Shadowrun: Street Wyrd (Core Magic Rulebook)


Power Surge

The power to shape the world can also tear it apart. The power to summon spirits and gain allies can also conjure enemies and lead to your own destruction. And the power to fill objects with magic is also the ability to make them blow up in your face.

Shadowrunners learn about power the hard way—by being on the wrong end of it. That means they often gather it to them however they can, consequences be damned. Street Wyrd is a guide to all sorts of Awakened power, from spells to adept powers to new spirits to enhanced enchanting rules. It also gives runners the power to make their own spells to unleash on their enemies. Because runners know that the power you grab for yourself is the only thing that stays with you.

Street Wyrd is the core magic rulebook for Shadowrun, Sixth World

Adding magic to traditional PC's will give a major lift to power. The right adept powers and magic qualities will also give a crucial edge cost reduction.
And a timely augmentation will raise that bar. So an Awakened Decker maybe? Anything to counter the Cybered out, Essence depleted, "soulless" PC's as the only way to build is a welcomed change.

I finally got a look at this through a friend. Wow, what an embarrassment to the history of SR this book is. Wonky & obviously untested rules, half-baked spell design, spells that exist solely to manipulate the game mechanics, goofy ideas, childish and unclear writing, senseless ways to do things, world-altering abilities characters never used to have, imbalance everywhere (by it's own admission in places)... this book adds even more heat and slop to the hot mess to that is 6e.

If you are a fan of older editions, don't waste your time or blood pressure. If you like 6e, well, you'll probably like this just fine. I genuinely wish you happy gaming. I wish you could have seen SR back in the days before CGL though. That was a pretty good game.

I'd like to see the 4e software creation rules or something like them in this edition.

The programs are so bare bones, I can't imagine what that would look like.

If you take away the spell creation rules, spell selection is pretty bare bones as well. Spell creation is pretty easy.
I'd just hate to see deckers be left out with no rules to create their own programs.

I just don't think the game's creators are willing to expand on the 4th ed rules that could require access to some specialized resources and some potentially long test intervals.
What you could/couldn't do was not explained categorically but "anything" was possible given enough time.
So sixth world can adapt hosts/PANS to this role?

The magical groups rule is a good addition. I only wish that a similar rule was in the general player character's set.
Too much inflexibility was written into previous systems on this.
With wars, disasters, mass disappearances, in a post modern technological setting I think there would be obvious reasons for characters to organize against them and explore just on principle. I mean they are already exceptional individuals with superhuman abilities so why not?
Unless that is the player does not want to know the world beyond missions and pay for them.

Progress is made with the spell creation rules. Now I hope the matrix book has some similar creation rules. Also I think the dice rules could be changed to reduce the amount/type of dice for tests. I'm amazed that so many "vets" of this system never mention how difficult it is to glare at 15+ 6 sided dice every roll.

Even their table of content has mistakes... Waiting for the IP to be used by another company.

What gets me is that they actually have the balls to credit proof readers and still put out a product that has repeated lines in the TOC and errors in grammar/spelling. Proofers should read the doc, not casually scan it will a spellcheck and then claim they have.

Hmmm, I'm going to need to be sold on this one. From the previews, I don't see anything new/different here.

I gather there are now magic bullets and healing potions? Any purchasers able to comment?

Lol another quality product from Catalyst. How about you hire someone to actually proof read your product before release, you muppet. There is a spelling error in the second sentence of your introduction. if that is any indication as to the quality of your product then I will once again pass.

Which line? I couldn't spot the error in the preview.

If you are curious, I'd check it sooner than later, Catalyst have a habit of deleting comments.

I am surprised that these comments are still here. They have been periodically deleting any negative comments on their books. Anyone think a company that actually cares about SR might get the property some day?

Only if shadowrun fans stop buying the game for an entire edition and the product becomes worthless to this company. Sadly there are plenty of other bad companies out there who have control of big IP. These days I think you are often better served with a small indie game where the author shows they actually care about the product they have released.

Issue is in the Fourth Sentence of the Second Paragraph of the Introduction.

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.
