Welcome to the Time of the Red, Choomba! The Megacorporations spent decades wrecking everything and in the aftermath of their last War, everyone has to fend for themselves.

A man with a cyberarm and a cowboy hat walks through a Night Market, exploring what's for sale.

But that’s just fine. You can handle it. After all, in a world of vicious boostergangs, rampaging cyborgs, corporate assassins, and nihilistic doomsday cults, there’s only one rule: Always take it to the Edge.

Take the big risks, get the big rewards. Be the action, start the rebellion, light the fire. Never drive slow when you can blaze a trail.

You’ve hooked your Militech pistol to the interface in your brain; upgraded your cybernetic fist with carbo-glas blades; and installed cybereyes that can pierce through the red haze like morning fog. There’s a world full of opportunities out there, just waiting for the right Edgerunner. Maybe that’s you.

Three edgerunners cautiously make their way down a corridor during an infiltration mission.

Cyberpunk RED is the latest edition of the classic tabletop roleplaying game of the Dark Future and encompasses everything you need to explore the post-War world of the Time of the Red, including:

  • A dense, deep-dive into the history and geography of Night City and the greater Cyberpunk world, and plenty of the lore about the Time of the Red.
  • Ten unique Roles for you to play: charismatic Rockerboys, lethal Solos, quick-hacking Netrunners, inventive Techs, lifesaving (and taking) Medtechs, hard-hitting Medias, duty-bound Lawmen, scheming Execs, clever Fixers, and range-riding Nomads.
  • A huge collection of useful tools, powerful weapons, protective armor, and gleaming cyberware to help you rule the Street.
  • Three Screamsheet adventures to show you what Cyberpunk is all about.
  • Pregenerated opponents perfect for populating the Combat Zones and Corporate compounds, plus encounters that use them to bring the City to life.

Want to try out Cyberpunk RED but not ready to take the big plunge? We've got you covered. Check out the Cyberpunk RED Jumpstart Kit, the perfect introduction to the Cyberpunk universe. Or, if you want to go classic, you can always pick up the legendary previous edition of this game, Cyberpunk 2020.

Hello there. I'm really liking the look of this especially as it is well supported in Foundry VTT. I'm holding off purchasing however until I find out whether you have bookmarks in your PDFs for this and the other RED products. As much as I love printed books I'm planning on going all digital and this is one area where things can be a bit hit and miss. Please let me know soon, as I'm itching to buy. Thanks in advance.
PS: Apologies if this q. has already been answered ut the comments section for this is definitely TLDR :)

There has been some promotion of a 2077 version of tabletop Cyberpunk coming in the next year. Will this still use the system used in Cyberpunk Red?

You're probably referring to the Cyberpunk Edgerunners Mission Kit. It will be a standalone product using the Cyberpunk RED ruleset but similar to the Jumpstart Kit in general composition. There will be a separate Cyberpunk 2077 sourcebook down the line as well.

Just got a few questions (one is sort of a follow-on from someone else's queries about the implanted frames);

1. One of the other posters asked about -implanted- linear frames, and the response just mentioned linear frame; I'm assuming that the response was definitely about the implanted version and not the exoskeleton version (as a friend pointed out, the response mentions directly welded to the bone lace, which is a requirement for the implanted but not the exoskeleton version). If that response was instead about the exoskeleton then please let me know!

2. Based on the assumption above (about being about the implanted version), is it the sort of visibility that could be feasibly moulded over by bodysculpting? You'd presumably still look rather large, and likely still quite muscular even with careful bodysculpting to tone down the extent, but is even that feasible, or is it just not really possible to hide the implanted linear frame's additional bulk? Part of me is quite curious since...See more

1. External linear frames look like exoskeletons of various sorts you wear so most likely, yes.

2. We don't generally get into specifics as to what an internal linear frame looks like because we don't want to limit your creativity too much. Some people want to be the small catgirl who can smash cars in a comical fashion. Some people want to be fairly large and bulky and showing all their chrome. We leave it up to your table.

3. We'll look to see if that needs to be fixed in the next update.

4. It includes it.

5. Welcome to working for the Corps. Lateral promotions and more responsibility without more benefits are par for the course.

They are different due to changes in development between the publication of the Jumpstart Kit and the core rulebook. We're looking into updating the Jumpstart Kit but might not be able to until the next print run. In the meanwhile, there is a conversion guide for the Jumpstart Kit missions available on our website in the Downloadable Contents section. rtalsoriangames.com

Just adding a comment to report an error on the form fillable character sheet. Every time I try to set the base of the Endurance skill, the base of the Riding skill changes to whatever I set it to. I think these two boxes are connected for some reason when they should not be.

I have seen similar problems described for form-fillable pdf sheets several times elsewhere.

