Life in the Sixth World
Australia and Oceania
Long a center of unique and strange wildlife, the Australian Republic got even weirder after the Awakening. The Outback is regularly swept by mana storms, making it more dangerous than ever to cross. Many parazoologists make the attempt, though, because they know there are critters out there that have yet to be catalogued. The island of Tasmania, meanwhile, seems to have become a living organism, using its plant growth and animal life to quickly demolish anything metahumans try to construct.
Perhaps the hottest spot in the area is New Guinea. Australia tried to annex it in 2064, and they met resistance from the prime minister—who promptly disappeared. Since then it has functioned as a part of Australia, but in recent years anti-Republic resistance has been growing, meaning there are plenty of politically oriented shadowruns in the area.
