About the Post

Author Information

One of Raine's biggest hobbies has always been gaming. It all started with an Atari and spread out to Yu-Gi-Oh!, Magic: the Gathering, and Dungeons & Dragons. As an artist, Raine takes pride in painting models for games as well as making his own terrain. He's also been a writer for many years, working both in the journalism industry and writing pieces of fiction. He decided to create Initiative : Tabletop as a platform to talk about all things gaming that he simply thought were cool, and reviewing games became a part of it!

Catalyst Game Labs has just put up a post detailing the street dates for their July releases. We’ve got two big dates in the coming month: July 16th and July 30th. All of the products will be Shadowrun-related of course, but there’s nothing wrong with that! Here’s what to expect coming down the pipeline next month:

July 16th Releases:

Shadowrun: Run & Gun – $49.99

Shadowrun Run and Gun Standard Edition

Guns and ammo cost nuyen. Mastering martial arts takes time. And learning how to use explosives without blowing yourself up takes patience and a steady hand. These weapons and more are out there, waiting for you. You have the chance to use them to become deadlier, faster, more dangerous than the next guy—and more dangerous than you were yesterday. You’ll have to pay the price to get what you want, but this is the Sixth World. Don’t you always?

Run & Gun is a combat core rulebook for Shadowrun, Fifth Edition, containing more weapons, more armor, more modifications, and more game options such as martial arts and unit tactics. Break the book open and prepare to raise your game!

Shadowrun: Run & Gun Limited Edition – $79.99

Shadowrun Run and Gun Limited EditionThe Limited Edition includes bonded red leather, embossed cover, plus a double-sided poster showing off the weapons from both Run & Gun as well as Shadowrun, Fifth Edition.

July 30th Releases:

Shadowrun: Stolen Souls – $44.99

Shadowrun Stolen Souls

Not all has been right in our shadows of late. Especially in the dark shadows of my mind.

Those were among FastJack’s parting words to JackPoint when he left, the victim of a condition that divided his mind against itself. And the condition is spreading. Across the Sixth World, people’s minds are in schism, as new personalities emerge and battle the old. The world is in chaos, and there is a dramatically increased demand for extractions, to get infected people out of sensitive positions and to steal the insights of people who might know what’s gone wrong.

Stolen Souls is a Deep Shadows sourcebook for Shadowrun with plot updates and adventure hooks, as well as information, techniques, and gear to help make runners extraction aces. It also contains setting information about Manhattan, where key extractions are taking place. Players will get the chance to dig deeper into a new mystery that has torn through the Sixth World—and discover just how deep the conspiracies and cover-ups go.

If you’re looking to supplement your Shadowrun games, July will certainly be the month for you. Of course these offering should be available at Gen Con as well, so if you’re making the trip then prepare your bags for Shadowrun goodness! There’s plenty here to keep your games interesting for many sessions to come!
