About the book:
The job of the game master can be daunting. You have a story to tell, and to do so, you must wear many hats. You’re a storyteller, a world builder, a referee and more. While certainly a challenge, your job can be incredibly rewarding. There’s nothing like looking across the game table at a group of players on the edge of their seats waiting to see what happens next; nothing like listening to them chat excitedly about a plan, wonder aloud what might happen next. On the other hand, there’s nothing so nerve-wracking as like the “Dead Air” that comes when you have to constantly look up a particular rule or break the flow of the game to whip up some story element or NPC that is missing from your game. This book is written to help you avoid those types of situations.
In this book you’ll find an array of elements designed to help you create memorable games in the Interface Zero setting.
CHAPTER ONE: BUILDING YOUR CITY
This chapter is all about ways you can create a city. Much of this is accomplished by using trappings to quickly define an area of a city, like suburbs, corporate enclaves, or slums. Similarly, we also look at organizations such as gangs, major corporations, and organized crime rings and give them trappings you can use to define their scope and influence in 2095.
CHAPTER THREE: PLOT POINT CAMPAIGNS
Chapter three takes a deeper look at the three core campaign themes found in Interface Zero 3.0: The Player’s Guide to 2095 and gives you some advice for creating your own. Here, we also introduce our plot point campaigns. Plot point campaigns are a great way to introduce players to the campaign world you have built. Most official Savage Worlds settings have them, and for the first time, Interface Zero 3.0 introduces three plot point campaigns you can play through.
CHAPTER FOUR: SAVAGE TALES
Chapter four expands on the plot point campaigns, providing you with a glut of savage tales you can run over the course of a campaign. Adventure generators for each Plot Point Campaign are also provided.
CHAPTER FIVE: THREATS
As a GM, you need non-player characters, mooks and other interesting creatures and challenges for your players. Chapter five gives you a bunch of npcs and biohorrors and gives you a biohorror generator and a npc generator you can use to make your own creatures and characters.
CHAPTER 6: THE TENDRIL ACCESS PLAGUE
In this chapter, we go into detail on the Tendril Access Plague and its effects on the world. You’ll find information about the plague, the Cyber Information Security Section (CISS), IDentification APPlication Software (IDAPPS), as well as rules for dealing with infection, removing the plague from your TAP, and more.
CHAPTER SEVEN: 2095 REVISITED
Chapter seven takes a deeper look at the world. The Player’s Guide to 2095 provided a wealth of information about the world and the greater solar system. In the GM’s Guide to 2095, we take another look at the setting, this time with an eye for elements and plot hooks you can use to create adventures for your players.
