release schedule through to the autumn (see below!) including stuff
never heard of before.

Super Tuesday
Sure, running against the corps is hard. But there's
nothing in the worldslimier, colder and deadlier than taking a run
for some political slag.You're the pawns, toys, mice at the mercy of
a fat and nasty cat. They saynever trust a dragon - I say never trust
a politician. Super Tuesday is a collection of five
Shadowrun adventuresset during the chaotic United Canadian and
American States Election of 2057.From breaking into Bug City, to
stopping a psycho toxic shaman on a deathmission, to tangling with a
secret society on a quest for a magical talisman,the player
characters find out what it means when a politician enter theshadows.
Super Tuesday is intended for gamemasters and players ofall
experience levels. For use with Shadowrun.
