Jun 24, early as , it didn't see the light of day until December as a PDF e- book, Hence the alternative title of the game: Cyberpunk X. Cyberpunk V, subtitled, Roleplaying in the Dark Future, and also known as X, is the third edition of the popular pen and paper RPG series Cyberpunk by Mike Pondsmith. After a hiatus in the mid to late s, leccetelira.gqian Games published a third edition to act as a sequel Availability Edit · Drive Through RPG (PDF).

Start from Zero! New start. But a lot can change in five years.

Theres a lot of stuff we old Punks take for granted that the newbies dont have a clue about. So I soon realized that I was going to have to repeat a bunch of stuff that was Basic Cyberpunk So dont be surprised if you see some familiar passages and ideas showing up in parts this new Edition. Maybe YOUVE seen it all before, but theres a whole new generation of punkers like my son , who havent been exposed to what passes as my sense of humor.

Sometimes the original way is still the best way to say something.

Another thing I realized is that play styles have changed. Now RPGs have been supplanted in many ways by their digital bastard children. And that means play styles have changed. Nobodys willing to read nine hundred pages before they can play the gamenot when they can boot up the XBox and get hacking in ten minutes.

So this version reflects the influence of video games on the RPG players of today. This book is designed to get you up and playing within the first few pages. And to do that, weve stolen some of the better ideas from the digital realm.

Most RPGs bury all the fun stuff about the world in the back.

But electronic games are all about showing the flashy stuff right up front. After all, thats why you came to play. So were going to introduce you to our new playground. Its a world some ten to twenty years after the original classic Cyberpunk a world where the vast Net has collapsed, the Megacorps are struggling to regain their stranglehold, and humanity has broken into divided, often warring factions, each centered around a new definition of what it means to be a Cyberpunk.

Cyberpunk V3.0

Youll explore new edgy technologies of nanoscience, genetic engineering, transform viruses, advanced robotics and more. And of course, therell still be more hard riding, black leather trenchcoated cyberstuds than you can shake a mono-molecular katana at, because at the core, Cyberpunk and distopian megaviolence go together like beans and rice, neh? In a computer RPG, you dont move a lot of stats around and juggle numbers to make a character.

No, you start out with a basic idea of the characters role and then make decisions about what you want to add or subtract to make him good at that role. Thats reflected in V3s Character Templates; thumbnails of cool roles in the world that are easily accessible to the new player, followed by simple, very direct choices that allow him to equip that character with exactly what he needs to get playing.

These Templates not only make starting out easy, but help you put your new character into context with the new world weve brought to you. Now, I can hear you old punk RPGers moaning. The only computers unaffected by DataKrash were in the basement of the Arasaka tower in Night City, and they went up in smoke along with the whole corporate district when a 2 kiloton nuclear weapon, placed there as insurance against intruders, was set off by the A-Team of Cyberpunk NPCs demolishing the place with a smaller-yield nuke.

Another virus, this one nanotechnological in nature and created by the Arasaka corporation, ate ALL paper produced since , presumably including cardboard boxes and the stuff you wipe your arse with — while you were wiping your arse with it.

The result was that most records of anything, most literature, most textbooks, encyclopedias and dictionaries, all financial data, all computer software, was either deleted or scrambled.

This of course led to the complete collapse of the financial and government systems. In the present day of the game world, history has become purely a matter of urban legend: most people believe that Richard Nixon committed suicide live on television following the Watergate scandal, rather than resigning, and that the NASA moon landings were faked.

People can't even agree on what year it is, although most think it's some time in the s. Hence the alternative title of the game: Cyberpunk X.

The nuked Night City has been rebuilt using self-replicating nano-machines which constructed buildings, roads and other infrastructure out of the underlying soil and rock. What was once an urban area of a few million inhabitants somewhere between San Francisco and Los Angeles probably somewhere around Carmel, where Clint Eastwood lives has become a mega-city straight out of Judge Dredd, sprawling along most of the of the California coast, all in 10 or 15 years.

