Shadowrun: 2050


Rewind and Reload

Chrome eyes. Computers called "decks." Big hair, big cyberlimbs and bigger guns. It's Shadowrun in the year it all started. Take a step back to Shadowrun's roots with Shadowrun 2050, a book that combines Fourth Edition rules — the smoothest, most accessible rule set Shadowrun has ever had - with the setting that first made the Sixth World a legend.

Shadowrun 2050 has everything players and gamemasters need to dive into the grimy beauty that kicked off one of the greatest roleplaying settings of all time. With information on how to adapt Fourth Edition Matrix, gear, and magic rules for the 2050 setting, as well as in-universe information about the powers of the world, what shadowrunners will be up to, and who they'll be running into, Shadowrun 2050 puts a new twist on the classic setting.

Captain Chaos. Maria Mercurial. The Laughing Man. Sally Tsung. JetBlack. Hatchetman. Nightfire. And the Shadowland poster who just called himself The Big "D." These people and many others are waiting for you in the year that started it all, a setting brought back to life with new, full-color artwork showing the chrome, dirt, neon, and darkness that was in the heart of Shadowrunwhen it started and remains at its core today.

Shadowrun 2050 is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition.

Shadowrun 2050 is an outstanding sourcebook bringing back the zeal of the game's first edition with modern rules and sensibilities. Included are fluff chapters explaining the Sixth World in 2050, with meaty sections on Seattle, Chicago, and Hong Kong, [...]

I really liked this product but I primarily purchased it to read and think back to 1st and 2nd edition days. I have no intention of running a 2050 setting game at this time, but it definitely gives me ideas if I want to do it. I really liked the matrix [...]

This could have been a great book but just falls flat. 2/3rds of the book are all about whos who in 2050. Its like cliff notes from corporate shadowfiles and some other books. Then you get to the rules for magic and frankly with how easy it is to summo [...]

I remember playing a ton of Shadowrun in my youth, with the very first edition, and I really enjoy the nostalgia trip provided by Shadowrun 2050. It uses the latest version of the Shadorun rules, which is an improvement, although I fondly remember the [...]

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.
