Okay, I googled Marcellus Washington and I got Andre Braugher, so then I googled the next similar name that came to mind and got Marcellus Wallace and that was totally not who I thought it was. I thought Wallace was Samuel Jackson from Pulp Fiction (which I haven't seen).

How I reached the name: Mark - common name, boring, also my FiL. Marcellus, now fancified Mark. That'll do. I have dug into the historical American names, founders and stuff, and Washington just seemed like a good fit.

So what is wink wink? I've missed that exhibit Go to Comment

Samuel Jackson - Jules Winfield, Pulp Fiction
Ving Rhames - Marcellus Wallace, Pulp Fiction.

Marcellus is an uncommon name, but it is statistically more common in my game settings as I tend to strongly avoid the first names of people in my immediate and near family (spouse, parents, siblings, in-laws) and there is a Mark in my family. And we don't get along. So there are Marcus, Marcellus, Marco, etc. Go to Comment

Tarxan Hound

Tarxan hounds are all tough and ill-tempered as their masters. The hounds are mammal-like reptiles, having a warm blooded metabolism and upright gait, but scales and are egg layers. They exhibit a range of coloration, with the females being dull drab colors and the male hounds being brightly colored, with reds, blues, oranges, and purple being common.

The hound has a separated bottom jaw, which allows it to use either side of its bottom jaw independently. Once they bite onto something they can work the jaw until they have a very solid bite. It is assumed that this is a hunting or fighting technique used to wound or slow larger animals until their masters can dispatch the animal with swords or spears. Go to Comment

Tarxan Encounter Table

Tarxan Raider - A single Tarxan, armed with forearm blades and a bad attitude. The Raider is disoriented and will attack with fury, and anything it cannot overcome quickly it will flee. 

Tarxan Raider Party - An equal or greater number of Tarxan raiders to the PC party. All are armed with varying sized arm scythes as well as carrying their own bladed melee weapons. They have some provisions, and chemical  augments (functions as Chemical Augmentation Suit) and possibly several Tarxan hounds (triple jawed reptilian wolf/lizard things)

Tarxan Hunting Party - Foragers and hunters more than warriors, less than half have arm blades, but are armed with spears and hunting bows, accompanied by at least one pack of tarxan hounds.

Tarxan Family Cell - A single Tarxan warrior, decorated with trophies and tattoos along with a harem of Tarxan females, ranging from middle teens to later middle age. The warrior is skilled and dangerous, and has the desire to protect his wives and multitude of children.

Tarxan Mystic - A hybrid half Tarxan half something else, manifests limited parapsychic abilities, typically Parapsychic healing, or parasensensory abilities used to 'guide' the mystic and the tribe.

Tarxan Feral - A survivor from a previous dimensional breech, this Tarxan has survived on Earth long enough to learn a bit of the common local language and hide from the locals by posing as a leper or other pariah.

Sharma notes and issued letters of credit would be impeccable, and any planetary bank in a space faring society is going to handle the predominant currency as well as the valuable non-widespread currencies, such as forms of money used on worlds that refuse to accept offworld funds. Go to Comment

There are several dozen submissions associated with the setting, and a core concept is mixing the high energy and over the top action of fighting games with normal RPGs. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2013-06-24 10:56 AM
Good idea, and good execution, and this is something that I can totally use in my own setting. In my setting Surya would be a regional corp that hasn't quite made the jump to AAA rated Megacorp, and it's power generation in India fits in well with the subcontinent retaining its independence without joining any of the New Earth Governments. Offworld subsidies would be space stations and colonies in the solar system, and would be very limited.

The major world players in the power generation scene are building and operating fusion reactors, and dimensional engines while alternative power is sitting in it's usual back seat.

Nicely done. Go to Comment

Parapsychic abilities are functionally 'mutant' powers that you are either born with and manifest through puberty or develop after being exposed to high levels of strange radiation emitted by arcanotechnology or cosmic contamination. Creating artificial parapsychic power is a major goal of the cosmic era world governments and has thus far met with failure or worse results. Go to Comment

Incomplete

I cannot find the right voice to carry the Mecha of the Cosmic Era. The more I have delved into the setting, while the giant machines are impressive and highly visible, they are increasingly not that important on a great level. The main level of conflict is being fought on the infantry scale, more emulating the chivalry of the medieval era than the massed tank and armor battles of WWII and Iraqi conflicts. Go to Comment

There are a variety of power sources, and I was going to delve into them in the engine section.

Arc Reactors (mini-hydrogen tokamaks)
Batterys and umbilical cables for working machines
Dimensional Engines (Arcanotech)
Fission Reactors for really big things that aren't worried about weight

The Tangaroa were going to be a riff on the traditional green tail mermaid, having a barbarian hunter/gatherer culture, the main merfolk that surface dwellers deal with, rather than the benthic mer, or the cecaelia Go to Comment
