"Go to the sign of Harvel's Axe, a dubious inn on the edge of the Thieves Quarter, in the City of Greyhawk, and look to your own wrist. If you perceive a bracelet and dangling dice, watch for the next throw in the war between Law and Chaos and be prepared to follow the compelling geas." -Signal

Cybergeneration - Cyberpunk

The first release of Cybergeneration was done as a supplement to Cyberpunk. It dealt with the release of a nano virus that ended up killing a good portion of the adult population due to it's altering the DNA structure of those affected. In those that had not yet reached puberty it had another effect. It gave them superhuman abilities in many cases. So this ended up becoming a mash up of Cyberpunk, post apocalyptic aspects and superhero to some extent. It also exhibited a strong anime influence. In the end it proved somewhat popular to at least the publisher. More on that tomorrow....

From the back of the book:

The final battle for the cyberpunk future.

Now, with amazing powers beyond mere cybertech - abilities that defy known science, a handful of angry juvegangers have Evolved to become the Cybergeneration; a generation born to the Street - raised on danger and deception, leading the battle to win back their world. The ISA is closing in, hunting them down to eliminate or control them. But these kids know the war's just beginning...
