The Meaning of Fear
As a rule, shadowrunners aren’t afraid of things that go bump in the night—because usually, it’s them. They know, though, that they aren’t the only thing to worry about. The universe and the metaplanes have things they can’t imagine, things they shouldn’t imagine, because even thinking about them can drive you insane.
Some of those things are coming.
Scotophobia... [click here for more]
New Orleans moves from night to night—the day is just a brief break between the times when the real action happens. Once the sun goes down, jazz spills into the streets, spirits walk free, and people indulge in all manner of semi-legal and illegal activities.
It’s a prime sprawl for crime, and there’s money to be made in the shadows. But first, shadowrunners need to know... [click here for more]
The Animal Within
Metahumanity is great, but what if they could do more? What if they could breathe water like a fish, balance like a cat, or pound things like a gorilla? Shifters know the answer to those questions, because they do those things. Manifesting animal traits, shifters have a range of powers, appearances, and weaknesses, making them a fascinating part of the shadows.

The Cost of Greatness
Every step, every advantage, every millisecond counts.

With it, you can learn about more metatypes for characters, including hobgoblins, giants, centaurs, and sasquatch;... [click here for more]

Know and Go
You know the basic advice—shoot straight, conserve ammo, etc.—but that’s far from the only things runners need to know. How to you get into where you’re not supposed to be? How to you stay unseen in spots with a thousand eyes watching? And how do you break the law regularly without being caught?
Shoot Straight provides runner-to-runner advice in a range of areas,... [click here for more]

THE INFINITE FRONTIER
The last great undiscovered country is vast, wild, and weirder than you can possibly imagine. And it’s nearby, waiting, accessible by the press of a button, or a simple gesture, or even just a thought. The Matrix holds a whole lot more than selfies and cat videos—it has artificial intelligences, electronic ghosts of people formerly alive (or perhaps still living), and deep... [click here for more]

In Seattle, the gold glitters brighter and the dungeons are darker, meaning the shadows in between are the widest and most intense in the world.

Kill or be killed. Eye for an eye. Get yours while you can. Shadowrunners—and most of the other residents of the Sixth World—are told from birth that those are the principles you must follow to survive. Thinking of others is for suckers. Take care of your own and hope you don’t die early.
But some runners think that’s no way to live. They know the world is stacked against them,... [click here for more]
SCREAM YOUR TRUTH
The voices will be heard. The powers of the Sixth World want to control everything, keeping the world pacified through bland entertainment and milquetoast messages.
But they can’t keep everyone quiet. People have ideas screaming to get out and the tools to record and spread them. Whether they’re starting a new band, recording guerrilla trid dramas, or launching a pirate tridcast... [click here for more]
Sew ’Em Up, Ride ’Em Out
The only reason shadowrunners have scars to show off during their downtime is that when they got hit, someone had the guts, the skill, and the speed to pull them out of whatever drekstorm they’d gotten themselves into. Maybe it was a DocWagon High Threat Response team who rode in to save the day, or maybe a teammate who’d picked up some handy medical skills in the course... [click here for more]
Shadowrunners come in all shapes, sizes, and skill sets. Some of them do things you immediately know will be useful. For others—
well, let’s say their usefulness sometimes sneaks up on you.

IN THE SHADOW OF DRAGONS
Shadowrunners know that the most dangerous position to have in the Sixth World is being perceived as a threat by the powerful. Drakes are the perfect example—their power is considerable, which means they almost always have someone after them. They often end up seeking protection by serving dragons and doing their bidding—which means they represent dragons’ interests in... [click here for more]

Ride the Crashing Wave
Magic is wild. Magic is undisciplined. You can try to impose order and understanding on it, but that’s just surface. Underneath is chaos, an erratic heart beating to a staggering rhythm. You don’t control it, any more than a surfer controls twenty-meter-tall wave; you don’t direct the wave, you ride it, capture a piece of its power, and hope to survive. If you do it right,...

The Universe of Magic
Magic cannot be contained or easily defined. It can barely be controlled. It is large, omnipresent, and multi-faceted. It contains multitudes.
A few of those multitudes are in this book, such as Pierre Dubois, media personality and Psionist researcher; a band of fortune seekers known as Treasure Hunters, Inc.; strange crystalline entities who may be forming a dangerous... [click here for more]
You're not a noob. You're not a poseur. You're a shadowrunner. When you pick a weapon, it's with a purpose, and 99 times out of 100, that purpose is to bring suckers down.

