Danger Gal Dossier Mark 1
Afternoon, choombas! With Black Chrome and Interface RED Volume 2 out and available, we’re ready to start chatting about our next book: Danger Gal Dossier!
What’s Danger Gal Dossier?
The next book in the Cyberpunk RED line, Danger Gal Dossier is a faction and NPC guide, offering new details on seventeen different factions in Night City and sharing biographies and stat blocks for over a hundred NPCs you can plug into your campaign. Plus, you’ll also get guidelines for making your own NPCs at levels from Mook to Boss (including their Hardened variants) and a new mission placing an Edgerunner Crew between Danger Gal and… well… that would be spoiling and some of you might end up playing the job.
The Factions and the Writers
Besides the core Cyberpunk RED team at R. Talsorian Games, a number of skilled and storied writers worked on Danger Gal Dossier with us, helping flesh out the factions and their members. Here’s the writers, in alphabetical order, and what factions they worked on for this book.
Anne is an author and avid gamer who became interested in TTRPGs via a story arc in the Yu-Gi-Oh! manga, and who was delighted to discover that R. Talsorian Games’ system Interlock was also based around d10s. Anne has been writing for R. Talsorian for two years and brings to the writing love of character work to create some vibrant NPCs. When Anne’s not thinking of the innumerable ways Witcher potions can affect a character’s body, you can find Anne trying out new restaurants and hanging out with Piper, a pet cockatiel, in the Pacific Northwest.

Linda still can’t quite believe that people pay her to write but she’s now worked on A Book of Tales, A Tome of Chaos, and Black Chrome for R Talsorian Games, creating a scenario, fiction and lore for their Witcher and Cyberpunk RED lines, along with the most “done” elf on the Continent, for the Siriol’s Handbook DLCs.

She’s been a Games Master longer than some of her players have been breathing, which is nearly as scary as the way she can freak people simply by smiling across the gaming table, real or virtual.
