About the adventure

Cyber City is an original, cyberpunk setting with a homebrew ruleset inspired by d20, D&D, Numenera, and others. Set in 2089, the game is light on rules and character focused. Expect heavy roleplay and light to moderate combat. There is a heavy focus on improvisation and player choice with players getting to fill in details of the setting. Cyber City is bursting with every cyberpunk trope you can upload into your neuralink. The tone is darkly comic but with real stakes – think Snow Crash, Total Recall, or Robocop. This game is great for first-time gamers and folks who want a game where the rules don't get in the way of a great story!

Additional Details

How to prepare

You will need a mic and ideally a webcam. Reading the rules beforehand is encouraged (they're only a couple pages) but not required. Creating a character beforehand is strongly encouraged. We'll play on Zoom which you should be able to use in your browser. We'll use a digital die roller. You should have your character information easily accessible during the game.

What I provide

I will bring a compelling setting, story, and lots of interesting challenges for the group!

How will character creation work

I will email you character creation instructions beforehand. This is a homebrew setting that is light on rules so I expect the mechanics of character creation to take your less than 30 minutes. What is more pertinent to the game is your character's personality, background, beliefs, what they excel at, and where they struggle. If you're new to gaming and aren't confident creating a character: no problem! We'll spend the beginning of our first session aligning characters and completing character creation.
