Venus is a dying world, slowly drying out: there are no longer great rivers or lakes, and it never rains. Great aqueducts transport water to the cities and their farms. The deserts are spreading. City-states and barbarian tribes fight over the control of water sources, often found where there are still jungles and forests.
So hey, I made something. It's a mini-setting and oracle for In a Wicked Age that's basically a product of thinking about why that dude is wearing a helmet and not much more, and playing Wicked Archipelago
for the first time (because now I'm stoked to play more, and I want to do it half-naked on Venus).
So here, City-States of Venus
. (The names being upside down will totally make sense once you print it and fold it twice, I promise!)
