£75k Stretch Goal: 

The Capital of the World: Manhattan 2185 | City Sourcebook!

There you have it! Our £75k Stretch reward will be a 100 page sourcebook detailing Manhattan, the financial capital of the world in 2185. Nowhere else on Earth is the wealth divide more obvious than in Manhattan.

When we hit this goal, like our free adventure, and The Neon City | Tokyo 2185, The Capital of the World | Manhattan 2185 will be completely free to everyone at every pledge level in PDF form. Softcovers will be available as add-ons at cost. 

More details on this goal WHEN we unlock The Neon City | Tokyo 2185.

Your character’s Origin determines much about how you look, where you grew up, and what you were exposed to during your younger years. Your Origin affects your ability scores, how fast you move, what Features you start with, and many other things.

Every Monday during the campaign we're going to be taking a look at the different Origins in Carbon 2185, starting with the Korporate Kid.

We will highlight one feature from each Origin each week. There are multiple features, and ability score effects with each Origin, but we don't want to spoil any surprises!

      Absolutely Robert. We're going to be offering random generation at every stage of character generation for players who want that old school style

      Any chance these backgrounds will come with random tables for rolling out the basics of the character? Like can I have a table for rolling Corporation I grew up in, job I did there, and augmentation that fits that role? Maybe a table for handler? Was it an AI, Minder, robot, person - and how did that affect my character?

      Of course Lukas! We intend to include a paragraph that briefly details each surrounding area with an overview, similar to how towns and cities are detailed in Princes of the Apocalypse by Wizards of the Coast.

      That should have been "long distance TRAVEL" for my first point there, sorry.

      Could you include at least a small chapter with short descriptions of the surrounding area (Harlem, Bronx, Jersey, etc.)? Because a campaign playing in Manhattan will most likely end up including at least part of it as well (long distance mostly coming in by one of those places, rich people having their private retreats in the Hamptons, heavy industry being somewhere outside the center of town, the working class mostly moving in from the neighbouring communities, sports/entertainment and their locations and all that). It would be good to have at least some idea of what's what for that.

      Hi Courtney!
      The stretch goals will be released as free PDFs to all backers at every pledge level! To get physical copies, they will be available as add-ons at the following prices:
      £10 - Interlinked. Adventure Softcover
      £20 - The Neon City | Tokyo 2185 Sourcebook Softcover
      £20 - The Capital of the World | Manhattan 2185 Sourcebook Softcover
      I am more than confident that we'll smash those stretch goals with the continued support of our backers sharing the project and financially backing it!

      On the note of stretch goals, will they be purchase-able as add-ons or how will we acquire them? In the very likely event that at least the first sourcebook stretch will get hit (and probably the other sourcebook stretch as well), I want to know purchasing options. I'm really excited for this to come out!!

      Hi Lukas, we want to focus purely on Manhattan island because it allows us to go deeper with the lore, and make it more detailed.
      We don't want to go 1 mile wide and 1 inch deep for Carbon. We want a deep, interesting, detailed world.

      So, I guess "Manhattan" would cover not just today's New York sprawl, but at least some New Jersey as well?

      Can't wait to see all this amazing content!

      Thanks Matt! The Korporate Kid Origin gives so many great roleplaying options
