The Setting of Dark Metal can be generalized to fall within three different categories:
- The Shiney and Chrome world of LATMA (Bright Zones)
- The Dirty and slummy streets of the Fringe (either the Grey Zones or Dark Zones)
- The Freedom and dangers of the Wastelands.
So when you create a character consider where they would spend their time.

Dark Metal is a game of conflicting technologies. On one hand you have the polished chrome of the skyscrapers and the cyber enhancments of the Bright world and on the other you have the low tech, survival-based adaptations in the Dark.
