In Aberrant, London reflects Britain's nova-hating isolationism extremely well. Unlike most other metropolises of Nova 2008, London has degenerated back to the grime and social raucousness of the Thatcher Era. Strikes, riots and social ill-ease are common.
In Mage: the Ascension, London is a highly-populated slightly gothic metropolis, in keeping with the rest of the World of Darkness. London is the home to many supernatural groups and associations, mostly leaving each other alone to pursue their own careers.
