Industry! Revolution! Steam!
The rest of the world might be suffering, but the citizens of Uncanny Valley are doing just fine (usually), and have (starting about 20 years ago) taken to catching and raising pokemon.
More recently, a meteor fell to the ground, and with it many strange happenings:
- A haze has washed over the nearby regions and has limited the colour-spectrum to a dull brass noir.
- Mysterious disappearances of many citizens.
- A near-constant light rain.
- The Undead(?). Naww…
eyes of shadow-water,
eyes of well-water,
eyes of dream-water.
Blue suns, green whirlwinds,
bird beaks of light pecking open pomegranate stars.
But tell me, burnt earth, is there no water?
Only blood, only dust,
only naked footsteps on the thorns?
— Ramblings of an Uncanny Valley Citizen, shortly after the Transworld Meteor fell.
