The Digital Dark Age: Appendix N

So heres a list of the major influences on the Digital Dark Age Campaign. None of it is presented in any particular order of importance. It's a sort of a freak show of science fiction with tones of cyberpunk, noir, pulp, and of course weird. Some are fairly self explanatory, others not so much.

  • The Hyperion Cantos (Dan Simmons)
  • Ilium/Olympos Cycle (Dan Simmons)
  • Red Harvest (Dashiell Hammett)
  • The Takeshi Kovacs Trilogy/Market Forces (Richard K. Morgan)
  • Hellboy/B.P.R.D comic series (Mike Mignola)
  • Path of Fury/ Honorverse (David Weber)
  • Neuromancer (William Gibson)
  • Snowcrash (Neal Stephenson)
  • Northwest Smith (C. L. Moore)
  • The Shadow Over Innsmouth (H. P. Lovecraft)
  • Star Wars (George Lucas)
  • Total Recall (Philip K. Dick)
  • Firefly/Serenity (Joss Whedon)
  • Appleseed (Masamune Shirow)
  • Warhammer 40,000/Necromunda (Games Workshop)
  • Heavy Gear RPG (Dream Pod 9)
  • Cyberpunk RPG (R. Talsorian Games)
