The Railroad Job
Welcome to the Railroad Job Wiki!
The Railroad Job is a Shadowrun campaign set at the start of 2072, it is intended as a sandbox style game where the players are free to pursue their own goals within certain guidelines.
- The campaign is run on a persistent world concept, NPCs have their own lives, motivations, abilities, and opposition is
notmoderated for the PCs.
- Players are expected to create characters familiar with the shadowrunning lifestyle unless granted special permission by the GM.
- A certain level of proactivity is expected rather than conforming to the “run of the week” format. eg. planning your own heists, getting even, advancing your standing within a crime family.
- Pink Mohawk vs Black Trench coat. Pink Mohawk refers to a style of play that is more campy action movie (Kill Bill, Austin Powers) while Black Trench coat is more (Bourne Identity). We will strive for a Black Trench coat style of play but allow for the occasional cool moment a la hong kong gun fu etc.

Welcome to your wiki!
This is your wiki Main Page. It serves as a starting point for your wiki. From here you can begin organizing your campaign!
To get you started, here are some examples of what you can do with the wiki. To see how these work, click on the ‘Edit’ button at the bottom and just start playing around. Don’t worry, you won’t break anything.
Creating a new page
To create a new page, just make a name and surround it with double square brackets like so: A New Page. When you save the page, the link will show up and you can click on it to create the new page.
Linking to existing pages
To link to existing pages, use the same double square brackets. For example, here’s a link to this page: Main Page
Linking to a page with different text
If you don’t want to use the page’s name as the link text, you can specify your own text by placing a vertical bar | and the link text in the link like so: Linking with different text
Linking to characters
For PCs and NPCs in your campaign, the easiest thing is to use the PC/NPC Link Lookup in the sidebar to the right. It’s quite handy! Otherwise, the links behave much like a wiki link, just with a colon at the start.
HTML and Textile
To style things how you want, you can use either HTML (with some restrictions) or a simple formatting language called Textile. It’s up to you, but Textile is pretty easy, while simultaneously allowing for lots of customization.
