The new feudalism thread contains information that has all already gone into the Cosmic Era setting. The new feudalism is the mentality that leads the world into the Resource Wars at the end of the Petroleum Age, and it's the mentality that the Cosmic Era rejects and projects at the same time. Supercomputers, megacorps, and other think tanks run everything and most places don't make a pretense of pretending to democracy. Democracy and the vote are tarnished by the legacy of the Petroleum Era. Go to Comment

AFS Charles Frost

The Frost is a scientific ship deployed by the Atlantic Federation, and is classified as a demi-ark. The ship is massive, just over 700 meters long, and 120,000 tons. It contains a full scientific facility, complete with AISC computer core and a Dimensional reactor power source. The main purpose of the Frost is oceanic surveying and biome recovery. The ship has massive inlets for drawing in water and filtering it, as well as extensive equipment for recovering samples or wreckage off the bottom of the ocean. The ship has a good deal of armor, but is almost completely unarmed. Should the ship require protection, it has to either call for assistance from the Federation Navy, or take aquatic mecha with it. This is almost never done unless the threat of piracy is high.

Sample missions have included recovering the rusting radioactive hulks of sunk warships, salvaging flying ships lost in action, harvesting and processing trash islands, and on rare ocassion clandestine work for the Federation Navy, spying on underwater activity in it's vicinity. Go to Comment

CIWS is relative to scale, in the Gundam SEED universe, CIWS are rotary barrel 75mm vulcans designed to shoot down missiles and space mecha that get to close to the warships.

A CIWS has a high rate of fire to fill a certain area of space to intercept and destroy fast moving inbound targets. Traditionally this involves missiles and other guided projectiles. Given the high velocities of these targets most CIWS are constantly active, as only a computer is going to respond fast enough to do anything about it. In the Falklands War, the British generally had less than 20 seconds to spot, identify, and respond to a harpoon missile launched at one of their ships. Go to Comment

I have differ with you in opinion. I grew up with the Transformers and while I agree that the animation, plot, and production value were terrible, the show brimmed with potential. The factions can be endlessly rewritten and revamped, and terms like mature and intellectual have no place in the original show. It was made and marketed to boys 5-10 years old. The new Michael Bay movies are little more than mindless explodium and slow motion boob running intended to play off of a generation that grew up with the old cartoon, slathered with cgi and equally bad plots. I have no desire to do anything with the new transformers movies. Go to Comment

I like the presentation, and the layers of the art, ranging from the base to the elitist, and can easily see this being a thing in the Cosmic Era, what with all the body modification, and ranging like you show, from hoity-toity effete displays to the vulgar and crass demonstration.

Nicely done.

I'm thinking about puttimg out a quick list of Nekkid performers for the CE Go to Comment

Axle pretty much summed it up nicely. I don't know how much would end up in aircraft, since most aircraft, even in WWII were either wood or aluminum. Not a lot of iron ends up in fighters, and the old iron isn't going to be alloyed with aluminum, because the two metals do not mix. Go to Comment

The fey angle doesn't need much more coverage than it already has, a fairie curse is a fairie curse, just like a deal with the devil is a deal with the devil. If you can already use a fae crossed assassin in your setting, you can already fill in the details, and as mentioned above, they aren't really needed for running the NPC in a game.

Solid character, useful and useable, and the fey angle is interesting because it gives the DM leeway to do things he shouldn't otherwise do, and can hand wave it as part of the fey curse. Go to Comment

Well written, and solid character. I would be fine with using her plug-n-play in just about any modern or futuristic game. I like the OCD aspect, which would be the main place where I would make things fun if she was being used as a pregen, or the players would be exploiting.

The PCs discover that none of the marks were killed in the squalor of the streets, or in loud chaotic places. They were all killed in safe houses, in transit vehicles, under police custody, and otherwise meticulously cared for. Go to Comment

This is probably not going to win any points, but I think you spent too much time on the backstory. If you made it more concise, you would have room to give more detail on what Rye can actually do as an undead, and why he is special enough to rise six times instead of just the once that most undead get. Still a good submission, and entertaining read. Go to Comment

Skill Tabs
Items  (Books and Scrolls)   (Non-Magical)
Scrasamax's comment on 2015-09-25 10:59 PM
Very interesting, and I am considering how to port these into the Cosmic Era. I can see them not being used for squirting a new skill into your brain, but rather boosting an existing skill. Spread the net far, basic understanding of a wide variety of skills makes it easy for using skill-boosting tabs as needed, such as a sniper popping a marksmanship tab a moment before taking a critical shot, or a hacker boosting his on the fly coding skill for a few minutes while he gatecrashes a server. Fun stuff that!

Who do they look like?
How do you use it, as in how does it reach the chip in your brain?
How expensive are they?
Once a scan is done, can new tabs just be made from that?
How hard are they to get?
What about criminal skills, how available are those?
What controls would you put on this to prevent player abuse? Go to Comment
