Blade Runner RPG Starter Set


This is the Starter Set for the official BLADE RUNNER Roleplaying Game. A neon noir wonderland that will take your breath away, one way or another. An evocative world of conflicts and contrasts that dares to ask the hard questions and investigate the power of empathy, the poison of fear, and the burden of being human during inhumane times. An iconic and unforgiving playground of endless possibilities that picks you up, slaps you in the face, and tells you to wake up.

Time to live. Or time to die.

This starter set contains:

  • An 80-page condensed rulebook.
  • A 56-page full-length Case File for Blade Runners to crack.
  • Four pre-generated characters to play.
  • A huge full color map of Los Angeles in 2037.
  • 26 full-color evidence handouts for the players to pore over, including crime scene photos, data files, documents, maps, and more.
  • A Time Tracker Sheet.
  • 71 custom cards for non-player characters, chase maneuvers and obstacles, and initiative in combat.

CONTENT WARNING: The Blade Runner franchise deals with dark and existential themes, and this roleplaying game is no different. The stories told in this game can be violent, distressing, and raise issues relating to personal morals. This is not a game for children.

The order number printed on the playing cards takes too much space. Not only it is unesthetic, but it overlaps on the name of NPCs. Would it be possible to issue a clean version please?

What’s up with the blank “notes” page for a preview? What I want to know if the PDF is colored printing on black like the print book.

Does anyone know roughly how many sessions the enclosed case is likely to take?

I am interested in this product. However, I think the preview of one page (one that is mostly empty as well) is not very helpful. Maybe this is a glitch/mistake?

Why would I need this, when Cyberpunk 2020-Red exist?

Well, they aren’t the same thing. Bladerunner was something of a forerunner to the Cyberpunk genre, particularly if taken from its literary source. Cyberpunk is a similar ‘dark future’ but has less retro-gothic aspects. Bladerunner is also more focussed on investigative procedurals than Cyberpunk is, and some people prefer that focus.

On that same token, why would I need Cyberpunk Red when Neon City Overdrive or Cy Borg exist? Different flavors aren’t a bad thing.

If you want a more Noir and retro-future vibe then this game brings that tone. I also actually dig how splitting up to cover more ground is an expected part of the system, and that combat is meant to be short, brutal, and saved for the right moments in the story.

Why would I need any other RPG when GURPs exists?

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.
