Is it looks like this (And arguably worse with Echo's drek)



When it should look like this



Seriously. That poster reaks of awesomeness. My girlfriend just found it in her ancient game gear travel case.  Nothing is more awesome then that.

Can't say I agree at all regarding Echo's work...hits all the right spots for me. I do agree that the cover shown is not one of the best (IMHO).  I do like Komarck's SR5 cover and am looking forward to the future art blogs RB referred to on FB.  My biggest hope is that the books go all color with the new edition.

Pretty much. It's kind of gag-inducing.

Sorry CanRay. No more purchases of lame duck editions. :(

Did I ask about the book?  I asked about the cover.  How could it be more awesome?

I can't seem to find a picture of the cover that's larger then a couple hundred pixels.

It could be a bearded woman, Wildcard.  I've seen weirder in Shadowrun.  It's already got electric blue hair, a leaf in its hair...  Bunnyrabbit on its glove...  WAIT.

Angular chin and nose...  Firing a rifle with glee, eyes filled with a "I'm better than you" look...  It must be an elf!  That explains everything!

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.

It's a sufficiently flavour driven book to be editionless.  There's some addiction rules in there that justify the fluff, but those could be used as the basis for an advanced addiction system in any other edition too.  Things like the relative addictive strengths of different substances is a useful thing to have.

Perfectly normal in Shadowrun's glamrocker age.

Yeah, I actually bought Sim Dreams, and the addiction rules alone were worth it. No more arguments about how addicted a PC is when they are on their fifth hit of Kamikaze in as many days. Seriously, I had to have that argument before. Never again. Also, I enjoy anything that will make the setting more real. And knowing more about BTLs is never a bad thing when it's one of the most commonly used illicit "drugs" in the Sixth Age so far. I WANT to have stories where the characters are at risk of gateway drugging their way into something horrible, in which they are only running the shadows to pay off their next hit. I WANT to have stories where a run goes bad because the addict is cruising on something that has adverse affects towards the run. You know, reality. When you're dragging a hunk of street meat from out of a gang, and into the shadows he's GONNA be on something, just to "give him an edge" compared to all the stories of shadowrunners he's grown up on.
