My inspiration was raking leaves yesterday and several times the fallen leaves resembled dead birds and small rats.

Then boom, ratwood and sparrow oak. Go to Comment
Ratwood Tree
Lifeforms  (Fauna)   (Forest/ Jungle)
Scrasamax's comment on 2013-10-26 10:55 AM
When the rat pods exhaust what food is available they are likely to swarm. And another thing to consider is that there is a cost for their mobility, they have a short lifespan as seeds. While a regular seed can survive dormant for a long time, rat tree seeds can only survive for a few weeks at the most before perishing.

And things that eat seeds are definitely going to be going after these running nuggets. Go to Comment

This is the sort of level of immersion that I see in the Cosmic Era setting, but rather than a global phenomenon, this is the sort of thing that is much more common inside the arcos, with semi- and permanently connected people in the CogNet working virtual/online jobs, or using the network to remote access a robot surrogate to do manual labor somewhere else.

Nice work, I like the concept of hackers stealing an entire city. Go to Comment
Seeking Vengeance; Adventurers Needed

An interesting and entertaining read, I like how much potential this adventure has for what I think of as entry level PCs, this isn't their first rodeo, but maybe the 3rd adventure. There is a chance that they can get their clocks cleaned, and making Latris as an enemy sets up a good arc for conflict. It also sets up Meritha as a potential base for the PCs with the good will of the rulers there, or leads into an adventure after the PCs and the rulers clash after the conflict with Latris.

Once it is thermally saturated, can it bleed off this heat in another process? Can it be handled by hand, or is it dangerous to touch? Can it be shaped into tools, or decorations? Go to Comment

That's #7 TPK

There are no happy endings. Judgement Day can not be averted, Freddy can not be killed, and sometimes the heroes are written down in history as criminals. Go to Comment

Awesome comment is awesome.

I like the exposition of the academic/disconnected perspective, and I would venture that the theme of corruption would probably be under nameless horror entry, and then link it back to the TPK as you mentioned. Very excellent discourse. Go to Comment

The Clowns Gang
Society/ Organizations  (Criminal/Espionage)   (Area)
Scrasamax's comment on 2013-09-30 11:27 PM
The Clowns are a gang of degenerates that have been used as the worst of the worst in my home game. In the home game, they rarely have any sort of leadership and it is a general carnival of chaos and mayhem. The history and background of the Clowns is somewhat unimportant in that context so the leadership role being filled by the various actors/personas that have played the Joker provided a figurehead for both leadership and for their history.

As for long term plans, as the Joker says, Do I look like the sort of guy who makes plans?

The things that set the Clowns apart from other gangs is that they are the bottom of the barrel, the most depraved, the most violent, and the most inhuman of all. They are involved in the drug trade, but on the bottom side up, peddling the worst sort of drugs, the sort that cause bodily harm by simple proximity like meth and bath salts. The thematic elements are the most obvious factor, with the circus/clown theme recurring over and over. The gang members lose themselves in those elements.

Operation Black Rain
Plots  (Hired)   (Multi-Storyline)
Scrasamax's comment on 2013-09-24 07:37 PM
For a moment I was all facepalm (being Texan and considering myself moderately ring wing) and remembering events like the Branch Davidian stand off. I was expecting something worse. I found myself surprised by the level of detail and didn't expect the facility to be under beneficial operation.

Considering the presence of sarin I would expect this to be DHS or NSA rather than DEA since I usually associate them with busting narcotics and not chemical weapons.

Also, I may be wrong on this count but I believe destroying chemical weapons is done via controlled incineration.

Final question:what general part of Texas is this facility in? Do they players have benefit of the great piney woods (east tx) or do they have to contend with desert wildlike and conditions (west, north Tx)? Go to Comment

This biomass is functionally ectoplasm, ephemeral material, that is 'bleeding' over into reality. Multiple dimensions, and dimension seepage are both not rare events in the cosmic era. The biomass is not targeting non-biological material, the biomass is the unintended consequence of arcanotechnology, it isn't a normal organism. Its cybernetic cancer.

As for being implausible, well thats the entire purpose of arcanotechnology; levitation, free energy, infinite heat dissipation, true mechanical sentience, copying people's memories, artificial brains, giant robots, exotic beam weapons, etc. It is supposed to be strange and disturbing. It isn't a slick shiny creature inhabiting the shell of a mecha, it is a mass of cancerous tissue, tapping into the conduit of human suffering and misery. Go to Comment
