Bloodnet: The Complete Unofficial Players Guide
Version 1.0 (released 4/3/01) by Chris The Gronk


This webpage has been put together as the definitive guide to the Microprose RPG Bloodnet, and this is the first edition of this guide. I beat Bloodnet a few years back and really just forgot about it. I recently uncovered Bloodnet at the bottom of a box, along with all the notes I made while playing it back then. (it had been something of an obsession). In a fit of nostalgia I decided to search all the Internet resources for Bloodnet related stuff, expecting perhaps to discover a cult following, but found only two walkthroughs for Bloodnet (aside from the many, many archived positive reviews, and a few negative ones by people who obviously don't know a good thing when they play it). The two walkthroughs were the official Microprose one, containing a multitude of spelling mistakes and misnamed NPC's and also a modified version of this, by a Belgian gentlemen, who claimed to have fixed all the mistakes and corrections. These walkthroughs were both good in that they showed the quickest (and therefore least fun) way to beat the game, but bad in that they missed out a lot of the unnessesary things that could be done. With this guide I intend to provide my own modified version of the Microprose official version, but also a guide to the other parts of the game as well. Much of this will come from my own notes made while playing the game, though I have replayed it again since finding it to refresh my memory. This guide is not designed to replace the manual either, so I haven't included complete weapon and armour lists, merely a look at those I find most useful; thus helping combat piracy. The only other thing I really need to mention here is that this is based on the version released in the U.K. (a small group of islands off of Europe :-) and may have been modified to fit with the games ratings system - the game was clasified as an 18 over here (though readily available to 13 year olds like myself), though frankly I think the game could have got the rating merely for the inclusion of Kate Olgathistle.

Obviously the guide is quite old as it lists a Bulliten Board System contact number - which have been very much out of fashion since about 1997 - These days I would suggest trying . This Credit applies obviously just to the guide, and so all referenced parts of the Bloodnet product are also Copyright to MicroProse, Inc. and Spectrum Holybyte, Inc. and any parent companies that they may have been aquired by since 1994. I have not actually got permission to include the Microprose walkthrough in any form as part of this guide, and I will remove it if Microprose requests that I do so. The Manuel for Bloodnet states:

No one may copy, photocopy, reproduce, translate this manual or reduce it to machine readable form, in whole or in part, without prior written consent of MicroProse limited.

It occurs to me that copying out the copyright warning is probably a violation of this, but as with all other parts of the guide I am willing to remove it from this site if the Copyright holder so requests. Basically I'm not looking to get sued for loosing Microprose earnings, and I believe a guide such as this could not do that. (yeah, I know it seems egotistic to consider the possibility, but you have to be careful these days). The opinions expressed upon this site are not those of Microprose or their associates, (except possibly about it being a good game), but mine only.

1.1 My Credits and contact information.

All parts of this guide that aren't copyright to Microprose are copyright to me, Chris Haynes aka Gronk, I've worked quite hard on this and I would be pretty pissed off (though frankly unable to do anything about it) if someone just lifted it from my website and put it on their own without at least crediting me, and even more so if they claimed it was their work.When I first got onto the internet I did something similar (didn't claim it was mine though) which I removed from my site fairly quickly as I did actually realise how irritating I was being. If you want a Bloodnet guide on your site get the official Microprose guide like I did (its on at least one still active and rusting BBS. Really. Just listen for the creak of obsolete technology :-). I know it seems a little hypocritical to say "I don't like copying," and then to say copy theirs, but the I believe that the offical walkthrough was designed to be spread about the internet anyway.
This document should be at the address and so if you find it elsewhere then someone has copied it. Though if someone copies it they would probably just cut this bit out anyway. My main contact email address is , if you with to contact me please put "Bloodnet" in the subject line. Thank you.

