There are some seriously good plot hooks here, especially for midrange or higher level PCs. While a bit tedious in places, overall good. I would like to see a bit of fluff bring some of these scenes to life. Go to Comment
7 Types of Nanobots

There are some interesting ideas here, some that need to be fleshed out. I do apologize about taking so long to respond. This is something that could feasibly fit into the Cosmic Era (albeit in a controlled environment, like a nanobot lab, with the patient resting in a medical pod, rather than a shoot in the arm and rock on with it)

I liked the Cure Itch Nanos, especially in the context of hacking them into 'Cause Itch' nanobots, so that dozens or hundreds of ceremonial soldiers could be reduced to rolling around like dogs halfway through a formal military parade for a dictator, sending the tin pot tyrant into a rage, and kicking off the rebellion.

I think several others missed their potential, because unless the PCs have a debilitating blood or heart disorder, or are paraplegic the blood and nerve nanos are useless. You can swing them around and have the blood nanobots make the blood more efficient, giving them more athletic stamina, or having enhanced clotting abilities keeping even lethal wounds from killing them.

Had this idea to run something like the entire background of the Annunaki and the inner mysteries of the Cosmic Era through the initiation of a new member of the secret society, and basically lost the momentum of the piece. Also, the Meena Ascendant was just too weird to work as a character, but the interaction and visuals were too entertaining, and ghoulish to let go. Go to Comment

Dimensional Science

The study of natural phases and other dimensions is classified as Dimensional Science. Within this field, the people who study it refer to themselves as Exologists, or add the exo- prefix to whatever their field of expertise happens to be. Many of these are easily laughed off as being as serious as cryptozoolists, conspiracy theorists, or ancient astronaut researchers. The truth of the matter is that once someone has reached the point in their studies that they can consider themselves an exobotanist, they are very likely a leading or cutting edge figure in the non-exo application of their field of study. There are certainly loons to be found, but they generally lack the internal connections and funding to be anything other than comic figures, or counter-culture celebrities.


The study of other dimensions leads to the exploration of other dimensions. Those men and women who attempt to physically travel to the hypothetical realms are named Exonauts. The mortality rate of Exonauts is astronomically high, and the few that have returned alive almost never return sane. To those who pursue the field, they draw comparisons to the first peoples who tried to build boats, lots of them failed, lots of them died, and they were probably also mocked and ridiculed, at least until they figured out the business of crossing oceans.

The heliopause is the edge of the Solar system, where the Sun's solar wind meets the stellar medium. It's is a huge distance from the Sun, the planets are very well and deep in it. Go to Comment

Scorpion Quad

A fairly conventional quaddie, the Scorpion combines the upper torso of a standard combat droid with a four legged chassis. The larger chassis houses a robust generator and other equipment, giving the machine a decent range and combat endurance. The arms of the droid are typically replaced with auto-rifle gun-arms. Scorpions are low end, low cost machines. They are used in underworld locations, and in slums where they are tended to by clocksmith tinkers.

Scorpions are old, you can find the wrecks of them out in the desert. Someone built them in the thousands decades ago, maybe even a couple of centuries ago. Guts are robust, easy to fix. Autocannon arms use conventional ammo, not hard to put them back to work.

The use of something like the agonizer is the hallmark of a brutal totalitarian dictatorship. Despite the things going on behind the scenes with the PRC and the AtFed, they are still the torchbearers of western civilization. Is there bad shizz going on, is there exploitation and horrors being inflicted on people, absolutely. But that is true of the US since before its inception.

But I feel that almost by default all governments are corrupt and to some extent, evil. Thus the good guy government is either the lesser of available evils, or the best at hiding it. Go to Comment

The Realm of Shadow is an interesting pastiche of places from across the Magic the Gathering multiverse. I like the concept, but I have a number of issues with this. The main thought it that you've taken the places referenced in the card game and used them without in some way, making them your own. I know about Castle Sengir (and the Sengir vampires, and the terrible Baron who rules them) just like I know the deep, rich, and disturbing stories of Phyrexia, and how their word for pain is the exact same for evolution. This depth doesn't come across in the submission.

I have also used the locations from Magic, and other fantasy references in my own home games, but I have made changes to them, done things to make them my own. And I would like to see the same from you.


The Lake of the Dead, which I have always placed in Tresserhorn (Alliances set).

The Lake of the Dead is the heart of Tresserhorn, a section of the Realm of Shadows already known for being overrun by the undead. Legions of dead, sworn to the necromancer Lim-Dul walk the land, while those undead unaligned with Lim-Dul or any other necrolord become rotting gangrenous predators. The Lake of the Dead carries it's name because in the lands of the living, those who die and are placed in boats and sent down the river eventually find their way to the lake. Their shades rise, wreathed in funeral glory, and armed with the shades of their old arms and spells, and are the unstoppable army of death. They wait, for what, no one has learned, but when they draw their dead steel, it is believed that it will be the end of the mortal world Go to Comment
