Shadowrun: Adversary (Enhanced Fiction)


Listen Carefully

They say everyone’s got a devil on one shoulder and an angel on the other, giving them advice and trying to influence them. Well, in the Sixth World, the angel’s drunk in a gutter somewhere, and the devil Just. Won’t. Shut. Up. What’s worse, three-quarters of the time, that devil’s advice sounds downright reasonable and even moral compared to the drek the powers of the world regularly preach.

Jimmy Kincaid’s got a devil on his shoulder in the form of Adversary, his mentor spirit, but he’s always prided himself on his ability to put himself in danger all by himself. A simple stakeout with the goal of shaking some alimony out of a delinquent ex becomes much more complicated, and Kincaid finds himself going up against people who don’t need devils on their shoulders, because they regularly surround themselves with people worse than any demon.

Adversary is enhanced fiction for Shadowrun, Sixth World, featuring a new short story plus game rules, including a new mentor spirit and stats for Jimmy Kincaid’s custom ride.

Good short story. Spirit was a rehash, but the 'fleshing him out' was nice as an example for RP. Would've been nice to get the stats included.

Hi Scott, thanks for the comment, and I'm glad you enjoyed the story! Can you explain what you mean by not having the stats included? Adversary (the Mentor Spirit)'s rules ARE included, they're there at the tail end of the piece, statted up for SR6 so players can take him/it as a mentor. Was there something else you're looking for?

Its pretty short but I think the story is quality and it introduces a new spirit to the game. The total page count is 3 pages of story and one page for the Adversary spirit and a power packed Ford Americar re-built by Turbobunny.

Adversary isn't new to SR so much as it is new to 6E.

Didn't know, it's been a while since I looked at the other editions I have. Thanks for the clarification.

I know what you're thinking, Shadowrun fiction for less than the price of a coffee ... how can that be bad? Take it from me, if you have plans for however long it takes you to read 0.64MB of story just don't you will fail that willpower save and read till you've finished. You *might* resist the temptation to start again straight away ... maybe.

Buy it, revel in it, fail your addiction save. You know it's worth it.

Now if you'll excuse me I have to go and start the work I should have been about 1 book ago ...

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.
