Shadowrun RPG

Shadowrun Roleplaying Game

Converting to Genesys RPG

Genesys: is a generic roleplaying game system by Fantasy Flight Games that uses a narrative style of play, and dynamic advancement system and has its roots in the Star Wars Roleplaying Game. There are three sourcebooks released at this stage. A core rules, a fantasy epic and a cyberpunk which when combined make a decent Shadowrun without bending the rules.

What is this project. This is a project to create a new narrative based game around the Shadowrun Universe. There is also a chance I will incorporate other 80’s based nostalgia in there as well that would be a step away from Shadowrun depending on the players and when I set the game.

Shadowrun Campaign Notes

  • Personalities – Personalities of the Shadowrun world, this is based on the campaign information I had put together based around 2072.
  • Horrors – ​Unspeakable evil wanting to kill every living thing​.
  • Rewards – Cash, Karma with advancement and becoming legends.
  • Security – When runners get up to their nefarious deeds, it is the security forces of the sixthed world’s job to stop them. Their job is not an easy one, as runners are generally more skilled, and better equipped. This section provides information about the security techniques you can throw at your players to keep them on their toes.​
