Huh, never had a Troll with an axe in my games... Shotguns all the time though. Maybe they decided on a new thing?
I'd love to get in on a new SR4 game, but my wife dislikes the combat system so if my group started one, she'd sit it out. Also, everyone expects me to run it and I'd really like to be a player again. Haven't been on in quite some time.
Though if I did run, I'd go with my "Second Civil War" concept where the UCAS marched down to the CAS to re-annex it.
