shadowrun.jpgTo celebrate the 20th anniversary of Shadowrun, Catalyst Games has announced the release of the 4th Edition 20th Anniversary Core Rulebook (doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue…). This beastly full color tribute includes all of the 4th edition rules, a 22-page master index (which covers the core rulebook and the core expansions for the game) and re-described rules to improve readability. Not content to simple re-release things we all already own (you do own a copy, right?), Catalyst is also releasing several other projects, including a new boxed set, the Runner’s Toolkit, which includes an adventure, a book of adventure seeds, new fiction, reference cards and a book of tables (could you pack any more stuff in there guys?).

What’s that? You have no idea what Shadowrun is??? Shadowrun is one of the oldest RPGs still in publication, blending a cyberpunk future ruled by international mega corporations and hard core fantasy elements like elves, dragons and vampires. If you’ve never experienced it before, you owe it to yourself to check it out.
