Games-In: Hört ihr mich?

subject Cyberpunk Relaunch: PR?

Liebes Games-In Team,

angesichts des baldigen Starts der Neuauflage von Cyberpunk 2020 wollte ich als Webmaster von – der wohl größten und aktivsten Cyberpunk 2020 Seite (jedenfalls in Deutschland) – anbieten, den Neustart mit z.B. einem Gewinnspiel oder einer Verlosung zu unterstützen, wenn Sie entsprechende Preise stiften möchten. Infrage kommt auch ein ein Promoabenteuer durch mich etwa auf dem NordCON.

Zudem wollte ich der guten Form halber abklären, ob Sie mit der Verwendung des Logos / der Bezugnahme von Inhalten von Cyberpunk 2020 durch meine Seite einverstanden sind. Ich bin bisher davon ausgegangen, dass meine Seite, die ohne Einnahmen auskommt, Ihre Zustimmung schon wegen der damit verbunden Werbung für das durch Sie vertriebene Produkt hat.

Zudem plane ich die Veröffentlichung eines Artikels in dem neu entstehenden Fanzine “Abenteuer.” Auch hier bitte ich um Zustimmung für die Verwendung des Namen Cyberpunk2020. Bei Abenteuer. wird es sich um ein Printmagazin ohne Gewinnabsicht handeln – aber das Heft wird Geld kosten, um die Druckkosten auffangen zu können.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen

Ihr Karsten […]

Geschrieben hab ich die Mail am 11.5., eine Antwort gab es bisher nicht. Vielleicht liest ja jemand von Games-In hier mit… falls meine Mail im Spam-Folder gelandet ist.

Freedom is just another word for having nothing left to lose

Funny, for all surveillance, Osama bin Laden is still free — and we’re not. Guess who’s winning the “war on terror?” – Cory Doctorow

Today is “Dark Future Day”. Its scaring me. Check the news: As you probably know, everybody within the European Union has every use of a telecomincation device (mobile, computer) safed and made accessible by the government. Not the content of your conversion, but date, time, length, sender, receiver. Also logged: Every station your mobile phone registered with. That’s scary allready, but no longer a news. New is:

Cory is right. Osama bin Laden wins the fight agains Freedom. And we voted those who help him into power. I wonder if he can stop laughing at us?

Aerial Intrusion Device

Real Life

The following device is based on Yves “The Fusionman” Rossy’s Jetpack. For copyright reasons, I’m not showing you any photos, but link to them:

There is a video on YouTube, too:

And Wikipedia has an entry, too.

Game Stats

For a Cyberpunk setting I would leave the requirment to launch the jetpack from an airplane or something similar. The reach should be short, but not as short as the prototype (6.5 minutes at 185 km/h). So lets put it at 220 km/h for 10 min, giving it a reach of 35 km. It has near to none radar signature, but does emit heat, so it might be detectable.


Top Speed 220 km/h Acc/Dec 110/20 km/h
Crew 1 Range 35 km
Pass 0 Cargo none
Maneuver +3 SDP 5
SP 0 Type Jetpack
Mass 20 kg Cost 20,000 EB

Special Equipment:

Nav System, stealth option, parachute

Leading To War

without comments

I recommend watching this free documentary, Leading To War. Its a great reminder how we all were lied to to justify the war on the Iraq. The best free download since the NIN album.

Oldfashioned: Pac Man

without comments

If you turned javascript on, which most of you seem to have, you can play pacman with the widget below. If you turned it off, you won’t see a thing.

Instructions: Use the arrow keys to guide Pac-Man. P – Pause/unpause game Q – Quit game M – Mute/unmute sound L – Low quality on/off by Kim Schulz. – Aalborg, Denmark

Admittedly, this has nothing to do with Cyberpunk, you now you know why I don’t have time to write posts.

Cover of Cory Doctorow's Little Brother NovelCory Doctorow has put his new book, “Little Brother” online. He’s so good I had to add him to my list of Cyberpunk writers (see sidebar).

It’s a

young adult novel about hacker kids who use technology to reclaim the Bill of Rights from the DHS after a terrorist attack on San Francisco.

Cyberpunk Search Engine

with one comment

You may have noticed that the search option for this site changed. I fist added Lijit-Search, which allows you to search not only my site, but also other sites I added. It was not received well, so I deleted it.

So now I changed to a Google Custom Search, which allows us (i.e., you too) to add more cyberpunk related websites to its database. It’s home page can be found here, with instructions if you want to use it on your website/blog.

Check it out, if you like – searching for “cyberleg” for example, does not feature this blog on the first place, but not at all. Instead you find the official errata on R. Talsorians Site first, then some of Christian Conkle’s stuff. Nothing else, esp. no non-cyberpunk related material. No shadowrun cyberleg here, promise!

I hope you like it.
