no dont lock it, little things can continue to be discussed here, while major pieces of exposition are moved to the official thread; thus saving it from uneccesary spam and clutter.

bebbephant, i dont think you've quite got the hang of it; people don't control factions in this story, you can insert your character(s) wherever you please...

get on msn. We can speak further. If you have any ideas for a character. I don't want to assign something to you, unless that's what you really want.

Anywho, that's a good idea Raja.

btw, alexios you can call the Biosyn the 'leaders in transhumanism or posthumanism, and bebbephant can have a character that is religiously conservative and is aligned against the practices of Biosyn.

helpful wiki links for ze story:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Germline_engineering (basically what biosyn does) we don't have to include it, but apparently people who have this may be different enough from humans to be a different species and hence unable to procreate.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human_genetic_engineering

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eco-terrorism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ecofascism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Green_anarchism

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permaculture

some ideas for possible future technologies that should be available:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_rapid_transit

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virtual_retinal_display

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Semantic_Web

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/3D_printing

huh? what the hell does that have to with anything?

anyways, you should read them - they've already given me a lot of new ideas for the story...

(and it helps to know about human genetic engineering if you're going to be writing about it)

i've actually pretty much figured out what my character is going to do in the story...

hmm, i just read the teaser story; and i think in light of the recent developments you'll agree that it would need a major overhaul (especially the references to genetic supremacy). secondly, i wasn't aware that this world would have quite such a high level of degradation; certainly worse than today, but far from a wasteland. and the riots seem pretty bad for the beginning of the story.

it is in the process of such an overhaul. And, I envisioned some cities (particularly London) as a large slum. The riots are bad. Which is why they were supposed to take place three months before the story.

Also, the teaser could be scrapped.

well, there ARE a lot more slummy parts then there are now; but i always imagined that these cities had become decrepit and dirty, not outright hellholes...

Post by The Weaver on 2008-08-30, 21:16

Riots could happen for a number of reasons:

shortage riots - this is when there's not enough food, or power for heating in winter, or some other important aspect of life is suddenly missing and people have got beyond desperation;

social riots - this is when people are split along class, ethnic, religious or other lines, such as football club allegiance. These erupt in volatile neighbourhoods usually when a wrong is done to one group and blamed on another;

political riots - these occur when a political protest is misled by agents-provocateur or by hotheads into an attack on police or property; or when the powers that be deliberately provoke a protest march into rioting by ordering an unprovoked police attack, or by using agents provocateur.

There's been quite a few food riots in recent times, in developing countries hit by the sudden jump in food prices over the last two years. Rioting football fans, race riots, riots in various places over religion - these all happen fairly regularly in various parts of the world. Even here in little ol' NZ we've had a few - the Queen Street riots of the '30s, when the unemployed were attacked by the police; the vicious running battle that erupted in Auckland in 1981 between the riot squads and anti-Springbok tour protesters, and a very peculiar riot that erupted in 1984 when the police shut down an open-air rock concert here in Auckland in Aotea square - best described as a youth riot.

So it wouldn't surprise me in the least that there would be riots in large cities where people had lost a lot, and had passed on a sense of grievance and betrayal from one generation to the next.
