It's a new year, so the dozens of products we released last year are old news--time to build a legacy for the current year. That starts with Street Legends Supplemental (Battleshop, DriveThru), which contains ten more profiles of the kind of people that people like telling stories about. Here's the rundown:

UNUSUAL SUSPECTS

Ten people. Ten very different people. A pirate who has made himself into one of the most wanted men in the world. A datathief whose skill is only matched by his flair and panache. Two corporate giants whose personalities—and actual physical makeup—couldn’t be more different. A troll whose name has a history much older than herself. And other individuals with stories and secrets of their own.

Some of them are people you want on your side, and some of them are people who could be very dangerous enemies if you aren’t careful. All of them are people you should know, because all of them have something—money, power, knowledge, or all three—that you can use.

Street Legends Supplemental follows the format of the Street Legends book by presenting information on ten characters from the Shadowrun universe, sharing stories about their activities in the Sixth World and also offering complete game information and statistics for them. Each character also comes with plot information gamemasters can use as they develop their campaigns. While it is a companion to Street Legends, Street Legends Supplemental can be enjoyed entirely on its own.

Street Legends Supplemental is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition.

Kane was a BLAST to work on.  He's a fun, fun character.  And as an added bonus, I managed to sneak in some character development for another Jackpointer at the same time. ;)

He knew that the corporations maintained data on individual
shadowrunners and had done so for decades. He had implemented
security features so that the site did not repeat enough for people to
gather network analysis, no matter how many people were logged on.
Even when it would, the amount of information collected on data
traffic should have made analysis considerably difficult. Part of the
reason he recruited Puck was to ensure that there weren’t other means
that he couldn’t predict that technomancers might be able to find.
...
The node was burning, collapsing, and on the verge of taking him
with it. He had what he came for: the dossiers that had been assembled
on JackPoint and its members, including analysis and concepts of
operations to infiltrate and co-opt the group and specific members. He
bashed the shredded files repeatedly with JackHammer, using it to feed
a viral code that would erase and overwrite the data repeatedly before
destroying it for good.


Magical Societies on the other hand sounds interesting...

Less then 10 days after Christmas?  LOL.

I knew I should have saved some of that Christmas cash.

Sigh.

And this has what to do with the topic?

Thankfully the wife is a gamer.  I could justify the "expense" as a source of more ideas for our Shadowrun game.
