No, the Mythbuster Plan is when everything else fails, blow it up with a really cool-looking explosion.

....or was it your original? :shiftyeyes:

That's too easy. Make it their underpants, at least.
I ran a session on Sunday in which I secretly introduced the idea and had a list of about 15 'achievements'. One of my players actually got one, I can't for the life of me remember which one, and the rest of the sesh had the added fun of them trying weird and wonderful things in an effort to get more. Everyone seemed to enjoy the game and some even hinted about coming up with their own additions, I'm not sure whether the legs will last beyond a few sessions but we will see.

Once again a huge thanks to everyone who posted.
Excellent, everyone. These are great fun.

Although I doubt my group would ever do anything like this, we do have a sort of indirect achievement system. After every session, each player gives a single karma point to one other player. You can guess the sort of things that earn you a point from your fiends- it's also a good way to subtly reinforce or discourage certain behaviours.

Here's some more. All but a couple of these have actually happened during runs:

Arm For An Arm: Lose an arm to an enemy's detachable, explosive cyberarm.
Bilbo: Acquire an item stolen from a Dragon's hoard.
Death From Above!: Re-capture some escaped Drop Bears, and keep your sanity.
Help Me Take This Mask Off: Banish the spirit of your own father.
You Can Tell Me: Seduce an opposing Shadowrunner and convince him to tell you how much he hates his job. Bonus if you can keep him from running into the firefight when it starts.
Down, Boy: Glue a troublesome canid foe to the floor. Bonus points if you do it to amuse your Cat Shaman.
We're The Good Guys: Rescue some innocent bystanders during a run, and convince them that you and your fellow shadowrunners are a legitimate military team. Bonus points if they announce it in an interview on the news.
I'm Batman: Perform a daring escape by parachuting from the top of a skyscraper.
Ash: Escape a sticky situation by amputating one (or more) of your limbs with a chainsaw.
Watch That Next Step, Doc.: Forego the elevator in favour of the stairs, then find proof that it was a REALLY good idea to do so.
Sneaker for the dead: Sneak through a room full of Shedim, steal something they're guarding, and get back out.
Hit By A Smooth Criminal: Pickpocket something from the lady you're flirting with.
Crocodile Hunter: Use your vast knowledge of parazoology to critical effect.
Spidermaaaaan!: Steal an enemy's weapon with your grapple gun.
