Shadowrun


If you didn't see the stories earlier (and you've been living under a rock), Gen Con is this week. The whole gaming world is converging on the ICC, and that includes Catalyst Game Labs. They'll be here with the new Shadowrun 6th Edition and a whole bunch of extras. Like what? Like see below.

Shadowrun is a sci-fi setting unlike many others. It's not all hacking and lasers and cybernetic parts. It's also elves and dragons and magic. With a new edition of the game coming up, people are wondering how that magic system will work. Well, you're in luck, as that's just what Catalyst is showing off in this preview.

The new edition of Shadowrun is coming out soon. Very soon. And Catalyst Game Labs wants you to see what's coming. They've posted up a character dossier for you to check out. It's for Emu, the human rigger (I don't think she's actually an emu named Juarez. No word on if they are or are not an ---hole).

the Sixth World is getting a shake-up with a sixth edition of Shadowrun. The classic sci-fi RPG of mixing fantasy worlds with the rust-tech of cyberpunk will be making its way to you later this year. But what's changing? Catalyst Game Labs has posted up a quick Q&A session with game designer Jason Hardy. Have yourselves a look.

Ogre brutes with cybernetic implants. Hacker elves with digital sockets in their head. Dragons. Shadowrun's a setting different from most. In this preview, we get a look at what's happening in the 6th World in the upcoming 6th edition of the game.

Catalyst Game Labs turned a lot of heads the other day when they announced that Shadowrun was getting a new edition. Now, they're giving us a look at what everyone can expect from this new, 6th edition of the game. They've posted up a preview of the different sourcebooks and game aids that they'll be coming out with, along with their street month, in support of this new version.

Catalyst Game Labs has announced that they're coming out with a new edition of Shadowrun. It's the Sixth Age and they're coming up to the Sixth Edition of the game. The planned release is this summer, with a new beginner box helping to usher the way into the world of high-tech samurai and hacker ogres.

If you want to get your hands on something nice, the folks over at Catalyst Game Labs have posted limited edition dice sets, a special pin, and Shadowrun sourcebooks over in their webshop. There's quite a lot, so go check 'em out.

My, how the time flies. can you really believe that it's already been 35 years since Battletech got started? How about 30 years for Shadowrun? Catalyst Game Labs has noticed, and they've got lots planned for those games' anniversaries this year.

The folks over at Catalyst Game Labs have been working hard on a whole bunch of new releases. Some are available now, but even the ones that are a little ways off, they want to make sure you know they're coming. There's new Dungeons & Dragons releases, new Shadowrun releases, and some updates about restocks.

Man, been a while since we've heard from Randal and the others over at Catalyst Game Labs. What've they been up to? Well, they've been prepping for their Shadowrun: Sprawl Ops Boardgame Kickstarter. Head into the world of ogre hackers, dragons, and other cyber-fantasy creatures in this new competitive worker-placement game.
Shadowrun is where a lot of players go to get their cyberpunk on. It's a setting that's got a long and storied history, with lots of supplements and players all over the world. It... can be kinda intimidating, actually, if you're a new player and want to get into it. Where do you begin? Where's a good jumping-on point? Well, Catalyst Game Labs is here to help with Shadowrun: Anarchy, which is now available.
Catalyst Game Labs has a quartet of releases coming out in the next month+ that they'd like to tell you about. That way, you can save up your nickels and make sure you're at the game shop right as they open so you can be the first gamer on your block with these new books. If you're a fan of Battletech, Shadowrun, and/or the Valiant RPG, you'll want to check out what's coming up.
Yes, yes, yes. I know that March is basically over. April will be here... well... Friday. But it just means that if you didn't know about the books released for Shadowrun and Battletech the other day, you can just run yourself out and get it. Also, you can get your finances in order for all the things releasing in April. And trust me, there's a lot.
Randall and friends have been busy over at Catalyst Game Labs. They've got a new sourcebook for Shadowrun available in pdf (with print versions available for pre-order) and a new adventure that works with it. I did say that they'd been busy.
Can you believe we're only a couple days away from September? We're 2/3 through the year. Oh how time does fly by. My Kroger has had Halloween candy displays for 2 weeks already. And after that... we'll start getting the 4th of July stuff...
In the meantime, Catalyst Game Labs has posted up their September releases in one, convenient place for you to check out.
There's some Battletech. There's some Bravest Warrior. There's some Shadowrun. And there's some Jarl.
It just wouldn't be Gen Con without Randall and Catalyst Game Labs in attendance. As they have for the past... lots of years, they will once more be at the show and they're gonna be packed with cool stuff to see and do at booths 417, 413, 509, and 617.
All of us have things we'd like to do, or have done, to alter how we look and are capable of. Whether you work out, get tattoos, or even just pierce your ears, there's things we do that can shape how we're perceived or the various abilities we have. Well, in the world of Shadowrun, there's a lot more options for body modification. Granted, since it's all futuristic and stuff, it's a bit more elaborate than what's available now.
It's Sunday. Here in the States, it's Father's Day. If you are a father, hope you have a great Father's Day. If you're not a father, I still hope you have a great day, regardless. As for me, I'm sitting here at the start of the last day of CMON Expo 2015. It's been a great time. Very busy, lots of panels yesterday. I hope you enjoyed the reports of all the new stuff. I'll get you a link to the other photo collections here in a minute from yesterday, and there will be some more today.

