Out-of-print Books

THIS PAGE UNDER CONSTRUCTION!

With twenty years of history, Shadowrun has dozens and dozens of rulebooks, sourcebooks, and adventures that are long out of print. While many of those books have updated versions currently in print, for long years most of that material simply was unobtainable. Now those books are once more available, in PDF format, for use by any player or gamemaster.

FIRST EDITION RULEBOOKS

Shadowrun, First Edition

The Year is 2050

The blending of technology and human flesh began in the 20th Century. Interfacing the human mind with computers was just the first step. Implants the "jack up" reflexes and cybernetic replacements followed quickly. The came the Awakening. A five-thousand-year lull in the flow of mystical energies subsided, and Magic returned to the world. Elves, Dwarfs, and Trolls assumed their true form, throwing off their human guise.

In the world of 2050, the megaplexes are monsters casting long shadows. As shadowrunners, that's where you live, in the cracks between the giant corporate structures. When the megacorps want something done but they don't want to dirty their hands, it's a Shadowrun they need and they come to you. Though your existence is not acknowledged by any governmental or corporate database, the demand for your services is hgh. You might be a Technomancer, sliding like a whisper through the databases of giant corporations, spiriting away the only thing of real value-information. Or perhaps you are a Street Samurai, an enforcer for hire whose combat skills and reflexes make you the ultimate urban predator. Or perhaps a Mage, one with an ancient gift, the ability to wield and shape the magical energies that now surround the Earth. And that's exactly the kind of firepower you'll need if you get hired to make a Shadowrun...

Shadowrun, Third Edition

Where Man Meets Magic & Machine

The year is 2060. Magic is as real as the mean streets of the mega-sprawls. Corporations call the shots while nailing each other through covert operatives in cutthroat competition. Flesh and machines have merged -- the street samurai with his smartguns and impossibly fast reflexes, the decker who can plug his own brain into the worldwide computer network, the rigger who links his mind to his vehicle and takes hairpin turns at fantastic speeds. And you're a part of this wired world, where corporate skyscrapers glitter over the dark shadows they cast. You live in those shadows. You're a shadowrunner -- a street operative.

You may be human or troll, dwarf or elf. You may throw fireballs, pull out your trusty Uzi or slice through computer security with a program as elegant and deadly as a stiletto. No matter what, you get the job done. You're a shadowrunner -- a professional. You don't just survive in the shadows -- you thrive there ... for now.

Target: UCAS

HOW MANY DIFFERENT WAYS CAN THINGS GO WRONG?

UCAS, 2058. Less than a year earlier, the great dragon Dunkelzahn had stunned the world by being elected president. Then stunned the world again by dying on his inauguration day. The unrest unleashed by that event hasn’t faded, and it’s not like everything else in the UCAS is going well. Travel to three of the nation’s great cities, and you’ll find plenty of trouble to go around.In Boston, Richard Villiers of the Fuchi Corporation gained a fair amount of stock from Dunkelzahn’s will, but he also lost his head of security to Renraku. He’s feeling both powerful and insecure, which is bad news for the city’s powers that be but great news for the shadows. Meanwhile, in Detroit, everyone and their Doberman are lining up against Damien Knight and Ares, and Knight is going to have to scramble to keep his power. And in Chicago, a nuke and an astral “disease” supposedly cleaned the town up, so the Chicago Containment Zone is open. Outsiders can get inside the core city now—and whatever is inside can get out.Target: UCAS takes Shadowrun players back to one of the most tumultuous years in the Sixth World’s history, providing the information they need to pull off runs in each of these three key cities. Ghouls and bug spirits await, but they’re nothing compared to the fiends that wear suits.
