One of the last things I would like to see is another Foundations book. To
tell you the truth, except for the plot section, I found it kinda useless.

This book should include 80% GENERAL information, and about 20% examples.
I could care less what Joe Blow Shadowrunner does and why the Underworld seems
to revolve around him. I want to know how my team can do the same thing, not
50 examples of underworld people who I don't consider worth putting into my
campaign world. This book should read from cover to cover like a guideline.
I was thinking of a book up to par with FASA's Aztlan, Tir Tangire and
Corp Shadowfiles.

Sure, in the latter 5th of the book, we can include a few example gangs,
fixers, armourers, mechanics in an example "fleshed out" sprawl. But I feel
the majority of the book should be the instructions to allow any GM to build
the same thing a hundred times over.

Mr. Holland and I are working on a Gang Encounter system, but I haven't
gotten much of a chance to work on it.(Stupid Parents)
