Which brings up a fairly good question. What is considered a 'good rate'
for a shadowrun? I've set up runs at 2000-5000 range, with no player
complaints. But I've run games at conventions where playes said that
20,000 nNuYen is way too little.

Is there a standardised system? I know Cyberpunk has DERN1000. I'll post
that here, if you'd like to see that (READ:It's not with me tonight...)
