Welcome to the dark future!
Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit is a “starter box” introduction to Cyberpunk Red.
An introduction to the newest edition of the beloved Cyberpunk 2020 roleplaying game. Still cyber. Still punk.
It will contain essential rules, world lore, pregenerated characters, an adventure, Screamsheets, dice, and more. Everything needed to play right out of the box for people curious about the game and the world.
The 4th Corporate War’s over and the big dogs have retreated to their corners to lick their wounds. That leaves everyone else to fend for themselves in a shattered world.
And that’s just fine. ‘cause you’ve got interface plugs in your wrists, metal in your limbs, and chips in your skull. You’re wired in, loaded with chrome, and ready to take it to the Edge.
There’s a world full of opportunities out there. Maybe this time you can do more than save yourself. Maybe.
The Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit is the perfect introduction to the newest edition of the classic Cyberpunk tabletop roleplaying game and includes:
* Two booklets, one containing world lore and adventures and the other the essential rules needed to play right out of the box.
* Six pregenerated characters.
* Six Cyberpunk-themed dice from Q Workshop (2 d10s, 4 d6s).
* Maps and standees to help bring the world of Cyberpunk to life!
Cyberpunk Red is a new edition of Cyberpunk, the original tabletop roleplaying game of the Dark Future created by Mike Pondsmith.
Cyberpunk Red will use the classic Interlock system, though, as with any new edition of a TRPG, there will be revisions and updates. While there will be changes to the rules, it should not be too difficult to convert Cyberpunk 2020 material to Cyberpunk Red.
R. Talsorian Games and CD Projekt Red have worked together on a common timeline for the original Cyberpunk (Cyberpunk 2013) to Cyberpunk 2020 to Cyberpunk Red to Cyberpunk 2077. Cyberpunk v3 and Cybergeneration both officially take place in alternate timelines. They are “what if?” scenarios. The Carbon Plague of Cybergeneration did occur in the 2020/Red/2077 timeline but was quickly contained.
Cyberpunk Red takes place between the end of the 4th Corporate War (2022 or so) and 2077. We realize that’s a long stretch of time but aren’t yet ready to say where, specifically, in that time period Red will begin.
* All content is canon with CD Projekt Red’s highly anticipated video game, Cyberpunk 2077.
* Included dice are themed to the game and were designed and manufactured by the renowned crafters at Q Workshop.
