brassburg




The year is 1874.

The Heterodyne Boys are gone and, despite the War being over, Europa is plagued with chaos. Rogue machines and monsters terrorize the countryside, and revenants, the shambling servants of the Other, threaten travelers and towns alike. The vast stretches of land between cities, the Wastelands, have become hostile to human life, and town populations swell as people seek refuge inside their walls.

Brassburg was once an uneventful little city in southern Austria, nestled in the foothills of the Alps. Lately, however, it has become a haven to wanderers, adventurers of all stripes, minor sparks on the run, and all manner of people just looking to hide out until everything blows over. With the rise in population, the city has struggled to keep up, but overcrowding has become a problem in all sectors as the city scrambles to accommodate more and more citizens within its walls. The streets in all districts have naturally become somewhat less safe once the sun goes down, most noticeably in the poorer sectors, but many find themselves more willing to face the dangers within the city rather than try to survive the chaos without.

The city itself is ruled by a small council, though it was once presided over by the house of Amadeus Brass III. Bureaucracy has caused stagnation in the legal process, which only exacerbates the problems the city is now facing. The hospitals are full, the housing is inadequate, and it takes weeks to get anything done; the citizenry is, for better or for worse, pretty much on its own. Vigilantism has stepped up to ease some of the pressure on the already-stressed police force; while technically illegal, most are content to look the other way rather than expend resources combating what most of the population views as their allies. Of course, those unhindered by the intricacies of the legal system are restricted only by their own personal versions of 'justice'... but it's a small price to pay for the illusion of safety.

Good luck. In this city, you'll need it.
