A Dark Future
So I've had an idea about a cyberpunk/dystopian/dark future setting. Probably sparked a bit by my discussions with a kid at work about Akira. I told him to watch the anime, and then lent him my TPB of the manga. Anyways, so I've had some ideas rolling around in my head and so like a I do will the majority of my settings I slapped down an idea list.
Ministry (Particularly the albums "The mind is a terrible thing to taste", "Psalm 69")
Bread and Circuses
High Fuel Prices
Street Fighter Bikes
Clean Corp Area
Tower Block Apartments
This is a bigger list than what I usually put down. But it just kept on flowing.
I see a mash up of modern day Detroit, Flint, Mexico City, and Brazilian Favela's glued together with the Blade Runner Los Angeles, and Akira Neo-Tokyo. Rampant crime, gangs, and drugs. A filthy dark existence. Remnants of a catastrophic war, linger in places, minds, and people.
I am thought to be exiled gentry, a vagabond, a scandalous rogue, a troubadour, armchair tactician, amateur grifter, self taught mechanic, would be author, adventurer, rogue scholar, traveler of strange lands, and an all round near do well.
