Hi Dorle, thanks for the welcome. I've wanted to get on here and add to the cannon material for a while but wasn't sure how to do it. I thought I would just log on and start experimenting. BTW, this "talk" board seems a little awkward to use, any other options for discussing things? 5:30pm EST April 26th, 2018

This page - https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Shadowrun_Prehistory_Timeline - is almost entirely non-canon and has been copied over from the source blog without permission, in violation of your terms of use, copyright, and your licensing terms. I added a notice to that effect on the page and on the talk page. The page was reverted without reply on the talk page. The fact that a portion seems to have been accidentally left out of the middle of one paragraph is an additional indication of carelessness.
  +
  +
As I have since pointed out on the talk page, virtually nothing in that timeline is canon. It was written as background information for an early-edition shadowrun campaign and posted for the benefit of the old players. It really doesn't belong on a Shadowrun Wiki except, perhaps, in a "personal campaign" section - and even then only with permission. Could you please correct this situation?

Hi, welcome to Shadowrun Wiki! Thanks for your edit to the List of Shadowrun books page.

Please leave a message on my talk page if I can help with anything! -- Uberfuzzy (Talk) 16:21, 11 May 2009

Hi Dorle. Have you thought about adopting this wiki? Angela (talk) 20:28, 2 June 2009 (UTC)

Registering and things[]

Well, I don't really intend to contribute to the wiki much, especially minding that the section I am interested in, namely, the Sega Genesis Shadowrun game info, seems to be pretty much completed. Then again, even if I edit it, my IP is not going to change any time soon. 81.25.50.129 03:43, September 7, 2009 (UTC)

Adoption[]

Go figure, I was just going to ask to adopt this wiki and it looks like someone beat me to it.

I'm interested in creating a bunch of homebrew sections here. Just noting. (I'm the owner of Dungeons and Dragons Wiki, which has that purpose for that game.) Surgo 01:37, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

If you mean self created characters, locations and/or equipement with homebrew, this would be fine.
--Dorle 15:38, October 8, 2009 (UTC)
I mean that exactly. I'll be setting up a lot of new templates to support that, as well as navigations pages etc. It would be pretty helpful if I was able to edit the sidebar, but that's not immediate. Surgo 22:45, October 8, 2009 (UTC)

Ad free[]

Hi! Would you like this wiki to be ad-free? I'm looking for wikis to be part of a new program which would remove all ads from the wiki for $19.95/month.

If you are interested, please be visit here to sign up. Let me know if you have any questions! - sannse (help forum | blog) 20:38, June 2, 2010 (UTC)

No offense at all of course! :) It's great you are here and enjoying the wiki. I think most people will prefer to leave their wikis as ad-supported, and that's just fine too :) Thanks for looking - sannse (help forum | blog) 20:11, June 4, 2010 (UTC)

Shadowrun wiki, merger with the 6WW[]

I see a while ago you were active on the Shadowrun Wiki. I have some good news: not only am I trying to reactivate this wiki, but the Sixth World Wiki admin has now agreed to help us merge the wikis to wikia. See Talk:Main_Page#Migrating_Sixth_World_Wiki , and I hope you'll be active on this wiki once again :) Piotrus 00:15, August 9, 2011 (UTC)

I will.
But in the question of "No Non-Canon material" I strictly disagree with you and MJBurage: The Focus of this Wiki here first hand was layed on self created "Non-Player-Characters". It would be unacceptable, to delete all these. - They may have a template on the top of the page "Non-Canon" or "self created by user xyz" - but they should still have their place here. Same on self created locations or organizations.
--Dorle 15:18, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
I don't think we should remove non-canon material, just label it as such, and give canon material precedence. See the main talk page for further details. —MJBurrage(TC) 16:08, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
I also think there is no reason to delete the material. As long as we can label it clearly as non-canon, it should all be fine. Piotrus 21:11, August 10, 2011 (UTC)
I'm willing do some work restoring the old Wiki--or moving it to a new site. I had done a lot of work to it (as Black Angus) before it was taken down and I'd be happy to help clean up, or move the content as needed. A post-crash dumpshock seems wholly appropriate.
Laird Angus 20:56, September 5, 2011 (UTC)

Hi. I just wanted to clean up and update some of the information in the wikis given that this is my specialty. James Meiers 07:56, November 5, 2011 (UTC)

Thanks for doing all the leg work on this! It feels nice to finally be in Dumpshock 2.0.

