Hey, are there any German speakers who read this GM book?  I'm curious if there's anything really good in it from the perspective of running games.

I haven't translated it yet, but it's mostly at Player's Guide to Backstory type of book. Mostly a way to fill in the who/where/when/why/how of your character, not any real rules or options for characters.

Hi,
native speaker here :-)

I have this Book and it is awesome. It is really helpful in fleshing out player characters, developing runs and making the sixth world a better place.
If you can, get it via Drivethru (https://www.drivethrurpg.com/product/327593/Shadowrun-Hinter-dem-Vorhang) and punch the chapters for your own use through Deepl.

I am a fan of the book.
