Fragging Unicorns has put live their rules for those wanting to dive into Gangs Of The Undercity, their Cyberpunk skirmish wargame. There are options to pick up the full Core Rules and also a Free Version which allows you to get a feel for the game.

Rulebook - Gangs Of The Undercity

Rulebook // Gangs Of The Undercity

The free version of the rules gives you access too..

  • Basic Rules, with everything a new player will need to jump into the action.
  • Gang Templates, Rules for playing as one of the 12 most influential gangs.
  • Gang Creation, with rules to make your own distinct gang in Neo Babylon’s Undercity.
  • Solo Mode Play, so you have rules to play the game, even when there isn’t anyone else available.
  • 10 Scenarios, giving you unlimited playability and depth of experience.
  • Sample Gang Lists, premade lists for both the Flaming Skulls and the Valkyrs to get you into the action as soon as possible.

...so, pretty much everything that you'd need to give the game a go and test it out with your group. I like that it also features the solo rules as standard and comes with those pre-made gangs so you can just dive right in.

The full version of the game also comes with...

  • Introduction to the World of Neo Babylon, with tales of how the world diverged from our own, how Neo Babylon came to be, and what life is like in the Undercity.
  • Full Color, the full version brings the rulebook to life in stunning colour, with beautiful art and illustrations to whet your appetite to play in this world.
  • The Drakaina Letters, letters written by a former gang boss to each of the 12 gangs, urging them to unity, giving a flavour for each gang, and contextualizing how things went so wrong and ended up in open warfare.
  • Campaign Play, for when you want to add more RPG elements to your games. Every choice in every game is meaningful in wars fought over many battles, with turf changing hands and destinies being shaped.
  • Freebooters, who are off-beat or flavorful characters you can recruit into your gang alongside the die-hards.So leap forward, brave adventurer! The stars await you, and the wild glories of an untamed sky!

...allowing you to dive into the fluff and background of Neo Babylon and much more. As you'll have also noted, the free rulebook is black and white whilst the full core rules will come in colour. With all the fancy artwork and such in the book, that does sound worth it.

In essence, this means that you can pick up the free rules and try out some one-off games and then if you like the game, you can graduate to the full rules and start diving into campaigns! If you're interested in the game, you can check out some of our early Let's Plays we posted last year.
