A lot of people are afraid of the (teletransportation paradox https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Teletransportation_paradox), which is where a teleporter breaks you down and then reconstructs you on the other side. Is that really you on the other end?
The promethean approach to AI integration somewhat avoids a similar conundrum - if you just scan your brain into an AI is the simulated brain still you?
For some reason people don't have as much of an issue with (slow transitions https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_Theseus). If you slowly integrate yourself with a machine until you are all machine, perhaps there is no harm done. Maybe the Promethians have thought of this.Go to Comment
Can't help but think of Edward Elric when reading this.
The layout of the post is what we are looking for. By that I mean intro, description, history, etc.
My first reaction to the word Zwagon is negative, but if you say it aloud a few times you find it is surprisingly fun to say.
- Do the Zwagons have bat-wings that are separate from or connected to their main arms?
- The quest idea (1) isn't very Zwagon-specific. Maybe something to do with Elric or his mystical staff?
- Maybe mention in the blurb text at the top that this is a race of humanoid dragon-like beings?Go to Comment
I have the same knee-jerk reaction as I did to 25_Things_to_Find_in_a_Nook_Alcove_or_Grotto, namely that _anything_ can go in this list. The list has both specific and general items; a Ring of Heaven, for example, is very very specific, whereas grave goods is less so and could contain magic items.
You've already contributed so much to Dont_Forget_the_Coffin! Why create a new list? Can you change this one to focus on something to make it different?
Finally, the spacing between headers and entries seems odd.Go to Comment
