At Any Price - - Paul Elliot's Zaibatu rpg & Postcards from Avalidad by Miguel Ribeiro, & Manuel Souza Combined

 “There are no innocent bystanders ... what are they doing there in the first place?”

― William S. Burroughs, Exterminator!

Yes, what are they doing there in the first place?!  Let's pick it right up from the other day on the blog.  Who are the party in the first place?!  If their agents of the powers from Postcards from Avalidad by Miguel Ribeiro, &  Manuel Souza combining it with Zozer Games Zaibatsu rpg . Then these are agents out in the wider world on a mission from Zone Security or a worse government agency. 

The wider world of such a campaign is going to be straight up low lifs & corporate violence set against the very foundations of a weird & wild society. Conspiracies are going to form & go down at will with pyramid schemes & inner black market technologies trading against each other at will. Postcards from Avalidad by Miguel Ribeiro, &  Manuel Souza has tons of NPC corporate, governmental, and worse just waiting to take a pair a party of scum. The biggest prizes of weird technological immortality await the bold. For a 2d6 game driven engine like Zozer Games Zaibatsu rpg Stellagamma Publishing's 'From The Ashes 2nd edition' may help to fill in some of the experimental gaps. 

“A paranoid is someone who knows a little of what's going on. ”
― William S. Burroughs

The real question becomes what does immortality actually mean to the spiritual landscape of 
Avalidad ? If the supernatural aspects of these technologies are going to verge on the nihilism of Clive Barker's book's mythologies & divinities then things are going to get much trickier. There are no such powers with in Zozer Games Zaibatsu rpg.

This doesn't mean that they're are not present.Far from it in fact. Consider the following if there are highly dangerous psionic technologies in Postcards from Avalidad by Miguel Ribeiro, &  Manuel Souza. Then it stands to reason that we ourselves would create the 'gods' or demons ourselves. Don't forget that an aspect of Postcards from Avalidad's stats are for the role playing game 'Actual F$#$ing Monsters'. And if technologies for immortalty are in the mix can these same technologies create the very monsters or mutates that Zone Sec is designed to destory?! 

If these technologies get loose from the corporate powers of  Postcards from Avalidad by Miguel Ribeiro, &  Manuel Souza. Then the uniqie powers of the corporations will be lost that edge is suddenly gone as the mad dash to secure immortality becomes the big factor for creating increasingly violent corporate warfare.
