Subj: Re: problem with the assault cannon...
Actually, I've only played ShadowRun once since that first game since
I got thoroughly fed up with the combat system. The full situation was:
- I was playing a troll streat samurai (redesigned archetype by the group)
- the opposing shaman (wearing REALLY light armor) took an assault cannon
blast and shrugged it off
- I then got promptly blown away by an opposing SS using an AVM...
As far as alternatives go, I've never played Cyberpunk...
However, I do have my favorite (read realistic combat & better matrix
setup) one: Cyberspace used as a supplement for Space Master (adjusting
Space Master tech down of course)...
Characters tend to avoid combat a lot more unless the odds heavily favor
Just rambling off on another gaming tangent :)
