So I guess cyberpunk
is hot again. I don't play those newfangled video games, but all this fanfare made me remember my old Cyberpunk 2020
days, when I was Jael Furoshiki, Japanese/Jewish survivor of of a destroyed South China Sea pirate pack trying to make a living in the Minneapolis Red Zone as a bodyguard/food delivery technician (yes, both a pirate and an ninja). Later she got ported to Interface Zero
, which got rid of some of the anachronisms and C2020's crazy-high fatality rate (there used to be a page dedicated to players' favorite deceased characters, sadly now lost to even the Wayback Machine).
Anyway, one time I made up musical genres my character would listen to--can't find my old character sheets, but this gives you the idea...
