Open Play Shadowrun with Retrograde

July 9 @ 6:00 pm - 10:00 pm

Come learn the cyber-fantasy roleplaying game Shadowrun 6th Ed. Tuesdays in July 6pm-10pm (7/2, 7/9, 7/16, & 7/23 – No game on 7/30)

The shape of the Sixth World is not an accident. It did not fall into place by happenstance. It was deliberately designed, and it was not designed for you. The megacorps of the world, dominated by the Big Ten, have somehow found new ways to flex their muscles and grind people under their heels. Governments are caught between wanting to collaborate and seeking power of their own. Occasionally, they’ll spare a thought for the good of their people. Maybe. When the system is designed to crush you, the only way to live is outside it. Break away and try to build a life for yourself outside of the megacorporate path. You can fight to survive, thrive, and perhaps even earn a little justice.

Welcome to the shadows.

What you think shadowrunners are is as much about yourself as it is about them. Corp drones see them as nuisances or necessary assets, depending on the day of the week. Law enforcement sees them as criminals who need to be locked up. To the common citizens of the world, they are a kind of demon Robin Hood, people who might bring you a taste of justice or who might eat your soul. To other shadowrunners, they are the only people capable of any sort of honest life. This much is clear: They do the work others can’t do, won’t do, or both. They uncover hidden data, get people out of bad job situations and into better ones (or sometimes the reverse), recover people who are missing, find lost treasures, and if they’re ethically pliable enough, eliminate people for money. They survive, try to thrive, all while balancing ruthlessness with whatever code they claim to follow.
