Play as a Cyberpunk, a rebel refusing to live life by the rules of the oppressive megacorporations that rule San Francisco in this high action tabletop roleplaying game by Robert Marriner-Dodds.

Carbon 2185 gives you the chance to play in the cyberpunk worlds you've seen in movies, television shows, and video games.

The Core Rulebook is the only thing you need to run and play hundreds of hours of games in the world of Carbon 2185.

Carbon 2185 is a brand new tabletop roleplaying game built using the D&D 5e open game license, with all the magic, magical items, and fantasy elements removed, and replaced with cybernetic augmentations, upgradable and customisable weapons, and computer hacking skills.

I don't know how or why this is possible, but DMsGuild currently lists the base price as "$32.25", which is crossed out and lists a sale price of... "$32.43", which is 18 cents more than the base price.

...What?

Thanks for pointing that out! We don't know what happened there. There must have been an error with a site wide promotion or something. The PDF should be £20, which is around $24.

Why is there no physical copy of this book yet? It’s well received. Is there a way to get permission to POD?

Don't get me wrong. I really like the game. I like what was done here, but there is something that irks me. I noticed that there is no mission statement. It might seem obvious to everyone, but it should be mentioned in the beginning just exactly what PCs are suppose to do, or accomplish, in the game world? What kind of things ("missions") can they do? How do they get jobs? How much should they get paid? How do they get XP? How does the law effect what they do? There are so many unanswered questions about what is the character's purpose in this game. If I never played a TTRPG before, and I picked up Carbon 2185, I would be hard pressed to create a character or adventure for this game.

I have seen a version of this that is called the "Augmented Version". What is the difference between this version and that version?

It's a super-duper hyperlinked version that was offered with Kickstarter. Not entirely sure if it's offered here. Have a custom interface for navigating. Pretty slick.

Then get Cyberpunk RED, which is the official from Talsorian.

You must be confused, Cyberpunk Red isn't out yet. Only the jumpstart. Talisorian is too in bed with the digital game industry to release full version before the video game.

According to Dragon Turtle Games facebook post, they are "working on (offering) a physical copy from their store soon."
I would imagine that if that doesn't happen, then they may try and offer a POD here.
And... the pdf was just publicly released last month.

I have some friends that are obsessed with 5e style rules and this may grab them an let me run future settings that I enjoy instead of fantasy ones. My main question/concern is the the 'gear-porn' for the book. Is there a lot of options to set up your character with many different load-outs and options for them? Also how does the equipment pricing work in the game? Lastly as a cyberpunk game how much cyberware do players and non player normally equip, is it the standard one or two items everyone has or is everyone normally sporting something different but relevant to their career choices?

There's mundane gear such as rope, flashlights and comm devices. For weapons, you have different type of weapons that range from melee, pistols, submachine guns, shotguns, assault rifles, combat shotguns, sniper rifles and heavy weapons such as miniguns and grenade launchers. Some of them are better versions of other weapons, but they cost more. You're not going to find as much weapon variety as Core Starfinder or C2020 with all expansion books, for example, same with armor. All the equipment can be bought with the game's currency, Wonlongs, and as long as you have the money, you can buy all the gear, weapons, armor and ammo you want.

Augmentations, this book's way of calling cyberware, are a different story. You can buy Tier 0 and Tier 1 Augs with Wonlongs, but to be able to purchase higher tiers, so more powerful augs you will need to increase your character's Influence level, which can be done by completing missions for either Corporate or Criminal, increasing that faction level's influence.

Is it supposed to be only 10 levels or is it intending to multiclass? Or maybe still to release higher levels later?
Customer avatar
Matteo S November 23, 2019 6:23 pm UTC
PURCHASER
The maximum level in the game is 10, and there's no multiclassing. Staying below level 10 keeps HP numbers low and challenges still dangerous, as you have other ways of progressing your character after you've reached level 10 (augmentations, influence).

Does this version incorporate the already published errata?
Customer avatar
Joe A November 08, 2019 7:01 pm UTC
PURCHASER
I purchased the PDF two days ago. I've just checked two items from the errata posted on the Dragon Turtle Games website: Addition of a name to Additional Designs on p1, and the addition of two drugs on p101. Both errata are present on the PDF, so I'd say its safe to assume that Errata are included on the PDF.

Yes, it’s the augmented version which incorporates the errata, and some additional cybernetic augmentations.

Format

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.
