Ramon’s Continued Notes on the Multiverse

Allow me to recant and give you words of caution.  Remember, only take jobs that you can verify first.  If you don’t, you might find yourself bound, gagged and stuffed in a warehouse in the Lower Ward…  And from there?  Well, read on and find out.  Take it from a personal experience, at least I got some jink from a Sensate interview out of it.  But, if you are more streetwise than I, then you will ahead of whatever challenges and traps lurk behind every corner.  And yes, this includes the countless wonders of Sigil, the City of Doors.

Warning bashers and berks isn’t the purpose of this little session for today.  No!  Rather, I’m picking up where I left off from before.  I’ve continued to take notes of all sorts of wonderful places and things in the multiverse.  As always, revisiting a few places while finding new ones.  So, let us find old friends and seek out new ones.  Off I go, to places unknown and places barely known.

Author’s Note:  As always, I love adding places to Planescape and beyond.  One of my creations was actually a series of notes from years ago.  If I found it before, something would have been said on it in the past.  But, here’s my cobbled together take on developments on top of The Slags, the most infamous part of The Hive Ward!  Joining that is a return to some previous concepts that I failed to really flesh out.  And as always, a few other ideas are tossed around.  Enjoy!  As always, reference nods usually get a tag.

“It’s time for New Oerth City’s favorite game show pastime!  ‘Killer Cars and Motor Murder!’  It’s the only game show that combines demolition derby, gladiatorial combat and modern popular culture!  Strap on your helmets and visors, it’s carnage time!”

In several dystopian and post-apocalyptic books, games and movies; technology hasn’t so much improved our lives so much as modified how we do things… whether it’s in the name of everyday convenience or horrible acts of violence.  In the case of today’s post?  We’re reinventing the former to do the latter!  Twisted game shows, a new form of combat among road warriors, an armored carriage against an unrelenting wasteland, improved assets for both warfare and public suppression, you get the idea.  I’m talking about stuff like Death Race 2000, Twisted Metal, Blood Drive, Mad Max, Cel Damage, Car Wars, stuff like that!  So today, we dedicate this post to decked out and weaponized automobiles!

Author’s Note:  I’ve been wanting to update vehicles for a while!  Plus, this is an excuse to write up some ideas for vehicular combat, in terms of more modern machines.  Jousting with motorcycles, fuck yeah!  And yes, I realize that some of the ideas below are somewhat sparse notes, but I’ll probably come back to this later.  After all, I promised someone something on racing, something on jousting and even mecha battles!  GIANT ROBOTS!!
