The year is 2095. The world has been ravaged by global warming, subjected to the horrors of nuclear war and natural disaster. In East Asia, the Bear and the Dragon battle for control of the resource-rich continent, and an emergent A.I. known only as Charon has destabilized the whole of Europe, sparking revolution and chaos not seen since the Second World War.

On the North American continent, the North American Coalition has retaken the majority of the United States, waging the Reclamation War and reforming the nation in its image. Only Texas and the walled city of Chicago stand independent of its control. Now, the masses struggle to adapt to draconian laws and avoid the indoctrination centers that have sprung up in every major city.

On a brighter note, perhaps, science has hacked the genome, unlocking the secrets of DNA to facilitate the creation of new breeds of human: genetic hybrids, "human 2.0," and even simulacrum — a slave race grown in amniotic vats and sold on the open market. Cybernetic technology has reached the point where those with the money, and the will to do so, can become living machines. Computer science has grown by leaps and bounds as well. 

Dubbed "Interface Zero" by those who created it, the Tendril Access Processor, or TAP, downloads the Global DataNet and Hyper Reality directly into the minds of billions of users across the solar system, bringing the world an unparalleled level of interconnectivity, and danger. Malware plagues the Deep, however, and hackers manipulate the Tendril Access Processor to upload malicious virii, steal secrets, and even take over the identities of the unwary. 

This is the world in 2095, omae. Let’s hope you survive it.

In this book you’ll find the following:

  • Origins and Campaign Themes
  • Races for Interface Zero 3.0
  • Edges and Hindrances
  • Our revised system for hacking
  • Weapons and equipment, along with rules to create your own!
  • Creation rules for Biotech, Cybertech, Chemtech, Genetech and Nanotech
  • New setting rules
  • A detailed look at the world in 2095 along with an extensive timeline with commentary on life in 2095
  • ...and much more!

This PDF will be layered for easy printing, and it will be indexed and fully bookmarked for ease of navigation.

Hi, sir. I'll see about creating a discount for the Hard Covers. Keep in mind that the cost to print the premium book is just over $55.00, so even at 5.00 off, it's still going to be a bit pricey.

Preview on MacOS Monterey
Acrobat Reader on Windows 10 (32 bit version crashed after an hour with an out of memory exception, 64 bit seems to work fine)
GoodReader on iOS [15.4.1, iPad Pro 9.7]

PDF is extremely slow in (pages load slow and scrolling freezes sometimes):

Hello, I’m Brazilian and I’d like to correct two nomes that appear on the Central and South America that it’s like to appear in Portuguese. Ligo dos Apostolos would be Liga dos Apóstolos (Pages 223 and 227, here appears as Ligos de Apostoles). In page 227 Rio de Janeiro is known as princesa blaca, the correct term is “princesa branca”

Maybe a version without all the heavy graphics? It's quite unusable when pages take forever to render. No other game PDF I have has this issue, and many are even graphics heavy, so whatever process you're using is super inefficient. Maybe the page headers/footers, I don't know.

While I think that lowering the bonus to Strain from the Cyber Tolerance Edge made sense initially, why lower it from four to three? Actually, I think through the iterations of IZ 2.0 and 3.0, the Edge went from granting 4 Strain, to 6, then back to 4, then 3.

Personally, I liked when it was 4. It reflected the original Science-Fiction Companion, and until someone had Vigor of d10+, it was equivalent to two ranks of Vigor of additional Strain. The older version from 2.0 that simply let you consider you Vigor higher for determining Strain was not too bad, but only gave two points for most people, and only one point for those that got Vigor, or effective Vigor over d12. That definitely felt too weak.

With that said, there is a way to split the difference. Have the Edge grant 2 Strain flat, but it can be taken multiple times; once at Novice, twice at Veteran, and three times at Legendary. And yes, it can thus stack with itself.

