The Ronin's Guide to the Sprawl, vol1. Street Cred


The Ronin’s Guide to the Sprawl, volume 1: Street Cred


Gun Metal Games is pleased to announce the release  of Street Cred, the first in a new line of supplements for the Ronin’s Guide to the Sprawl series!

For characters rep (or Street Cred) is  the most important resource they have. As their influence rises, characters meet more people, get better gigs, and access higher-quality gear. Doors which were previously closed open up for them, leading to greater challenges and bigger paydays. But the streets are unforgiving, omae. Characters can lose Influence just as quickly as  they gained it.

 Suddenly all the toys, the Influencers, the most exclusive Night Clubs; They’re gone like a fast‑fading dream. But tomorrow’s another day. The next job might get them back on track, back in the good graces of those who shunned them. It’s a constant tug of war as they try to do their jobs without sacrificing their code.

 Many fail, but if the characters can succeed without losing their soul, they’ll become legends.

 There are many elements that make up the cyberpunk genre, and no single sourcebook can cover them all.  For this reason, we introduce a series of smaller game supplements collectively known as The Ronin’s Guide to the Sprawl. This series takes a look at various aspects of both Interface Zero, and  the cyberpunk genre as a whole.


The first supplement in this series deals with Street Cred. It is designed to help you make the most of your character’s reputation by introducing new ways they can use it during the course of the game.

 In this book you’ll find:

 A revamped reputation system fueled by a simple point-based system that focuses on Role-Play rather than dice rolls.

  • Influence Paths that help you fine tune your character’s personal philosophy, their motivations, their code of conduct, and the kinds of people they are likely to work with.
  • A template system you can use to develop memorable contacts with their own motivations and codes of conduct.
  • Finaly a simple tier based system you can use to track your character’s rise (or fall) in the unforgiving eyes of the streets.

Hi there. Most of my group doesn't like the TAP and all but one of them has the Unplugged Hindrance. Is there some place that expands on what the world is like TAPless in more detail than what is in the core book. If not, this format would be great for laying out how the Unplugged get along in the setting. Thanks.

Oooh. Good idea. I'll do some planning on it for the next supplement: The Global Datanet.

Thanks for your feedback

am a different David - not the author of this great SWADE campaign world.<br /><br />
Hey Iriah.<br /><br />

I simply removed TAP for my current campaign. Players did not like the concept of being "hacked" from range.<br /><br />

Any hacker with a WiFi module could control many "normals" because their TAP does not have a high defence rating.<br /><br />

All hackers are required to use a CyberDeck, plugged into whatever system they want to hack, however they can use a WiFi module to try to "short out" cyberware an opponent may have. This uses the Entangle Power as a template - the target can shake off the effects on a round by round basis.<br /><br />

Hope that gives you an alternative idea.<br /><br />

Hi there different David, lol. Yeah, your approach would have been smarter than trying to work around the TAP. I think next game I'm going to reboot and just leave out the TAP since the majority of my players despise it anyway. Your suggestions were extremely helpful and encouraging.

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.
