DarkStreets is a new setting for Hero System. The setting is a revisioning of of many classic cyberpunk tropes, incorporating the current state of technology.
Some key points of differentiation:
- Evalution of cyberware as enabled by nanotechnology
- Effects oriented hacking system
- Integration of NetSpace and RealSpace
- Development of psionics as enabled by nanotechnology and the introduction of Quantum Psionics
- Cinematic incorporation of gene-splicing
- Presentation of the social perception of nanoware, psionics, and splicers
The Hero System is uniquely able to serve all of these points, and present it in a cinematic, larger than life fashion. The action is fast paced, gritty, and yet balances the science and the fiction to cinematic effect.
