It is the near future and the world has become crowded, warm and sick. Persistent pandemics and climate change have bankrupted most of the world governments.

Banks and businesses have merged into superentitys with almost limitless power and private armies. The rule of law has reverted to the rule of man.

The only thing separating you from the corpses at the mass graves is your will to live, the few friends you really trust – and your gun.

The climb from the warrens to the upper echelons of power will be long and perilous, but if you make it, YOU will be deciding the fate of our futures!

HexGen RPG Playtest Kit – September 2021

September Playtest Kit update is here!

In this update we revamped the Hacking system. The old system slowed the game down too much and removed players from the action. The new system is based on Ticks, which is a familiar system to many from video games. In this system you accumulate Ticks, which are “units of transfer speed through the firewall” and when you have enough transfer speed you can run software on the Network. The system administrator tries to sever all Ticks and Kick the Hacker out of the system.  We feel that this virtual “whack-a-mole” hacking flows better with the other systems in HexGen.

The hacking changes also changed backgrounds, software abilities and programs.

We also added two new Scenes:

  • The Homestead – where the PC create a home for themselves
  • The Killing – where the PCs must decide the whether someone lives or dies

There is also a fast table for creating unique combat encounters. Happy Hexing!

Next Update in October.
