I'm hoping that I over looked this, but the one thing that I haven't seen were quick reference cards like the ones that came with the SR4 Runner's Tool Kit. I'm a bit disappointed because those were very handy specially if you have new players (or a new GM). I purchased the Alphaware hoping that there would be a version of these cards because of the fact that I'm teaching people completely new to the game. Yes, I know I could make up my own but they wouldn't look as nice or have that nice laminate on them.

...that's mostly because you were looking in the wrong place all along.

The ACTUAL Runner's Toolkit for SR5 is the "Betaware" box that's coming out at a much later date.

Something like this?

No, he means the rule-cheat-sheets, quick overviews of the different steps in an action.

Wait, what? Where does the Mental Limit come from when Spellcasting? That's not how it works. And why are Reagents and Edge not mentioned? And the Summoning page doesn't even mention the Force as Limit, Ranged Combat doesn't mention Accuracy as Limit and it's still stuck in SR4's modDamage>modArmor instead of modDamage>=modArmor, Defense doesn't mention that you can still use Full Defense in melee and that it can stack with the other 3 defense options. I don't know enough about some of the other subjects to be able to see whether the thing is correct, but it has some big flaws in it that seem to come from misunderstandings and SR4-rules stuck in their head.

First off, which rule set area you referencing?

Second, reagents, the other defensive actions and interrupt actions I get leaving out for the sake of keeping the gameplay simplified.

EDIT: I assume you mean the QSR in the Beginner's Box since the other things you mentioned are present in the Rules of the Street?

Well, please clarify in your post before some poor schlock like me gets confused. :)

Updated version was just released on DTRPG.

Not sure of actual changes yet, but heads up. ;D

Edit: Just received an email from CGL as well:
