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….
This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Burning Bright (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?

This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Fade To Black (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).
In 2055, Newark is an over-crowded urban nightmare populated by hordes of SINless indigents. Millions live in abject poverty. Violence 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.
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.
