I've only skimmed it so far - I'm waaaay off from running it (have at least 50-60 runs before I'm at that point).

Now you've got me curious though, so I'll go read it as soon as I can (IMG:style_emoticons/default/smile.gif)

That was kind of the point.

And if it boosts sales for Missions, all the better. Might get me more gigs. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Bull, don't spoil it for everyone, you already get to beat me with my own cane because of it. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)

So far I've found a typo - does that count? (IMG:style_emoticons/default/grinbig.gif)


I hope it isn't Scene 5 you're talking about...

...I found several things that made me go *groan* actually (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)

Typos don't count. Scene Five is using a pun from a character that wasn't created by me, so no, that's not it either. Actually, that scene was partially inspired by Max Payne 2, when the "Cleaners" go after Mona Sax in the cell block. (It was also a few other odds and sods as well.).

I loved revisiting it in Max's messed up head in the video game, myself. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

You canadians and your hockey; the bike team; some (possibly unintentional) ironic npc names...

Liked some of the pop culture references, though =)

Phil was intentional. The "Mr. [Colours]" thing was just a good way to have fake names without "Mr. Smith", "Mr. Jones", "Mr. Johnson". A bit more variety.

Probably the same reason it was used in Reservoir Dogs. BTW: Mr. Pink got away free because he doesn't tip. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)

I noticed a few things will have to reread to refresh my memory.

Edit - Woohoo 1K posts!

Edit 2- Right at the beginning?

Much as I would love to include the ShadowSkool into things, so many people have added to it that I could not claim it as my own creation (Not to mention that the initial idea wasn't even mine), so I can't use it officially without a lot of paperwork going out to people. (It also prevents me from using a few characters I've used in my FanFic which, because I don't get money from it, is easier to deal with.).

Good idea, however. How did you get the idea I put in the ShadowSkool?

The title of the first chapter was Old Skool Decking, plus with the school being in the underground "where all the criminal hang out you know" with the Bible verse thrown in there, I guess I just read waaaay too far into the whole thing.

I also keep coming back to Ziggy and his description, but I can't quite put my finger on what keeps sending me back there.

No, the ShadowSkool was not the inspiration. I just wanted to bring *DARK* back to Shadowrun, and show the levels that people will stoop to in order to get what they want, and did so with a sledgehammer between the eyes, and another blow somewhere down lower.

I hope I succeeded.

That's far, far, far from the joke I put in. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/biggrin.gif)

No, but it's another reason Bull probably never wants me writing for him ever again. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/nyahnyah.gif)

Hey. I gave you feedback on DevArt, but here goes some more.

To be honest, what I was saying about the final fight might well have been me screwing up. I wasn't on the up and up helath-wise when I ran that portion of the module, and I overlooked a good deal of possibilities.