I do have two questions 1) is there a way for me to move templates? my template for Pomorya is missing and 2) how do I merge my "Laird Angus" Account with "Black Angus"? I'm through being an aristocrat--I want to go back to being a cut of meat.

thanks

Black Angus 01:30, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

  1. First: which template is missing? - How did it look, and when you've put it into the article?
  2. Second: I realy don't have any idea how to do so. The only way would be, to copy & paste the content of the "Laird Angus" user page, and then to make that user page a redirect to the "Black Angus" user page.
    --Dorle 16:15, December 9, 2011 (UTC)

Sorry to keep bothering you. I have two more questions:

  1. Can we use pictures from the books or are they copyrighted and forbidden?
  2. Is there a ticker for the number of times a page has been seen? If so how do I turn it on? (I am a little curious about how often my contributions are read.)

Black Angus 00:55, December 15, 2011 (UTC)

  1. Since this is an american wiki, I think, we can use the template Fairuse, if we don't use to much pictures.
    --Dorle 18:02, December 15, 2011 (UTC)
  2. I really don't know.

Thanks

Black Angus 00:18, December 16, 2011 (UTC)

articles to delete[]

Hi, you have adminstrative rights, correct? I have added a number of spam articles to the deletion category: Category:Pages_for_deletion. Maybe you find time to take care of them.
--ShxLoki 11:49, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

Hi, yes - I've. - Any requested deletions Done. (And yes - I hate such spammers as much as you!)
--Dorle 16:08, November 12, 2011 (UTC)

I've added some pages from my recent cleanup. Also, chose and kill one from Category:Candidates for deletion and Category:Pages for deletion :) --Piotrus 06:17, November 14, 2011 (UTC)

Re: List of Shadowrun Books[]

Most List of Shadowrun books was just a fork of Wikipedia entry, with that information present there. Some wasn't, could you transfer it there? Frankly, I think all we need is a list of books so that articles on them, which Wikipedia does not allow, can be accessed. But we do not need a page with all the extra information if Wikipedia has it. Or, conversely, we could host such a page, and Wikipedia would host a bare list. I'd appreciate your suggestions, my intentions here is to ensure that there is only one page (site) with detailed information, so people do not duplicate one another work trying to maintain two such lists (one here and one at Wikipedia). I apologize if anything was lost in my yesterday's merge, feel free to restore the content and if you'd like to improve the list further, that would be great. --Piotrus 18:31, November 14, 2011 (UTC)

The thing is: I'm not native english, so I cann't improve it there (official Wikipedia dosn't allow upcoming books in their lists for example). And I don't know how to "source" books in a list. - But in wikipedia any changes without source just are reverted.

Even, if it should only be on Wikipedia (I don't think so, because I'm there no admin, and therefore haven't any control what is kept and what is deleted) the page there has to be linked on any of these plain source- rule- and what-ever-books-lists, we keep here.

