WARNING!
VIOLENCE AND WEIRD SHIT
The fctional world of Unity Underground is a strange, deadly place. Violent
revolutionaries wage war against a totalitarian dictatorship that has enslaved
the worlds populace through technology, propaganda, and mind control.
Drug use, profanity, sexuality, nuclear war, government conspiracies, anarchy,
psychic powers, and human/animal hybridization are all elements of this game.
Some parents may fnd these subjects inappropriate for young readers and
players.

THE WORLD
. . . has lost its soul. Its all fallen under the control of the UNION OF MAN, a totali-
tarian regime ruled by the charismatic president MASON GATE. Gates visionary
leadership has brought incredible progress for humanity, but progress is not with-
out its costs, and the Unions shining cities conceal dark secrets.
There are those who see through the Unions facade and stand up for the truth.
The UNDERGROUND, a clandestine network of rebel operatives, wages a secret
war for the survival of those who the Union deems unsuitable for saving.
It all started about twenty years ago. Decades of overpopulation and ceaseless
war had ravaged the planet. The populace lived in desperate poverty, huddled
in fortifed settlements, fearful of the drug-crazed gangs that now roamed the war-
torn countryside.
During his sixth term in offce, American president Mason Gate devised a plan
that would ease the fears of the people. His scientists had developed the VO-
CATIONAL MODULE, a neural implant that could provide its host with instant
expertise in any vocational feld.
Gate proposed the New Labor Act, which guaranteed work and wage to anyone
who received an implant. Millions of desperate citizens focked to receive the
implant and soon Gate was credited as the savior of the nation.
Gates power grew, and as world leaders gradually bent under his messianic infu-
ence, a new endeavor was proposed: The Union of Man, a unifed world govern-
ment that would put an end to nationalism and warfare.
Many countries rejected this gesture and fought back, igniting a period known as
the UNIFICATION WARS. Countless battles were fought and millions of lives lost,
but in the end Gates infuence and power were too strong and all who opposed
the Union were defeated and forced into exile.
The intervening years have been a crucible of violence and oppression. For those
assimilated into the Union, life is pleasant and full of trivial comforts. For those on
the outside, every day is a battle for survival.
Still, there is hope. Holes are forming in the Unions matrix of control. Resistance
is stirring, and a war for the fate of the planet is under way.

The Mission
Youre a member of the Underground, a ragtag group of guerilla operatives
fghting to bring the Union to its knees and restore freedom to the world.
The Underground operates under a simple code:
FREEDOM: The Underground is a melting pot of political philosophies, but freedom
from the Unions tyranny is the common goal that connects the cells. Members
strive to defend the oppressed and fght for personal and political sovereignty.
JUSTICE: Members of the Underground frown upon unnecessary violence.
Violence against the Union is seen as a necessary means to an end. This is war,
and the Union is the enemy, but the indiscriminate fragging of innocent people is
not compatible with the Underground ethic.
UNITY: The true strength of the Underground comes from each cell working with
the others to form a whole greater than its parts. Members are expected to watch
each others backs, help each other, and stand together against Union domination
regardless of race, sex, or creed.

CHARGEN
Step One: Determine Rank
By default, all characters begin the game as Recruits. Of course, its perfectly
acceptable for the GM to start characters at a higher rank (particularly for one-
shot sessions). Starting at higher ranks changes the overall feel of the game
pretty dramatically.
Note your starting Health, Green, and Defance on your character sheet. Your
character starts the game at full Health. You can choose to spend your starting
Green and Defance or to save them for later.
RECRUIT
Recruits are fresh-faced members of the Underground. They may have specialized
skills and training, but they are more or less like ordinary people in the real world.
Recruit characters must obey the laws of physics just like you and I would and
they are easily downed in combat. To play a recruit character successfully, youll
have to be cautious, clever, and lucky.
MAXIMUM HEALTH: 6 STARTING GREEN: 6 STARTING DEFIANCE: 0
OPERATIVE
Operatives are experienced veterans of the Underground. They are still bound
by realistic laws of physics, but can perform their actions with a bit of heroic fair.
Veteran characters are somewhat more survivable than Recruits, but still fairly
vulnerable.
MAXIMUM HEALTH: 12 STARTING GREEN: 12 STARTING DEFIANCE: 1
HERO
Hero characters are highly experienced badasses whove managed to build a
name for themselves in the Underground. They enjoy a casual relationship with
the laws of physics, leaping great distances, performing crazy wire-fu stunts, and
surviving injuries that would certainly kill someone in real life.
MAXIMUM HEALTH: 24 STARTING GREEN: 24 STARTING DEFIANCE: 3
05
Step Two: Allocate Stats
Assign a 5, a 4, a 3, and a 2 to your characters four stats (Coordination,
Intelligence, Strength, and Willpower). The higher the number assigned to a stat,
the better your chances of success when that stat is called upon for a roll.
COORDINATION
Coordination represents your characters refexes, speed, and manual dexterity. It
is used for actions such as attacking with frearms, jumping between two moving
vehicles, outrunning another character in a foot chase, or dodging out of the
way of an oncoming truck. In combat, Coordination is used to make attacks with
ranged weapons.
INTELLIGENCE
Intelligence represents how smart and perceptive your character is. It is used for
actions such as hacking into a computer system, repairing damage to a vehicle,
or detecting a hidden enemy. Intelligence also determines your characters
maximum number of skills and ability to react quickly in combat.
STRENGTH
Strength represents your characters muscle power, toughness, and ability to
utilize brute force. It is used for actions such as kicking down doors, lifting debris
off an injured friend, or smashing a brick with your head. Strength also determines
the maximum amount of equipment that your character can carry. In combat,
Strength is used to make attacks with melee weapons.
WILLPOWER
Willpower represents your characters inner strength and force of personality. It
is used for actions such as activating psychic powers, telling a convincing lie,
resisting psychic mind control, or persuading the guard at the checkpoint to
let you pass. In combat, your Willpower determines whether you panic when
presented with extreme violence or overwhelming odds.
Step Three: Choose Class and Skills
Choose your class from the descriptions on the following pages (or from those
presented in a future sourcebook). Once youve selected your class, note your
class ability, and choose a number of skills equal to your Intelligence stat.

