Cyberpunk Glossary


I sincerely doubt any of you knew me from Fear the Outside, though if you are reading this, you may have stumbled across it once or twice throughout the years (after all, it was there for like 7-8 years!), but you might have seen the Cyberpunk Glossary there originally.

At the time, it really was one of a kind. There were other Cyberpunk "glossaries," but they were sparse, sad, little things; the entire reason I made this a project is because I really needed a Cyberpunk glossary for gaming and there just wasn't one that met my needs. I don't know how many there are now nor which are any good, but this was among the very first of its kind (specifically dedicated to the game and not just the genre) and I'm sure it's still one of the best - it will be again, anyway.

But if you happened to have seen it back then, it wasn't much to look at. It was what it was: a practical, no-frills drill-down of the terms found in the sourcebooks and cribbed from movies, music, books, etc. It was all one page and though formatted, it didn't look pretty.

I have broken it down into several pages now, as well as bothered to decorate it (make it pretty, Daddy!) and so forth... and it is KILLING ME! I mean, this is a really tough one!

But it is on the way one of these days. I just needed to take a moment off to bitch about it - I started working on it this afternoon and am still on the first page!!! It's such a large project I may actually wait for another big release date... dunno right now, but I sincerely doubt I will wait until next Halloween! We used to do big releases on Halloween and around Christmas, but I just can't do that anymore. Besides, it left basically the entire year without anything new and I don't like that.

Anyway, just stopping by.
