Chrome Flesh now available for PDF purchase and print pre-order!

The Sixth World is, of course, a horribly dystopian place, but it also is a place where people face the wondrous possibilities of making entirely new versions of themselves. Any part of the metahuman body can be replaced, and the new augmentations sourcebook Chrome Flesh (Battleshop, DriveThruRPG) is your guide to all the possibilities. With cyberware, bioware, nanotech, genetech, and a host of new chemicals, this book gives runners dozens of ways to amp up their game–and see just how much of their humanity they’re willing to fritter away. It also comes with full tables listing all Shadowrun, Fifth Edition augmentations to this point! Here’s more info:

The Edge of the Possible
Shadowrunners cannot be limited by what their bodies can—or cannot—do. They have to do more, stretch farther, surpass any limits, and accomplish the impossible. Some runners can rely on magic; for everyone else, there are augmentations. From shiny chrome that makes your body into a humanoid semi-truck to genetech that alters you at the most fundamental level to drugs and chemicals that give you a quick and dirty boost, Chrome Flesh provides dozens of new ways to alter Shadowrun characters and make them better, stronger, faster, and altogether readier to kick ass and take names on the streets.

Along with the gear and a compiled table of all cyberware, bioware, genetech, and nanotech currently available in Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, Chrome Flesh covers how runners break down and what resources can help fix them up, and where augmentation tech might go in the future. It’s paydata every shadowrunner needs if they want to overcome everything the Sixth World is going to throw at them.

Chrome Flesh is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.



Edit - OP updated to reflect release announcement June 30, 2015

Ah, the infamous Tamanous Takeaway. :D

Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?

The art looks good, now just need the PDF to drop so I can start planning the rest of my mage's augmentations.

Just get it out already so we can dig into the fluff too!
If Tom Brady’s a Spike Baby, what does that make Brees and Rodgers?

Sure looks like it; interestingly, my mind went to exoskeleton from Elysium instead of cyberzombie.

IS that a cyberzombie? Or is it a ghoul wearing an exoskeleton?

And is that doctor going to be able to make his dodge roll?
Concepts are great, but implementation sucks. Why not improve it?

Has there been any official word whether there will be more effort in the content and indexing for Chrome Flesh?

It was the most frustrating thing about Data Trails, and it would be great to fix that in the future for editing

Hence my comment ;D

That also looks like that one drone from 4th edition that you could wear.
