So I'm using the Kiliminjaro Ring Transmission from the main rulebook. I'm going to list most of the elements here so you can have them in mind when you're making up your characters. You all are probably involved in or at least on the fringes of the criminal underworld here.
So here's the main blurb.
Mount Kilimanjaro, site of the Earth-to-Orbit Beanstalk, has the attention of the richest conglomerates in the world. Theres a lot to be gained by easy space access: a wealth of minerals, cheaper construction in zero-gee, and an outlet for an overcrowded biosphere. Much of the bleeding-edge nanocon- struction being used comes from Steiner Technology, both on the Beanstalk and in Ring City.
(In case it's not clear, the Beanstalk is under construction.)
For those working in the Construction Zone, the debris blots out the sun. But the massive Ring City circling the summit a mile below the Zone is a perfectly cleanif densely populatedarcology network. Built over the last ten years, air and waste are completely recycled while power is generated from Kilimanjaros geothermal energy. The Ring is a pressurized environ- ment with generated sunlight and manufactured seasonsall the comforts of near sea-level living.
Kilimanjaro isnt the only volcano here. The East African Federation keeps a tight hold on land rights, allowing only short leases for Foreign nationals. Frequent construction delays, terrorist threats, and media sensationalism have relationships between the government and investors ready to erupt.
