HARDWIRED: a free cyberpunk game
« on: June 01, 2018, 02:47:56 PM »
Figured I'd leave this here

***

Wanting more fast-play options for our weekly game sessions, I wrote up a set of co-op skirmish rules. HARDWIRED is sort of an hommage to the old pc game 'Syndicate'. (anyone remember that?)

It works. It's easy to learn. It's fun. It could even work solo. And it's free.

Get it here and enjoy:

Nice, planning to use Pulp Alley for Cyberpunk gaming at some point but the Co-op idea sounds interesting. I'll check these out when I get home.

Syndicate!? Oh that was brilliant. Time for someone to make a new version for iOS!

Thanks for the rules. I’ll sure try them out!

I'd love an X-Com version. Turn-based, customizable, specialists... that would be so much awesome.

Could you explain the Drone mechanism a little bit? Is the reason I'd use Drones primarily because they're faster and I can stay protected? Am I right in reading that a Drone doesn't suffer from the Action fatigue effect?

Liking what I am reading so far - seems to strike a good balance between colour and tactical play. Nice. I think I will give it a try myself soon.

Correct. Agent Drones do not suffer from degraded opportunities but use a D8 for every Action attempt. They are faster and more efficient extensions of the Agent (usually Splicer) who - in our games at least -stays under cover.

Do I see an old Warzone freelancer or am I hallucinating?

Light gray suit? Ponytail? Big honking pistol?  Yes.

Am I being incredibly stupid or are all agents able to access all 12 of the CAPs? just with a higher chance of succeeding on their specialisation?

Thanks for your rules; I'll check them out ASAP.
I'm finishing a short rules for an X-Com solitaire campaign to be playable with any skirmish system. I'm also playing a skirmish system but it is in the first steps. You can read a test battle at my blog: http://javieratwar.blogspot.com/2018/02/x-com-testing.html
Everything is stopped at the moment but if you're interested we can talk in July.
Cheers,
