I'm running Technoir
right now (using the LA Sprawl
transmission) and I'm hungry for great color for the game. Share your cyberpunk visions and favorite future-tech discoveries and ideas. What does future-noir Los Angeles look like? What technology predictions are really exciting? Which bits from that (maybe terrible) movie did you like best? Throw out your favorite Gibson-isms, he won't mind!
In the future, LA is still crawling with cars, but most of them are controlled remotely by the the massive traffic management system. Relax and enjoy the ride, with no danger of accident or traffic jams. Of course, every vehicle is tracked and monitored, and moves at an approved pace, so if you have to get somewhere discreetly or quickly, you'd best be ready to drive on the sketchy sub-roads, or hack the traffic control program in your car and get ready to start a helluva chase.
In the future, the Interface will be available even to the implant-free. Forget specs, why not have augmented vision through LED contact lenses
In the future, users will be able to slot software upgrades into all their stuff, including their brain. Need your cyberlegs to be faster? Override the factory settings by slotting in this side-loading upgrade. What's that, you need to learn Kung Fu? We've got you covered.
What else? Feel free to write it up as Technoir gear (with tags) if you like.
I'd be especially interested in seeing ideas for virtual Objects that represent action in the Interface, to balance out all of the physical Objects. I can see someone buying special security intrusion kits (Tags: linked, semi-autonomous, forceful, illegal
Upgrades: fast, experimental, subtle, adaptive
) or maybe personal agents to manage tasks, such as false-identity management (Tags: linked, semi-autonomous, wary, Illegal
Upgrades: resourceful, encrypted
