This is a game of dark futures the likes of William Gibson, Bruce Sterling, Neal Stephenson and other fringe sci-fi writers of the late 20th Century warned us about. Where the streets are always wet and littered from the acid rain; where giant corporate skyscrapers loom over the populace like fingers on a hand reaching up to crush the metropolis. Where suits and street punks trade bullets nightly; where important political decisions are made in the back alleys and bars. Where junkies sell out their own friends to get their fix…and sometimes new body parts.
WYRED (pronounced “Wired”) is a quick and dirty PocketMod role-playing game for adventures and characters in the bleak, cyberpunk style fashion. The rules are built using the WYRM System, as found in games like Warrior, Rogue & Mage and Resolute, Adventurer & Genius. It builds heavily off of their game mechanics but adds in expanded rules for combat, augmentations, and additional tweaks to provide a fast-paced game for gritty, futuristic settings. All that is needed is some pencils, paper, and a six-sided die (written as d6.)
