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.
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.
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.
From the announcement:
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.
