San Paulo, Brazil, 2062 16 years after the Nuclear attacks on What is now The Free States of America. Here, Brazil is the Robotics production capital of the world, and with the advent of Hybrid Bioelectronics Corporation, IMB's Watson MK-IV Artificial Intelligence firmware, and The quantum processing foundation put forth by google in 2020, The future is now. High-end, professional and consumer robotics are being produced at an all time high, from Intelligent kitchen appliances to automated car service androids, Robots are being used all over the world, shipped from here in Brazil. The newest and most advanced systems being employed, however, are Fully Autonomous Units, or F.A.U.s: Bioelectric Robots that can think, act, and speak for themselves. Although through intentional design, they are easily distinguishable from humans, they are incredibly capable, already showing promise in hazardous fields such as nuclear energy projects and off-world research within NASA. One thing, however, has slowed progress with these new androids, self-awareness. They do indeed, possess this capability to perceive and understand both the world and themselves, on a level far exceeding human intelligence.

Players would be posing some unique roles, however. Far from the typical sidestories and minor city dwellers. Characters in the roleplay would be comprised mostly of high-impact individuals in society. government figures, Special Intrest coordinators, High-status F.A.U.s, and media advocates on both sides. I'm hoping to launch this roleplay, with a bit of help and enough pledged interest, by the end of September. Interest, ideas, suggestions, criticism, and everything else can be posted below.
