Kitbashing: A New Character Set

The Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit is now available on DriveThruRPG, via the R. Talsorian Games webstore and, quite possibly, at your friendly local game store!

But we aren’t stopping there!

We’re dedicated to bringing you new material to use with the Jumpstart Kit so you can get as much use out of it as possible ahead of the release of the Cyberpunk Red core rulebook. We’ve previously released a packet of pregenerated characters based on the protagonists of the Dark Future Dice podcast from Rocket Adrift as well as a Screamsheets Kit to help you create new screamsheets for your Jumpstart Kit adventures, and an 11×17 battle map of two apartments to use with The Apartment adventure.

Today, we’re introducing a new set of NPCs. This time, we’re giving you the protagonists of the Cyberpunk 2020 campaign run by High Shelf Gaming. These characters made their debut last year and have been brought back for a 25 years later sequel campaign currently being played!

In the High Shelf Gaming character packet for the Cyberpunk Red Jumpstart Kit you will find:

  • Snitch Rich, a Corp turned Nomad.
  • Tres, a Rockerboy out for revenge on his own family.
  • Doctor Weis, the first MedTech pregen.
  • Soup Kitchen, a Fixer who grew up on the streets and knows them well.

Each character was built using the same system used to design the pregens which came inside the Cyberpunk Jumpstart Kit but with a different mix of skills, gear, and cyberware. You can play them as is, change them up to fit your game, or slot them in as NPCs.

We’ve also included standees of the four characters. Just print them out on cardstock doublesided, cut them out, and they’re ready to rock your battle map. To download the new character packet, click on the link below.

Special thanks to High Shelf Gaming for sharing their characters with us! We’ll be bringing you more free DLC for the Cyberpunk Jumpstart Kit in the future but for now, stay safe on the streets!
