g00ru's Guide to Cyberthings


g00ru’s Guide to Cyberthings is a supplement for the Genesys Roleplaying System intended to complement the hacking rules found in the Android: Shadow of the Beanstalk setting book. Inside, players and GMs will find the following:

  • Memory Units and Utility Programs - A new currency added into rig creation, Memory Units allow for further customization of a runner or sysop's rig. Utility Programs use up these Memory Units and synergize with existing ice and icebreaker programs.
  • Rig creation rules - Custom rigs can be made using the tables to make a PAD, portable rig, or big rig with more available programs than that which the rules as written allow.
  • Personal System Layout - Suggested guidelines help players create their own system layout to facilitate more interesting network encounters. This allows for encounters in which the players' rigs are the target.
  • New Programs and how to make them - This guide includes 7 new ice programs, 6 new breakers, 10 new utility programs, as well as rules to craft programs for the runner or sysop looking to leave their own mark.
  • New Talents - g00ru's comes with 11 new talents. Most of which were created with network encounters or hacking in mind, but a couple could be used in any setting!

This is a pretty good product. Well conceived and executed. Will come in handy when running with the Android setting, or any cyberpunk/sci-fi variation. Nicely done.

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.
