What is Shadowrun?

Shadowrun is a cyberpunk-urban fantasy cross-genre role-playing game, set 63 years in the future.[1]following a great cataclysm that has brought use of magic back to the world, just as it begins to embrace the marvels (and dangers) of technologies such as cyberspace, omnipresent computer networks, genetic engineering, and the merger of man and machine called cyberware. Despite its departure in some respects from the "mainstream" cyberpunk genre, Shadowrun is perhaps the best-known and most popular RPG for this genre. Definition from Wikipedia.


Elf, Orc, Troll, Dwarf, and Humans work the shadows. Doing contract work for the corporations, often times illegal and always dangerous. It is a job for those that live in the shadows, without System Identification Numbers (SIN) so they don't exist.

Mages, Shamans, Technomancers, Hackers, Riggers, Faces, Street Samurai, and more, are all running the shadows. It makes a hard world, a deadly world.
