FULL METAL CYBERPUNK!

In a not-so-distant future, the world has been ravaged by global warming, subjected to the horrors of nuclear war and natural disaster, witnessed the collapse of the mightiest nation in the history of the world, and the rise of other nations to take its place. In East Asia, the Bear and the Dragon battle for control of the resource-rich continent, and an emergent A.I. known only as Charon has destabilized the whole of Europe, sparking revolution and chaos not seen since the Second World War.

 On the North American continent, the prospect of conflict once again rears its ugly head as terrorist bombings in Atlantica, bring the nation to the brink of war with the North American Coalition. Is this the work of Charon, as well, or are other forces moving behind the scenes? Only time will tell.

 Science has hacked the genome, unlocking the secrets of DNA to facilitate the creation of new breeds of human; genetic hybrids, human 2.0, and even simulacrum— a slave race grown in amniotic vats and sold on the open market. Cybernetic technology has reached the point where those with the money and the will to do so, can become living machines. Computer science has grown by leaps and bounds as well.

 Dubbed Interface Zero by those who created it, the Tendril Access Processor—or TAP—downloads the Global DataNet and Hyper Reality directly into the minds of billions of users across the solar system, bringing the world an unparalleled level of interconnectivity, and danger. Malware plagues the Deep, and hackers manipulate the Tendril Access Processor to upload malicious virii, steal secrets, and even the identities of the unwary.

 This is the world in 2090, omae; let’s hope you survive it.

 Interface Zero 2.0 is a cyberpunk game powered by the Savage Worlds game system. Play bioroids, full-metal cyborgs, vat-grown simulacra, genetic hybrids, Human 2.0, and even androids! Hack the world around you with our revised hacking rules, or take control of a drone and lay down some fire-support for your team! Get cybered with new cybernetics using our Fast Furious and Fun rules!

 Interface Zero 2.0 is created by Peter J Wacks, David Jarvis, Hal Maclean, Matt Conklin jr. and Patrick Smith

  This E-book comes in two versions, a flattened file for viewing on your IPAD or Kindle, and a layered screen version so you can create a printer-friendly file.

So I have a few questions regarding this book:

1. What are the biggest differences between the editions? (Both in rues and setting)
2. Are the supplements from previous editions compatible?
3. How lethal is the combat?
4. Are the hacking rules fast and easy? (Compared to Shadowrun or Cyberpunk)

I have never played anything using the "Savage Worlds" rules, sorry if any of these questions are redundant.

Hi, We've expanded on the setting alot, bringing the timeline up by two years. Aside from game mechanics like psionics, all of the older supplements are compatible. Combat is lethal, but all Savage Worlds combat is lethal. For that, you'll want to familiarize yourself with the Savage Worlds game system.

We've streamlined the rules for hacking (Basically a 3-step process, now, unless you get into combat, and then it resolves using cyber combat rules), added rules for drones, and mecha combat.

I just got it (after reading through the Savage worlds rules) and I love it!

However, I have just one further question/request. Would it be possible to add a text only PDF to this pack? It tends to load really slow with all the images and backgrounds. It is ok to read the rules but looking them up fast (like during an actual play session) is a nightmare for me.

You should be able to turn off all of the layers in the PDF and see only the text.

The pdf-file seems to take its sweet time trying to load each page. I've tried this with both my friends "super-awesome-gaming" computer and with my laptop and both stutter more or less when navigating through the pages. However, this is just the thing I need as I've tried to find easy to play and rules-light system to run cyberpunk-rpg.

I have the hard cover of the book, however will not let me review on the review tab. We just recently decided to pick up a Savage Worlds game, IZ0 was where we stopped. The product is of an excellent quality, the lay out is excellent. Purchased a few of the RPGDrivethru PDF's and all have been excellent.

Is there plans to push out any other single sheet adventures, focused around the Novice range/

One more question: will the Fate (and other mechanics) version be added to this store item as additional files (the R.E.A.C.T. game here does it like this - 1 store item for 4 mechanics) or will they be separate store items to be purchased separately? (like the Day After Ragnarok)

I am a bit confused. Is this stand alone product? Second edition? or just a rules update, that still require original sourceboks to play? The world/history description in chapter 1 covers only years 2088-2090 -: it's very unclear and seem to be written only for players already familiar eith the game. What about full world history for thre new players? Do weI need to purchase 1.0 sourcebooks to understand the setting or you planning to release a world guide supplement for this edition?
Customer avatar
Michael J February 07, 2014 12:50 am UTC
PUBLISHER
Including some 60 pages of world history up to 2088 was beyond the scope of this book, which is the second edition of Interface Zero. I'll be addressing this by creating a free for download file which gives people the original world history. You do not need to purchase any of the previous sourcebooks to understand this setting.

I, too, find this book sorely lacks an introductory or "how to use this book" chapter (even if only one page). For example, what edition of Savage Worlds rules is Interface Zero based on? Do you need any additional books to play? What are the overaching themes of this game? I could not find any of this information (though I admit I have not read the whole pdf yet). I would like the downloadable history to address these issues, too.

Is there any problem using this with Savage Worlds Explorer Edition (the only one I own)?
Customer avatar
Michael J January 09, 2016 12:26 am UTC
PUBLISHER
There shouldn't be. SWD didn't have Huge changes. There are some new setting rules (Like Gritty Damage, and Skill Specializations) in SWD that aren't in the Explorer's edition, but IZ is modular in that respect; you don't have to use them if you don't want to.

Thanks for the feedback David. Though you've got a Fate version coming out, so I'll probably wait for that. It's the preferred system among my friends, and pretty much my favorite. Keen to see what you do with it.

Planning to eventually run an Android: Netrunner setting with it given how adaptable Fate is to most things. Your work would almost certainly be a big leg up on that intention.

Original electronic
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.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. 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. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
