The Shadowland BBS is the place where the shadow community goes to discuss everything and anything related to the shadows. Who's frelling who over, who's planning what projects, what's going on in the Sixth World and how runners can make money off of this.
Shadowland is content driven and is meticulously maintained to keep discussions on-topic. Any connection that either that goes off-topic, advertises their services, or surpasses the megapulse ratio of 2.5/1 text/comment has their access rerouted to Shadowcell, an open forum.
((FastJack implies that the Shadowland BBS has been destroyed since the Crash 2.0. There is some evidence that some portion of the Shadowland BBS has survived as evidenced by FastJack's initial post introducing the 4th edition core book.))
