Welcome to the near future. With the governments of the world becoming weak figureheads to the massive corporations, Orwellian rule has fallen over the populous. You may be anything here. Any dream is possible, and for a price it can be yours. That's the problem though. Price. Everything costs. Food, a place to live, information. It's all on the market, and you just don't have the credits. Now you live on the edge of the legal world and the dark underworld trying to scratch out a living.
Once again. I'll be using SW for this as well as the sci-fi companion.
The following rules will be in effect for this game:
Race: Because of the advancement of augmentation surgery any race will be available. Most surgeries of this type involve genetic manipulation to the extent that they are irreversible.
Poverty: Everyone is poor. In this economy, it's tough to climb the ladder, and you've fallen off a few rungs. Everyone starts with the Poverty hindrance for free (i.e. you don't get the benefit of having the hindrance)
Blood & Guts Characters can spend Bennies on damage rolls!
Born A Hero During character creation, heroes may ignore the Rank qualifications for Edges. They must still have any other requirements as usual. The usual rules for Rank requirements apply after the character is created.
