Who needs it?

I do!

That's right, mageboys and razorgirls, the latest Shadowrun sourcebook has hit the shelves at DriveThruRPG.com and BattleCorps. For just $18 you too can go back into the hell of Bogotá, Marienbad Council, Free Republic of Poland (HEY, Kot!!!), Somalia, Nepal and Albuquerque. Add in Mercenaries info for MET2000, Tsunami, 10,000 Daggers and Combat, Inc. and you have the mixin's for a fun time tonight.

So, what are you waiting for?

Yes, Albuquerque.

Not a war in the traditional sense, but a corp war nonetheless. They're calling it "Chess for Keeps". All about who has the hottest new tech and who's stealing it.

Yep. Been that ever since I got my Ka∙Ge bandanna back in the early '90s. ;D

Hah, nice :)

Hrmm, we should get you some pom poms, and start sending you out to advertise for stuff on other message boards :)  I could use an Official Missions Cheerleader ;)  (And Missions could use the support.  I dream of a day when the phrase "What's Missions?" is no longer uttered :))

Any info on Poland will be priceless. And all those milspec rules and goodies would come in handy. And a war-themed rulebook would rock, especially if they cover any corporate shadow wars (on a small scale, small elite squads with shadowrunner support and/or decoys).

Question:

Will there be more adventures to follow the developments in War?

Seems that the war has reached a stalemate/rest phase for both sides. but the Aztlan might attempt a new offensive.

No word on whether there will be any Adventure/Campaign books to follow. Perhaps Mr. Hardy could stop by and post some speculative ideas?

Hey Monky:

Cluster Grenades, Gecko Grenades and Monofilament Grenades. Page 157.

And for those of high ambition:

Quote from: War, p.160
Satellite WeaponsDamageAPBlastAvailabilityCost
Thor Missile30P + special–5/100m45F1,200,000¥



Thor Missile: The Thor missile is a non-nuclear strategic weapon. It is a tungsten pole twelve meters long and about half a meter in diameter, with  ns on one end and a point at the other. It strikes with the force of a one-kiloton  ssion bomb, without the ensuing radiation. When it strikes, anything within 200 meters of the strike is destroyed, blasted to powder by the energy of the blast. Anything outside of this range suffers blast damage of 30P, –5 per 100 meters from the center of the blast (so the most a character could take without turning to a thin red mist is 20P at 201 to 299 meters).

Sticky grenades? That's a good one. And they have the THOR a bit underpowered. They forgot the shockwave, heat wave, and returning shock wave. If i'm not mixing something up.
