Hahahaha. This is hilarious. Extremely anime-like. Great visuals and it would fit right into the right campaign setting.
"Weaponoids have not successfully been deployed." Too true. Go to Comment

I think these feel very Post-Apocalyptic to me. That is, I can more easily imagine a giant stone statue of Marie Curie coming to life to kick some ass in a Thundarr the Barbarian type game than in the more seemingly Cyberpunk Anime vibe I get from the Cosmic Era (not that they don't fit the CE).

Also, I gotta say: when you have a giant statue named Venus, I just instantly assume that she has no arms. Go to Comment

Very fitting for a campaign world such as The Cosmic Era. A little anime-ey but it fits in nicely.
Good background involving the Greek mythology. The visual of giant protector robots is a good one, and some of the societal implications are covered. Go to Comment

A10 is the designation the Atlantic Federation applied to the clips it issues to mecha pilot trainees.

A general equipment listing would probably look like

A10/mono
F550 (pilot's uniform)
PSA-2 (pistol)
F650 (dress uniform)
N22 (belt and boots)
KX-99 (military issue MUSE device) Go to Comment

Nice!
Has everything one needs from a post - I really like that you added the In Game section.
Is there a reason why they are called A10s? Does it have anything to do with the modern day A10 airplane? Perhaps they were used first in training to pilot an A10? Go to Comment

I would have thought that something like video game addiction would be the first documented illness. Nevertheless, a decent staple.

People could lose the ability to tell the difference between life and the simulated world, and thus begin to feel that they can be deleted / derezzed / scrapped like any of the bots they constantly interact with.

Space Sickness
Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Space)
Scrasamax's comment on 2016-07-28 04:13 PM
Just like people can travel across the ocean on a ship without getting scurvy, people in the Cosmic Era can travel through space with the same general lack of concern about SAS. Motion sickness is a minor discomfort because basically they've had 346 years (the majority of those with space flight capability) to iron out the details. For us it's been 113 years since the Wright Flyer, but 459 for the Cosmic Era, the same amount of time between 1557 and 2016. Most of our modern problems with spaceflight are very similar to the old worries about going to fast (going over 60 mph the force of would could remove your face, or so thought people a century ago) The same goes for muscle and bone mass loss, and other health concerns the stem from the radical change in environment. Space Sickness is just the generic name for a fairly easy to overlook illness that is in that era, most commonly contracted in space. It's not space flu or a space cold (those are still just influenza and the cold virus) because it's legionnaire's disease. I got the idea for this after reading about a D.C. hotel that had a contaminated water supply and guests of the hotel because very frequently sick with said disease.

Now look at popular grimdark space ships, they are dark, very often moist and dripping, and warm enough to be festering pools of bacterial growth. Go to Comment

Space Sickness is a real thing and is not related to bacterial infections.

Not sure that people would start naming the flu or a cold as 'Space Sickness' just because they now get it in space.

I see. I would restructure the post to highlight the origin / nature of the disease first. The interesting aspects of Space Sickness have more to do with the fact that it comes from contaminated water / air systems than that its symptoms are like the cold or the flu. Go to Comment

Updating vote.

I still think the title should be changed to Space Legionnaire's Disease or similar and that the article should start by focusing on the cause of the disease rather than the effects (since they are less important).

Audie Murphy was an unassuming young man who became an incredibly accomplished soldier in WWII who after the war did war movies, but none were autobiographical as his actual accomplishments would be seen as absurd, aggrandized, or blatantly fictional. Go to Comment
