From the Intro page

Welcome to a/stateLite V2, the playable preview of a/state, the role-playing game of gothic horror SF. Within these pages, you’ll find all you need to get a flavour of The City, its inhabitants, power groups and technology. A simple but detailed game system allows you to generate interesting characters for hundreds of hours of fascinating gaming in The City.

a/stateLite V2 is divided into six chapters, as follows:

The Precepts
An introduction to the City, its past, its present and possible future. You’ll find essays, lectures and stories giving information on many aspects of city life, from the stinking canals to sports and entertainment.

The Place
6 areas of The City described in detail, with highlighted locations and important local personalities. However, the full version of a/state contains 33 detailed areas of The City, with more to come in the upcoming supplement ‘Avenues & Alleyways’.

The Power
Who controls life in The City? Macrocorporations, religions, criminal syndicates and many others all try to influence the lives of the citizens. Presented here are 6 of the 21 organisations presented in the full version of a/state.

The Procedure
The basic rules system for play in the world of The City. Covering task resolution and man to man combat. The full a/state book will feature rules on poisons, vehicle combat and all the hazards of life in The City.

The Players
The people who make the game really live. Presented here are rules for creating unique characters for play in a/stateLite. The full a/state book will contain an expanded character generation system, with advantages, disadvantages, pre-generated characters and much more.

The Product
From clunky, primitive sparklock pistols to tiny nanoscale dingins, all the variety of technology available is featured here. In the a/state main rule book, you’ll find a substantial expanded selection of weapons, equipment and vehicles.

The full a/state book also contains two additional chapters: The Preface (which contains introductory fiction set in The City) and The Prescription (which contains a full sample adventure and 8 adventure nuggets).
