    On the Rocks
    by Rusty Zimmberman

    THE STREETS ARE ABOUT TO EXPLODE…
    And Puyallup’s local paranormal investigator Jimmy Kincaid is caught right in the middle of it. The neighborhood’s criminal syndicates are on the brink of all-out war, and if they go at it, the streets will run red—literally.

    But Jimmy’s got more problems besides trying to keep the peace between feuding mobsters. Someone’s sending him a very particular message by sending him severed limbs. And then there’s the pairs of hitmen coming after him. Last but certainly not least, he’s got to broker a deal between the biggest elven street gang in Seattle and a vicious Triad gang—and not get himself killed in the bargain.

    And when an old enemy comes to town for revenge, Jimmy finds his already fairly chaotic life completely upended—and never to be the same again. To settle the score, he’ll have to face off against the deadliest assassin ever to stalk the Seattle streets—and use every bit of skill, guile, and luck he has to survive…

    Kill Penalty
    by Clifton Lambert

    THE RULES ARE SIMPLE…
    Redlock is a rising star in the brutal sport of Urban Combat, where teams of armed combatants try to score points against their opponents while shooting it out amid Seattle’s decaying urban landscape. Managed by his mother, a legendary Urban Brawl player until her forced retirement, and fitted with top-line cyberware that makes him better than human, Redlock is on the fast-track to super-stardom—until it all comes crashing down around him.

    WIN OR DIE…
    After sabotage takes him out of the major leagues, Redlock finds himself on the streets for real, alone for the first time ever. But the lure of Urban Brawl is too seductive to ignore, and when his mother lines up another opportunity for him, all her son has to do is go against every instinct he has… Will he sacrifice his one shot back to the majors for the scrappy team that adopted him when he had nowhere else to go, or will Redlock pull the ultimate ambush play on his own teammates?

    For a Few Nuyen More
    by Stephen Dedman

    DARK CLOUDS OF WAR…
    …are gathering among the various criminal factions of Seattle, and Ratatosk, 8-ball, Mute, and the rest of their shadowrunning team and allies are caught in the middle almost before they know what’s even going on. A powerful, highly modified assassin duo is killing bosses and setting the various factions against each other, and the team is called on by both Knight Errant and one of the Mafia groups to find a way to stop the bloodshed before the streets truly run red.

    But while locating these assassins is one thing, stopping them is something else entirely. The duo has been modified to within an inch of their lives, swimming in enough magic and cyberware to make them nearly indestructible. Ratatosk and his crew will have to use every bit of cunning and street smarts they know to take these seemingly unstoppable killers down…before the killers get to them.

    Under Pressure
    by Scott Schletz

    SEARCH AND RECOVER…
    It should have been an easy job for Tycho and his team: Travel to the Sioux Nation, in the region that was once the state of Montana, and investigate what happened to the previous shadowrunning team that had gone up there to check out…something.

    But of course, things are never easy in the shadows, and soon Tycho and his fellow runners are up to their eyeballs in double-crosses and mysterious goings-on—including the seeming complete disappearance of the previous shadowrunning team.

    Their search leads them to the wilds near Yellowstone, where the answers they seek lie deep within the earth…and uncover a secret that, if revealed, could result in the complete destruction of the entire Sixth World…

    Revierbericht 2082

    THE RHINE-RUHR MEGAPLEX
    A huge fusion of different cities and social classes, which together form a melting pot of cultures and subcultures. A juggernaut, a hell built by metahuman itself for some. A paradise of exploitation, shadows and power games for others. And for some, it's just the front yard of their international empire. From the Japanese restaurants in Düsseldorf to the black markets in Cologne, the toxic wasteland of Oberhausen, the anarchist zones in Recklinghausen, the high-security enclaves in Neu-Essen to the deepest basements of the built-up Wuppertal: the gray tones of this gigantic metroplex are as diverse as its inhabitants and its dangers. Where underworld wars rage, corporate powers collide,

    The Revierbericht 2082 is an in-house production by Pegasus Press and a source book for Shadowrun 6 . It offers detailed background information on the individual cities of the Rhine-Ruhrplex, on many places, hotspots such as downtown Düsseldorf or Wuppertal and a deep insight into the power structures between gangs, the underworld and corporations. In addition to descriptions of the culture on the Ruhr, the processes in old mines and the anarchic special rights zone Recklinghausen, a lot of additional material is also offered: NSC values, floor plans, flair tips for the gaming table, equipment and large maps of the entire Plex and selected districts with localized locations.

    Behind the Curtain

    STAGE FREE
    Not only runners have to worry in the shadows so that they return from their assignments with checksticks in their pockets and not with lead in their bodies. The characters' players are also faced with various decisions: who do I want to play, why and where? How do I link my young decker to the group's old warhorse? how can I further develop my background story?

    Exciting stories in the Sixth World also require well-designed adventures, maybe even entire campaigns and settings. It requires multi-layered opponents, interesting locations and maybe it can be something other than the shootout in a seedy alley.

    Behind the curtain is a rule book for Shadowrun 6 that hardly contains any rules. In addition to a few optional suggestions for changes, there are primarily tools for players and game masters: information on character development, group reunification, adventure planning, alternative entry points, and campaign concepts. Do you need a riddled NPC, an adventure on the edge of the actual adventure, a vending machine restaurant menu, an everyday host or want to know what the security guard happened to have in his pocket or on the commlink? You will find it here.

    Vendetta

    BLOOD FOR BLOOD
    Raids on the street, kidnappings, assassinations, exploding restaurants: the German-Italian mafia is caught in a family war and the blood revenge has been sworn. Father and daughter fight for honor, tradition and the leadership of organized crime. In the midst of the preparations for the City War World Championships, the conflict is attracting the attention of authorities and other powers. Will the Mafia survive this war? Will it be the runners? And can a game of city war bring the solution?

    Vendetta is an in-house production by Pegasus Press and a campaign band for Shadowrun 6 , which plays in the Rhein-Ruhr-Plex. In four acts, the runners are drawn into the war between the generations within the Mafia and can experience how this long smoldering conflict is resolved by force. Who will win in the end? What move will the other side plan next? In fully developed runs, with a lot of sandboxes and background information, you can put the fate of the German-Italian mafia in the ADL in your runners' hands at your own gaming table.

    Budenzauber

    In the Rhein-Ruhr-Plex the powerful of the underworld and the corporations rule. Nevertheless, there is a lot to do for runners in the huge Moloch in the backyards and the shady side streets. Often the kiosk is at the center of the action: the Büdchen, which serves as a social safety net, source of supply and illegal transhipment point. Whether it is about lost Critter, stolen beer or lost corporate offspring - hardly anyone can pass these stalls around the next corner.

    Budenzauber is an in-house production by Pegasus Press and an anthology for Shadowrun 6with three individual adventures. All adventures are completely ready to play. In the shadow of the little booths of the Rhein-Ruhr-Plex, the runners are drawn to strange occurrences in the neighborhood that turn out to be more dangerous than anyone could have guessed.
