Vampire the Masquerade 2020

Post  Karthusin on Thu Feb 02, 2017 1:33 pm

The Times: This campaign is set in the year 2020 in the near future. Not a whole lot has changed. The world remains rather stale when the geographical map is concerned however life continues to 'improve' in the wealthy country with any sorts of technological advances. The electric car has become a standard within modern society, mobile and computer technologies continue to evolve and robotics are looked upon with high regard and expectations. At the same time, new problems have arisen within society. Various humanitarian issues that were thought to be extinct since the 50s of the 20th century have  become prominent again, with various social groups fighting over who-knows-what on, at times, a political scale.

Ever-growing scarcity of natural resources is becoming a looming threat and economic shifts are present among multiple nations. The destabilized middle east remains as problematic as it always has been, with an underground black market, now run through the dark web and its special currency, making things difficult for just about anybody when national safety is concerned.

The Setting: The setting itself will take part in one of the countries that is not so closely concerned with some of these issues, that being Japan. Remaining a relatively closed-off country when foreign mentality is concerned, running its politics quite strictly, it has largely managed to avoid any problematic social movements and modern day cult-like mentalities that have proven to be an issue in other nations. It remains closely-knit with western society however is evasive of embracing it in full, and as such retains its cultural identity quite prominently. The country has yet to suffer any major financial destabilization and remains in the top of leading economical powers. The average citizen in Japan can be said to live a good, healthy and secure life, and average life span is considered to be quite high.

The city of Tokyo, the huge metropolis, continues to expand into modernity though many of the traditional districts remain. And while the main districts the city was known for remain as they are, new ones have been formed as well...
-- To be expanded on soon.