But anyway, for the moment, we're getting together the bite-sized stories we've come across in the past couple days.

In this batch we have: Dragon Forge Tech-Deck Additions - Expansion Base Set Kickstarter Running Now, Pedion Wall System unlocked, New Dwarves Female Regiment 28mm from Scibor, Fantasy Concept Cards IV: Creatures and Treasures on Kickstarter Now, Dungeon Revolutions is available now from Thomarillion, Amber Portable Weapon and Gun Crew at The Ion Age, 28mm Satyr Group now available from Lone Gunman Games, Khurasan releases planet-killing space monster, Tabletop-Art Ancestral Ruins RL 30mm and 40mm Deals Available Now, Brigade Models - New 15mm Releases, Battle Flag : Cloth Battlemats for Wargames Indiegogo, Q-Workshop to Publish Shadowrun Dice, Secret Weapon Adds Five New Knight Bases, Manorhouse Workshop Launches Underground Terrain Kickstarter, Post Captain Master Index Pt 3 Shore Raids Chapters, and Heroic Maps - Modular Kit: Town - Streets & Houses.

Greetings Program! I always did like the idea of going into a computer, into the internet and just flying around inside of it. Movies like Tron and Lawnmower Man (don't laugh. I liked that movie) and TV shows like Futurama (where they go into the internet) have always been fascinating to me. I'm hoping that we get to that point sometime relatively soon. Well, the latest sourcebook for Shadowrun is right up my alley, since Catalyst Game Labs takes you to the Matrix with their new Data Trails sourcebook.
Catalyst Game Labs expands your Shadowrun resources with two new campaign books. You can get them in pdf now, or if you prefer something a little more solid, you can pre-order the print versions over in their webshop. The two books differ much from one-another, and will test your players in very different ways. In one, a strange force is killing random people and must be stopped. In the other, Megacorps are gearing up for an all-out attack.
Catalyst Game Labs has posted up the street dates for products they'll be releasing this month. In there, we've got Shadowrun: Run Faster (in both standard and limited edition models), a book designed to expand your options with your Shadowrun character. There's also London Falling, a sourcebook for adventure in Jolly Old England. For you Battletech fans, there's a couple new lances (Battle and Support) that will be hitting store shelves.

From the announcement:
Catalyst Game Labs takes you into the future with two new ShadowRun books (one an e-release) available now.

The first is Aetherology. When the real-world (full of ogres and dragons) and the net-world (with its sentient programs) aren't strange enough, there's Aetherology. This book explores altered states of consciousness (whether your player wants to be part of them or not) and the powers and creatures that govern such states. You thought things could get crazy before? You've not seen anything yet.

The second book is London Falling (and yes, now London Calling is stuck in my head), an adventure book for Shadowrun gaming in Jolly, Old London. There are four adventures within it. They were originally designed to be played at conventions, so each one can either be used as a stand-alone, or be integrated into your current campaign.
