    IN A HUNDRED YEARS, HACKING WILL GET YOU KILLED.

    NEUROMANCER
    A CYBERPUNK ROLE PLAYING ADVENTURE

    Nowadays, hacking can get you into trouble. A hundred years from now, it can get you killed.

    Actually, death isn't bad. It's better than being a "Wilson". Of course, any hacker in his right mind would rather be a Wilson than lose all his neurons. So what have you got going for you? About 30 megs on line, several viruses, and a wise-cracking ROM construct tagging along. You're just a cowboy trying to stay a step ahead of the AI's in a world where paranoia's not an illusion, everyone IS trying to flatline you.

    It's party time in Cyberspace.

    * Drawn from the pages of the smash cyberpunk novel "Neuromancer" by William Gibson
    * Skill-based role-playing game by the designers of "The Bard's Tale" and "Wasteland"
    * Original sound track by DEVO
    * Soon to be a major motion picture from Cabana Boy Productions
    * Multiple paths to a successful conclusion

From back of box:
    Nowadays, hacking in somewhere you don't belong can get you in trouble. In a hundred years, it will get you killed...

    You got 30 megs online, three viruses, six icebreakers and a smart-mouth ROM construct riding shotgun.

    As you go hacking in hard on the immense icy-hard crystal of the new database, something stirs within it. Artificial Intelligence?

    "You know," says your ROM construct, "maybe the ice here is so hard not just to keep cowboys like you out, but 'cause they wanta keep something else in."

    And then you remember: They're called AIs 'cause they don't care when they kill you.

    It's party time in Cyberspace.

    • Annoy the characters you meet and they won't forget it - but you can forget asking them for help later on.
