Det första äventyret till Cyber M/77 är ute nu – Dödsmatch 2000.
Framtiden är en mörk dystopi.
Alla farhågor om naturkatastrofer, krig, sjukdom och svält besannades, och de slog med större kraft än vad någon kunnat föreställa sig.
På de nedersta nivåerna lever de allra fattigaste i trängsel och yttersta misär.
Längst upp går det klara dagar att skymta en blå himmel bortom molnen. Där lever megakorporationernas elit bekymmersfria liv i extremt välstånd.
Sedan i maj förra året har jag tillsammans med en projektgrupp skrivit ett nytt cyberpunkrollspel i klassisk svensk stil. Slå grundegenskaper med 3t6, slå mot färdigheterna med t100, bråka med gäng, bli förföljd av en ond AI, planera en stöt mot ett företag.
Hundra sidor rollspel med fantastiska illustrationer av Elizabeth Porter.
The Daughters of Verona is back in print, sort of. I have put all the cards and the rules into a booklet which is available via Lulu. The center pages can be lifted from the book, and then cut down with scissors to make the two decks of cards needed to play the game.
The game was already available as a PDF via DriveThruRPG, but this booklet edition will allow those who don’t have access to a color printer to still make a play set in color.
The paper in the booklet is surprisingly sturdy, but for durability I propose that you put the cards in standard sized card sleeves (e.g. those suitable for Magic the Gathering, any fine local game store can help you pick the right ones). Get 100 sleeves, or 50 each of two different colors if you want to separate character cards from story cards by color (not necessary for play).
At last, five months since the crowdfunding, the illustrated version of While the World Ends is completed. The full color illustrations were made by Claudia Cangini earlier this year.
With this edition I have gone over the text to make it easier to understand, and some rules have been clarified, but not changed.
From a play perspective there is no need to upgrade, but if you want the new version for the pictures you can get it here: While the World Ends Upgrade bundle.
The pictures are mostly complete. Claudia is laying the final touch on them.
And while I’ve been waiting I have done another editing run on the text, hopefully it will be even easier to get into the game now.
I have started revising the text as well while I am waiting for my slot on Claudia’s schedule later in January.
If you have something to say about the current text, or something you had problems with when you have played, now is the time to tell me. Perhaps I can address your issues now that I’m going over the text again. Send me an email or write a response to this post.
And Happy New Year, everyone. Thanks for your support.
Thanks for your support, everyone!
Things will be quiet until sometime in January, when Claudia has the time to resume the work on While the World Ends.
Once all the backers have received the updated file with the new art I’ll get started on a print version of the game.
