The Hanging Garden of Earthly Delights

The biggest problem with modern cloning is the materials and processes being used are mired in a mentality and mindset that is a century out of date. There is no reason to be producing utility clones and meretrix clones in med-pods that are cutting edge. The newest innovation from Vetmuara is the polybag womb. The old cloning tanks are large constructions of glass and steel, with a variety of advanced systems hooked to it. The Vetmuara polybag is a synthetic plastic tube not much larger than a adult human. The bags are hung from a ceiling, and the occupant is hooked into a gravity feed system, nutrient solution in the top, waste out the bottom.

The bag farms are terrible places, with human clones incubating in their plastic wombs. The air is humid and hot, 98.7 degrees fahrenheit, and close to 90% humidity. There is also a constant cloying organic smell, a mixture of waste and chlorine, amniotic gel and nutrient paste. The bags get tight as the clones inside grow to adult size. Walking through a production facility there are elbows and shoulders pressed into the plastic, and if the contents are female, there are breasts flattened against the plastic.

The floors are grates, with walkways. The bags can be drug through an overhead track system, or move through basic automation. When something goes wrong, the techs just cut the bag open and let the clone fall out of it, a miscarriage from a machine. The fluids drain out into a collection center, and the body is sent to recycling.

Nutrient Paste - primarily derived from synthetic human protein. The new clones are fed a paste made from the corpses of old clones, augmented with nutritional supplements.

Nicely done, nicely done. I enjoyed the read, and how everything came together at the end, how the magic works, all of it. Go to Comment

I've not delved into it, but Equatorial Africa, Kinshasa and Lagos are major economic and cultural influences on the Atlantic Federation. Go to Comment

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

Update: Incomplete and exiled from in work.

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

I wrote it as a 30 because that was the initial point of inspiration, it was going to be a regular 30 and then I thought of the different tiers and how they worked in layers. Go to Comment

I like it, a staple magic item, a good backstory, hubris, and a pair of characters who would be mythic or historical figures. Well done. Go to Comment

So the ACPS and the USSA are going to field good armor just from their basic mineral resources.

What about the mineral resources from offworld sources? Specifically, the Moon, Mars, and asteroids? Go to Comment
