Descent into Shadows

By on 23 February 2008

Descent into Shadows is an adventure designed to be run by a moderately experienced Games Master (GM) in order to introduce players who are both new to role-playing and / or new to the Shadowrun game.

Play duration is variable and can be from 3 to 8 hours depending upon how the players decide to play things. This adventure can be run as a demonstration game at conventions and other events, however if the adventure looks to be going to over run the normal 4 hour slot, the later scenarios can be omitted and the action wrapped up earlier.

About Dave McAlister

Dave has been roleplaying for over 30 years, having played and/or run most mainstream systems with the espionage genre being an early favourite. So much so that, in 1999, he started Modus Operandi. That same year he joined the Sarbreenar “Living” campaign team as their plotline controller before moving across to the Living Spycraft campaign team (as UK Regional Branch Director) in 2003. 2003 also saw the birth of UK Role Players as well as Dave’s first freelance writing appointment (co-writing World Militaries and consulting on both US Militaries and Battlegrounds, all for Spycraft).

Since then, Dave has concentrated on supporting the UK gaming scene. He has organised and run several small, one-day, events and was the RPG Area Manager for Gen Con UK in 2004. His current favourite systems are Dungeons & Dragons (specifically 5th Edition), Savage Worlds and Cinematic Unisystem. He has a (currently neglected) blog at and runs a D&D 5e SRD website at
