USR Cyberpunk

Watermarked PDF

2099. The rain won’t stop. It seems like night time is all there is in the city, this sprawling chrome nightmare. A cascade of neon recedes into the distance and on the streets below trench-coats waft over streaming grates, a junkie takes an octagon pill and a young woman with a switch-blade arm is denied access to the NuYok Club.

Cyberpunk isn’t just a genre, it’s an attitude. It’s all about high tech and low life, how technological wonders have become mundane and the government has handed all power to multinational corporations. Cybernetic implants are everywhere, from a thermal chip in the iris to muscle enhancers sewn into tissue. There are no heroes here, only people who want to survive. Hackers take down security systems and steal thousands of CorpDollars in an instant, street samurai are hired by firms as bodyguards; mechanics fix up spy drones and assassins prowl the darkness waiting for the kill. Players take on the roles of inhabitants in this dark world. They could be deadly Cyber Ninjas, crafty Hackers, Militant Gunners, drug-making Chemists and more. They will do whatever it takes to get money and survive in this amoral world, whether its theft, security or assassination.

USR Cyberpunk is a guide for how to run your USR game in a cyberpunk world. You will still need a copy of the free-to-download USR rules to play. Players can play any sort of character they want, kit themselves out with implants and, above all else, survive.

USR Cyberpunk includes rules for:

  • Creating your own cyberpunk character, complete with implants, weapons and gear
  • Hacking into the OverNet 
  • A flexible and easy software creation system
  • Making and executing viruses
  • Creating mind and body altering drugs

If you're looking for a rules-lite option for a cyberpunk game, then USR Cyberpunk is for you.

Note: This is a non-art version of the book.

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.
