Corporate Fashion from Mutant Chronicles converted to Cyberpunk 2020

Author: Mockery

If you’re a corporate in Cyberpunk 2020, it seems as though your only clothing options are the generic “Businesswear” Fashion Modifier in the CP2020 rulebook, p. 68, or the more expensive “Tanaka Exec Line” from Chromebook 1, p. 63. Hell, even the techies have the “Masetto Tech Clothing” line (Chromebook 3, p. 7-9), so why should you be stuck with discount duds from the Men’s Fashion Warehouse?

So, I present these clothing conversions from Mutant Chronicles. I’m of two minds about Mutant Chronicles: on the one hand, it comes from the makers of Kult, one of the freakiest horror games I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading. On the other hand, it subscribes to the “big guns-bigger shoulderpads” mentality present in Warhammer 40K. Expecting nothing more than man-portable chainguns, I was quite surprised to find this little gem of corporate fashion nestled in between the mega-rifles and electrified claymores.

Redefining the Media Role in Cyberpunk 2020

with 4 comments

While fiddling with the finetuning of the new cyberpunk2020.de page, I was wondering how blogging and other new ways to publish stuff would affect playing a Cyberpunk Media today.

Media was never a really popular choice in our games, because you were dependend on an publisher. You needed the space in a screamsheet or some time on the telly to tell your truth to the public . But it was usually rather hard to pass some dirty truth past the eyes of an editor-in-chief, especially if you wanted to go life nationwide.

But now there is blogging. During the G8-Summit german bloggers showed that they could transport news faster then classic media and correct errors the big networks made. This replaces newspapers. Podcasting replaces the radio. Now Indiskretion Ehrensache (a german blog) showed us that you can even do your own television show on the internet, without big money or an editor behind you.

So the Media has three ways to bring his message across: Read the rest of this entry »

A Cyberpunk 2020 Corporation Guide

with one comment

C’s Corporation Guide Database

From Neon Twilight, modified by me in way not to violate modern day corps namerights.

Welcome to C’s Corporation Guide Database. In this download you will find our 2019 Year in Review, with notes on which Corporations are to watch, and which are to watch out for! 2019 was an interesting year in the Corp Sector, with IBM director Kurt Muller indicted in the tissue resampling scandal in May of 2019, and Tokyo bad boy Tokei accused of murdering his father, the head of Sentai Cybernetics. But 2019 also showed great developments as House Act 21300 passed through EEC Congress January 4th, and Tax Exemption Disclaimer 81/4 was passed unaminously on the Crystal Palace Lunar Province just this November. We are looking forward to another wonderfully unpredictable new year.
