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

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.
Why do things happen the way they happen? For
all I know the world Is Just one big game and all of
our actions are determined by the roll of a die.

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.

Nice work, Sphinx!

Maybe add the Seattle boxed set?  Not really a core book for fifth, but published during 5th's timeperiod.

@Sphinx - Thanks mate. This is already better than the site and drivethrurpg. The former lacks all the books the latter lacks the informative grouping you added. The short phrase descriptions without Shadowrun's paragraphs of literary fluff is great. (It is good for books, bad for product descriptions).

Also useful, if not necessarily 5th ed specific: Seattle 2072, Seattle Sourcebook, Sixth World Almanac, NAN (Native American Nations) Volumes 1 and 2, Sprawl Sites, Bug City, London Sourcebook, Germany Sourcebook, California Free State, Tir Na Nog, Tir Tairngire, the Target: series, Aztlan, New Seattle, Denver, Year of the Comet, Shadows of: series, Corporate download, Corporate Enclaves and Feral Cities. These are the setting sourcebooks, from 1st ed on. Not necessarily in any order.

Edit: definitely not a high priority for learning the system, but good for the background/setting info.

Spooky, what do you do this pass? Shoot him with my thunderstruck gauss rifle. (Rolls)  8 hits. Does that blow his head off?

Worth remarking that Dark Terrors is also the most up-to-date metaplot book.  That's really more what it is than a "spooky parts of SR" book, IMO, even though it was marketed as that.  Some chapters like the Elder Gods or the Infected chapters are intended to have horror aspects, but the chapter talking about how the cure for CFD has been found and it's basically on its way out the door (to put things optimistically) is the opposite of a horror story.  Even if NeoNET breaking apart will lead to a bunch of strife and pain.

I'm Madpath Moth on reddit (and other sites).  Feel free to PM me errata questions!
Jeeze.  It would almost sound stupid until you realize we're talking about an immortal elf clown sword fighting a dragon ghost in a mall.

Incredible job, Carmody; Thank you so much on my behalf and I'm sure many others.

I do see a couple of small omissions: you have the first Denver scenario (serrated edge) but not the second and third (false flag and ripping reality).

Thanks, fixed  :)
I do not know how I missed them.

By the way, some dates are guess only, as some books lack the Jackpoint page.
