The Rigger book won't be out until the end of 2015 or even into 2016.

Where's this coming from?

I think it's just hyperbole.  There's no way that anyone would know the release date for the next Rigger book, let along a year or two in advance.

Jason Hardy talked briefly about it on last week's episode of the Arcology Podcast.

Well, that interesting...will need to catch up on my listening. Do we know if the Rigger book and Data Trails are going to be separate books? My assumption is yes, but don't recall seeing anything re a dedicated Rigger book.

There were notes in the past about splitting Arsenal into R&G and RiggerV, weren't there?
How am I not part of the forum?? O_O I am both active and angry!

Must have missed those...admit that I do like the concept. Fair to guess that next core rule books would be Data Trails and "Augmentation", after Run Faster? If so, 12+ months for RiggerV seems about right.

That was part of the reply when he was asked "when do we get a rigger book"...  the answer was "You know, right before the edition ends."

The episode in question is 44, and the question comes at about 35:30 mark in the show.  Sounds like the "late 2015 or early 2016" is just an estimate at this time.  Who knows, it might be sooner.

Well at least he went on to say Rigger book would come out a few years before 6th to allow Rigger Goodness.  Let's hope :)

May I make a suggestion?

Since Data Trails might not be coming out sooner than you want it to be, why not make your own rules for deckers (I.e make our own corebook for deckers)? Not only you are going to be satisfied but also you can iron out some of the issues you found in the matrix section of 5th ed.

Plus you have plenty of help to get and a large audience to look for feedback.

I created some rules for Technomancers in 5th edition that are based VERY heavily off the rules in Unwired for 4th edition.  Not sure if that's helpful to you, Mevarion, but they're in the GM Toolbox, I believe.

Thanks Omae, you really helped out some of those who want to be technomancers in 5th ed.

Now, do you know a homebrew sourcebook that applies to deckers and the matrix for 5th ed? If so what is it? Where can we find it?

Part of this reason is that the chummer wants a sourcebook that can help players make a more refined decker character for 5th ed.
