Shadowrun, Sixth World at Gen Con!

By Jason Hardy, Line Developer

Gen Con is a week away, which means we’re really close to seeing lots of people from the Shadowrun community, soaking in Shadowrun games, and indulging in a number of ways to create more Shadowrun fun!

The Catalyst Demo Team will, of course, be running a ton of games during the con, and we’ll also be demoing the new Shadowrun, Sixth World rules at the booth. You can also dive into a demo of the board game Shadowrun: Sprawl Ops!

But the fun doesn’t stop there. It’s Shadowrun’s thirtieth anniversary, so we want to spread Shadowrun joy around. We’ll have a special display case of Shadowrun goodies from across the years for your viewing pleasure, and we’ll have plenty of new products for sale at the booth. Let’s get a look at the Shadowrun items you’ll be able to pick up at the con!

Shadowrun, Sixth World Core Book

The newest edition of Shadowrun will be up for sale! Get ready to dive into Sixth World action, gain edge over the competition, and use it to pull off stunning victories and thrilling escapes. We’ve talked a lot about this edition lately in recent posts, and we’re excited for people to play it!

Shadowrun, Sixth World Beginner Box

Want a quick taste of what the new edition has in store? Try the Beginner Box! With quick-start rules, four pre-generated characters, an adventure, setting information, and reference cards for gear and spells, the box will get you right into the action. Did we mention it has poster-sized maps and some custom Shadowrun dice?

Shadowrun Dice & Edge Tokens

A good amount of six-sided dice is always important to Shadowrun, and in the new edition, tracking and spending Edge is more important than ever. This pack of dice and Edge tokens makes your game easier to play and manage—and they look cool, too!

 

Rogue’s Gallery NPC cards

Need a runner for any situation? This deck has them—more than fifty, as a matter of fact! With compact game stats, character art, and some flavor to help you get to know the character, this deck will help gamemasters introduce characters on the fly to help or hinder the players.

 

Prime Runner miniatures

We’ve long wanted to create our own Shadowrun miniatures, and they’re finally here! Featuring Sledge, the ork street samurai, Coydog, the elf shaman, Gentry, the human decker, Hardpoint, the dwarf rigger, and Blanco, the troll weapons specialist, this pack brings Shadowrun action to life.

 

Neo-Anarchist Streetpedia

Want to know about what Aztechnology is up to these days? Need some info on Asamando, Deus, or Maria Mercurial? Then check out the Neo-Anarchist Streetpedia! It covers topics from Aden to the Zurich-Orbital Habitat, written in the off-the-cuff style the neo-anarchists are known for! Get it and get caught up on the Sixth World.

 

No Future

What hot new shows are on the trideo tonight? What tunes are shadowrunners blasting into their earbuds as they rampage through corporate security? What sports teams do runners root for in their downtime? No Future has the answers. It’s your guide to the culture of Shadowrun’s Sixth World, helping runners navigate their time off while also sneaking in critical paydata that might help them on a run.

 

Sledge collectible statue

Sledge, who has appeared in Shadowrun art and fiction over the past six years, is the very model of an ork street samurai. Soon, he’ll be a model you can put in your home.

Catalyst Game Labs is thrilled to announce a new collectible statue of Sledge, produced with the help of our friends at Monster Fight Club. As you see in the pictures, Sledge is fully detailed and ready for action. He is a great addition to any Shadowrun collection and a great way to bring cyberpunk flavor into any home or office.

Sledge will go on sale to the general public later this year, but we were able to fly in a small number of statues for sale at Gen Con. How small? Twelve. Due to the limited availability, we want to make sure they go to some of the most dedicated Shadowrun fans at Gen Con.

One statue will go on sale at the designated times listed below throughout the con. To acquire the statue, you need to purchase our Shadowrun Super Fan package at a cost of $500. That includes:

  • One Shadowrun, Sixth World core rulebook
  • One Shadowrun, Sixth World Executive Edition book
  • One copy of No Future
  • One Shadowrun Dice & Edge Tokens pack
  • One set of Rogue’s Gallery minis
  • One Sledge statue

  • Thursday at 9 a.m., 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.
  • Friday at 10 a.m., noon, 2 p.m., and 4 p.m.

All this will be at Gen Con along with metal dice, t-shirts, and more! Drop by booth 1611, say hi, and see it all!
