Cutting Aces is now LIVE
« on: (02:01:51/12-10-16) »
PDF release I just tripped over.

http://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/200337/Shadowrun-Cutting-Aces-Deep-Shadows-Sourcebook

As usual, if you have any errata catches, lore mistakes, typos, etc, drop 'em in here and let me know! I'll pass 'em on to the Errata Team and, if we're fast, we can get fixes in before it goes to print.

Also, feel free to discuss it here as well. I got called in for some last-minute aid, but I haven't gotten a chance to look over the book myself yet!

Cutting Aces (Deep Shadows Sourcebook)



Hit Your Marks
The hotel bartender who slips you a guest’s room number because he thinks it will help him get lucky. The security guard who lets a team into a top-secret facility because he thinks he’s pitching in on covert-ops training. The business suit who drops ten thousand nuyen on a project because he thinks it’ll earn him fifty thousand.

Marks, all of them, and the Sixth World is full of them. Yeah, blasting your way into a well-guarded facility is fun, but talking your way in, smooth and subtle, might be more rewarding. Almost every kind of shadowrun involves at least a little con artistry, and some of them are full-on long cons. That means you need to sharpen your con game. With tips, plot updates, spells, gear, and more to improve characters’ con abilities, Cutting Aces gives players the swagger and skills they need to swindle the world. It also includes information on one of the Sixth World’s hottest spots for running a con—Istanbul, City of the World’s Desire.

Cuttings Aces is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, and it also contains plot information, story ideas, and characters that can be used with Shadowrun: Anarchy with slight adjustments of character stats.

And now I'll have ZZTop stuck in my head for days.
...which is actually pretty cool, all things considered.

And a cost of 5, yeah.

The line got shifted one column, losing the price along the way. Availability should be 5, and you should be able to figure the rest (aside from cost) from there.

But it's on The List.

Actually the painade and the lapel dagger share the same line sans the cost of the dagger.

Noted.

I'll see what I can find out.

Meanwhile ... there's fluff! People should read the fluff.  Lot of good bits in there.

Mmm, fluff...

Not so sure about the hair or face, but I love the outfit on the dwarf lady -- I think this is the first time I've seen SR art with a lady dwarf all dressed up nicely -- just a small pet peeve before now.

Just out in PDF for now, I assume?  I really want this --  but i really want it hardcopy, so I guess I'm not hinting it for Christmas.

Just PDF so far, though pre-orders are up on the CGL store. I'm guessing street dates to be late Jan / early Feb.

Hmm.  Fluff.  Let's read the fluff, tum-ti-tum, lalala, OH MY F****** GOD!!!

Thank you Cutting Aces, I am now cowering under my blanket clutching a shotgun and waiting for the apocalypse
