Ordering Issues

Catalyst Game Labs’ online ordering—the BattleCorps website—is built on very old code. Thirteen years old, to be specific, which is several generations when it comes to tech. It was enough to get us up and running back in the day, but it developed more problems as time went on—problems we were able to stay on top of with a reasonable amount of time and effort. We got by until this last year, when several changes by our fulfillment center and an attempt to update our software compounded the issues to an extent that we can’t even track down half of the problems it’s now giving us.

At present, a lot of our orders (most, in fact) seem to go through without an issue. But when there is a problem, in some cases we lose all ability to track and reply. We agree this is unacceptable, and we are taking steps to deal with it. We are bringing in a specialist this next week to try to fix our email tracking issue, and we have several days set aside to work on a complete system rebuild using modern software tools.

In the meantime we are trying to get all back orders taken care of as quickly as we can. If any of you are not in communications with someone at Catalyst and feel that your order is outstanding, by all means, feel free to contact randall@catalystgamelabs.com, with the subject BATTLECORPS ORDERING PROBLEM, and he’ll work directly with you and the warehouse in the interim.

Thank you for your patience and support.

    Sword Of The Serpent

    Machiko is second-in-command of the Green Serpent Guard, an elite corps of Elven samurai who are sworn to defend the Chairman of Nagato Corporation. But she soon gets a promotion – after her superior is ruthlessly cut down in a slew of attacks aimed at the famous Guard itself.

    Only the wealthiest can afford assassins with enough muscle to take on the Green Serpent Guard, and Machiko turns up evidence that points ot Nagato’s biggest rival, Fuchi Corp. It looks like Fuchi has designs on Nagato’s sensitive research division, where the incredible future of the communications matrix is taking shape. When magical attacks and sabotage begin taking out more of Nagato’s personnel, things between the two megacorporations really heat up. But behind the growing hostilities with Fuchi looms a more sinister threat, requiring far more of Machikos talents than her flashing sword. And staying alive may require defeating a high-tech foe with virtually unlimited powers – and absolutely no mercy ….

Dead Air Legends Epub Available!

This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Dead Air (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

    Jacked-In, Revved-Up, And Armed To The Teeth

    It’s fast and furious inside the Combat Biker maze, where armor-plated hogs and juiced-up rice grinders blast, pound, and pummel each other for points. But it’s just barely up to speed for Jonathon and Tamara, two elven bikers at the head of the Los Angeles Sabers. With a simsense link between them that allows them to act virtually as one, they’re been tearing up the league and making headlines.

    But all that changes when Tamara takes a brutal hit from the cyberspurs of Dougan Rose, lead linebiker for the New Orleans Buzzsaws and the most respected player in the league. When Tamara gets slammed, Jonathon’s out for revenge. But it isn’t going to be easy. Because there’s a lot more to this sabotage than meets the eye – and if the megacorp agents, simsense industry operatives, and hostile mages don’t kill him, the truth probably will….

Burning Bright Legends Epub Available

This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Fade To Black (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

    MISSING: Mitch Truman, heir apparent to an entertainment megacorporation. He may have fled his parents for the sake of love, but if magic is involved the reason could be darker…

    WEALTHY: Dan Truman, CEO of media giant Truman Technologies, doesn’t care how much it costs–he wants his son back. He’ll hire the best to find his heir, even if their motives are suspect…

    EXPERIENCED: Kyle Teller’s done this job before. He knows the tricks of the trade, and not only because he’s a mage. He thinks finding the missing boy will be easy. Why shouldn’t it be?

    But will money and experience be enough to defeat the terrible power growing beneath the city of Chicago?

Face To Black Legends Epub Available

This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Face To Black (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

    In 2055, Newark is an over-crowded urban nightmare populated by hordes of SINless indigents. Millions live in abject poverty. Violect is rampant. Brutal gangs and vicious criminals control many sections of the city like feudal lords. Amid this harrowing landscape, Rico gathers his team: Shank, Thorvin, Piper, and the eccentric shaman known as Bandit. The job is to free a man from a corporate contract that is the moral equalvent of slavery, but that is only the beginning. The runners’ diverse skills and talents are swiftly put to the test. Rico’s challenge is to keep the team alive as they sort through a maze of corporate intrigue and misdirection, but without discarding honor, for without honor a man is nothing. Honor alone distinguishes a man from the ravaging dogs that fill the streets, and as the runners soon learn, the price of honor is high.

