GURPS Classic: Cyberworld


Life is Cheap on the Edge

So, paryeni, you think you got what it takes to live on the Edge. Lots of livewires think so. Most of them wind up rotting in the body banks. We'll see . . . we'll see.

GURPS Cyberworld is your guide to the world of the One-and-Twenty, where the United States is under the totalitarian hold of the Provisional Government, the cities are floundering in their own decay and technology races forward faster and faster.

This book has everything players and GMs need to explore a dangerous and brutal world. If you're quick enough, you can outwit the black-clad Nerks, get enough cred and connections to fix yourself up with some street cyberwear, and maybe even jack into the global network and poke around for some easy loot. But if the korp console jockeys catch you in their part of the matrix, you'll be dodging zeromen for the rest of your short life.

Inside you'll find:

  • The World. A 50-year history of the United States and the rest of the world from 1993 to 2043.
  • Culture on the Edge. Musicians and their cyberaxes . . . and bloodsport gladiators, decked out with lethal body-mods.
  • Crime and Punishment. Including the vicious Mafia, more powerful than ever, the brutal Chinese Triads, and the 'Traffs, cold-hearted drugrunners from South America.
  • Technology. Cyberwear, guns, grenades, lasers and gyrocs, plus other equipment. Everything a street-op needs to stay one step ahead of the Nerks.
  • The Net. From personal computers to supermainframes to the experimental cyberdecks, this chapter has it all. Plus new attack and defense programs for bold netrunners.

This book also includes maps, tables and lots of new adventure ideas for GURPS Cyberpunk roleplaying.

So come on, dyadooska, get with it. Don't be the only one in the world who hasn't arrived in the One-and-Twenty.

(This is a digital reprint of a GURPS Third Edition product.)

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
