The Good:



  • Amazing new layout.

  • The "Declassified" sidebars are hilarious as well as insightful regarding the "ground view" o the city.

  • The new City Trappings mechanic are a top-notch addition.


The Bad:



  • Not as much new "mechanical" support as some would surely like.

  • Stat blocks, both generic and specific, are spread around the book, rather than collected.

Interface Zero is a great setting and a fine addition to Savage Worlds, but Boston: Broken Cradle of Liberty is one of the best Savage products I've seen in a long time. The setting is evocotive and B: BCL adds a few handy optional rules to the Fast! Furious! Fun! system of play that makes Savage Worlds such a joy to play and run. In particular, the City Trappings are a brilliant idea and are a great example of an optional rule that adds to the flavor without slowing the game down at all - it should be (and probably will be) copied for other SW settings.


The PDF is an excellent production and better than many e-books put out by major publishing houses. The layering allows you to have a full-color electronic version while also being able to select options for a stripped down printer-friendly version, with everything in between. If you like cyberpunk, post-cyberpunk, or even just appreciate fine game writing, this is an excellent value.

I'm a cyberpunk fan from way back, and this sourcebook is classic cyberpunk. Boston: Broken Cradle of Liberty is a fun, fast read. It's filled with nice plot hooks for a Boston campaign, and has enough local flavor to avoid being a generic near-future setting. The layout's clean, the art is excellent and the concepts within are well done.
