Shi Yukiro GM Notes

Post  Admin on Sun Jun 23, 2013 12:32 am

These lists are awesome and should let me get my thoughts and ideas straight, as well as letting me add new stuff relatively easily. I'll do the S.Y first because they have the biggest changes due to the Tsunami.

Cities of the Shi Yukiro
Spires Cities - The Spire cities all had Underspires built underneath them. The condition of each is unknown, though their above-ground components are still there; spires were built to survive nuclear weapons and their futuristic equivalents, so they are still standing.

>Uesugi Spire, Around hereish in the Bering Sea. - The above-ground sections of this spire looks heavily damaged and the entire thing is now leaning at a 10 degree angle. It is a miracle of engineering that it did not topple over.

>Takeda Spire, Around here in the Sea of Okhotsk. - An export and manufacturing centre which provided a lot of consumer equipment for the E.I and Ai Jinn markets. The spire was never very popular with the upper classes of society, but it was deeply loved by the more free spirited members of the S.Y and it was a haven for things that would not be accepted in more mainstream S.Y culture. Outlandish fashion styles, inappropriate media content and equipment not considered 'elegant' or honourable by traditional S.Y agents used to pour from this Spire and into the global consciousness. Since the Tsunami it has been locked down, but it was relatively undamaged by it. If there is a resistance movement building amongst the S.Y citizens, it is likely to start here.
Note: The Takada Spire is described in the Eastern Bank, but the description should instead be taken to refer to Kyoto Spire. This is because the GM has taken Takeda Spire in a very different direction, but likes the Eastern Bank description of an S.Y Spire City.

>Kyoto Spire, Kyoto, Japan. - The capital of the Shi Yukiro nation. When Tokyo was made into an Archology many of its residents, businesses and government officials moved here. The Spire city is still alive and well thanks to its relatively isolated and high altitude location.
The Samurai and Ninja groups are both well represented here, though clan Hitori prefers to make its home further away from the centre of attention. Diplomats can still visit this Spire to speak with S.Y officials.
Note: The Takada Spire is described in the Eastern Bank, but the description should instead be taken to refer to Kyoto Spire. This is because the GM has taken Takeda Spire in a very different direction, but likes the Eastern Bank description of an S.Y Spire City.

Archologies - The S.Y were masters of the Archology; self sufficient cities with a limited population and a relatively low density of buildings. Many areas were ornate gardens and the world was rather jealous of them. Being given a home in one of these strictly controlled areas was one of the highest honours a normal citizen could hope to earn.

>Imagawa Archology, Around here in the teraformed ocean that will be SY territory. - This was totally wiped out by the Tsunami. The entire area was washed away and submerged by the wave, which undid many decades of work by the S.Y to create new land. Who knows what ruins and equipment lie beneath the waves in this region?

>Hokkaido Archology, Hokaido, Japan. - The name suggests it is the entire island of Hokkaido, but this is not true. The archology took up only 25% of the island, and primarily in its mountainous centre region. This left room for the open city Sapporo that was present before construction of the archology began. The city was built into the mountains and covered in (mostly) fake and holographic trees and vegetation. This Archology could be seen as the spiritual centre of the Shi Yukiro and contains many universities, museums and cultural sites. It survived the Tsunami, but does not allow visitors. The status of the inhabitants is unknown.

>Tokyo Archology, Tokyo,Japan. - The crown jewel of the S.Y Corporation. An entire city built to capture the asthetic values of medievil Japan. Each district is built in the style of a specific era from the propaganda version of S.Y history and covered in real plants, trees and wildlife. Anyone living in this archology had to strictly adhere to appropriate fashion, behavior and language or face being evicted. It was both an honour and a burden to live in this almost holy place. It was almost completely destroyed by the tsunami. Only time will tell if the S.Y will rebuild their old cultural capital.

Open Cities - S.Y open cities appeared to be almost crime free, clean and propserous. Their surface was not a complete facade, but an awful lot of underground dealings and sub-cultures were hidden by the citizens of even the most secure and respectable neighbourhoods.

>Katsua Open City, Terraformed land going to be hereish around the coast of Japan. - The surface city was completely wiped out by the Tsunami. It was formerly a deep water port for import and export to the WF. The land surrounding the area was washed away, but a low island remains and has a surface entrance to an Underspire.

>Yokohama Open City, Yokohama, Japan, spreading toward Tokyo. - The industrial capital of the S.Y. This city produced almost all of the exported equipment and had numerous R&D facilities. It was incredibly rich relative to other areas of the S.Y and famed for the E.M lenses it made for invisibility fields and laser weapons. The city also had a port for imports and exports. It is now a shadow of its former self, with 65% of its surface buildings demolished. An Underspire now holds the previous residents.

