The Grimoire — The Manual of Practical Thaumaturgy, 15th Edition, 2053

The original Grimoire is the advanced magic sourcebook for second-edition main rules, and much of the rest became obsolete due to changes in the magic rules made in that edition. As a result, the book was thoroughly revised with both new material and updates of older material that had been left out of the main […]

Denver: The City of Shadows

A boxed set that describes the city of Denver and its surrounding area, the Front Range Free Zone: a territory split between, and jointly governed by, six different nations. This has made the whole zone into a hotbed of politics, smuggling, corporate maneuvering and intrigue.

California Free State

Though The Neo-Anarchist’s Guide to North America had a chapter about California Free State, this sourcebook expands on the information given there, as well as updating it to 2057. If anything, it only makes the situation worse from the one described in the older book, making California a patchwork of semi-independent areas more or less under […]

Shadowrun Quick Start Rules

This book is designed, as the title already indicates, as an introduction to the Shadowrun game and its world. It appears to be targeted mainly at people who have never played a roleplaying game before, and would also serve more experienced players who don’t know Shadowrun but want to give it a go.
