Playing it safe isn't working anymore; you're not going to get out of this clean. You have illicit tech and the talent to use it. Time to go shake the city and see what falls out. You'll get hurt, sure, but what kind of pain will you deal out?

Technoir is a roleplaying game. You play protagonists like cyber-tweaked couriers, hard-nosed investigators, and drugged-out hackers making opportunities for themselves in a despairing world. Using a rules-light system with enough intricacies to spark new fires of hardboiled crime novels and cyberpunk science fiction,Technoir lets you coax, hack, fight, prowl, and shoot your way through a dark future. It features Transmissions--city guides brimming with plot nodes to inspire your high-tech adventures--that the GM uses to create tangled and compelling plot webs that expand and evolve as the players' characters engage it.

I LOVE this game. By FAR my favorite RPG. My book is getting super worn because I read and reread it constantly. I’ve been needing a replacement and I’d love some back up copies for my players. Seth Skorkowsky said he’d take a look at it if I’m able to send him a copy!

I'd love a POD option also. Unless IPR is going to have it back in stock.

I've been a fan of Technoir for a long time. I have the original game and most of the transmissions that used to be free from the creator.

Is there any real reason for me to purchase this "new" version of the core game? I'm happy to purchase the products that are *actually new* and support the folks that have taken the game over, but I don't plan on paying for things I already have.

This is not a new version of the game. It's still the original edition.

Any chance of seeing it in POD outside of IPR?

I would also buy a POD version of this game. Especially considering that it's been "Out of stock" for a while over at Indie Press Revolution.

Going to also throw my hat into the ring - I'd love a POD version.

I would love to see a PoD version as well (IPR shipping is very expensive to the UK).

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.
