Not really worth the purchase price. Of the fifteen pages there are twelve pages of fluff and three pages of crunch. This isn't so bad by itself, but aside from the leading short story, the fluff is mostly a rehash of ideas already presented in Street Magic, and if you're interested enough in playing an adept that you would be willing to purchase this, then you probably already have Street Magic.

While containing good information, this product was too short for $4.95. I feel like it could have used more play examples for the new rules.

Way of the Adept is all about the magical adepts who use the power of magic to improve and remake themselves but it physically or mentally. This product expands on the options for adept characters in the Shadowrun setting and provides information on how they fit into the setting.

Way of the Adept for Shadowrun written by Russell Zimmerman and published by Catalyst Game Labs. It is a 15-page PDF organized in the usual style of Shadowrun products and well illustrated.

Way of the Adept is a look at the ways that adepts, people who channel magic to improve themselves, are evolving in the Sixth World of Shadowrun. Much of the product is presented as an ‘in setting’ discussion about adepts and the paths that they follow in using their magic. This is good background and gives a feel for where and how the adept fit into the setting.

At the end there are three pages of new qualities, the focused Way of X adepts, which allow the character to specialize in particular adept abilities such as the Athlete’s Way (excellence in sports and physical skills) or the Speaker’s Way (talking and social skill mastery) and then a new set of Adept powers tied to various Ways.

It is a useful resource, especially if adepts are popular among your players, but I would have liked to have seen more about how adepts are viewed by and interact with ‘normal’ people in the Shadowrun setting.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.

A must have if you plan on playing with adepts. It's a good way to boost the power level of the relative week adepts to a functional level. I like it.

To begin with, the rules contained within this product are optional. Optional. They may not be for everyone, but again they are optional.

As a longtime Shadowrun player, and a fan of adepts I really enjoyed this product. Additional focus given to the various Ways that an adept can follow is nice, as is the mechanical discount on power point costs, available for following a Way. The new powers range from meh to very cool.

Overall a very nice addition to the game, and hopefully the start of some nice OPTIONAL rules that allow GMs and players to add more depth flexibililty to the game.

While this product offers some fun ideas - it is very short. The limited number of options and information in this pamphlet warrants a freebie to entice you towards other source material.

Interessant wenn auch etwas mager. Am Ende stehen keine wirklich neuen Inhalte zur Verfügung, die bekannten werden nur etwas vertieft. Die einzelnen Wege eines Adepten werden genauer beleuchtet sowie ein paar neue auf die einzelnen Wege limitierten Kräfte eingeführt.

Well written book that adds some nice rules for adepts.
While at the same time keeping the entertaining fiction that Shadowrun Source material is well known for.
