No probs... If you note the little Orky smile at the end, I was only
teasing (Are you on the Shadowrn Mailing List? I didn't recognize your
handle or addy...?). Don't take me TOO seriously, most of the time.
Nobody else does...:]

Ok, I looked and couldn;t actually find anything in the rulebook (most
annoying, but then, what do you want out of a tiny little StarterDeck

However, I (As well as the Listowner, Loki, and Dvixen, and Caric (You here
yet Caric?)) got to Demo the game at Gen Con with some official FASA reps,
and we were told that unless otherwise stated, you need to visit a location
with a runner, and visiting will Turn (tap:)) the runner.

No, but you can visit it with multiple runners. usually I get THUMPed by
this card, though. But i do it anyways...;]

Loki isn;t Official (yet), but He's probably as close as we get. However,
hopefully we'll be able to talk either Mike "Skuzzy" Nielson (the card
designer) or FASAMike Mulvhill (The Shadowrun Line Developer) into joining
the list eventually.

hey Loki? you emntioned this list to FASAMike yet? If not, I'll mail him
and let him know we have this list set up. It has a much lower traffic
volume (At the moment) than Shadowrn... maybe we can get him on here, at

Bull, aka Steven Ratkovich, aka Rak, aka a lot of others! :]
