Roma-3

Roma-3
In this Earth Roma rules aeterna, media and all kinds of entertainment are around the place continually bombarding the consumer citizen. Bisexual relationships is normal and encourage by cultural standards but heterosexuality and having only one sexual partner are seen as some kind of sexual aberration. Hunger and organ donor’s problems ended with cloning. And clones of animals and people are used in the complex “arena games”. They have a branch of the government that study paranormal phenomena. PL:5 (except for genetic engineering and cloning). SOURCES: GURPS: Alternate Earths (RPG). d20 Future: Cloning.

Important Organizations:
1878BC: Roma Aeternal, the Roman Empire triumphant, is not fully brought up to modern times, but instead explores the new concept of “Steam Centurians”. That is, the timeline has reached about 1878 and the Roman Empire (in this case the third one) has extended over most of the world. This is a little better than The Reich in concept and detail, and certainly more original. It would have been a good idea if they had cross referenced this with “GURPS ROME” (and might have been a good springboard to reissue that classic GURPS Sourcebook), and it certainly should have been given more space in the book (Perhaps the pages I feel were wasted on The Reich).
2005BC: In 2005 the Roman Empire has the same advancements as in Homeline of the same year. They have gone a little more in terms of Cloning and Genetic Engineering. They have clones that serve as replacement parts and have develop genetically enginered mythological creatures for their zoos and the colliseum. Activist fight for the rights of the clones. The movement is called SVH: Simulacrum Veritas Homo (En los clones existe la verdad del hombre).

Roma 3
Los medios de comunicacin y el entretenimiento estßn an mßs descontrolados en el mundo de Roma 3 que en el de Earth Prime. Los chismes de personas famosas estßn en la boca de todos y las cadenas de comunicacin incluyen todos los medios desde emisoras televisivas y radiales, periodicos, revistas y el internet. Pantalas gigantes adornan muchos lugares junto a anuncios gigantes puestos en los edificios adorandos con arcos y columnas romanas. La ropa de la gente cambia de temporada a temporada y de moda en moda al igual que el color y modelo de los carros. El consumerismo y los juegos en los colliseos son la orden del dφa y al forma de vida de estos habitantes. Las enfermedades han sido controladas con los bancos de clonacin (Simulacrum Emporiums) y las guerras han sido acabadas desde que en los 1910 terminaron de conquistar Japn, Australia y Argentina. Estßn orgullosos de sus artes, de su milicia y de su forma de gobierno y siempre mencionan a alguna de las tres cosas cuando no estßn hablando de los juegos. La violencia en la televisin, el homsexualismo y la pedofilia es algo normal en este mundo con sus reglas y delimitaciones sociales establecidas. Los nativos comen comida rßpida en sitios como Burger Emporium donde tienen sus propios vomitoriums, entre noticias y programas de farandulas pueden ver en la televisin la nueva serie Amiqus mientras beben refrescos como BacoCola. El idioma latφn estß metido en todas partes y aunque cada raza habla en su idioma todos lo conocen pues es costumbre poderle a las ciudades, lugares y cosas nombres en latin. Los nombres de las personas, aunque sean de otras razas, estßn “latinizados”. Para los habitantes de este mundo el tener ranks en Knowledge/Popular y Knowledge/Current Events para mantenerse al tanto de los chismes y los medios todo el tiempo es importante. Para todos saber por lo menos leer latin es importante tambien.

Activist fight for the rights of the clones. The movement is called SVH: Simulacrum Veritas Homo (En los clones existe la verdad del hombre).

The Marathon Man

The Running Man is a gladiatorial-style competition that takes place in an earthquake-ruined section of Los Angeles, with several ‘runners’ attempting (and it is implied that before Richards, invariably failing) to survive while being chased by “hunters”. The hunters in the movie resemble professional wrestlers, with fancy weapons, costumes and nicknames. Some of the hunters were played by professional wrestlers, among them Jesse Ventura; football legend Jim Brown also played a hunter. The show’s host was played by Richard Dawson, in a self-parody of his most famous role as the host of the game show, Family Feud.
