In this transhumanist neo-noir vision of the future, the human mind is nothing more than digital code -Digital Human Freight - saved and stored in a Cortical Stack, advanced technology that allows you to "re-sleeve" your entire consciousness into a new body.
In the Official Altered Carbon Role Playing Game, wear any body you can afford, transmit your mind across the cosmos in an instant, and, if you've got the credits and political cachet, you can re-sleeve time and again for centuries, accumulating enough wealth and power over the millennia to become the societal equivalent of an immortal god.
Included inside the Core Rulebook, you'll find:
- Rules to Play Archetypes ranging from Socialites to Soldiers
- Explore the expansive metropolis Bay City in both its Underground, and Atrium world.
- Storytelling focused rules, that help create immense danger inside of combat and intrigue outside combat.
- The means in which to transfer your characters digital consciousness into a new sleeve should they come to a tragic end.
