Episode 018 – Religion in the Sixth World

For episode 18, Vox and Mr. Johnson are joined by a guest host. We cover the topic of the role of religion in Shadowrun; what religions exist in the sixth world, tips for playing a character with religious beliefs, and how religions might result in shadowruns. For this week’s critter corner, we explore the dark and mysterious Shedim.

Episode 017 – Questions and Answers

Mentioned in Episode 16, here is a cool Kickstarter campaign for cyberpunk soundtracks (looks like she’s fully funded, but there are some nifty stretch goals still out there): https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/1766442648/cyberpunk-soundtracks-tabletop-gaming-soundscapes

Until such time as we get a section up on the website with resources for SR, here are a couple of them:

Chummer – Character generator for Shadowrun 4e (http://chummergen.com/)

SmartLink – Initiative and condition tracker for Shadowrun SR3 and SR4 (free version) and SR5 (full version for $1.99) (https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/smartlink/id568514088?mt=8)

Got Questions?

This week we’re doing a sort of “housekeeping” show in which we answer questions and address requests that we’ve let pile up. Got any questions you’d like us to add to the pile? Post them here or on Facebook! We’ll do our best to get them all answered!

Bonus Episode 003 – Our Characters

In which Vox and Mr. Johnson, due to some schedule restrictions, throw any semblance of a script right out the window and devote an hour to talking about their own Shadowrun characters. Per listener request, of course!

Episode 015 – Game Mastering Shadowrun Part 4: NPC Design

In which Vox and Mr. Johnson go through the process of NPC Design for our fourth installment of our Game Mastering Shadowrun series. We also announce the winner of our first contest: one listener wins a copy of Shadowrun Returns!

Netjitsu Gone Wrong

In the event that you have found no Arcology Podcast activity since Episode 8, please head on over to iTunes, search for “Arcology Podcast,” and find the second show out there that will have all of our episodes.

In the process of trying to find out why no one could see our Bonus Episode 1, we talked with our web host. Our service representative did the netjitsu that they do and got us all fixed up… or so we thought. Now we’ve found that there is a “second” Arcology Podcast available for subscription in iTunes. One listing has only episodes 1 – 8, the other has all of our episodes, including the two bonus episodes we’ve so far completed.

So… if you have found that you only have episodes 1 – 8, we’re humbly asking you to go out to iTunes, search for us again, and subscribe to the complete listing. We hate to inconvenience anyone, but we also have extremely limited time with which to investigate this further (and no funds with which to hire someone who knows what we want and what they are doing!). Rather than mess with what appears to be a perfectly good feed, we’ve chosen to handle it this way.

Thanks, Chummers. 🙂

Episode 013 – Game Mastering Shadowrun Part 2: Campaign Prep

In which Mr. Johnson and Vox talk about how to prepare your Shadowrun campaign. Also included: a review of the recently-released Gear Cards, and a new listener story!
