Opters: Exotics


Diverse worlds require a diversity of options and opportunities. Equally diverse beings expand the opportunity of enjoyment for players and gamemasters alike.

Exotics brings to your gaming table the options for three additional character types; Shapeshifters – Sapient animals, critters, that can assume the forms of metahumanity and more when given the chance to do so. Drakes – An alternative set of mechanics presented that utilizes existing character design and development for players to explore options beyond that of servitude to the Greats. Finally, Monads – With options to bring them to the table without overwhelming game groups while opening new avenues, and new venues, to those desiring such.

With the gamemasters permission – of course.

25 cents per page of a pdf seems rather excessive, even if Catalyst had a better rep for editing and 6th edition was better. It's at least double what I'd be willing to pay based upon owning a lot (too much) of the 6th edition Shadowrun stuff.

And that of course is your choice.

This is an excellent guide for those who want to play non-metahuman species, specifically Shapeshifters, Drakes, and AI/EI/Monads in Shadowrun 6th ed, as well as a great extension of the lore.

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.