Gun H(e)aven 3is about options. Pistols, rifles, machine guns, even a flamethrower—they're... [click here for more]
Shoot straight, conserve ammo—shadowrunners often think about threats in terms of guns and bullets. That’s thinking too small. Why shoot someone when you can drain their entire bank account without coming anywhere near them?
Or you can burn whatever ID they’re using, forcing them to restrict their movements and travel? Or you can broadcast their current location to all their... [click here for more]
You can be proactive, shift paradigms, think outside the box, and set aggressive agendas all you want—the megacorporations of the Sixth World are still going to disturb your plans, ruin your day, and screw up the world. They are shadowrunners’ employees and adversaries, the source of cash and the source of despair. Shadowrunners need to know them—because knowing your enemy is the... [click here for more]
They’re all here. Everyone of them. The legends, the liars, the betrayers, the winners, the craven, the brave, the powerful, the down-trodden. The people who leaked secrets and got killed for it, and the secrets that no one has discovered yet. The dark bargains, the shady deals, the desperate maneuvers. Everything that makes the Sixth World the high-revving nightmare... [click here for more]
It's What You Know
Powerful financiers have been sent to prison for sending inside information to investment bankers so they could trade based on things they weren’t supposed to know.

Information is power, and lately the Sixth World has been full... [click here for more]
The Job of Death
Some people call it wetwork. Others call it murder. A small group calls it justice. It's assassination and it's one of the jobs shadowrunners might be hired to do. And given that people are, you know, pretty protective about their lives, anyone who takes such a job is going to have to be at the top of their game to pull the job off and collect a payday. Especially if they plan... [click here for more]
RISK IT ALL!
Shadows darken and deepen. They’re cast by the enormous, world-striding megacorporations that grasp for power and strangle humanity in their clutches. By 2080, most of the planet has given in—bowing and scraping before their corporate overlords; selling their souls to the almighty nuyen. The corps gotta make a trillion, no matter who dies.
But in the darkest depths, defiance flickers.... [click here for more]
Big Bang Boom
Look, do you want a really nice gun, or do you want something that’s going to do the job? When you’re firing a projectile at high speeds, do you really need frills like blued steel, personalized grips, or a safety? And when you’re a real-sized being—like a troll or an ork, instead of one of the punier things—don’t you want something that was designed from the ground up with... [click here for more]
Life and Love
The definitions of life and love change in the Sixth World based on who you talk to. There is a wider range of sapience than people in the previous century dreamed of, and regardless of the forms they come in, when two minds meet, they can forge a connection. Shadowrunners are going to have to deal with wrinkles in the processes of life and love they might not have considered,... [click here for more]
THE CLOAK OF DEATH
It’s thick. Luxurious. Concealing. The cloak of death will make you feared, envied, and maybe even wealthy. It will also smother your soul.

Assuming their conscience doesn’t eat them alive.

The Jungle Next Door
You live in any sprawl long enough, you’ll find out that there’s a lot more to it than businessmen and soykaf stalls. Any sprawl worth its mettle has its dark corners, its forgotten places, its spots that are just as wild and untamed as the deepest rainforest.
Seattle, the prime metroplex in the world for shadowrunning, is filled with such places, and Sprawl Wildsgives... [click here for more]
The Wild Calls
Gangers. Corp security. Mr. Johnson. Organized crime. Other shadowrunners. Running in the Sixth World does not exactly lack for obstacles, but only foolish runners worry solely about metahuman opponents. There are plenty of other ways the world can kill you, from throat-ripping martachoras to blood-sucking chupacabras, from the aggressive gamma spider to the swarming harpy. While most...

The Bullet of Shame
The beauty of Neo-Tokyo is, you don’t have to physically hurt someone to really damage them. The power of shame and social standing is so great that sometimes presenting the right facts in the right situation (or wrong situation, depending on your perspective) is enough to ruin someone. It requires more finesse than just filling a room with bullets, but isn’t that the mark of... [click here for more]

Over the Edges
The Sixth World has been carefully divided and partitioned to keep people in their place, living under the thumbs of those who draw the lines.
