In May 2022 we presented the new Shadowrun Sixth World Essentials featuring the current (sixth) edition of Shadowrun from Catalyst Game Labs. Celebrating Shadowrun‘s 30th anniversary, the 2019 Sixth World edition is easier to learn and play than ever, yet still offers the depth that is key to the Shadowrun experience. Design exactly the character you want. Fast gameplay and conflict resolution keep the game moving. The rules are built around gaining advantage and taking risks, building to spectacular moments. This Essentials offer had the corebook and major combat, magic, and rigger supplements — everything you need to start exploring the Awakened World of 2080. We presented more of the Sixth World’s shadows with the sourcebooks and campaign adventures in our all-new companion, Shadowrun Power Plays.
There were three titles in this Essentials offer’s Starter Collection (retail value $66) as DRM-free .PDF ebooks, including the complete Shadowrun, Sixth World Core Rulebook City Edition – Seattle, No Future (Sixth World version), and the Neo-Anarchist Streetpedia.
(Note: We previously presented both Streetpedia and the SR Fifth Edition version of No Future in the July 2020 SR5 Lethal Streets offer. In the August 2021 Sixth World Stories offer, we presented a shorter version of the Sixth World Core Rulebook. If you purchased that offer, the updated City Edition rulebook, with an appendix describing Seattle in 2080, was added to your Wizard’s Cabinet and your linked DriveThruRPG Library.)
Those who paid more than the threshold (average) price also got this offer’s entire Bonus Collection with five more titles worth an additional $79, including the combat rulebook Firing Squad, the magic supplement Street Wyrd, the rigger book Double Clutch, Krime Katalog, and a Phone PDF with handy weapons reference cards, Gun Rack.
Ten percent of each payment (after gateway fees) went to these Shadowrun offers’ pandemic-related charity, Direct Relief. Direct Relief sends protective gear and critical care medications to health workers, with emergency deliveries to medical facilities across the US and to regional response agencies across the world.
