Shadowrun: Power Plays (Runner Resource Book)



You can be proactive, shift paradigms, think outside the box, and set aggressive agendas all you want—the megacorporations of the Sixth World are still going to disturb your plans, ruin your day, and screw up the world. They are shadowrunners’ employees and adversaries, the source of cash and the source of despair. Shadowrunners need to know them—because knowing your enemy is the first step to bringing them down.

Power Plays provides updates on the Big Ten megacorporations of the Sixth World, as well as news on a few other corps. Whether you’re taking a job from one of them or going up against one, this book has what you need to know to survive the job.

Power Plays is for use with Shadowrun, Sixth World.

Still waiting on reviews as well... here, official forums, unofficial forums, etc. Several people with it, but no one's really dug in and given a review yet. It's a dense book full of lore, but I'd have expected something to have dropped by now.

Great job Catalyst. You're editors appear to be on top of their game as alway.

"They are shadowrunners’ employees and adversaries"

Nice to know that the PC's gutter trash criminal for hire is actually the employer of entire corporations.

Yeah, I didn't bother with a single double check as I typed that comment and I should have since I was complaining about the consistent failures of a company's professional editors at catching things before they are published. On the other hand I'm just a random person who is not a professional writer or editor. I'm also not asking someone to pay me for things that are poorly edited time and time again.

How much of this book is just information that could be used for any edition? I run 3rd but try to buy the story and fluff heavy stuff for all editions

Mostly fluff, but synched to the current timeline. I'd say 95% fluff and story?

Updates on the "evil" of corps is a welcomed supplement. The current preferences towards the corps which people like to "project" as players/groups would be a good topic for discussion?
I like to imagine an outsider to corps. And their (the corps) attack surface is limitless...

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.
