I'm a big fan of seemingly incongruous locations in an otherwise wasteland. It has that sinister arctic flavor hidden behind a veil of the commonplace. I can see a Cthulhu mythos short-story starting out this way... Go to Comment
Not really. The worst injuries the Pit deals with are broken limbs, concussions, etc. And "deal with" here means "dump unconscious fighters in the back alley." Discarded limbs and piles of entrails would lead to too many questions. Go to Comment
This is a very solid, very "real" take on the classic pit-under-the-pub. You put in enough detail to make this place solidly imaginable, and I loved the plot hook where you have the different party members fight each other. What a great way to spark a rivalry (or fulfil an existing one)! Go to Comment
nice. I've done little with the USSA, so I have two things for you to think about.
One of the biggest theatres in the Resource Wars with vicious fighting between the Alliance of South American Nations against the United States, and though the wars were 200 years ago there is still animosity.
I was googling images, and sao paolo beach was a suggested search
Also, you can very easily move the city, since the arcologies will have either been built in the city core, or moved a distance away and the new city grown around them while the old city fades into ruins. Go to Comment
1. Nature of location: we need to fix and describe the arcology/arcologies/geofront of Novo Sao Paulo, then set up the favelas around it.
2. Residents: who lives there, are there any groups of interest or note, especially with consideration to the resident AISC of the city, clones, neo-ethnic communities, military and paramilitary organizations, cultural communities and so forth
3. Access to Location: how do you get there, in and out, and around the city? What is the condition of the mass transit system, and is there a spaceport/mass driver present?
4. History: Destruction/Fall of old Sao Paulo, reconstruction during the Second Renaissance, emergence as the financial center of the USSA, and where it is looking down the road Go to Comment
