THIS PLOTLINE HAS WRAPPED, A SEQUEL WILL EMERGE WHEN I FIX MY COMPUTER

Here are the main consequences:

  • Telestrian and Horizon do not like each other. Corp Vs. Corp operations have increased
  • Horizon's HR Department has been infiltrated by a cabal of Blood Mages
  • Caverns, ruins, and blood-magic phenomenon occasionally emerge along the West-Coast


This plotline will take place primarily in Los Angeles, but will have side plots that range from the Baja Peninsula to Portland. It concerns the re-emergence of profane magic from an ancient 4th world empire, and the effects that this has in the 6th world. Primary locations shall include:

  • Los Angeles
  • The Deep Lacuna

There will be two primary run hooks. GMs may asume a high degree of freedom when utilizing these:

1.) The re-emergence of magic/artifacts/creatures from the ancient empire of Z'Thal, and the potential re-awakening of the Z'Thalian Blood-Leyline. Runs that follow this hook should tend towards an "Indiana Jones" feeling. Some variations of this hook might include:

  • Explore this area
  • Recover this artifact
  • Destroy this creature
  • Rescue these missing people
  • Metaplanes

2.) The "cold" (or potentially "hot") war that hook #1 sparks between Horizon and Telestrian Industries over control of Z'Thalian assets. Because Horizon outmatches Telestrian in almost every way, this will be a very asymmetrical conflict. Runs that use this hook can fall into more of the traditional Shadowrun feeling (either "mohawk" or "trenchcoat"). Runs using this hook can utilize any of the standard Corp-Vs-Corp tropes.

  • The Dawkins Group
  • Tir Ghosts
  • If too many Telestrian-Vs-Horizon runs go loud, this will inevitably ignite a hot war between Tir and PCC. Please note in the wiki-page or AAR if a particular run goes loud as I will be rolling dice every time to see if the conflict escalates...
