Publisher blurp:
The goal of the set is simple: It should have everything you need to quickly and easily launch an adventure in Shadowrun’s Sixth World setting. It should be approachable, fun to use, eye-catching, and entertaining.

With those larger goals in mind, we set about planning the contents for the box. Here’s what’s going in:

•The Edge of Now: A world book introducing players to the madness, magic, and mean streets of the Sixth World, providing what they need to know to hit the streets at top speed.
•Rules of the Street: A simplified rulebook that includes the critical elements of Shadowrun — Matrix, magic, machines, and so on—in an easy-to-use fashion.
•Plots and Paydays: An adventure book with complete information on missions for the players; they can be played alone, or as a longer, inter-connected campaign.
•Character Booklets: Four pre-generated character sheets, with stats, background, favored tactics, and advancement possibilities—everything you need to pick a character and start earning some nuyen.
•Character sheets: Custom sheets for each character, with complete stats for easy reference, along with full-color character art.
•Maps: Modular maps of common areas shadowrunners may run into that can be arranged in different ways to suit a variety of missions.
•Spell and Gear Cards: Cards that list the stats spells and gear included in the game, so that players have an easy reference in front of them.
We’re looking for ways to include more, including counters that can help you track the position of your runners and their opponents as they go about their business. We’re also hoping to include customized dice instead of just standard D6s; we love seeing the Shadowrun logo come up when we roll dice.
Also, the cover illustration is being worked on by the wonderful Echo Chernik…once we’ve got in a final, just like the Fifth Edition cover, we’ll share!
We believe this set will make it easier than ever to launch into Shadowrun role-playing, and we hope it will introduce a growing audience of gamers to the joy of shooting people in the face for money.
