Fast Lane Hacking


It's Week 4 of the September Setting sale. This week: Cyberpunk RPGs! To help you with your next datarun, select digital titles like this one have been marked down by up to 80%. For more discounted titles, visit our September Setting Sale page.

FURIOUS HACKING IS NOW AVAILABLE! It provides another compact and fast-resolving Hacking system, is setting agnostic, and relies on a unique dynamic mechanism instead of flat penalties to raise the difficulty. Check it out here!

PLEASE NOTE: This product is an excerpt of Sprawlrunners, a cyberpunk framework with optional modules for bringing magic into a cyberpunk world. Besides Fast Lane Hacking Sprawlrunners includes another, more detailed, system for hacking cyberspace hosts, rules for cyberware, drones, magic in a cyberpunk world, and more

Hacking is a difficult task to tackle at the table. Many RPG systems with dedicated hacking rules overshoot the target, making it a cumbersome chore to give computer systems a feeling of “real” security. Often this boils down to a player needing to endure a separate “hacking minigame,” while the rest of the group goes to get refreshments.

Fast Lane Hacking supplies you with a simple, fast system for Savage Worlds to provide a more detailed experience for the group’s dedicated electronic surveillance and information specialist (aka, the hacker). It is primarily modeled for Cyberpunk or SciFi settings, but also provides alternative rules for modern settings, in which a hacker relies on an old-fashioned computer to break into high-security mainframes to steal data.

This product requires a copy of Savage Worlds Adventure Edition to use.

Where can I find the full version of Sprawlrunners? The text above says it should have released late last year (2019), but I'm not seeing any mention of it on DriveThruRPG's search.

Sprawlrunners has not been released yet. It is fully written and currently in Editing, sadly I cannot give a specific release date, sorry.

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.
