The missions in Elven Blood are only stated for 4th I fear :/ I've been planning to use them in any case or at least draw upon them.
If Tom Brady’s a Spike Baby, what does that make Brees and Rodgers?

Elven Blood is presented in full Missions format, so as far as I can tell it would be legal for Season 4 characters. This would mean you can play them before you turn your character into a prime runner for Chicago Season, though PM1 isn't out yet. I think that puts Season 4 at a total of 31 non-convention missions available? Namely 04-00~04-12, Free Taiwan, the five Elven Bloods, four Sprawl Wilds, four Firing Line and four London Falling.

Yes, Elven Blood is a compilation of CMP adventures and was only statted for SR4. From the product description:

Quote
Elven Blood is a compilation of five different Missions that have been written to premiere at summer 2012 conventions. They can, however, be played by anyone. Whether you’re playing at a con, in a game store, or in the comfort of your own home, Elven Blood has an adventure for you. Taking you from the mean streets of Seattle to the wild lands of Tír Tairngire, Elven Blood offers exciting and inventive adventures for all Shadowrun fans.

Elven Blood is for use with Shadowrun, Twentieth Anniversary Edition.

Woah... What the heck is that thing up top?

That's a slick looking cover right there.

Depends on the value you assign for "NICE," really....

Well, the player side is terrified.  The GM side is excited.  The fan of awesome artwork is equally excited.  So that's two excited votes vs. one terrified vote.  :)

Eagle Shaman, huh. Didn't see that coming.

So Aztechnology does have some part in the Lockdown.

Based on the FB comment, sounds like the book is done:

Quote
Just received the pdf version of our PnP 5th edition Boston Lockdown campaign book for cross checking. 240 fraggin’ pages of mayhem and infectious fun. Thanks @Scott Schletz, @Jason Hardy and @Matt Heerdt for this fabulous campaign book!

However, given that this was tied to the KS, not sure how/when it will be released to general public. Hopefully, this means that they can start fulfilling the KS backers soon...from the latest KS update:

Backer Rewards Update

On top of the brand new update for the game, we wanted to give you a quick update on the backer rewards. As I type, the brand new Boston Lockdown Campaign Book by writer extraordinaire Scott Schletz is on my hard drive as a pdf. This means all backers of the appropriate reward tiers will get one for launch (Yay!). That also unfortunately means actually printing and shipping the books will take at least 8 weeks if not more until we can even begin to distribute them. As postage has been getting consistently more expensive, we simply cannot afford to ship rewards piecemeal, so we need to wait until everything can be assembled in one place and into one package.

No mention about public release...would not expect general distribution until after KS rewards have been fulfilled. (IMHO)

For those who backed the KS at a level to get this as a reward, check you email...codes are going out (I've already downloaded mine ;D).
