RPG: Elektra for Shadowrun

Back when I discovered Shadowrun, a futuristic version of Dungeons and Dragons, I started to convert Marvel and DC's urban characters to that system for use in my campaigns.

Elektra was the first one I ever did for Shadowrun. She was also the only one that I ever documented for that system.

Role-players could argue about which system is the best for near-future, cyberpunk adventuring. And they'll mostly agree that Shadowrun was the best of it's time. Wizards of the Coast has introduced a Modern version of their D20 system, as well as a supernatural expansion- Urban Arcana, which together eliminates the need for a Shadowrun product in today's market.

I do reccomend at least checking it out, though. The character generation was one of the most original concepts. And it is very inspiring.

Anyway, I now present to you...
