Beta Red Quickstart

Watermarked PDF

BETA RED is rules-lite cyberpunk Roleplaying Game that aims for high risk, high reward by using a unique d6 dice pool system to meet or beat an action’s Target Number, letting the rule of cool dictate the day. In the heavy tech meets low-life world of BETA RED, the lines between man and machine have become blurred, from the sleek designer-ware of the Ultra Rich to the hardened combat-ware of the gangster, and the only limit to becoming what you want is whether your body and your wallet can handle it...

This Quickstart will give you the rules to play the game, 3 pregen characters, a character sheet, and a simple "Job" that will let you use your skills the way you want.

Beta Red uses a unique D6 dice pool system. Character's Stats = Dice pool. Character's Skill = the number or below on the die to get a "Hit". The number of Hits is compared to the Target Number for the Action. If the Target Number is met, the action succeeds. Characters can use "Feedback" gained on previous "NO HIT" rolls to BUY hits on subsequent actions.

TO PLAY, you will need 1-9d6, paper, a pencil/pen, and at least the Quickstart rules.

Heeroic Studio Gaming was founded in 2020 by Scott Uhls after the successful kickstarter of his first FULL rpg title production, Maximum Apocalypse: The Roleplaying Game. Heeoric Studios Gaming is dedicated to making quality games for players, by players.

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.