Worlds Without End Legends Epub & New Mission PDF Available

This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Worlds Without End (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

    Spawned in the realm between the worlds, a Horror comes. Defeated in battle centuries before by the elven mage Aina, it walks again, seeking vengeance on the mortal lands. If Aina fails to convince the courts of Tir na nOg and Tir Tairngire of the danger, she will have to face the Horror alone once more–or watch the world end.

And a new Mission, Tick Tock (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG), for Season 6!

Shadowrun Missions, Season 6, Adventure 4

    You build walls for two reasons: to keep things out, and to keep things in. Walls were erected around the Chicago Containment Zone many years ago, keeping people from the outside away from the dangers within, and locking secrets inside that are still waiting to be discovered. Though the longer they stay hidden, the clearer it is that some secrets don’t want to be found.

    In the latest Shadowrun Mission, runners have a chance to solve one of the longest-standing mysteries of the Containment Zone, namely: What happened to Melissa Truman, the missing heir of a media empire? Digging up the right information will be hard enough, but if the runners are lucky and skilled enough to uncover the truth, they’ll have a harder question in front of them. What do they do with what they’ve found?

    Full of danger, intrigue, and insidious obstacles, Tick Tock is a great continuation of the ongoing Chicago-based plotline for regular Missions players, or a fast-paced adventure for players jumping into the story for the first time.

Howling Shadows out now!

The wonderful thing about critters is the Sixth World is that no matter who you are, no matter where you are, there is a critter prepared to mess up your day. Street sammies in heavily urbanized areas, deckers riding the lightning of the Matrix, mages tripping the light fantastic of the astral plane–all of them might run into something wild and fierce that is perfectly capable of screwing up their day.

You’ll find information on the full spectrum of these critters–savage Infected, venomous paranormals, mysterious spirits, Matrix-hacking beasts, and more–in the new book Howling Shadows, now available for PDF purchase and print pre-order (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG). Maybe you’ve seen some of the new art we’ve shared, but now you can look at the whole thing. Need a little more info? Read on!

The Wild Calls

Gangers. Corp security. Mr. Johnson. Organized crime. Other shadowrunners. Running in the Sixth World does not exactly lack for obstacles, but only foolish runners worry solely about metahuman opponents. There are plenty of other ways the world can kill you, from throat-ripping martachoras to blood-sucking chupacabras, from the aggressive gamma spider to the swarming harpy. While most runners would be happy to simply avoid these threats, it’s not always possible. Critters may be used as security, they may swarm in abandoned areas runners must investigate, or they may carry valuable reagents runners need. Some of them may even hold the keys to unlocking the sort of powers runners covet.

Howling Shadows is the critter sourcebook for Shadowrun, Fifth Edition. With a broad range of critters for every habitat, the book has plot hooks that show how critters may be used in campaigns, details on new critter powers, and other information to flesh out Shadowrun adventures and campaigns. Sink your teeth into this one and see how untamed the Sixth World can be.

Howling Shadows is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

Striper Assassin Legends Epub Available

But she is not the only predator stalking the dark underbelly of the Philadelphia metroplex. There are other hunters prowling the night, and some possess a power even greater than hers.

    Some may even want her dead.

    When the moon rises full and brilliant into the dark pall of the night, the bestial side of her nature battles for dominion, demanding vengeance and death.

    Who will survive?

    Who dares to hunt the hunter?

Never Trust An Elf Legends Epub Available

Check out this week’s Shadowrun Legends installment, Never Trust An Elf (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

    For years, Jason Chase was at the head of the pack, shadowrunning with the best in the business. When time dulled his flesh and cybernetic edge, he knew it was time to get out, or get dead.

    Now, his past has come back to haunt him. To protect a young girl from the terrorists who want her dead, Chase must rely on his years of experience, and whatever his body has left to give. And everything he’s got, he’ll need as he comes face-to-face with a part of his life he thought he’d left behind, and an enemy left for dead.

Night’s Pawn Legends Epub Available

Shadowrun Legends epubs are now starting to flow weekly, with a new installment every Tuesday…check out the first in Night’s Pawn (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

    For years, Jason Chase was at the head of the pack, shadowrunning with the best in the business. When time dulled his flesh and cybernetic edge, he knew it was time to get out, or get dead.

