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.

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.
