New poster to the forums here. Been meaning to come on and introduce myself for a while, had school not been hectic for me. So hi!
I've been reading over the books lately, and wow. Talk about impressive. Intimidatingly so. Once done, I'm going to try and set up a game. Since there is such a depth to the entire system, what advice would you offer to someone new to the system?
Also, looking at the list of influences, which ones would be at the top of the list as having the most impact on the game, or most conceptually significant importance? For example, Warren Ellis's Global Frequency helped me immediately put Firewall in perspective.
Any other comments, tips, tricks, or whatnot would also be welcome!