Otherwise, I feel that keeping at +4 Strain, but...See more

Hiya,

Thanks for your feedback. One of the developers and I ran the numbers, and we felt that 4 and higher Strain is too much for a single Edge, but instead of dropping it to 2, 3 was a better trade off. I can see the benefits of maybe dropping it to +2 Strain and allowing characters to take the Edge twice, though.

So I just downloaded the latest version of the PDF (released today 2022-01-21). It still has the issue of missing the Electronics skills specializations.

for example page 125:
Repairing a Hacking Rig: To repair a Hacking Rig, the character must have Electronics (Computers)
Repairing a TAP: To repair a Tendril Access Processor the character must have Electronics (Tendril Access Processors)

However the Skill Specializations on page 146 leave out the Electronics skill entirely

Hiya,

I think you're good just reading the setting rules to start, and the Edges and Hindrances. Chargen pretty much takes care of itself, and, while cybernetics/augmentations have their own rules, we have plenty of augments characters can get "off the rack"

I hope you have fun!

Hey, I was looking at the character sheet and see it has 3 slots for fatigue but savage worlds has it so on the 3rd you are knocked out so I am confused why it's there, is there a setting rule that it takes 4 to knock you out?

David J December 24, 2021 12:13 am UTC

Hiya. It's not an explicit rule (though it probably should be), but Strain can cause lethal Fatigue levels if you exceed your total. We felt that 3 levels wasn't enough and added 1 more.

I know that it's too late to fix what I'm about to complain about, but I feel that it's worth mentioning because I sincerely enjoy your product and thought you've don't a fantastic job overall, and look forward to whatever you work on next.

But, I am doing a side by side comparison of an earlier version of this document to the latest version. And I have to say, I think that the layout in this latest version is objectively inferior to the previous version. In fact, for a while I was convinced that I downloaded the wrong document.

Regarding the documents in question, I wish that I had something like a version number or ID with which to succinctly identify the versions that I'm comparing. All I can say is that in the older version I'm comparing against the lady on the cover doesn't have an AR visor, the top of each page has a panel with blue text denoting the book's chapters, and the background has a cool blue hex pattern to match. In the newer version the lady has blue AR visor, the top...See more

Hi thank you for your feedback!

I assume you are reading from the pdf?

In the Introduction and origins section, there are quotes and places where I put some text into italics and changed the formatting slightly from a regular version of the font to a "light" version. I can modify that to make it easier to read.

As for the Header changes, I was getting some flack about spacing being too big, so I'm not sure what to do about that.
Customer avatar
Py R November 20, 2021 6:06 pm UTC
PURCHASER
Yeah, I'm reading from the pdf. And yeah, you definitely made the font lighter. In my (very unprofessional) opinion you really didn't have to. If all you did was make it italics but without changing the font and/or size then I think I'd be okay. Or at the very least I don't think I would struggle to read it. Actually I think I would have rather you just make ALL of the text the same size, even if it increases you page count. At least then things would be consistent.

Regarding the headers, I'm not a professional editor or anything. But I read a lot of text books (for school, work, and gaming) and I personally think that the extra spacing between sections help. Or at the very least some sort of border. But my biggest issue was with the way the headers were styled: The smallest heading is roughly the same size as the main text, and centered at the top of each segment. I'm not sure why it needs to be centered nor so small; when the other headers are left-justified and distinctive. Compare this to (for...See more

Cage Breaker doesn't seem to line up with the hacking rules in v3.0. I don't see any restrictions to only being able to access networks inside of buildings except in the Remote Hacking plugin, which seems like it would overwrite the remote benefits of Cage Breaker. Would it be possible to get some clarity with regards to the war driving portion of that edge? (the general penalty reduction makes sense, of course).
Customer avatar
David J October 01, 2021 7:09 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Hi, I'm looking it over now. Cagebreaker seems to be a holdover from a previous iteration of the rules. The Remote Hacking plugin doesn't deal with ranges or anything, which, as it currently stands, makes that Edge useless. I'll either remove the edge entirely, or give it some other useful benefit.

Just an FYI, There will be a pretty massive update to the book coming out next week, so thanks very much for this catch. It came at the perfect time!

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.
