The Price of Conviction: Coyotes Crusade - Chosen for HBS Shadowlab #1!!!!

Hoi, chummers! Some of you may already know me from the Shadowrun Universe boards. I'm Masque and welcome to the first module in the PoC series. Coyotes Crusade sets the stage for a series of stories (an Anthology of sorts) that are connected and intertwined together at various levels to eventually reach a collision point.

If you have not completed Dead Mans Switch you may want to do so. Though Coyotes Crusade is very spoiler light you will require the proper perspective on both her and Paco to appreciate it.

In this story you'll be at the helm of Coyote as she pursues her vendetta against the BTL industry. This module is assuming that her vengeance path was taken and that Ginos life was lost. I have also made the decision to roll Coyote and Paco back in strength for balance reasons. I wanted to make a gritty mission involving gangs and such and couldn't justify insanely strong Halloweeners. As a side benefit, I found it somewhat more tactical.

What you can expect from Coyotes Crusade:

* A fun, lore compliant linear mission that paves the road for future content.
* Strong writing and an original story with great care taken to maintain the integrity of the canon characters involved. I also attempt to bridge the gap between DMS and the Lone Wolf novel in regards to Paco.
* A mission where you can literally go in guns blazing at every turn OR intimidate and legwork your way through the entire thing (except for the final encounter) through dialog. Dialog options aren't always obvious, sometimes reactions may surprise!
*Conversations that matter! To current and future episodes.
*Replayability. Some times new and interesting roleplaying moments happen when you take a different course of action or the more difficult road.
*An Easter egg or two for series veterans.
*The game is over if Coyote or Paco die! Since buying a Doc Wagon might be the difference between hiring a Shadowrunner and not... Extra care must be taken and foolish risks are punished!

Please report any bugs might encounter or any spelling issues. This can be considered a polished Beta for all intents and purpose. I was learning the editor on this one and I have to say, it's been a hell of an experience. I hope you enjoy the first mission of The Price of Conviction!

Please leave feedback either here or at the Shadowrun Universe board!