--Dorle 19:19, November 14, 2011 (UTC)
Well, how about this then. Let's try to create a better entry here, I can then remove unreferenced parts from Wikipedia, with which I am quite familiar. Can you take care of this on our end? --Piotrus 19:50, November 14, 2011 (UTC)
I don't know exactly, how to do it, but I would like, to keep the different lists (Rulebooks, Sourcebooks, Adventures) like they are now, only adding the one wide columne for the explanations to each of the lists. - I think a list of books need no references, because the books in the lists are the references (i.e. sources).
--Dorle 20:38, November 14, 2011 (UTC)
Sounds good. What could I help you with? --Piotrus 01:23, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
Importing that Column from the english Wikipedia. - I would add the missing Information here, on the site, but I'm working with a really old computer, which tends, to make problems, if I've open more than one window at time - so copy-pasting is a very slow process. Also I'm not so good in creating and formating tables at Wikipedia-software.
--Dorle 04:33, November 15, 2011 (UTC)
I'll see if I can import anything from Wikipedia next week. --Piotrus 23:41, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Good news, I was able to implement a revised template that allows us to add extra line to the books so we can add notes. See [1] - as you can see, it is quite easy, so we can readd your notes. I do have, however, to concerns. One is that the current split list seems to have some duplicates and made some questionable choices. First, You can find the Cannon Companion in both the List of Shadowrun sourcebooks and List of Shadowrun rulebooks - and it is not the only book that is present in two lists. And why is Shadowrun Companion in sourcebook list, not rulebook list? This makes me question whether the current list are correctly split. My second problem is that Catalyst has introduced some murky categories and books that mix adventures and sourcebooks. Emergence, for example. But even earlier, for example, 3rd ed Matrix (7909) had more than just rules, it had sections on matrix (check p.7-15), and so on. I do not agree that this book should be in the rulebooks. Why there are some books we can clearly call "adventures", there are many that are difficult to classify, and I don't like the idea of having them listed on multiple lists (and pages). My suggestion is as follows:

we would only have two pages: one for books with rules and stats (core rules, sourcebooks, adventures, etc.), second for pure fiction (novels, etc.). The novel one would be the current list of Shadowrun books (we can rename it later); the second, would consist of the current pages on rulebooks, sourcebooks and adventures, merged together
I'd like to implement sortable table (if works on Wikia, see Wikipedia here for how it works there). Then we can estabilish several keywords for books, and add a new "type" column. I suggest we have the following types:
Core rules. Obviously, for the 1-4.5th edition core rulebooks only.
Adventures: For the books that are purely adventures.
Setting. This would include all other sourcebooks.
I was thinking about more details - such as plot books (campaign outlines, such as Emergence or Ghost Cartels), splitting location, matrix, weapon, culture sourcebooks, and so on, but it's too much work for an easy table. We can achieve this better through notes, and dedicated articles on books, where we can have templates and categories listing for example all books that are location sourcebooks and such. The problem with trying to keep it in the table would be that books can be part of multiple types (for example, Emergence is an adventure, but also a matrix sourcebook, or Running Wild, which is a sourcebook, but very rule heavy, and so on). We could do it through a table with multiple columns, but frankly, it's a pain, so I'd suggest creating a simple table first, and if we want to add more columns to it later, we can do it AFTER we are done with our primary table).

What do you think? --Piotrus 20:59, November 26, 2011 (UTC)

The idea with the three lists - Core Rule Books, Adventures and the third + Novels are fine for me.
--Dorle 09:40, November 27, 2011 (UTC)
List of Shadowrun rulebooks now has sortable tables, and is a prototype for the revised lists. --Piotrus 01:38, December 1, 2011 (UTC)

Menehune[]

I don't know why Wikia did that. All I did was update a link and add a category. —MJBurrage(TC) 21:49, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Some odd reaction of the system. - Sh... happens.
--Dorle 21:52, November 18, 2011 (UTC)

Main Page Tweaks[]

With the latest excitement in this series, the Wikia Development Team would like to create a skin/new main page for you guys. We are hoping that others will get enthused about this community and it will become active again. The new skin/main will probably be up today or tomorrow. Thanks. - Wagnike2 16:34, April 9, 2012 (UTC)

Editing Commons.css[]

