Shadowrun: Book of the Lost (A Shadowrun Campaign Book)

Watermarked PDF

No Longer Hidden

The Bastard, upright. A man in clown makeup stands in a broken skyraker window over another man on the verge of a long plummet. Near the clown’s hand, a white rose. Opportunity, adventure, but also mania and frenzy. 404, upright. A woman crouches on the edge of a rooftop, holding a white rose. In the distance is the image of a woman in a red dress. Destruction, failure, collapse. Queen of coins. A woman in a red dress, lounging amidst luxury. She has material wealth but emptiness of soul. Upright, she is opulence, magnificent. Inverse is suspense, fear.

Opportunity and adventure abounds. Destruction and failure loom. Will the result be magnificence—or fear?

Book of the Lost takes the intricate art of the Sixth World Tarot and turns it into stories and campaigns for Shadowrun players. Full of plot hooks and adventure seeds, this book is a treasure trove of ideas, mysteries, and enigmas that can make memorable games. Open it and explore knowledge that had been lost but is now, here, rediscovered. And waiting for you.

Book of the Lost is for use with Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, and can easily be used with Shadowrun: Anarchy with minor NPC adjustments.

138 pages for 25$... really? Sorry, no way. SR is the only RPG that I only use the german tanslated products for. In the past I bought the english release too, just to support the game line. The english releases were full of errors, missing usable table of contents and such. While these problems have become less common, it's the unreasonable prices for PDF that keep me from supporting Catalyst anymore.

I know; Catalyst charges a lot for PDFs that have an alarming amount of errors and omissions, and now this? They are making it really hard to support the line.

Indeed an absurd price for a .pdf. It´s becoming more and more common this days regrettably.

For an adventure product that can be used to inspire tons of adventures and campaigns, it is still worth it in my opinion. Just because this is a PDF, it doesn't mean that the writers put in any less work. I can forgive the typos if the overall work is good. Give me a 10 page adventure or 1000 page adventure, doesn't matter if it's ultimately a good product.

And that is exactly the problem I have with Catalyst's SR work: I don't know anymore if it is good work. At least I would wait for reviews.

Well, it's a best seller at the moment. I might get this because it seems like it could be a good product for creating one shots. Since I have a regular dnd campaign now, this could be a useful book to do side games and return to SR for my group. I'll let you know my thoughts if I get it.

Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
