I'm considering getting the corebook, but first I would like to know how feasible would it be to use it to create a campaign after the Unification War. I know Red takes place right after the 4th Corpo War and its Night City is still part of NoCal, but I like the idea of instancing a campaign on an independent NC.

Does the core book allow a campaign like that? Or at least does it provide tools to create something like that?

More specifically, I would like to know whether the gameplay rules and assets can be used to create campaigns that happen later than "The time of the Red". My concern is that the gameplay and rules are restricted to 2045, and couldn't be used on a 2071 setting.

    \$\begingroup\$ Can you specify what tools you think you need? That way it will be easier to answer whether or not the book contain these tools. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ My bad. I expressed myself incorrectly. What I meant was whether I can use the gameplay rules and pre-made gear (and/or gear creating rules, should they exist) from the corebook to create a fair/enjoyable campaign. What I had in mind was creating a campaign in 2071, roughly one year after the end of Unification War. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ This is not really the site for that kind of question. Whether or not a campaign is enjoyable is mainly dependant on the GM. Whether or not a book is suitable for a campaign that you find enjoyable is almost impossible to answer. \$\endgroup\$

    \$\begingroup\$ I think I'm missing the point here. Forget I said "enjoyable". I would like to know whether the rules and pre-made weapons, roles and lifepaths be used to create a campaign in 2071, or are they too strict or era-dependant to be used on different eras. Just like I can't use a Tormenta rulebook to create a DnD campaign, or a Cyberpunk 2020 rulebook to create a 2077 campaign. For example, I don't think creating an Arasaka Exec PC in Night City would be feasible in 2045, while it is in 2077. \$\endgroup\$
