Home of the Brave

Selected Option:

A State of Dis-union...

"America's undergone flood, fire, and famine in the last thirty years. Along with Martial Law and one of the longest guerilla wars we've ever fought. There's gangs on the streets, pollution in the air, and the Corps looking down from above. But when the Outside gets too nasty, we still pull together and get the job done."

"Why? 'Cause it's our country—and that's just the way it is."

Home of the Brave is the penultimate sourcebook for the Cyberpunk 2020 system. A detailed examination of the Politics, Society, Economics, and Military of America in the 21st Century. Within these pages, you'll find:

  • The Fall of America—How things got cyberpunk. The Collapse, the Chaos that followed, and the Martial Law that ended it.
  • New America—Work, Education, Religion, Family, Entertainment. How does the average (!) Punk live?
  • The Government—We've got a President... but what does she do?? Who runs things; a look at the uneasy triumvirate: National Government, the Corps, and the Free States.
  • The Armed Forces—From international oppressor, to national savior, to just another job... Their organization, equipment, and bases. Plus, how your character can be "all that he can be."
  • State of the Union—What's still good (and what's truly bad) about this land of ours. The states are grouped into eight Regions, with the hot spots and possible adventure hooks noted.

So jack into that cyberbike and get ready to explore America in the Dark Future. Because in 2020, Freedom really is just another word for Nothing Left to Lose...

A quintessential sourcebook for any edgerunners looking to set their campaigns outside of the usual Night City setting. The year-by-year timeline of America's fall likewise offers opportunities to set adventures at different periods of the collapse, su [...]

Cyberpunk 2020 assumes from the outset that your 'punks are Americans, so an America sourcebook seems a good idea. In some seven chapters it explains just what happened to the US to change it from the world we knew in the early 1990s to the al [...]

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
