Ultimate Archetypes: The Social Adept


Creating a Shadowrunner isn’t easy.

There’s no class to tell you what abilities you get, and there are a whole lot of options to pick from. You want a runner that isn’t going to frag up when it’s time for them to shine. You also need a character reference sheet that makes it easy to know what dice to roll, with all the numbers crunched so you can focus on playing the game instead of doing math in the middle of a tense scene.

That’s what Ultimate Archetypes is designed for.

Each Ultimate Archetype includes an optimized starting Shadowrun character, one that is very, very, good at what they do. You’ll also find tips on how to play the character, customize them, and suggestions for your first few advancement choices. A character reference sheet is included, one that has all the dice pools, damage values, and other relevant crunchy bits figured out and clearly presented for you.

Ultimate Archetypes are legal starting characters, and are also designed to be legal for Shadowrun Missions, the official living campaign run by Catalyst Demo Team agents at conventions, game stores, and online at

Introducing the Social Adept, an incredibly effective face made even more powerful by their innate magical abilities.

As a social adept, you are a master of all forms of social interactions.

You are the one who can negotiate the best deals, talk to people and find out what they know, find a fence for the loot or paydata your team picked up, and more.

You are also a master of disguise, further enhanced by the ability to change your appearance and mask your aura.

Stealth is a specialty of yours as well, useful for staying out of sight, but also for swiping or planting items.

And when the drek hits the fan, you've got the skills and powers to stay alive. You might not look like much trouble to your enemies, but you've got an ace up your sleeve.

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.
