Hey kids, this has been a long time coming but it’s time to make an announcement. It’s been over a year since our last episode, and just about that long since we last recorded. I hate to say it, but we are officially in Pod fade status. I know, it sucks, but right now we’re suffering from the long standing cycle Hiddengrid has gone under over the last couple of years. With the plans we’ve had about looking at a reboot falling through, we are officially closing shop for now.

While Zen’s Hiddengrid was the first Shadowrun focused podcast, and Hiddengrid: Sixth World Chronicles was the first full actual play show, I’m proud to see so many other shows out there waving the banner. So many others charging into those bug infested ruins or the drek storm some dragon’s throwing down. I wish I could say we’re the reason they exist, but I know most of them are out there because of just how awesome a game Shadowrun and its community are. Okay, let me pretend a little that we’re the reason why. The pride, it needs the support. If you haven’t given them a chance I really suggest you check them out, especially Critical Glitch and The Arcology Podcast. Some of the best folks in this “not-quite yet the sixth world thing” are running those feeds. They’re worthy of your time.

So where do we go from here? Well, most of the folks you’ve listened to have moved on to other things. A few are hitting new heights in life, such as moving cross country, celebrating new lives with new possibilities, and doing a lot more writing. Others are digging into projects and goals they’ve been planning for years. I’ll leave it for them to add what paths they wish to share, but for me, I’m trying my hand at something I’ve been planning for years.

See, like many of you, I’ve been a table top gamer for decades, but for me one of the first things I tried to do was make my own. I’ve had several styles I’ve worked on over the years, but I’ve never finished one. I’m trying to change that now. It’s in its infancy, but I’m podcasting the process of making the new system from start to finish over on makeanrpg.com. I’d dig if you could come over, maybe even take part in some of the testing.

As for the Hiddengrid and the Sixth World Chronicles? Well those files aren’t going anywhere, and you’re always welcome to revisit Zen, Andrew, Midas, Entei, Samons, Nikki, Dan, Lena, Jess, and of course, Eve Donovan, any time you’d like. Someday dice will be rolled far too close to the microphone again, and those recordings will return to this feed. For now though, this commlink is going dark.

Give yourselves a piece of karma for every episode you listened to along the way, two per each of the echoes you listened to. If your GM asks, tell them nulloperations said it was okay, and if they have a problem, well, let Numitor know. He’ll sort them out*.

Until then, take care.

*Listener karma void for mission play. I don’t dare mess with those gamemasters. They’re quite powerful in the sixth world.

This week Dreamchipper continues with a change in background noise. Apologies up front.

In the adventure, the players find their second major lead and a huge source of information (and maybe firepower) for their job. First though, let’s see how this hacking attempt goes.

This week Dreamchipper continues with a change in roster. Mr Black is going into temporary hiatus and a new guy is taking up his mantel. It’s a bit of a retcon as Tex appears whole cloth in Black’s place.

In the adventure, the players look for more clues and find a potential ally who might just lead them to the resting place of the chips Urlan hired them to obtain.

Dreamchipper is another great “This is a Shadowrun” Adventure. It’s also an example of combining strong social activity with a mix of heavy violence. It’s all fun and games when the gang goes looking for trouble and finds it at every step. Dreamchipper provides and with a revolving cast of players, it’s a great spark for adventures to come.\

And remember, the only constant is change.

Hey! Did you know last week’s episode put us over 24 hours of audio? If you’ve listened to all the episodes so far, you’ve used up a whole day of your life. I’m so proud of you.

Harlequin: Physical concludes with our ninth session. This session was three weeks after the last so it’s rough getting rolling. The gang has most of what they need for the run, now let’s see if they can get through it without a hitch. Take a listen and see what it takes to get past some magical beasties.

Hey! Did you know last week’s episode put us over 24 hours of audio? If you’ve listened to all the episodes so far, you’ve used up a whole day of your life. I’m so proud of you.

We start up on of the great classic adventures this week, with the multi-campaign Harlequin. Harlequin is one of the legendary adventures built to really get players into Shadowrun. The adventure is designed to be played in a series of related adventures over the lifetime of a group’s runs. As the players take part in the adventure they gain clues of a larger meta-plot that’ll be resolved down the road.

I’d also like to welcome another new voice this adventure. Well, new in an old sense. Zendead rejoins Hiddengrid from the player side of the table, taking up the role of Shadowshot. Give him a hardy welcome.

Now, let’s go see what rabbit holes this adventure will make us jump down.

In between the sessions of a run, a few players decided they just couldn’t make it and we had some down time. Rather than just not run a game, I ran part of the crew through a Shadowrun classic. Food Fight comes from the first edition core book and it’s even had a 4th edition version we hacked up and pasted 2050 rules onto. It’s a ton of fun and has some lasting effects no one expected.

Enjoy the diversion, and grab something quick to eat with Food Fight.

Jump in and enjoy, Silver Angel, Session 2, Part 1.
