You've got a one way ticket to the city. Will you find what you're looking for there, or will the journey be what changes your life?

Sounds good... So I imagine you'll be traveling through the desert.

Sounds solid, Jay.  Like what happens after the end of a game of Nicotine Girls.

Looking for some Skin?   Are you living on the Edge?  Looking to flee the Desert for various reasons? 

(Ok, that inspires a lovely Vegas game concept for me at least.)

You're a Null. Less than human as far as they care. At least the slaves belong somewhere--you can only wish someone cared enough to want to own you. But something happened. You got yourself a ticket to the City. The City is all dreams and possibilities. Itís the promise of a better life for all.
The hitch? You sure as hell didnít earn money to buy to buy a ticket. Maybe you did something you arenít proud of. Maybe you made a mistake in order to get gone. Once youíre in the city, nothing can catch up to youóitís beyond the reach of even the Triumverate, deep in the heart of Desert Space. But itís a long cruise to get there, and you havenít outrun your past yet.

Here's a little something:

If youíre wondering about Desert Space and what itís like, first think about what itís called. It isnít literally desertóin fact itís teeming with life. But the people who matteróthe Triumvirate Executives and Proceduralsóconsider it beneath their notice. It is devoid of society in the way that those living in Triumvirate space understand it. Itís system after system of hard planets populated by harder people. Outlaws, sure, but also honest folks who like to live free and away from other peopleís prying eyes. Itís individualism and the frontier spirit. Itís stubbornness and pride.
So thatís whatís there. But the feel of it is something else. Itís dirty. Itís vital and raw. Not hostile, per se, but not open and friendly. Not by a long shot. Itís the promise of the bright future with its gleaming starships and its sterile prefabricated buildings but used and broken and graffitied up real good. Nothingís clean. Few things work like they ought. Itís hard in every way with grime under the nails.
