Strange Magic

Only one place has it all in 2056 -- Aztlan, the world's only corporate nation.

Built on the drug trade, consolidated country by country through ruthless business deals, run by a powerful and mysterious corporation and sustained by a national faith in the Aztec gods, Aztlan can be a runner's greatest dream or his most chilling nightmare. For at the heart of war-torn Aztlan lies Aztechnology, a potential mother lode of paydata and newtech, and an almost certain source of death. Listen carefully to the rumors and judge for yourself which are true or false—Aztlan guards its secrets well, and Aztechnology will kill to keep it that way.

The Aztlan sourcebook describes the people, history, economy and current affairs of the nation of Aztlan, including details on Aztechnology Corporation, the unusual magic practiced by Aztlaner citizens, and the Yucatán conflict. This book also describes many aspects of life in Tenochtitlán (formerly Mexico City), and provides new rules for Aztlaner magic and Aztechnology corporate personnel.

Aztlan contains some game statistics for Shadowrun, Second Edition, but is largely mechanics-free.

Great first edition book with a lot of fluff in it that can be easily used in fourth edition to bring back information from the 50's to the 70's. Plus, it has one of the best shadowtalks EVER! [...]

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
