2000 Backers! The Economy of 2185
2000 CYBERPUNKS HAVE JOINED THE FIGHT!
We're into the final 7 days of the campaign and have just crossed TWO THOUSAND cyberpunks! You're all awesome!
Now is the time to start sharing the campaign like never before!
We have a limited amount of time left to unlock British Insurgency | London 2185 City Sourcebook, so let everyone know about Carbon 2185 | A Cyberpunk RPG!
Share on your favourite RPG Forums, on Twitter, Facebook, Reddit, MySpace (is that still a thing?), share via your Neurolinks, and get the word out!
It is thanks to all of you that Carbon has done so well, let's go into overdrive!
The Economy of 2185
Fed up of having lacklustre economies in tabletop rpgs, we decided Carbon would be different. We have a much more detailed economy in Carbon 2185 | A Cyberpunk RPG than you'll typically find in a tabletop rpg.
Below is a single page from the economy section of our playtest document (that's right, even our PLAYTEST had a detailed economy). This went into broad strokes detail about the different economy classes in San Francisco in 2185, how much people in these classes earn, how much they spend, how much tax they pay, and how many Wonlongs they have at the end of each month.
Why is this useful? Player Characters don't have jobs, don't have upkeep costs and certainly don't pay taxes!
Ever wonder how much a factory worker can afford to pay cyberpunks? How much you need to bribe a corrupt cop for it to be worth his time? How much money is nothing to somebody Absurdly wealthy?
