Hacking the Matrix


Hacking: Digital Warfare

Your team of Cyber Knights may include characters skilled in Hacking the global Matrix.

Hacking Icons

Hacking the global Matrix requires an understanding of the basic iconography of the virtual world.

System Operations

Hack Network Firewall
The first step of a Matrix hack is to override the network firewall.
Hack Access Layer
The second step of a Matrix hack is to override the host's access protection layer.
Hack System OS
Once the access protection layer has been hacked, the System OS can be taken over.
Hack Network Stack
With control of the System OS a hacker can control and redirect the System's connections to the Matrix and other Hosts. The Network Stack can be accessed multiple times to redirect the connection between a group of Hosts.
Connect to Host
A hacker can use the Network Stack to move between Hosts. Once the Network Stack has been pointed at a valid Host, the Connect icon will appear.
Disconnect from Host
At any point during Matrix access, the user can disconnect. Hackers will try to disconnect without leaving behind a physical location or data trail.
Locate Paydata
Search through the System's folders and files looking for valuable data that could be sold on the open market.
Download Paydata
Retrieve selected data segments from the System.

User Apps

Run Decoy
Before hacking the System OS, a Hacker can launch a Decopy application to confuse Track and Trace threads.

Experience: Character Advancement

Your team of Cyber Knights gains experience (XP) while navigating the NBZ, dodging the law, completing contracts, hacking the Global Matrix, and fighting for their survival. Experience will train your gun hand, sharpen your reflexes, harden your body, sharpen your mind, and hone your skills. Experience is the currency of character advancement.

The Economics of Trading RPG Games

The Trading RPG is a game which includes as the primary or central mechanic a system of trading, selling or bartering goods.

The player takes on the role of one of the parties in a trade. In a role playing trading game (compared to a nation building game) the player usually takes on the role of the smaller and more mobile member of the trade.

The player is a merchant, traveler or cargo hauler who makes a profit moving, order or hording goods. While many computer role playing games (RPG) include the mechanics necessary for buying and selling a large variety of goods, items and gear they are not trading RPG games.

In most trading RPG games the positive elements of an item is primarily the profit the player receives from selling or trading it. Star Traders RPG includes several minor deviations from this rule but for the most part, the cargo items the player takes on exist for the sole purpose of trade. A common exception (and one made by Star Traders RPG) is for fuel or rations (Water-Fuel in ST.)

For me, as a player, the rpg trading game is defined by early 1990 classics like HyperSpeed, Elite Plus, Escape Velocity and Uncharted Waters. I happily mixed pirate and space trading games, enjoying both genres for different reasons.

Trading RPG games mix exciting elements from both the role playing game and the pure economic game. Your character might become fantastically rich or might end up a dirt poor spice farmer on a fringe world. The game play is not only about the profits and the trades but about the highs and the lows of your character's career.


Star Traders RPG v5.0.37 Released

The newest release of our space trader, Star Traders RPG, has been released to Google Play. Popular with fans of Elite and Master of Orion, Star Traders RPG continues to evolve and receive active developer support and on-going enhancement two years after it was first released.
