|Fields of Fire|
Fields of Fire is a nice little book for gun enthusiasts. It doesn't really
add much to the Shadowrun world other than guns, guns, guns. That, and it does
have a really nifty index with a fairly complete list of cyberware and other
equipment published in Shadowtech, Street Samurai Catalog, and
the main SRII book itself. Its rules section offers incomprehensible
rules about fighting with two weapons (as I read them, the better you are in
your Ambidexterity skill, the poorer your TN# are?), rappelling, and sketchy
information about 'small units tactics', which are rules covering the new
communications gear made available in FoF (as it is affectionately known among
us Shadowrun junkies).
If you want more guns (and most of us do, don't we?), FoF fits the bill fairly
perfectly. If you want rules expansions such as those offered in Awakenings,
Shadowtech or, indeed, Street Samurai Catalog, you'll have to look
The SR3 rough equivalent of this book is the Cannon Compendium.
