Description Edit | History

Cover: Turn on, jack in, drop out. Wunderkind Corey Macourek put together our technocover.

The theme of this issue was technology, featuring:

* Virtual Seattle update: news on Shadowrun tournament rules
* PBeM games: tired of waiting on snail mail? Take your games into the electronic age
* Character Generation Programs: Need PCs/NPCs fast? Let your computer do the work

Any sufficiently advanced technology...

will be very expensive to fix.
