State of the Art: 2073 PDF-only product now available!

(1/4) > >>

Just in time for your last-minute holiday shopping, we've released a new PDF-only product, State of the Art: 2073 (Battleshop, DrivethruRPG). Here's the rundown:


Some people think that being state-of-the-art means being on the bleeding-edge of technology. That’s part of it, but only a small part. If you really want to be current, if you want to know what’s going on in the world and how it might affect you, you need to know about a lot more than new tech. You need to know about current events—like the speech Hestaby gave to the United Nations that put the dragons of the Sixth World into an uproar. You need to know what you’ll see on the roads, from new vehicles to re-purposed classics. You need to know about the latest research on Awakened plants and the exceedingly creative uses scientists are putting them to.

Take those elements and stir in up-to-date information on important people and places—like cagey intelligence ace Samantha Roth and the tumultuous nation of Thailand—and you have a dossier that can help runners stay current and make sure they know what’s happening now in the Sixth World. Because the runner caught up in yesterday is a runner that’s been left behind.

State of the Art: 2073 is for use with Shadowrun,Twentieth Anniversary Edition.

Xmas present for me? YAY!

Heh, the preview actually makes me more exited about the fact that Eurowar Antiques is still incoming, thought it might have been crapped, as there's been no mention since the intro page of Unfriendly Skies 8)

A nice mix of stuff.  I've been really excited by the "Street Legal" stuff since I saw an early draft of the material about a year ago.  I've been wanting to see stuff like dump trucks and the like for a while, so these "every day" vehicles are a nice touch.
