Mission Driven Playtest


Why another cyberpunk game? Unlike other cyberpunk games, Mission Driven takes place in the modern world, not the future. Nor is it based on an alternate history or a retro-futurist imagining of what people in the 1980s thought 2020 would look like. It’s based on our real world.

But isn’t the real world boring? No. The real world is full of violent uprisings, corrupt politicians, creepy cults, corporate conspiracies, and weird technologies. You can get a bitcoin wallet implanted in your hand. You can 3D print a gun. Drug dealers use drones to smuggle drugs into prisons. A washed-up game show host was elected President of the United States. The real world is cyberpunk as heck.

And let’s face it, roleplaying games are fiction. We’re not playing in the real world, but in dramatic interpretation of it. Think of television shows like Leverage and Scandal, or William Gibson’s “Blue Ant trilogy” for inspiration.

So what do we do in this game? Play video journalists exposing corporate malfeasance, startup employees trying to build alternatives to the status quo, modern-day Robin Hoods stealing from the rich to feed the poor, or something else entirely.

What Will I Find In this Document? The basic principles and rules, explanations of the Playbooks and Crewbooks.

For the playtest version, I’m going to assume that you know how to play roleplaying games in general and are familiar with “Powered by the Apocalypse” games like Apocalypse WorldDungeon World, and Monster of the Week.

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.
