Wired Neon Cities - Minimalist Cyberpunk Roleplaying

Watermarked PDF
Suggested Price $1.00

Welcome to Glow City, where the corporations will beat you down as much as the gangs. Cyberninjas patrol the neon streets with katanas, the Iron Maidens roam the roads with chains and chop shops are filled with the poor and bored who want to alter their bodies beyond their wildest dreams. Hulking sentries guard the gleaming skyscrapers of the elite and psycho juicers drop adrenaline before holding up convenience stores.

Wired Neon Cities is a minimalist cyberpunk roleplaying game that uses the In Darkest Warrens system. Think a 1980's style future with a chiptune theme. All rules are covered in just two sides of A4, while setting details and a character sheet fit onto another page. Despite its brevity, these rules contain everything you need to play, including an enemies list, augmentations, hacking rules and more. 

Wired Neon Cities includes:

  • A simple d6 system that allows for flexibility in roleplaying
  • Setting information for Glow City
  • Six classes: Cyberninja, Hacker, Gunner, Mechanic, Face and Doc
  • A list of enemies
  • Augment your character with derm shields, voice modulators, flame throwers, arm blades and more.

For the Author: is this... Hackable in any legal way? :) I.e. can I create content for this for public use?
Great job though! Take care.

Well, for some reason, I can't review this (possibly because I bought it with credit from my own publisher account). That said, I really like what you've done here. Wired Neon Cities is simple, concise, and complete in a few pages. I will probably use it when I run my next cyberpunk campaign, as I'm pretty much through with overly complex game systems at this point in my life (Fate Core is bumping against the upper limit of complexity I'm prepared to deal with). Keep up the good work!

Under Gunner's special rules should it say 'gain an extra ranged attack'? Right now it says 'melee'

That's correct. I've just altered that in the new version. Thanks for your message

What exactly do you mean by "gain an extra attack equal to half level rounded up"? My own house rule interpretation was "gain a number of extra attack actions (melee or ranged depending on class) per day equal to half level rounded up", given that the attacks have no strength stat.
I have also been tinkering at a 1-2 page expansion for Wired Neon Cities (so far 2 new classes and a few new gangs and locations)

What benefit is granted by the Head Jack?

It was initially more flavour-based but I've now changed it to give a +1 to hacking.

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.