    Now, his past has come back to haunt him. To protect a young girl from the terrorists who want her dead, Chase must rely on his years of experience, and whatever his body has left to give.

Seattle Sprawl Digital Box Available

Seattle has always been the quintessential Shadowrun setting, and were excited to bring you the first ever box rendition of the Seattle Sprawl (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG)!

And as it’s noted at the bottom, once the print pre-order goes live in a few weeks, if you purchased this digital box, then you’ll receive an email giving you $10 off that preorder!

    It’s the shadowrunning capital of the world for a reason. Seattle offers an unparalleled intersection of corporate, political, and criminal powers. This is where icons are made—like the Ancients, the Halloweeners, the Finnigan Crime Family, the Skraacha, Dante’s Inferno, Renraku Arcology, the Big Rhino, and the Alabaster Maiden. And this is where runners like Dodger, Sally Tsung, Dirk Montgomery, Jake Armitage, Twist, Kellan Colt, and James Kincaid made their names, sometimes made their fortunes, and occasionally experienced horrible losses. This is where you go to test your mettle. This is how you show you’re at the top of the heap.

    A sprawl this big can’t be contained in a single book, so we made a box. Inside you’ll find:

  • Emerald Shadows, a book outlining the geography of the sprawl and the notable powers and locations in each district;
  • Ruling the Queen City, a deeper examination of the power and history of Seattle, including a look at the people who rule over the city—and the people who control them;
  • Tangled Threads, holding plot hooks and adventures to help launch or continue your Seattle-based game;
  • Character cards, fully statted out cards of Seattle denizens that can be used as easy-reference NPCs of even pre-generated PCs;
  • Modular map cards, a deck of cards showing maps of different types of rooms that can be combined into a never-ender variety of buildings;
  • Gang reference card, providing a quick listing of gangs of the sprawl, their colors, and where they operate;
  • And a poster-sized map of Seattle like Shadowrun has never seen before.
  • All this will bring the sprawl to life while making it easier for players and gamemasters to dive into the shadowy depths that make Seattle legendary—and see if they can keep their head above water.

    Seattle Sprawl is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

    SAVE $10: When you buy this digital box set, you’ll get a code giving you $10 off the preorder of the physical version of the box set once that goes live. Be sure to turn on your email notifications!

New, kinda weird Mission brings Shadowrun design into bold, emoji-based space

Sometimes we like to come out with Missions that are not part of the regular Missions schedule, and sometimes we like to do things with those Missions that are a little experimental. In that vein, we bring you the new Mission, UnCONventional Warfare, wherein the type of Shadowrun adventure often played in a convention setting is an adventure with a convention setting, because we hope reality will fold back in on itself enough times to usher in the Singularity.

Along with its bold setting, the Mission features a whole new look that in many ways may seem primitive but in other, more important ways is totally futuristic, because it has emojis all over the place, and nothing says hip, hot, and futuristic like emojis. Shadowrun line developer Jason Hardy said about this design choice: “I love almost everything about Shadowrun‘s art and design, but there is one glaring flaw: an almost total lack of emojis. We need more emojis. More emojis! Emojis everywhere!”

Shadowrun art director Brent Evans took the whole thing in stride. While the decision was made a little late to allow Mr. Evans to actually participate in the design, he noted his enthusiasm thusly: “My head is swimming with the visual possibilities.  We could run amok with this.” And run amok we shall!

Legendary design and layout guy Matt “Wrath” Heerdt was somewhat less sanguine, saying “Oh nice, you drop an emoji project on me with no warning? And let me guess, production will have to develop those? Do you have any idea how swamped I am and how much time a smiling-winking-troll emoji would take to design? I’ll shuffle some projects around, just don’t expect the troll emojis to be twice as big as the elf emojis …” At that point he shuffled off to hide under a warm blanket with his laptop and a huge carafe of coffee.

But enough build-up. Why don’t you see the triumph of emoji-based design for yourself? Since this Mission is such an experiment, we’re giving it away for free. Here’s the link: SMH 2016-01 UnCONventional Warfare

And we’ll note that whatever else this Mission is, it’s entirely playable. Have fun!

I can summon monsters

Seriously. I can. I know, it’s late right now, and maybe I’m not thinking clearly, but here’s the deal–I typed something, innocently, into Facebook. Something my toddler daughter said about pandas that was nonsense. She said “Pandas like to blow up fire.” Really, she said that. And I thought it was cute and funny, but that was it. But then this panda creature that blows up fire (whatever that means) came across my screen as a whole illustration–a pandamander.

