  1. Quote (Blood @ Sep. 12 2002,11:28) On a more constructive note. Cyberpunk house rules source book. The definitive guide to optional rules (!). Most cyberpunk games these days are run with house rules, and it wouldn't get in the way of plans to release V3. Since just about every part of the cyberpunk rules has (or even needs) house rules, the whole thing could use the same layout as a main rulebook. That's probably the best idea yet imho It could be done in exactly the same way as LUYPS, with everyonetaking a section and putting thier ideas down, and then swapping sections and the lik
  2. Wow Malek, I never knew it had gotten so detailed But yeah that's a good place to start forming the "technology tree" It seems like it's heading towards GURPS' "tech-level" system though. Whether that's a good thing or a bad thing, I don't know. It'd need to get organisedinto levels though and prerequisites for OTHER levels etc first. The other thing I wonder is what this should be based on? What is the defining "'punk" thing the game would be suggesting?

  4. Coffee smiles a little, in fact no-one would really notice it but Rat and leans forwards to pick up his beer. He takes a slow sip from the pint glass. "I'm doin' alright for myself, Kid, keeping things smooth and steady, like hows they's supposed to run," his smile broadens before he continues. "But there's always one thing that won't play nice. So tell me more about what we do next." Rat relaxes a little as soon as he hears the word "we", Coffee has his fingers in many pies, and he even owns a couple of the pie dishes.
  5. Jesus tucks the card into the inside pocket of his jacket with one hand and shakes hands with Shrap with the other. "If I need it, I'll use it." He turns his attention to Neko. "Good to meet you kid." He wanders over to the bar, nodding to the other couple of hispanic guys at his table on the way. There's a brief exchange of nods of acknowledgement between the crews at the two tables to keep up the wokring relationships and then the solo and the techie find themselves alone at their table again.
  6. Well first I'd like to add my support to this little endeavour. If it's an actual game fix type book we're going for, then I think anyone interested should go read these 2 threads... The Perfect Cyberpunk?, What would it be like? and... Character Classes, Yea or Nea? Apart from overhauling the Rules themselves, the equipment and guns and cyberware that have been published might benefit from an overhaul in a more detailed Shadowrun type affair? There's been a big technology shift in the 15 years since the game was originally written too. Maybe going more BioPunk rather

  8. I'd love to get it underway again, I think Phipp's KISS system has the beginnings of something extremely promising. We have got the right mix of folks here, because we're the types that are drawn to "the Edge", the trouble is I doubt RTal would let a group of us loose on their franchise And the thing we'd need more than anything is an editor, someone to tell us when our stuff sucks the big one. I agree with Malek that CP won't survive v3. It sounds like it's trying to be all things to all people, and I don't think ANY of the people want that. Shadowrun did have some fantastic
  9. Jesus sighs and reaches into his pocket, he knows he's in too deep to stop now, Neko instinctively but imperceivably glances over with one hand moving silently up to his own jacket. As he produces his pocket-comp, Neko pauses for a second then relaxes, he wasn't about to let anyone get the drop on his crew again, Jesus didn't even notice. "Here you go," he turns the tiny unit around "'Relativity Aeronautics' it's basically a couple of guys with a rented hanger down at the airport. They were some military crew or something, they stayed together after finishing their tours in Cen-Am. They d
  10. Jesus doesn't notice Shrap's surprise, he's too worried about saving his hide, "Screw me over? Not really my friend, but I'm not going to get caught up in one of Boss Vito's vendettas. Keeping my name on his good side is enough for me."
