Never heard of it. BUT if you find it, post it, so we can all enjoy it's gloirousness.

I found a partial version. The hard copy is much cleaner, and includes all of the cybernetics listed in Cracken's Rebel Field Guide, as well.

Also, the version in the link is as I found it, with no effort made to correct spelling or formatting errors. If that's a project anyone feels like taking on, I also have it available in RTF format.

We heartily congratulate you on surviving the latest mass extinction event.

Pull that off four more times and you'll become an honorary tardigrade! (Seriously, those "water bears" are TOUGH; they survived all five of the last mass extinction events on this planet. ShockedShockedShocked )

Given your focus, CR, you might consider going to DrivethruRPG and get some of the free QuickStart rules for the various editions, so you can have an idea of the mechanics, then look at supplements, which tend to have the new mechanics and neat toys.

I will disagree with Demon Apostle... I view 1e and 2e as the ones with the strongest source material... books like Fields of Fire, Awakenings, and Paranormal Animals of North America were filled with flavor that 3e and later supplements just did not have.

Agreed. Hatchetman's metamorphosis chronicled in Cybertechnology still gives me chills. I always enjoyed the narratives mixed with hard stats (very much like Star Wars) to flesh out the sandbox.

And the Shadowtalk! brief snips from a message board talking about the equipment, or commenting on the text itself.

Sounds like WEG got the idea from them for what they did in Gundark. Which ties in nicely to the Holonet having a low-end BBS-type system (ala early 90's internet access) for accessing and interacting with data like that.

Gundark's was released in 1997.

Shadowrun has been doing it since 1989. But, yeah, a BBS-Type System was what was being imitated.

My name here is directly drawn from Paranormal Animals of North America (filtered through like 20 years of internet use).

Now I want to cross over Shadowrun with Star Wars.

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.

You ever read Harlequinn's Back? Now, imagine throwing Star Wars in as an Astral Quest.

Good one! You could also throw in some Charon as part of the horrors trying to invade Earth.

Insect spirits are seriously bad mojo.

It also occurs to me that a Jedi vs. hermetic mage fight would be interesting and probably brief, depending upon what range it starts at.
