Point of Order, young man I feel the need to point out the Bedazzler existed long before the 1990s.
Nice footnote, as some color to the setting (and for some reason strikes me as icky).
Might they use this technology in prisons, militaries or cults. If you can tie the color threads to the CNS it might make easier to control and monitor the moods of your members and/or prisoners. What is the underground city you made up? The one in the middle east run by a torture cult that uses human suffering to power their technology? I could see those guys putting this stuff into themselves and their prisoners (ie show off how much pain they are really in and push button suffering complete with black light effects and strobes)Go to Comment
This is a neat one. I like the torture fueled technologies...
well I am not literally fond of or excited by the idea, but I like seeing sadistic evil finally having practical applications...
well not that I think we should find practical uses for sadism-seriously Scras all praise for this may put me on a watch list.
There are all also some really great pieces of descriptive writing in here as well. Example: "The walls are metal that sweats, there are damp pools, there are scuttling things, and the constant grind of hum of alien machinery"
Animism and tribalism are also interesting concepts that present one with something that could be expanded upon.
It took me a couple of tries to get this, the structure is a little clunky and it lacks a human touch aka lacks characters or personality. It would be enhanced by more detailed ethnographies of the notable tribes, subcultures or some notable figures.Go to Comment
