Question: Do you need the full 2e ICRPG rulebook to run this properly, or will the Free Quickstart version be sufficient, or is it even stand-alone? I ask as I am super interested in Altered State, Vigilante City, and Blood Snow but do not want to invest in 2e as I hear rumours of a 3rd edition coming along.
KEEP IT UP RUNEHAMMER!

You can use the free QuickStart to easily get going with Altered State. The Core is not necessary. That being said, I don’t want to speak for Hank, but I think Third Edition is still a ways off. You really can’t go wrong with Second Edition, including just grabbing the PDF. But, if you’d rather wait, the QuickStart will serve you well.

Amazing! Thanks for the info. I am going to assume the same holds true for Vigilante City and Blood Snow.

Take it easy!

Rage Dice: I assume that there is no overload backlash when rolling 1's for non-psychic Rage Dice abilities or loot? Would you recommend some other consequence or can you use them with abandon?
Also, I assume players can only bank Rage Dice during action scenes and not farm them infinitely in quiet moments?

Yep. No overload backlash for loot. I’ll leave a consequence up to you and your table, but in our playtests, there was never a need to have one (because of the answer below). Correct. Players should only be banking them in moments, under pressure, while in the action, which is how you build rage and get angry, lol. If players have a quiet moment between rooms (catching their breath), I might allow one round of banking, recoveries, or healing before the action is back on.

Would it be possible to combine Altered State with ICRPG Magic/Core and make ICRPG Shadowrun?

Fantastic addition to the ICRPG lineup. Mechanically the tweaks to the CORE are thematic (haven't played much with it yet as it is still super new), well thought out, and grounded. Narratively this is a powerhouse of gaming concept and thought. AS takes many of the sort of cliché ideas of cyberpunk and gives them a bit of epic flair and punch. It gives enough of a background to get players and gm's started, but does it in such a way as to spark a good sense of creation to round out the narrative ourselves. I really look forward to playing this more.

Where can I find more info on this game?

I want a clear idea of what "beyond cyberpunk" is supposed to mean.

I'm just wondering if there is room for slick "face" type PCs, reputation/social mechanics, etc or if it's just focused on solving every problem with a gunfight.

Altered State is a supplement. It’s meant to be played with the ICRPG CORE rules. Within those rules and AS, there’s absolutely room for social encounters. How would you handle those anyway? With RP? Maybe make a roll to meet or beat a target number? You won’t find anything earth shattering there as far as basic mechanics, but ICRPG also allows effort rolls to chip away at the situation. Want to bribe a guard? Then make your roll and apply some effort to the task. More effort means the guard will start to see things your way. Or provide you with information. Or turn and look the other way.

That being said, you won’t find traditional “face” character class, but the Shifter class or Type can easily accommodate that role. Build around Charisma and RP your way into and out of danger. During our playtesting, that was a big deal for this character, who was also a master of disguise.

There is no reputation system baked in, but you can easily use your favorite mechanic....See more

I assumed that RP with Charisma rolls to guide the improv of the GM or chip away at effort would still be in play.

I was just hoping that the class and loot options in this supplement would give a Charmisa based character tons of options since some of my favorite Cyberpunk media feature protagonists calling in favors from Contacts, using their own reputation to get access to avenues otherwise barred, and generally being the bane or boon of some Corp/Faction that they aren't in charge of (which provides its own benefits and recurring headaches).

TLDR: Is there a lot of Charisma focused loot, themed for the setting?

There is a 100 item loot table, effects all over the place, and a large table of milestone loot also for multiple types, but it sounds to me you have CHA-driven play figured out, and it isn't necessarily LOOT driven in nature. It's a matter of flavor and style by players.

I've been checking every day to see if a full-size preview link was finally working (it wasn't when I wrote my initial comments). Reading the intro on the style of play and even seeing things like Bond and Link on the character sheet has convinced me that this supplement is emulating the style of Cyberpunk I usually play.

It’s a supplement, it’s designed for ICRPG but you could adapte it easily to other systems.

You can also use the ICRPG Quickstart to get all you need to run this game. Which is free.

Format
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.
