Just curious if there are any rumors to an SR5.

Fifth edition?  That's as crazy as coming out with a new 5th Edition of D&D so soon after...  Oh, riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight...

I doubt it.  I mean, hell, we're barely into metaplot storylines and how many more PDFs CGL can pump out.  :)  SOTA'73 is pretty good.

I was hoping that a 5th Edition would return to the old Priority System for character creation, considering that the SR players I know won't touch 4e because of the PB system.

I do know that Runner's Companion had a PS system in it, but without any copies to be had (unless I wanted to spend $100 on eBay/amazon, which I don't), I was hoping that 8 years would be time for a new edition.

I'm sure that a reprint is well underway. I'm also sure that if you're nice someone on here would post up a copy of the Priority System from Runner's Companion. (Wink, Nudge, Wink)

I really hope there's not going to be another edition, SR4 has resolved alot of the frustrations I had with SR3 ie. the Matrix system.
Look past the lies, and all the scary stuff that remains is the truth.

no, the rigger book isn't out yet. A rigger book always heralds the new edition.

Or you can buy the PDF.

PDFs are nice, but I prefer hardcopy/dead tree copy.

Gotta choose your evil: Hold out hope for a new printing, Choke down the price-tag on eBay, or break down buy the PDF.

Sometimes there are no good choices, just less-bad ones and more-bad ones.

Honestly? I hope that when 5E comes (Yes, we all know that eventually they will bring out a 5th edition, just hopefully not too soon), they keep the point buy system. It is WORLDS better than the priority system. Honestly, the ease of customization is a helluvalot better than you see in the priority system.

Oh please, Priority (at least in my opinion) is exactly what a GM should avoid. Railroading players and nixing customizations.

I know, that they are at least talking and thinking about 5th ed. I know, because I was asked to contribute some thoughts and suggestions about what needs to be changed.

I have a solution for both types of character creation for a possible 5th Edition:  Have both!
