Obey. Consume. Remain silent.
Welcome to 2056.
What, you thought the future was going to be jet packs, world peace, and the cure for cancer? Guess again, pal. When the Architects of the New Flesh took over, they had different ideas – ideas like conformity, stability, and equality at any price.
Sure, there are cool personal fliers: The cops use 'em to keep the public in line. Curing cancer got put on the back burner, 'cause the Buro was more interested in mind control technology. As for world peace, sure, they've got that. Maybe Acapulco had to be burned to the ground, maybe Sri Lanka will never recover from its "pacification," and maybe there's still martial law in the Texas Demilitarized Zone – but the rest of the world is peaceful as the grave.
In the future there's no inequality – because no one's permitted to excel. There's no unemployment – because everyone has a mandatory job. There's no freedom – except the freedom to choose between brands.
Seed of the New Flesh gives you everything you need to fight the good fight in 2056. Want to know about Buro resistance movements? Want to know what new Arcanowave awfulness the CDCA is cooking up? Want to know if "Cats" is still playing on Broadway? From the heights of Buro high tech to the depths of its standard of living – it's all here, waiting for for you, your players, and their duffel bags full of guns.
