  1. Yeah, according to the Army magazine green book the M4 and the M-16A3/4 (M-16A2 with the upper receiver changed to match the M4 but same A2 barrel) will soldier on for at least another 10-20 years as the standard issue rifle. The OICW is a bit too much to issue everyone from grunt to finance clerk
  2. I'll explain it. Mostly it stems from some bible thumper in New York suing minifigs for her dipshit son swallowing one. She sued them for making "Lead" miniatures. Although the lead was not harmful and she lost the suit the industry in the US panicked and now they are all made from more expensive pewter. The second reason is that Citadel, Wargames Foundry, Old Glory and some of the other more expensive ones constantly re-work their molds to maintain higher quality. This is $ consuming. Also some of the models are getting bigger, 28mm vs 25mm. All that extra 3mm of pewter adds up in the long run.

  5. "No way out" with Kevin Costner has a Cyberpunk flavor. A VERY cold war setting, but the way the story turns out is pretty Cyberpunkish
  6. Yeah, that's what I said, I did not realize they were two trilogies. "I did not realize Gibson's books were part of two trilogies. As it does not sy "Part 1 of the Whatever Cycle" on the cover. So I just bought whatever the book store had. Imagine reading them in this order...."
  7. I am sure this has been discussed before, but what level of technology do you all use? The reason I ask is I usually use the Gibson/RTalsorian level of tech. As the CP2020 book was written. However, I am toying around with upping the tech level some. To more of an "Aliens/Blade Runner/Outland" level. Off world travel/colonization etc. Of course the players would start as dirtside peons. But they could find circumstances sweeping them off world. Most guns are still projectile weapons as in Aliens or Blade Runner. This was all inspired by the Walter Jon Williams novel "Voice of the Whirlwind" which is not really Cyberpunk, but pretty close.
  8. I have to agree. I don't allow Nomads in my game. I think the nomad concept is more of a group theme than a character class. For instance, the campaign I am starting this summer the characters are all part of a poser gang. They have all been surgically altered to resemble 1970s Punk and/or Metal Icons (the players have not decided yet). The Sex Pistols, the Ramones, KISS etc. But for character classes they will still use Solo, Netrunner, Fixer, med tech etc. I mean, why have a Nomad class? Can't a member of a Nomad family or biker gang be a Solo or a Fixer? I really dig these emoticons.
  9. No, but if he did I am sure she would get whacked in the following adventure.
  10. In all seriousness, sometimes I will dress in a suit if it's a corporate relate adventure. Or I'll put on BDUs if it's a big gun adventure. My players will somketimes dress similiar to their characters. I usually play heavy metal or punk (I prefer Maiden and Metallica) in the background, but not loud enough to be distracting. Miniatures help too. Wargames Foundry's Street Violence line is very good.
  12. Around here people try to pick their own nicknames. But without fail NO ONE uses it. They will eventually earn one. More than likely one they dopnt like!

  14. Bladerunner was a terrible adaptation of a novel but a great film. I think it's the best "Cyberpunk" movie out there. They way I see Cyberpunk anyway.
  15. I think the award for the most cyberpunk story has to go to "The Usual Suspects" which is not a Cyberpunk movie, but that's how I run my games. The Players are NEVER in control, the NEVER figure it all out and they are almost ALWAYS wrong when trying to figure out the story. But they really seem to like it that way.
  16. I did not realize Gibson's books were part of two trilogies. As it does not sy "Part 1 of the Whatever Cycle" on the cover. So I just bought whatever the book store had. Imagine reading them in this order.... Mona Lisa Overdrive Virtual Light Neuromancer Idoru All Tomorrows Parties Count Zero By ATP I figured it out. After reading CZ I went back and read them in order. Thank God they are short. I am reading War and Peace now.
