Shadowrun Rat's Nest: Trolls and Ghosts

New stuff from the Rat's Nest here and here.

The second entry is the result of a massive play by mail game I've been playing with the GM over the last week or so. It's enormous fun, even though it has kept us awake until 4am occasionally (just one more mail...one more).
I find play by mail useful for character development. Things you want to do with your character that don't have a place during the actual sessions or that would just slow down things too much for the other players. It also gives you the chance to write about the character's thoughts and feelings much more clearly than you can usually bring them across when sitting around the table.

I highly recommend adding play by mail to your campaign if you want some serious character development, but be warned: it's a time suck.
