Not so much flight as hovering via a-pods, but yes. They can move between planets in matter of days or weeks, but this is as much a function of where the planets are at the time of the flight as much as it is how fast they are.

I can see there being travel seasons, you travel to Mars on the 2-3 months when Earth is swinging around and is on the same side of the Solar system as the red planet, bingo for Jupiter. For points further out you are going to be waiting for the right alignment of the middle planets to slingshot around them, or use them as wayfare or refuel and reprovision points.

Generally the inner system is a matter of a few days, Mars and Jupiter a few weeks, and points further out are a month or more away Go to Comment

This was a fun bit of detail.

I take it these guys do atmospheric flight? And how quickly are they moving between planets? Go to Comment

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)

This is a fun idea, nice reminds me of reading info card on the back of a hasbro toy box. In that way the post succeeds as after reading it I'd like to see this incorporated into a story or game. Go to Comment

5. Straight up.

This was both fascinating and almost terrifying to read. I love the depths you go to in order to help us immerse ourselves In the material and understand it.

By God, Scrasamax; you'd better end up publishing this properly. Because this entire setting is an intense labour of love and deserves greater critical acclaim. Go to Comment

Sexy Borg Queen, a wasteland seraphim, created by DFE. Fusion of human and machine, connected to the minds of her followers in a massively centralized vingian array.

Sil, the Slag, a type of wasteland mutant, designated a breeder. Copulates, typically kills mate and consumes their body for biofuel, lays eggs that hatch into new sil. Pheromone pumps, adrenal glands, zerglings with sexiness.

Serleena the Magistrix, wasteland archon, parapsychic dominatrix, sex avatar, breeder queen

Depends on the city and what nation it is in. Most people 'shake out' rather than hop on a helocraft and fly away. Shaking out is typically falling out of the heart of the city, the arco, and down into the geofront. Down there, you are closer to the ground and the security isn't as tight. Go to Comment

Schwartzchild - the most common yield austerhagen warhead. The Schwartzchild is a 'static' detonation and has no angular momentum. This is the smallest, and most controlled version of the weapon and creates an event horizon approximately 50 meters wide. Everything within this diameter is simply gone. Outside of the diameter, there is gravitational sheer, stress fractures, and secondary damage.

Reissner-Nordstrom - similar to the Schwartzchild, the Reisnner-Nordstrom (RN, or the 'Black Nurse') is a static event, but energetic. The horizon of a Black Nurse is 100-120 meters, and there is significant disruption to EM fields after it's collapse. Reissner-Nordstrom warheads are uncommon due to this. They are more likely to be used as noise generators than in actual targeted combat.

Kerr - the Kerr is a large austerhagen warhead, typically deploying in the self destruct feature of secure offworld facilities. The Kerr is simply a much larger version of a Schwartzchild, static and uncharged. The horizon of a Kerr can be as large as 300 meters, more than adequate to consume an entire space station or large space ship, or to turn an asteroid base into a hollow sphere. There are anti-ship Kerr warheads, but these are highly classified weapons.

Kerr-Newman - the KN is the last word in destruction, opening a kilometer wide rotating black hole. The handful of these superweapons are insurance in case of something like the Seibertronians turning against humanity, an AISC going truly rogue, or encountering something that no reflex team can hope to stop. Only one KN warhead has even been detonated and it was a desperate attempt to close the expanding Weir Rift, a massive DFE that appeared after the failure of a prototype FTL engine test. The rift and the black hole canceled each other out, leaving gravity waves rippling out from the event, sending storms raging through Neptune's atmosphere. Go to Comment

The Gates of Guf

The Gates of Guf are a Nipponese Austerhagen warhead of the Kerr-Newman yield, but is different from the Federation model in that the Guf warhead is a slow burn model, and the resulting event can last for several terrifying minutes. The weapon is part of the Nipponese reflex plan, should something like a teratomorph or Arhat level parapsychic overcome existing defense and response forces, the Guf would be delivered to the problem and 'opened'. The resultant event would unfurl, bathing everything in the brilliance of the the accretion zone, a glowing sphere of light brighter than the sun.

Such a weapon could potentially alter the magnetic field of the Earth, alter weather patterns, and otherwise disrupt the ecosphere. The nipponese government has several of these weapons. Go to Comment

Accelerated Higgs Particle Cannon - colloquially known as a Super Higgs, or Super Graviton Cannon. The form of the AHPC is similar to a basic HPC, but it is much larger and has amplifiers. The prototype AHCP is mounted axially down the center line of a classified testbed warship nestled in at the Maw Installation. The AFS Kepler is listed as a science and research vessel, with emphasis on Higgs research and gravitronics as a whole. The 800 meter ship is a transport vehicle for the AHPC.

When powered up, the front end of Kepler decouples and opens like a mechanical flower, and the beam emitter is exposed. There are six 'amplifiers' that extend from the ship and are locked in place with a powerful magnetic field. These six flattened barrel shaped units, 20 meters wide and 5 meters thick, project and manipulate gravimetric forces in front of the ship and in the emitter. This decreases space-time resistance to the particle beam, allowing the super dense stream of energy to move above the speed of light.

The estimated yield of the Kepler AHPC is 100 gigatons. Should the weapon be pointed at the Earth, the damage would be very likely civilization ending. A European centered blast would set everything from Oslo to Sicily, France to Belurus on fire, with a 100 kilometer wide fireball over Vienna. A similar blast over the United States would stretch from New York to Denver, New Orleans to the top of Ontario, with the 100 kilometer wide fireball leaving nothing behind of Chicago.

Currently, there is not enough power available to the Kepler to charge the weapon up to that world breaking output. Work on the AHPC has been sidelined following the highly negative reviews of the leaked Obliteratix joke program.
