Entromancy is an agile cyberpunk fantasy. It feels more D&D than Shadowrun, despite the obvious parallels.
In my review, I cruelly speculated the hadn’t done enough to get cut through because of the noise in the market (certain big-name cyberpunk games are getting all the attention) but that it was a little gem for experienced groups using the 5e system. I think I was right.
The game has just been given its first pre-written adventure from publisher Nightpath. Entromancy: The Orichite Age – Rise of the Redhats is out now and costs only $0.99. 19-pages for a dollar and that’s a great value.
The download has the same crisp, clean and professional look and layout as the core rules and it’s a spunky little adventure. It also progresses the Entromancy timeline a little.
Despite my comments on the cut-through battle, Geek & Sundry with GM Amy Dallen did stream the game. I think it’s worth a watch.
While the Rise of the Redhats is Entromancy’s first adventure, it is not the first new product for the game universe. Nightpath Publishing has a card game for it.
Hacker Battles is available in both PDF and playing card form from DriveThruRPG.
The 2-player (expandable) game pits hackers against each other’s security protocols. The game’s creator, M. S. Farzan, has an introduction video for it that explains the concept well.