  11. IS the CP2020 rulebook even in print anymore?
  12. "Christ Thumper!" The chief isn't pleased, but then he isn't surprised. He gets up out of his chair and walks around the desk over to the door. He presses his thumb down onto the lock of the door, and with a short electronic "oooo" sound and the changing of an LED from green to red, the electromagnetic door locks them both in the office. He turns and sighs... "OK, 2 clips, nothing more. What calibre"
  13. Rat and Bloodbath find Coffee out and about in a place called "Kelly's Bar" it's an Irish place, the sign over the door is a neon edged shamrock. No-one knows who Kelly was, whether it was even a real man, or just a good ol' Irish name. There's not too much of the smoke that should haunt a dive like this, the air-recyc sifts most of it out, but the smell of the beers hangs thick, almost thick enough to see. There he is, sitting at the back of the room at an round old oak table. There's a smile on the old man's face when he sees his protege, but Coffee doesn't get up he just smirks an
  14. Jesus might even go a little white, in the bar and with his colouring it's hard to tell. He hold's Shrap's gaze for a moment, before starting to blab. There's only a faint trace of a hispanic accent. "I don't know if this is the bird you're looking for, but I did refit an airframe recently. It was an old Arasaka going cheap, but you know they have such strict standards so it was still airworthy with a little work . Obviously I didn't ask too many questions I just fix 'em get 'em airworthy y'know" His voice trails off leaving it open. "Tell you what though," he says touchin
  15. Neko picks up the shot glass in one hand an pulls the pint closer with the other as Jesus wanders over to their table. He extends his hand towards Shrap "Long time, no see amigo,"
  16. As Betty starts to circulate around the bar, the grapevine begins to heat up slightly. Jesus nods at Shrap, and then shifts forwards on his chair waiting for a sign to come over and start talking.
  17. Rat knows it's a business expense and shells out for Coffee's stuff. With the brown bag tucked safely in the footwell of the van, it's but a short ride back to Rat's old neighbourhood, and Coffee's place.
  18. Betty smiles and goes to the bar returning presently with their order. As she places the last glass on the table she hesitates slightly, making eyecontact with Shrap they hold each other's gaze a fraction longer than normal and she knows that they're here on business.
  19. As Thumper is walking in to the security area Texas, one of the girls at the club, is walking out, she calls back to the chief, "Ok so I'll go with the HK then, Hey Thumper" She slips out of the office under the solo's outstretched arm, and when she's safely past, Thumper shuts the door behind him. The security chief looks up and nods. "Thumper..."
  20. Well I'm baaaaaaaack The week turned into nearly 2 weeks !!! and I haven't had such a great vacation in ages. Gimme a while to read up to where we are and I'll get back on it Thanks guys Mon
  21. Vacation Time I'm off to the beach with my girl for a week guys, so I'll see you when I get back about the same time next week If you want to keep these great "down-time" posts going then I think that'd be cool cos I trust you all not to do "dumb-stuff" Laters, Mon
  22. Betty strolls over in her own time, telling one customer "she'll be with him in a minute". "Hey sugar how you doin' and what can I get for you?" she says with a smile
  23. Shrap leads the way into the dimly lit techie hangout. Folks strain to see the new arrivals and a few of the regulars nod as the pair enter. A few folks crane their necks a little harder to scope out Neko. As the pair venture deeper into the place, the solo's cyberaudio picks up snippets of conversation. "who's that with Shrap?" "Where's Rat?" "I heard they split" A few blocks over, in the heart of the city, Thumper's taxi pulls up in front of his place of business. The place isn't fully open yet, but the door is opened by "The Shark" a burly man, with heavy, rough and easi
  24. GM Note - It looks as if the group will split up into smaller groups for a while Thumper to hunt out some hot ammo, Shrap and Neko to the Live Wire etc, either by a series of drop offs around the city or some Taxi work etc. I'm planning to run all three in parallel in this main thread, so PM each other or post up OOC to let folks (and me) know who's going with whom
  25. The sun is hanging ever lower in the sky now, its obscured by some of the higher buildings of the city. Around the horizon the sky has taken the red tone of the leaves of the trees, above you it's still that gorgeous crystalline blue, with hardly a cloud in sight. The temperature is starting to drop now that you're out of the direct sunlight and a slight wind blows the fallen leaves down the street sending them swirling, rustling around the parked cars. There are a few, maybe four or so hours to go before you are scheduled to meet Tony at Gandolfini's.
