It took a while, but the third adventure in the Boardroom Backstabs series, entitled The Battle of Manhattan, is now available for print-pre-order and PDF purchase (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG)! It can be part of a corporate-themed campaign, but it also stands alone as its own adventure. It’s a wild ride, with in-flight shenanigans, on-the-ground rolling combat, and more! Shadowrun teams will need to keep their wits about them and use every skill at their disposal to get through this one, but there’s plenty of fun and nuyen waiting for them if they can hold on. And it’s dual-statted, meaning it can be used by players of Shadowrun, Fifth Edition and Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition. To whet your appetite a little more, here’s the book’s back-cover copy:
TO: Willing recruits
FROM: The people who can pay you
Come to Manhattan. We will pay.
We won’t bother with appeals to patriotism, or to your best instincts, or to anything the least bit noble. Come to Manhattan because there is a fight breaking out. Fighting is what you are paid for. Fighting is what you were born for. Come because there is money to be made.
You don’t need to pick a side. Sides shift, sides change. In the end, the only consistent thing is that you are the only one you can count on. You fight for yourself. That is something you should be used to. That is how you live.
Come to Manhattan because the corporations are spoiling for a fight. Most of the time, we’re good at keeping our spats clean and civilized. We lie, we cheat, we steal, but we do not engage in anything as vulgar as open street fighting. Sometimes, though, we can’t help ourselves. Sometimes, the tension gets to be too much, and it breaks, and it bursts into the open.
That time is coming.
Bring your skills, bring your wits, and definitely bring your guns. You’ll need everything you got. We are anxious to take advantage of what you have.
Come to Manhattan. We’re waiting for you.
Battle of Manhattan is the third in the Boardroom Backstabs series of adventures for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition and Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.
