d100 Gangs for cyberpunk or superheroes

 Got nice interest from players and some one asked me to run as a alternate game to DnD. I might run a ultimate's style version of the marvel universe and let them them pick a official character from comics. Have run 5 sessions now and has even cut into my blogging time. Had lots of new players which is always nice.

This was for my super hero setting but realized this would work for my cyberpunk/carwars/dark-future BRP setting. I have cyberpunk notes somewhere. This took longer than I planned.
