanced adept or a badass street samurai who has more chrome than meat parts, come with me and we'll talk...

How do P&P style games work on Forums?

At least, that's what I think.

How do P&P style games work on Forums?

Character sheets are posted in the OOC thread, most of the action is done in the same way as a freeform one (EG John went over to the door. Poking his head around, he saw a hunter zombie getting ready to pounce.), except that dice rolls are used to determine actions. Using the example, John would have to roll perception to see the zombie. The forum has an inbuilt die roller, which we'll be using for that.

Would this be like the Fallout PnP from way back?

Yes. Except that I have no plans to move house any time soon, so my internet shouldn't disappear for over a month, so the game shouldn't collapse so soon.
