Hmm . . . shadwrun isn't exactly a vase of roses either. I tend to
run my games along the lines of the dreary setting of _Blade_Runner_.

In that movie, what made it so drearys was a sense of stagnation. Of the
fact that society isn't going to get any better than it already is, and
right now it isn't all that great.

But then again, I have really morphed Shadowrun. I've combined it
with Nightlife, cyberpunk, Gurps. You would recongnoze it, but it is
several generations removed from what FASA is shoving at us.

The copyright to their contents probably lies with the original authors of the individual messages, but since they were published in an electronic forum that anyone could subscribe to, and the logs were available to subscribers and most likely non-subscribers as well, it's felt that re-publishing them here is a kind of public service.
