Two hundred years in the future… a monolithic economic collapse… mass worldwide poverty and corruption… malevolent mega corporations… an epic struggle for survival… are you ready to walk the Razor’s Edge?
I have gazed into the ones and zeros of the Nexus. The inescapable beauty of the digital beast. But life exists in the spaces between.
How will I be remembered? Did I build great edifices reaching to the sky? Did I feed the hungry and lay tyranny down low? All of these are dreams in the star scape. I brought the sword and nothing more.
In the effervescent glow of the Nexus I have seen the past, present and future unfold before my eyes.
“Cyberspace. A consensual hallucination experienced daily by billions of legitimate operators… A graphic representation of data abstracted from banks of every computer in the human system. Unthinkable complexity. Lines of light ranged in the nonspace of the mind, clusters and constellations of data. Like city lights, receding…”
― William Gibson, Neuromancer
He looked across the blistered skyline through a cloud of fog. Out there was the worst that humanity had to offer: vicious gangers, malevolent syndicate men and the worst of all, grinning mega-corpers who would burn you alive and sell your children into slavery just to cut the next deal.
“Alice in Wonderland, Alice down the rabbit hole, Alice out in Cyberspace, flung along the lines of data, flying across fields of light, the night cities that live only behind her eyes.”
― Melissa Scott, Trouble and Her Friends
The world has lied. It is full of destitute promises. The American dream has become a nightmare.
“The Machinery of Justice will not serve you here – it is slow and cold, and it is theirs, hardware and soft.”

“The more technologically advanced the human species got, the more isolated they seemed to become… humans could spend entire lifetimes engaged in all kinds of activities, without getting any closer to knowing who they really were, inside.”
― Jess C. Scott, The Other Side of Life
“Only the little people suffer at the hands of Justice; the creatures of power slide from under it with a wink and a grin. If you want justice, you will have to claw it from them.”

“…The freedom to unbind yourself from all those paths that have been constructed for you by society and find your own way through the obstacles. The freedom to write your own physics, accepting nobody’s rules of gravity and space but your own.”
― Sam A. Patel, Data Runner
“It was true. Nothing was ever lost. And nothing was ever forgotten, no matter how painful. The city was like a heart that way. She had four chambers, too. She had arteries that led in and out. She kept things moving.”

― Jason Heller, Cyber World: Tales of Humanity’s Tomorrow

What is Dystopia 23 The Razors Edge?

Two hundred years in the future… a monolithic economic collapse… mass worldwide poverty and corruption… malevolent mega corporations… an epic struggle for survival… are you ready to walk the Razor’s Edge?

Dystopia 23 is a spine tingling, nail-biting journey into the near future. Following a catastrophic economic collapse in the early 21st century, humanity has been thrown into disarray. Nations have perished and been reborn in new guises. Poverty is the new normal and people live in massive urban landscapes known as sprawls. Crime is rampant and everyday life is a struggle for survival. Massive megacorporations have corrupted the world with their colossal power and influence. Only you can make a difference, if you have the nerve to walk the razor’s edge.
Dystopia 23 is a role-playing game based in the dark, dystopian, near future. The game utilises an original role-playing system that has been over a decade in development. Each player assumes the role of a character. And each character has a remarkable skill set, rich backstory and set of goals that they wish to achieve. Characters come together to form a mercenary company and then take on a variety of jobs, some legal, some not so legal, in order to achieve their goals. They are a team of specialists but their phenomenal skill sets make them a force to be reckoned with. Will you choose to combat evil megacorporations, bring down criminal syndicates and fight terrorism and injustice or are you just in it for the money? The choice is yours.
