Incoming: HARDWIRED

Been extremely busy with work lately, plus I’m clawing my way to some writing-related deadlines, but I wanted to announce I’ve begun revising our club’s Cyberpunk-themed, cooperative game with a mind to release it commercially. It’s a fast, straightforward game that can be played solo or co-op with friends. HARDWIRED is easy to teach, easy […]

What Darkness Hides – Interlude

THE CATACOMBS OF UMBRA John was unable to attend last night’s session so there was a quick interlude as Sergeant Dobrescu led the rest of the party into the the catacombs beneath the fortress of Ochi Vanat.

More Zone fiction. Part 3

3.  THE NEW TRINITY True to their word, the boys from Vladivostok had brought their own guns.

Hardwired: Asset Retrieval

Cyberpunk Covert Ops Work obligations caused the Cape Cod Wargame Commission to set our current SYMBAROUM campaign aside for the time being. Unfortunate, but bills gotta be paid, deadlines met, contracts honored, and all that other adult stuff. That meant we broke out our Cooperative Cyberpunk Rules, HARDWIRED, for Tuesday night’s game session. With the […]

Dungeon Party and New Characters

DUNGEON PARTY I have this hobby tic, this obsession with skirmish squads, adventuring parties, salvage crews, cyberpunk gangs, shadow-ops teams… I get a kick out of hunting down miniatures, matching aesthetics, regardless of manufacturer, to come up with a cool troop for whatever scenario had fired my imagination.
