Wages of War
Welcome to the web home of the collective persistent Shadowrun game called Wages of War. Wages is an attempt to create a closely-knit group of temporary tabletop games telling the story of a time period of Seattle in the Shadowrun universe.
How does it work?
Wages of War is managed by several Game Masters who pull from a large collection of players to fill out the roster for each “run” they would like to oversee. A GM has an idea for a run, then sends out mail including place, time, approximate number of sessions the run is likely to take, and the general build of what a successful group of runners would look like in terms of group roles. The players then respond if they wish to take part, and the GM puts together the group.
Can I make a character?
If you live in Seattle and have a person in the group who can give you a character reference to the GM staff, you can certainly create a character. The more the merrier.
Can I be a GM, or add a group I’m already running to the shared story?
Well, if you want to join the GM staff, you need to play in the game for a while so the staff can get an idea of how well we’d work with you. The same goes for if you would like to add a regular game you are running to our shared world. Of course, you are always welcome to use the events of our world as flavor for your own.
Where do I start?
I recommend checking out the following pages in order if you’d like to join our game.
