New Legends Epubs Available

We’ve two new Shadowrun Legends available in The Burning Time (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG) and Psychotrope (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

The-Burning-Time

    Low-level programmer Roy Kilaro wants nothing more than to become a Seraphim–an elite corporation operative–and experience some real action in the shadow ops between the megacorporations. He gets more than he ever wanted when a routine business trip to Boston lands him at ground zero of a running battle for survival. The combatants: a group of hardened ‘runners trying to finish a job, the ruthless anti-elven terrorists known as the Knights of the Red Branch, and a powerful sorceress who wants revenge upon them all…

Psychotrope

    LIFE SPAN: 12 MINUTES

    It started out as a simple Matrix run, but now five deckers are trapped inside a nightmarish virtual landscape where jacking out is an impossibility–and what waits has all the hallmarks of the afterlife: tunnels of brilliant light, greetings from long-dead friends and family…and the terrifying sense of being juggled between Heaven and Hell. But in this computer-generated netherworld, there is only one thing that can be trusted. And it isn’t the senses….

    …THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS

    It’s the uncommon experience the deckers have in common: a near brush with death. It has brought them together in this hell-raising realm and under the influence of a twisted intelligence with diabolical plans for the unwary travelers in grid-time. Having their minds and souls extinguished before the Matrix-scape crashdown is only the beginning of the puzzle. Discovering why will be the end. A dead end.

We’ve two new Shadowrun Legends available in Technobabble (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG) and Clockwork Asylum: Dragon Heart Saga #2 (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

Technobabel

    He awoke in a body bag, his brain fried, a black hole where his memory should be. If not for the cool carbon-fiber blade concealed in the bones of his arm, he would’ve been dead for sure. But Michael Bishop–a.k.a. Babel, messiah of the Matrix–is back in the game.

    Renraku Computer Systems has defied the accords of the Corporate Court. Now they must decipher the secrets of the otaku–and Babel is the technoshaman reborn for the job. But Netwalking in the shadows of the electron jungle means initiation into deadly megacorporate intrigue–and discovering more about Babel’s own team than he fears he should know. As allies become adversaries, Babel breaks through the dreaded black ice security to find a doorway to the future–and signs of a corp war looming on the horizon–one that could destroy the technoworld and beyond…forever.

Clockwork-Asylum

    In this second book of the greatest epic in Shadowrun history–the maelstrom of cyber-magic and political intrigue following President Dunkelzahn’s assassination rages out of control. Ryan Mercury, Dunkelzahn’s secret agent, is torn between his duty and his desire to find a killer. But when a spirit wrongly concludes that Ryan is working for the enemy, he anoints a cyberzombie to carry out a hit of its own. Now with an impressive arsenal of allies, weaponry, and the Dragon Heart, Ryan just might pull off the save of the century–if he doesn’t lose his life first!

DeadAir

    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….

Fade To Black Legends Epub Available

This week’s Shadowrun Legends installment is Fade To Black (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

Fade-to-Black

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.
