Android: Shadow of the Beanstalk – Genesys Sourcebook

Shadow of the Beanstalk is a 256-page sourcebook for use with the Genesys Roleplaying System. In this book, you’ll find new rules for character creation, new weapons, equipment, and adversaries, new rules for running the net, a guide to New Angeles, and advice for Game Masters running a campaign in the cyberpunk future of Android. Even better, all of this comes accompanied by beautiful art and elegant mechanics that can be used in any science-fiction setting for the Genesys Roleplaying System.

New Angeles

In New Angeles, you gain control of one of these mega corporations, then you use your wealth and influence to create more wealth and more influence. To do this, you cut deals and forge temporary alliances. You leverage your credits and assets to gain financial superiority over your corporate rivals. All the while, you also need to keep an eye toward the masses, striking deals with the other corps as necessary in order to keep a lid on crime, disease, and unrest. If you want to maximize your profit, you need to keep New Angeles open for business!

Android Mainframe

Most of the generic programs write pathways between Titan’s various nodes, allowing you to place a blue partition between the nodes on the board. Whenever your partitions seal off a section of the board containing only your access point or access points, they are “secured” and flipped face down. They are no longer vulnerable to your opponents’ programs, and you will score the accounts they control at the end of the game.

NISEI-1 – Downfall

It happened without warning, out of a clear evening sky. The neons of New Angeles were flickering to life, as an equatorial twilight speed across the city. Events progressed broken and disordered. A strobing light directly overhead, like a drive flame where no ship should be. A rain of carbon shards shattering windows and downing hoppers in Manta, molten and twisted into tortured forms. Cayambe rung with a bone shaking vibration, as if someone had capriciously plucked a planet sized guitar.

HardWired – Cyberpunk RPG

Originally published to be used with the first edition of Cyberpunk, the book was meant to immerse players in the world of Hardwired by the author himself. Quoted as being Cyberpunk, about 40 years later, the world of Hardwired is completely separate from the world of Cyberpunk, and as such players are advised to use the rule set of Cyberpunk, but create new characters using role such as the iconic Panzerboy or the netrunner-like ChrystalJockey.

In each game you’ll improve your deck with a mix of strategies, while earning Karma to give your character cyber upgrades, physical augmentations, magical initiations, weapons training and Edge.
