Open Season!

If the Ork Underground is going to become an official district in Seattle, it’s going to need some cleaning up. Even if it’s not, some of the criminals down there have a pesky habit of bringing their activities to the surface, and plenty of people want them eliminated. Seattle law enforcement has had enough, and ADA Dana Oaks is determined to bring down some of the higher-profile criminals of the Underground—starting with a mob enforcer who goes by the name of Junior.

Criminals in the Underground don’t go down easy, though, and shadowrunners are going to have to use all their skills to track Junior down. When they find him, they might discover that their task isn’t quite as straightforward as they may have thought.

Continuing plotlines started in SRM 04-00: Back in Business, Hiding in the Dark introduces new characters while giving the runners the chance to solidify their friendships with characters they met in the previous adventure—or maybe make new enemies, or even drive wedges of enmity even deeper.

Shadowrun Missions
 is a living campaign, giving players the opportunity to have adventures that share the same setting and have fun while doing it. Missions are played at local game stores, conventions, game days, and as home games. Players who participate in these scenarios will have a real opportunity to influence the Shadowrun game world and play their characters in events worldwide.

As far as a prewritten adventure goes, this was a pretty good one. The encounters are extremely well written and there is enough information to easily pad it out to last longer than four hours if you have the time for it. It seems well balanced, [...]

It’s not too often that you find the morality play explored in Shadowrun - most of the jobs are quick, dirty and simple. ‘Hiding in the Dark’ offers a very different perspective on the Underground of Seattle, as the characters are co-opted into [...]

Shadowrun Missions have come a long way from their humble beginnings - this one is among the better published adventures for Shadowrun I've read in a while. It sets the runners up with the job of tracking down a suspect for the police, a mob bos [...]

A couple of news stories and a police report set the scene before the Introduction runs through the standard background information for the GM on adventure layout and the specifics of running a game in a shared campaign. The Mission Synopsis then lays [...]

Really liked the mission, it has a nice twist in the end that my players joked about it thinking it was too easy, just to discover it was. It's kind of a milky run, unless the GM really decides to tough it up. And since 2 of the 5 players were playing [...]

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.
