the year is +2569 Human Chronology
Humanity is arrayed into a coalition of regional, planetary, and interstellar states. The not-Sangheilli went from modern-day UK to Somalia due to a massive civil war. The not-Unggoy and not-Kigyar are broing it up because the they're home planets were a binary system. There's an entire nation made up of uplifts and smart AIs. All this is overseen by the Coalition of Interstellar Nations, a group that is a more effective UN run from an artificial planetoid created by the precursors that is essentially a combination of the Citadel and Extropia. They are connected by a series of wormhole gates and quantum-entangled communications arrays. No artificial gravity, no reaction less drives. Spaceships are equivalent to Eclipse Phase, as is all the cybernetics and bioware. The players are just straight-up shdowrunners, taking various odd jobs throughout the tiny portion of the galaxy that is inhabited.

There's also evolved dinosaurs on Mars.

It's the post apocalyptic rust belt and adventurers go into overgrown factories, abandoned towns, and thick forests to reclaim resources and sometimes even lost knowledge or on fact finding and surveying missions for a few of the remaining universities or reassembled governments.

Researchers and governments don't go in themselves because of wild men that are a blend of Lovecraftian cultists and meth cooks. Mutants are also a nasty problem but they're pretty rare.

As I like lots of Chinese stories and movies, it makes me consider the idea of players-as-rebels. The government is corrupt, maybe the "king" just got usurped by his evil brother or whatever, and the players are some kind of now "illegal" faction.

Maybe one if the rightful heir, or they're part of a now outlawed religion, whatever. Need to be sure there is a strong hook that they give a damn in there somewhere.

Would need to come up with a clear picture of the "kingdom" it takes place and maybe a bit about neighbors as potential allies or enemies.

In concept it's pretty neutral though, you just need some kind of "nation" to set it in, from Iron Age tribes to modern nation-states could fit this in.

Setting 1. A post-apocalypse world, Bakshi Wizards style, but without elves and other magic folks. Religions are weird: druidism, all worldwide religions mashed together, satanism, and some other really strange ones.

Setting 2. The world is alive. Or half-alive. All races are its symbiotes and parasites.

Setting 3. Cyberpunk. With magic. Magic is Unknown Armies style or similar, it's a cyberpunk magic. There are no elves, orcs, dwarves, etc. There may or may not be vampires, demons/half-demons.

Setting 4. Primal Fantasy. There are several races that are all different breeds of humans (or most of them), cool anachronisms everywhere.

Setting 5. Steampunk. Modern world with magic. Laws of physics and reality in general are different, alchemy works, impossible steam machines work too. Religions are evil. Might be Lovecraftian.

Setting 6. Pocket-sized fairies live in the human world. They must keep their existence secret to most people, but they use humans' industry products for their purposes. Also, there are wizards who hunt fairies for potion components and animals who hunt them for fun and food.

A continent that just got out of its renaissance period and is now in the industrial era, with steam engines being designed and built. The continent has few natural resources left from the huge boom in production and is covered with the remnants of factories that have been abandoned and fields of houses or scrap that are either destroyed and forgotten or in the midst of that. Most people live on the street if they're poor (which the majority of them are) or in some sort of housing complex. The continent has few nobles and wealthy people as well, this is because most of them spent their fortunes on business that never took off and then failed leaving them in debt.

To make a living, people work in the large factory houses that still exist in their area. Each person hoping to earn enough that day to survive and be able to afford food that night. Those that don't work in the factories are lucky but few.

They are usually the sons and daughters of the "upper class" even though so few of those families remain. Most of the times the wealthy children are enrolled in schooling academies and are taught numbers, written language and the sciences. Children that are more fit than others are usually put in the policing academies that are around.

The police in this setting are more like its military, each one trained to face the horrors of human depravity and crime around every corner.
