  1. You've been taking lessons from the Moderation team over at RPGNet, I see.
  2. Really? I did a search for "Lesbian Stripper Ninjas" and that didnt return a result either.
  3. 9 players, looks like its full already. Whenever I do a search on RPOL for Cyberpunk or variants thereof it always comes back blank.
  4. A modern city like Night City will not only be planned with traffic and access in mind from the outset, but also because the buildings have no intrinsic history they can be bulldozed and moved around almost at will. Older cities are more organic, with roads and footways dating back to terrain and property boundries from antiquity. Central London for example is littered with hundreds of short, narrow and twisted 'roads' some of which barely admit a fat person let alone anything vehicular. And as many of the buildings are old they have historic value and you can't just bulldoze 200 year old
  5. Hmm, Gold Coast Florida would be most likely; in the novel the GCML were a merc unit on Sarah's side, and she was in Florida (Tampa Bay). Cowboy's side were in Colorado (originally from New Mexico) in used Flash Force mercs, which makes Gold Coast Mexico unlikely. Still, I rather like the idea of an Australian Aboriginal mercenary outfit.
  6. The Hardwired sourcebook doesnt describe any of these, only the orbital blocs.
  7. I see it as much the same as the difference between Commerical vehicles and Private vehicles. Commercial drones would be built for thousands of hours of continuous use and longevity of service thus using heavy duty parts, designed to be operated by people with absolute minimum of training, and favour form over function. A Commercial drone would probably also buit with a single operational function in mind, eg Carry a Cargo or Be A Mobile Security Camera. Private drones probably wont see as much use as commercial drones so can use parts that sacrifice length of service for performanc
  8. Just thought of a catagory not covered : 9 ; Private recreational - someone's toy (people buy these to play with these days, IIRC there are drone races, so logically in the future where tech like this is cheaper people might have their own drones to play with) Which takes me off on another tangent.... It occurs to me that in the future drones could be almost like cars today. Aside from commecially owned drones, people may own one for personal use (send your drone out to pickup the shopping rather than go yourself, use it to deliver something) or for recreational use. And if drones
  9. If this is a tie-in to Augmented Reality, should there be a table for "How do you encounter the bot?" Something like : 1 - 3 ; Drone is patrolling / working in a preset area and will respond to or approach the PCs. 3 - 6 ; Drone is on its way to a specific location and will ignore the PCs unless they impede it. 7 - 8 ; Drone has become lost, disorientated or accidently immobilized. It may be asking for help, offering a reward to anyone who helps out, or a repair team might already be on their way. 9 ; Drone has been intentionally vandalized and stripped of several parts. 10 ; Dr
  10. There's also more exotic stuff that could be worked into CP2020 (or 2077), like Electrically charged armour and Liquid Armour. (I'm wondering how you'd work cage/bar armour into CP2020's SP system without an extra set of die rolls - once to penetrate the cage and another to penetrate the vehicle behind it.)
  11. The original was developed in 2014 but required a lab full of equipment to run it. They've now reduced the equipment so it'll fit into a small backpack. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-42430895
  12. Wait...so underground Berlin has miles of underground tunnels with the prospect of abandoned / secret Nazi/Soviet/CIA places (not forgetting the allegations that Hitler was into the occult), and also the potential for Ninja Turtles?
  13. What about the Berlin metro? It's old enough to have predated both WW1 and WW2, it saw extensive damage in WW2 both from allied bombing and the soviets in the battle for Berlin, then had fifty odd years divided by the Berlin wall with ghost stations and disused tunnels. The scope for taking artistic license down there is immense!
  14. The London Tube is of course a good one. In Split Second it was flooded and abandoned but it could be a great dystopian underworld There's a faint bell ringing in the back of my mind about this; but I may be getting mixed up with Christopher Fowler's Roofworld (which is London, secret society, but up not down), and/or the old Hellgate London PC game which used the Tube a lot. Technically there's more of the London Underground system above ground than there is below it, but the UK is riddled with underground places that lend themselves to fantasy fodder. http://www.subbrit.org.uk/ is
  15. Before I add in my 0.02eb, are you looking for Cp2020 figures or something more realistic?
