In the year 2144, the human race had found itself near the point of extinction. Wars, famine, climate change, the near depletion of all natural resources, you name it. Humans have a knack for self destruction. After years of failed attempts, a technological breakthrough had finally been achieved, allowing humans to transfer their consciousness into Cores, synthetic bodies designed to replace their human counterparts. With time running out, this proved to be the only option for humanity’s survival. Those fortunate enough to be put in cryogenic sleep until this breakthrough remained the only survivors to receive the “Transfer”. Thanks to this, the human race survived and even thrived. Hurray! Let’s hope they don’t screw things up again.

Fast forward 200 years later, through this next step in human evolution, the definition of being human has since been revised. Human flesh and bones have been replaced by mechanical parts with infinite makes and models to choose from. Hence, a bustling market economy where one can buy parts to upgrade or repair remains the beating heart of this ecosystem. But in this unforgiving new world, it costs a pretty penny just to stay linked to your core. Hustle in order to survive and often doing dirty jobs is what gets you paid. Eat or be eaten as the saying goes. Do the job, get paid, upgrade your parts, rinse and repeat.

Come join us in this cyberpunk adventure as each new card released will reveal new characters and details of the universe they live in. Welcome to the AFTRMRKT!
