Ad-Blog plus: Wanted! – a classified ad for Shadowrun

Ad-Blog plus, Day 1:

Wanted! To buy or trade. A summer day. First summer days preferred, but not a requirement. Price negotiable. Only earnest offers. Contact: Gila Monster.

Classified ad by a talismonger looking for a quite exotic component for a quite exotic focus enchantment. Aside from hard honest nuyen, other similarly exotic materials, future favours or services (such as weighing a runner’s karma) can be negotiated for as payment.

I am quite fond of breaking the largely transparent, understandable, predictable frame of Shadowrun’s magic by having the unexpected, hard – or not – explainable pop up suddenly (and not just at the climax of some run or world shattering quest or other). Also, today I noted for the first time that “gila monster” is an anagram of “talismonger”. Finally, in my head it’s her who posted the ad.

Creating an in-game-classified ad every day for 31 days:
More explanation
Better explanation (and logos!) (in German)

Heroines and heroes of the day:
Dnalor (in German)
Clawdeen (in German)

Both of these were ahead of me by quite a margin in getting the first Ad-Blog plus ads out there.
