There is a wealth of lore and history to the world of Shadowrun, beyond the scope of this website. A detailed timeline is available here, but if you want the most basic of primers, check out the bullet points:

  • Large corporations have become more powerful than governments, and are essentially above the law.
  • “Nuyen” is the standard world currency.
  • Technology has advanced significantly, allowing direct neural interfaces, cyber limbs, and many more wonders to become commonplace.
  • The internet has been replaced by “The Matrix”, capable of transmitting massive amounts of data almost anywhere near instantly.
  • Magic returned to the world in an event known as “The Awakening”. Roughly 2% of the population is magically active.
  • The Awakening triggered genetic changes in some of the worlds population, ushering in the age of Metahumanity: Orcs, Trolls, Dwarves, Elves, and other, lesser known creatures now make up roughly 35% of the worlds population alongside humans.
  • Extremely powerful and intelligent beings known as “Dragons” are spread out around the world, each with their own agenda. For example, a kindly Dragon known as Dunkelzahn was President until his assassination 10 hours after his inauguration. A ruthless Dragon named Lofwyr owns one of the top companies in the world, Saeder-Krupp, and is the richest individual in the world.
