Quite cool - would fit in quite well with the Conan universe...

To me, this is complete and probably can be used as-is in a game. I was never taken much for the idea of the Holy Grail and spin-offs but I'm giving this a score of 4 purely on the prose in this piece. Go to Comment

It's not going to be finished, which it why it's been kicked out. Go to Comment

Comment, vote, doesn't matter. There was too much with the two entries to delete it, and I was basically cleaning house on my in work box. Go to Comment

The two are pretty darn cool - the vault could easily be the start of a campaign!

This isn't finished yet. Might be a very cool submission when all 7 entries are fleshed out, but I'm not going to vote on it until then. Go to Comment

Ok. Do you want us to vote on it, or leave it alone then? Go to Comment
Alethia Goodchild

Moonlake's comment on 2015-12-31 01:19 AM
This NPC has some promise- giving her a maternal urge is a nice touch to counterbalance her praying mantis/black widow side. But overall, this is a very snapshotish sub. If this is a character sheet, I might give it a higher score. Go to Comment

Squeaks by on the hook with Neal Goodchild -- I loved the concept of a being being genetically "coded" to just one other mate. Mass production implies that there might be more of her around (although not with her history or asylum), and therefore possibly more than one Neal Goodchild model for the party to encounter.

Goldenrod Autonics

Dossta's comment on 2016-01-04 12:54 PM
Ha, the Ferari of autons. Was going to bring up C-3PO, but you beat me to it. "Goldenrod" is a nice brand name.

However, this is basically the content from a stub or a single 30s entry, albeit beefed up a bit in word count. There's really not much here (appearance, luxury status, one or two traits). This might be a more useful article if it was a full list of auton manufacturers (or auton models), from the low-end to the high-end, including "custom" or "special" models. Go to Comment

I'm open to suggestions because I'm not happy with the name, it is clunky, doesn't abbreviate well, and feels like something Apple would use to describe the design philosophy behind a light switch. Go to Comment

In the Cosmic Era I can see there being a blurry line between what is acceptable genetic modification, such as genefixing, or the outlandish but rather harmless stuff like making yourself look like a cat, elf, or dranaei? and what is making a weaponized human.

Most nations and organizations capable of genetic modification kinda crap all over the no supersoldiers edict from the Tycho convention, mostly because the conventions are kinda like the League of Nations, looks good on paper, but has no clout, no teeth, to enforce it's rulings. Go to Comment

A good sub, though the name is a bit too different to grasp.

This comment of mine is somewhat ironic - I had the Zoimorphisits School of Magic which is not much less of a mouthful, but shares similar bio-modding, with magic of course.

Genomorphing? - This is already in use in a few places.

Clade is a word I literally learned yesterday when looking at wikipedia about how closely related puffins are to penguins (they are both birds, that's it..). It a nice technical word, but hardly common.

Biogenesis? - Creation of new types of life from other living things.
Transhumanics?

Second val on the name, though I have no alternatives to suggest. Puts me in mind of that Star Trek character, Dr. Bashir -- a genetically enhanced superhuman. In that society, the penalty for genetic modification of any sort was that the child would not be allowed to practice medicine or join the military. Their parents would face prison time. The fear was that opening the door to any of this would lead to another war with Khan-like superhumans, and I can understand that position.

Yet how could we possibly justify NOT doing this? GeneFixing would be a miracle; we could cure everything from bad eyesight to Alzheimer's, and stop the Autism epidemic in its tracks. Some may call the product inhuman or superhuman (or mutant, if they wanted to be nasty), but I can see this becoming the eventual norm in society. Go to Comment

What was the movie where the old guy was murdered, and the only thing they could talk to was a hologram of him, and if they asked the wrong question, it could only say 'my responses are limited'? Same basic concept, and totally. Go to Comment

Another great (and scary) CE read. A simple but fun plot hook for Body Doubles and Doppelgängers could involve a PC escaping (whichever hell he/she was stuck in) and having to (desperately wanting to?) hunt down and kill off all duplicates. Go to Comment

The plot hooks are perfect, and I really have to find a group to run this for. Could see temporary egomorphs being created to serve as last wills and testaments, woken up when the original dies, and then "deactivated" once the job is done. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2015-12-28 03:59 PM
There is a security firm in place, and it largely originates from the machine intelligences that networked the CogNet together. I do need to elaborate on them, but they are basically the 'gods' behind the network, and are one of the reasons that the same network is available regardless of what country you are in. There are private security firms, there are national and international security firms, and like a living organism, there are AISC generated security systems. For the most part, hacking someone's gesund is as likely as someone having their pacemaker hacked. Another layer is that everyone who has a gesund also has a Muse, and to hack into the gesund, any hacker would have to get through that first, without it being able to alert anyone or anything.

I would also posit that there is going to be something along the lines of biological encryption, in that you wouldn't be able to hack into something like someone's cyberware without having access to their genetic information. Go to Comment
