Guilds of Shibuya


Thieves? Don’t be rude. Thieves are selfish. A hustler always helps a hustler.


The Arcane have mastered the power of magic. Power that loud, and dangerous if you don’t know what you’re doing.


Warriors are trained to be the best at what they do.


Savants are fixated on peak physical fitness. They value life well lived, friends and good food. Money is for fools.


Pirates are all about their rides, and ‘flow,’ the concept of everything working out for the best. Their optimism can be tiering.


Building is rebuilding, right? Tinks like devices, because devices make sense, unlike magic. At least machines can be fixed.


Brewer’s don’t freestyle with recipes. That gets people killed. There’s right, wrong and not much in between for them.

The City

The party spot, where secrets are kept and money is lost.

Parts and supplies for everything is sold in the Expo Markets, and explosions aren’t unusual.

Gambling central. You can see a bot fight, feats of strength and magical abilities.

‘The country,’ where life is slower and the animals out number the people.

If you don’t have a ride, you can catch a zeppelin. Not the fastest way to get around but reliable.

The guards of the city walls keep the people safe from the real horrors of the world.

Large buildings have access to the sewer, but most don’t. Nothing down there but trouble really.

The docks are where you can find the catch of the day, and weird stuff found in the deep.
