Paying with Your Soul

Magic can burn your brain and sear your soul. It can inject power into every millimeter of your veins, or leave you a lump of ashes at the end of a dark alley. It’s dangerous, but to spellslingers in the Sixth World, it’s worth it. Because magic is power, and power in the Sixth World needs to be grabbed with both hands.

Spells, rituals, alchemical preparations, adept powers, metamagics—all of those elements and more can be used to help an Awakened shadowrunner move off the streets and get a taste of the high life. Street Grimoire has more options for Shadowrun players, along with information on magical traditions, magic societies, and the dangers and benefits of living as a spellcaster in a world where “geek the mage first” is a common adage. With more options, deeper rules, deadlier threats, and dozens of way to have fun with magic, Street Grimoire is an essential book for anyone playing Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

While it says it was updated, what I downloaded didn't have any of the errata changes in it :(

Have you checked if errata is incorporated - hint: it is not.

Is there ever going to be a hardcopy version of this again?

Our group has every other book, and the rest all seem to still be in print... just not this one.

Errata is here:

But I'd like to see it as an update to the PDF as well. :)

Get the 4e version instead. Much, much better than this.

Uhh, why? Isn't this for 5th edition?

Isn't this like saying "Get the 4th edition D&D supplement, it's better than the 5th edition one."

I'm a huge Shadowrun fan ever since 1st ED, I usually buy everything available. I would have loved to love this product but its confusing, badly implemented, internally incoherent, refers to "powers" that will be released in another book and is full of grammatical mistakes. I like the fiction write-ups though.

I will wait for the revised version of the product before buying hard copy.

In addition, I learned that CGL are already working on a soft version only of another magic supplement...If I were cynical, I might be inclined to think both products were originally expected to fit in the same book but were split up to make more money.

Ever since the release of 5th, this product line appears to be mismanaged, we don't know when products will come or, if they come out, what they are expected to contain. We are often surprised to learn that xyz product was released yesterday. The website is badly out of date, shows neglect and is slow. I think there are some genuine...See more

People are giving this bad review for nonsense. Its the early release PDF. There is going to be some errors. Get over it. It's another solid expansion with fantastic art and rules from Catalyst.

This version of the pdf went off to the printers and will be the print book barring some massive intervention by Catalyst. This is not just some early release candidate. The fluff is great and the tradition write-ups and alchemy expansion makes me much more interested in running that type of character, but it is literally impossible to ignore the major mistakes that made it into this book. People have every right to rate this as a broken product that they are not satisfied with.

They delivered a product which doesn't meet some basic quality checks. People are disappointed. To such a degree that they are telling that it lacks quality. No instant cheer just because it is Shadowrun. Get over it.

Does 5th edition magic have a vision for what it wants to be? It seems to be rather uninspired after previous editions, but worse it is by all reports filled with contradictions and gross errors. This book will be getting skipped and I hope the inevitable next magic book already mentioned just replaces this one.

Reading about those serious spelling and grammar errors as well as the mentioned missing powers and concept concerns meets my own experiences with the development of 5h Edition books and I will no longer buy any new books until CGL reconsiders that kind of policy.

Is there going to be a dead tree version anytime soon?

Yes, this has been sent to print, so hard copies are not far off. We'll announce street dates once the books hit the warehouse.

You actually sent this to print? With all the mistakes, errors and paste and copy from 4th edition? This is unacceptable.
The book was added on June 30th and the PDF has not even been updated with some fixes since then.
Seriously do something and fast, you are losing your customers trust.

And this is why I do not buy hardcopy books anymore.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
