"An old fixer once told me that shadowrunning is about going places you're not supposed to go. That's what gives us the buzz, right? The excitement of traveling to exotic and secret places, meeting interesting people, and extracting or killing them. Believe me, chummer, sometimes shadowrunning takes you to places you really don't want to go - and that you're lucky to get out of alive."
Target: Wastelands is about hostile environments - places that are not just difficult for shadowrunners to penetrate, but dangerous to live in. This book details desert hideouts, toxic zones, polar stations, deep sea aquacologies and orbital platforms, including information on how shadowrunners can get in, get out, and survive.
