30 Punishments
Systems  (Political)   (Historical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2014-10-12 06:16 AM
Some are rather fun, and I feel like stealing a few :)
I'd revise the list, though, because some, especially towards the end, are sort of weak.
As a whole, a solid 4. Go to Comment

Augmented Disposition Tattoos
Society/ Organizations  (Mercantile)   (World Wide)
EchoMirage's comment on 2013-11-16 01:16 PM
I have to note that genomic alteration will not fully alter a personality; it is necessary to re-write the wiring of personality that had its basic layout provided by the genome and was filled out by experience.
A purely genomic change could alter the type of neurotransmitter receptors expressed, their quantities, etc., inducing broad-spectrum changes in behavior and trends, such as increased docility.

As said, the tattoo is but a brand, a mark of Cain, it could use a greater connection to the core of the sub.

Also, as you're rewriting the genome, the changes would be inheritable?

I'd elaborate on the idea of humans walking among the pods, about the social status of pods, ... basically expanding the de-humanisation theme. Go to Comment
Vitralara, the Mongrelmen
Lifeforms  (Constructed)   (City/ Ruin)
EchoMirage's comment on 2013-08-08 04:25 AM
I am going to steal the Emerald Tiger, 'cause it's awesome.
I am also going to steal the 8-legged horse.
The Devil Monkey and Lion-Hare are pretty cool too, and the Pika-sheep is cute.

All in all, a very good piece; the only thing I'd think about a bit is the 'genetics' of the Vitralara - or was it your intent to provide a background for the feeble DnD Mongrelman? Go to Comment

Hey, where's that wickedness?
Also, are they cross-fertile with humans? Or do they just try? Go to Comment

EchoMirage's comment on 2013-03-20 09:20 AM
I would highly recommend GURPS Biotech for a thorough discussion of this topic - but you covered the main issues very well.

As others said, Lana is the top seller. Imagine a group of escaped Lanas from the Angel program... serving as mercs in some backwater.
They can be told apart only by their wings.
Dude. May I write the MercLanas up?
May I?

Rather charming, I'd say. I wonder how long it will players take to call 'Santa? O.o' on this one. Go to Comment
30 Dwarven Treasures
Items  (Other)   (Non-Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2016-06-01 05:54 AM
Sweet and useful :) I would not call many of them genuine treasures, but they do add lots of flair to dwarf settings. It's as much about these small things as it is about massive statues and holds. Go to Comment
Military Hover Bike
Items  (Transports)   (Combat)
EchoMirage's comment on 2012-09-19 07:39 AM
What altitude can the bike reach?
Because, if it can go high enough, it can ignore most terrain, and needs just an open space to land. Go to Comment
Yothats
Lifeforms  (Intelligent Species)   (Any)
EchoMirage's comment on 2012-09-11 03:01 AM
The logic behind this is flawed.
a) humans treat cows as animals, as cows show no evidence of intelligence not culture, just a herd. You specifically state that Yothats breed out intelligence from their flock, hence are aware of that trait.
b) As described, Yothats lack the capacity to stand against humanity for long. Sure, they are big, but organized into tribes 50 strong - which will fall one by one; their social structure does not support acting in unison for any extended period of time.
c) societies with units of 50 will not have bankers, or even guilds. These rely on a large number of individuals living in a society to support their existence. Go to Comment

I'd really suggest having unfinished 30 (Whatever) in the Forum and posting them here when they hit the mark. That will also serve as a sorting process: those that don't hit the '30' are apparently not interesting enough to go on front page anyways.

CIC Cryodetention Center 19

EchoMirage's comment on 2012-09-09 04:29 PM
By adding the re-education during cryo, you made cryodetention actually meaningful.

A difficult thing is that writing up a prison facility places logical necessities and constraints on the author, making it difficult to get the 'I wish I had thouhgt of this!' moment.
A solid post, no less. Go to Comment
Catbooks
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Magical)
EchoMirage's comment on 2012-09-09 04:37 PM
Tower of Forbidden Cats.
LOL.

As this is written for DnD, and given the nature of the maker of the Catbook, perhaps the book simply suffuses the cat, and by petting it, you are instilled with the knowledge it contains (random fragment if by accident, the piece you want if intentional).
This makes accidentally unleashing the power more likely than if people simply open the cats. Go to Comment

Imagine a tribe of nomads where all the males have the blessing of being were-stallions. The tribe would not need to have ordinary horses to move around, all mounted warriors would be female and a curious custom could be that when a couple gets married, the girl rides her chosen to the altar.
