Hi there!

When a PC is "OUT", the fiction will tell if:
-- An Assistance will be needed just to enable them to act (e.g. a teammate that drags them out of the building)
-- Assistance will ALSO add a die to their roll if it mitigates the severity of the injury (e.g. a teammate helping the almost blind PC with navigation while hacking traffic lights during a pursuit)
Either way, the PC who is assisting will have to spend 1 Stress.

And yes, an Overloaded and Out PC is in big trouble and will need assistance or find a way to Take a Breather to recover some Stress.

IS THAT A BEHOLBOT?

Yes, with two additional panels as well :)

What does the colors in the Progress Bars represent?

The color coded bars are there just to indicate the track size - you can see at a glance if a threat has 8, 6 or 4 ticks. They have no mechanical effect and you can fill them in any order.

What mechanical effect does HUNTED have?

The Hunted tag carries a fictional weight to be used against the PC whenever they trigger an appropriate consequence. I've used it early on during a /run where the PC was hunting someone whilst they too had a hunter after them. In other occasion, when the hacker failed to hide their presence while invading a system, I created a "TRACKED" progress bar - the Hunter would show up when it completed and possibly mess up all their planning!

Using Cyberware (mechanically) costs Stress?

In the current edition, To use Cyber in a way that interferes with the fiction would cost as much as a Push (2 Stress). You can also use any Cyber to reduce/avoid a Complication by marking the Special armor box, as long as it makes sense.

Can we have and example of play/action? 

I'll keep adding actual play VODs to this playlist: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLEwTuf4s_00iK7X-ls6ZXduUEfi8amdiA

Do the new rules accommodate for campaign play?

I already used it for short campaign play and we liked a lot. It is all in the fiction. Even though the PCs won't "level up" - they can get access to better gear, contacts and time to further explore their Angles. I think that the upcoming changes will make this aspect much easier to deal with for the GM :)

How does Edge work?

Edge is an advantage in a given Action, by the use of Gear, better positioning or information.
For example, if a hacker is trying to use a facility terminal to control the doors, the system can have an edge over them unless they use a cyberdeck (gear) to match. In another example, a PC trying to sneak their way in a building would have an Edge against the surveillance system if they used a disguise or a cloaking device.

My game is CBR+PNK (https://emanoelmelo.itch.io/cbrpnk), a minimalist Forged in the Dark game in a cyberpunk setting. It was designed for one-shots - the characters are veterans making their LAST run. 

Here are a few ideas for what could be done with the game, other than hacking of course:

  • Runs: think starting situations, fill it with adjacent events, clocks and one or more possible twists!
  • Locations: ideas for places where the Runs might happen
  • Plugins: supplements with modular rules, possibly converting whatever set I left out to the one-shot constraints or even rules for playing it in campaign mode?
  • Lists or tables filled with gear and cyberware
  • Factions: corps, gangs, individuals with their own agenda to cross paths with

Hi, Ian 
Thank you for getting on board!

I'm taking this opportunity to go over all the rules again and also have someone else professionally checking everything to make sure it is clear. There will be changes, new interesting dynamics and the Cyberware part is definitely getting an overhaul. By the way, I may have misunderstood, but when you say about Ammo it sounds like you are picking Gear before hand (like in more traditional systems), but you are supposed to mark only when you need them :)

Now, tell me how you got into our highly encrypted database, overcame all our Red and Black ICP and got the info about reusable player boards?!?!!11

Should each author reply with content ideas for their games like we did last year?

No prob! I'll try to do another this year and make sure to invite you again :)

Thanks!

Amazing, I wish you get excited enough to make a fully fledge game from it! Lovely character designs as well :)

Awesome!

sounds interesting, does it support controllers?

Hi!

Yes, if they  Take a Breather, they can clear 1 to ALL, depending on their roll. These rules are on the back of the Player's pamphlet.

Completely missed this play report back in october, but here it is!

I love how compact and sleek it is!

Hey

In that case, I'd suggest for them to:
A) Pick a special vehicle, like an armored truck, hoverboard, portable bike etc. As this depends a lot on what type of mission they are running, I would let them choose whenever it is needed, like you normally would with gear.
B) Choose an unique, signature ability instead. One that would enable them to be extra cool, beyond the common skills. If it is a fighting ability, for example, think about wuxia movies. Even psyonic abilities can be fine and on theme with cyberpunk stories.

That's awesome! We can talk about the details on another channel like Twitter, Discord or email. Let me know!

From your side, all you need to to is to confirm participation when the time comes. I'll let you know (preferably on another channel like Twitter, Discord or email) :)

A bundle is a collection of products that can go on sale together. The buyer only pays once and gets everything in it for (usually) a great discount.

I'm working on updating an older version in google docs, from there I must be able to export an .EPUB file. Update soon!

1. Yes, each skill can give you up to 3 dice and I understand that wasn't clear enough on the pamphlet.

2. Yes, giving up one die to gain an Edge is optional!

Hi there! There is no Discord server (yet) but this is a very cool idea. Would you mind opening a new topic to share your list with us?

Pô valeuzão! :)

Check out this awesome 2 part Run GMed by Richard Rogers as part of Star Wars Saturdays.

In September, we'll return to high-tech Carannia, the capital city of Serenno. Carannia stretches as far as the eye can see, from the toxic coast to the city limits where the walls keep the wasteland from encroaching. Despite plentiful and abundant Imperial technology, most people continue to live as cogs in the machine of Zsinj's Empire, distracted from their ineffectual lives by slick consumerism and invasive media.

Hi there! There will be more in a couple of weeks or so.

Thanks, Angela! It is supposed to count as a large creature, occupying 4 squares (2x2) or 3 hexes. As a large monster it is bad luck enough, I'm not sure if the very fabric of reality could sustain one double the size!!!1
