Have a Hyperjump go wrong and Star Wars characters end up in the Sprawl, trying to figure out how to get the parts made to fix the hyperdrive.

I'd consider picking up the 2e PHB and DMG, and maybe the Monstrous Compendium or the Monstrous Manual, but beyond that...yeah, probably not. I'd skip most of the splatbooks and player's options. ...

Look, an escort mission subject who would take a full dodge and go to cover would be a nine billion times improvement over the average video game escort subject.

Ok, in Shadowrun 4e (and later), you roll Xd6, and you score a "hit" for every 5 or 6 you roll. The more hits, the better you did.

So, and I'm just playing with the concept, what if you u ...

Siege relief: Your job is to go into a hot situation and either smuggle necessary supplies OR provide a counter-strike that allows those under siege to escape/break the siege.