The nanites have a mind of their own, and regularly de-construct whole buildings without warning and replace them with new ones.

East coast USA has a similar mega-city called Boswash, stretching from Boston to Washington, and a third, Chi-cag, is growing in the midwest. One problem with this paradigm is that netrunning, hacking or whatever you call it, the staple of the cyberpunk genre, is limited in scope. Perhaps to compensate for this, Netrunners and Artificial Intelligences can use the omnipresent nanites to create physical 'demons' to fight battles.

Another is the afore-mentioned plot holes. Were there no computers unconnected to the internet that could have survived the computer virus? How does the paper virus work, and how come it didn't consume all wood and living plant matter as well? Why didn't anyone just count the risings and settings of the sun or just the passing of the seasons from the last known date until new computers and software were developed?

Bear in mind that all of this is supposed to be happening in the mids, 20 years from now. These are not just urban tribes: they constitute whole nations in the setting. Functionally they are almost like character races in a fantasy RPG. Whereas each role in CP had its own unique 'special ability' skill that characters of other roles couldn't learn, the Alt Cults have their own exclusive technologies and homelands and enclaves, which you can only freely access with a kind of electronic key called a 'Dog Tag'.

Edgerunners are the old-school cyberpunk heroes of the first and second editions of the game, residents of the new maga-cities. Instead of getting their limbs, eyes and other organs removed and replaced with enhanced cybernetic versions of the same, they wear their cybernetics like a kind of jewellery called Nu-Cybe. This generally comes in the form of 'cuffs', metal bracelets with fine needle-like probes that penetrate the flesh and connect to the nervous system, which unfold by some strange pseudo-science into powered armour that covers the limb or body.

This does away with the great dilemma of the first two editions: you wanted cybernetics to make you a better Edgerunner, but adding more implants chipped away at your humanity, gradually turning you into a cold-blooded psychopath. Cyberpsychosis was the Sanity Loss of the first two editions of Cyberpunk. Reefers not the kind you smoke, unfortunately live under the sea, in an octopus's garden, in the shade. Led by a couple of characters called Richard Storm and John Neptune, their unique technology is kind of virus-driven genetic engineering called Transform Nodes or Nets , which they use to adapt their bodies to life underwater or for specific jobs.

One Reef template is called the Whaleboy, while another, the Shifter, a kind of spy class, has 'Sex Change' and 'Succubous' sic as options for its transform nodes. It's not that you're a kinky transsexual, rather that you keep switching your parts as needed to seduce people as part of your spy work. How delightful. Desnai use Japanime-style mecha suits as their signature tech.

They occupy an abandoned multi-media theme park in Orlando, Florida, called Desnaiworld, and have a skull-faced Mickey Mouse icon as their clan symbol.

Did you see what they did there? They have kept the theme park open for business, and in fact it's the cleanest, tidiest place in the Cyberpunk world.

One of their templates is called the 'Imaginator', whose job is obviously to imaginate fings. Their special tech power is controlling mecha and other robots remotely via implanted radio transmitters in their heads, complete with antennae poking out of their skulls. Rolling State are the nomads of CP with all the street cred removed. They live in entire mobile cities on caterpillar tracks, each housing around ten thousand people, their homes, factories, markets and enough weaponry to destroy a small country.

Compare this to the CP Maximum Metal supplement, which explained in detail how giant robots and tracked vehicles over about tons would just sink into the ground and get stuck. The Rollers' signature technology is 'Adaptive Symbiosis' another word for nanotech that gives them near-magical healing powers, poison resistance and superhuman reflexes.

Just as Rollers live in mobile land fortresses, Rips live in floating cities originally built around Japanese coastal cities, cut adrift during on the world's oceans during the Fourth Corporate War.

Whereas the Reefers have a hunter-warrior culture, the Rips are vegetarian pacifists. Of course, they should still be a fucking cyberpsycho, but apparently we're not playing that rule any more.Now RPGs have been supplanted in many ways by their digital bastard children. Later a string of murders occurs in the same neighborhood, all of them men with families.
