    I just love the Newspeak of the Union... We gotta agree, the Technocracy is unique in the WoD, which is why I find them so fun... All the orwellian rubbish, all the doublethink... It's priceless

    And I remember how many times I would send PCs to room 101 for improper language when first playing them, and my players still trying to adapt... "Avatar? I find your worldviews... Disturbing, agent..."

      You probably want よこ or ようこ, not よっこ.

      That still seems far too innocuous to describe what goes on in a Hive or the like.

          Fuck Farms would be some Mobster sexual slavery camp of sorts.

          The BSD hive would be more akin to the breeding hives of the creature of the movie "Alien"

              Your Romanization style seems a bit off. That first name is commonly rendered Yoko, Youko or Yohko, with an extended o sounded in yo, not Yokko. indicating an extended k sound.

              and what ya mean with innocuous?
              I mean that the BSDs endeavor to be far worse than they were yesterday, on every tomorrow.
