Online enhanced Lifepath Generator

with 4 comments

Arcady0 has created a fantastic lifepath generator. Its useable for all kinds of cyberpunk games, so that even those orknosed Shadowrunners can get the benefit of great lifepath, cyberpunk 2020 like. They use the “fantastic punk” setting.

Real cpunks like us use “classic gamer” or “literary C-punk”. The former is a bit munchkin, the latter just right.

Great work, Arcady0

Here is a thread for comments in the “View from the edge” forum to discuss the generator.

The Gambler – A new Role for Cyberpunk 2020

The Gambler

I once saw a film with Robert Redford playing a professional gambler. The setting was Havanna, Cuba, just before Castro overthrew the Batista dictatorship. I don’t know the name of the film in english… Ford smuggled, played poker, fell in love, was engaged in combat – and he solved all the problems he faced in the way of a gambler. Bluffing, threatening, raising the ante till the others dropped the cards. I realised that no character class of the CP 2020 system mirrored that way of dealing with life. Even throu I am almost violently against adding new character classes to the system, I felt the need to create this one. Because its new (and features a new way of looking at problems). Solos shoot problems. Cops arrest them. Dealers deal with them. Techies build a device to overcome them. Gamblers gamble against them. Thats new, and requires a new character class.
