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.

Is this the final version of the players guide? I saw some things posted about a revised version coming out wanted to make sure it is the correct version before digging too deeply into it

No problem. No there are no changes to how cybernetics are installed. It's been a huge revision, though.

Love the product and can't wait to try it out. I noticed that there were no ex soldiers or Ronin origins in this version (unless I just missed them). Have they not been added to this pdf version or were they removed? Thanks.

We put a soldier origin in the revised version (which should be coming soon), but no ronin.

I'm not sure there's a need for a Ronin Origin (all characters in the Cyberpunks campaign theme are considered Ronin), plus, I don't have any space left in that section. Sorry.

Actually, I thought about it, and I'll go ahead and create the Ronin Origin.

Wow that’s great news! To me the Ronin Origin fits that Street Samurai or Solo type characters from Shadowrun and Cyberpunk. Thanks for taking the time and giving the Ronin another look. I’m building a game as we speak to get my cyberpunk fix and this game is just what I need and the Ronin is my type of guy.

As a burned out SR6 player, I must say I really enjoy your setting / game, my whole group does actually. At first we thought we were going to play SR but with IZ 3.0 rules, but decided to switch completly after reading the settings entry. Are you aiming at October for the final version? I've read a post your did on Reddit about the upcoming changes to Hacking and can't wait to read it up. Is the document "Hacking rewrite" acutally up to date?

Hi sir,

Thank you for your kind words. I'm actually re-doing the layout for the Player's Guide as we speak. There were so many revisions (I'm writing a change log as well) that it necessitated a completely new file. I didn't want to risk more errors by simply cutting and pasting in. I hope to have the final version ready very soon, and sent to POD for me proof copy.

The Hacking re-write document is not up to date.

First of all, loved the book. I have been craving for a cyberpunk RPG that brings as to a future in relation to today as opposed to in relation to the 80s.. You nailed it! :)
If I can be picky with the feedback? I have a little thing that bugged me.
You said that the earthquake on the San Andreas fault was 12.3 on an unspecified scale... If you mean the Richter (or the ones derived from it)... a 12.3 earthquake is actually impossible (or very very very unlikely if we want to be scientific haha).. :D I know it's a work of fiction and nothing there is actually real and I get the idea that you wanted it to be "the greatest earthquake ever" but the San Andreas fault is not big enough to support an earthquake of that magnitude. In fact, there are no known faults in the world that would be able to. I loved how most things just flowed as "that's plausible" but for some reason that one fact is what broke my suspension of disbelief. Hahaha

Again, loved the book and preparing...See more

The Character sheet needs a slight revamp due to changes to elements of the game, notably Hacking. I'll try to make sure it's an editable PDF.

Hello! I've got some questions about this.

First off, I'm new to both IZ and Savage Worlds. I picked up both for the current cyberpunk campaign I'm running (custom setting, IZ rules).

I've got some questions.

1. The Bio Horror "Scared-Y-Cat" has an ability called Special: Special Attack. Was this missed in editing or is 'Special Attack' Referencing something in the Core book?
2. What core book is this system ment for? I've picked up SWADE, since it seemed like the most streamlined / well edited one.. It has worked so far, but I am worried since there are so many editions of SW.
3. The Cop Extra has an edge called "Sector Cop", but I swear can't find this anywhere in the book?

Otherwise I really enjoy this product! :)

David J July 21, 2020 1:24 pm UTC

Hiya, sorry for the late response.

This product is designed for SWADE.

The other issues you mentioned are mistakes and are being cleaned up in the errata.

Just curious when the final version of the book will be ready. You've been working on errata for 8 months (that's a whole book, not correcting errata) and still no GM's guide when we were told it was hopeful by the end of 2019. Gotta say, I'm disappointed in how things are going.
Customer avatar
David J July 13, 2020 8:55 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Respectfully, these two books combined are going to be at least 500 pages of content. I've had numerous troubles with freelancers that have caused delays. I've had to rewrite material for both books. Things have been rough. That said, I plan on releasing the GM's Guide this month, and I should have the errata done for the Player's Guide in August.

I truly am sorry for the delays, and hope you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

The original cover was much better. The one with the Asian girl. Pity you decided to switch it to a Caucasian male and female instead of including some diversity.
Customer avatar
David J July 01, 2020 10:19 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
The cover isn't final, actually. I'm on the fence about it, but I'm not putting the one with the Asian girl back in. People will just say I'm exploiting women. I really can't please everyone, and my reason to use the current cover was because it had more "punk" to it; not because I wanted Caucasian people on the cover. But thanks for implying I'm a racist. *thumbs up*

The original cover was just more balanced and eye-catching. It melded well with the border art. The new image is a dude's shoulder and half his face, with his actions taking place off-screen. I know it's a wrap-around in the physical form, but that doesn't work on a PDF when this image IS the cover. Also, the current cover's color is muddled and clashes with the neon in the border.

No one is going to think you're exploiting women, lol... what is wrong with you man? You need to quit letting real world social issues interfere with your creativity. You're becoming conflicted and that's going to come out in the product... a product that is in a fictional world that doesn't need to be grounded in real life. Why is someone going to want to play a game that is just regurgitating all the bulls&%# that's going on in the real world?

It's like Mike Pondsmith once said, "Cyberpunk was a warning, not an aspiration." Quit trying to stay ahead of (and include) all the bonkers stuff that's...See more

Followed IFZ for several years until the author started politicizing the latest Kickstarter. Getting real tired of RPG authors feeling like they need to broadcast their politics on their tiny following. Keep that to your friends and family, not the people who paid for a product that is going on a year late now.

Nope, the author even apologized for that rant. The fact that he attacked his paying customers without cause. Everyone's upset about the recent event(s). The point is, it has absolutely no place in a Kickstarter for a make-believe dice game. Especially one that's a year late on delivery.

So, one night, back in 1996, my brother and I are getting ready for a Fantasy LARP we thought might be fun to join. We go to the grocery store and get some spray paint for a project related to the LARP and leave the store. We don't even get half a block away when cops stop us and ask us where we're going, why we have a can of spray paint, what we are planning to do with it, are we in a gang...It goes on and on. I have to sit there and describe every tattoo I have (most of which I got while I was in the Navy) so these people can put me and my brother into a gang database.

I logically know this XXX is fucked up, and I could just exercise my right to keep my mouth shut without an attorney present, but that'll just bring more cops, so I sit there and take it.

In 2000 my wife and I drove up to Salt Lake City from Texas to visit my family and go camping. As soon as I fucking get close to my grandmother's house, this cop who had been following me ever since I got off the freeway, pulls me...See more

Nope no need for an apology, I'm right there with you. As a white guy with long hair down to the middle of my back, an aesthetic choice, who has never done drugs I have been pulled over many times and somehow I always get asked if I mind if they search my vehicle. I used to allow this because why not you know, I got nothing to hide but it began to feel like harassment since they have no obvious reason for assuming I have drugs other than the prejudice of assuming all long hairs must do/have drugs. Then the porky pigs actually stole money from me that was in my vehicle that was there to pay bills the next day, not all of it mind you but when you come up $80 short and it was only the night before that porky pig was rooting around in my vehicle you don't have to be a rocket surgeon to figure out where it went and then who do you call for that? The good news is they didn't give me a ticket, I guess that would have been double dipping right? So the next time I get pulled over I refused the search which turned...See more

Original electronic
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.
