Dying of the Light 2044 is a NEW near-future writing simulation/role playing game set in a dystopian future incorperating both science fiction and cyberpunk elements.

The DOL:2044 background is totally non-canon (i.e. it is NOT related to any specific film, book or TV show etc.). Initially the RPG will be played by e-mail through a dedicated Yahoo Groups page (link below).

Players can play any type of character from tech-heavy mercenaries, corporate executives or switched on hackers to new-age radicals and revolutionaries. The initial scenario will hopefully define the required characters and drop in some NPC's as well as bring the disperate PC group together.

Files are being uploaded to the Yahoo Groups site to give a general view/outlook on the world of 2044 as well as a breakdown of recent future history up to the start date of 2044. These are NOT set in concrete and if any player/writer has some goods ideas or valid suggestions these will, also, be taken on board and the background can be changed accordingly.

ALL Character ideas and concepts are welcome for submission to the moderator.
