Skinjobs. Artificial humans. Dolls. Skin-jumpers. Digital ghosts. The invention of the ghost chip was a game changer for those who could afford to re-skin, promising virtual immortality.

This supplement for NEON CITY OVERDRIVE describes ghost chips and skins, integral technologies of the setting. It provides material for both players and game masters, including rules on re-skinning and 28 new trademarks. A table of adventure seeds and a new job are also included.

New rules: How characters can re-skin during a job, and the hazards of transfer sickness. New flaws unique to skins. New traumas that a re-skinned character might suffer.

Trademarks: New trademarks include six types of bioroid (organic clones), six androids (robots with human brains), eight theroids (animal bodies with human ghosts), four gene hacks (genetically modified humans) and four new roles (ghost hunter, robot repairman, skim trader and transfer technician).

The Delivery Job: In this mission the characters must steal a state-of-the-art skin and get it across town before their time runs out. Breaking into the transfer facility is hard, getting away from the motorcycle gangs, gunships and tower defenses may just be impossible.


NEON CITY OVERDRIVE is a fast-playing RPG of cyberpunk action. With a focus on story and action, character creation is fast and the rules are intuitive. Create any kind of cyberpunk character you want and throw them into the action within minutes.

Since I got NCO for free, I decided I'd buy this PDF. Will it also be coming out in POD? Because I much prefer physical books, and I plan on getting NCO when it is printed, I'd like to get a physical copy of Skinjobs as well.

Yes, I will do a POD, but it will be the end of May at the earliest, at this stage.

The term "skinjobs" is so evocative of Blade Runner; but other inspirations for this title include 2000 AD's biochips (Judge Dredd, Rogue Trooper); Sense8; Person of Interest; the HBO Westworld; Gerry Anderson's Joe 90; the second and third Matrix movies (specifically, Agent Smith's ability to clone its mind even into organic beings); GITS; and even the whole Star Trek franchise, Star Trek: Picard in particular.

The themes of identity theft, engram recording and transfer, the idea that an entire mind could be cloned like a cellphone and downloaded into an android body, are probably the hardest core of the whole cyberpunk genre.

There is another supplement for Neon City Overdrive in the pipeline and some other settings in the works. Super vague, I know. :)

Yay I bought it !
I m realizing Skinjobs could be "hacked" to use it as a "framework" for netrunning avatars, or did you plan to make a supplement on netrunning and deckcowpods ?

Thank you! A few people have asked about more detail on the grid and hackers/hacking. I am still formulating ideas on this topic, so that’s a “maybe”. :) Any supplement on the grid will be a while away.

Using grid personae in the same way as skins makes a lot of sens, got to say, i dread most of time net/grid mini games mechanics in ttrpg :/
so that could be cool to use some hints

I was not intending to make a POD version, but if there is a demand for it I will see what I can do.

I'd like to get a pod and get the core rules and this at the same time.

Thanks for the feedback. I will start to prepare the POD file. It will be a number of weeks as the proofing process has a slow turn-around.

Great news, thanks. Is it possible to offer a premium paper version? They are so much nicer. In the meantime I ordered the hardbound corebook. Awesome stuff

I can do it as a premium soft back. I didn’t with the main book because there would be only a few dollars difference in price between a premium soft cover and hard cover, and I wanted to provide a more affordable POD option.
Any POD option for Skinjobs will be a number of weeks away.

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.
