48 hours to go, for real this time! | Quickstart Guide Announced!

Posted by Dragon Turtle Games (Creator)

I know yesterday we incorrectly said there were under 48 left of the campaign, but this time it's true! Honest! Look at the countdown, less than 48 hours!

 There are under 48 hours left of the campaign and we're more than £14000 over our final stretch goal, and we're still going! You're all awesome! Seriously!

People have been asking for a £125k stretch goal, and we would like to clarify that we had one planned (extra art) but we decided to unlock it early even though we hadn't reached £125k, and bundle it with the art from the 2185 Backer Stretch Goal! Go and check out that update for more details on that!

Quickstart Guide Announced!

Another hot topic among backers: Quickstart Rules!

Tomorrow, as a Valentine's Day gift from us to all of you, we'll be releasing our Carbon 2185 | A Cyberpunk RPG Quickstart Guide!

This basic free guide will let you jump right into Carbon 2185, and will support level 1 characters. It does not include skills or background generation.

What will be included?

Obviously we're not just going to give everything away, but we want to give you as much as possible!

  • 3 Classes
  • 2 Origins
  • 36 Pieces of Equipment
  • 7 Sets of Armor
  • 10 Dangerous Weapons
  • 12 Augmentations
  • 15 Enemy Statblocks

We believe that given what's included in the Quickstart, combined with what we've shown you in these daily updates, and a basic working knowledge of D&D 5e, a cunning and dedicated GM could reasonably extend this Quickstart guide to last well beyond Level 1.

We'll include level one options for the Doc, the Enforcer, and the Hacker classes!

How do I get the Quickstart Rulebook?

Firstly, it's not out until tomorrow, February the 14th, so you can't get it yet!

We would love to send it to each of our backers, but we don't have your contact information until the end of the campaign!

Instead, we'll be emailing it to everyone on our Carbon 2185 | A Cyberpunk RPG mailing list.

To sign up for the mailing list, head to our website and enter your email address in the box there!

Tonight's Livestream? 

Unfortunately for many different reasons, we won't be streaming tonight, but you can still catch last week's episode right here on YouTube if you want to see Carbon 2185 in action!

      Guys! No quickstart yet! Did I did something wrong?

    3. BlakeDrapeta on

      No dice on subscribing here, either. Maybe you guys could just throw it up somewhere for people to download?

      Hey Crunch we are aware of this issue. Emails submitted via the website ARE getting added to the list, but for some reason aren't sending confirmation emails to subscribers

      Hey hey!

      I put my email and hit 'subscribe' but nothing happened. Did it go through? There was nothing to indicate it did.

      Agreed, might convince a few to get in there last minute and throw some money in.
