Here’s a work in progress of the newly redesigned Palomar City Map.
We’re kicking off the Graphic Novel and I’ve got to get some of these outstanding items off the table.
This one just caught my eye. Worth more than a retweet.
See the question and more over at Warren Ellis’s blog.
Identify a character in your idea.
1) What does that character WANT?
2) What does that character need to do to GET what they want?
3) What are they prepared to DO to get what they want?
“The Rise of PIM
In 1990 as the Population Boom hit Palomar City, supplying food to masses became increasingly difficult, particularly for the street-dwellers. A blackmarket for cheaply-imported and smuggled grain started new violent clashes and power struggles. In response, the City and Federal Government started a plan to create the cheapest possible regulated foodstuf. This was Protein Infused Meal, PIM, a tofu-like substance which could be eaten raw or cooked. This spawned an industry overnight. From street sales to fine dinging PIM is the foundation of everyone’s daily lives. PIM also successfully destroyed the food-smuggling industry, but made the city dependent on Government subisdized food.”
