Rewind and Reload
Chrome eyes. Computers called "decks." Big hair, big cyberlimbs and bigger guns. It's Shadowrun in the year it all started. Take a step back to Shadowrun's roots with Shadowrun 2050, a book that combines Fourth Edition rules — the smoothest, most accessible rule set Shadowrun has ever had - with the setting that first made the Sixth...

Digging in the Dirt
Politics is only a dirty word when it's not working for you. For shadowrunners, politics aren’t about debates and position papers—they’re about taking some of the money people are throwing around.
During election season, when power is up for grabs, people are willing to do just about anything to get a piece of the pie. If you can help them get what they... [click here for more]
Blood Will Out!
Shadowrunners have a lot of rules, and each and every one of them can be overruled by the proper amount of nuyen. So when shadowrunners talk about “never trusting an elf,” that’s more of a bargaining position than anything else. Luckily for them, some elves have plenty of scratch they can use as a persuasive tool. And for the tasks they have in... [click here for more]
The Long Shadows of War
This is the way it works—if you want to know what the main cause of World War II was, look at World War I. If you want to understand the United States of America in the late twentieth century, make sure you understand the Vietnam War and all of its ramifications. The point is this: Even if you didn’t fight in a war, even if you weren’t born when the... [click here for more]
Things to See, Things Not to See
Sometimes you look at a catalog to see if there's anything in it that you want. And sometimes you look to see what you need to avoid.
You'll find both types of things in here. The tech heads of the Sixth World remain busy, coming up with more ways to slaughter metahumans with maximum efficiency. And they have plenty of battlegrounds in the world where they can test... [click here for more]
Nothing Is Free
Guns and ammo cost nuyen. Mastering martial arts takes time. And learning how to use explosives without blowing yourself up takes patience and a steady hand. These weapons and more are out there, waiting for you. You have the chance to use them to become deadlier, faster, more dangerous than the next guy—and more dangerous than you were yesterday. You’ll have to pay the... [click here for more]
The War Within
Not all has been right in our shadows of late. Especially in the dark shadows of my mind.
Those were among FastJack’s parting words to JackPoint when he left, the victim of a condition that divided his mind against itself. And the condition is spreading. Across the Sixth World, people’s minds are in schism, as new personalities emerge and battle the old. The world is in... [click here for more]
It’s been a tense couple of years (or couple of decades, if we’re being accurate) in the Sixth World. Aztlan and Amazonia have been slugging it out. Great dragons have turned on each other, testing old alliances and forging new ones. Governor Kenneth Brackhaven of Seattle is facing pressure unlike ever he’s ever seen, and scandals seem on the verge of... [click here for more]
Claws At Your Throat
Never, ever deal with a dragon. Shadowrunners have heard that dictum so often, they frequently say those words in their sleep. But what the aphorism forgets to tell you is this—what if you don’t have a choice?
The tension between dragons has been growing, and the big lizards are throwing every weapon they have at each other, including shadowrunners—especially... [click here for more]