There is indeed something. I want to do an infobox template. Maybe you can insert some css code into MediaWiki:Common.css (once I have figured out the style), because administrative rights are needed to edit that page.
--ShxLoki (talk) 21:54, October 11, 2012 (UTC)

If you give me the Code, I will try, to insert it there. (And, of course: you can adress me in German. - I'm an account of the User "Kathe" in Shadowhelix or "Karel" in Shadowiki.)
--Dorle (talk) 17:29, December 15, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, I have to experiment with styles first, though. For the sake of being intelligible by everyone else I would suggest to stick to English. If you don't mind.
--ShxLoki (talk) 22:13, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
If you want to try it, you can put the content of User:ShxLoki/monobook.css on MediaWiki:Common.css. The colors are not optimal. Maybe you have a different suggestion.
--ShxLoki (talk) 18:53, December 18, 2012 (UTC)
Okay, that didn't work. It might have to be also placed in MediaWiki:Wikia.css. I have added comment tags around my code, maybe you copy it directly from User:ShxLoki/monobook.css again. If this works we can set up an import solution to serve Common.css and Wikia.css at the same time.
--ShxLoki (talk) 08:29, December 23, 2012 (UTC)
We're getting closer. Can you change only the first ".infobox" to ".infobox2" in MediaWiki:Wikia.css? It seems somewhere is already css code for infobox.
--ShxLoki (talk) 08:42, January 5, 2013 (UTC)
I've done that. - But at least: Why not use (and modify) simply the template:sourcebook?
--Dorle (talk) 14:25, January 5, 2013 (UTC)

Category name[]

Hi, in English "resources" does not have a double s.
--ShxLoki (talk) 17:33, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

Didn't know that.
--Dorle (talk) 19:00, January 10, 2013 (UTC)

(External) Link to French Shadowwiki[]

How to add a link to the french shadowwiki like the german wiki ? Archaos-JdR (talk) 22:50, January 29, 2013 (UTC)

--Dorle (talk) 16:24, January 30, 2013 (UTC)

Belrogs[]

Hi Dorle

Calaban.the.hunter

I was wondering if I should add a profil for the Belrogs so that others can use what I have created in their games

Andrew

If it is self created, you may add one. - But no complete weapon or vehicle profiles from source books. (For exemple: If the unit uses weapons from official sourcebooks, you may write "Gun xy, profile: Sourcebook xy, page x" but not the profile of the gun itself, like it is printed in the sourcebook)
--Dorle (talk) 05:07, February 12, 2013 (UTC)

Spiff[]

Hi, Dorle!

Wanted to let you know that I'm working on spiffing up the main page a bit. It won't be anything too drastic, but if there's anything I do that you don't like, please let me know! I'll also be adding some content for the new game coming out.

Best regards, Raylan13 (talk) 19:11, May 13, 2013 (UTC)

I like it. Though, the novel image in the slider is actually a sourcebook cover. It should be substituted with a cover from one of the novels. And then maybe the sourcebook cover could be linked to the List of Shadowrun sourcebooks. Or maybe for now it would be better to link to the Category:Sources as the links in the list have to be modified first.
--ShxLoki (talk) 23:25, May 13, 2013 (UTC)
Glad you like it! I'll modify the link in the slider to the Category:Sources page. Seems it would have a lot of information to offer. Raylan13 (talk) 16:15, May 14, 2013 (UTC)

Navigation Update[]

Hey Dorle,

We were interested in tweaking the wiki's navigation bar a little if you're okay with it. Basically wanted to push everything up a little, removing Shadowrun from the first bar, replacing it with tabletop game, novels, video games, or something similar in order to fit a little more direction there. Does that sound ok? Any ideas are totally welcome of course!

admin[]

Do you know what I need to do to get admin flag here? I wanted to move a page (Insect Spirit to insect spirits) and the Wikia won't allow me. A bit of a bummer considering I was the only active admin for a while on the old 'shock site...  Piotrus (talk) 20:50, June 21, 2013 (UTC)

