Two blogs you should check out!

Greetings programs,

If you are waiting for the File Project or the DF 2020 Foums to be up and running again, or waiting on any new information about the upcoming Cyberpunk 2077 game from CDPR, and want something to occupy your time, here are a couple of blogs you should be reading.

The first is The Vircades Project, brainchild of longtime collaborator Richard Balmer, AKA Companero.  Richard is no dick, he is a brilliant young mind with some fantastic ideas going up on this page.  My favorite entries are those on running Cyberpunk in a rural setting, something I do a lot since I am fond of running nomad games.  Comp is one of the main contributors for Interlock Unlimited, as well as Conflict: South America, and is also one of the driving forces behind Run.Dot.Net, an absolutely brilliant new take on netrunning rules for Cyberpunk 2020. You won't be dissapointed, check out Vircades here:

The second blog is the website of a more recent, though still long time friend and collaborator, Seth Skorkowsky.  Seth is the recently published author of the fantastic novel Damoren, and has been working for a while now on helping me with various Interlock Unlimited projects.  Providing invaluable edits and playtesting to the IU Magic system and IU Drug rules, and has been working on both a Fantasy setting and a Call Of Cthulhu based setting for IU, which when complete I hope he will allow me to host on DF 2020.  His blog is full of insight and personal experience, and is as indelibly interesting way to spend your time.  You can find Seth's blog here:

Skinweave ridiculous you say? Now it's a reality!

So in addition having a working neural interface, cybernetic limbs, and even being on the verge of freaking power armor, one of the more oft scoffed at bits of CP2020 tech, the Skinweave, is now a reality... in at least that they have working models....
