Minneapolis-Saint Paul, UCAS

This is intended as a living creative gaming group exercise, taking a current actual city and pushing it into a post cyberpunk dark future. It is may be unfortunate necessary to split this into two pages, are Minneapolis and Saint Paul are different entities but I hope I can preserve the essence of each as I try and detail what a “shadowrun future” might look like. As I am not a native of either city, I apologize for any inadvertent insult to the residents of either city, that a trying to figure out from a perspective of near ignorance what a ‘used future’ version of the twin cities might look like. In fact I chose the twin cities as hope to become more familiar with the area.

This page is still under construction, and will be broken into sub pages for ease of navigation and editing. Cheers and thanks to everyone who has helped make this a reality! [Stefan]
