Now, this just reeks of cyberpunk - an elegant human modification that is useful, and at the same time twisting the very human soul... very fitting the genre (and of course it could be turned into fantasy magical item or spell with the same problems attached).

A few things:
- we have already a 'Cyberpunk' freetext with a few items items, you might want to use that
- how is it precisely controlled? Is there a switch, or merely a mental command? And most importantly: how many settings are available - is it only 'normal' vs. slowed, or are there several to choose from; or can be the perception adjusted on a scale?


The OP might be immensely useful back at school... I would be tempted to try it. :) Go to Comment

Well done wetware submission, and the checks and balances for cyberpunk are all there, improved reations at the cost of your sanity. I like how it is also presented as an alternative to more invasive options. Kudos. Go to Comment

Innovative, gadget-y, fun.

It read like an advertisement from the sixties (I actually read it with a "sixties commercial voice" in "the back of my head"). Go to Comment

Wow. I'm not sure whether this would be worth the cost, in terms of paranoia and other mental issues. Besides, I pride myself on my natural speed of mind and body. I'm sure there would be at least one or two people in any cyberpunk scenario who would feel the same way. "I might not have my original arm, but at least my brain is all mine."

Very creative idea though. I kinda wish there was some more meat, but this one does get across the concept and purpose. Go to Comment

I think this is great!

And yes, there are times when I'd want this one as well. Go to Comment
5D Shunt

manfred's comment on 2007-06-15 06:19 PM
No problem with the reality aspect at all, we are today much more open to scifish subs. But of course we can find something else to pick on. :)

Besides wanting to know more of how exactly it works ('cause I have a hard time believing in "free energy"), there are two things to address:


First, is there a countermeasure to the process? Any schmuck with even a little gun could take out the largest spaceship - just target some piece(s) that will cause decompression, and they are done for. There have to be shields, or special materials or something, that will hinder this.

Second, it means unlimited power, and that would deeply change the universe. This is a campaign (or story) defining piece, and that should be mentioned.


On the whole, very interesting, and one has to fear if it is not actually plausible. :) Go to Comment

Before anyone starts commenting on the actual 'reality' of this, please just consider this a science fiction submission, loosely based on real concepts, not presented as fact, nor possibility. You know, like the Star Trek original series communicators. Interesting and almost plausible. Go to Comment

An interesting idea, but to keep it from being over-used and abused, I would set a minimum size to a 5D Shunt, something that would allow it to be used in vehicle and ships, but preventing it from being used in hand-held devices and personal firearms. Go to Comment

There needs to be _some_ downside beyond it being used for evil. As soon as you have free power, the concept of 'cost' is almost gone. Go to Comment

dark_dragon's comment on 2009-10-26 06:44 PM
Maybe this is the campaign defining event, propelling the world into a post scarcity economy, and brining in turmoil beyond measure.

Could be a great plot hook: destroy the prototype and kill the team to stop the change, or protect the team at all cost to usher in a new world order (cue religious fanatic, secret societies, and government organisations.)

I think though, that if you have free energy, the entire gameworld economy will shift drastically. The very concept of warfare is skewed, since building new ships is essentially cost free: Just equip a few robots with 5D shunts, send them off to the asteroid field, and hey, presto, a brand new fleet. Might be an interesting article to write. Go to Comment

Old School Star Trek episode... that was the term I was looking for. Exactly the kind of trouble one might meet while traveling where no man has been before. There is some nastiness, there is the technical special effect factor, but there is also a moral issue at the heart...

...great work, Agar! Go to Comment
