  1. I do not see it working if it is transposed from Japan to the United States. Some of the meta-themes in the political universe of Ghost in the Shell, specifically the tensions towards Imperial America, would not be able to function if it was a movie situated in the Beltway. I think the Japanese crew should be allowed to expand. But I do not see it being able to function the same way in North America. I think there is great potential, but I do not think the style can be better placed by making it a politically correct movie hampered with the certain ideological zeitgeist of the U.S.
  2. Something like this? The Cyberpunk community would like to petition the use of Interlock, the gaming system of Cyberpunk, to be used freely for development of roleplaying games. This petition would like to note that a new edition of Cyberpunk with a new rule set has been released and that this petition does not touch upon that system. Instead, the cyberpunk community would kindly use the pre-existing Interlock rule set. The implementation to safeguard R. Talsorian's rights would be similar to the manner implemented with the Open Gaming Licence with d20.
  3. Depends on the character, but I think one of my favourite characters - Scream, her favourite weapon was a mobile phone. Not to kill people with but to arrange to have people die. -Chrysalis
  4. Apperently the dolls were an experiment with doing something different. This was mentioned in an interview with Mike in the first issue of Roolipelaaja magazine. -Chrysalis
  5. Review: C3 Flashpak First impressions: The general look and feel of the flashpak is that of being stylish. Good images and plenty of black to keep up the cyberpunk mood. They had done away with the ken and barbie dolls of tomorrow with computer generated images of Cyberpunks. All signs of going in a good direction. Taking off the plastic wrapping revealed a 3 panel GM screen and a 32 page booklet nestled inside the screen. The GM screen was filled with various tables that could be considered useful, mostly damage tables of all sorts, shapes, and designs. Some of the damage tab
  6. I was in Forbidden Planet London, when I picked up the Flashpak. it was just regurgetated info from v3 with a GM's screen. There was a page on what is an adventure, and an adventure at the end of the 32 page booklet, which unless you had played before was far too sparse for you to actually develop into a game. What is needed is that the adventure should be the kind that would be an introduction to the gaming system. In a similar way as with some games having an introductory level. I will talk to you all later. -Chrysalis
  7. As I said my own take is that you can have a skill 10 in a martial art, but its not an effective martial art without physical prowess - your BOD stat. With extended practice you develop muscle memory. I learned judo when I was twelve. I still do combat rolls as I was taught nearly 15 years ago. When I did parachuting we practiced so many times, its near automatic now. Its the same with a lot of training, prone three quarters prone position are easily taken. I guess what I am trying to say and this is something which I have thought about in length is that all damage is based on BOD.
  8. Well, here is my take: I do not think martial arts should be more difficult. Quite the opposite I think they should be easier. Anyone in Cyberpunk can go out and fight. Whether its at a dojo or in a back-alley. You can pick the martial you want to learn from anything from prestigious school to one of the many practicioners who have a shingle up. In additiion if you are lazy you can go to your local Ninja store and update you l33t ninj4 skillz with vast variety of skill chips. Just because you know a martial art does not make you stronger, or faster. That comes directly fro
  9. It depends on the model. Most will have the biopod housed in the torso. But there is nothing stopping you from having your biopod floating above your metal shell. Just highly impracticle. I see 'faces between the different borgs to be a bit fiddly, but most of the odd 'faces are the ones of defunct models. I hate to say it, but I don't see many people buying FBCs with biopod attachments unless they can use them. -Chrysalis
  10. Well KS was like that. But that was years ago. Everyone will just say its easier on picking up the RIFTS: Game Master Guide. Not sure how useful it is. Or if you can photocopy the relevant pages for personal use and then have your scrawl on it. -Chrysalis
  11. Australia: Steyr Aug Canada: C7 aka M16 C8 aka M4 assault carbine India: INSAS 5.56mm CGG Assault Rifle 7.62mm with 1.5x Optical Scope Questionable reference for both weapons, wikipedia. The British army now uses the SA-80A2, in addition there is also the LSW and sniper rifle version of the SA-80 in use in a section. About the Falklands: Umm... no the paras specifically used the FN-FAL rifle as that was used by Argentinian defenders. Intermediate powered assault rifle? Maybe a term among gun bunnies, but for me: if it hits and you go down it does not matter w
  12. I use a system modified from CP v3. Hitpoints are your BODY x2 Your armour gives you additional hitpoints. So an SP24 softweave jacket actually gives you +24 hitpoints. When your jacket reaches zero it does not protect anymore. You also have Damage resistance on your armour, so the metal insert in your torso gives you 5 points of damage resistance. That means if you shoot yourself with your HanSolo, dealing you 12 points of damage, 5 points get deducted from your overall damage, and the other 7 are deducted from your armour jacket, makign it now have a SP of 17. Simple.
  13. i had a chat with DogSoldier about this. one thoguht that did come out is that every second level, you can choose a applied skill that belongs to your core skill so at level 2, you can choose from taking grappling, locks, striking, pins, etc. These are independent of your specialisation and do stack with it as long as it is relevant. Applied skills give a +1 circumstance bonus. So if you are level 3, you have the applied skill in grappling, and have decided to forego level 4 to get a specilisation in judo. Whenever you try grappling with judo, you gain a +3 bonus with every grap
  14. This is my bible: Surfers, Soulies, Skinheads and Skaters: Subcultural Style from the Forties to the Nineties I also like using fetish magazines for inspiration. Its a shame that nerds like only wearing funny t-shirts and nothing like mobile screens and such. There was a thought by me ages and anges ago to write a cyberpunk fashion guide.Nothing came of it though. -Chrysalis
