A Word From Our Sponsor
Shadowrun is the creation of many people, and obviously not all the information that goes behind the scenes is not public knowledge - here we try and peel back the black curtain and show you a little of what's going on behind the scenes, some design theory behind past and upcoming books, information on what conventions we'll be represented at, and a little bit of intel on the people behind the books. To start with, you can read brief biographies of Rob and Adam, and look at a list of upcoming Events and Conventions that will have official or sponsored Shadowrun events.
- Rob Boyle: July 4th, 2001 - Rob talks on the future of Shadowrun.
- Adam Jury: July 4th, 2001 - Adam talks about the launch of the website, what's coming up in the future, and explains some design decisions.

The Developer's Say
A regular feature since Shadowrun, Third Edition, The Developer's Say is the Line Developers place to do some 'official' talking about the product - a simple introduction, how it came to be, design theories, and that sort of thing.