I think, you have to ask at Central Wikia. But at least, I will do the page move.
--Dorle (talk) 05:00, June 22, 2013 (UTC)
Would you happen to have a link? In the  meantime, Blood Magic should also be decapitalized. --Piotrus (talk) 16:11, June 23, 2013 (UTC)
I've done so. - At least, I'm not sure, were's the correct place, to ask for admin rights in Wikia. - And a question to adopt this wiki is n't possible, because I'm still active here. - But I saw, I was able, to make you admin myself. So I did it.
--Dorle (talk) 05:47, June 24, 2013 (UTC) edited: 07:51, June 24, 2013 (MESZ)
Thanks :) --Piotrus (talk) 08:27, June 24, 2013 (UTC)

Hi Dorle, thanks for your note and your welcome to the wiki! I might drop in and edit the odd page here and there as I notice references that I can update, so hopefully we'll be in touch in the future. Kaminari0 (talk) 13:21, July 10, 2013 (UTC)

NPC categories cleanup[]

I am planning on adding / cleaning up some NPC pages, and one of the first steps is organizing the category structure. I would like to remove some categories you've added - Profession 2E‎, Profession 3E‎, Profession 4E‎ and rename their xE subcats to remove the xE part. I just don't think it is useful to categorize any NPC by edition; for example consider Alan, corrupted ork Lone Star beat cop. Why should we care he is 4E? It's not like there are any stats. He should be in category Orks (not Ork 4E) and Law enforcement agents (not Law Enforcement 4E). Would you agree with my proposal? Piotrus (talk) 12:21, July 23, 2013 (UTC)

Okay - we agree, that NPCs without stats don't need a categorizing by Edition. That's pretty clear. - For those, who have allready stats, it maybe usefull. - At least, I added these categories only to follow the existing category structure that was present in this wiki. - But if you think, it's better without categorizing by Edition, you may change the categories the way, you think. - The only characters I added with stats (for third Edition, I think, were Mishiwa Kai-Tang and an other member of the Chinese Deadly Dwarfs gang.
--Dorle (talk) 20:39, July 23, 2013 (UTC)
Ok, so I did a c/e of Harry "Flamboyance" Brown as a test run. Renamed it, removed the weird Common Folk 3E‎ category, replaced elf 3e with elves, added new Category:Characters with 3E stats. That category I would add to the (to be created soon) Category:3E, which in turn will be at Category:Shadowrun system. What do you think? PS. For those w/out a source I'll add tl:potentially noncannon (we probably need one that clearly states noncannon or fanmade or such). --Piotrus (talk) 15:12, July 29, 2013 (UTC)

Good. - But in fact: all articles with stats have to be fanmade, because otherwise they are not legal.
--Dorle (talk) 15:51, July 29, 2013 (UTC)

I am not sure what you mean by legal here? --Piotrus (talk) 09:26, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
Copied stats from official printed or pdf adventures and sourcebooks released by Catalyst, FASA ect. are not allowed in the wiki (they would be a copyright infringement Catalyst Game Labs may worry about). - On the other hand: Self written stats for people that appear in an official source but don't have stats there are okay.
--Dorle (talk) 09:33, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
I see. I wonder if they'd really care about the old SR3 and before stats), but I have no intention to dispute this. Although do we have this rule written down anywhere? If not, please add it to the Shadowrun Wiki:Policy. --Piotrus (talk) 16:54, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
Why Catalyst potentially would care about old editions stats: Maybe because they republish the old first, second and third edition adventures as ebooks?
The rule written down: I think, we should have it somewere, but I'm not sure, were (i.E. which article name)
--Dorle (talk) 17:16, July 31, 2013 (UTC)
Shadowrun Wiki:No copied stats! is good. We should also have a rule about "no copyright violations", i.e. no unauthorized reproduction of text (quotation is not allowed, everything should be paraphrased). Piotrus (talk) 13:17, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

example article[]

