Lots of good info. There were some bold choices to alter the usual format of shadowtalk/jackpoint, which didn't necessarily pay off. QC on some of the stories could have been better, but others were very good. A decent source of inspiration that could have been much better with a bit of love and polish.

I'm a long time shadowrun fan. I own almost everything published in English, just missing a few things from 2nd edition era. And I think is probably the least useful thing I've ever bought. I am not sure what it is supposed to be for? If you are familiar with all the shadowrun lore, its mostly going to be annoying because of the "unreliable narrator" angle giving half truths or straight up propaganda. And if you don't know SR lore and were hoping to get a leg up, this isn't going to help you because its almost completely detail free.

I mean, they drop two new Great Dragons into the world. And sure, I've long thought that there were too many European Great Dragons and not enough others. But if you introduce a Great Dragon and all you can find to say is "She lives in India and likes nagas and buddhists", what exactly is the point?

The whole book is just full of fluffy, detail free blurbs on various things. Some of which are just oddly wrong. Like the Astral Space Protection Society article saying they are bankrolled by Hestaby, which that's histroy and Wuxing bankrolls them now. Which is referred to in another article on another topic.

Its sometimes amusing, but its definitely not informative.

This supplement has no sensible reason to exist while a wikia exists for Shadowrun.

When I saw this was coming out, I thought it would be ver much like the Sixth World Almanac. It's not even close. The entries are all written in widely different tones and styles. No doubt because of the neo-anarchist source but it makes for a disjointed read. There's a surprising lack of hooks too. You really need to have a familiarity with previous editions to make use of this book. There is a silver cloud here: this was bad enough that I have decided not to purchase any more 6th edition products unless they get better reviews.
