CompleteTrogCover (1)They can call you a trog. Sure they can. Let ’em think it’s smear. Let them show you what they don’t know. Let them ignore history, the great accomplishments orks and trolls have made in every field in the Sixth World, the homes and enclaves they’ve built out of nothing. There’s enough talent in the trog population to punch, hack, rig, charm, or enchant that smug smile right off their face. You know what you are. They’ll learn—fast, if they know what’s good for them.

The Complete Trog is the definitive guide for ork and troll characters in Shadowrun. With information on what it’s like to be an ork or troll in dozens of spots across the globe, details on working in corps as a trog (including in ork- and troll-dominated corps) and the heroes and enemies of trog culture, the book helps players add flavor and depth to their characters and the world around them. On top of that, it has gear, qualities, and life modules compatible with both Shadowrun, Fifth Edition and Shadowrun: Anarchy. Plunge into the rich culture of trogs and watch them turn that slur on its head.

I ran into Jason Hardy from Catalyst Game Labs at Origins 2017 and as always we had a great chat. One of the first things we discussed was the tarot deck – it’s beautiful. We also discussed Seattle Sprawl, Anarchy, and Cutting Aces.

 

I can’t wait to pick up Cutting Aces – I hope it’s as good as I believe it to be.

Jason and I always have fun we disicuss Court of Shadows, Anarchy and Music and Trog!

I have to admit when I first heard about Court of Shadows I was skeptical, but I think I like the idea now.

So how does a troll sleep with dermal deposits?

Loren and I chat about the house of Kurita. Plus some of the other new things they are about to unroll. He also hints what the Kurita Combat manual is about. Plus he tells us about the campaign operations manual – it’s plug n play! He also explains some of the mechanics that set the new Valiant deck builder apart from other card games.

Thanks Loren, It’s always fun talking with you.

I sat down with Loren Coleman @ Origins Game Fair and had a great discussion.  We talked about some CBT, Vikings, The Duke, Jarl, and we even started creating a new set for The Duke.  It was a great time!

I really hope he wasn’t pulling my leg when he said they were going to make a Sherlock Holmes set for The Duke.  It would be so cool to be a part of that!

I caught up with Jason Hardy at Origins 2016. Jason is the line editor for Shadowrun.  Jason brought me up to speed on his novel, a few others, all of the shadow titles, a push your luck SR dice game, and we talked about the tarot deck.  Oh did I mention Munge?  I think that’s the right spelling.

According to Jason Shadowrun has a lot happening and the world is about to be in a state of chaotic flux, which means your runners will have a lot of work.

$49.99

 

Gangers. Corp security. Mr. Johnson. Organized crime. Other shadowrunners. Running in the Sixth World does not exactly lack for obstacles, but only foolish runners worry solely about metahuman opponents. There are plenty of other ways the world can kill you, from throat-ripping martachoras to blood-sucking chupacabras, from the aggressive gamma spider to the swarming harpy. While most runners would be happy to simply avoid these threats, it’s not always possible. Critters may be used as security, they may swarm in abandoned areas runners must investigate, or they may carry valuable reagents runners need. Some of them may even hold the keys to unlocking the sort of powers runners covet.
