Our latest campaign book, Jet Set, is now out (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG), giving runners the chance to get a taste of the Grand Tour, mingle with Tír luminaries, and perhaps be contracted to kill Nadja Daviar. Here's the full summary:

THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE

Step this way! There’s no need for you to wait in line with the riff-raff, the common clay of dirty humanity. You can have something better. You can have the good life, filled with the finest food, the most expensive wines, and the most interesting people in the world. There’s a price to pay, of course. There always is. But take a ride, just once, in the aircraft the upper crust uses, and see if you don’t like it. Get a taste of this lifestyle, and see if you won’t do anything to keep it.

In Jet Set, shadowrunners get the chance to rub elbows with the rich and powerful of the world—the socialites, the corporate elite, the royalty, the movers, and the shakers. These are people who know how to get what they want, no matter who they need to step over to get it. The runners may be the help they need to get rid of their latest obstacle—or they could be the next bodies the rich and powerful leave in an expanding trail behind them.

Jet Set is a campaign book with information on the growing tension between Sixth World dragons, the mysterious motives and questions surrounding Nadja Daviar, the opening salvos in political battles that will shake cities and nations in the next year, and more. Filled with plot details, location information, and NPC write-ups, the book is a resource all Shadowrun players can use.

Jet Set is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition.

OK..I am curious: Is Jet Set similar to Corporate Intrigue, Ghost Cartels, and Emergence? Or is it closer to Spy Games and War?
