The 4 Sentence Tool By: Clemmensen

The 4 Sentence Tool is a quick way to describe a NPCs personality in greater detail using the 4 sentences: Fascinated by, Seduced by, Offended by and Frightened by.

Knowing more about your NPC's personality and behavioral patterns as a GM, makes it easier for you to interact with the players and create memorable NPCs.

It offers endless possibilities and limitless power, but because of this can easily become game-breaking, create onerous repetition, or cause excessive confusion. This post has taken special care to present chrono-themed special abilities that play well with others and mesh with the role-playing format, all while still presenting a new collection of choices and mechanics to explore.

Darkness and Shadows, Part 1 of 126 By: Silveressa

Part 1 of a Shadowrun novel, I wrote a few months back, that I decided to place up here for public enjoyment, and commentary, after yet another rejection letter for dead tree publication.

This novel is Rated R for graphic violence, adult situations, and general all around Cyberpunk goodness.

GM's and players may find it useful for character concepts/backgrounds and adventure ideas, enjoy, more to follow every week.
