In 5150: New Beginnings you’re thrust into a bustling, living urban environment, hundreds of years in the future — or maybe it’s now but just a place far, far away. Your goal is to take your Character, your “Star”, as far as it can go. Acquire wealth, fight crime, commit crimes, live large or fly under the radar, it’s up to you. Want to be an Interplanetary Smuggler or a Bounty Hunter? Yep, you can be that. Want to feel the rush of jacking up your body with the latest technology and running on the edge? Oh yeah baby, this is the place.

5150 Usual Suspects: Who are they exactly?
New Hope City is a large city with nine distinct Areas and lots of residents and visitors. Although we have written and will be writing LOTS of Encounters, sometimes you might just want to create your own.
But what if you want your Story scripted out for you? What if you just want to go from Encounter to Encounter, down the road as I like to call it? That’s where this tool comes in and I highly recommend it. Inside you’ll find a quick and easy way to populate New Hope City and script your Encounters your Story. And I guarantee, they will never be alike. Inside you’ll find:
- Over 130 Character Lists with over 900 Characters you can run into.
- The Lists not only tell you who you’ve run into put what they are doing.
- A quick way to move each Encounter to the next one with the roll of 2d6.
- The nine Areas of New Hope City contain the Who Are They Lists specifically for that Area.
- Need to find someone? We have that covered to with our Where Are They Table.
- Unique Non-Player Characters from Mr. Bad Example (think Grath with Human Attributes), Cyndee (the “perfect” Human), shape changing GAX (what are they again), and many more.
5150 Working Grave: Want to be a member of the New Hope City Police Department? We have the job for you!
Welcome to the Graveyard shift or the “Grave” as we call it. For us it’s midnight to 0800 hours. The handbook says…
“The Graveyard shift took its name from the spookiness of working the ghostly hours after midnight, perhaps in a nearly deserted factory with only a skeletal crew on duty.”
I can’t tell you much about factory work, but I’ll agree the Grave can be pretty damn spooky. At this time of night, you’ll be meeting the worse of “humanity” and assorted Aliens that happen to be “out and about”.
What kind? I’m talking Xeogs, Zhuh-Zhuhs, Hishen, Razors and Grath at least. And that’s not even mentioning the “metal-heads” that as soon tear your arm off as shake your hand.
Heard the old saying “crime doesn’t pay”? Well, they’re wrong, it does. And pretty damn well from what I hear. That’s why there are so many gangs out here. That’s why they all come here to New Hope City. The pay’s good…except for ours. And we’re all that stands between them and the nice LWC – Law-abiding Working Class. Now check the duty roster and head out to your vehicle. “It’s the witching hour baby, and we’re already behind”.
5150 New Hope City Deck
This 90-card deck covers all eleven Areas of New Hope City. Easy to use, the deck generates the Area of the NHC to go to, which Non-Player Character (NPC run by the game mechanics) you need to meet and in what Building it can be found. In addition, you can use it to generate where to go and who you can meet while you’re there. Here’s how we do it:
- Roll 2d6 on the NHC Area Map to see what Area you will go to.
- Draw a card from that Area. This tells you the Building you must go to.
- Roll 2d6 to see which Profession of NPC you have met.
- Roll 2d6 on the Profession Card to see who exactly you have met.
- Flip the card over and roll 1d6. Your NPC party is built.
- Four quick d6 rolls and your adventures are built, no need to consult the rules!
