“As a cyberpunk, you grab technology by the throat and hang on.” Mike Pondsmith, from Cyberpunk 2020.
Mike Pondsmith, known to cyberpunks everywhere as Maximum Mike, recorded a special message to celebrate the 30th Anniversary of Cyberpunk, “The Game of Roleplaying in the Dark Future”. Here’s today’s present!
Help Us Celebrate With Your Art!
Remember, tomorrow we’ll be posting a special From the Screamsheets highlighting the fanart, fiction, and other creations of cyberpunks around the world. It isn’t too late for you to get your cyberpunk-inspired work to us.
Just send it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
No home rules, adventure modules, or character sheets/GM screens/player cheatsheets, please. We’re showing off the art the game’s inspired this time around.
See Mike Pondsmith Talk Cyberpunk Live and in Person!
If you’re going to be in Seattle on Monday, September 3rd and have a pass for PAX West, you can stop by the Sphinx Theater in the Sheraton at 1:30 local time and see Mike Pondsmith and Johnny Chiodini of Eurogamer discuss the history of cyberpunk as a genre and Cyberpunk as a roleplaying game. We’re going to try to record it but you never know when your equipment will fail, so the best way to catch the conversation is to be there in person! The name of the panel is Mike Pondsmith in Conversation: A History of Cyberpunk. According to the PAX West website, there’s still a few passes left for Monday.
That’s it for today’s present! Its short and its sweet but its a heartfelt one directly from the man who made the game.
Stay safe on the streets!
