Falls from Grace

Once they were at the top of their field, or on the way there. Pro athletes, looking to make bank through fat contracts and endorsement deals, only to have their careers derailed by serious injuries and maybe a bad choice or two. Once their value on the playing field is done, they’re left high and dry, cut loose by the teams and corps who used to love them. 

So when you’re income is gone but you’ve still got some physical skills, where else do you go to make a living but the shadows? Ingentis Athletes rounds up ten characters, giving their backgrounds and game statistics, with plot hooks that can help them be used in a wide variety of campaigns. On top of that, each character is a troll variant, so the book has information on making troll variant characters, including giants, fomorians, cyclops, and minotaurs. Broaden your game and character options with this book!

Ingentis Athletes is part of the Shadow Stock line of books for Shadowrun, Sixth World, offering a selection of characters and rules for using them in your game.

I agree, the optics on this supplement do not not look good. I hate how they bury the meta-variant rules at the end with Zero fluff. I feel like the meta-variants never get enough background to help play them or make them interesting. You know what they could do. They could just bury this with a ton of well written material after this so everyone forgets about it. Although at this point its not looking good.

Wait.

A game that deliberately uses orcs and trolls as proxies for Black people just released a book filled with athletes who all happen to just be trolls, turned to crime. I know it is easy to be tone deaf, but at this point in 2020 maybe try just a little bit?

Shadowrun’s been that way since the beginning, and it takes time to make adjustments to books that are in production. I think you’re underestimating just how fast this cultural shift is all happening. Don’t forget when this setting first came out, this was considered progress.

Also, please don’t say you think they should be police instead. &@%$ the police.

And why try?
It's a setting using classical fantasy races in a high-tech, dystopian world... Does it really have to be PC? I don't think so.

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.