So great. I knew what it looked like. But what does it do? More importantly, how could I use it in Shadowrun game terms?

I didn’t have to wonder for long. Soon, this arrived:

Pandamander-2

It’s clear, then. With the work I have been doing on the upcoming critter book, Howling Shadows, I have gained the ability to summon new beasts out of thin air. Either that, or I know some really creative, really weird people who do things when whims strike them. Which is also good.

Shadowrun Missions: Killing Pawn PDF Available

The next Shadowrun Mission is available (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG)!

Shadowrun Prime Mission 001

    There are certain things shadowrunners know. They know Mr. Johnson will not tell you everything. They know sometimes the things you don’t know can kill you. And they know that one of the keys to survival is staying one step ahead of the opposition—or, in times when you are working for a devious Mr. Johnson, not falling too many steps behind.

    The corporate enclave of Manhattan is the scene for some high-stakes manipulation that will test just how skilled shadowrunners are. Killing Pawn is a Prime Mission, a higher-level challenge designed for characters that have already triumphed in a large number of regular Missions and are ready for something tougher. Runners will have to think fast and shoot even faster if they want to come out ahead in this game—or at least not get captured in the first few moves.

Market Panic and Serrated Edge now out! What are they? Read on!

It seems like it’s about time to have some new Shadowrun releases, doesn’t it? I mean, besides the awesome news about electronic versions of classic novels. How about two new books That’s right, two books are now available for available for PDF purchase and print pre-order. First, we have the corporate sourcebook for Shadowrun, Fifth Edition –it’s called Market Panic (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG), and it’s your guide to the plots and plans the Big Ten are hatching as they scramble for that elusive extra billion nuyen. We also have a new adventure for you called Serrated Edge (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG). Set in Denver, it gives you the chance to expose some wolf in sheep’s clothing–and put in motion events that will shake up the Sixth World! But let’s take them one at a time.

First is Market Panic, with detailed info on each member of the Big Ten, plus a look into the life of a corp drone and the machinations of the Corporate Court:

PAIN POINTS

Chaos is horrible for business—unless your business is shadowrunning. The Big Ten megacorporations of the Sixth World are reeling, with scandals, disasters, and crippling attacks coming at them from all angles. NeoNET is scrambling to maintain AAA status, Ares is trying not to let the secret rot at the heart of the corp become public, while Aztechnology, fresh from taking on a dragon in Amazonia, is looking at a facedown with another great dragon. And that’s not all—every corp is a pile of schemes, turmoil, upheaval, and teetering chaos, because that’s how they operate.

Market Panic runs down the state of the Big Ten for Shadowrun, providing the background, story developments, and plot hooks players and gamemasters need to add excitement, intrigue, and Sixth World flavor to their adventures and campaigns. If you’re going to run for or against the big megacorporations—and that includes all shadowrunners—this is critical information to have so you know what you might get thrown into, who you’re going up against, and how you might obtain enough intel to survive. Market Panic is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

Next up is Serrated Edge, everything you need for a hot time in the Sixth World’s leading city of intrigue and espionage, Denver:

SCALPEL OF HATE

The Sixth World is many things, including a stunning series of case studies on the mechanisms of hate. There are some true experts out there, people who know that just walking up to someone or something you don’t like and throwing a solid punch is satisfying, but nowhere near as satisfying as causing destruction that runs deep and lasts forever.

The Aurora Warrens of Denver hold a dark secret, as some people trusted to help its residents are instead giving full rein to their darkest impulses. Shadowruuners typically are not heroes riding in to save the day, but in this case the work they’re being offered gives them a chance to dig into these secrets, perhaps fix some of them, and maybe even bring a few people to justice—however they happen to define justice. With dark secrets, double-crosses, and plenty of nuyen flying around, Serrated Edge gives players plenty of chaos to keep up with while launching them into a series of adventures that will shake up the city of spies and maybe bring about a better future. Or curse it to worse.

Serrated Edge is an adventure for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

SHADOWRUN & BATTLETECH LEGENDS FICTION RETURNS

From the moment Decision at Thunder Rift published in 1986 for BattleTech and Into The Shadows published in 1990 for Shadowrun, novels became an integral part of each universe. Unfolding a living arrow of time where the universe changed and progressed, while also presenting different sides of each story: all the shades of grey.

