An excellent resource for Shadowrun 4th Ed. The history entries were quite interesting but I preferred the brief look at the various nations of the Sixth World. The quality of the PDF & world map is excellent, although the map colours could have been a bit brighter.

This book is very well put together with its time line and atlas - an excellent and easy to use source book. You get a lot of bang for your buck with this one.

It is very easy to see that this is the culmination of twenty years of Shadowrun publications. Basically, this should be read by all existing players of the game, and by those coming into it. Whilst the language in some sections is definitely 'M' Rated, GMs should exercise some degree of caution when recommending it. However, that aside, this is a fantastic resource for GMs and players alike. It is comprised of two sections, the first being a history of the Shadowrun world and then an almanac of countries. The timeline contains information that I hadn't encountered before, or perhaps have forgotten over the last four editions worth of source-books. By collating it all in one book, and then rounding it off, fans can now see a logical rationale for the Sixth World and all of the signposts that created the SR setting. Whilst FASA, WizKids and FanPro have all done a good job of creating a believable setting, this book caps it off very nicely.

This will be the sort of sourcebook I'll keep by me in every game, and flip through every now and then as recreational reading. The inclusion of a small amount of fiction, interspersed with the timeline was well-delivered and makes reading the book a greater pleasure.

Basically, this is the history of Shadowrun.

'Nuff said. I love Shadowrun.

Some language makes it not for the kiddies, but otherwise it's fine.

Oh, and the map is major awesome.

4/5, for not being something I can recommend to the kiddies who are new to Shadowrun.

That said, it has a lot of information you can't find anywhere, not even on Dumpshock's Sixth World Wiki. On one hand, you'll probably not need it, on the other, it's good to know.
