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:
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!
