Full Version: Availability Chart
Dumpshock Forums > Discussion > Shadowrun
Ok, how was this list made? I went through the equipment of the most commonly-used books page by page. Yes, I'm aware of the tables listed at the back of the books, but I wanted to add something more to it. The books used in this are Man & Machine, Cannon Companion, Matrix 3 and Rigger 3. Matrix 3 was a purely cursory thing - I definitely missed some stuff related to deck creation or something. After each listing is a page number for where you can find it at. What is NOT listed here is higher grade versions of lower-grade cyberware. That's a project in and of itself.

I was torn on listing the availability of vehicle-scale weapons and vehicle components. Why? Because by canon you don't even CONSIDER the availability of components if it's built into the vehicle, aka comes standard. Because you can potentially start with ANY of these, I wondered whether listing it for the purposes of balance was worthwhile. Then I remembered most GMs don't smoke so much crack that they would let a player start with a fully-automatic assault canon just because the rules say they can, so I decided to list them all anyways.

The only time I list higher-rating versions of things is when it uses a non-linear advancement scheme. For example, Remote Control ECCM is listed because rating 1-3 all availability 4 while rating 4-6 is rating 6.

What is the purpose of this? It's to inform GMs of what kind of equipment will become available if they loosen up the availability guidelines. You may want to do so, especially if you run your games more like action movies than the stealth implied in canon. Even if you do run a total stealth game, you may still want to loosen it up to 9. There's a couple of nifty stealth things in there that your players will love you for implementing. I was contemplating running a high-end mercenary campaign, jungle warfare and all that jazz and wanted to know the consequences of opening up each availability rating.

The only thing writing this has taught me is that the designers hate odd numbers.

Oh, things are listed in this order for each availability level: Stuff from the BB, then CC, M&M, R3, and I think I just threw whatever caught my eye in M3 on at the end. I'm not sure I actually found anything in there.

Who knows, maybe someone out there will make use of this thing or add onto it things I didn't bother adding on.

*I don't list assault AV cannon ammo because the availability of all assault cannons is equal to or greater than 16, the availability of AV assault cannon rounds.
**I'm not listing the ballista missiles because they all have availabilitys equal to or less than the launcher. It's fairly pointless to have ammo and nothing to fire it with.
***The M-12 has a problem opposite the ballista in that it is listed at 12, but all mortar rounds have an availability of 18. That is why I list it at 18, as there is no point in owning a launcher but no mortars.
*.*Yeah, I list rating 1 delta clinics. I felt it to be an important milestone - It means your characters can now implant themselves with deltaware. If they can come up with a supplier for the 'ware itself, they will not neccessairily be beholden to them to also perform the neccessary installation and upkeep.
Wow...definately will come in handy for me smile.gif

Thanks. How long did writing this list take?
I was contemplating running a ganger campaign, so I wrote up this chart to see what would be banned at each availability level.

Simply put, it is totally worthless to put on availability limits on what players can have because the availability in SR is bullshit. The AK-97 is availability 3. That's the same as an Ares Predator. Unless you lower it to 2, forcing your players to use nothing but Holdout Pistols and melee weapons, they will STILL be able to have automatic weapons of virtually the same effectiveness as any normal runner campaign. I didn't even bother to add CC to this. I completely ignored all of the communications and such. I defy anyone to find a situation where starting with a *GASP* VIDEO CAMERA would break the game.

Your only hope for running a low-power is to just ban certain types of weapons.
