You've got a choice—
fight back or get out of the way!

"Once upon a time the shadows were home ground, y'know? If you belonged there, you knew what was what and you liked it that way. If you didn't belong, you got out fast—or you got hurt. Bad. Folks like me, we knew what to do, where to go, and where not to poke your nose. But all that's changed now.
"It's the fraggin' election, that's what it is. Everybody wants the Big Chair, and all that jockeying for power has brought everybody out of the woodwork. All looking for their piece of the datastore, know what I mean? And they'll do anything they can to get it. It's a fraggin' war zone in the shadows now. We've got Humanis stirring up riots among metahumans, freaks who think Dunkelzahn's the Second Coming and want to elect him at gunpoint, the Feds tracking an assassin through the streets of the Barrens... I'm telling you, it's getting crazy out here.
"Runners like me, we've got a choice—fight back or get out of the way. Because anyone in the way is expendable."

Shadows of the Underworld is a collection of five Shadowrun adventures, set against the chaos of the United Canadian and American States Presidential election of 2057. The runners get entangled with everything from political agents to fanatical cults, from a gun fight on top of New York City's most famous building to the secret world of Oakland's metahuman underground. Shadows of the Underworld is intended for gamemasters and players of all experience levels. For use with Shadowrun.