AWOL
AWOLs are former Union soldiers whove gone rogue and joined the Underground.
Driven by a need to redeem themselves for the questionable actions they
performed in service of the Union, these battle-hardened guerilla fghters employ
their brutal combat training to frag a path to freedom. AWOLs stand as the frst
line of defense against the Unions seemingly insurmountable war machine.

BRAWLER
Brawlers are street fghting name-takers who specialize in pummeling opponents
with their bare damn hands. Many brawlers are accomplished martial artists,
while others gain their skills through a hard knocks crucible of bar brawls and
domestic disputes. They draw upon their massive strength and martial training to

HACKER
Hackers are hipster tech-specialists capable of creating miracles and disasters
out of a laptop, a spanner, and a few caffeinated beverages. They are walking
repositories of obscure and forgotten technical knowledge and seekers of the
ugly truth behind the Unions insidious propaganda. Hackers utilize their talent for
tech to make improvised repairs to the Undergrounds mechanical assets.

Step Four: Generate Traits
Character traits represent prominent elements of your characters personality
and background. All characters have three traits: two character traits and one
faction trait. Using these traits in the portrayal of your character will grant you
extra experience points at the end of each session.
Generate two character traits by rolling d66 twice and consulting the Character
Traits table below. If you choose to keep the randomly generated traits, you
immediately gain a bonus experience point for each one you kept. If youre not
happy with the traits as generated you can choose from the list or create your
own, but you dont get the bonus experience points.
*Re-roll if youre a Tinman.
After youve determined both of your character traits, write down Underground as
your faction trait. This represents your characters dedication to the Underground
code outlined on page 3.

Step Five: Choose VM Status
All Union citizens are implanted with a vocational module (VM), which grants
them instant job training and serves as their offcial source of identifcation. In rare
cases, the brain augmentation inherent in the installation of a vocational module
triggers paranormal psychic abilities in the subject.
Choose whether your character currently has a VM implant and note the decision
on your character sheet. Note: Tinmen never have VM implants.
If you have an implant, it means youre currently a Union citizen. If you dont have
an implant, it means that either youre a native fugee and youve never had one,
or you used to be a citizen and got your implant removed.
Step Six: Roll for Criminal Record
Roll a d6 to determine whether or not your character currently has a criminal
record. On a roll of 1-3, your record is clean. On a roll of 4-6, youve got a criminal
record.
Your record can be important in a variety of situations. If you have a VM implant,
your record (or lack thereof) will show up any time your implant is scanned. Over
the course of the game, the GM may choose to modify your criminal status based
on events in the game (if you are captured and processed, for example).
Step Seven: Purchase Gear
You receive an amount of starting Green based on your Rank. You can choose to
spend this money on items from the black market or save it for later. The cost of
each item is listed in abbreviated terms: G = Green, D = Defance.
The game is designed to start you out hungry (especially at the lower ranks), but
youll fnd that your cells monetary situation will improve greatly once you start
taking on missions, fragging dudes, and looting bodies.

a 1. He rolls again, and gets another 1. He rolls a third time and gets a 3. Steves
character will start the game with two random psychic powers.
