The year is 2098. As humanity prepares to move into the 22nd century, it must come to terms with the horrors and splendors of the 21st century. Nuclear war, the creation of digital sentient "life", international identification databases, and the rise of corporations and secret societies behind the scenes have shaped the tide of world events.
Take on the role of a Rat, one of the few whose information is refused from the IBT databases, able to work in the shadows, a deniable asset for the highest bidder. Choose from a variety of origins, backgrounds, and roles as you build a character using a fast and flexible character creation system.
Street Rats uses a core mechanic with a d20 and margins of success and failure, combining rapid single-die play with a hybrid class-based and point-buy system and quick lifepath character creation: you can get ready to play in a matter of minutes!
