'''Shadowrun''' is a cyberpunk-urban fantasy cross-genre role-playing game, set in the years 2050-2070 following a great cataclysm that has brought magic back to the world, just as it begins to embrace the marvels (and dangers) of technologies such as cyberspace, omnipresent computer networks, genetic engineering, and the merger of man and machine called cyberware. Despite its departure in some respects from the "mainstream" cyberpunk genre, ''Shadowrun'' is perhaps the best-known and most popular RPG for this genre outside of R. Talsorian Games's Cyberpunk 2020 http//en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cyberpunk_2020.
