Shadow of the Lion

A The Sprawl game In the world of SG2048
June, 2018 July, 2020 | Full
Thirty years in the future, the city glows with neon lights, gleaming towers, and chromed headlights. Megacorporations fight for control over every aspect of life -- blood is spilt over what you eat, what you watch, and what you wear. But this is a war kept only to the Shadows. Play as mercenaries from the fringes of society, hired for mysterious missions in this secret war. This, after all, is the only way to strike back at oppression of the megacorps. This is the only way to thrive in the Shadow of the Lion.   SG2048 is a "living campaign", played using a modified version of The Sprawl, by Hamish Cameron. Each game session will add to the setting, changing the Lion City for subsequent missions. Likewise, over the course of the campaign, characters will grow to become legends, or die trying. SG2048 is designed to accommodate both veteran players and new gamers alike. First time gamers are especially welcome. And we are always recruiting!   Current players should register an account on World Anvil, and send me your user name to claim your character pages. You may then enter details about your character, and post a recap of the session.   SG2048 has now concluded. Thank you for all who participated in this wonderful experiment.

  • Singapore
    Singapore remains one of the most important international trade hubs in the world. Through privatization of its government as Temasek.SG, the island nation remains some degree of autonomy against encroaching megacorporations. But with the highly anticipated arrival of the Tian Dao space elevator at the end of 2048, the island nation is set to become a highly contested prize among the megacorporations.
