They still use decks in SRR.

No, this game takes place in 2054; so it is still a couple of decades before the Emergence. There are no technomancers and/or otaku, just regular deckers.

Why does that one guy refer to himself as a technomancer in the campaign?

Don't quote me on this, but I would say it's a bit of foreshadowing to the future and a nod to future developments within the world. I don't remember ever actually seeing Samedi, so I have no idea if he was actually using a deck or not.

Samedi's just a normal decker using the term to talk himself up. At that point in the timeline, Technomancer is just a word. People have used it long before Shadowrun did and it's really just a word that sounds like it means "wizard with technology". If Samedi was still in the biz by the time the big Technomancer scares started coming up in the early 2070s, he'd probably have done the smart thing and stopped calling himself a technomancer.

On the writing front, I think they just slipped the word in as a nod to 4e.

Big fan of SR1 through SR5. As a 20+ year fan of the game I have to say I really like SRR. Very impressed. Hope SR Online is good

Came out sometime last year, can't remember exactly when. They've brought back deckers and some of the classic slang. And the priority system for character-generation.
