Guns Without Master

Cyberpunk 2077, Cyberpunk 2020, Altered Carbon, Shadowrun, and, of course, Bladerunner.

Lazy name, I apologize. I made a cyberpunk hack of Swords Without Master called Guns Without Master, based on my Into the Odd hack, called Blood and Chrome.

This is not an RPG. Well, if you consider FATE an RPG, than this is too. It’s not technically a “game.” More like a “narrative simulator” or a “fiction generator.” It’s like co-writing cyberpunk flash fiction with your buddies.

Swords Without Master uses the adjectives “Jovial” and “Glum” as its descriptive words. I chose to use the nouns “Blood” and “Chrome.” Check the sheet for all of the cool description words and phrases to accompany them.

Here is the character/reference sheet. I don’t have the time to tell you how it works. Maybe next time, sorry. There are some obvious parallels to Swords Without Master, just re-flavored for my game about noir laser detectives in rainy cities.
