The World Has Gone Mad
It’s been mad for quite a long time, in fact. 200 years ago, cartoon characters came to life and entered the real world. Every single superhero, funny animal, dragon, robot, or margin doodle—all these and more entered into a world that did not want them and could not support them. The chaos was tremendous, the confusion unprecedented; but it was not half as horrid as the order that followed it...
It is the year 2305. It is an age of megacities and corporate countries. Laws can be bought by the highest bidder, and smog chokes cities around the solar system. For the privileged few, it is a playground of excess—one of long lives, cyborg limbs, animal servants, and palatial estates on exotic worlds. Those less fortunate live their entire lives in towers the size of mountains, or toil in mines on distant moons...or are simply born into the gutter and forgotten.
This is the world you were born into. You are a nobody, with a dead-end job and an empty wallet. If you don’t want to die in the grime and the filth, you’re going to have to go a little crazy...and take what you want by any means necessary. You will rob banks, you will deal drugs, you will clash with corporations large and small...and you will get rich or get erased.
