CBR+PNK is a tabletop RPG for one-shot sessions of cyberpunk action. Player characters are a team of RUNNERS — mercs, criminals, activists living on the edge and running in the shadows of a gritty, ultraviolent world.
In each game we play an entire new cast of characters making their LAST RUN.
The game uses a minimalist version of the acclaimed Forged In The Dark system to produce cinematic action.
Approaches and Skills instead of Attributes and Actions.
No playbooks: characters are differentiated by their combination of approaches, skills and gear.
Cyberware is a special kind of Gear activated using a Push action. It can give special permissions, increase Effect or reduce Threat.
Glitches: a discernible dice rolled when using certain gears or approaches. It brings additional complications when 1-3 is rolled.
Because it's more action oriented, there is no Downtime and Stress is relieved by a special action during the Run.
