The Song remains the same
Outside the corporate megalopolis and the rigid order of Utopia is the new world. Much of it is dangerous filled with strange horrors spawned from the death and rebirth of the world that was. This undeveloped mutating landscape is forbidden to the general populace and called Black Zones. It is a punishable offense for many settlements for a person to wander around unauthorized. Safety for the life that is left is enough for many to embrace the cautionary tales and respect the threat of punishment. But to the rare few the Black zones hold a mystery that cannot be resisted.
Black zones make up the majority of the known world. Proving too sturdy and inhabited by too many varied life forms for the resources of civilization to tame. Some entire land masses, such as Australia are cordoned off and forbidden. Most of the sea is designated a Black zone due to the almost primordial nature of the inhabited life, the Chulorviah and the Wyld infused grottos guarded by the Rokea. Only the bravest Endron crew tries to steal resources from the black zones.
