Cyberpunk is one of my favorite genres. I just love the whole technology/dystopia/cyberspace aspect of it. There’s a new cyberpunk RPG that’s up on Kickstarter now and looking for some funding love. It’s The Veil.
The game runs on the Apocalypse system. So if you’re familiar with that, you’re ahead of the game (including me. I know of the system, but I’ve never actually read into it. Hey, there’s a lot of games out there and only so much time in the day). The rules, of course, have been tweaked to specifically work within the world and genre. This includes 9 playbooks for your characters with two more in development. They include such diverse options as a newly-awakened AI, an Empath able to wield emotions as though they were physical things, and a character with a cybernetically-enhanced brain capable of doing all sorts of wonders in the digital world.
The campaign’s already 5/6 of the way to their goal with still 30 days left to go.
