Prologue

Prologue Text

THE YEAR IS 2050
And the megaplexes are monsters casting long shadows.
When you become a shadowrunner, that’s where you live…
in the cracks between the giant corporate structures.
The megacorps are powerful in a time when power means information…
…computer information flowing in the global network called the MATRIX.

SNES Version

Leaving the SNES game running on the title screen presents the prologue. A man in a black coat gets gunned down by four gang members. As his body lies on the pavements, a fox approaches him, turns into a woman, and cards a spell on him. The fox then runs off and two morticians approach the body.

Thanks to rutgerhower for pointing out where this location is. The map is built and logic mostly functional. It will be the opening scene for the released module.

SR:R Triggers

Having some issues with the triggers. I either get Jake to stay alive, and have the rest work wrong, or kill him off and have most of it work right. In order to allow the world to help troubleshoot, here is a link to the Prologue Triggers
