Version 6.2 - Notorious Spreadsheets

Hello Cyberpunks!

This is a meaty update. Really it probably should have been version 7.0 but it's not cause well... who needs consistent terminology? Not me!

This update touches mostly on special abilities, lots of slight modifications and rewording things. Also a few rules changes to help center the game on the poor vs. rich theme and a spiffy new timeline of events!

Also, I created a bunch of online playbooks with Google Sheets! Hopefully this will make the game easier to play for folks online. I certainly like being able to see everyone's character sheet, and I was getting sick of trying to modify the roll20 Blades in the Dark character sheets to do what I wanted. Feel free to copy these to use in your own games.
