"What other magical vestments might we pair this with?"
1. Hat of Sudden Items
Whenever the wearer tips the hat in greeting or salute, out pops whichever last item the cloak's thieving hands stole and "pocketed", usually leading to embarrassment or worse, for the wearer.
2. Boots of the Getaway
two additional shadowy boots emerge from this footwear, whenever the cloak's hands steal something. These phantom boots kick the shins of the cloak's latest victim, as hard as possible.
Sorry, I'm just having fun with this :DGo to Comment
Forgot to mention "virtual" food freaks me out. Is it *possible* that humans evolve in a sort of reverse psychosomatic way and come to accept the nothingness while *not* physically starving to death?? We are what we eat sure, but how about the power of mind over matter and all that? Over a long period of time I mean. I guess my question is, let's say that the virtual food experience proliferates in the future. What would be virtual food's "natural" progression seven-eight hundred years later? Would it come to be obsolete? Or would lifeforms accept it as "real" eventually? Does this question makes sense?Go to Comment
This is horrible, revolting, depressing and gross. And a really fun article to read! Some great lines like..."it's good for environment and "ok" for you"..."a mold is sprayed with cellulose resin..."....."printed food"...."tumors!!!!". It just gets worse and worse lol
The mycoproteins one is interesting. That stuff is available in Europe. Called Quorn. Could also be expanded into other meat analogues; soy, tempeh, gluten, and all that jazz. And in-vitro meat of course reminds of carcinoproteins.
Fascinated by that Versace strawberry! The only thing here I wouldn't mind trying. :)Go to Comment
It's one thing if the wielder is cowardly to begin with, like Xan was, but the beauty of the axe to me would be placing it in the hands of an already fearless, indomitable, celebrated warrior.
Suddenly, rumors begin spreading among his followers/soldiers. "Why is Cromrokk the Unconquerable Slayer whimpering again?"...
"Do we attack on the morrow, general?"
"Attack? Heavens no! That would be much too dangerous! And scary! We'd be slaughtered! Oh gods, I shudder at the thought!"
*Sigh* "Someone please find his blasted axe, before we're laughed off the battlefield!"Go to Comment
Oh Lordy. It's your world, can be whatever you say it is, and I see the impetus for this society based on your many CE posts, but...
This is not the future. Star Trek isn't an "example", it's one hollywood liberal's fantasy. The Native American analogy makes no sense.
Paint me a disgusting capitalist if you must, but no, this is not a natural evolution of the world economy.Go to Comment
