Welcome to the New Boston Zone, the last surviving city on the east coast.  The year is 2217 and the world ended a while ago.  Mega-corporations provide the final sanctuaries for humanity in the vast domed cities across our ruined planet.  Isolated for years, as the Global Matrix roars back to life, the world community is once again awakening.

And awakening a new age of competition.  The fires of corporate warfare are being stoked and all eyes are on the limited resources, the remaining metroplexes, and domination of the global technological and arms race.

You will take control of a Cyber Knight and work for these organizations on a need-to-know basis, burning out a living for yourself in this cold war conflict.  You are an urban mercenary–deniable and expendable.  You will assemble and train a team of elite runners, working the most dangerous and critical jobs you can handle, always pressing you limits, always right on the edge.

In the shadows of the metroplex, you will command your team in turn-based tactical combat to deploy skills, equipment and cybernetic implants for maximum effect.  Specialize your team members in stealth, combat or hacking skills. Dominate the mega-corporate landscape with infiltration, battle prowess or be a digital ghost.  Explore a massive persistent world with shops, citizens, contacts, jobs, drops, meetings and danger at every turn.

Welcome to the NBZ, Knights
