A great assortment of ideas on how robots could be incorporated into future society, even without considering their role in the Cosmic Era.

I really enjoyed reading this one! Smells of post-modern real-politik.

I like the term and the explanation for it. It's a depressing thing but not entirely unreasonable. Someone has really been studying what happens when we start to transition to a post-scarcity economy. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2014-01-14 01:14 AM


Author's Note: It is easy to point out that the idea of the O2 towers, and the cooperation fostered by their construction, and the fact that they worked goes against the grain of the Cosmic Era setting and the writing guide. While it is true, there was a beneficial outcome, there is a certain degree of cost involved. The collectivism and the human hives are a direct result of the towers and the O2 scare. The financial cost of building the processing towers was immense, and their operating budget, along with the 3rdNet that grew from them was also stunning.



The Shinjuku Tower cost Nippon close to $1 trillion dollars to construct, and had an operational budget of $125 billion a year afterwards. The island nation staggered through several economic defaults before being propped up by the Red Sun bank and electing the Emperor to replace the existing government. Hundreds died in riots, and several hundreds more committed suicide in varying fashions (alcoholism, drug overdose, seppuku) over the economic flounderings.



The entire Pan-Asian basin went through an economic collapse as they struggled to support the cost of the mammoth towers, along with the continual construction of arcologies, seacologies, geofronts and participating in the space race. As the Renaissance lurched forward, an increasing number of people were born into what will become generational poverty, filling the favelas, creating the hive like urban rims, and feeding into the criminal underground and illegal syndicates.

A really good redux, selection of the last name Pendragon gave it additional authenticity
(I hope that was your intent :))

A much more detailed and useful NPC. Mission Accomplished indeed.

Keith Moon the adventurer! nice. John Bonham too I suppose.



I ocd'd on his love of potions for a while. Can see him having a resistence to not only poisons but most magical potions. Needs to chug 3 healing to get effect of 1, giant-growth barely stretches him a few inches, polymorph affects an arm and leg only, etc...



His quirky companions sound fun too. Who?

I really like the imagery of this one, a kind of mad rockstar. Percussion mage sounds interesting, though one immidiately thinks bard, the effects described probably goes beyond what a normal bard could accomplish, not to mention he doesn't seem as focused on support(not at all really). I can definately see myself using this one in the future, great job! In fact I'll give it a full score, definately a fun character. Go to Comment

Because it exists now. The Osteen Malachi Bible is a direct reference to Megapastor Joel Osteen and the Book of Malachi. Go to Comment

The most horrifying part of this submission is that it already exists and seems to effectively gain support....

Very fitting into the Cosmic Era setting. Go to Comment

This makes complete sense for how the Cosmic Era seems to be shaping up. I do wonder how it could have formed during the Petroleum Era (since modern Christianity is against materialism), but its growth in later eras seems perfectly natural.

I do like you putting the controversial issues their for or against in there, which helps further define them as an organization, and I also like the idea of competing evangelists. Go to Comment

A fine artifact with everything it needs, perhaps save for how one would destroy this thing.

Nicely done! Go to Comment

Author's Note: The CogNet and previous 3rdNet were more than just exchanges of electronic information. Tied into the paranormal nature of arcanotechnology, the electronics and hardware are nothing more than gateways. The amount of data floating in the net far surpasses the storage capacity of the planet, and its only increasing. How can this be? The CogNet is a portal/gateway to the Dreamlands of the Lovecraft Mythos. The hardware functions as borders, and while the various constructs and programs floating around have their very obvious purposes, their very ordered and static patterns serve to transmute the wild and mutable ephemera of the Dreamlands into a cognitive material

Accessing the CogNet is easy, tons of things and people do it constantly, but these interactions are just skimming the surface of the system, and are the side where there can be connection issues, and bandwidth and all sorts of other technical jargon. Entering the CogNet ala a S3 rig, or other immersion device, like a Wachowski probe, typically puts the cybernaut (The term before home immersion systems became affordable) in a lucid dreaming state. While alert and responsive, the cybernaut is largely unaware of their physical surrounding, or people around them, unless they are disturbed. This is how the user forms the connection to the Dreamlands through the arcanotech hardware. Go to Comment

Good, you needed some robots with that classic sci-fi feel in the cosmic era.
