When the world’s democracies teetered too close to the sun unleashing nuclear war plunging the world into veiled autocracy radioactive fallout killing millions, those that survived developed psychic powers. Afraid those powers would threaten control, the Elite Government passed oppressive Article 15 Thought Crime laws unopposed for fear of retaliation to maintain the social order. But it was one voice, outspoken opposition leader of the Packrat hackers, Faid Callen with nothing to lose who dared risk everything to change the world in a fight for equality and justice he’d need a miracle to win.
As Article 15 swept through the Echelons stripping non-citizens and marginalized psychics of their rights, The powerful Elite Triumvirate led by ZenZen sent Faid’s former hacker mentor, Kaizen the Immaculate after him. Yet, Kaizen’s former student learned his lessons well. The world is changing. The grydscaen is all around you. Faid formed the Packrats to fight for equality, truth, justice. Will you join the fight? This is who we are. Based on the award-winning indie cyberpunk YA grydscaen novels and manga by Natsuya Uesugi.
