The Cursed Cup of Immortality
Items  (Potion)   (Cursed)
Scrasamax's comment on 2015-12-30 02:22 PM
Update: Not going to finish this one, but the basic premise was that the cup was actually a cursed relic that was found and used by villains and such as a trap. Those who drink from the cup are granted immortality, but only so long as they regularly use the cup, and while they cling to life, they lose their will to live, are overcome by ennui, melancholy, or otherwise eventually chose to end their own lives, but generally not before causing a good deal of carnage along the way.

I'm open to suggestions because I'm not happy with the name, it is clunky, doesn't abbreviate well, and feels like something Apple would use to describe the design philosophy behind a light switch. Go to Comment

In the Cosmic Era I can see there being a blurry line between what is acceptable genetic modification, such as genefixing, or the outlandish but rather harmless stuff like making yourself look like a cat, elf, or dranaei? and what is making a weaponized human.

Most nations and organizations capable of genetic modification kinda crap all over the no supersoldiers edict from the Tycho convention, mostly because the conventions are kinda like the League of Nations, looks good on paper, but has no clout, no teeth, to enforce it's rulings. Go to Comment

What was the movie where the old guy was murdered, and the only thing they could talk to was a hologram of him, and if they asked the wrong question, it could only say 'my responses are limited'? Same basic concept, and totally. Go to Comment
Gesund Auf
Items  (Other)   (Campaign Defining)
Scrasamax's comment on 2015-12-28 03:59 PM
There is a security firm in place, and it largely originates from the machine intelligences that networked the CogNet together. I do need to elaborate on them, but they are basically the 'gods' behind the network, and are one of the reasons that the same network is available regardless of what country you are in. There are private security firms, there are national and international security firms, and like a living organism, there are AISC generated security systems. For the most part, hacking someone's gesund is as likely as someone having their pacemaker hacked. Another layer is that everyone who has a gesund also has a Muse, and to hack into the gesund, any hacker would have to get through that first, without it being able to alert anyone or anything.

I would also posit that there is going to be something along the lines of biological encryption, in that you wouldn't be able to hack into something like someone's cyberware without having access to their genetic information. Go to Comment

Good questions, and it really depends on who is asking. If the corporate sponsor is asking, just the original meme in it's intended purpose. From a cultural or societal angle, all the variations would be valid. Go to Comment
Polyforge
Items  (Tools)   (Campaign Defining)
Scrasamax's comment on 2015-12-28 03:52 PM
Most things are only going to be made of one material, and stuff like metal is going to be very fine powder suspended in a gel. The cartridges is accurate, but larger forges are likely to use holding tanks or material hoppers to feed them, but these are machines that aren't printing out pens and paperclips, but armor in pieces and other pre-fab construction materials. A liquid hauling vehicle could offload it's cargo, cement truck style, into an industrial hopper, which feeds the forge, and on the other side, construction mecha remove the extruded girders, because again like cement, it's all in the mix.

Archery in the Cosmic Era

Scrasamax's comment on 2015-12-26 09:49 AM
The Atlantic Federation is very large, and while it might seem like a lot has gone into their archery program, it's a drop in the ocean compared to the funding that's gone into flying warships, space stations, supersoldier programs and so forth. Go to Comment

If we can genetically engineer plants to be sterile and self-terminating, I see no reason for why in 350 years we can't make a flash drive that deletes itself the first time you use it, or a program that one of the core codes is deletion while it is running. You can't run it without deleting it, and it's not corps running this DRM, it's the hackers and other underground groups doing it, so there is every chance that if you did manage to get around the self-deletion, there is likely a nasty virus or hack waiting for you.

Phantom Wood
Lifeforms  (Unique)   (Tundra/ Arctic)
Scrasamax's comment on 2015-12-12 11:49 PM
I quite imagine the Phantom Wood in the same manner as the Elementals from Chronicles of Riddick. When the air is still the trees are the most visible, but when it blows, they become increasingly hard to see as their visible form is seemingly blown away. I also like that you provide several explanations as to what the trees actually are, but leave enough room that people trying to use it can either pick the one they like, or use all of the answers presented as red herrings for the players to chase.

Finally, I enjoyed the old school vibe of the break down of the quasi-plant and it's uses in terms of wondrous materials and spell components. Go to Comment

That's shudder inducing, to say the least.

But that's got me thinking, what about necropants made from non-humans, such as the Troll leggings of the ogre-magi Nudnik the Gregarious? Go to Comment

I like the idea, and the use of the note cards for tracking PC rep and NPC rep is handy and doesn't look like it would require too much work. I think this is a solid idea, and certainly something to rein in the murder-hobos when they start getting a little too murdery Go to Comment

Flammable exploding spiders of unusual size, that weave huge shatterable webs that they herd prey into, and their glands and venom are lucrative to extract? Fantastic!
