Emerald City is a brand new setting for your MUTANTS & MASTERMINDS Third Edition campaign. Set in the same universe as the award-winning Freedom City, Emerald City provides a home base for your heroes and a place they can shine. This rich and detailed sourcebook describes a fully realized city that until recently was downright normal. It didn''t have alien armadas filling the sky, or mad gods trying to turn it into a Hell on Earth. Things were stable... until the Silver Storm tore through the city and unleashed a flood of dangerous super-villains and monsters. Now criminal masterminds have cast aside years of fragile peace, ready to go to war to settle old scores and claim the throne of the city''s underworld. Emerald City has no established teams to call on in this crisis. It is a city that needs heroes. Will you answer the call?
|Author||: Jennifer Egan|
These eleven masterful stories – the first collection from acclaimed author Jennifer Egan – deal with loneliness and longing, regret and desire. Egan’s characters – models and housewives, bankers and schoolgirls – are united by their search for something outside their own realm of experience. They set out from locations as exotic as China and Bora Bora, as cosmopolitan as downtown Manhattan, or as familiar as suburban Illinois to seek their own transformations. Elegant and poignant, the stories in Emerald City are seamless evocations of self-discovery.

"At the foot of the snow-capped Cascade Mountains on the forested shores of Puget Sound, Seattle is set in a location of spectacular natural beauty, Boosters of the city have long capitalized on this splendor, recently likening it to the fairytale capital of L. Frank Baum's The Wizard of Oz, the Emerald City. But just as Dorothy, Toto, and their traveling companions discover a darker reality upon entering the green gates of the imaginary Emerald City. those who look more closely at Seattle's landscape will find that it reveals a history marked by environmental degradation and urban inequality. This book explores the role of nature in the development of the city of Seattle from the earliest days of its settlement to the present. Combining environmental history, urban history, and human geography, Matthew Klingle shows how attempts to reshape nature in and around Seattle have often ended not only in ecological disaster but also in social inequality. The price of Seattle's centuries of growth and progress has been high. Its wildlife, especially the famous Pacific salmon, and its poorest residents have paid the highest price. Klingle proposes a bold new way of understanding the interdependence between nature and culture, and he argues for what he calls an 'ethic of place.' Using Seattle as a compelling case study, he offers important insights for every city seeking to live in harmony with its natural landscape"--Provided by publisher.

In 2000, Seattle, Washington, became the first U.S. city to officially adopt the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) “Silver” standards for its own major construction projects. In the midst of a municipal building boom, it set new targets for building and remodeling to LEED guidelines. Its first LEED certified project, the Seattle Justice Center, was completed in 2002. The city is now home to one of the highest concentrations of LEED buildings in the world. Building an Emerald City is the story of how Seattle transformed itself into a leader in sustainable “green” building, written by one of the principal figures in that transformation. It is both a personal account—filled with the experiences and insights of an insider—and a guide for anyone who wants to bring about similar changes in any city. It includes “best practice” models from municipalities across the nation, supplemented by the contributions of “guest authors” who offer stories and tips from their own experiences in other cities. Intended as a “roadmap” for policy makers, public officials and representatives, large-scale builders and land developers, and green advocates of every stripe, Building an Emerald City is that rare book—one that is both inspirational and practical.

Emerald City: The New Adventures of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz by Arnold Schildkret is a new take on the Oz tales that L. Frank Baum invented. Unlike so many of Baum’s followers who have through the years written imitations of the Oz books, Schildkret invents anew the main characters and the landscape of Oz. His conception of the Deadly Desert is especially different from that in other Oz books, as are his conceptions of Dorothy, Ozma, Roquat and most of all Uncle Henry. In addition, his book tells an exciting tale of adventure and conflict, including dangerous threats to the Land of Oz and even war. -Richard Tuerk, Professor Emeritus of Literature and Languages, Texas A&M University, Commerce, Texas. Author of Oz in Perspective: Magic and Myth in the L. Frank Baum Books The New Adventures of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz The Story – The Author’s View Emerald City is a modern sequel to the Wizard of Oz novel and film. It is an original story based on the characters of the novels of Frank Baum. Emerald City is a story of the bond of loyalty and friendship in the Land of Oz. Post 9/11/2001, we can all relate to a story of a utopian city where everyone loves each other and in which good triumphs over evil. The World of Oz has been changed by the loss of the Love Magnet. With its loss comes the immanent danger of the loss of the city, destruction of its way of life, and destruction of all of its magical creatures and inhabitants. Other events seem to conspire to ensure the Kingdom will be lost to Roquat, the evil Nome King. It is the humanity and foibles of all of the characters, even the evil ones, which will stir you and tug on your emotions. Humor and sadness, love and hate, good and evil, loss and redemption are mixed in a potpourri of fantasy and reality. Recurrent themes throughout are understanding our differences, loving each other, giving strangers the benefit of the doubt, and standing together in the face of evil. The story plays on four levels, as a fairy tale for children, as science fiction, and social and political satire for teenagers and adults.

Joseph Grosso traces the history of New York's transformation back into a gilded city, and asks what can be done about it. He examines New York's deindustrialization and the elite planning and design that followed; New York's financial crisis of the mid-1970s and the policy decisions made in its wake; New York's housing crisis; and the history of public housing across the United States. Making the history of gentrification and deindustrialization widely available and understood is a crucial tool in combating housing crises which continue to spread in cities around the world as more and more houses are left empty, to be used for global investments instead of for living. Fresh, lively, accessible, Grosso brings the issues of gentrification, deindustrialization, homelessness, and militarized policing, so easily ignored, to the fore.
