100 Hooks and Rumours for Dystopia Rising: Evolution


This supplement has 100 hooks and rumours that characters could hear in the world of Nor'Merica. The Storyguide can use these as random bits of information that characters could discover, or as potential adventure hooks. They cover the Nor'Merica setting, concentrating on Philly del Phia, as the most detailed location, but the rest of the continent as well, including creature-related rumours.

Here are some sample results:

  • Nathan Eisenhower is the Father and gang leader of the Brokeland Bowl, a Nuclear Family in the Brokelands of Old York. Eisenhower is reputedly obsessed with getting a perfect 300 game at their bowling alley, despite the losses the gang has suffered to zombies, and the remaining members of the Brokeland Bowl are murmuring that he needs replacing before he gets them destroyed due to his obsession.
  • Niall Hansen is expanding his family's fishing trade in Philly del Phia, and is attempting to take more from Boat Town. There's a rumour that out at sea the attempts get rather more physical, with Hanson and Boat Town trawlers clashing with each other. No ship has been sunk as yet, but it's thought that some have come close.
  • Old York's Lineage League has influence that stretches across the wastelands, focused on tracking the lineage of Pure Bloods and funding efforts to advance humanity. It's known that the Lineage League considers ethics a secondary matter, at best, but there are rumours that their known experiments are only the tip of the iceberg. That out in the wastelands there are secret labs performing experiments that would horrify anyone who discovered what they were.
  • Patty Emperor of Water Giraffe and G-Note's WG Hoagie are two sandwich shops run by Yorkers who originally set up together then had a falling out. So far, the conflict between them has mostly been yelling at customers who have visited the other shop for their poor choice in cuisine, but there are rumours of more serious altercations, with some customers getting beaten up by unknown assailants who are presumed, though, to be associated with the other shop.
  • Perhaps the biggest threat that Cinders pose is the fact that they are always on fire, though they can be seen coming from some distance away, especially at night. It's rumoured that some have discovered a way to protect themselves from the fire, and then herd Cinders so that they will head towards an enemy or rival.

One page is the front cover and three the front matter.

Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
