A downloadable pamphlet RPG

Buy Now$6.00 USD or more

CBR+PNK is a tabletop RPG for one-shot sessions in the cyberpunk genre. Player characters are a team of RUNNERS — mercs, criminals, activists living on the edge and running in the shadows of a gritty, ultraviolent world.

In each game we play an entire new cast of characters making their LAST RUN.


    The GM pamphlet features most of the rules for running the game, a Run generator and easily customizable sample Threats.

    The Player pamphlet (Runner File) is the character sheet itself, containing character creation and other character focused rules (Stress, special actions, recovery, etc).

The game uses a minimalist version of the acclaimed Forged In The Dark system to produce cinematic action.

  • Approaches and Skills instead of Attributes and Actions.

  • No playbooks: characters are differentiated by their combination of approaches, skills and gear.

  • Cyberware is a special kind of Gear activated using a Push action. It can give special permissions, increase Effect or reduce Threat.

  • Glitches: a discernible dice rolled when using certain gears or approaches. It brings additional complications when 1-3 is rolled.

  • Because it's more action oriented, there is no Downtime and Stress is relieved by a special action during the Run.
