Night City

Cyberpunk world, being made even more miserable by the Breve and their corporate flunkies. One of the Pillars of Shadow, effects here can reverberate through a large portion of Shadow. ((Note that this was from my old Cyberpunk Campaign))

Night City - Named due to the constant cloud cover brought on by being surrounded by mountains on three sides. The air quality is poor, on a good day. It rains a lot, and the rain is acidic enough to kill your plants.

Sports are played at McCartney Stadium. The NFL team is the Night City Rangers, the WBL team is the Night City Slammers (World Baseball League) and the Rollerball Team is the Night City Cyberpsychos.

Addison Sansjoi - Mayor of Night City. Figurehead.

Kenji Arasaka - Real Lord of the City. CEO of Arasaka Global Industries.

Dirk Gardner - CEO of High Tech Industries.

Go Gangs - Violent, bizarre gangs who frequently take themes from old television shows. Known gangs: The Archies. Happy Days. The Griffins. The Simpsons. Note that the Griffins and the Simpsons hate each other and will kill each other on sight.

Famous Bands


Imagine the Beatles time ten, with Rage Against the Machine's political leanings and a heavy sound that has its roots in The Sex Pistols, Rush and Guns N Roses and you have an idea what Zen is.

Current lineup.
Stacii Chulainn - Lead Guitar
Chris Sabot - Bass. Tall. Thin. Pale. Legends of his drug use are legendary and possibly true. He is quiet and seems to love nothing other than music. Black hair, pale blue eyes.
Kerry "Kit" Kynda - Drums Short, voluptuous, if Stacii is the brains and Marc the heart of Zen, she is the energy. Never stops moving. Always drinking beer. Blonde, blue eyes.
Marc Tate - Lead Vocals, Rhythm Guitar
Rhea Roland - Keyboards Talks about anything but music. A very good keyboard player, but overshadowed by her peers. Brunette, brown eyes.

Punchout - Band killed a long time ago, their most popular song, Rise Up in the Streets

Their logic is infallible
Their choices unpalatable
Their reasoning is cold as hell
They're killing you or can't you tell

Rise up in the streets
Rise up in the streets
Rise up in the streets
Rise up in the streets

Burn down (burn down) Fuckin' Arasaka
Just like Pearl Harbor climb Mount Niitaka
Didn't we just drop a couple bombs on them 80 years ago? (It's not enough)

They say Arasaka is incrutable
The proof is irrefutable
They say our land's pollutable
They think we are so mutable

Rise up in the streets
Rise up in the streets
Rise up in the streets
Rise up in the streets

Do you like goin' hungry and being homeless
Fuck with the corps, use cyberpsychosis
Don't be a suit
Don't be a poser

Rise up in the streets!!!