Over one hundred and thirty novels published across two decades for these two phenomenal settings, with well over two million copies of BattleTech novels alone having been sold worldwide in over ten different languages: BattleTech is one of the largest, longest-running science fiction universes. In some countries, they have outsold prominent licensed literary properties such as Star Trek and Star Wars.

Now, after many years of work by Topps Company, Inc., Loren Coleman and the dozens and dozens of authors who contributed their skills to the skein of amazing stories woven through BattleTech and Shadowrun, we’re ecstatic to announce the return of these Legends as we begin rolling them out in epub, available across a wide spectrum of digital venues:

    The first two epubs for each universe include a fantastic introductory price. It’s never been a better time to return to these brilliant novels, or dive in for the first time. Spread the word!


    BATTLETECH: EMBERS OF WAR PRINT PRE-ORDER/EPUB AVAILABLE
    Last year we announced the return of BattleTech print fiction in Embers of War and it was available in a limited printing for Gen Con 2015. The release of this book was pushed back for a variety of reasons, including creating a new co-branding for the cover design, as well as coordinating with the return of the Legends.

    The time is now to grab your epub copy, as well as preorder your print copy of Embers of War, the first new, novel-length print BattleTech fiction in seven years!

      For Ezra Payne and the Stealthy Tiger mercenaries, professionalism is everything. Hired to assist in the bitter, bloody fighting on the planet Hall, they quickly earn a decisive victory for their employer. They settle afterward in for a needed period of rebuilding, and a few months’ peace before moving on to the next contract.

      But their respite does not last. More mercenaries, hired by the Allied Mercenary Command itself, land on Hall. They believe the Tigers’ employer to be league with the Word of Blake, a shadowy interstellar organization that worships technology, and which has been building its own empire among the worlds around Terra.

      The Tigers want nothing of this battle, but war rages across the Inner Sphere. The hard-fought cease-fire cannot last, even on Hall, and when every faction is embittered and fueled by fervor, peace has no chance at all.

      As a new conflict erupts, will the Stealthy Tigers’ BattleMechs be enough to save them? Or will the looming threat of renewed war engulf them in its fiery embrace?

    Order from: BattleCorp or DriveThruFiction.

    Or Pre-Order the Epub/Print combo from BattleCorps.com

      World of Shadows is the second anthology of original Shadowrun short stories, each one showcasing some of the most far-flung, treacherous locations around the world. From a scientific mission gone wrong in the snowy wilds of Russia to an AR nightclub in Morocco sheltering runners on the lam to a recovering runner drawn into a deadly web of intrigue in the darkest alleys of Hong Kong, these eighteen original short stories explore exotic settings far off the beaten path. Featuring stories by Michael A. Stackpole, Mel Odom, Jean Rabe, Aaron Rosenberg, Phaedra Weldon, Annie Bellet, Chris A.

      Shadowrunner Katar Hawke knows the score on the streets. Every job is to be executed swiftly and simply—no muss, no fuss, and with as little help as possible. But when an extraction of a seemingly ordinary grad student from a Central American dig goes south in a big way, Hawke has to keep them both alive while he figures out what he’s stumbled into—and how to get out of it in one piece.

      But nothing about this shadowrun is remotely ordinary. The student, Rachel Gordon, has unearthed an artifact linking the Sixth World and the long gone, magical Second World. The discovery sets off a lethal chain reaction of feuding megacorporations and cold-blooded killers who will do anything to get their hands on her and what she knows.

      Caught in the hardest of hard places, Hawke must break his cardinal rule and assemble his own shadowrunning team to survive what’s coming at him. But in the end, it all comes down to one question: will he sell out Rachel to the highest bidder, or join her on a quest that could change the face of the Sixth World forever?

    Available for epub purchase at BattleShop or DriveThru, or you can order the print book!

    San Francisco, a New Mission, and Other PDFs!

    First up, we’ve got some new PDFs for Shadowrun, Fifth Edition action.

      Money? Check. Political turmoil leading to scrambling for power? You bet. Megacorps jockeying for position while working to take their rivals down a notch? Of course! A festering hive of corruption set next to one of the most scenic bays ever colonized by humans? Absolutely! San Francisco has all of the ingredients needed to make a nice, festering stew for shadowrunners. With the former imperialistic fascist General Saito out of power and the entire bay area united as a single sprawl, there is power and money to be had, which means business in the shadows is booming. San Francisco is a shadowrunner’s guide to the people, places, and plots that make up this city, providing the paydata they need to navigate the hilly streets and cruel back roads of a sprawl whose aura of sophistication can’t mask its deadly heart.

