Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?
It is 2021 in the bleak post-nuclear zone of Northern California, where Rick Deckard is the bounty hunter assigned to hunt down and "retire" an escaped group of Nexus 6's -- the most fearsome androids ever created,"replicants" virtually indistinguishable from human beings. But Deckard finds himself hunted by the rogue androids, and dangerously entangled with their prototype, the seductive Rachel Rosen.

The 21st Century super-states. Wes-bloc and Peep-East, kept an uneasy balance of power with a bizarre arms race - each producing a flood of terror weapons then promptly "plowsharing" them into consumer goods.
Lars Powderdry, Wes-bloc's weapons fashion expert, and his Peep-East counterpart, Lilo Topchev, were their nations' most jealously guarded assets.
