I've been steadily working on my paleo-futures
, but I am still missing a couple of eras for "punkification." I'm eager for feedback on my suggestions, and I'm open to suggestions of other eras (so long as they don't overlap with what I already have). The Great War -
A 1910s-punk, the Great War is still raging in that far future year of 2015. The Western Front has become a de facto physical border, while the East has become a mess of offensives and counteroffensives. Lettow-Vorbeck's German forces (actually, their sons by African mothers) are still harassing the Entente in Africa. The Bolsheviks tried a revolution but were forced out of the cities by the Tsarists and into the Caucasus, where they have their own weird society. The United States remains neutral, and will sink any ship (Entente or Central Powers) that dares to come near its shores and ships. We're In the Money
- A 1920s-punk, the Roaring Twenties never ends. An Objectivist United States serves as a counterbalance to the Soviet Union, and while the two of them fight proxy wars across the world, their cosmopolitan cultures aren't so different from one another. The Entente stands victorious in Europe, their governments in a very strong, technocratic alliance. It's just too bad about Germany, which is still an impoverished state in political shambles that still owes reparations for its role in the Great War. That is still better than China's fate, as that state has been "permanently" fractured between rival warlords. Dustbowl -
A 1930s-punk, but you'd be forgiven for mistaking it for Mad Max. The Great Depression only ended with a world war and many civil wars that eroded civil order around the world. The Dust Bowl has become a global phenomenon, causing mass starvation around the world. The rural areas are deserts filled with raiders, and cities are forced to rely on unconventional means (like soylent green) for food. The United States is fractured, with many different governments claiming to be the legitimate American government. Places like Spain and many African colonies are in total shambles, run by warlords of varying insanity. Nazi Germany and the Soviet Union remain stable, but only because they have cut themselves off from the outside world and have resorted to draconian means to keep their society going. War Never Changes -
A 1950s-punk, just my take on Fallout pre-War. I may make my own 50s-punk afterwards.
