After Hours: Just Mall Ninja Things

A discussion of tactical blowguns during a Blades in the Dark game got me thinking about mall ninjas. A mall ninja is a person who loves ‘tactical’ gear, weird knives and useless accessories for firearms. I got Birk, Noah, and Baz together to look through some Shadowrun and Cyberpunk source books to find the equipment most suitable for mall ninjas in our world.

RPPR Illustrated: Night’s Black Agents – Tribes of Tokyo

Patsy has depicted our vampire-slaying hijinks for this month’s illustration.

“Here in their secret hideout/boat cabin, surrounded by trophies,  research materials and assorted gangster supplies, the ‘Ronin’ are  combining their skills to hatch another incredibly ambitious and  over-complicated heist plan.

From left- Shinji the  ascended-fanboy hacker, Ito the soft-spoken former Yakuza, Haru the  iron-willed mastermind, Kazuo the Reverb-addicted forger, and Shiro the  ex-CIA badass.

Many thanks owed, of course, to Crazon/@reviewcultist for the original character designs.”