      With information on getting into and around the city, notable locations across the sprawl, and plot hooks to keep runners busy, San Francisco is an indispensable aid to Shadowrun players looking to bring their skills to the city by the bay.

      San Francisco is part of the City by Shadow series of e-books focusing on cities across the Sixth World.

      Available for PDF purchase at BattleShop or DriveThru.

    Shadowrun Missions, Season 6, Adventure 2

      The Chicago sprawl is host to all manner of strange creatures—ghouls, toxic spirits, hellhounds, barghests, and chickens. Yes, chickens. The city is mostly urbanized, but there are also large swathes of vacant land, and some enterprising souls have been farming that land. This is the Sixth World, though, which means that whenever you have someone trying something bold, you have a dozen other people thinking, “How can I use that to hurt other people?”

      The runners are going to have some unusual jobs on this mission, including spreading some poisons and making sure innocent lives are spared (if they’re so inclined). They’ll have to be on their toes to steer clear of the authorities, get all the pieces of this particular scheme in place, and in particular answer the pressing question: Just what is Mr. Johnson up to?

      Amber Waves of Grain continues the latest Shadowrun Missions plotline set in Chicago. Whether you played other Chicago Missions, including the first one in this plotline (Ten Fifty-Seven) or are just launching into the series, this Mission provides plenty of action packed into a single adventure.

      Available for PDF purchase at BattleShop or DriveThru.

    This is the season of peace and joy, but enough about the new Star Wars movie. Let’s talk about giving good news to riggers, whom we love. We have good news–a big book of rigging awesomeness called Rigger 5.0 is currently available for PDF purchase and print pre-order (Battleshop, DriveThru). It’s packed full of rigging goodness–a dozen new aircraft, about two dozen watercraft, more than sixty–sixty!–groundcraft, and about as many drones as groundcraft. Plus new Electronic Warfare uses for riggers, new qualities and life modules, chase rules, modification rules, and so on! Need more info? Check this out:

    Premium Rush

    Spin your wheels over slick sprawl streets while drifting away from hot pursuit. Fly through narrow canyons ahead of missiles twisting their way after you. Shrink down to insect size to get an eye on places outsiders aren’t supposed to see. These are just some of the ways riggers jack up their seemingly unending adrenaline rush, as they show that the hardest shadowrunners to hit are the ones that stay in motion.

    Rigger 5 is the ultimate hot-rod, jet plane, speedboat, and more companion for Shadowrun. With dozens of new vehicles and drones, more detailed rules for vehicle chase and combat, and customization rules, this is a book that every rigger needs to get ahead of the competition and stay there. Get the feel of laying down hot rubber in the cold shadows of the Sixth World and a taste for speed, danger, and a good, clean getaway.

    Rigger 5 is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition

    But the good news does not stop there! Other good news: To be absolutely clear, we are breaking the rigger curse with this book. In times past, the arrival of a rigger book was closely followed by a new edition of Shadowrun. This is not happening this time around. We have not started even preliminary discussions about a sixth edition of Shadowrun. We have made a two-year schedule, and no sixth edition appears on it. So rest easy, riggers! Hit the accelerator, jump in, and get ready for a nice, long ride!

    And one more piece of good news–a new Mission is on the way! Watch this space for more news!

    Secrets of CPA study

    If you want to see success secrets of the CPA exam, secrets that other students do not want you to discover, then you have come to the right article. Why would other students not want you to learn these secrets? Well it is basically because if you know about these secrets then you will be better able to pass the exam and then you will actually pass it, and that will create a higher number of new CPAs coming through, so that means that these other competing CPAs will have a harder time getting paid what they want because of the higher availability of people who have this qualification. It is just the laws of economics, but you need not allow that to worry you because quite honestly there is still a low enough number of qualified CPA’s coming through that if you and a whole host of other people that you will meet on exam day get qualified, it will not be too detrimental to the wages that you all end up getting paid by firms after you are done and passed.

    So what are the secrets? Basically just to find the 100% best CPA review course. This can be a challenge but there are plenty of review courses for CPA exam.
