Shadowrun: Cutting Aces (Deep Shadows Sourcebook)

Watermarked PDF

Hit Your Marks

The hotel bartender who slips you a guest’s room number because he thinks it will help him get lucky. The security guard who lets a team into a top-secret facility because he thinks he’s pitching in on covert-ops training. The business suit who drops ten thousand nuyen on a project because he thinks it’ll earn him fifty thousand.

Marks, all of them, and the Sixth World is full of them. Yeah, blasting your way into a well-guarded facility is fun, but talking your way in, smooth and subtle, might be more rewarding. Almost every kind of shadowrun involves at least a little con artistry, and some of them are full-on long cons. That means you need to sharpen your con game. With tips, plot updates, spells, gear, and more to improve characters’ con abilities, Cutting Aces gives players the swagger and skills they need to swindle the world. It also includes information on one of the Sixth World’s hottest spots for running a con—Istanbul, City of the World’s Desire.

Cuttings Aces is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, and it also contains plot information, story ideas, and characters that can be used with Shadowrun: Anarchy with slight adjustments of character stats.

Is there going to be a dead tree version eventually?

Hmm, 25$ for 168 pages? That's a lot... especially as other recent SR titles had 200-240 pages for the same price. Shadowrun seems one of the most pricey games in the whole hobby. For 25$ you usually get complete corebooks.. I really love the topic of this book but that is too much for me.

You are right that core books are generally around the same price as this one. What I can tell you is that this contains far more than just rules on how to con people. It's also a mini-sourcebook for Istanbul, and works across multiple systems. So it's got some extra value in those areas. But I can totally understand not wanting to take a gamble on a splatbook. Hopefully it'll get a sale sometime. :)

But wait... that is the sale price. A mini-resource for Istanbul? That does offer some appeal. Multiple systems? Meh... That part is an easy thing in the right hands. Though my global game table of players, is keeping me on toes with their excitement for our Shadowrun: Anarchy campaign. I do believe I must keep on the bleeding edge.

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.
