Welcome to the Sci-fi sale! From now through May 16th, this digital title has been marked down by up to 33%! For more values, visit our Sci-fi sale page.

The year is 2095. The world has been ravaged by global warming, subjected to the horrors of nuclear war and natural disaster. In East Asia, the Bear and the Dragon battle for control of the resource-rich continent, and an emergent A.I. known only as Charon has destabilized the whole of Europe, sparking revolution and chaos not seen since the Second World War.

On the North American continent, the North American Coalition has retaken the majority of the United States, waging the Reclamation War and reforming the nation in its image. Only Texas and the walled city of Chicago stand independent of its control. Now, the masses struggle to adapt to draconian laws and avoid the indoctrination centers that have sprung up in every major city.

On a brighter note, perhaps, science has hacked the genome, unlocking the secrets of DNA to facilitate the creation of new breeds of human: genetic hybrids, "human 2.0," and even simulacrum — a slave race grown in amniotic vats and sold on the open market. Cybernetic technology has reached the point where those with the money, and the will to do so, can become living machines. Computer science has grown by leaps and bounds as well. 

Dubbed "Interface Zero" by those who created it, the Tendril Access Processor, or TAP, downloads the Global DataNet and Hyper Reality directly into the minds of billions of users across the solar system, bringing the world an unparalleled level of interconnectivity, and danger. Malware plagues the Deep, however, and hackers manipulate the Tendril Access Processor to upload malicious virii, steal secrets, and even take over the identities of the unwary. 

This is the world in 2095, omae. Let’s hope you survive it.

In this book you’ll find the following:

  • Origins and Campaign Themes
  • Races for Interface Zero 3.0
  • Edges and Hindrances
  • Our revised system for hacking
  • Weapons and equipment, along with rules to create your own!
  • Creation rules for Biotech, Cybertech, Chemtech, Genetech and Nanotech
  • New setting rules
  • A detailed look at the world in 2095 along with an extensive timeline with commentary on life in 2095
  • ...and much more!

This PDF will be layered for easy printing, and it will be indexed and fully bookmarked for ease of navigation.

Is there something wrong with this listing? I see the price of $9.95 that discounted from $19.95 but every time I add it to my cart, it's added at the price of $14.95. I know it's not a US dollars vs. Canadian thing because I buy things off this site all the time and it doesn't do that normally.

That's strange! I've tried dropping the price to a flat 9.95. I'll see if I can fix it. sorry for the incinvenience.

David, unfortunately it doesn't seem to have changed the situation. It still appears as $14.95 when adding it to my cart. I can see it listed at a flat $9.95.

Just to eliminate any misunderstanding on my part, I went back and added "A Spark of Fate" to my cart. I purchased it recently so I have a receipt in my inbox. It was listed as $7.00, entered my cart as $7.00, and appeared on my receipt (from last week), pre-tax at $7.00.

For some reason, this listing is acting differently. I'll reach out to DriveThruRPG as well.

I was able to figure it out. I had to go into my browser site data and manually delete the cookies I had for DriveThruRPG. Upon logging back in, it added to my cart at the correct price.

Phew!

David,

I just wanted to let you know that I support you and yours in everything you do. There are some who no doubt flipped their lids over your statements about real-world politics, both the original statement and your olive branch thereafter, and to them I would say that the anger is definitely misplaced here. To me, nothing says impartiality like sticking to your guns but also admitting you may have fired them in anger.

Now, that aside, onto the product. I have a friend who had this, and I loved it enough to get my own copy even though I technically could have just borrowed theirs when I needed it. I hope the fact that I bought something I could access freely just to show support and appreciation for the material says enough to potential customers who read this down the line. I also loved both previous editions, and while this one strives to do something considerably different it's very much a positive. If I wanted 2.0 with SWADE updates I would just convert throwing, climbing,...See more

Where can I find the changelog for the 12/07/2020 update ("v13_complete_revision")? I see the new version of the PDF and scanned through it quickly, but want to make sure I know where to focus on new changes.
My small group is a few sessions into this setting and we love it! Thanks!

