Shadowrun 6 support for Foundry VTT

Everyone makes mistakes – mine was recently looking at how to actually implement roleplaying support in Foundry 🙂 .

For those of you who have no idea what I’m talking about, Foundry VTT is a “Virtual Tabletop”, comparable to Roll20, Astral Tabletop, and other tools of that nature. All of these systems have their strengths and weaknesses, but Foundry VTT is my personal favorite.

At the time of my mistake, there was no game system for Splittermond, nor for Shadowrun. A grievance we wanted to remedy – unfortunately, while we are both experienced Java developers, we have zero experience with web development and the documentation for Foundry, if any, was not made for people like us.

We tried it anyway – first for Splittermond, but coincidentally someone else came up with the idea at the same time, so we didn’t want to compete there, so we ended up working on Shadowrun. Since it’s just a side project and we’re not well-versed in the technologies used, it’s taking a while, but it’s coming along.
