Overview


All modern characters are familiar with the urban setting of the near future. They are able to operate modern vehicles, which have reasonably standardized controls. Nearly everyone speaks English, either as a first or second language.

You begin with N$500 ("New Dollars") for personal gear, and you may have access to additional equipment or vehicles through your job.

Skills


Skills below are either in addition to or replacing skills that appear in the Test Drive.


Vehicle Operation - driving modern vehicles and operating mounted weapons under combat conditions. Replaces Driving and Piloting.


Computers - replaces Investigation. You are adept at using search engines and intelligent agents to uncover clues in the net. You can also better direct AIs and robots to perform complex operations with better tolerance of unforeseen circumstances.
Hacking - disarm cybernetic security systems. This is discussed in more details in in Av2Hacking.
Knowledge - modern subjects include AIs, Bureaucracy, Cybernetics, Modern Law, or Weird Science. These can be used as cooperative rolls when dealing with the related subjects.
Tracking - in addition to following someone's tracks, you can find tiny clues and hidden objects or compartments.

Edges


Programmer - you gain +2 to Computers and Hacking rolls.

Cyberdoc - requires d6 Repair and d8 Medicine. Reflects the specialized skills needed to install and fix cyberware, given access to appropriate equipment. You can jury rig a broken cybernetic device to get it back in working order. Success against a target of 4 causes it to be "jury rigged" (-2), each Raise reduces this penalty by 1 to a maximum of +0.

Jobs


By default your character will have some sort of job that offers access to equipment, vehicles, and/or contacts that will help you during the campaign, and provides you with detailed knowledge of some part of the modern world. Examples include:

Police Officer - requires d6 Strength, d6 Shooting, and d4 Knowledge: Law. You have access to police vehicles and weapons while on duty, but special weapons and heavy vehicles require authorization. Criminals will be more reluctant to deal with you if they are aware of your occupation (-2 to Streetwise rolls).

Corporate Agent

Small Business Owner
