Episode 045: Data Trails

This is Critical Glitch, a Shadowrun Podcast Episode 045

Your host, The Most Dangerous Man in Gaming – Tim Patrick

Co-Host: Bob “Dr. Meatgrinder” Loper

In this episode we take a deeper look into Data Trails the “Core Matrix Hanbook”

Both Bob and myself found the book to be light on rules, and some of the rules that where included should have been moved to a dedicated e-pub to make room for more core concepts.  For a Matrix Core Handbook there was little to nothing for Technomancers absolutely nothing on their sprites.

We both found the book to be better then Run & Gun and Street Grimoire but not as polished as Run Faster. The lack of an index and intuitive chapter names still plagues the line for these reasons we both placed the book at around a C+ grade. Definitely worth getting in PDF, and you won’t feel like you wasted your money if you buy the hardback.
