Posted by Dragon Turtle Games (Creator)

Day Three, another milestone!

You guys are smashing it! Your continued support both backing and sharing the project has given us some great momentum so far! Keep it up and we'll have to come up with new stretch goals!

Pregenerated Characters

Most TTRPGs don't come with Pregenerated Characters, and neither were we, until now! Carbon 2185 will include 12 pregenerated characters that come complete with brilliant character art.

These characters will be inspired by, but legally distinct from, your favourite cyberpunk characters, so you can easily grab a handful and recreate one of your favourite movies or tv shows.

Characters include, but are not limited to:

SFPD Retirement Office: Patrick Decker

Escaped blonde Synth: Ron Baton

Augmented Security Expert: Aaron Jespen

Former Special Forces Soldier in the wrong body: Hiroshi Horvath

And many more...

      Do they accept kidneys as collateral?

      Augmentation are sold mainly on credit. Repoing Augments is a real career option in 2185

      I love the idea for the augment repo-man. Just the existence of such a character opens up a whole new direction to this already disturbing society. Down on your luck? We finance your upgrades! Just don't miss a payment...

      Now that's more like it! I'll add them to the "For Consideration" list!

      True, though there's not much they could say about the first name. Johnny Mnemonic to Jonathan Anderson should be far enough, even with the parallels in the character. The Anderson even comes from a completely different character (even though it's also from the same genre, based on a work from the same author I think and played by the same actor in its movie adaptation).
      Monique for the bodyguard?

      While I also love the idea, you have to remember that ruthless megacorporation lawyers aren't just in cyberpunk, they are very real, and very scary

      I kinda like the idea of Jonathan Anderson and Mnemonika though. Especially if we add a little background detail to the latter with her choosing that name and still being in the game also as a tribute to former teammates. (That or she could have perfect memory.)

      Great name suggestions, although I suspect they may be a little too close to the source haha

      Names for the two I mentioned....

      We could of course try to be 'smart' and call him John A. Anderson and her Mnemonika. Or we're even 'smarter' and change his gender to the female courier Jane Mnemonic and vice versa to the male bodyguard Johnny. but that's probably a bit too obvious. ;)

      Some more great suggestions! DamagedDice, what names do you think these characters should have?

      DamagedDice on

      Hacker who is looking for the truth behind the MegaCorps control, and wants to expose the world to their plots, schemes, and body count.

      A Freelancer “Recall” know for working in the augments/cybernetic recall business. Practionier of CQB and non-lethal poisonings, as to make sure their target doesn’t damage the goods marked for recall. ((Note I’m trying to stay away from Repo 😝))

      Fast food delivery kid who has a jack for overhearing all the wrong things at the right time. His boss is an info broker.

    13. Dragon Turtle Games 6-time creator on

      Now that's a great one Lukas! Any name suggestions for these two?

      Kung Fury reference, I love it! :D

      What about a high class data-courier for often illicit data, having run across a data package too hot and big for his liking. Maybe also his enhanced bodyguard, who has fallen from her prior elite status after developing symptoms of a chronic disease that the courier is unknowingly carrying the cure for.

    15. Dragon Turtle Games 6-time creator on

      Nice suggestions Matt! We'll definitely use those totally original ideas! I agree that maybe not that last one haha

    16. Matt Drake

      Synth special forces in the employ of a corrupt mega-corp. And maybe also her partner with cybernetic eye replacements.

      Soldier turned riot police who is trying to uncover the secret to prolonging artificially-shortened synth lifespans.

      Punk kid street racer.

      Elite hacker who can send a kung-fu cop back in time to kill Hitler, as well as the cop's dinosaur partner. (Maybe not that one.)

      Martin, that's a great one! It has a certain *element* to it
