Cyberspace, the electronoic frontier...
These are the stories of the Shadowrun cybergeeks...
Their ongoing mission, to annoy the hell out of everyone else and
to eventually rule the would. And maybe to get some really
good pizza.


The question has (sort of) come up about what will happen after the TOME
project is done. I figured I'd take a few minutes before I have to
trundle off to class and tell you....

We're going to be spending the next month or so voting on the submissions
and revising those that need revising. Once that is done. The TOME
project will be completed except for me who has to go and edit it all
together. Expect it by Xmas.

After TOME is done, I have a great idea for the next project.

The ShadowRun PLOT Book!

What this is is a compendium of plot ideas for GMs to use for their
adventures. If a GM has to run a game and they are lacking for a good
idea, they can simply open the book and find a couple paragraph (or
couple page) outline for an adventure. These will NOT be modules, but
will be generic enough that even all of us who have higly variant rules
will be able to use them.

This will probably start around the 15th of January. The reason I'll
start it so late is because most people begin to take off for the
holidays around the 1st of December and don't return until about the 3rd
week of January. Figure the completed plot book will be out around
April 1 or so.

Yes, I know this is a little advanced warning, but I figured I'd let all
of you know that there is a future for TOME after the first gets

At this point, dont' concern yourself with plotlines. I'll make a full
announcement of it once voting is completed on the current project and
the list is ready for the new one (I also am working on a system of
assigning authors an author number for better classifying).

Remember, we're here to exercise our creativity. And exercise it we will.

These messages were posted a long time ago on a mailing list far, far away. The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
