From the Screamsheets, 4/13/2019

You may be watching your tulips grow, but you can still read From the Screamsheets, our weekly look at R. Talsorian Games news and trivia!

This week, we’ve got a convention in the Ukraine, an update on the upcoming Cyberpunk 2020 LARP, a look at the World of Future Darkness, and, of  course, our weekly trivia contest where someone will win a PDF of their choice!

Let’s dig in.

Mysterious Photograph

Steve and Ben, the geniuses behind the RPG soundscape app Syrinscape visited our offices in Washington this week! Now, the person who writes From the Screamsheets wasn’t there personally, but it is said secret deals were struck. What does it mean for the future? We’re not sure, but they left behind this photograph…

Cyberpunk Comes to the Ukraine

If you happen to be in the city of Uzhgorod in the Ukraine from May 10th thru the 12th, consider stopping by Kosticon. They’ll have workshops, guest speakers, a flea-market, and games! Including, we are told, some fun Cyberpunk 2020 sessions! Check it out, if only for some amazing site design and artwork!

From Cyberpunk in the Past…

Did you know that, back when there was a White Wolf Magazine, they featured an article called The World of Future Darkness which blended Cyberpunk and Vampire the Masquerade? How well did it do the job? Check out the thoughts of The Darker Days podcast as they dive into this artifact of days gone by.

… to Cyberpunk in the Present!

Our partners over at Jackalope LARP Studios have been hard at work on the Cyberpunk 2020 Night City LARP! They’re handing out characters but there are still tickets available! And if you need a little push to attend, just check out the amazing work they’re doing on the set, including this holographic image which will hover above the LARP!

The Trivia Contest!

And, finally, our weekly trivia contest!

At the end of each From the Screamsheets, we ask a trivia question and invite people to send in their answers. From the correct answers received, we randomly pick one winner to receive one currently published R. Talsorian Games PDF of their choice. Last week’s question:

It is called HP in The Witcher TRPG, damage in Cyberpunk 2020, hits in Mekton Zeta, and Health in Castle Falkenstein but what is the damage pool in Teenagers from Outerspace known as?

Answer: Bonk!

This week’s winner is Jerod Mann, who will be receiving a PDF copy of Cyberpunk 2020!

Onto this week’s question!

Cyberpunk 2020 may well be one of the few tabletop RPGs ever to have a licensed soundtrack. What was the name of the album and who was the composer?

If you think you know the answer, fill out the form below! We’ll pick one winner at random from all the correct answers and send them their PDF of choice. Please remember, only PDFs currently for sale can be chosen as a prize.
