Ms. Singh wants you to steal a data file from a downtown research facility. Easy in, easy out, right? It's all fun and games until the street hears what you're planning. They'll find their own uses for you.

A few days ago, a fixer asked you to recover a file from this facility. Who is the fixer and do you trust them?

A corporation is leaning on you to sabotage the mission. Which corporation? What leverage do they have over you?

You are keeping this job secret from your Ecuadine handler. Why?

The Downtown Dataheist is a two-hour quickstart mission for The Sprawl. This mission uses pregenerated corporations and individual mission briefs to entangle the characters, a cut-down version of character creation, an abbreviated Legwork Phase in which the players will quickly create the facility they are about to infiltrate, and a timed planning phase. Then it’s all Action.

The Downtown Dataheist is not a complete game. A copy of The Sprawl is required to play.

I must echo what Diogo F. said: this is a brilliant setup to teach an MC how to run missions in The Sprawl. I'm hacking it right now(and the author gives tips for hacking it, too) for a fantasy adventure akin to Shadowrun(but set in Eberron!) that I'm [...]

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.