I cannot remember the exact steps involved that someone suggested for solving this yourself whenever it occurs (if I ever come accross it again I will update this post), but it essentially involves editing the PDF and renaming the text field that is being updated in error (Riding skill in your example) to something else to break whatever linking code is in place.

Hello, it's me again! First of all, thank you very much for the answers you have given here! =)

I have more questions, this time about economic issues in the setting.

1 - Throughout the book, we have clues to how the scenario economy works, and we even have tables for jobs and hustles for each role. But what about normal people? How much do normal people (NPCs) normally earn in Night City per month? I imagine at the low end it should be little more than enough to pay rent and the minimum standard of living, but is there a way to confirm that? A earn range, maybe?

2 - What if players want to earn extra cash outside of their normal role jobs? How to deal with professions outside the roles? Example: maybe the Solo or Netrunner is also a dancer in their freetimes, or a masseur, or any job that could pay by hour. What a GM should do? How much they will earn? In page 376 table, the book says that a Professional Service could cost 100 e.b (if Good) or 500 e.b (if Excellent) per...See more

1. Never enough. Most residents of Night City are scrambling to keep afloat. Honestly, the specific amount doesn't matter too much. You get to decide which side of the line they're on since money is always a motivation.

2. That's really still the Hustle tables just with a different flavor. Keep in mind what you pay a professional per hour or week isn't just going into their pocket. That's paying for infrastructure, utilities, parts, and so forth. In the end, they're probably pocketing around what the Hustle tables would give them.

3. Consider bus tickets covered for anyone with a Generic Prepak or higher Lifestyle. For everyone else, 10eb for a three day pass.

One reason I've hesitated getting the new Cyberpunk RED is the small amount of supporting material available. With Cyberpunk 2020, there was quite a bit of supporting material. I feel like the 2020 material is easily converted to be used with RED, but I am hopeful that the material available here in PDF will show up as hard copy soon. Does anyone know how much supporting material might be on the way for Cyberpunk RED? Any specific titles for us to look forward to?

Hello!

We do release a PDF each month on our website (some of which is available here). Most of it will be collected in Interface RED. Volume 1 has already done so. Those will be available in print. In addition, we just released Tales of the RED (a mission book) as well as several ancillary products (all available here). We are currently working on Black Chrome (a gear book) and Danger Gal Dossier (a NPC book).

There are several small content in their websites (called "DLC"). An adventure also came out recently, Tales of the RED, with 198 pages. But if you're thinking of more traditional material, like back in the day, it's still supposed to be released.

By the way, I've noticed that it's something generalized: apart from maybe big fish like D&D, most other RPGs that I follow haven't come out more supplements in the same way as they used to. Many, if not most, have prioritized ready-made adventures, including even D&D. The first edition of Eclipse Phase, which is not even that old, has a lot of interesting supplements, for example, expanding characters and locations, but the second edition has practically nothing in that sense. For a few years now, either the market is in crisis, or the sales models have changed. What a shame, I like books with more traditional content.

In the common lifepaths, there is a background where you grew up in the new Mega Buildings. But according to the book, the first Mega Building was only ready in 2035+ (in Watson Dev). It is implied that most were still under construction. Since the game's starting date is 2045, that means there's no way adult characters or even teenagers grew up in these places, which are at most 10 years old since they were built.

Did I miss something?

The buildings are so large, some people were living in them before they were constructed. And You didn't need to be born there. 10 years of life in a place is plenty to be considered "growing up".

On the fillable character sheet, whatever you write for base on dance gets copied to pilot sea vehicle and vise versa. The same is true for endurance and riding. Can this be fixed?

I don't know why the publisher hasn't fixed this. It's super easy. If you have any version of Adobe Acrobat Pro (reader won't work), you can go to "Prepare Forms". This will show you all the form fillable fields. You'll find that Pilot Sea accidentally has the same title as Dance Total. Right click on it and change the name of the field to Pilot Sea Total (or really any unique name you want). The reason this is a thing is because sometimes you'll want fields to duplicate. Like when you add your attributes to things it's easier to just duplicate the attribute field to all the places it's needed to display. Hope this helps. The publisher is super awesome for not locking the character sheet down. I've seen allot of publishers do that and it's even more frustrating.

After falling into the Netrunner rabbit hole with supliments such as Rache Bartmoss' Guide to the Net I am very excited to see what kind of weird wirehead scenarios I can come up with. Are there any plans on any Netrunning supplemental material such as new programs, rogue AI or tool kits for making more elaborate architectures like the data fortresses of old?

PS I know it was made a million years ago but I absolutely love Guide to the Net and plan on jury rigging material from it for Red games.

We've just released the Netrunning Deck, which provides cards to use to build Cyberdeck program load-outs and Net Architectures. A full supplement for Netrunning might come in the future but isn't in the immediate plans. That doesn't mean there won't be some fun, smaller things coming out before then, though!

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.
