This is a cyberpunk 2020 setting that is an alternate timeline for CP2020 where a mysterious figure is manipulating the world. This figure has destabilized governments, corporations, and society as a whole. The mysterious figure, known only as the Puppet Master, is using the conflict between the punks and the rest of society towards its own ends.
This is not the typical Cyberpunk World. This one is connected to the World of Tomorrow setting and has many different experiences. This setting has a touch of the supernatural, events that get explained away through the use of cybernetics, biomanipulation and experimental drugs. The question will always remain as to whether this is real or not.
