I dig these guys, and think it is interesting how much predetermination there is in their society, and I like the notion of these gaunt creatures keeping packs of slaves to do their bidding.

Scrasamax's comment on 2014-02-06 12:02 PM
The Hypernet was largely supported by large federal powers, and it was crippled by twin blows from the collapse of cheap energy to keep the server farms and relays humming, and by the break down and subsequent collapse of the federal superstates. Without cheap power, the cost of powering the hardware side fell in favor of keeping vital services and utilities running. Do you want internet, or do you want refrigeration and hospital services. On the federal side, the infrastructure itself fell. Not so much the servers, but things like overland lines, cables through mountainous areas, and under the water.

The Hypernet fell, becoming scattered continental networks, and then as the infrastructure collapsed (no one is maintaining highways and transcontinental data lines when the major concerns are agriculture, dwindling medical supplies, and a massive increase in poverty, banditry, drug abuse, and general lawlessness) those networks became state/province level. Eventually the only thing that survived were the networks inside the arcos, and arco to arco secured communication. Go to Comment

An enjoyable read, I like how the culture comes across with both exotic and fantastic elements but also things that are very familiar. I also liked the hodgepodge collision of multiple pantheons creating their own hybrid religions, and the non-standard roles of the medicine folk, being favored and outcaste depending on location and time of day.

The division of the magic into the green, blue, and red was an interesting concept, and I like it, and I can easily see pulling spell lists, or clerical domains out of it for making characters.

The only thing missing is a summary where you pull all the points together in a neat numbered or bullet pointed list.

I'd recommend doing this because that is the only thing keeping this from being a 5 Go to Comment

Make it a list or something where I can see the entire process without having to scroll, list the steps without embellishment, without examples. You've got the examples and dissection already done above, and if you're read the sub you've got the meat and potatoes of it. Go to Comment

Union Aerospace Corporation is a major player in the Atlantic Federation, and while the corp hails from the Doom franchise, I have expanded their portfolio in the Cosmic Era to include not just Doom material, but Starcraft material as well, specifically (also obviously) the Terran faction.

OCP is currently in litigation against UAC over the UAC 'Goliath' program which has been stolen from the OCP ED-209 series of police droids. Go to Comment

Keep in mind that this is Lovercraft/Call of Cthulhu, so the gods and goddesses are much more wads of viscera, tentacles, and madness inducing horrific amalgams of strange varieties and unknown types of creatures.

I absolutely love it. It brings something unique to the fantasy realm in a replicable and very usable fashion. Great for thieves, acrobats, assassins, ninjas and even more adventurous characters.

Humor: dwarf parkour
horror: tiefling parlour

The Second Renaissance
Articles  (Resource)   (Gaming - Genre)
Scrasamax's comment on 2014-01-14 01:14 AM


Author's Note: It is easy to point out that the idea of the O2 towers, and the cooperation fostered by their construction, and the fact that they worked goes against the grain of the Cosmic Era setting and the writing guide. While it is true, there was a beneficial outcome, there is a certain degree of cost involved. The collectivism and the human hives are a direct result of the towers and the O2 scare. The financial cost of building the processing towers was immense, and their operating budget, along with the 3rdNet that grew from them was also stunning.



The Shinjuku Tower cost Nippon close to $1 trillion dollars to construct, and had an operational budget of $125 billion a year afterwards. The island nation staggered through several economic defaults before being propped up by the Red Sun bank and electing the Emperor to replace the existing government. Hundreds died in riots, and several hundreds more committed suicide in varying fashions (alcoholism, drug overdose, seppuku) over the economic flounderings.



The entire Pan-Asian basin went through an economic collapse as they struggled to support the cost of the mammoth towers, along with the continual construction of arcologies, seacologies, geofronts and participating in the space race. As the Renaissance lurched forward, an increasing number of people were born into what will become generational poverty, filling the favelas, creating the hive like urban rims, and feeding into the criminal underground and illegal syndicates.
