This is a beaut!! You don't have to incorporate the entire Cosmic Era foundation, in order to run a great game/campaign based on the Maw. Everything id need as a gm is here.

Love the shout-outs to the various ships of sci-fi and I learned a new word today. Hoopty.

I'd run a combination of Area 51 and into the dragon's jaws plot hooks. And I just might. Seeing some "PCs" this weekend who love the sci-fi. Go to Comment

As I was reading this sub, mainly the section on construction projects, my mind was constantly under threat of blowing up but then I would encounter something about a particular prototype that tied really nicely and neatly into the underlying world. Anyhow, I felt like I was pulled on two sides a bit while reading cos I have a personal difficulty with the sci-fi genre. But I really liked how at the beginning, there was the reference to how the Maw had been incorporated into everyday language in jest. And I must say that despite being a non-fan of sci fi, this is a very complete piece that is already ready to be dropped into a sci-fi game. So full marks. Go to Comment

I'd like an Undead dog to walk and cuddle without it pooing where it shouldn't or needing food. Go to Comment

"Is that...is that an undead giraffe?!" {Russian mobster accent} "Opulence, I has it."



"Mmmm, I smell herbs. Lovely aroma. Is that potpourri?" "No, that's my dead cat."



"And what the hell is THAT thing?!" "It's my deceased, featherless parrot. Be nice."

Great stuff(ed) here:) Some of these, especially with the mandibulectomy, would have suitably horrible visuals.

Augmented Eye

Most consumer goods these days include RFID tags. The augmented eye is able to detect the RFID tags and can, upon request, display information about the item that appears to be hovering near it. Go to Comment

The world is much changed, but yes it is still relatively backwards in that part of the world. That is relevant of course, because in the more advanced parts of the world, the doctors and cyberneticists are going to look at things like liability and lawsuits, and they are just going to say no. Go to a backwater place, and give the doctors and cigarette smoking cyborg mechanics enough money and they'll shrug, say it's your funeral, and start hacking. The same general vibe from Elysium when the guys who fix the exoskeleton to Max's body, but are covered in tattoos, and they pass around a joint before picking up a bonesaw. Go to Comment

I really like the interplay here between the esoteric third eye of perception mythology and the near-future techno. Great read!! And is it crazy to say, I can see this happening in a few decades?!



Only thing that rang weird was "medical experts of Tajikistan". I wouldnt trust them to apply a band-aid on a booboo lol. Even in the future. Bit too backward over there for them to take any kind of scientific/medical "leap" ahead anytime soon.

Well, that's about as good an explanation as I can imagine.(Hope I don't get hate mail from Tajikistan :P)

A truly enjoyable read. A window into our own humanity's future? The verisimilitude of the virtual reality experience and the effects thereof described here is awesome (and yugen!). And of course, the Japanese.

Moonlake's comment on 2015-07-02 03:15 AM
Like Muro said, the first thing this reminds me of is the Internet addiction problem and the Hikikomori is what the Chinese call "home boy/girl" (literal translation here). And yugen makes me think of meditation.

This is a good sub for showcasing and linking to the other subs of the Cosmic Era (even though I haven't read all the linked ones). I esp. liked the contrast b/w Ukiyo (Floating World) and the French word meaning sinking world that have come to represent virtual reality versus the real world. However, what I felt a little weird about this sub is that it felt like details are missing (at least to me). Or rather, I should say that I somehow expected that the sub would dive into some of the more important/signature social groups floating around in Ukiyo. That might not be your intention and I understand that. It's just that the sub is feeling more like an overview atm. Go to Comment

This is a pretty on point idea, but you don't lend enough credibility to human creativity as well as ingenuity. If we can develop structures like the one listed above then I think we show the capacity to learn from it's data.

The conclusion is pretty clear though, humanity will inevitably become space explorers, but in a very different sense of the term. We would more thsn likely just re-route the light speed issue by sending ships out into space attached with breeding colonies, by the time they arrive at their destination amcloned generation wouldmrestart the growth and development of the human race, still living aboard planetary vessels (structures almost as large as the moon).

We know and understand the locust archetype for alien resource harvesting, and we would probably learn from our mistakes and program machines to harvest resources while we as a race spent ample time unlocking the true potential of the mind. Eventually evoloving into 5th dimensional beings if we found the strength to overcome impossible barriers of perception that actually can be broken. It just requiresma slight re wiring of the brain over generations of cryosleep and a "matrix" simulation to force our evolution.

The real question though is can I ise your idea to RP as space mice? Go to Comment

Followed the Maw link to Cymeks here, to see what they are exactly, and i love the multiple meanings of the term, as well as the description. Could be an insult, could be mis-used, could be help for traumatized brains, not just straight-up "enhancers", etc Go to Comment

Perfectly evil. An excellent addition to the necromancer's toolset of horrors.

Throw in a massive undead porter to carry it around...
