You Make The Call -- - And Pray You're Right!

"They're out there, chumlies. You know they're out there -- the puppeteers who pull the strings on everybody from CEO Damien Knight to the scroffiest born-yesterday street rat. I'm talking bug spirits you can't tell apart from human beings ... magical cabals who want to make us all slaves in their mage-o-cratic utopia ... hate groups so powerful they make the megacorps look like kiddie crooks ... artificial intelligences jerking our chains from so deep inside the Matrix that the hottest decker can't reach them. They're taking over the world -- and NO ONE CAN STOP THEM. In fact, you just might be working for them right now ... "

Threats describes fourteen of the most powerful and influential people, organizations and entities in the Awakened world of Shadowrun. These threats are the biggest of the big players -- magical secret societies, mad scientists, astral monsters and other frightening forces with the power to change the world. Gamemasters and players can decide which threats are real and which are lunatic fantasies from paranoid minds -- or even create their own threats using the guidelines in this book. Any threat, from this sourcebook or from the gamemaster's imagination, can become the ultimate villain in a single adventure or an ongoing campaign. For use with Shadowrun, Second Edition. This sourcebook contains minimal rules information, and by default the material is set in the late 2050s. Also contains 8 full-color pages!

I really think this is a must get for some great background on Shadowrun. Alamos 20k Afraid of the Darke - not a fan of him as much. Lofwy gets his own entry! I love that as the Boss is the face of Shadowrun to me. KSAF! [...]

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.
