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.