You probably have already seen my example article. Basically the same stuff as with the Shadowhelix. I thought it would be a good moment to agree to that (or any other) general structure for normal articles.
--ShxLoki (talk) 10:03, August 1, 2013 (UTC)

Okay, why not?
--Dorle (talk) 18:37, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

admin status[]

Hi, could you also give me admin status? I would like to edit the css page. (Moved, as you probably overlooked this.)
--ShxLoki (talk) 06:20, September 1, 2013 (UTC)

Okay. - I would give you. - I hope, you don't start / try to change things, I don't want to have changed.
--Dorle (talk) 05:53, September 2, 2013 (UTC)
Thanks.
--ShxLoki (talk) 07:06, September 2, 2013 (UTC)


Thank you very much for offering to help. The only thing I don´t understand right now is how I sign my edits like other people do it (you know with link to the talk page and to the profile of the user). Other then that I am fine for now. But once The discussion on the talkpage is done, I will need help in deciding which of the arguments and facts I hasve researched belong in the wiki, and how to link the sources. I also need to know what I should name as source, the wiki, or do I need to look into their sources as far as they are named. You see I have done quite a bit of research, and made some interesting discoveries about jaquline (see the talk page)


Btw you don´t have to thank me, I have to thank you for all the hard work you do for this wiki ! Without it the world of shadowrun would be overwhelmingly complex for noobs like me, which can discourage people to start with shadowrun, or to stay with it, and without new people shadowrun would die sooner or later. This wiki has been incredibly helpful. During my first 2 novels (book 1+2 of the "Secrets of Power" trilogy) I have spend more time reading this wiki then I spend reading the books^^. Btw I have inherited the shadowrun stuff from my brother (he was a big shadowrun collector for many years, but now had to get rid of everything, since he opened his own shop, and couldn't afford the "distraction" any longer. So he gave it all to me), and this wiki will be extremely helpful in deciding what to read in which order, to get a background to understand the novels better. I might even start playing it once I find the people for it.   [feyn137]

Guided Tour: Cyberpunk Video Games[]

My name’s Matt and I’m a community development associate for Wikia. I’m in charge of a periodical feature called “Guided Tours” where I interview experts on a given topic, asking questions about how they got into their area of expertise and how they recommend others do the same. Our next feature is going to be on Cyberpunk video games -- and, of course, Shadowrun fits the bill!

If you could provide answers, as short or long as you see fit, to the questions below, your responses will be featured in the article. Check out a recent Guided Tours article for an example.

Thanks!

1. Tell me a bit about yourself and your involvement in the Shadowrun Wiki.
3. How did you get into Shadowrun? How's about into Cyberpunk games in general?
4. How would you recommend a beginner get into Cyberpunk games? Any particular title that would serve as a good starting point?
5. Is there anything you wouldn't recommend?
6. Any additional advice you’d give to someone new to Cyberpunk video games?
6. What resources on your wiki might be useful to an aspiring Cyberpunk gamer?

Thanks!
Matt Hadick (talk) 17:03, May 28, 2014 (UTC)

Thanks Dorle! Sorry it took me 5 months to reply! :-) I was wondering about redesigning the Vital Statistics Sections with the black borders... I think I'll do that with the other pages as I have time.


Also, I'm designing a Shadowrun Character if you'd like to see it... Also, quite by accident, I created a quite realistic-looking Shadowrun elf image last year for Halloween if you'd like to see that, too!

SR: Hong Kong[]

Heya, Dorle!

Long time no talk ;) Hope everything is still going well here and personally.

Shadowrun: Hong Kong was recently announced, with an associated Kickstarter. It's already blown by its funding goal by about $400k, so obviously pretty certain it will be produced :P

I was wondering if you wouldn't mind me stopping by in the coming week and updating the main page with info about it, as well as creating at least a page covering it. I'm not sure if you'd just want one central page on the site, or if you'd be okay with the creation of individual pages (for instance, one for each crew member, etc.).

