A great detailing of the battlemech in the Cosmic Era. The addition of details like maintenance schedules really adds to the depth.

Cool with great details. I'd bold the heading but aside from that, really solid.

Vitralara, the Mongrelmen

valadaar's comment on 2013-08-16 09:05 AM
A great rework of those mongrelmen. This makes them much more usable and a better fit in the world.

For non-fantasy, one could use these as an outcome of consumer-grade biogenetics.

Dorgen's Hammer
Items  (Melee Weapons)   (Sentient)
valadaar's comment on 2013-08-15 12:25 PM
I like the delayed effects - makes for perhaps anime-ish combat scene.

The dwarf runs among a group of stone monsters, striking one, than another, then another. He runs clear and takes cover for a moment as as one, they all shatter...

Given its described as an Artifact, a term that conveys special meaning for me, and so I would amp up the power a little:

Multiple symbols could be used concurrently, but each one pending would draw upon the hammer holders vigour and attention.

To get mechanical, after 3 rounds, the hammer wielder would need to make a willpower check to keep from letting them go. A natural 1 on a check would discharge the symbols without effect.

The check would be at a -2 penalty for each symbol so held. For damage, I would multiply it by # rounds/2 capping at 5x damage. When max damage (5x) is discharged, I'd also add a thunderclap special effect :)

(13:57:46) valadaar: I think the point blank range increment would balance off using no sights.
(13:58:04) valadaar: Though I'd be tempted to give you a -4...
(13:58:15) Gossamer: Is that a feat?
(13:58:30) valadaar: Have to check.. It would seem to make sense.
(13:59:26) valadaar: I think I'd put a -2 on scoped weapons used without the scope.
(13:59:37) valadaar: Since the scope interferes with aiming.
(13:59:55) valadaar: There is a seperate feat for +1 at point blank
(14:00:03) Gossamer: Makes sense, you can't really fire a rifle from the hip anyways...not very good at least.
(14:00:26) Gossamer: But at melee though...
(14:00:37) Gossamer: Poke* Blam.
(14:00:49) valadaar: But the rifle is also easy to grab.
(14:00:56) valadaar: no so much with pistol
(14:01:01) Gossamer: Hmm, yeah. Good Point.
(14:01:16) Gossamer: Unless it was an animal.
(14:01:21) valadaar: Get inside the rifle, and its a wrestling match
(14:02:21) Gossamer: Carnegie is pretty much the opposite of Verity. In so many ways.

Feels very Creepshow. I like it - though it would need a little adaptation to use without causing a TPK - getting PCs not to loot can be difficult :)

This one needs a bit more - it was just getting going when I scrolled into the comments.

I hoped for more about

" Their aren't as many ghosted workers as rumors and fear represent, but there are always some and they are highly valued as their deaths provide a necessary benefit, and a requirement, in certain mines."

What _is_ the benefit? A bounty for working the prisoner to death? Go to Comment

Agree with Strolen on these points, my only concern is how is thermal radiation addressed? Go to Comment

valadaar's comment on 2013-08-02 12:29 PM
Right, but unless you dump that heat _somewhere_ the shielded object will eventually roast itself. I could imagine that you could either bring a large stock of something like frozen Hydrogen and use that for cooling, shunt it into another dimension, since metaphysics appears to be okay in the Cosmic Era, or a highly directional vent. Basically there is one angle at which the object emits infrared strongly. Surface structures would be the easiest since they could vent the head into the ground.

Not bad, though I've found scripted endings rather unpopular with players.

I could not help but think of the Skelebots from Rifts when I saw this one, but they fit in so well with your world.

Now that I think of it, the Rifts system would fit the Cosmic Era very, very well.

This is a good city description - it paints it well.

It does go into more detail then other City Image submissions.

As for triangular cities, there are some Triangular Castles
