A long series of small scratches mar one wall. A note tacked to the wall reads "In the river lies a girl, in the water swims her blood." The sound of a child laughing echoes through the corridor.

May has passed so quickly but managed to get a lot of nominated posts that were all really cool to read. The judges had a hard time having to decide on one winning post but the decision has been made: congrats to PapaHuck!!!

There's a new podcast episode! Join Bhelogan and Imveros as they discuss the details of Outplay the System rev 2022, and get a crash course in Shadowrun lore! Learn about the "gritty retro future", where Imveros' name comes from, and lots more.
