Chrome eyes. Computers called “decks.” Big cyberlimbs and bigger guns. It’s Shadowrun in the year it all started. Take a step back to Shadowrun’s roots with Shadowrun 2050, a book that combines Twentieth Anniversary Edition rules—the smoothest, most accessible rule set Shadowrun has ever had—with the setting that first made the Sixth World a legend.
Shadowrun 2050 has everything players and gamemasters need to dive into the grimy beauty that kicked off one of the greatest roleplaying settings of all times. With information on how to adapt Twentieth Anniversary Edition Matrix, gear, and magic rules for the 2050 setting, as well as in-universe information about the powers of the world, what shadowrunners will be up to, and who they’ll be running into, Shadowrun 2050 puts a new twist on the classic setting.
Captain Chaos. Maria Mercurial. The Laughing Man. Dirk Montgomery. JetBlack. Hatchetman. Nightfire. And the Shadowland poster who just called himself The Big ‘D’. These people and many others are waiting for you in the year that started it all, a setting brought back to life with new, full-color artwork showing the chrome, dirt, neon, and darkness that was in the heart of Shadowrun when it started and remains at its core today.
Shadowrun 2050 will be available in 2012!
And if that wasn’t enough, Catalyst Game Labs is inordinately pleased to announce that Jordan Weisman, the creator of Shadowrun, has returned to his roots and just launched a Kickstarter for the development of the computer game “Shadowrun Returns”. Check it out!
