Never Trust An Elf Legends Epub Available

Check out this week’s Shadowrun Legends installment, Never Trust An Elf (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

Never-Trust-an-Elf

Some say that the dragons are the most powerful beings on Earth. Certain elves disagree with that belief in the strongest, most violent terms.

An ork of the Seattle ghetto, Kham usually worries about more mundane problems. Day-to-day existence in the now magically active world of 2053is tough enough. But all that is about to change.

Drawn into a dangerous game of political and magical confrontation, Kham not only learns to never deal with a dragon–he also discovers that trusting an elf may leave you dead…

Night’s Pawn Legends Epub Available

Shadowrun Legends epubs are now starting to flow weekly, with a new installment every Tuesday…check out the first in Night’s Pawn (BattleShop, DriveThruRPG).

Night's-Pawn

    For years, Jason Chase was at the head of the pack, shadowrunning with the best in the business. When time dulled his flesh and cybernetic edge, he knew it was time to get out, or get dead.

    Now, his past has come back to haunt him. To protect a young girl from the terrorists who want her dead, Chase must rely on his years of experience, and whatever his body has left to give. And everything he’s got, he’ll need as he comes face-to-face with a part of his life he thought he’d left behind, and an enemy left for dead.

Seattle Sprawl Digital Box Available

Seattle has always been the quintessential Shadowrun setting, and were excited to bring you the first ever box rendition of the Seattle Sprawl (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG)!

And as it’s noted at the bottom, once the print pre-order goes live in a few weeks, if you purchased this digital box, then you’ll receive an email giving you $10 off that preorder!

E-CAT27110_Seattle-Sprawl-Digital-Box

    It’s the shadowrunning capital of the world for a reason. Seattle offers an unparalleled intersection of corporate, political, and criminal powers. This is where icons are made—like the Ancients, the Halloweeners, the Finnigan Crime Family, the Skraacha, Dante’s Inferno, Renraku Arcology, the Big Rhino, and the Alabaster Maiden. And this is where runners like Dodger, Sally Tsung, Dirk Montgomery, Jake Armitage, Twist, Kellan Colt, and James Kincaid made their names, sometimes made their fortunes, and occasionally experienced horrible losses. This is where you go to test your mettle. This is how you show you’re at the top of the heap.

    A sprawl this big can’t be contained in a single book, so we made a box. Inside you’ll find:

  • Emerald Shadows, a book outlining the geography of the sprawl and the notable powers and locations in each district;
  • Ruling the Queen City, a deeper examination of the power and history of Seattle, including a look at the people who rule over the city—and the people who control them;
  • Tangled Threads, holding plot hooks and adventures to help launch or continue your Seattle-based game;
  • Character cards, fully statted out cards of Seattle denizens that can be used as easy-reference NPCs of even pre-generated PCs;
  • Modular map cards, a deck of cards showing maps of different types of rooms that can be combined into a never-ender variety of buildings;
  • Gang reference card, providing a quick listing of gangs of the sprawl, their colors, and where they operate;
  • And a poster-sized map of Seattle like Shadowrun has never seen before.
  • All this will bring the sprawl to life while making it easier for players and gamemasters to dive into the shadowy depths that make Seattle legendary—and see if they can keep their head above water.

    Seattle Sprawl is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

    SAVE $10: When you buy this digital box set, you’ll get a code giving you $10 off the preorder of the physical version of the box set once that goes live. Be sure to turn on your email notifications!

SHADOWRUN & BATTLETECH LEGENDS FICTION RETURNS

From the moment Decision at Thunder Rift published in 1986 for BattleTech and Into The Shadows published in 1990 for Shadowrun, novels became an integral part of each universe. Unfolding a living arrow of time where the universe changed and progressed, while also presenting different sides of each story: all the shades of grey.

Over one hundred and thirty novels published across two decades for these two phenomenal settings, with well over two million copies of BattleTech novels alone having been sold worldwide in over ten different languages: BattleTech is one of the largest, longest-running science fiction universes. In some countries, they have outsold prominent licensed literary properties such as Star Trek and Star Wars.

Now, after many years of work by Topps Company, Inc., Loren Coleman and the dozens and dozens of authors who contributed their skills to the skein of amazing stories woven through BattleTech and Shadowrun, we’re ecstatic to announce the return of these Legends as we begin rolling them out in epub, available across a wide spectrum of digital venues:

The first releases, available right now, are:

    To celebrate the return of these Legends several epubs for each line have newly commissioned covers; the remaining book covers will be a combination of new and pulled from the archives.

    Additionally, this is obviously just the tip of the iceberg. On a regular schedule we’ll be rolling out the entire Shadowrun and BattleTech Legends!

    The first two epubs for each universe include a fantastic introductory price. It’s never been a better time to return to these brilliant novels, or dive in for the first time. Spread the word!

    BT Embers of War
    BATTLETECH: EMBERS OF WAR PRINT PRE-ORDER/EPUB AVAILABLE
    Last year we announced the return of BattleTech print fiction in Embers of War and it was available in a limited printing for Gen Con 2015. The release of this book was pushed back for a variety of reasons, including creating a new co-branding for the cover design, as well as coordinating with the return of the Legends.

    The time is now to grab your epub copy, as well as preorder your print copy of Embers of War, the first new, novel-length print BattleTech fiction in seven years!

      For Ezra Payne and the Stealthy Tiger mercenaries, professionalism is everything. Hired to assist in the bitter, bloody fighting on the planet Hall, they quickly earn a decisive victory for their employer. They settle afterward in for a needed period of rebuilding, and a few months’ peace before moving on to the next contract.

      But their respite does not last. More mercenaries, hired by the Allied Mercenary Command itself, land on Hall. They believe the Tigers’ employer to be league with the Word of Blake, a shadowy interstellar organization that worships technology, and which has been building its own empire among the worlds around Terra.

      The Tigers want nothing of this battle, but war rages across the Inner Sphere. The hard-fought cease-fire cannot last, even on Hall, and when every faction is embittered and fueled by fervor, peace has no chance at all.

      As a new conflict erupts, will the Stealthy Tigers’ BattleMechs be enough to save them? Or will the looming threat of renewed war engulf them in its fiery embrace?

    Order from: BattleCorp or DriveThruFiction.

    Or Pre-Order the Epub/Print combo from BattleCorps.com
