    Default Shadowrun Skillsoft Titles

    Hey Hivemind, looking for an assist with a character I'm working on. Need some titles for skillsofts and activesofts. Looking for a mix of legal & shadow softs, titles more creative than "First Aid III" or "Maglock Bypassing IV". These are for a Shadowrun II game, I'll be playing an uneducated Cajun Ork combat biker who's had to suddenly relocate to England.

    What I have so far (with help from a friend):
    "Instant Briton - The Definitive Etiquette, Dialect, & Travel Guide for Colonials"
    - just what it says, simplifies playing an uneducated Cajun in England

    "Everything You Would Have Learned Your Freshman Year (If You Hadn't Been Stoned)"
    - 101 level general education chip

    "Burn Baby Burn (Arson for Fun & Profit)"
    - fire-related Chemistry & Physics, along with legal & financial concerns

    "Recreational Chemistry - The Search for the Perfect High"
    - drug manufacture, interactions, & blending (Chemistry & Medicine)

    "Productivity & Safety in the Lab"
    - ACTIVESOFT to be paired with "Recreational Chemistry"

    Cookin' Books - Accounting for Shadow Operators
    - Accounting and advanced techniques for hiding or laundering unexplainable income

    "Brooks Survival Guide"
    -Provides you with most proven and field tested military survival knowledge and technology, documented and used for official training, The Brooks Survival Manual provides step by step instruction and illustrations for surviving outdoors--survival skills every climber, hiker, hunter, runner, and soldier should know. (Wilderness Survival)

    "There's been an Accident, now what?"
    - Is meant to enable the average person to handle injuries and illness in an emergency in which modern medical facilities and professionals arenít available due to a disaster. (First Aid & Extended Care)

    "Belle Urban Movement Plan"
    - This is all about travelling from point A to point B efficiently as possible with style adding acrobatic and stylish moves, showcasing the complete freedom of movement. (Parkour)

    "The Stig"
    - Want know how to drive anywhere, any how, any speed, then this is the program for you (Drive Auto)

    -Unarmed Combat 6. Emphasizes head butts and using pint glasses as weapons. Taught by a Scot named Begby, no doubt.

    "Boggy Pint's Underground"
    -- sketchy knowsoft that purports to inform you about London underground contacts - fixers, docs, etc - in London or environs. Maybe not so up to date? Or maybe just a tube map.

    "I Smash You Face 2"
    -- level 2 martial arts skill soft by Axl Smash, physical adept

    "Lorries, Snoggin, and the Proper Side of the Road "
    -- knowsoft. Use all those local British Idioms so you don't sound like a complete idiot.

    Edit:
    "Ghosts of Hadrian's Wall (and how to avoid them)"
    A guide to killer tourist traps -- that just might save your life!
