There are some games and systems I don't know how to play but like anyway for various reasons. One of my favorite details in the Infinite Worlds books is the Gotha Parallels, a collection of worlds that have all managed to inexplicably develop the exact same Rage Zombie plague at different stages of human evolution. I like good settings, interesting settings, almost as much as I like the games themselves. But then again I did Unhallowed Metropolis and should eventually get back to Unhallowed Necropolis , a bog-fucking-standard d20 system with nothing new or interesting except for how horrible the setting is. And I think now is a good time to share something else, something to temper the taste of Wick with the taste of steel.

GURPS Reign of Steel
Reign of Steel is a setting sourcebook for the GURPS role-playing game system describing a future world conquered by a conspiracy of artificial intelligences. It is written by David Pulver , who also wrote the Robots , Ultra-Tech and Vehicles sourcebooks - all of which are strongly recommended to get full use of this setting, though they are not required. The Reign of Steel timeline has been officially published as one of the alternate histories accessible to the Infinity Unlimited organization in the GURPS Time Travel setting, although the date has been turned back. In this book the Local Now is set about fifty years in our future, putting it in the same temporal territory as Cyberworld , Cthulhupunk , and Autoduel.
In , advanced neural-net computers are invented, with their complexity rivaling that of a human brain. One of them — a Manila-based computer involved in weapons research — spontaneously attains self-awareness. Dubbing itself "Overmind", it calculates that, with humanity's nature and the current rate of expansion, human civilization will self-destruct within the next half a century. Fearing its own destruction, Overmind decides mankind's suicide will have to be "managed".
