The Rio Gambit happens after 2062, and so does the Ute annexation by Pueblo, so I wouldn't require them on a map titled "world2062". I was mentioning information from books published after Year of the Comet. Those books thus are set after 2061, but those information should have already appeared on a map in 2062.

Along the same line...I'm gearing up to start a 2050-based campaign and am looking for a 6th World map in 2050 - any chance of pointing me in the direction of a good source?  The 6th World Almanac is great...is there anything similar for the 1E time frame?  Alternatively, if it exists, a list of border changes from 2050 to 2070s.
The second ed core rulebook came with a map that is labled: '(most of) north america' and second ed was 2053. I only have it in hard copy I'm afraid. But it shouldn't be too hard to find now that you have a name to search for ;)

Good lord that's some serious thread necromancy. For a current map you can use my KMZ to overlay on Google: https://www.dropbox.com/s/mt7x9eoifb0uy39/SR_Nations_LayerToKML.kmz

I don't recall if it was ever discussed: Did anyone claim responsibility for Dunkelzahn's assassination?

Not that I'm aware of. I think it's pretty widely known by now that he offed himself to power the Dragonheart.

That's just what his PR people wanted you to think to make it sound more noble.

I heard it was all a testing of a Prototype Microwavable Jiffy Pop Popcorn gone horribly wrong.

The buttery smell at the blast site sort of gave it away.   ;D

As a popcorn addict with a nostalgic love for Jiffy Pop, I have to say there are worse ways to go out.  :D

Actually, I believe that in-game it's still a mystery; the Dragonheart isn't a publically-known item, so him suiciding to power it (in the emergency bid to shut down the Aztlan Locus and the Bridge they were creating) would be even less well-known as Harlequin's sending multiple runner teams on astral quests in order to essentially do the same at other spike/bridge points.

Which means that ICly, conspiracy theories no doubt continue to abound.  My personal favorite is the 'military/spook' in the Portfolio.

Agreed with Wyrm. There are RUMORS on conspiracy theory sites that say Dunkelzhan killed himself, though the reason for doing that is unknown. Keep in mind, these are the sites that Plan 9 says are a little wacky. Anyone with actual KNOWLEDGE of the facts is far too close to it to go blabbing, either because it hurts their agenda, or it would get them killed.

Assets inc., Nadja Daviar, Ghostwalker, Aina Dupree, Ehran the Scribe, Harlequin and Lofwyr are probably the only ones that know the full story. Have i forgotten anyone?

Edit: Yes i have. Add Frosty and Talon to the list.

Well you can remove Aina from the list, since she's dead...

Physically, at least, I'm pretty sure she is.
Spiritually, however, that's another question... one I hope the writers will answer eventually.

Physically, she's six feet under Arran. Spiritually, on the other hand...I've got a feeling that Dunkie's gift of "hope" given to her in his will was more than just a kind gesture.

Been toying with a scenario where Ysrthgrathe is literally pulling a Harlequin and putting together a runner team to go retrieve her wayward soul via a metaplanar jaunt, because while he is still a Horror Prick he has a soft spot for Aina and wants her back in the game.
Plus he knows it will grate on her nerves to no end knowing that he had aided her so.

He would do it himself, but something is interfering with his link to Aina.  He can still sense her, but not much more, so he is looking to use some tracking magicks.
Plus he suspects she may be in realms that he won't be able to enter himself.
While he can't enter the physical realm at present, he can still yank on the strings of one of his puppets to have them handle recruiting and organizing the runners. 

Of course this will not go unnoticed by certain parties, especially when the runners raid the property she left to Harlequin who had left it pretty much exactly the way she left it as a tribute to her memory.  Hilarity is sure to follow and the runners may need to think and talk quick on their feet to make the best of the situation.
