With the exception to a few unique Shadowrun Positive Qualities (Shadowrun 77-80), all the Qualities listed in the Shadowrun books have an equivalent Advantage in the GURPS.
In the case where there isn’t an exact match, combining Advantages will get the result your looking for. These will be listed in detail under the Meta-Traits.
For those few Qualities that are unique to the Shadowrun world , I have created them and made available based off similar advantages already available.
For a full description on any of the listed advantages please see their respective original publisher. Page references will be listed for your convenience.
