Shadowrun works a lot better with two or more players (I play with a group of four others - I'm the Elf samurai with the heart of gold and a body dismorphic disorder [he's been body-sculpted to look less elven]. He doesn't quite look human, but he's seen as an outcast by his 'own people'. I made him for the challenge.)
Have no experience with D&D after 1st ed. Didn't enjoy it enough to continue with it.
Hey! Where'd ... Everybody ... go?
