Shadowrun: Tales from the UCAS: Age of Rust

Watermarked PDF

Layers of Power

The topmost layers of power have been scraped away, some wealth has been removed, but that doesn’t mean the western borders of the UCAS have nothing of worth. Hidden weapons may yet be found. Secret powers may rise. And maneuvering for wealth? What would the Sixth World be without it?

Age of Rust shines a spotlight on a part of the UCAS that is disintegrating but still has plenty of intrigue and shadow-work happening—maybe more than before, since the higher powers who might tamp it down have left town, leaving the layers below to rise up and fight. 

Tales from the UCAS

Combining immersive materials with spotlights on specific areas of the UCAS, the Tales from the UCAS series provides plot hooks, rules, and other material to add intrigue and excitement to your Shadowrun game while exploring how the changes that hit the UCAS will continue to shape the nation—and how shadowrunners will adapt and exploit what they encounter.

This series has plot and setting information for use with any version of Shadowrunand rules for use with Shadowrun, Sixth World.

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.