1.3 What is Bloodnet?

Bloodnet is "The cyberpunk vampire game;" an old style team-RPG with a point and click interface. The game was critically acclaimed on release in the UK, with high ratings from such popular magazines as PC Gamer. Though now quite old in computer games terms if the player doesn't mind the retro graphics, then it is still highly playable and the storeyline is still very engrossing. The opening sequence shows the game's hero Ransom Stark being lured to the penthouse of Abraham Van Helsing, a vampire, who bites him with the aim of turning him into a vampire. This fails as Stark has been fitted with a neural implant to combat his deterioriating brain condition - Hopkins-Brie syndrome - and the implant is able to slow down the draining of Starks humanity. Stark rushes to the workshop of Deirdrie Tackett - who fitted him with the implant - only to find it smashed up and Tackett missing. The game starts at this point with Stark ready to set out to find a cure for his condition and gain revenge on Van Helsing. To do this he must travel about the game map - a futuristic Manhatten island - and hire various NPCs whose skills are an asset in completing the game. The player thus builds a party of up to six characters including Stark, and can choose everything they wear and arm themselves with. The way to do this is all covered in the manual.

1.4 Bloodnet System Specifications

Computer: IBM, or Fully compatible, with 386 processor or better. 16Mhz+ recommended
System Memory: 2MB RAM, with 800K EMS free
Coventional Memory: 560K of you base RAM must be available
Hard Drive: At least 9MB's free space required (saving games can require a little more).
CD ROM users: MSCDEX 2.1 or higher.
Graphics: VGA Graphics card and monitor, or better.
DOS: MS-DOS version 5.0 or higher required.

Bloodnet will run at normal speed on a PIII-733 with 24x CD-ROM drive, 128MB RAM, running Windows 98 OEM2 operating system. Sound Card is optional as all speech can be shown upon screen. I have found this necessary as my current sound card doesn't seem compatible with Bloodnet, though sound ran fine on my 486DX4 with Soundblaster Pro. The fact that the games still runs acceptably on a system such as this demonstrates the skill of the programming team.

The ORIGINAL version of the above walkthrough was created by Matt Showalter of Microprose. If you wish to compare this with the unmodified version you can email me for one.

Some Extra Walthrough notes: If you find your bloodlust getting too high then bite someone. This walkthrough goes too fast for loss of humanity to be a major issue. Also if you find your party short of maximum then hire people to make up for it, This makes battles easier to deal with, especially as the Walkthrough makes no allowance for resting and healing. Sometimes it is necessary to go to another area to access C-Space. If possible go to an area you need to visit anyway and save on travel time. Also you might want to visit Vince's Munition Emporium to stock up on ammunition and armour from time to time.

2.0 Character Creation.

When you start Bloodnet you have the option for either Manual or Quick character creation. I think it's better to go for Manual as it allows you much greater control over what kind of skills your character is strongest in. After much fiddling I decided it was best to have a character who was a good fighter, as opposed to one who was a good Decker or Jury-rigger. These skills can be hired, but it is necessary that Stark survive all the unavoidable fights in the game (and the avoidable ones :-) and so good fighting skills are necessary. To get a good fighter choose all of the answers that allow for fighting in the general questions section, then try and specialise in a particualar type of weapon in the specific question type. My favourite gun is the Sawn Off Shotgun so I usually try for a high firearms skill. When you have done this you reach the modifiable stats screen. The Stat points shouldn't be used to bolster poor scores. Your best bet is to add them on to your best weapons class, and on to your agility and observations skills. A good agility/observation makes it much easier to kill Vampires in the later game stages, and is especially useful in the endgame sequence. While a good fighter usually has very poor cyberskills, aquiring the patch cords and hireing a good Decker remedies this. The same can be said for Jury-rigging. I always use the same character portrait, although it makes no difference to the game, there is one who slightly resembles 2000AD's Jonny Alpha.

