NYC2123 RPG

While my wife was asleep in the delivery room and I was up, way too excited/freaked-out to sleep, I spent a few hours creating a couple of character sheets to take my mind off of the impending chaos of labor. The characters and the intended setting are based off a pretty sweet little graphic novel called NYC2123. It’s kind of a gritty cyberpunk themed story about a “nano-mob”, basically a group of skilled criminals for hire. Luckily, the source material is Creative Commons! Check out the inspiration at http://www.nyc2123.com

The characters in the sheets below are different from the ones in the comic, but I tried to give them similar flavor. The art of NYC2123 reminded me of the art in Apocalypse World, so I decided to try my hand at a simple rules system that felt a little like AW. I’m considering whether or not I should create a scenario to go along with the characters, Lady Blackbird style! Here are the pregenerated characters and the supplimentary rules sheet:

    Have you toyed around any more with this? I was kind of interested to see if you had a chance to run it yet, and how it worked out.

    Unfortunately, I have not had a chance to actually playtest these rules. I did a kind of solo adventure for myself using these rules but with a pseudo-fantasy story-line/setting and I think they should work well. Hard to find the kinks by yourself though. Thinking about a quick play by post or something to get some kind of playtesting going.
