The  Shadowcasters Network     is a group of passionate geeks who love gaming and sharing that passion with everyone on the internet. Whether it's Tabletop RPGs, boardgames, or video games, we spend most of our time trying to figure out how we can show off the stuff we love playing, in the hopes that you'll love it too. We've got our popular  Shadorwun     content, include:  The Arcology Podcast, Neo-Anarchist Podcast Tales From the Stuffer Shack , and  GM Screen , as well as an immensely popular  Shadowrun: Anarchy     live show called  Join the Anarchy . We've got the boardgaming smash-hit  Once Upon A Tabletop. We've got shows set in self-built and home-brewed TTRPG worlds  like Optiverse and Shattered IslesAnd these are just the tip of the iceberg! Our lineup is growing and we've got more ideas that we're excited to try out!

What are we trying to do?

Our fans have been an integral part of how we are able to do business year after year. We've been able to be in business for 2 years now thanks to your generosity. Let's keep it going! We have more stuff we want to do! Let's do it together!

Shadowrun 6th Edition

This year we were extremely fortunate to have been trusted by Catalyst Game Labs, the publishers of Shadowrun, to break the official announcement of the impending sixth edition of the Shadowrun tabletop RPG. Shadowrun is at the core of our genesis as a business, and it was a high honor to be allowed to break that news. 

We do NOT plan to stop pumping out Shadowrun 6th Edition content, either. Through a live Actual Play show on our Twitch channel, we are showcasing the new rules and systems before anyone has a chance to get their hands on it. But that's not it! We are putting out:

  • Review videos
  • System analysis videos and podcasts
  • interviews with developers
  • live Q&A sessions

Every chance we can get to give you information regarding the next exciting edition of Shadowrun.

Shadowrun Missions: Online

Our online venue for playing officially sanctioned Shadowrun: Missions games has been a HUGE success in this past year! We plan on keeping that going stronger than ever. Whenever 6th Edition missions are available, we'll have them ready for you to play. 

Last year we offered a MASSIVELY successful Shadowrun: Missions Online ticket bundle that we called the "Season Pass". Well, we're bringing it back again! During the Streamathon ONLY you'll be able to buy 6 Bundled Tickets for $20! That's a HUGE 33% discount. But they will only be available during our fundraiser!

More Streaming

Streaming content has become a big part of what we do here at the Shadowcasters Network, and we have plenty more of it coming to you!

  • New TTRPG shows with exciting new casts!
  • Optiverse, the growing Mutants & Masterminds home-brew by Opti
  • And tons more!
