Wanna run the Shadows, chummer? You’re going to need nuyen–but not much though. Not when there are deals like these to be had. Come check it out.
Thats right friends, right now you’ll find two different Humble Bundles to help you jump feet first into Shadowrun 5th Edition. And since we’re basically already living in a Cyberpunk world (though it’s much more boring than traditional Cyberpunk) you may as well spice it up with some Elves and Dragons and Magic. Seriously though, Shadowrun is one of the games that got me into Roleplaying, and while 5th Edition does have its problems, it’s one of the better iterations of the game.
This one will forever be at the top, though
The rules are accessible, and it provides you with a great framework to build your character on. It can be a little tricky at times–there are a surprising number of interlocking systems that are hard to ignore, and if you want to build a heavily Cybered up character (to the point you have cybernetic limbs and the like) you’ll find it can be a bit limiting–there’s a lot to try and squeeze into only so many points of Essence.
But. It’s still one of the most enjoyable Cyberpunk games out there. And since Cyberpunk 2077 is still not out yet, and there are two amazing deals that give you not only the core books, but a sizable chunk of supplements that show off some of the crazy Shadowrun flavor at its best, this is the perfect time to jump in the game. If you haven’t played in a while, definitely recommend checking this one (well these two) out.
