  7. http://www.exmachina.jp/ this looks good. With Gun Fight Chorography by John Woo
  8. Sorry I haven't posted...but I've been away getting my eyes repaired IRL (long story). will be posting new stuff soon
  9. unfortunately. I fell victim a chest cold during the evening. As to PR campaign, well, I tried coming up with a backstory to incorporate the round into the game in some logical manner. Working on the various systems as I try not hacking my lungs out
  10. A bit of history This round grew out of the recognition that while the philosophy of ‘shoot to wound’ may well have worked in the old Cold War face off between the U.S. and Soviet Union, it was not a philosophy that worked particularly well in the lean and mean 10’s and 20’s wherein you had cybernetic soldiers not able to feel pain, religious fantatics dedicated to killing the enemy at all costs, or a hopped-up Pharampsycho on the latest chemical nightmare. After computer modeling to determine the best ballistic performance, accuracy, controllability, and terminal energy transference
  11. a bit more on local german currencies http://www.spiegel.de/international/spiege...,469875,00.html

  13. So 3-5 times the standard RPG charge? okay yeah I can see that
  14. No I don't have any stats for these yet. I'm just trying to figure out how to represent these withing the CPv3/CP2020 rules. here's a wiki on the subject http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermobaric_weapon Ideas are welcome while I cogitate
  15. One must balance the profit sheet verses the economic and political damage a corporation would get if people found out they had a nuke. Governments are one thing, but a corp with nukes? People just need to stop buying a corps products....corp disappears like a greasy blip on the radar. Not to mention countries (in spite of what cycberpunk thinks) will have NO sense of humor on a corp that has nukes. Arasaka's lighting up of Night City is what really killed the Age of the Corporation
  16. The Adeptus Astartes No one is entirely certain exactly where this gang came from, but they’ve become the terror of the Sprawl for thrill-gangs, terrorists, or anyone stupid enough to take a potshot at them (including the police). What is known is that they are exceptionally well armed, armored, and trained, which leans to some suspecting former special forces and edgers forming the core of the unit. And they are utterly crackers, in a predictable way. Small favor for those who cross their path Wearing highly customized powered body armor suits (nearly ACPA in strength and power), ca
  17. BETTER THEN LIFE CHIPS AKA Beetles AKA BTL Simsense technology has come along way since the early teens. Much like the eight track gave way to the Ipod and MP3s, the crude sensedeck has given way to modified ATPR chips and exceptionally sophisticated feedback and enhancement routines built into the modern Internal Sensory Enhancement Chips, more commonly referred to as the BTL Chip. Initially designed as a relatively cheap therapy device, administering virtual simulations of anti pain drug effects to patients who for one reason or another could not physically use a drug, the technology was p
  18. The Chick Gang is scary. I'm also in the middle of designing The Adeptus Astartes Posur Gang. Buncha Ex-military types who happened to play a certain minatures game who went psycho after a bit too much chrome. Now full borg or haveing enough chrome, they tend to show up at random and kill 'Threats to the Imperium' or some such. Thye have truly scary firepower and several armoured vehicles. Cops kinda like them, as they see them as 'Imperial servants', they despise the Inquisition and other meat-supremicist gangs. But they might show up and give the players some firepower if needed....or s
  19. Japanese Police Ranks Superintendent-General: Prefectural Police Chief (kinda like head of State Police in The US) Auditor-General: Director of a Police Section, Budget Committee Members of a Prefecture Senior Superintendent: Tokyo Police chief, C-Swat Chief Superintendent: C-Swat Deputy Chief, Battalion Commanders Inspector: C-Swat Company Commanders, Section Chiefs, Training Commanders Assistant Inspectors: C-Swat Leaders, Assistant Section Chiefs Police Sergeant: Prefectural Police HQ Receptionists, C-Swat Squad Leaders Police Corporal: Experienced C-
  20. for truely hideous rates of fire http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metal_Storm
  21. We also might want to take in the Various Levels of Loathing for Humanity which might drive some people to switch to a 'Furry' cyber/bio mod. Several ideas include: 1) General Digust with Humanity and want to disassociate oneself from it in some small way (Gee, we blew up the world....again. We're dumbasses.) 2) Low Self Image: For whatever reason the person just doesn't like what they look like and thinks going furry will help out. For some it does, others it doesn't, which might lead to: 3) Sociopathic hatred of humanity and cybernetics: Metalmods take away what you are (I kno
  22. I came across this while working on stuff for CPv3 background. These bikes have Rollers (nomads) written all over them. Plus it's the nostalgia value of seeing these again that makes me smile http://www.vincentmotors.com/
  23. An interesting idea would be for older punkers is to play Edgers from U.S.-East hired out by the U.S.G. to case out the Uf.S.A. to see what sort of hsape it's in and get and idea how hard it would be to reintegrate it into Con-US. Of course, many AltCults would probably have a few things to say about this...
