Influences


Before diving into some City in Darkness minutia, I thought I should talk a little bit about my influences. This is a broad list, but I know I have forgotten a lot. I have a blogroll over to the right hand side, and these have been my direct inspiration for starting this blog. (Incidentally, I am always looking for more blogs along these lines so please, pass them along).
I think after that list it should be pretty obvious where I am going with this blog. I want to create an atmosphere of Victorian London pea soup fogs, with massive inequality and brutality. I want to create an absurdist society that is nevertheless, fundamentally human. Grounded, gritty fantasy with "real" people. If I am lucky, something original will emerge and I can add something to the genre instead of just aping it.
So, some lofty goals. Next time I will present some more gazetteer style entries, but soon I also want to go back over the original document I presented last week to explain what I feel needs changjng.
