Welcome to the Ghost in the Shell (or "G.i.t.S.") sourcebook! What you will find here is a complete sourcebook for the world of Ghost in the Shell. If you are not familiar with Ghost in the Shell, you should be, as it is one of the great cyberpunk works of the 1990s. The sourcebook is based on data collected from the manga series written by Masamune Shirow, (available from Dark Horse Comics in graphic novel format) the 1995 animated film directed by Mamoru Oshii, and the art book for the Play Station video game. Both the manga and the film are essential to running a successful campaign in the G.i.t.S. setting, as they will lay down the mood and feel that you should try to achieve. Although you need not replay the events in the manga or film (and I don't recommend it), the major characters, who will be introduced as NPCs have been included here. The article will focus on the political factions, world events, setting and new technology of 2029. What else will you need? I would say at the least: the CP 2020 rulebook, Maximum Metal, the Chrome Books and the Pacific Rim sourcebook. You will also need Deric Bernier's Masamune Shirow Conversions.
