Someone asked about how to handle Matrix runs and keep the rest of the team interested...
How's this for a pathological gaming session? The player running the decker in my SR group
decided to be a little different. He wanted to make his character a real ass (Why I have
_no_ idea)... His first act was to start withholding information from his teammates. I had
to try and remember what he wanted them to know and what he didn't! Ugh... At any rate,
the other characters wound up killing the decker... That guy doesn't sit in on our group
much anymore. :)

I know, I know... No real suggestions... But I think it's funny at any rate. :)

Good luck running Matrix encounters!
