Hobby chips are a massive growth area among chip manufacturers because many rank and file citizens can just ignore the hard realities of life by becoming an instant expert in the pastime of their choice. From enjoyable games to useful skills to fringe professions, hobbies rarely require the kind of extreme skill that only dedicated education and training can provide. Want to be a competitive billiards player? Create exotic cakes? Or become a bartender overnight for that big corporate party? Just buy a chip and plug it in. After all, who doesn’t need a hobby?
This list is intended for any dark future setting (like Cyberpunk, Shadowrun, Rifts, etc.) where chip technology is common, and inexpensive. This little product gives you dozens of different ways to add a new dimension to nearly anyone in your campaign with just a dice roll. This list can also be used to give characters actual hobbies and skills.
