Power Play: An Android Mini-Campaign


Mysterious cybernetic malfunctions are attracting unwanted attention to 8CMod, an advanced, thriving lunar black market cybernetics clinic. 8CMod is more than a problematic unlicensed medical practice, however. Investigators soon try to unravel a web of organized crime, corporate corruption, and ambitious individuals out to seize control of one of Heinlein's standout companies.

Nominated for The Forge Awards Best Adventure, 2020.

This Android mini-campaign gives Player Characters the opportunity to manipulate the future of a specialized organized crime syndicate and an important lunar corporation. Do they expose dirty deals or maximize advantage over them? Do they play the part of kingmaker, or try to seize power and wealth for themselves? No matter their choices, they gain new enemies and allies before things are through.

This mini-campaign is suitable for 4 to 6 moderately experienced Player Characters of a variety of archetypes. It includes new locations to visit, new NPCs, new computer systems to hack, and multiple ways for the PCs to make their own Power Play.

About the Author: Sterling Hershey is a veteran roleplaying game designer for Star Wars Edge of the Empire, Age of Rebellion, Force & Destiny, Genesys, Android: Shadow of the Beanstalk, as well as previous editions of Star Wars RPGs (D6, d20, and Saga Edition), Dungeons & Dragons, and Savage Worlds: The Last Parsec.

Sterling's other Genesys Foundry offerings include Instant Adversaries, an instant NPC generator aid for GMs, Genesys Initiative Tabs, and Systems & Servers, an Android network encounter supplement.

I completed this adventure last night and overall I liked it a lot. The investigations leading up to a climactic social encounter was a fun change of pace from my group's more typical "sneak and shoot" style of play, and I like how the [...]

Very good, well written mini campaign for Shadow of the Beanstalk (could easily be used in almost any cyberpunk setting, really). To me the story of the campaign is exactly what good cyberpunk stories are about. Should be easy, at least for an experien [...]

Original electronic
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.
