Three new books for Shadowrun, Sixth World hit the virtual bookshelves today (and in one case, the retail bookshelves as well)! That means you have all sorts of options for your Shadowrun fun. Let’s run down what’s available!
First up is Null Value (Catalyst shop, DriveThruRPG), a Threats book focused on the Matrix. It should be available in brick-and-mortar stores as well as online right now! Want to know what dangers lurk in those virtual realms, or what opportunities for partnerships await? This book is your guide! Here are more details:
Shoot straight, conserve ammo—shadowrunners often think about threats in terms of guns and bullets. That’s thinking too small. Why shoot someone when you can drain their entire bank account without coming anywhere near them? Or you can burn whatever ID they’re using, forcing them to restrict their movements and travel? Or you can broadcast their current location to all their enemies, so that a bullet still finds them, but you don’t have to fire it.
All this and more can happen in the Matrix. From hacker and technomancer groups to rogue AIs to mysterious entities, the Matrix is full of threats shadowrunners need to know about. This book lists ten of them that can fuel campaigns, character development, and more in any Shadowrun game.
Null Value is a threats sourcebook for Shadowrun, Sixth World.
Next up is Lifestyles of the Shadowy & Infamous (Catalyst shop, DriveThruRPG), an advanced rulebook for those of you who want more lifestyle options! Here are the basics:
Live a Little!
When the job is done and the battle won, or at least when you’ve managed to not entirely bleed out, it’s good to have a place to go. Lifestyles of the Shadowy & Infamous provides rules to flesh out your doss, making it truly what you want it to be. Do you want someone to tidy up the place while you’re away? A place with extra privacy, whether it be physical, Matrix, or astral? Or maybe just a place near your favorite club? The options are here, as well as rules on the effects of these options. Open the book and build your dream home! Or at least a place you can afford with minimal rodents!
Lifestyles of the Shadowy & Infamous is for use with Shadowrun, Sixth World.
Finally, we have a new mission, One Stone, Two Birds (Catalyst shop, DriveThruRPG)! Journey back to Neo-Tokyo for a job that will require finesse, subtlety, and maybe a few punches to the face:
Cross and Doublecross
Mr. Johnson has been working overtime on their scheme this time. There is a prototype to steal, there are people to frame, and there is the whole delicate balance of Neo-Tokyo etiquette to navigate. Skilled runners can make some valuable contacts and a fine amount of nuyen. Less-skilled runners might find themselves on a flight out of town in short order—possibly in a pine box in the cargo hold.
SRM 10-02 One Stone, Two Birds is a Shadowrun Mission dual-statted for use in both Shadowrun, Sixth World and Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.
