In this episode we talk about the red headed step child of the Shadowrun RPG Universe Riggers. We discuss what makes a rigger beyond just a fancy ride you need a Rigger Command Console, a Control Rig, and a vehicle with a Rigger Interface. We talk about what a Decker can and can’t do to make a Riggers life hell, as well as the dangers of a Technomancer. We cover how to make the most effective Drone Rigger and why you should always let the Rigger drive. We cover the must have skills and some nasty tricks you can do. We also spend some time talking about the chase combat system and what it means to crash.

We hope this episode answers some questions for you and we are certain it will bring new questions. As such never hesitate to contact us with your questions or comments:

We spent the day talking about the Matrix and all of the aspects that make it up since that is one of the areas that still seems to catch the most people. We look at the terminology of the Matrix from Devices, Host, Pans to MARKS and how a Decker procures them. We also look at the Grid Overwatch Division, and how they are cracking down on hackers. We even spent some time looking at Technomancers and how they can play a vital role in a successful run.
