The streets are abuzz with the news: famous entertainer Vanessa Shard was murdered in their penthouse apartment. You’ve been booted to the Network with an explicit directive: find their killer, and bring the dirtbag to justice.

Becoming is a period scifi RPG that puts you in the mind of an artificial intelligence living within a simulated city called The Network. The system focuses on discovery and non-combat challenges as the Player Programs develop their identities in response to their successes and failures, and uses a dynamic dice-pool mechanic that allows for a wide range of outcomes for each challenge. The setting pulls inspiration from film noir, Tron, and Transistor by Supergiant Games. Player Programs will be partially pre-built, with finishing touches like personality applied at the table. Players should come prepared to work collaboratively, put their characters in danger, and take an active role in word-building throughout the session.
