As the title says, New Dawn, the long-awaited fourth and final adventure in the Dawn of the Artifacts series is out now (Battleshop, DriveThru)! Here's the low-down:

THE FINAL PIECE

One more artifact. One more chance for a big payday. One more run to distant lands and high seas, racing against time and the wealthy, ruthless powers who want the artifact for themselves. At the end of this, if you succeed, four powerful artifacts will be gathered together, and they will be poised to shake the world.

To finish the quest for the artifacts, runners will have to travel to Hong Kong, track down the mobile city of Karavan, penetrate the corp enclave of Neo-Tokyo, and survive an assault on the high seas. The final adventure in the Dawn of the Artifacts series, New Dawn brings the story of the gathering of the artifacts to a rollicking conclusion while setting the stage for the changes the Sixth World will experience once the true power of these artifacts is tapped and unleashed.

Sorry, but the adventures were unable to make my budget.  :'(

So I honestly have no ideas what artifacts are coming.  Also, I think the "Twist Ending" of this book got ruined by Street Legends, didn't it?

@Jason - my thanks to the guy(s) doing the PDF layout as all the art is easily extract-able (Street Legends was good as well).  For a number of the recent releases, all the art was "broken up" which meant a lot more work and fiddling if one wanted to pull the art out.

Much appreciated!

Images like that are a double-edged sword in a lot of different ways.  Great for print-outs or PDF-E-Mails like I send out (News reports and such to my group).  Not so good when others use the art in a public manner.

But, then again, webpages have gone away fairly well, so the major issue with that is gone as well...  And, well, it's not like people didn't have ways before when DTF was the ONLY format.

No, it didn't. The twist refers to a more player-level thing, not to global events.

Yeah, tell that to Bull.  See how far that gets you.

I'm guessing your torso will get about fifty feet, he prefers a Panther Assault Cannon.
