Star Traders RPG v4.7.13



The creation of Star Traders RPG was inspired by classic space operas and sci-fi games such as EVE, Star Trader, Master of Orion, Pirates! and many other classic computer RPGs.

The basis of Star Traders RPG is giving you, the Captain as much character control and customization as possible.  Your path is not set as your Ship and Crew travel the galaxy. The turn-based strategy/role-playing game lets you play a single turn or a thousand turns at time. Start and stop playing on-demand with no obnoxious save points or restores.

The game's complex mechanics features 4 physical attributes, 7 specialized character skills, 8 character classes and 450 different capital space craft.  The capability to customized your craft with 36 different improvements ensure no two ship will be exactly alike. Beyond that, in the Elite edition the Captain can control not only a single ship but in fact customize and dock a small fleet (up to 20 personalized ships.)

 If you see something that needs to be fixed, e-mail Cory or post on the forum. (http://startradersrpg.proboards.com/index.cgi)

  • New Ship: Ridgeback Freighter

Cyber Knights RPG -- Rumors & Conflicts

Status > Politics > Rumors (Cyber Knights RPG v0.8.3)

Cyber Knight RPG has been getting a lot of focused effort lately as Andrew and Cory work on preparing the CK game engine for the upcoming tutorial and story mode releases.

One unrelated, but substantial new feature is the rumors, conflicts and political simulation system. There have been several threads on the game's forum discussing the 24 different Rumors and 6 different Conflicts (http://startradersrpg.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=ckrpgtalk&action=display&thread=2936) and we thought we would take to the blog to discuss some of the background and concepts in more detail.

The goal of the Rumor/Conflict System (R/C System) is to make the New Boston Zone (NBZ) more dynamic, more interesting and more challenging. The R/C System accomplishes this by plugging into the natural storyline of power-struggles in the streets and translates that underlying element of CK into the forefront of the game.

Instead of imagined corporate warfare between Mars and AzTek Global the R/C System makes it much more real for the game's player. Like Star Traders RPG (now available on the iPhone) the character's actions will have a more direct impact on the game.

Running a lot of Data Courier missions between Mars and AzTek? You might trigger a Matrix War conflict between the two Factions. That conflict may last days or weeks, perhaps even longer.

In the new R/C System Conflicts will drive Faction power up or down, depending on how the chips fall in the NBZ. Perhaps Mars will get ahead, perhaps the Matrix war will bring both corporation's networks to their knees.

As the Conflicts develop and spread, the R/C System models the results of these on-going battles in Rumors, both for Zones and for Factions. Perhaps the Matrix War triggers an increase in Matrix Security for all Mars Matrix Hosts. Another possibility is that all the Data Terminals are offline in one or more territories controlled by Mars.

And throughout the game engine, the connections run deep. Matrix Wars drive up prices on hacking and data courier jobs while Data Terminals going offline impact Matrix host network maps and drive down pay data prices. A savvy Cyber Knight will be able to predict the probable impacts of various Conflicts (to an extent) and modify the character's strategy to take advantage of the shifting political winds.

Cyber Knights RPG v0.8.5


Cyber Knights RPG is a cyberpunk RPG set in the far future. The year is 2217 and the world is over.

CEO and corporate power-brokers control the remnants of the world economy and provide the survivors shelter in vast domes that protect the world's few remaining cities.  Protection or prison, these domed cities are the only places on Earth that can safely support human life. Across the shattered surface of our planet, the Global Matrix has been resurrected, reconnecting the scattered cities, criminal organizations and corporations.  The global net’s return has reignited wild fires of conflict between corp, street and gang. The line between man and machine is blurred as cybertech and nanotech become mainstream for the dome's populations.

Nearly unlimited computational power in the form of cheap quantum computing has changed the landscape of corporate espionage and conflict in the 23rd century. A new breed of corporate raider is born -- the Cyber Knight. Equipped with state of the art quantum cryptography the Knight is the only citizen of the dome that can store, transport and deliver critical intelligence, secure files and financial transactions. In demand and in constant danger, the life of the Cyber Knight is fast, short and brutal. A select few will rise above the streets and become elite corporate warriors. Which will you be?

v0.8.5 - 11/25/2012

  • Re-balanced combats in Gang areas
  • 32 new Battle Groups
  • 2 new enemies
  • Improved Small Screen Support
  • Fixed Paydata Crash
  • Inventory Defaults to "Carried"
  • Fixing "Dark City" Errors
  • Fixed Zombie Character Error (HP = -1)
  • Fixes Reported Crashes
  • Balancing Weapon Prices
