Just another day in the big city...



Very well described in places. Awesome canvas for gaming (or in your case, awesome locale for a novel I imagine.) An entire world really, inside of a city. Besides Gotham, I get a bit of a Basin City vibe, along with for some reason, a fascimile of futuristic novels of the 40's, 50's, and 60's, decrying the "metropolises" they describe.



As per usual, no positives are mentioned about "life in the big city", of which there are many. Then again, I imagine that's by design. :)

With the exception of "Space Trucks" this is almost a point for point rewrite of the discussion of space commerce in the old Star Wars West End games source book. Nothing wrong with that though, the cosmic era is about folding in things from other genres and the convergent evolution of speculative fiction.



But lets get down to the juicy details. How much space traffic do you want there to be in the cosmic era? I thought that humanity had not yet left the solar system in the cosmic era and the alien invasion had not happened yet. Yet you mention stuff "Most of the container ships are involved in terraforming operations". How many terraforming operations are going on in the solar system? How many people live an extraterrestrial lifestyle? Are they self sustaining yet?



But also might space hauling be more like log flows. Let us say you have harvested and lumped together using some sort of ionic net 400,000 tons of carbon floating about 10 million miles from the rings of Saturn and you want to get that stuff to the Solar powered molecular fabrication plant (takes carbon and then builds super strong material from the atom up) sitting behind Mercury. How much energy do you need to get that 400,000 tons of carbon there. With a geeky dose of planning and one good push, couldn't that chunk just move that way without a lot of course correction? How much energy and time do you need to invest in order to ensure that there are course corrections? How long will it take?

I think they don't even want to restore her, or to substitute the hormones. Why deal with puberty when you can have a perfectly stable kid general?

Possibly, I'd revisit what kind of body she chooses for herself; it might not be girlish teen androids. The gamer in her might choose a body that appears imposing, epic and still cool, an iconic over-the top sculpt that has nothing to do with how she might have looked if not for her sickness.

Can I say, I feel bad for her? Which is a good thing. A somewhat tragic powerful presence, messed up in head, and a damn interesting character for a novel. I imagine you can go many ways with her...good, bad, other. The 27 pounds of brain and suspended viscera is a jolting image.

I'm going to have to look up what the heck an Ender Wiggin is now. Go to Comment

I like this character - can serve as an antagonistic patron or enemy easily enough.

I like; reminds me of some Steven King novels (Dreamcatcher comes to mind).

This is a great villain. He feels worse than both Dr. Doom and Dr. Octopus.

A welcome addition to the Cosmic Era. Go to Comment

There were some grammatical issues here and there, but this is solid. I loved the mention of "plaid and polka dot" morality. I loved the fact that his single lingering testicle actually affects him mentally (and being that mental faculties seem to be what he is, that's quite a big deal).

I would really love to use him as a late-tier villain in my upcoming Powers for Good campaign. He's really great and he'd definitely fit in. Thanks to you, I now realise that I can use some of the villains of my own creation as submissions.

This is a truly wonderful post. It's definitely reminiscent of the four-colour days, but with a twinge of modern insensibilities. Well done. Go to Comment
