Of all of Cosmic Era submissions, I find this one the scariest.

The target could be inanimate, and you could tie a note to the arrow :P

This is one way to make the Oculas a lot more practical. Thinner, lighter, more durable. Really its a logical progression.

As for vulnerability to digital hacking, it would not be hard to work in analog displays as well as non-digital fiber optic channels.

You could also have smart materials which can shift between opaque and clear, which could switch between full VR (full opacity with display), none (full transparency) or augmented reality (full transparency + display).

He's in work, but here's his current physical description:

Illdus appears as a well-to-do middle-aged merchant, perhaps one with ties to, or at least aspirations towards nobility. Tall, thin and straight backed, with salt-and-pepper hair and a flamboyant mustache, he stands out in a crowd. He speaks loudly and almost always passionately on whatever issue has caught his attention at that point in time, and frequently rails against vice and sloth.

Those who deal with him behind closed doors see him as a profane, foolish, vice-ridden hypocrite - he accepts bribes, drinks heavily, and is frequently with escorts.

There is a third layer to him, the truth hidden by a clumsy lie, and the careful lie. He is not the slightest bit foolish or emotional. The thin public face, his weak 'private' face lie about a true private face of steel. Go to Comment

One could find their own pockets populated by something from when wearing this cloak.

Ring of Subtle Injury
Items  (Jewelry)   (Cursed)
valadaar's comment on 2016-04-04 02:08 PM
I see no problem with a cursed ring with no upside. There are far worse dangers out there.

An alternate origin of this ring could be the Ring of Penance. Same effects, but its religious in nature, and used by monks/priests/pilgrims to show their devotion.

Good stuff and welcome aboard!

Neat NPC. Feels like some of the over the top characters in anime, which I believe was the intent :)

7 Things About Food in the Cosmic Era
Articles  (Setting Building)   (Gaming - Genre)
valadaar's comment on 2016-02-22 09:39 AM
Good article, though the carciomeat seems a bit unnecessarily grim - cultured meat is getting close to being a real thing now, and to my understanding, they have not needed to defeat the bioregulation of cell growth. I would expect that such tissue would make very poor 'meat' due to the chaotic nature of cancer cells.

Also, I would add Designer Game creatures to the list. Related to the GE plants, we have GE animals now, and I expect the cosmic era would allow for even more strange and exotics beasts to eat.

"...the city was built on many levels, linked by stone bridges. But with the improvements in diet and corresponding increase in stature and strength of the populace, these bridges became too low, and the people would hit their heads. The bridges were eventually done away with in 1764, but the scars on the walls where they once jutted out remain, and in Low Bridge Street there is still one extant bridge, measuring about 6' high." - Chronicler Rasill, Mondopedia, Vol II (The Lands of Hyellia)
