Cascade is a supplement for The Veil RPG. A cyberpunk roleplaying game Powered by the Apocalypse.
In The Veil, humanity has the technology to perceive both the digital and the physical in a blended, hybridized reality via neurochips that are implanted into almost every denizen of society. This veil that has become the new reality is ubiquitous and pervasive.
Cascade adds a ton of additional content that brings a lot of value to the original game while also working well as a standalone resource for anyone interested in making their own cyberpunk setting.
There are static elements ingrained in Cascade to help solidify any setting you generate in the fiction. This allows for an ideal place to springboard a new game from, or move an existing campaign to. For those who don’t want to generate a new setting, we’ve got you covered: a futuristic Taipei is prepared and ready for you to delve into, along with a diabolical murder mystery inspired by Altered Carbon.
In Cascade you play the protagonists of your own story, where neurochips are used to download and upload the human consciousness into people without a mind occupying them. These “empty” bodies are called Slacks. You play relics of a time gone by, fully digitized minds preserved in neurochips and recently decanted into a new, unfamiliar body. You are a mind imprinted on an out-of-date neurochip and missing the memories that comprised who you are or perhaps, who you used to be.
