SR5 Matrix damage is hardware damage and will take hours to repair, so can’t be fixed in the middle of a fire fight. A small message is added to the bottom of each page of the document containing your name and the shdaowrun number of your eBook purchase.

Shadowrun Shadowrun, 4th Ed. Sure you can hack in to anything given long enough, but that makes sense theres always an exploit. I don’t think that’s completely true.

Electric spells do matrix damage thus bringing to the table a magic version of data spike. You heard it from the others already. I think the SR5 rules for magic are better than SR4 rules.


I’ve been rocking Shadowrun since 2e and 5e is hands down the best Matrix yet. The year is Log in or sign up in seconds.


Each of them editiln centered around an attribute that is typically dumped in normal characters; the most important attribute for the physical limit, for instance, is Strength, though other attributes weigh in they have the same impact as Strength does alone.
