Sporadically, and of variable intensity and duration.

The shortest timeframe is one day, there aren't occurrences shorter than that. Long term the fits don't last more than a few days to a few weeks for a bad one.

Nature has adapted poorly, this is apocalyptic

I would venture to guess that the Resistance/Rebels want legitimacy and state recognition, and today suicide attacks aren't heroic or brave but are instead the calling card of terrorists and religious extremists.

I'm sure hyperdriving a Mon Cal cruiser through the Death Star would have done damage, it would have reduced the Rebels to insurgents and terrorists.

The A-wing taking out the Executor class in RotJ was accidental success while Holdo's run was desperate, and the rest thing she could do with the Raddus to save rebel lives. Go to Comment

Yes, you could do all of those things, but that would take Star Wars out of being Space Opera/Space Fantasy and move it into the realm of Military fiction. Military fiction doesn't have room for X-wings, Jedi knights, the Force, or light sabers.

Death Star? We just need a sufficiently large hyperspace capable penetrator and we can blow a hole through your planet, sort of like the Sun Crusher plotline, but way less cinematic and much more brutal and pragmatic.

Much less fun, much less adventure Go to Comment

Drunk Writers Guild Footnote and Author's note - being shoved in a Bioforge is PAINFULL!

The machine doesn't care if it hurts, and it is brute force reimagining and reorganizing your biomass.

The item itself is just kind of there, but the concept of a sculptor using his art to spy on his wealthy and noble patrons is fantastic. It could even be used as a Xanatos Gambit, where the statue is made, with the intent of being stolen, so that the commissioner could easily spy on those who stole it, through such a magic item.

Well done. Go to Comment

Solid idea. I like it, and I like the variety of reasons it was made being given.

I would add that if someone knows that another person is wearing one of these rings, and they have the proper mental discipline, they can cheat the mind skimming power of the ring. A high level thief or assassin would certainly have the opportunity to resist this, or spoof it, depending on their skill. If they are unsuspecting, then they are no better prepared to resist.

I would suggest giving us 3-5 specific bramblebeasts, and give us some details about them, what sets them apart, and so forth. Brambleboars have big woody tusks and are drawn to agriculture too close to their domain, where they proceed to literally tear even the ground apart, leaving bramble spouts in their wake.

i like the visual, and the tree being an anchor between the living and spirit world. I would like some more meat on these bones though. The Geistspeakers sound cool, and I also like the many uses that the wood of this tree would lend itself to. Go to Comment

Standard Template Construction Installation

The Standard Template Construction Short Range Ballistic Missile Concealed Operations Base is far less complicated than it's name sounds. The installation is built into an abandoned building, the side of a mountain, the rusting hulk of a ship, or anywhere that the 800 square foot structure can be put. It houses a single short range ballistic missile, and has an operating staff of 6: a commander, two communications officers, and three enlisted who cover everything from basic duty to security. The COB also has communications functions, and has access to secure line of communication. Most of the time it is a listening post with heavy strike capability.

These small COBs were built in many places around the world. They also experimented with different weapons, changing the SRBM for interceptor missile batteries, anti-aircraft missiles, and cruise missiles. These proved effective generally once, and then their location was revealed. With their missile expended and cover blown, most COBs would be deliberately destroyed by their staff who would then try to escape into native territory rather than attempt to 'Alamo' the COB.

During the end of the Resource Wars, a fair number of these COBs were abandoned by their staff, who feared being left behind in a foreign hostile country more than they feared their weapons falling into enemy hands. A few were destroyed by the deserters, but far too many were left intact. During the nameless disjointed holocaust that ended the Resource Wars, captured COBs and their weapons were used to horrifying effect. Short range nukes were used to settle local disputes, and cities were blasted down to the bedrock. Others were doused in nerve gas. Millions died, and the damage and suffering caused gave birth to the wastelands, and the Wastelanders.

Amerikka Command still makes use of this type of COB as a one shot deterrent to Federation aerospace assets. While the DMZ treaty with the Pacific Rim Coalition limits the tonnage of war material either side can deploy, the Command's pop-up pocket nuke anti-ship missiles provide a much more stringent limit. To the Command, the lose of a COB is inconsequential to the spectacle of either destroying a Federation warship, or blowing a massive hole in one.

Whiskey Tango Fort

Originally called a Mobile Infantry Pre-Fab Fort, the structure became so infamous by it's colloquial name that no one outside of jargon aficionados uses the real name. Whiskey Tango is a slang term for 'wasting time', a general response for being posted to a mobile STC like the infantry fort.

A STC WTF has an armor wall with a raised walkway, an interior courtyard with pop-up barracks, supply depot, and a large amount of open space. At each wall intersection, there is a barbette with a heavy weapon system. As the WTFort lacks a large power core, these weapons tend to be conventional firearms like rifled cannons, rather than lasers or energy weapons.

WTF roles

Infantry support - if the boots need to be on the ground, the WTF functions as an infantry base, allowing everything from a squad to an entire division to bivouac in place. The modular design allows for a WTF to be made to almost any size, as it is largely walls and barbettes that are linked together. Some large WTFs had walls within the walls, creating more complicated fort designs. These tended to be used more for training purposes but also ended up being used as garrison positions for suppressing local rebellions and uprisings. Given the volatile nature of the world when the first WTFs were deployed, their wrecks can be found almost anywhere.

Fire Support - a garrison of infantry and an armored wall around grouped artillery pieces or missile batteries

VTOL Support - infantry garrison protecting a helicopter depot.

MASH - infantry garrison protecting a mobile hospital.

Fortressing - an advanced form of castling, a pre-con tactical base is placed in the center of a WTF facility. As the pre-con has an integral power core, the WTF can replace conventional guns in favor of beam weaponry.

While WTFs weren't used for deploying weapons of mass destruction, the majority that were not destroyed came to host regional and ethnic forces, and became focal points of bandit kings and wasteland warlords through the Second Dark Age. Junker cities would spring up, and blow away around these forts as the occasion called for, and many of the 'caravansary' stops on the Silk Road. In many of these places the WT is long since rubble, but the spirit they engendered remains.

How about a dragon how cheerfully rules over a kingdom; his people all know him for what he is, and dragons are looked upon as wise and benevolent creatures. Dragonslayers from other kingdoms coming to free it from 'tyranny' are likely to get beaten to death by peasants with cast iron skillets.
