PostSubject: Introduction to Shadowrun   Fri Mar 22, 2013 1:33 pm

The Short Version - Your World.

In Downtown (old Seattle proper) the shining skyscrapers and arcologies spin toward the sky, a glittering metropolis. A place of fantastic wealth, testaments to human ingenuity and power in the modern, high-tech world. But the towers and glittering lights are built on rot, secrets and blood. Beyond and below them lies check points, staffed by secret police for government and corporations to protect their employees from both the victims of their crimes and from each other. Alongside them are the crime syndicates and corrupt politicians that keep the wheels of progress turning.

A short distance away you have the Redmond Barrens, crumbling ruins of an urban jungle of the 2010's stretches on for hundreds of miles. The two rounds of VITAS plague, the riots of the Awakening, the tech collapse and the rise of the new nations (and the ensuing refugees) destroyed the city of Redmond. It's long since become a lawless haven for shadow runners, gangs, squatters and the black market. Assuming the stuff the corps dump in the river or air doesn't kill ya. They don't call it Glow City for nothing chummers! This is where things go to disappear.

Technology and science has torn ahead at insane speeds over the last fifty years. The birth of Deckers from the (literally) deadly computer virus that brought down the grid in'29. When the dust cleared, the war for information had vastly accelerated. With the major corps and the new shadow communities of Deckers. Cyber and organic tech, simsense chips, new drugs, and techniques to further pollute or clean the world depending on who has the keys. Ignore the smell - that's progress!

The Awakening in 2012 signaled the formal rebirth of magic into the world, in the chaos and aftermath of the first VITAS plague. Dragons returned with their schemes and plots, and knowledge perhaps of times long past. Magical genetic mutation caused 4 out of 10 people on Earth to turn into Orks, Trolls, Elves and Dwarves – now called the metahumans. And alongside the new peoples, many other scholars and tribal people discovered that their magics now truly worked, with an iota of the effort needed before. Magic is the new science today that we've barely begun to scrape the surface of.

Secession fever hit all through the 30's around the world with new nations appearing everywhere. No continent escapes the break up – but the wheels of the corps keep raking in the nuyen.

Magic and Technology. New nations, ideologies, and races. All have an axe to grind, and money to pay for it.

This is Circa 2060, but the map is essentially the same as it is now and a good reference.

Map of Shadowrun

Better Map of North America

Big Changes of Note:

The Geography of North America. Canada is gone, United States is gone. Seattle is a satellite city of UCAS in semi-hostile territory. Denver is a treaty city under joint rule of the major powers.

California Free State, under it's own, independent rule. With the exception of San Francisco, which is under Japanese imperial rule, and Los Angeles, which was given status as a 'free city' when the CFC military failed to demolish the slums and clean out the crime of the Inferno.

Western Europe largely holds onto it's original form - having common cause against Russia in the Euro-Wars has helped. However many of the former nations are fraught with civil unrest, or have become loose republics of states only united for defense. The German Allied States is one such example.

Timeline of Shadowrun Universe:

1999

  • A 3-month truckers' strike causes food riots in New York.
  • A Seretech truck hauling infectious medical waste on Staten Island is attacked by a mob in the mistaken belief that it carries food. Seretech security forces use lethal force to protect it. Twenty Seretech employees and 200 rioters are killed.
  • The Supreme Court’s Seretech Decision upholds Seretech's
    actions as responsible for saving thousands of lives, rather than
    costing hundreds.
2000

  • Scientists are surprised to discover a distinct new species of ferret in North America. Dubbed the Century Ferret due to the time of discovery, it is later concluded to be a "Spike Baby - a premature awakening.
  • Martin Hunt is elected as the 43rd President of the United States.
2001

  • The Shiawase court decision establishes extraterritoriality for megacorps when a radical eco-group called TerraFirst! attacked a Shiawase nuclear power plant. Though the attack was repelled, the corporation used the incident to convince the Supreme Court that major multinational corporations need the ability to protect themselves. To this end, the Supreme Court granted major companies extraterritoriality.

    • TerraFirst! manages later to acquire evidence that the attack was in fact a setup with the intent to force the courts into granting sovereignty. However, before the group can act on said information, their headquarters are destroyed and key members killed in what is considered to be one of the first shadowruns.
