The Amazing Fred has finally launched a Shadowrun campaign, and holy crap am I excited about it. If you aren’t familiar with Shadowrun, it’s a role-playing game much like Dungeons and Dragons at it’s core. But the setting is completely different.

The setting sun, with rosy fire,
caressed us with its beams.
A courting couple on the beach,
