Loving Neverwinter, thought maybe some of its ideas should make their way into tabletop RPGs…


Trained Help


Requires: item creation feat

Benefit:  You have the services of a person who can create any item you can create.  He/she requires only 75% of the normal amount needed to create any item you could create.  This person still requires all the time you would need to make the item and may not help in any way to adventure.  The GM may involve this person in adventures however.

Been a crazy day, but here are some random thoughts for you.  First from Shadowrun

Alternative Rule-All nighter-when you have a skill challenge where a check constitutes a day, you may make two checks per day.  Each day you make two checks, you take a -2 dice pool modifier from exhaustion.  After you stop taking extra checks per day, the penalty is reduced by 1 for every day you only make one check until the penalty is 0.

Here is a feat for DnD Next-

Critical Advantage-When you make an attack with advantage and roll the same value on each die, the result is considered a critical hit if the attack would normally hits the target.

It’s time for some Shadowrun get negative qualities! This time with a touch of Johnny Nemmonic and something I want for my own character…

Negative quality
Data carrier
+5-in your head is a data device that you can’t access. You lose 0.5 essence and one person is looking for it.
+15-as +5but a group of people is looking for it.
+30- as+15 but the group is a megacorp or similar group and the device is linked to a cranial bomb. Any attemp to remove the data without the password must pass a hacking + computer check with 10 successes or trigger the bomb.

Turn about is fair play for the mages in shadowrun

Twined souls-positive quality-10bp-you may bind two spirits to you. The cost to bind these spirits is doubles and the only perform half as many tasks. However when you give a command to one spirit, both spirits perform this task.

Playing Shadowrun tonight, and man do I wish I had this for those extra hard fights

Networked Drones-ranked program-This program allows several different drones to be networked and follow an action as if each drone was given the same action through a simple action.  The cost of this item is equal to the sum of all pilot programs for each drone.  The networked drones all use the rank of the pilot check equal to the lowest pilot check used to determine the cost of this program.

I had to do this, and I thought my Shadowrun character would have a quicker way.


Redundant system reboot-cost 1/2 of total computer cost-In the event of a computer hacker being detected, the computer will reboot the system, but the redundant backup system will keep all currently running programs running as well as triggering all additional ice programs on the system.  The computer will lose no time during this reboot while the hacker will be ejected from the system as if the computer had been turned off.

We all have friends, maybe they should help us out more….


friendly pressure cost 10 pb  you may ask any contact you have to help you obtain an item that they would normally have assess to.  Have the contact make a connection +  loyalty test.  Reduce the availability of an item by each success.  If it item’s availability is above 8 after this test, you may not buy the item and you lose loyalty with the contact as he/she is unable to obtain the item and experiences some difficulty in obtaining the item.  The availability rating is a general cutoff and different GM’s may change the cutoff based on story considerations.


thoughts gang?

I’ve been seeing a lot of these lately and it’s time for some in shadow run…..

Resolution-0bp- must be taken after character generation. Choose a negative aspect of your character or indicate a trait you want to better. Working with your GM select on characteristic related to what you want to better. If you continue your positive ability for two weeks in game you gain a +1 die bonus to your characteristic. If you stop your resolution for more then one game day you instead gain a -1 penalty to your characteristic. You must then restart your two week period to return to the bonus.

I’ve been listening to Neuromancer and I think its time for some Shadowrun


Recorded conciseness-provides a computer program with a computer skill equal to 4,000 Y.  This computer program use any programs that you have available and can work along side you as if it were a drone.  Many options are available, but higher skill conciseness have their own quirks that the GM may incorporate.
