Again it's me trying to tap into the collective mind of the Story Games community. There's so many great ideas here I'm sure you can help me.
I'm wondering if there are any good ideas/methods/techniques for coming up with interesting and unique cultures. I'm pretty sure a few of you guys have come accross this "challenge" before and come up with some great ways to do it. I know there's stuff out there like the Hard Boiled Cultures
supplement for 4E. Anyone has some feedback on that one? Also if you've got some other products or ideas, let me know.
I'm primarily asking because I'm trying to think up "modern" (current day tech level-ish) cultures. There's a lot of material and inspiration out there on fantasy cultures but no so much on ideas in a modern context. Now I'm having some trouble getting started but I'm sure once I make a little progress it'll be a lot easier. So if you can help me, that'd be great.
