Really no idea...the dates listed in GTM aren't reliable at all...more used for trade solicitation, I think. That being said, it would be very nice to see Run Faster under the Christmas tree this year ;D

While I don't have any sort of authority to say on this, I can say that I'd be all kinds of happy to have a copy under my tree as well. Because nothing says Christmas like a Shadowrun book full or crime and guns. :D

Hey guys,

My group at the moment is in the transition to switch to 5th Edition. I just tried to get information about the upcoming missing rulebooks regarding cyberware, riggers and deckers. Does anyone know in which order these books will be released and if they are already in the making?

 The official Shadowrun website is quite the mess, for a new customer. It's so outdated and un-useful that I'm actually amused  8)

Anyway, any kind of answer would be very appreciated.

Cheers,

Namikaze

Officially we have no word on a release schedule beyond the fact that Run Faster seems to be the next one down the chute.  We know that the Matrix book will be called Data Trails, but that's all we know about that book.  I believe the plan is to try to get Run Faster out for Christmas, but no other books have a chance to be out any earlier than January (and most likely will come out some time after even then).  Also, it might be a misnomer to refer to the books that haven't been written or published yet as "missing."  Catalyst pushed a really aggressive publishing schedule and it backfired (at least a bit).  So expect new releases to take longer to come out - probably on an order of 2-3 books per year instead of 5-6.
Feel free to keep any karma you earned illicitly, it's on us.

Something new from the Shadowrun Tumblr:
Quote
  • The Matrix has become the home of a number of different “friends.” Be careful around strangers. [Tag: 10 AIs]
  • There are a lot of strange things in the shadows. Stand up to them by being strong, faster, and stranger. [Tag: Run Faster]
  • Sometimes the shadows clear enough to see the drek you’re standing in. [Tag: Sioux Nation: Shadows in Focus]

Sioux Nation: Shadows in Focus is new, I think? Possibly a new range/series of e-publications?

Personally, I'm interested in the "10 AIs" file. Besides Run Faster, of course. Just curious, because there have been no mentions of AIs since the new Matrix protocols in 2075.

Sigh... ;) Still curious to learn more about the size and scope of the book. I guess time will tell...

Thanks for your answer Namikaze. It's very much appreciated.
I'm glad there is an attempt at improving the content quality. I was a bit worried to be honest, from what I could read about 5th Edition so far. But my players don't want to wait anymore (like playing 4th Edition was waiting...). Probably the whole christmas, I want something new, mood.
Well, thanks again.

Having seen and enjoyed the Infected section in Run Faster along with Patrick's comments on new writer Kevin Czarnecki's work in the section, we did a quick search to see what else they might be doing and am pleased to see 'Red' will be coming back in his own novel Crimson with a projected date of Feb 2015.

Quote from: Overview
Thanksgiving. 2070. Shadowrunning vampire Rick "Red" Lang used to live in a world hunting infectious insectoid spirits and twisted mages, but now he's awakened after eight years to find the world has gotten impossibly stranger. After being retrieved by agents of his long-time ally Needles, Rick embarks on a quest to piece together the events of his lost time, and find his place among the conflict that rages among ghouls and the eldritch forces that have begun to encroach from beyond our reality. He journeys through the neon-drenched ruins of a leveled Chicago and its augmented facades as he teams up with Pretty, a beautiful ghoul, and Slim, hacker extraordinaire, as they weave their way through the schemes and power plays of a dangerous new conflict that threatens to shatter the delicate balance between peace and an all-consuming chaos.

Looking forward to it.  8)
Do you believe in a greater WIRELESS, an Invisible(WiFi) All Seeing(detecting those connected- at least if within 100'), All Knowing(all online data) Presence that we can draw upon for Wisdom(downloads & updates), Strength (wifi boni) and Comfort (porn) or do you turn your back on it  (Go Offline)?