Best regards,

Raylan13 (talk) 03:40, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Individual Pages for Crew members (those Characters like the ghoul/former Red Samurai) are fine. An Article on the game itself is also recommanded. And updating the mainpage is also okay.
--Dorle (talk) 04:42, January 21, 2015 (UTC)

Thanks! I'll get started on it :) Raylan13 (talk) 21:13, January 21, 2015 (UTC)
Should be complete now. The main page and navigation have been updated, as well as a page created for Shadowrun: Hong Kong. I also took the liberty of updating the site background with a larger image; on bigger displays it was splitting the Shadowrun logo right down the middle ;)
If there's anything you need, please don't hesitate to send me a message! Raylan13 (talk) 22:23, January 21, 2015 (UTC)
Thanks. - Well done.

Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown[]

Hi Dorle,

I have a couple of game codes via steam for the new Shadowrun Chronicles: Boston Lockdown. I wanted to give you one and another to an admin. Other than you, I don't see that many active admins on the wiki. Do you have a user to suggest to get the other code?

Please email me at nico@wikia-inc.com so I can give it to you. I'd rather not post it here on your talk page in case somebody else snags it up.

Thanks,

Shadowrun: Hong Kong[]

Hi, i added a page for the Shadowrun Hong Kong mision "Artifact Liberation". As of now it seems to be a stand alone page. im not completely sure how wikia works so if you could link it to the hong kong game mission category or tell me how to do it so its easier to find.

I think, we should have a category for "Shadowrun: Hong Kong". There this could be categorisized.

Gaming footers[]

Hi, Dorle!

I was wondering if you had an opinion on this site being included in the new gaming footers? We'd love for the Shadowrun community to be included!

Best regards,

Yes. I would like, to be included there. - I think the category Role Playing Game may match. And the Forge of Empires Wiki should be in the Strategy Games Category. --Dorle ... aka "KäptnKarel" in Arvahall, Dinegu, Eldenborough, Greifental, Houndsmoor, Jaims & Korch!

Consider Shadowrun listed and approved! Thanks :) Raylan13 (talk) 19:59, September 24, 2015 (UTC)

Shadowrun Sega Genesis Source Code?[]

Hi,

I was reading the Shadowrun Sega Genesis Wiki page about Criminal Records and noticed juicy little tidbits like 

dice_hits = roll_dices(number = attr_intelligence,
                       target = 6
                      )

Is this from the game's source code? Any idea where I could find the whole source code? I'd love to look at it. I'm not a full-fledged programmer but I know enough to read along with the code. Thanks!


P.S. I was a big fan of the Second Edition tabletop RPG, and really enjoyed playing the Genesis game because it tried so hard to mirror those rules. That's why I'm so interested in the source code to see how the rules were implemented at the code level.

I don't have any Idea. I didn't write the article.

Hi Dorle, thanks for the welcome. I've wanted to get on here and add to the cannon material for a while but wasn't sure how to do it. I thought I would just log on and start experimenting. BTW, this "talk" board seems a little awkward to use, any other options for discussing things? 5:30pm EST April 26th, 2018

This page - https://shadowrun.fandom.com/wiki/Shadowrun_Prehistory_Timeline - is almost entirely non-canon and has been copied over from the source blog without permission, in violation of your terms of use, copyright, and your licensing terms. I added a notice to that effect on the page and on the talk page. The page was reverted without reply on the talk page. The fact that a portion seems to have been accidentally left out of the middle of one paragraph is an additional indication of carelessness.

As I have since pointed out on the talk page, virtually nothing in that timeline is canon. It was written as background information for an early-edition shadowrun campaign and posted for the benefit of the old players. It really doesn't belong on a Shadowrun Wiki except, perhaps, in a "personal campaign" section - and even then only with permission. Could you please correct this situation?
