The future has imploded into the present and 2020 is now a grim reality for Night City. The Corporations control the world from their skyscraper fortresses, enforcing their rule with armies of cyborg assassins. On the Street, Boostergangs roam a shattered urban wilderness, killing and looting. The rest of the world is a perpetual party, as fashion-model beautiful techies rub biosculpt jobs with battle armored roadwarriors in the hottest clubs, sleaziest bars and meanest streets this side of the Postholocaust. The Future never looked so bad.
But you can change it. You've got interface plugs in your wrists, weapons in your arms, lasers in your eyes, bio-chip programs screaming in your brain. You're wired in, cyberenhanced and solid state as you can take it to the fatal Edge where only the bravest officers of the Night City PD are willing to go. Everyday you risk your life because you're a CYBERCOP in the worst city in America.
Play cops in the nightmare vision of 1990's RPG Classic, Cyberpunk 2020. We'll use the Key RPG rules but 1990's futuristic style and vision. Shiny and chrome!
Characters will be some of the more cybernetically enhanced on the force. If you ain't a crooked cop in Night City, you're gonna need all the help you can get.
