Well, we're back...
For those of you just joining the
adventure, this is a supple-ment/sourcebook for the Solo character role. We're giving you background andhistory (World Situation Report, Future of Force, Destroy All Flesh, I Was There),playing tips (Medically Alert, IPSC Range Review, C.J. O'Reilly), and equipment(Bubba&J.Ts Reviews, New at the Paris Show, The Open Road). This is done in"magazine" format, as if you were reading this in 2020. The yearbook would befaxed or downloaded to you through a subscription service, or you could buy aprintout or download at a dataterm. It's a way of giving your Solo character moredepth that just another "guy-with-a-gun."

New places to play arebeing detailed, such as the East Bloc/USSR and the SouthAm. The best Solos inAmerica are presented for use as supporting cast or deadly enemies. Plus, tipson running low-cyberware games, or "practice" runs for training purposes.
