Dragoon full 'borg by Grebo-Guru Dragoon full 'borg by Grebo-Guru
This is a full-body conversion which transplants a human brain (and a minimal complement of organs) into a cybernetic body. This illustration was published in one of the Chromebook supplements for RTG's Cyberpunk 2020 game. It is copyright and everything R. Talsorian Games, no infingement, etc.

"Personally they give me the creeps. Its like standing next to a steel encased cannon toting basket case.
Give me your good old-fashioned armed nuclear weapon any day."

one of my favorite game book quotes of all time....

The look and style of the Dragoon was responsible for me adopting Dragoon as my screen name for......well since I first played one of these monsters....lost humanity point just playing the beast.

Hahahahaha! Agreed. I wish I'd written that line, but I must confess I didn't. 

Tsk. I was SO ticked when I saw Maximum Metal -- that book had been written independently of Chromebook 2, so when I found out that ACPAs were SO much tougher than Full 'Borgs I pooped a brick. Heck, ACA were tougher than anything that had even before been published for Cyberpunk. Up until that point, the most formidable thing in Cyberpunk had been the AV-4, with SP40 armor -- the Dragoon was statted out to attain that same numerical pinnacle. For ACPAs (and of course tanks and such) completely emasculate the AV-4 and the Dragoon... Man, that stung.

Ha! Look at me. 20 years later and still griping about this! LOL

I can feel ya on that one man.

It seems the Anything you can do we can do better syndrome hit them full force.

I liked the supplement but would never use it as written in any game I ran...to damn powerful really threw the whole balance off.
I use it in ac couple of military games I run, non cyberpunk more sci-fi...but it's just too damn powerful to fit into the who cyberpunk there.


and 20 years isn't long when someone slaps your baby in the face.

Beautifull Dragoon. I used one on my 4 years CP2020 campaign, though is was equipped with eclipse chamaleon field. It's codename was GORGON and hunted the PCs in the middle of South America jungles. Fun, fast and furious!

Why thank you! (And sorry I deleted your previous comment, it was an accident.) I think giving it a nice, shading coloring would be fun, yeah.
