Rache is back, and he's got your brain!


Rache Bartmoss' Brainware Blowout, subtitled The Hardware and Software compendium for Cyberpunk, is a sourcebook for Cyberpunk 2020 and is written in-character by the famed hacker, Rache Bartmoss. It is one of two guides produced by Bartmoss, the other being the Guide to the Net.

The book aims to be a complete guide to the Netrunner character role and to compliment the other role specific books such as Solo of Fortune, Neotribes and Protect and Serve.

Also included are new rules for the Netrunner class taken from the Netrunner card game, produced by Wizards of the Coast. The new artwork from these cards can also be seen throughout the book, and guidelines on using the card game rules within Cyberpunk are also included.

A large section of the book is dedicated to the various hardware and software seen within the other Sourcebooks, such as the Guide to the Net and the Chromebooks.[1]
