Cold In Death
Cold in Death: A cyberpunk Murder Mystery set in 2070 Chicago.
Setting: Chicago, IL in the year 2070 in a slightly futuristic world. While most aspects of society and technology remain fairly similar to the world of today, there are many new technologies that are commonplace with their society. Cars that are capable of ground or air travel, droids which are used for a wide variety of tasks (anything from security to serving). Firearms are illegal and can only be acquired by licensed collectors. Lasers and “Stunners” are now the most common types of weapon a citizen can own.
Basic Plot: The player characters are part of a CPSD (Chicago Police and Security Department) Special Cases unit called in to investigate an accident in which a worker is killed by a maintenance droid.