2.1 What makes a Good Party?

(aside from booze, birds and a sound system blasting out Rock music :-) Your party in Bloodnet always includes Ransom Stark, and on occasion it is necessary to have particular NPCs (e.g. Chuck) in your party to complete a section of the game. Aside from this the choice of who you have is entirely up to you. I'd like to suggest that most of the party be made up of Good fighters. These should be skilled in different weapon types as otherwise the party will find their weapon's fire being absorbed by enemies armour. The three NPCs I would recommend for any party are: Elvis, Tempered Steel and Monique St.Claire. This provides a good mix of weapons specialities, very high cyberskills and good agility. Also Dodger, found in central park, makes a good Jury-Rigging\lock picking component for the party (and comes with his own Jury Rigging kit). This, including the occasional necessary NPCs in the party gives you a full group able to handle most things that you come up against in the quests. If you have a full team and someone wants to join but you don't want them yet (for example after giving Chuck the Tackett Associate list) then push "esc" when the choice of who you want to dismiss from the party comes up and then when you do need the NPC just click on them and have the option repeated. This is very useful as if you just say No when an NPC asks if you want them on the party then they sometimes get pissed off and refuse to join on a future occasion. Obviously if your Party isn't full then you don't have the chance to push escape.

3.0 Introduction to the quests in Bloodnet.

Bloodnet is a proudly non-linear game, and the extensive size of it is revealed in the guide to city areas. Since trawling through this guide for a solution is quite time consuming, I have put together some step by step guides to some of the quests, as well as the guide to everything found everywhere in the city, and how to access all city areas.

3.1 Complete guide to all City locations in Bloodnet

This section is so big it has it's own page. This Guide tells you everything about every location.

Kate Olgathistle drops Wych's book. Take it to him for cash reward.

4.0 The Nature of Cyberspace.

Cyberspace is what the World Wide Web has become by 2094. Or at least, it's what the programmers felt the Bulliten Board System might become by 2094. It is accessed as a virtual reality environment by the Data Angels, or Deckers, of 2094 and consists of the General Plane, which can always be accessed and never mapped, and the WELLs, - Whole Earth 'Lectronic Link, named in honour of a Bulliten Board - which are basically futuristic Web Sites (or Bulliten Boards :-). Coversations in Cyberspace can be held just like the city, and your Decking unit has an inventory for any items you might find. There are several NPCs who appear everytime you play Bloodnet, who are generated in a Random order, who exist in Cyberspace. Some of these give you items, some of them give you information, and some even attack you, (alright, so that's a special case). You are never attaced on the General Plane, but sometimes you are snared by a TransTechnicals Data Cage. This is a very bad thing as the Data Cage will delete your Decking unit's memory, and you cannot go and re pick up the deleted items. If you are snared then restart the game from your last save, and save more often next time.

4.1 The Decking Unit

The Manual covers most of the things you need to know about the Decking Unit, so read your Manual first. I just wanted to point out that available memory upgrades are 1TB, 3TB, 4TB, 16TB, 32TB. Also to say that sometimes you need to find and hang on to Essence Chips throughout the game. These can be left in the decking unit Essence Slot without effecting your progress through cyberspace, and swapped as the game needs. The only upgrade for the Looker Chip is the Emerald Looker Chip. This chip can be left in your decking unit after you equip it. Finally, though necessary for one section of the game, the TransTech Security Cloak seems less effective for the rest of Cyberspace than the Level Four Cloak, so if you have a choice use that. Oh yeah, using an Azreal isn't that different to using a Dragon, so if someone wants a Dragon off you then downgrade to an Azreal (long as you have one handy, of course). This is necessary to gain the SomnaVapour for example. If you have a spare Dragon then it doesn't matter.

4.3 The NPCs you meet in Cyberspace

Since you meet most of the NPCs in the General Plane section of cyberspace, I felt it necessary to have an extra section to detail them. There are some who are found in WELLs, so this section should be used with the WELLS guide as a cyberspace equivilent of the city areas guide.

Melissa Van Helsing - Generated in Cyberspace as soon as you have aquired Blessed Soul Blades. Gives Location of Le Phood.

Banks Verbatim - Locked in a Data cage in the WELL "ttheat." see WELL guide for details.
