From Clockworks2Jump to navigationJump to search
Cyberpunk. Sourcebook for Generic Universal Role-Playing System (GURPS) of Steve Jackson Games of Austin, Texas.
Made famous (for a while) in a raid by the United States Secret Service on 1 March 1990; the Secret Service noted that "Part of the rules in this science fiction, cyberpunk setting for this particular sourcebook described how characters in the game world can break into computers," and the Feds feared real-world folk would use the information to break into real-world computers (69-70). Quoting Kurt Lancaster, "Do Role-Playing Games Promote Crime, Satanism[,] and Suicide, among Players as Critics Claim?" JPC 28.2 (Fall 1994), source for this entry.
