[SR5] List of all the books

(1/6) > >>

I have been into other Tabletop RPG's for a long time and have recently been looking into investing in Shadowrun. Naturally I went to the Catalyst Game Labs website which directed me to I start looking into the books on that site and became rather confused. It seems like the website has a mix of SR4 and SR5 content with no logical way of separating them. Luckily it seems like each of the sub-menu items under the "Books" menu contains only books for one version, but there is no easily discernible way to tell which sub-menu items are SR5 and which are SR4. Furthermore, it would appear that many SR5 books can't be found on the site at all. I was looking into buying what some would call the "core" books (CRB, Run Faster, Street Grimoire and Run&Gun) and could only find two of the four.

If not the official website, where do I go to learn about all SR5 books without having to filter through SR4 content? Also, I have only ever gone to an RPG's website for errata so where do I get errata for the books I was unable to find on

Prime Mover:
Social media for fans and freelancers best source of info, Catalyst not great about having online presence for Shadowrun.  Been toying with idea of doing blog or something to compile releases and do some reviews.

DriveThruRPG has section for 5th edition, good place to look as well.

Yeesh. Social media is great if you are up to date with current events. Not so great if you have to catch up on the past four years of book development. While I understand that writing books is their main source of income, it mostly helps to keep existing customers buying more books. If Catalyst Game Labs wants to grow their company they need a better online presence.

What the hell, I love making lists. Someone chime in if I miss any ...
