Character Creation Resources

There are some things floating around the internet that can be of major use to players, especially those who are new to the game. In some cases, my own included, they helped me get from 3E to 4E, and I am grateful that they are out there.

Anyhow, I highly recommend that anyone who has not played Shadowrun 4E please – PLEASE! – read through the Quick-Start rules that Catalyst Game Labs has been so kind to provide for free for all. The PDF of this document can be found by clicking this link here.

The second resource that can be very helpful in creating a character is the Chummer 4E Character Generator, which was developed by the guys at This monster character generator uses all the standard rules, and it includes gear, cyberware, qualities, and all sorts of goodies from all the books. You can also get to the Dumpshock Forums from the Chummer home page, which is especially helpful as those guys have a thread going to report bugs in the software.

When I come across more resources, I’ll put them up here.
