About the adventure

It does what it says on the tin, choomba, this is an introduction to the Cyberpunk:RED system and setting. Players will learn all about character creation, get to grips with the basics of gameplay and take part in a brief introduction scenario in which they run a "Combat Cab," a taxi service that takes edgerunners to and from Night City's wild and dangerous Combat Zone. Players will enjoy: - A d10 system combined with a deep skill list, leading to gameplay where success or failure relies more heavily on your character's proficiencies than RNG (random number generation) - A rich retro-future setting that strikes a balance between hopefully Utopian and grimly Apocalyptic; the world of post-corporate-war Night City is at your fingertips, but its numerous pleasures all cost, either in blood or cold, hard cash. - A GM intent on running a fun, inclusive game where players can experience maximum fun and engagement with a minimum of prep or homework. This session is intended to familiarise players with the game system, setting and character creation without them needing to have read the Corebook beforehand. Important or necessary details about the gameworld will *always* be revealed through gameplay, never through telling players to 'look it up'

Additional Details

How to prepare

A Discord account and mic are essential, webcams are optional. The session will be held on Foundry VTT as well which requires an account which is free for players. This session assumes players have little to no experience with Cyberpunk, so reading the rules or creating a character beforehand isn't necessary. Everything else is according to player taste. I tend to handle everything (character sheets, dice rolls etc.) digitally, usually through Foundry. However if you prefer having the character sheet in your hand or rolling physical dice, go for it!

What I provide

As said above, almost everything in this session will be handled digitally within Foundry unless players prefer things like physical character sheets and dice. I have character sheet PDFs that can be printed off by players before the session starts and filled in by hand during the session.

Gameplay details

Players can expect an introduction to the Cyberpunk RED system and setting without any experience or knowledge needed beforehand. This session is intended as a primer/one shot for players new to the game or TTRPGs in general before playing a Cyberpunk one shot or jumping into a campaign, and as such is shorter than most sessions I run. However, in the interest of inclusivity and player safety, there will still be some time devoted to discussing potential triggers and boundaries etc. It's extremely important to me that all players feel comfortable within the context of the game.
