The Shadows of Oz
World Headquarters: Vladivostok, Russia
As suggested by its name, Evo is a corporation that looks to the future.
Formerly called Yamatetsu, the erstwhile Japanese megacorp with its
headquarters in Russia and a free spirit as its largest stockholder has
reinvented itself, focusing its considerable resources on transhumanist
projects ranging from bioware and genetics to cutting-edge nanotech,
anti-aging experiments, and other even more out-there projects designed
to take metahumanity to the next stage of evolution. Aside from
being transhumanist, Evo is also transplanetary, as the first megacorp
to successfully set up a base on Mars.
Along with all this, Evo hasn’t forgotten its other pet cause: “metahuman
factors engineering” (designing and producing metahumanfriendly
products), and it still leads the megas in goods and services
designed with orks, trolls, elves, dwarfs, changelings, and other nonhuman
people in mind.
