Group DescriptionThis group includes games based on the tabletop RPG Shadowrun, created in 1989 by FASA Corporation. The Shadowrun universe combines elements of science fiction, cyberpunk, and fantasy. It is set in late 21st century and depicts a futuristic world where magic has re-emerged, co-existing with nanotechnology and a global computer network known as the Matrix. Many humans practice magic as shamans, and non-human races such as trolls, elves, dwarves, as well as other mythological creatures (e.g. dragons) play an active role in contemporary urban life. Powerful mega-corporations are commonly portrayed as the enemies in Shadowrun.
