Our ebook explorations of the Sioux Nation are moving ahead with two new books (one a bit newer than the other). The newest one provides a look at the shadowy goings-on in the city of Butte, and it goes by the easy-to-remember title of Butte (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG). The other one, the new short fiction from Shadowrun novel author R.L. King, who wrote Borrowed Time, is called Wolf and Buffalo (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG, Amazon), and it takes you into the intrigue and deep traditions of Sioux Nation residents. Read all about it here.
Hoi Chummers, we’ve just posted a Tumblr on the awesome power of the Shadowrun community! Specifically, it deals with the layers permeating back and forth between computer games and the tabletop, as illustrated by the first full length campaign mod by the Shadowrun Identity Project that is based on the classic paperback sourcebook Mercurial. Read all about it here.
The Sixth World is, of course, a horribly dystopian place, but it also is a place where people face the wondrous possibilities of making entirely new versions of themselves. Any part of the metahuman body can be replaced, and the new augmentations sourcebook Chrome Flesh (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG) is your guide to all the possibilities. With cyberware, bioware, nanotech, genetech, and a host of new chemicals, this book gives runners dozens of ways to amp up their game–and see just how much of their humanity they’re willing to fritter away. It also comes with full tables listing all Shadowrun, Fifth Edition augmentations to this point! Want more information? Click here.
