Are you shopping for the holidays? For others or for yourself? Or just shopping in general? Well, there’s Shadowrun goodness waiting for you! First, the latest Deep Shadows sourcebook, Better than Bad (Catalyst shop, Drivethru), just came out! Here’s the rundown:Righteous Fire
Kill or be killed. Eye for an eye. Get yours while you can. Shadowrunners—and most of the other residents of the Sixth World—are told from birth that those are the principles you must follow to survive. Thinking of others is for suckers. Take care of your own and hope you don’t die early.
But some runners think that’s no way to live. They know the world is stacked against them, and they’ve decided they like those odds. They choose to fight for what they think is right. They use shadowruns to take from people who don’t deserve what they have and give to those who need it. They seek hidden information that can right wrongs. It’s not easy, and it doesn’t always pay as well as outright theft, but who do they tell stories about centuries later—Robin Hood, or the jerk thief from a few forests away who only thought of himself?
Better than Bad is a shadowrunners’ guide to hooding, the art of committing crime to help those in need. With plot information, shadowrunning techniques and tactics, and advice to help runners work to bring good into the world, the book is the first definitive guide to shadowrunning with a conscience. It also includes information on a hot spot for working to right wrongs—Pretoria, in the African nation of Azania
Better than Bad is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, and most of the material can also be used with Shadowrun: Anarchy.
Casablanca-Rabat is a sprawl with millions of secrets and a willingness—an eagerness, even—to sell them. That means there is plenty of work for shadowrunners, but also a need for care, since revealing the wrong secret at the wrong time can lead to disaster. So get to know the city, get to know the culture, and learn how to play the game. Then take your running to the next level in one of the most vital sprawls of the Sixth World.
Shadows in Focus: Casablanca-Rabat follows Shadows in Focus: Morocco to fill in details of Africa’s northwestern shore, and you can either use both books to build in-game knowledge or focus on this one to help you launch shadowruns in a sprawl with a deep history of intrigue.<o:p></o:p>
Shadows in Focus: Casablanca-Rabat has rules for Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, along with world-building that can be used in both Shadowrun, Fifth Edition and Shadowrun: Anarchy.
