Hunt for a Kicker thread

Is there a good thread on writing kickers?  I've tried to search but keep getting a 500 error.

My group has been playing Shadowrun lately.  We've switching gears, retiring the characters we learned the system on, and building new ones.  I'm the most theory oriented guy, but everyone has an interest in characterization and character driven play.  I've mentioned kickers as a way to get things started and drive early action and they want to give it a try.  I have not been able to get search working myself.  I could use advice on writing them and on incorporating them.  Some sessions will still be mission driven, but others will be designed around character intentions.

Wow, I had to try like 6 times to make this reply, anyway...

Hi Rylen,

My latest podcast happens to be about Kickers and Bangs. If you listen to it and you still have questions, drop a comment on my website about what it doesn't explain adequately and I'll try to be more helpful. This will help me when I eventually go back and rerecord.

As far as searching the forge try using this term on google:


That will search the Forge via google, and you can use the cached pages if this website is being slow or unresponsive. Good luck.

There are "Kickers for Dummies" part 1 and 2. You can relieve the server of some load by searching google with the following search request: "Kickers for Dummies".
