I'd guess, and again this is just speculation so don't hold anyone to this, that you could do three PDFs... one each for vehicles and drones (likely the largest!), one for guns, and one for programs. Heck, one for magic too, really, so that you could construct your own spells. Eventually, they'd all come together in a printed book, akin to SR4's drones and guns and whatnot book whose name escapes me despite being on my shelf. D'oh.

Of course, if I was a tenth as productive as my *brain* was, you'd be complaining about the monthly PDF drops already. :)
Completely understand...but, would sign up for that pretty quick ;)

The thinking is that most Shadowrunners don't have the facilities or teh resources to produce severalprototypes, then an eventual production run, of a brand new from nothing Thing, be it a gun, a drone, or, especially, a vehicle.

Whether the characters have the resources or facilities to do it themselves IC or not is irrelevant. The purpose of such rules is to create new things either from the GM's or players' imaginations or inspired by various sources for use in the game, but the creation itself is separate.

Does anybody know if a second printing of the books are coming? I really want a physical copy of run & gun and the rest but with the amount of errata they need im thinking of just holding up for 2nd printing or a 6th/25th anniversary edition a this point.

Well I hate to disagree with some of you and I doubly hate to Agree with All4BigGuns "lol just kidding Guns" I've had more than one Rigger start the game with an A in resources "of course in 1-3 that was a 1000000 NY" and build themselves a work shop to build Drones.  Also someone talked about prototyping and building characters are not building production models it does not need to be prototyped twice than built the Riggers going build their toy than modify it until it does what they want.  We need at least drone building rules because most drones used by shadowrunners are going be built by the Rigger that uses them.  Also don't forget rules for Frames run and gun just almost touch on them.

It's been a while, but was able to ping Jason about current projects and upcoming releases:

Quote
Hard Targets: A Deep Shadows book focused on wetwork, with some fun assassination-themed gear and a lot of information on Havana.

Sprawl Sites: Corporate Hideouts: 8 maps and a plot hook booklet focused on corporate-themed locations to drop into any sprawl.

Rigger 5: Just what it sounds like! And years before the end of Fifth Edition

Market Panic: The Fifth Edition corporate book. Updates on the Big Ten, some AAs, and the general chaos the corps are going through.

On the e-book side, the latest book in the Sioux Nation series, focusing on the city of Butte, will hit layout later today. Then we have a Sioux Nation adventure called Counting Coup, and a non-Sioux book detailing the city of San Francisco.

Now that the con season is done, will be looking to try and get to a more regular cadence with these updates.

Alrighty, so anyone who had bet on dates in the Rigger Pool in the 2-5 year window before 6th, your still in the running.

Those of us with under 2 year, I was down for 2 weeks personally - well better luck next edition. ;)


And Market Panic should be nice, be interesting to see what new juicy gossip has surfaced.

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)?

I'm really looking forward to Market Panic, oddly.  We've been playing the Boston: Lockdown campaign mostly as written, and at the end there is so incredibly much unresolved (for one: how the characters are ever to get out of the city, but assuming the group survives with brains intact and finds a solution to getting out, the next question is obviously "So what impact does all this horror have on the world?  Do corporate heads roll?

I'm going to be doing a little verbal soft-shoe routine of "things take time, corps do a lot of stuff behind the scenes, eventually it will be obvious .... " and the sooner that is ended (without me making up my own answers that are wildly different from whatever will be official), the more relieved I'll be. 

Yah, more fool me for actually running an official story-line, but now that they reeled me in ...

Looks like a good line up. Market Panic is going to be great and Rigger 5 is more than welcome. as I'm originally from Montana, I am really excited to see what you did to the armpit of the old USA, Butte, America (we disowned her a long time ago ;D) and the Lady of the Rockies and the Berkley Pit.

You have no idea how much I'm looking forwardto Rigger 5.

Market Panic should also be great, and then the other stuff's on top of that.

Woo!

I'm starting to want a 5th ed. bestiary of some kind. I like having as many critters as possible in one big zoology type book to keep from having to flip through all the scenarios and lists in other books.

In the meanwhile, there's always Running Wild for 4E.
