In case you haven't noticed, I'm rather enamoured with Technoir. I have rambled on about the game previously, so I won't bore you with another glowing review. Instead I'm going to tell you that I put together a transmission for the game and you can download it right now for free.

For those unfamiliar with Technoir and its transmissions, let's just say that they are a group of NPCs, Factions, Locations, Objects, Threats and Events that a GM links together to create an adventure. Transmissions are intended for use with Technoir, but aside from some NPC stats everything in the transmission could be used in another science fiction/cyberpunk game without issue.

As you may have surmised from the above image, the title of the transmission is Grotesque and it adds a mutant population and biotech industry to any cyberpunk city you want. I wrote the transmission so that you could plug it into any cities you have dreamed up or created using another transmission. It should work okay even if you don't have another city to plug it into, it just might be a little one dimensional.

Alright, that is all I am going to say about this. Take a gander at the transmission and maybe even give it a play. As always, I appreciate and welcome feedback.

You can download and view Grotesque here.


  1. I've been hearing a lot about technoir recently - since i mentioned that i'm going to be running a campaign using the CP2020 rules. Do you have a link to where a chap could grab a PDF of the core rules?

  2. You can get a PDF of Technoir on DTRPG for $10.

    You might be able to make the game work with just the player's guide, which is a free download on the official website.

  3. Thanks for the links. I think ten bucks - or the Sterling equivalent - is just about manageable. I'll take a look, but since my game starts tomorrow, I think that it'll still be CP2020 for now.

  4. Hey, I looked through all the new options for the RisusOneDayRPGChallenge, and The Pale Forest looks like a hell of a try. Going to do it G+ chat with a friend and his wife this Saturday. I'll let you know how it goes. Cheers!

  5. Thanks for giving it a shot! I would love to hear how it goes.

    I'll be doing a proper post about The Pale Forest later this week now that submissions are closed and I'm allowed to talk about it.
