This is Critical Glitch, a Shadowrun Podcast Episode 039 Your host, The Most Dangerous Man in Gaming – Tim Patrick Co-Host: Bob “Dr. Meatgrinder” Loper Co-Host, Mike “Cadre Elite” Messmer Magic in the Shadowrun world is vast and can be complicated as such we had to split this episode into two parts. We start by covering the types of awakened characters you can portray such as the Hermetic Mage, the Shaman, the Adept, the Aspected Mage (and why you should not), and finally the cracked out Mystic Adept. We talk a bit about the different paths available to Shamans, and why everyone can use a Mentor Spirit. We cover casting spells, countering spells, how to resist them, and how to calculate your drain. We also spend a bit of time talking about the Spirits and the difference between a bound and unbound spirit and what they can do for you. We hope this episode answers some questions for you and we are certain it will bring new questions.

Rank #9: Episode 045: Data Trails

Podcast cover
Read more

This is Critical Glitch, a Shadowrun Podcast Episode 045 Your host, The Most Dangerous Man in Gaming – Tim Patrick Co-Host: Bob “Dr. Meatgrinder” Loper In this episode we take a deeper look into Data Trails the “Core Matrix Hanbook” Both Bob and myself found the book to be light on rules, and some of the rules that where included should have been moved to a dedicated e-pub to make room for more core concepts.  For a Matrix Core Handbook there was little to nothing for Technomancers absolutely nothing on their sprites. We both found the book to be better then Run & Gun and Street Grimoire but not as polished as Run Faster. The lack of an index and intuitive chapter names still plagues the line for these reasons we both placed the book at around a C+ grade. Definitely worth getting in PDF, and you won’t feel like you wasted your money if you buy the hardback.
