NERPS: Foundations

The second NERPS book, after ShadowLore, this one is concerned with non-player characters, groups, adventure plots and locations that should be useable in any campaign. It contains about two characters per page, of a variety of archetypes: shadowrunners, fixers, corporates, petty criminals, rockers, and plenty more—even a free spirit, a ghoul, and similar humanoid critters. […]

NERPS: Edge Runners

Several years ago, FASA released a sourcebook called Prime Runners, full of NPCs who were supposed to be the best of the best of shadowrunners. I haven’t seen Prime Runners, but apparently some players thought that the “Prime Runners” were featherweights, and decided to compile a document full of real heavy-hitters. The result is NERPS: […]

Edge Runners

Edge Runners is a kind of reply to Prime Runners, whose characters were deemed “not tough enough” by one of the editors, Erik Jameson. As a result, this book contains high-powered (some of them very high-powered) characters that were actually being used as player characters—rather than as NPCs—by the authors at the time the book […]

The Underworld Opera Surplus Catalog

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 […]

Shadowrun, Second Edition Gamemaster Screen

, or to give its full title, the Shadowrun, Second Edition Gamemaster’s Screen Archetypes And Contacts Book—but it just says “Contacts” on the cover. This is a booklet with first of all, the archetypes from Sprawl Sites and the second edition, but because a lot of these differ only in minor ways from their counterparts in third […]

Shadowrun, Second Edition

The main rulebook for second-edition Shadowrun, and as such essential for anyone who wants to gamemaster it. It includes all the rules necessary to play the game, and is a good improvement over the softcover version was also published, and became much more common after the hardcover’s print run sold out.
