Description Edit | History

Where the glow of neon and chrome meet the cacophony of corporate corruption, a near-future of adventure awaits. This month, Pyramid - the PDF magazine for roleplayers - sends its information insurgents to scope out cyberpunk. This issue includes:

  • Console Cowboys and Cyberspace Kung Fu," new rules for cinematic hacking that build on the foundation of GURPS Action to deliver high-octane electronic exploits. The article includes pre-built cyberdecks (with rules to design your own), a dozen programs to assist netrunners, and a full system to tie them all together. Although designed with cyberpunk in mind, these rules are also excellent to represent modern-day cinematic hacking.
  • "Down in the Mall," a way to generate random cyberpunk shopping centers with the roll of a few dice. Written by Matt Riggsby, author of GURPS Dungeon Fantasy 8: Treasure Tables, this article uses the techniques from that volume to generate quick spending spots.
  • "The Treasure of Joni Monorail," a cyberpunk adventure suitable for any near-future system or setting. A musical martyr's enigmatic message from the grave sends the heroes out of the safety of the city and into the unknown - the grittier no-man's land between metropolises where even the corporations' powers are unsure.
  • "The Voices in My Head," a collection of new GURPS Ultra-Tech chips that can provide the encouragement, motivation, and assistance needed to keep you cool amid a chaotic chrome culture.
  • "Keeping It Real," an examination of how to maintain realism while permitting toned-down versions of cinematic GURPS advantages and disadvantages. No, you can't take Danger Sense or Hard to Kill in a realistic game - but you can get close. Although written with an eye toward cyberpunk, this article is an excellent resource for groups who love realism but want to keep character-creation options as open as possible.

In addition, this Pyramid includes an "Action Cyberdeck" prop designed to aid the new netrunning rules presented in this issue, plus the usual futuristic features: Murphy's Rules with Greg Hyland; Steven Marsh's Random Thought Table; and other odds and ends. Buy this issue today, before the megacorps decide you shouldn't have it!