>Osaka Open City, Osaka, Japan. - Home of the Hitori ninja clan and the S.Y war museum showing trophies and equipment from the centuries of Corporate war. This open city survived the Tsunami relatively unscathed thanks to its location and some defensive city walls left behind from before D-Shift weapons made them useless. People from Osaka are famed for being short tempered, informal and fierce in battle. Several martial art schools can be found in this city, though getting access to them since the S.Y shut down their borders is close to imossible.

>Kagoshima Open City, Kagoshima, Japan. - Following the 2341 erruption of the Sakurajima volcano this city was scaled back considerably to reduce damage from future erruptions. In 2410 the volcano was officially 'tamed' and used as a source of geothermal energy by the Corporation and the city again began to grow. The 2414 erruption of the volcano taught the geo-engineers a lot about pride and tectonic activity. Since then, the city has grown at a modest pace and has not suffered from any more destructive volcanic activity. The open city is famed for the views of the bay it is built on and was once considered to be made into an archology. Kagoshima is currently still intact, but most of the population has been moved underground into an Underspire.

>Sapporo Open City, Hokkaido, Japan - An industrial open city famed for its manufacture of vehicles. Several culinary schools also used to operate here. It was unaffected by the Tsunami and still operates as an open city, albeit with increased monitoring of the population and no outside visitors.

A More Detailed Look at Taiwan

Post  Admin on Wed Aug 07, 2013 11:13 am

Taiwan is the focus of some major world events and there is not really any official documentation about it. As an added bonus, it has been changed a lot just during the course of the game, and wil change more in the future.

Note: This is up to date as of Week 70

History of Taiwan
When the Chinese Government fell and the nation was swallowed up by the Ai Jinn the island of Taiwan took the opportunity to distance themselves from the new power. Unfortunately, the government of the USA who had formerly protected the island from invasion was in no fit state to assist and was itself turning into a Corporate superpower. Then the Corporate Wars started.
Taiwan was claimed by both the Shi Yukiro and the Ai Jinn, a recipe for disaster.
Taiwan was hit by chemical, biological, nuclear and eventually D-Shift weapons from both Corporations during the conflict. When the Wars ended Taiwan was technically held by the Shi Yukiro, but it was too far from their homelands to defend easily and would require a massive reconstruction effort. Taiwan was left to fester in pollution, nuclear fall out and dangerous chemicals.

The lack of Corporate oversight provided Taiwan with an almost free-state-like legal system. Its location in the heart of the Eastern Bank meant that the UIG would sometimes step in to make sure nothing too destructive was going on, but overall the inhabitants were left to their own devices.

Industry on Taiwan
Before the recent border skirmish the island was an economic dead zone. Exports were nearly impossible due to Shi Yukiro security protocols, pirates and Ai Jinn competition. The only resources available were the ruins of the cities and facilities destroyed in the Corporate wars. Caches of out dated weapons and equipment are still being found today. The inhabitants worked not for profit, but for survival and as a result they are a very hardy bunch with some unique skills.
At the time of writing there is an extensive construction effort being led by the Ai Jinn to build up defensive fortifications, mostly at the cost of the locals' efforts to rebuild.

Getting In and Out
The S.Y built an array of coastal defences around the island before the D-Shift devices changed warfare. The defences haven't been used in many decades, but they are now being manned by Ai Jinn soldiers to maintain a secure zone around the entire island. It is possible to travel to the island with Ai Jinn permission by using their ports. This situation may improve in the future, but for now the Ai Jinn military is consolidating its power and wishes to keep other Corporations out of the area.

Cities and Ports of Taiwan - More updates to come.

Keelung Old City - (Map)

Taipei Old City - (Map) - The former capital of the Taiwan. What little of the city remained intact was destroyed by cyberlin combat during the border skirmish in weeks 50-52. Not to be confused with New Taipei, which was a much larger metropolis that surrounded Keelung and Taipei before the Corporate Wars.

Taibao Old City - (Map) - A small old city that acts as a hub for several smuggling rings. It is very dangerous to hang around here for long if you have anything worth stealing.

Anping Old City - (Map) - A small town that is being demolished to provide materials for an Ai Jinn fortress, reported in the Week 68 news.

Taichung Port - (Map) - Taichung was once a large city that reached almost entirely across the width of Taiwan. Since the Corporate wars it has been largely uninhabited ruins, but its large port is still used. The port is capable of serving deep-bottomed vessels and would be the primary location for imports and exports if the Taiwan economy had any. The port is currently controlled and guarded by the Ai Jinn military.

Houlong Port - (Map) - A small port that is only remarkable because it has survived intact for centuries. The loading equipment there is still usable, but the container ships and cargo they were built for have long become obsolete and disappeared.
