New Data Trails Sourcebook for ShadowRun Available

Greetings Program! I always did like the idea of going into a computer, into the internet and just flying around inside of it. Movies like Tron and Lawnmower Man (don't laugh. I liked that movie) and TV shows like Futurama (where they go into the internet) have always been fascinating to me. I'm hoping that we get to that point sometime relatively soon. Well, the latest sourcebook for Shadowrun is right up my alley, since Catalyst Game Labs takes you to the Matrix with their new Data Trails sourcebook.

Catalyst Game Labs releases 2 new ShadowRun books

Catalyst Game Labs takes you into the future with two new ShadowRun books (one an e-release) available now.

The first is Aetherology. When the real-world (full of ogres and dragons) and the net-world (with its sentient programs) aren't strange enough, there's Aetherology. This book explores altered states of consciousness (whether your player wants to be part of them or not) and the powers and creatures that govern such states. You thought things could get crazy before? You've not seen anything yet.

The second book is London Falling (and yes, now London Calling is stuck in my head), an adventure book for Shadowrun gaming in Jolly, Old London. There are four adventures within it. They were originally designed to be played at conventions, so each one can either be used as a stand-alone, or be integrated into your current campaign.

Street Grimoire PDF/Print Preorder Available

Catalyst Game Labs has started taking orders for their new Street Grimoire book for Shadowrun.



From the website:

And the books are really starting to flow…ready for the next Shadowrun Core Rulebook expansion, cause it’s here: Street Grimoire!

Magic can burn your brain and sear your soul. It can inject power into every millimeter of your veins, or leave you a lump of ashes at the end of a dark alley. It’s dangerous, but to spellslingers in the Sixth World, it’s worth it. Because magic is power, and power in the Sixth World needs to be grabbed with both hands.
