Zulkibar Which brings us to why do you need cyberoptics for Times Square and targeting? What, you think the Powers That Be are going to let the average citizen have free access to levels of armour that can prevent duly-appointed Law Enforcement officials from carrying out their sworn duty to subdue anyone who decides to threaten the peace? My understanding has always been that Humanity Cost was there to prevent overly cybernetic characters — in a character creation system where you can fit yourself out with a lot of stuff for only a few hundred Eurobucks. There is a place for each of the inhabitants, they all have a home, a workplace and a favorite leisure spot.

New technologies are con- stantly rendering occupations obsolete, and people useless. The amount of knowledge available and competition in corporate positions require citizens to specialize, becoming expertsin their own field, and ignorant of any other venues.

For most in the city, life without a life contract with a company means near poverty. For those lucky enough to have useful skills, short-term work contacts can usually be found, but for those without any useful skills, poverty and a life on the street is the only possible outcome. It could be argued that litde is real in the cities; music is. The most obvious examples of this are cybernetics, which physically invade the human body, but less obvious are the inconspicuous electronics used on a daily basis: the automatic coffee-maker, the ever-present TV screens, cameras watching everywhere, and the computers used for almost any knowledge-related task.

Some argue that this is part of the natural 2 evolution of human culture, while others state that human society has become corrupt and depraved — cities are the prime example of this. It is instead better to understand what makes acity tick, so that one can deal with itbetter, which is what this text is designed todo.

R. Talasorian's Cyberpunk 2020: Any House rules you enjoy or are really tempted to employ?

Scanned image 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. 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.



Cyberpunk can be a harsh mistress. Compared to other games, the rules might seem crueler and harder to learn. Some people need help figuring out the ropes. Talsorian Games and other companies have produced for the game.
