NO water and electricity for at least 5 years. On a barren hill, in a country thats the dirty armpit of this planet. [sarcasm]I cant imagine why these people would move[/sarcasm]

***My players do not read****









cool, thanks for the links. I love using real world history in my games. Right now my campaign is based around modern Korean history. Right now teh PCs are all political prisoners locked up during the Japanese occupation. Soon, tehy will break out of prison and help overthrow the Japanese. Not long after that, they will find big problems in trying to unify a government for the peninsula, due to both inner tensions andoutside tensions. This will lead a rift, causing the division of the peninsula, later a war and then further separation. Of course, to fit it into D&D terms, I've taken the bones of the story and used alot of creative license to dress them up an put them into a fantasy setting. I odn't think the players have any idea at this point what the story is based off of. Right now though, the future leaders of both the north and south are both locked in prison together; one being a PC, and the other being an NPC, soon to be BBG. There is tension between them, but I don't think the players realize the future crisis they could solve if they just went ahead and killed the right people now.
