The Cosmic Era is how I sleep at night. When it's out on the Citadel, in a binder, or written in Evernote, It's out of my head. Go to Comment

This is a very clever idea for an article, comparing and contrasting their predictions with your own world and vision. And providing much linkage. Nicely done! Also shows just how rich the Cosmic Era has become through your efforts that you can do this sort of them/me thing in the first place.

Silva seems just a tad overly optimistic in general to me. Still torn on my thoughts regarding the Singularity. I've been to a Kaku lecture (on YouTube :p) and imho he's slightly coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs.

Honestly, Scras, this is a terrifying article. I would much rather assume that things go the way of the Star Trek universe than towards the dystopia of your setting. The self-driving cars alone pose huge problems: http://arstechnica.com/security/2015/08/highway-to-hack-why-were-just-at-the-beginning-of-the-auto-hacking-era/ Even today, nothing with an internet connection can be implicitly trusted, because someone will always find a way in. I can only imagine the horror of a world where EVERYTHING -- robots, buildings, even our own bodies -- is exploitable, nothing is private, and the value of human life becomes negligible.

Almost makes me want to develop a setting where things veer in the opposite direction, just to help me sleep at night. Go to Comment

I love taking real-world predictions and linking them so well to your fantasy world. Solid.

You can add:

"Elon Musk, CEO & Entrepreneur; Telsa, Space X, Solar City, and Open AI

- we will remain vigilant to guide research in ways to prevent a robotic apocalypse
- we be an interplanetary (and hopefully interstellar) civilization
- we will live in an electrified, automated world
- people and freight will get around in 750 mph bullet trains running in partially-evacuated tubes

This one brings a whole new meaning to talking to yourself. I agree with Dossta about liking the idea of a limited clone, but what really grabs me is the idea of it being a copy of your mind at a given time. I can imagine a busy scientist, say, working on a number of different projects, each with an egomorph of himself with a different train of thought associated with it. Go to Comment

Sweet stuff. I like the idea of a "broken" clone -- one with personality and feelings but no real sentience. I also appreciate the added plot hooks. When are you going to publish the setting source book? ;) Go to Comment

The Purge, actually a pretty good movie, and the follow up Anarchy, was also good.

This is slick. No needless info. Conjures up images of that Ethan Hawke movie about the one day a year, when all laws are called off, mixed with fight club naturally, mixed with the opening day-of-the-dead sequence in the Spectre movie, mixed with hot-blooded, mano-a-mano machismo. Celebrity matches is good too. Likey!

randomly came across this, good solid post, concise and full of possibilities. I can't remember reading much about South America in the cosmic era, but it sounds like that could be the place to be Go to Comment

Nifty, and no one says someone could not convert one back into a military role in a pinch. Even for something as simple as a door-opener/razor-wire stomper.

And, one could see one of these becoming a host for an AI.

Really cool. Amnesia city with addictive Flashback drugs, a sputtering red sun, and countless automatons. Love the atmosphere of this place. Great setting for a tale/game or three!

To me this is like one of Mr. Holiday's speedpaints. It suggests, hints and piques the imagination while being quite open. Of course it prompts more questions then it answers, but still, its awesome!

To me, this is a complete but you probably had higher aspirations for it in the first place. I've said it before, I'm not a fan of sci-fi and is in fact quite adverse to it but this piece is executed well and the idea of radiation causing mass amnesia is conveyed here in a snappy, plausible and non-mind-boggling way that I like. Still, not really comfortable to vote on this piece. Go to Comment

In the Cosmic Era, this sort of finishing school seems almost mundane (though the execution here is nice), but I'm intrigued by the idea of seeing one of these introduced in a more modern environment. I think it's easy to imagine someone like Bond or Batman having to bring down such an institution.

Of course, in its rightful place, you could do something similar, but perhaps with more street level individuals. Go to Comment

Appearance augmentation in the Cosmic era is ubiquitous, which does bring up a certain paradox. There is a drive to be attractive, but only to a certain point, if you are too attractive it can work against you, especially if you are female. Go to Comment

Great sourcebook level details here, gear, background, etc, but apart from potentially inheriting Québécois stereotypes, there isn't much of her there.
