Since I get the digest, I'll combine a couple of quick replies....

Yep, that's how I've handled it with my players, too ... well, at least I
*did*. (I haven't GM'd Shadowrun since I moved to New Jersey this year.
{sniff}) The players can perform their actions in any order or, if
feasible, concurrently.

Thus did Derek Hyde write (great name, by the way -- I'll have to use
it for a PC one day!):

Derek, first off, welcome to the list! The more, the merrier. I don't post
as often as I should (Bad Ken! Bad!), but I'll try to be more active. Don't
be too concerned about the proliferation of Earthdawn comments lately.
Every now and then, something will happen to launch a bunch of ED-related
posts for a few days, and then you may not see a mention of Earthdawn for
months. :-) As it turns out, you joined the list during one of those surges
(no YotC pun intended).

The important thing to know is that, as far as any Shadowrun campaign you
run is concerned, the Earthdawn information is completely optional. You and
your players don't need to know a thing about it.