Love the product and can't wait to try it out. I noticed that there were no ex soldiers or Ronin origins in this version (unless I just missed them). Have they not been added to this pdf version or were they removed? Thanks.

We put a soldier origin in the revised version (which should be coming soon), but no ronin.

Thank you for the reply. Just curious about the Ronin, is it coming or are you doing away with the origin (covered by the soldier origin).
Customer avatar
David J October 28, 2020 6:31 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
I'm not sure there's a need for a Ronin Origin (all characters in the Cyberpunks campaign theme are considered Ronin), plus, I don't have any space left in that section. Sorry.
Customer avatar
David J October 29, 2020 2:38 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Actually, I thought about it, and I'll go ahead and create the Ronin Origin.
Customer avatar
November 02, 2020 1:42 pm UTC
PURCHASER
Wow that’s great news! To me the Ronin Origin fits that Street Samurai or Solo type characters from Shadowrun and Cyberpunk. Thanks for taking the time and giving the Ronin another look. I’m building a game as we speak to get my cyberpunk fix and this game is just what I need and the Ronin is my type of guy.

As a burned out SR6 player, I must say I really enjoy your setting / game, my whole group does actually. At first we thought we were going to play SR but with IZ 3.0 rules, but decided to switch completly after reading the settings entry. Are you aiming at October for the final version? I've read a post your did on Reddit about the upcoming changes to Hacking and can't wait to read it up. Is the document "Hacking rewrite" acutally up to date?
Customer avatar
David J September 09, 2020 6:41 pm UTC
PUBLISHER
Hi sir,

Thank you for your kind words. I'm actually re-doing the layout for the Player's Guide as we speak. There were so many revisions (I'm writing a change log as well) that it necessitated a completely new file. I didn't want to risk more errors by simply cutting and pasting in. I hope to have the final version ready very soon, and sent to POD for me proof copy.

The Hacking re-write document is not up to date.

First of all, loved the book. I have been craving for a cyberpunk RPG that brings as to a future in relation to today as opposed to in relation to the 80s.. You nailed it! :)
If I can be picky with the feedback? I have a little thing that bugged me.
You said that the earthquake on the San Andreas fault was 12.3 on an unspecified scale... If you mean the Richter (or the ones derived from it)... a 12.3 earthquake is actually impossible (or very very very unlikely if we want to be scientific haha).. :D I know it's a work of fiction and nothing there is actually real and I get the idea that you wanted it to be "the greatest earthquake ever" but the San Andreas fault is not big enough to support an earthquake of that magnitude. In fact, there are no known faults in the world that would be able to. I loved how most things just flowed as "that's plausible" but for some reason that one fact is what broke my suspension of disbelief. Hahaha

Again, loved the book and preparing...See more

The Character sheet needs a slight revamp due to changes to elements of the game, notably Hacking. I'll try to make sure it's an editable PDF.

Hello! I've got some questions about this.

First off, I'm new to both IZ and Savage Worlds. I picked up both for the current cyberpunk campaign I'm running (custom setting, IZ rules).

I've got some questions.

1. The Bio Horror "Scared-Y-Cat" has an ability called Special: Special Attack. Was this missed in editing or is 'Special Attack' Referencing something in the Core book?
2. What core book is this system ment for? I've picked up SWADE, since it seemed like the most streamlined / well edited one.. It has worked so far, but I am worried since there are so many editions of SW.
3. The Cop Extra has an edge called "Sector Cop", but I swear can't find this anywhere in the book?

Otherwise I really enjoy this product! :)

David J July 21, 2020 1:24 pm UTC

Hiya, sorry for the late response.

This product is designed for SWADE.

The other issues you mentioned are mistakes and are being cleaned up in the errata.

Format
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.
