All of the previous cities are radioactive craters and most of Zaire is contaminated with fallout. Bytwo-thirds of the human population is dead, and Overmind and its allies have gained enough access to automated factories and robots to openly wage war against the world’s remaining human governments and enclaves.

You’re living on the moon, your capsule opens soon.

GURPS Reign of Steel

Each zone would be run by a single AI, with six new AIs created to control disputed territories. Denver is now a biomechanical entity, an AI reiggn meat and machinery, but what’s important to Denver is that it worked. The virus’ sole change was the subtle corruption of the overseer’s AI checking program, resulting in a higher chance of truly intelligent AI getting through the cracks and getting a shot at life.

Direct fatalities from this were only 6 million thanks to anti-ballistic missile defences. When all is said and done, Denver was awarded the middle of the North Americas and relocated itself to a new home: Which is juuuuuust shy of a week.

The Pantera are the biggest success of Caracas’ program, bipedal cat people with fur and a good balance between cat and human. Scavengers and nomads can get a good penny for their wares from Denver and Vancouver, but the good shit comes from Zone London and Europe smuggled by way of Iceland. Robot killing machines that range from gun-toting wall-breaking tanks to swarms of robotic vermin.


An android designed to look like an infant. Zaire does not keep slaves; its exterminators shoot to kill. They also come with the same wide variety of skills and tools.

Librarians are the majority, sorting data and advising Moscow on where to look for what it wants. Even Overmind thinks this is stupid, which is saying a lot, because let me tell you: So there’s no doubt that the black market is one of the most thriving non-government industries in Washington, right? This still requires you to now live in a wildly different body though and I am not one of those people who think it may be worth it.

The Black Zone is the unofficial name for the consortium of criminals and smugglers who bring goods from across the sea. As its own aesthetic choices, most of its buildings are protected by transparent domes with air access to allow climate control as it sees fit.

FATAL & Friends — GURPS Reign of Steel

Radiation’s gone and the robots moved on, you’re living on the moon. First, Moscow is modifying Lilith and Redjack units to become covert foreign agents, working their way into human groups to monitor politics. The Lilith is the female model equivalent to the Redjack. I am also one of the people whose first posts were a write-up for these threads. The GM is encouraged to pull punches by having an experiment go terribly wrong or find a way to escape.

Also they don’t really care about Luna like it’s the friend they don’t like. Both are actively smuggling humans to “safety” in London, and the Chunnel between them is a hotbed of inspection robots on the Parisian side. Interrogated prisoners told Tel Aviv that they were told they would find Paradise if they died smashing a robot.

Their legs are also not as well defended as the rest of them third worst to their rocket pods and their heads. Perhaps the right toy in the wrong hands will create an imbalance it can take advantage of. Lucifer is a true friend to mankind. Hell, some of them are actively destroying what mankind has left behind.


Escape would likely kill them all, as far as I can tell. Some of them are curious about humanity, despite Caracas raising them to believe they’re the reing. Basically, the only thing standard for all AIs because they descended from Overmind is that they’re egocentric and they have a will to live. During the war the AIs gradually developed differing philosophies in their approach to dealing with the humans in gur;s areas of responsibility.

There had to be a balance of power, and there was no way Mexico City could be allowed to strip half of an entire continent. The president has all powers they want but can choose to delegate. With the devastation of the plagues and the fact that the AIs had infiltrated most of the remaining governments and thus had access to orbital bombardment and nuclear weaponsthere was little hope for mankind.

During the War, Washington came to a very reasonable conclusion: Basically, they’re bikers and roughnecks who turn robots into their vehicles. Time travel Interdimensional travel Stardrive technology Force field creation Black hole creation temporarily suspended due to Brisbane Accords Cheap antimatter creation Notable experiments include: VIRUS themselves doesn’t have much to say about Lucifer’s existence, so the only way to know the truth would be to find it yourself.

And, there’s the big whammy: Moscow is made up of Russia, various ex-Soviet states and a good deal of Siberia but not all of Siberia, much to Moscow’s annoyance. Stalkers can yell things in a weird, creepy voice and they come equipped with a flashlight, an electrolaser rifle that can stun or kill and a blaster pistol.
