It's all about having a fleet-in-being vs decisive battle. It comes down to the doctrine at the time when they need to be deployed.

It's a little hard for me to imagine ships being so precipitously expensive to operate while still being constructible, but I suppose it could happen. Perhaps if most of the expense is in energy costs. Go to Comment

Update: Written in 35 minutes, whew

Main visual inspiration was the Protoss Mothership, but with design influences from Sailor Moon, the main visual reference for Imbria. The Imbrians doles out things like the Neam Octillio as a sort of insult to the colonies, giving them the manual on how to make a dock for their space city battleship to land on when aside from the sheer size and power of it, it was an antique, a floating museum in and off itself.

I considered letting the FM be destroyed in mid fold, perhaps coinciding with a Caldera blast, but being an old Battletech player, the ship lost in mid jump is cliche, almost as cliche as the fortuitous hit to an ammo bin giving the protagonist the win in a pitched battle.

Conceptually, this is quite nice, but I struggled for a bit to think of how it might come up in a game. I think I would be inclined to say that it disappeared with that last explosion - perhaps vaporized, or perhaps teleported away. Then one can imagine people hunting for it as a sort of Once and Future King (of Battleships) in the future. Go to Comment

4.5/5 generally very good fluff about CE but I'm not seeing a lot of gaming material here. as always my votes are based on two concepts Art and Usefullness to gaming, Score of 4.5 is almost purely for art(which is quite good!) Go to Comment

There is a lot of really great stuff in here, the hints at internal politics, the logistical details and the other rationales behind the choices made add to sense of versimilitude. And while you don't describe any personalities the quotes give us a side long view of a mind behind this place (which maybe cooler than directly describing something). This is a very good sub.

4/5 For anybody else this would be a great sub, but this seems....a little sub par....can't quite put my finger on what is lacking.....I think you've spoiled me. I do like the overlapping shields thing.. a lot, That brought the whole thing up a notch Go to Comment

New Branson Mo.
approx 75 years before the start of the currant Year( in CE terms) Trilloinaire Martin Cradock discovers records of the original Branson. Rather than build a theme park , he rebuilt on the original site not as a resort but as a secret retreat for himself and his sycophants. In order to make it as close to the original as he could he found the body of a songwriter from the Petroleum Era, cloned him and then imprinted his brain on the mainframe running the retreat. Unfortunately as records of that time are sparse, he cloned Charles Manson.
Having built in secrecy, no one was able to come to the rescue when things went south. What survives today is a mix of country music and the Manson Commune, with the cloning facilities constantly churning out entertainers, victims and psychopaths. Always in need of fresh material for the cloning banks , the surrounding wasteland is raided for fresh human flesh. Go to Comment
