Sprawlrunners is a 71-pages setting-agnostic Savage Worlds toolkit to help you run cyberpunk (with optional magic) in your games! It pays hommage to the classic cyberpunk games of old, bringing their (partially mythically enhanced) flavor to the Fast! Furious! Fun! of the Savage Worlds system.

Sprawlrunners includes:

  • Rules and ideas for playable species and how to integrate them in a – potentially magical – cyberpunk world (4 in addition to humans included)
  • Edges and Hindrances to enhance a cyberpunk feeling (connecting many systems in Sprawlrunners to tie them into character Advances)
  • Two different sets of rules for Hacking in cyberspace (the lightning-quick Fast Lane or the more detailed Slow Burn)
  • Jockeys – characters who control vehicles and drones remotely or directly via implants (plus their toys, drones and vehicles!)
  • A full system for integrating gear and implants into character Advances instead of keeping track of currency
  • Rules to integrate cyberware into character Advances instead of adding another subsystem to the game
  • Generic gear typical for cyberpunk settings (including customizable weapons!)
  • Optional rules for magic in a cyberpunk world (special gear and three Arcane Backgrounds, one of which is brand new!)

Sprawlrunners expands on existing Savage Worlds systems and is a toolkit containing rules and mechanics. It does not provide setting material!

The official Sprawlrunners Character Sheet is form-fillable, provides printer friendly options, and is easily customizable for implants, adept powers, or spells, via layers!

This purchase includes a copy of Hiverunners, a supplement to bring the fantasy insect kingdoms of Stingers & Spores to a dystopian cyberpunk future! (both books are required)

Could you do a supplement that uses the Wealth system from SWADE? I think that would really help. Why did you choose to use the no point magic system?

The Wealth system doesn't work with Sprawlrunners, as Sprawlrunners provides a limited pool of points for equipement. The Wealth System cannot copy that, it assumes characters being able to just keep buying until money runs out. This is contrary to how Sprawlrunners handles equipment.

Sprawlrunners developed from a fan work, which used the No Powerpoints system. I chose to keep it and expand it (mostly by introducing ways to counteract the stiff penalties).

Cyberpunk worlds are extremely deadly because of the array of abilities and resources that the corps have at their disposal. Even a legendary punk in Sprawlrunners is going to be wiped by a lowly Lone Star squad. And if the Stars got backup it would be a massacre. Gear is used to even the playing field if only for a short time. I don't understand the conceit. The Logistic Points also last until the money runs out...it's just a lot sooner. I just made a mage/medic. He has a med kit, 6 patches, fake id, fake license, street bike, low light goggles, a knife, and armored clothing. He can't even afford a gun. The PC is human so having the goggles are necessary for any kind of night ops. I have never liked the the no power point system because the penalties turn brutal very quickly. I've always played it as the cost of a penalty is 2 power points per penalty round down (not up). How do you mimic non-lethal damage from Mana magic?

magic question do you take the npp penalties base on power points? ex if i cast a 2 pp spell i take a -1 on the spellcasting roll

Sprawlrunners uses the default NoPP system of core SW, so add up all cost of PP, half that, and round up.

Thank you for your support. :) There is no bestiary in this book. It is a framework that requires adapting to the respective setting, so a bestiary wouldn't really work.

Hi, sadly as a community content publisher I have no access to most tools. There is nothing I can do in this case. :( Please contact DTRPG directly and see if they can cancel the order completely, so you can re-order the correct thing you wanted! I'm very sorry, the restrictions of the community program prevent me from helping. :(

I think k it's great this is available in print but for this price the Technomancer add-on should have been included as well.

The Technomancer add-on is not my work. Due to the backend limitations of SWAG it would be impossible for me to then pay the author their share of income.

What's the point of being a rigger? I can't seem to find any advantages/edges for riggers. I also can't find any limits on how many drones/vehicles a rigger can control at one time.

Has there been any feedback on hacker types when using the fast hacking rules? With only one edge it seems the spotlight time for a hacker is quite decreased. Has anyone suggested running mixed decker/riggers to give such characters more to do? (or some other mix)

So what edition or time period of that other technofantasypunk game would fit best with this. I am looking for a setting to drop this in...guessing earlier editions as this doesn't seem to have wireless. Also bump on the POD. Timelines you have mentioned seems to have slipped.

First to Third Edition, or 2050 to (roughly) 2065.
Yeah, print won't be happening for a while, sadly. We ran into some major speedbumps, and it's taking so much longer than anyone would have guessed, so at the moment it's "When it's done.". :(

This is excellent! I have a friend who wanted to run a certain other magicpunk game (tm) but got very dismayed about the ruleset, this will work much better!

By the way, am I right in assuming the game uses the No Power Points setting rule? The wording of the Maintaining Focus edge mentions casting penalties from maintaining spells (not a thing in vanilla SWADE) and neither AB has power points listed, hence my guess.

I moved the print to a new layouter, and those files are done and being processed by DTRPG right now! :) Sadly for SWAG publishers this requires some coordination and manual steps. :( I'm hoping to be able to order proofs within the next three weeks. With shipping of the proofs we're looking at hopefully February for the POD option. :)

Proofs have been ordered and should be on route to me. Due to Brexit (I'm in Germany and the books get sent from the UK printers) I have no idea how long that will take, sadly.

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.
