The Battle of Paradise Falls
Cyberpunk 2020 on Discord
About the adventure
Written by: Cheshire Rated: Adults only Genre: Dark Future / Sci fi / Heist Game System: Cyberpunk 2020/Red & Chromebooks # of Chapters: 3 (4-7 hour sessions) Plot: The year is 2099. The place, Night City; In the heart of this huge city is an abandoned district known as the Pacifica, home to endless gang wars over a massive abandoned apartment complex known as "Paradise Falls". 20 years ago a famous rapper filmed a video there that sparked the bloodiest open conflict the city had ever seen... and as a final farewell he plans to do it again in one week. Gangs have assembled and the government is on standby. War is about to begin. Players will assume the roles of a group of mercenaries hired out to corporations, media groups, or wealthy gang leaders (whoever's money they want the most) to control Paradise Falls and find a legendary secret vault that contains a lost crypto currency worth billions.
How to prepare
Headphones and a working mic are a must, and Discord app is preferred for a closed environment. I have a dice bot that is easy to use (just copy and paste a command for dice rolls). Will require character sheet printouts that you can PM a pic of (via your phone) from Discord before game start for approval. As you spend experience and continue the campaign, the pics will be a visual record of your progression.
What I provide
Players can choose: a copy of my home-built sci-fi RPG "Status Quo: Chronicles of a Universe at War" via pdf, or a copy of my most recent sci-fi novel "Status Quo: The Chronicle of Jane Doe" via pdf.
The gameplay of this game is based on the players and the Roles they choose during character creation. Solos will likely opt for heavy combat roles (lots of shooting and dice rolling, not much talking), while medics and techs will operate in close support while staying out of direct combat. Netrunners will be limited to quickhacks and on-foot breaches while an NPC 'runner gives support depending on the options and team chosen at character creation. At least 4 players will be on the ground, in the action, searching a massive apartment building in the middle of a gang war for a thumb-drive worth billions of Eddies. Expect blood, violence, robots, drones, rap music, gang members, tv cameras, media, pedestrians, and clowns... it's gonna be a hell of a show. Players my opt to work for the same faction, or choose to work for multiple factions; fighting or joining as the adventure ramps up in search of more money than even Saburo Arasaka himself could count.
