A R.I.P.E. INVESTMENT
A Pathfinder compatible adventure for 3-4 PCs of 3rd-4th level [hyper score 3].

The Hypercorps 2099 Kickstarter is funding right now and you can see what the cyberpunk superhero modification to your Pathfinder Roleplaying Game has to offer in the suite of free PDFs launching with the project!

Of all the hypercorporations in the world one of the most unique is R.I.P.E., an organic soap and perfume company. Unbeknownst to most these mages and priests use the business as a cover for acquiring rare and esoteric (but organic!) reagents for their spells without raising suspicion. One of their means to do so is by shipping across the Great Lakes and into the harbor of the wasteland that’s become of Cleveland. The operators are hired either to defend one of R.I.P.E.’s freight trucks and deliver it to a secure location, or take it for a shadowy organization with insidious intent (but much better pay).

Whichever they choose, it’s probably not good for Cleveland.

This exciting 17 page adventure module (which is also appropriate for PCs of 6th-7th level) contains:

  • 2 scenarios for how to resolve the plot
  • an armored truck
  • Murderballaz gangers, Ki-Han Hyper Security Guards, and a total of 7 NPCs and creatures
  • 4 different pre-generated PCs enhanced with the Hyper Score system
  • a city street map and warehouse map
  • everything you need to run this riveting adventure set in the wastelands of Cleveland in Hypercorps 2099!

*****

This free teaser for Hypercorps 2099 clocks in at 19 pages, 1 page front cover, 1 page editorial/ToC, 1 page SRD, 1 page advertisement, leaving us with 15 pages of content, so let's take a look, shall we?

This being an adventure-review, the following contains SPOILERS. Potential players may wish to jump to the conclusion.

.

All right, only GMs left? Right! The organic soap corporation R.I.P.E. has a job-offering - and it sounds simple - but your fridge is empty and highjacking the shipment may be the more lucrative job offer - after the deal with Mr. Grey is concluded, a weird bird delivers a counter-offer (on an old piece of paper, included as a hand-out) and, indeed, however the PCs engage the assignment, they will probably see to much - i.e. a nasty, tentacled THING. If they press the matter, things may end up...unpleasantly...

Urban savages will try to get their hands on the shipment in the employ of hyper-otyugh dealer Bazzik, who may or may not prove to be a rather challenging adversary, with multiple lair-specific tricks...and yes, killing the transported monster is another option, though one that can screw their payday. The brief escort-module does feature 4 sample NPCs and 2 pages of nice full-color maps.

Conclusion:

Editing and formatting are very good - I noticed no significant glitches. Layout adheres to Hypercorps 2099's two-column full-color standard with solid full-color artworks. The pdf comes fully bookmarked for your convenience.

This short escort-sidetrek is a great introduction to the over-the-top-flair of Hypercorps 2099 - while the theme may be similar to other cyberpunk games, Hypercorps 2099 is more light-hearted and yes, downright bonkers - and, at least as far as this brief mission is concerned, it works out pretty well. Mike Myler delivers his trademark levity here and the nice player-friendly maps alone make this worth the download in my book - a solid, nice teaser-sidetrek you can complete in about 2 hours, this does manage to interest me further in the setting - and it's FREE, so yeah - a nice, free, sidetrek worth a final verdict of 5 stars - as a FREE supplement, you can't do much wrong here.

Endzeitgeist out.
