Total Dark

Voices scream in the darkness. Voices of the lost drift through the night. Their sound is despair, sorrow, and terror. The noise grinds at your soul, but only thing worse than listening to the chorus of pain is joining it.

The world is changing. Desperate times require desperate measures, and the ground beneath your feet will shake when those measures are meted out. Hold on, buckle up, and try to survive. Parts of the world are cutting to black—so keep your guard up, be prepared, and don’t let the dark consume you.

Cutting Black is a campaign book to help launch players and gamemasters into Shadowrun, Sixth World. With breaking news and world-shaking events, it provides material to carry players through months of games—if they can survive that long.

Shadowrun Dice Roller App Now Available!

We’re excited to announce the release of a new mobile tool for Shadowrun—the Shadowrun Dice Roller!

This app, now available for iOS and Android, rolls up to forty D6s, since we all know Shadowrun needs plenty of them. And they’re not just any dice—there are currently seven different types, each with its own color, custom design on the 5s and 6s, and individual animation when you roll a hit or a one. Each one is themed to a classic Shadowrun archetype, so there are street samurai dice, hacker dice, face dice, mage dice, rigger dice, adept dice, and shaman dice!

You can roll dice one at a time, choose an amount to roll, create your own customized roll, or use one of the presets for common dice rolls (like primary attack, defense, spellcasting, hacking, and so on), making it easy for you to quickly throw the right amount of dice. The dice roller tallies hits and glitches automatically, and it also tells you the total amount rolled, in case you’re doing an initiative roll.

The app is filled top to bottom with cyberpunk flavor. From the appearance of the dice to the sound effects to the background wallpaper, the whole app is designed to convey a Shadowrun feel.

While the roller is specifically designed for Shadowrun, it can be used with any D6-based game. As long as you have your device nearby, you’ll always have enough dice to get a game going. So get the dice roller now, and get playing!
