GURPS Classic: Cyberpunk


Welcome to a world on the edge. GURPS Cyberpunk brings the gritty chrome-and-plastic streets of the cyberpunk future to the world of GURPS!

Cyberpunk is the genre of man plus machine – a dystopian fusion of the visions of George Orwell and Timothy Leary. It presents challenges far beyond that of the standard "loot the dungeon" themes – in a cyberpunk world, survival itself can be the ultimate success story!

GURPS Cyberpunk doesn't tie you down to one specific background. Instead, it provides rules to simulate any type of environment, from the gutters of New York City to the injection-molded walls of orbital habitats.

Because GURPS Cyberpunk is based on the award-winning GURPS rules, it's possible to create any character type. From gang members and fly-by-night netrunners to black market software dealers, cyborged bodyguards and bioengineered ninja – they're all here.

Included in this book are:

  • New Advantages – from Alternate Identities to Contacts.
  • New Disadvantages – including Cyber Rejection Syndrome, Dying and Zeroed.
  • New Skills – such as Cyberdeck Operation and Video Production.
  • Cyberwear – all the equipment needed to turn the man-on-the-street into a cybernetic killing machine.
  • Brain Implants – from temporary chipped skills to data plugs to a built-in computer.
  • Netrunning rules – hardware and software to penetrate the realistic computer networks of the 20th century or the artificial reality of cyberspace.
  • Campaign advice – Over 30 pages on creating a cyberpunk campaign, both world design and adventure writing.
  • And much, much more . . .

(This is a digital reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

There is an interesting article on how the secret service came in and raided Steve Jackson Games' offices because they thought this was real. Ergo the note on the cover.

Scanned image
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.
