A blast of light punches my eyes as I walk down the ramp from street level. The dance floor is an amorphous beast, writhing with a thousand limbs, and the beat of the music red-lines my pulse into overdrive. On the stage, a nova is dancing.

Searing beams of the spotlights catch the mirror-bright metal arms, legs, and face, reflecting them back in a dazzling cascade of color and light. The next thing you see is the hair flaring golden in the glare, surrounding her face like a solar corona around a silver moon. While Maria Mercurial dances, nothing else matters.

Of course, something else does matter - biz. That's why you're here, chummier, to protect the silver lady with no past. The money's good, the job's easy; what could go wrong? Except maybe the lady's past is catching up with her.

Mercurial is a Shadowrun adventure, designed for gamesters who must already have a copy of Shadowrun. Mercurial includes all the information needed to introduce a party of shadowrunners to the "glamorous" world of megahit rock stars, dreamchip addiction, sleazy talent agents, corp hitmen, toxic waste, and Yakuza sorceresses. A world where double-dealing is an art form and nothing is quite what it seems.

This is an absolute classic shadowrun adventure. It oozes atmosphere and the scenes that are provided are actually quite good and are really on point (from a thematic perspective). At the same time this adventure can be easily reskinned or lifted into [...]

Absolutely killer, and surprisingly easy to adapt. I ended up running a "reverse" of the adventure with an Anarchy group, putting Bull and Johnny 99 as antagonists and players as agents of Kyle Morgan (It was a one-shot). There was definitely [...]

This is a terrible railroad of an adventure but I love it. The back story is deep, real deep with multiple goals and a great simple bodyguard mission as the top layer of this convoluted cake. Its worth the price just for the crazy backstabbing stories [...]

This is a classic for a reason. The plot is deceptively simple, and converting this to a more recent edition of Shadowrun or even to another system would be pretty easy. It's more than worth the price tag. [...]

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.
