Lairs for Ocelots Cyberpunk 2020 Character Generation System

without comments

LAIRS

Author: unknown.

This article is an add-on to Ocelot’s Alternate Charater Generation System and offers you the additional advantage of a secure lair.

Everyone needs a good hiding place. Even edgerunners. This system is designed to work with Ocelots alternate character creation supplement. So you had better be using it, if you plan on using this in your campaign. The cost is calculated by taking the base cost security and then multiple it by the other factors. This is the base cost in SP for this particular lair. Multiple lairs can be purchased just like the first one, costing the same amount of SP as before. The minimum cost is 1 SP point.

Night City Map

with 8 comments

Night City is the hometown of Cyberpunk. Most use it as a campaign-setting. Since the Night City Sourcebook is no longer available, most don’t have a map. But you need one – I can tell by the amount of people asking google for a “night city map” and then being send here.

RTG hasn’t allowed to republish the original map, so I can’t help you there. BUT on the web there is one map that shows greater Night City, which might help you. It can be found here. Another Map reminds me very closely of the city center, but might be just the one from the main sourcebook, which you probably already have.

But there are a lot of sites out there with other, less fictional cities, making them useable for a cyberpunk campaign. I’m going to list some and would ask you to add any other you know in the comments.

Or you play on Mars.

The Gaslamp District

with one comment

The Gaslamp District

a new section of Night City by Gary Astleford (ocelot@connectnet.com)

HISTORY

The Gaslamp District was pieced together before the collapse by residents searching for the quaint history of other nearby cities. Older, decaying buildings were renovated and streetlights were replaced with working gaslamps (hence the name). After the collapse, the buildings fell into decay again. The area’s proximity to the Combat Zone lead to several turf wars between rival gangs. Read the rest of this entry »

Ocelot's Gang Creation Chart

with 22 comments

GANGS IN CYBERPUNK 2020

by Gary Astleford (ocelot@connectnet.com)

The article is a set of tables that allows you to create quickly some cool and individual gangs for the use in Cyberpunk 2020. Its tells you how big the gang is, what the focus, equipment and power of the gang is going to be.

You may roll the same gang type twice. This means that the gang in question is very narrow in its goals and its means of achieving them. This isn’t a bad thing at all, and it does nothing to make the gang more or less exciting, depending on how the GM interprets his results.

There is, however, a special case. If “Puppet Gang” is rolled, make a note of the result and roll on the chart twice more. The following two rolls indicate the Puppet Gang’s front – the type of gang people perceive them to be. If either of the two rolls result in “Puppet Gang” again, then it is common knowledge that the gang is, in fact, corporate owned and operated.

Note that not all gangs are evil, nasty, antisocial, and violent. Some are merely driven to such a course by outside influence and the pressure of the street. In addition, not all gangs are brought together because of poverty and lack of parental attentions. Imagine a gang made up of spoiled rich kids who douse vagrants with lighter fluid and set them on fire. Sound familiar? Read the rest of this entry »
