    Dragonbones
    by Stephen Dedman

    A DEADLY QUEST FOR RICHES…
    A seemingly-harmless photo seen by the wrong person sets off a dangerous treasure hunt for a fortune contained in the opalized fossil skeleton of a dragon in the Australian Outback.

    On one side, the corporate operators of a ruthless mining company, who’s greedy owner wants the potential billions of nuyen such a find would bring on the black market. On the other side, a loose alliance of shadowrunners, Awakened magic-users, and local tribespeople for whom the site of the fossil, nicknamed the Old Timer, is sacred land, and who will defend it by any means necessary.

    But when the megacorp ups the stakes by releasing a debilitating nanovirus among the scattered communities around the site, the shadowrunners do what they do best—execute a daring run both in the Matrix and real-time at the mining corp’s headquarters in search of something—anything—to get the corp to stand down. But will they succeed before the corp operators find the Old Timer and steal it away?

    Best Laid Plans
    by Anton Strout

    TWO AGAINST THE WORLD…
    Two-gun hacker William “Billy” Bonney and laconic street samurai Cheveyo are holed up after what should have been a straightforward job testing security for one of the megacorporations in the Sixth World. But when a megacorp is involved, nothing is ever easy, and when law enforcement comes looking for the pair of shadowrunners, Billy knows someone’s either ratted them out or double-crossed them—and he intends to find out who tried to make them dead.

    Their search takes them to the mean streets of Manhattan, where they have to infiltrate one of the largest symbols—literally—of the Sixth World, to find the truth. But the truth behind what has led them to this place is far worse than anything they could think of…and unless they come up with a new plan fast, they might not be leaving alive…

    Corporate Business
    by Dylan Birtolo

    A CORP’S SHADOWS ARE EVEN LONGER…
    A “cleaner” for the megacorporation Ares Macrotechnology, Maria Payne is a model employee—efficient, attentive to detail, and very deadly. She navigates every danger that comes at her, whether it’s on a mission in the field, or walking the political tightropes in her own corp.

    But when Internal Affairs takes an interest in her, Maria begins to suspect something is going on. Her suspicions are confirmed when what should be a simple convoy heist nearly goes lethally awry. And when Maria’s investigations find an innocent man marked for death, she suddenly must decide between the corp that has given her everything and the fate of one man…and if she makes the wrong choice, she could be targeted for termination by her own employers…

    Scorpion's Bane
    by Mel Odom

    STRIKE FROM THE SHADOWS…
    On the trail of her missing brother, shaman Rashida bint Tariq bin Feroze al-Nazari travels to South Africa to interrogate a corp executive who may have actually seen Qasim. But the meeting turns into a trap she barely escapes, and Rashida realizes she and her shadowrunning team have stumbled onto something much deeper than a rash of missing children.

    Their search for answers will take them from the glittering neon towers of Dubai to the harsh desert wilderness of the Arabian Caliphate. Rashida and her team scour every clue they find, whether it is in the deep African jungle, the artificial world of the Matrix, or the infinite astral plane, to uncover who’s masterminding this plot…and stop them before it can be put into action.

    And all the while, Rashida must contend with Scorpion, the insect spirit who came to her when she cried out for revenge against those who had killed her father and stolen her brother, and now lives within her in an uneasy alliance. Vicious, cunning, and deadly, Scorpion’s power always comes with a price…and if Rashida isn’t careful, she may end up paying it before she has the chance to save her brother…and punish the ones who took him.

    Heavy Cargo

    Moving Targets
    In the Sixth World, data can be sent around the world at the speed of thought. At least if you believe in the security and discretion of the corporate matrix. If you don't do this or want to send a particularly sensitive data load, you can use couriers with special brain implants, magically secured data safes or well-hidden memories - and hire a few shadow runners to escort you.

    Heavy Cargo is an in-house production by Pegasus Press and an anthology for Shadowrun 6 with three individual adventures that were developed to match the source volume Schattendossier 4, which was published at the same time, and the Datapulses Riggerszene ADL , Hessen-Nassau and Norddeutscher Bund contained therein. All adventures are fully playable without the Datapulse, including floorplans and blueprints.

    In Heavy Cargo, the runners accompany mysterious cargoes on their journey between the metroplexes of the ADL. They must fend off dangers, uncover secrets and make difficult decisions.

    Datapulse: North German Confederation

    NORTH GERMAN ASSOCIATION
    From the coast to the box

    The largest country in the ADL in terms of area is also the emptiest: cobbled together from the remnants that remained after the Black Flood and the founding of the elf state of Pomorya, the North German Zweckverband stretches from the North Sea in the west to Poland in the east, from the Scandinavian Union in the north to Thuringia, Westphalia and Hesse-Nassau in the south. But the "NDB" is more than just the country of the most important smuggler routes, more than coast and wide open country. And it is urgent time to take a closer look at all this. 

    The Datapulse: North German Confederation takes a wide view over the north of the Alliance of German States, with current information on Bremen, Lübeck, the ADL capital Hanover, Rostock, Göttingen and Braunschweig. Get to know the pitfalls of the north German road network and the border region to Pomorya, visit the Lüneburg Heath and the coasts of the North and Baltic Seas, receive current travel warnings for the steadily growing Kohlhoff anomaly zone and all the dangers that await you in the north.

    Datapulse: 10 Museums

    WAR FOR THE HEADS
    Museums are more than just buildings where looted goods are kindly kept for you. In addition to classic museums, there are museum villages, exhibitions in historical buildings and entertainment establishments crammed with the latest technology that only pretend to want to impart knowledge. There are institutions that are committed to investigating and preserving the truth with religious zeal - and the well-financed educational establishments of the corporations that want to achieve the exact opposite with subtle revisionism or overt propaganda. It's a war of minds - and every war needs mercenaries.

    The Datapuls 10 Museums takes a look at the museum landscape of the Allianz Deutscher Länder: the operators and sponsors, the exhibition and security technology - and the jobs for runners who exist in the area of ​​knowledge transfer and knowledge distortion of the museum operators. The focus of the Datapulse are 10 exemplary museums from the Berlin Computer Games Museum to a museum ship, a tank museum and a castle museum to the Deutsches Museum in Munich, one of the largest museums of the ADL. Additionally, you'll find non-game characters, museum items, and new equipment.

    Datapulse: Underground Medicine

    IS THE PATIENT WITH US OR CAN IT GO AWAY?
    No matter how tough, fast, or smart you are, you will eventually pay the price of being a runner. And none of the big healthcare providers are keen on having a high-risk customer like you in the earnings report. So grab some extra patches, give one to the healers on the team, and do some research on your options if all goes to hell. Is there a street clinic in the area of ​​the next assignment - and who runs it? A charity? A cult, a poli club, or some other soul catcher? The organ mafia? Ignorance doesn't bring happiness - it kills you.

    The Datapuls underground medicine sheds light on the health care system of the Allianz Deutscher Länder - or its non-existence. What happens to those who fall through the wide mesh of the net? Who helps you as a runner when you're not collapsing in front of your regular street doc's door? What the hell is a capsule clinic? And what role do alchemy and neo-esotericism play in medicine in the 2080s? This data pulse is packed with information and also offers four locations plus four medical practitioners, each with their own hangers for runs.
