The 4th Corporate War’s over and the big dogs have retreated to their corners to lick their wounds. That leaves everyone else to fend for themselves in a shattered world.

And that’s just fine. ‘cause you’ve got interface plugs in your wrists, metal in your limbs, and chips in your skull. You’re wired in, loaded with chrome, and ready to take it to the Edge.

There’s a world full of opportunities out there. Maybe this time you can do more than save yourself. Maybe.

The Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit is the perfect introduction to the newest edition of the classic Cyberpunk tabletop roleplaying game and includes:

  • Two booklets, one containing world lore and adventures and the other the essential rules needed to play.
  • Six pregenerated characters.
  • Maps and standees to help bring the world of Cyberpunk to life!

Is this an actual playable game or is this like so many "preview editions" that consist of nothing more than a few basic rules and ads for the complete edition? $15 seems awfully high for a "preview", especially since we don't know when the actual full version is going to be released.

Lovely product, clearly you are doing something right since the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit .pdfs have shot to #1 on DriveThru since Gen Con Aug. 1st, with only a brief demotion to #2 when our good friend Shadowrun Sixth Edition came out. And yet that's a full core book. Gamers clearly want straight-up cyberpunk stories like the original CP2020. I am adjusting to the ins and outs of the post-nuke 2043 Night City setting. Strange to not have an efficient, world-spanning 'Net or a fractured United States. The Netrunner role should be more streamlined to resolve actions, though, so that's an improvement.

I have a question regarding full version.
Will it also take place in the years ~2045 or maybe already in the times of Cyberpunk 2077?

I think, in a full core book, the ideal would be to detail a timeline that inclusively stretches from 2020 up to 2077. There is nothing in the mechanics themselves that preclude this, I think, although there is a degree of irony that not an awful lot technological change occurs leading to the 2077 date (as per the computer game).

There's just one question - When will the full system be out? Will it be released at the same time as Cyberpunk 2077?

Pre ordering two of these Box set next week.
Will you be doing a Bits & Mortar with the boxset?
Or is this something you' would consider?
Be great to have it in physical form anyway.
Looking forward to it.

Is this the physical edition or does one not exist yet? I'm fine with it not being a physical version, but I just prefer actual books over files. If there isn't one, when will the physical version be released?

I can't find anything about a cover system in the rule book, while it is mentioned a couple of times. Are there rules for a cover system, or will we have to wait for the 'real' books for those rules?

(also: is there a forum/site for players to discuss the system? I've not been succesful in finding one)

There are no specific rules for cover, though we'd suggest considering shooting someone who is in partial cover akin to a head shot. Shooting through cover, assign the cover an SP. The cover effectively adds armor to the person hiding behind it.

Waiting for a physical edition, but this looks incredibly promising. May even wait for the core rule book in physical form. That said, I have a few suggestions:

Edition:

· Please keep rule book and world book separate, just like in the jumpstart kit. We all love huge RPG books, but they’re just not practical to use.
· Stop the wafer thin / wavy / glossy magazine page nonsense of the Witcher rule book, get 100 gsm and up like in the golden days.
· The layout design of the jumpstart kit is great, because it’s readable. Please keep it like that.

Rules:

· Please keep it simple, make it simpler. It’s the only way I can make the game and especially combat more narrative focused instead of rule/roll focused. The Jumpstart kit seems to be a great start.
· In that vein, don’t make us roll a shitload of dice. This is not Shadowrun, and I’m so thankful for that.
· I’ve seen some criticism of the damage values that some simple...See more

Question: Can one start a review, then add to it as time progresses? For instance, the first thing I looked at from the material were the maps. I was Suitably impressed with the maps and look forward to using them in my next cyberpunk based game in the near future. If R.Talsorian were to concentrate upon creating maps for use with their Cyberpunk games, I think they'd have a nice supporting product that would be useful not only for their Cyberpunk Red, but any other of the Cyberpunk 2020 games. All I could say when I saw this was "Hot Dang!" (got to keep this family friendly folks!). For the record? I use GURPS as my go to game system. I tend to steal ideas from other game systems for use with my games. But perhaps I might give this version of Cyberpunk a try...

As far as we're aware, you can't. You might want to write your review in a word processor as you go, the upload it all at once?

Thanks for the kind words regarding the maps! The four that came with the kit were made by me. I am at the ready to make more maps, and happily await the call from RTG! I do plan on making more dystopian futuristic maps on my own as well so keep an eye out. -Matt Francella

Hi Matt,
Sorry I haven't gotten back to you sooner on your comment. If you do make maps on your own for sale here, I hope there is some way for you to contact me and say "Hey Hal, put your money where your mouth is." One thing I'd like to see are more of the maps from NIGHT CITY made in the style you used for your maps. When you get the chance, go to Fantasy Grounds, look under GURPS in the Forums area, and then look for my cyberpunk campaign that I placed there for people to see and comment. I could have used a map for the sections under the Gibson Bridges (where I had the homeless camps set up). I could have used the AFTERLIFE maps for my campaign (and still can!). I would LOVE to see more apartment maps, perhaps a warehouse with two levels, etc. But most of all? I'd like for there to be some maps where we have STREETS. Not too long ago, I made a stab at making maps with PROFANTASY's Campaign Cartographer 3 - with intent to do the entire map from Cyberpunk 2013. The biggest issue...See more

Yeah - the action man photos were an embarrassment. Never could put that book on the gaming table.

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.
