Eine 5er Runde Hack the Planet - Cyberpunk - forged in the dark.Wichtiger Orga-Hinweis hat geschrieben: Neue Location, neue Hausregeln. Bitte keine Snacks mitbringen, sonst können wir deswegen die Location verlieren. Der Deal ist, dass das Hauscafé für Essen sorgt, bzw, dass wir extern gehen. (Es gibt z.B. eine Pizzeria gleich auf der anderen Straßenseite und einen Supermarkt, zwei Türen weiter.)
Viel Spaß nächste Woche Samstag!
Hack the Planet is a cyberpunk tabletop roleplaying game about clawing power away from those at the top while surviving extreme heavy weather. In the not-so-distant future, our environment and technological growth was impacted by Acts of God: natural disasters
radicalized by climate change effects that wreak havoc on the world.
You play individuals living in Shelter 1, a massive facility for climate refugees, corporations, and the superrich. These days, the Shelter serves only the few corporations who saw these changes coming—and you’ve had enough.
While you seem powerless compared to these corporations, you use technology to forge a new way of life within and around a massive Shelter 1. You pull off daring heists using experimental weapons and armor, install cybernetics into your bodies, and hack the corporate nanites pervasive in your body, food, and culture. You deceive those you don’t trust, betraying them when necessary. You rip apart hurricanes in this cascading, sprawling metropolis.
Play to find out how well you fare against the odds as you leverage your appropriated and modified futuristic technologies, wits, and sordid pasts to take power from a corporate society that will stop at nothing to keep it.
Hack the Planet uses an “engine,” or framework of rules and mechanics, of another game called
Blades in the Dark to pull off this daring way of life—making this game Forged in the Dark.

Das "In the dark" Setting erlaubt einen einfachen Einstieg in die Runde, da das Powerlevel an einen Gruppencharakter gebunden sind und so die Helden von Plot zu Plot wechselbar sind und man nicht hinterher hinkt oder so.
A small list of what has happened so fare down below.
-- The Torque --
Oakley Barns: born in Shelter One in the greenzone, one of the last which entered the world before the birth rates hit ground zero. Being the last of the young once, you went to a school before those got closed for good. Your parents eventually got send away to slavery work, which you learned later mostly mean sentenced to death. Your descent into becoming a glitch, wasn't taking too long when you learned that your kind, the last natively born once, had become collector items of rich hunting parties.
With the classic education you had been in a good position to become an engineer. And so you did, specialized in detonations and sabotage. When it comes to blowing up stuff you are second to none. You love the view of collapsing buildings, of miss firing rotor engines and the sound of a plane falling from the sky. There is collateral for sure, but this world does not own anyone any favors.
Only when you grow older you realized that you are not different to the hunting parties, not different to the once selling your parents to slavery and death. Your old comrades say you got weak, you lost your devils spark. You hope you only got a bit wiser. Changing your own path wasn't easy, nobody wanted to hire you for anything else than mindless destruction. Eventually you got to know the Led Zepplin Crew, they already had a good reputation for having a plan, for actually having a vision beyond the pure struggle for power. Convincing the crew to join wasn't easy, gaining their trust even harder, but you are in. You are now part of the Led Zepplin Crew, you still blow up things, you still sabotage, yet the targets are not random, not selected for pure greed and the fun of watching it all burn.
-- The hacker --
Alex Smith: You joined the hacking ranks early on in your life. Stranded in the greenzone under aged and underemployed your options to make a living could have been written on the back of a business card (if those would still exist). Yet the world had a completely different route for you. You started as a data runner and on your second trip for Mrs. Weave she added a lot of hardware to your brain. Now you felt truly empowered .. running around in the greenzone with a knife to keep thieves of hand and a ton of hardware in your brain. It wasn't too long that your realize maybe that is not all that is on the table. Two years later the fat piece of hardware in your brain was still there. You gained some knowledge of the who is who of the greenzone and learned that Mrs. Weave wasn't known for her charity work. Your situation hadn't improved but also hadn't gotten any worse, but now the brainware started to act on in ways that made you truly regret to had every taken i
n that junk. Around that time you made some deliveries to Nova, a tech with a good reputation around changing any piece of cyberware.
After a few scans Nova, better known on the streets as Nova, remarked: you must be in pain and suffer from massive nightmares. That surely was an understatement. "Who would I have to kill for you, to make it go away?" - Nova was looking puzzled and swiftly added: I can not only make it go away, I can improve it, I can improve you. There is however one catch. "I already told you, give me a name and he or she will drop dead". You need to start thinking the long term game otherwise this city will eat you alive. Once I make the changes you will be a glitch and from there, there is no path back to the world you know. The choice is yours! That does not sound like a bad deal to me, free and enhance me. Nova looked at me again, her eyes didn't look a bit impressed by my words: Lay down and relax, this will not hurt but surely knock you of your feet for a few days. Before you close your eyes and get reborn, this is Virus, he will take you off the grid and help with the enhancements.
Weeks later all pain was gone, at least all the pain from the bad implants. The world has shifted dramatically. You no longer worked for Mrs. Weave, in fact you wouldn't have miss out on an opportunity to harm her organization. Being off the grid, being a glitch offered you a perspective on the world you couldn't have taken in any other way. How the humans have been taking by the mega cooperation's as working slaves, food and never ending blood supply. Not the same view you had before; where it was clear that there was a difference between the rich high end world of those working for the cooperation's and the low working classes and migrants. This wasn't by chance, this was designed, reinforced and violently shaft down the pipes of the humans which lived in what you could only call zoo. You see the scam game around energy, you learned about the sterility that was added to all food produced by the Nourish mega cooperation. Shelter One was kept alive by the fresh blood of the refugees which come in day and night and of which most will become food, for those already there. The energy given those which are here is so little that escaping this massive black hole appears futile for most.
You fight them, on every hour of your life. Them those which reinforce that power structure, which is not only the mega cooperation's but many of the so called fractions which make a living with the never ending stream of poor souls which can't escape this black hole.
