The Great Metropolis
Industry, Oppression and Corruption
In a world of out-of-control technology where every city chokes on its
own filth, one city showcases the extremes. Smokier than London, more corrupt
than New York, more productive than Detroit and seedier than Amsterdam,
this true megacity supports a population of over 100 million people. Welcome
to The Great Metropolis.
Do you accept the challenge?
It is a city of smoke-charred brick, streets packed with wagons, and
skies black with bloated cargo zeppelins. A city where corrupt officials
grow rich as the workers suffer; a city bled dry by punishing taxes. This
is a city on the edge of chaos -- and a city of hope, where heroes are
forged from the scraps of society. Revolutionaries threaten London's rule,
tab-jammers and Scope riders flood Etherspace from ruined slums, and secret
societies battle the ether demons. Can you rise to become a hero in the
city that is quintessentially Etherscope?
