sounds interesting and might be topical. The playtest release mentions dystopian campaigns a few times. I've just come across Uprising
for FATE on Kickstarter.
Dystopian, oppressed worlds are a long-standing part of science fiction. Technology might be only a little ahead of the present day (the more punk aspects of cyberpunk being a common example of the genre) and may not have advanced as far as a more optimistic work might assume for the setting's date. The world may or may not have any fantastic elements, while if it does, they're often integral to the bad situation or the heroes' alienation.
Often, life is cheap, the ruling powers are overwhelming and winning combats isn't a safe assumption, either as a story theme or actually threatening death, capture and severe hardship on a regular basis in play. This post has been edited by uncle_jimbo on Mar 30 2018, 07:11
