Saffron Shadows

Game Info

Saffron Shadows is a game taking place in the Kanto and Johto regions, in the near future - specifically, the year 2099. The world is overpopulated, resources are growing perilously thin, and the gap between the wealthy and the poor grows every day. Crime is brutal and common, and organized crime rings such as Team Rocket and the Blackthorn Syndicate gain increasing amounts of influence.

Government is an open farce, and the region is run by two competing Corporations: Silph Co. and Goldenrod Technologies. Both are so large and wealthy, that the law answers to them rather than the other way around.

Sounds bleak right? Well, it's not so terrible. Oran Berries may cost an arm and a leg now, but communications technology has never been more affordable. Cyberware and advanced robotics are common, and grow increasingly accessible.

The bulk of the action will see the PCs navigating this exciting and often brutal world as they try to make a name for themselves in the trying to make a living as mercenaries known as "Runners" - essentially, professional deniable assets, hired by others for specific less-than-legal missions.

Your PC is either already a novice Runner, or has just been contacted by a prospective client, and is being given the opportunity to become one.
