I read through all of this thinking 'hey, this guy is pretty cool!', and then I saw your disclaimer at the end and Gossamer's comment about it being very similar to a lot of things she had already seen :(

whellp, I'm not as well versed as others in this stuff, and this sounded fun to me, so I'll give you that extra bit of score! Go to Comment

Sounds like a campaign to remember. I like this fellow quite a bit, and would love to hear other stories from that old campaign. Go to Comment

While this does fit somewhat into the usual ideal of a Dwarf, it doesn't feel stereotypical to me. The stories told to keep good little Dwarves in line is a nice touch, especially since it has real life analogues. The tankard-axe is pure awesomeness. And even though this is more "real" Dwarf than some of your most recent subs, it still sticks its metaphorical tongue at Dwarven society; despite the stories and the failures of others, Stout has managed to cross the line and live the life he wants.

Even before the end, I had a feeling this was a character you had played. The offhand references to past events had that nostalgic scent to me. Sounds like fun times.

Well you certainly did a 360. A very traditional dwarf indeed, perhaps even a bit overly so. Could have done with some more depth, though I appreciate the fact that he's an old creation and even a bit of gamer history for you. If I was just starting out, and hadn't seen/read so many similar things, I would have rated it higher, well written though it was. Go to Comment

D4Vr05 - The renegade Mechanoid.

DAVr05 (Dynamic Accolades - Version 05) is one of the most infamous of mechanoids and is largely considered the source of the idea of mechanoids being evil. The droid was a cyborg model that was made from a volunteer who wanted to escape the mortal life and pursue a digital life in the CogNet. Older and suffering from a variety of age and old injury related issues, he was accepted and was made into a Remote Node.

He was also, unknown to them, a major criminal and technically a genius. David Avros was wanted in several nations and on two planets for his work as a freelance mercenary and later weapons designer and smuggler. As a mechanoid he was able to escape detection and started more serious work as a terrorist mastermind. Operating under the aegis of DAVr05, he created a large number of CogNet viruses, hacked with near impunity, and became a fountain of hate, xenophobia, and puritanical rage.

He is unstable and a loose cannon, as often turning against those he helps, as causing mayhem and destruction for the sheer purpose of mayhem and destruction. Go to Comment

The Intent

The Stears-Cusick cyborg/mechanoid is a hybrid creation inspired by the Daleks and the astromechs from Star Wars. There was a discussion I started about the feasibility of the astromech in the Cosmic Era setting, and the response was generally in agreement: no. So I looked more towards the Dalek side of the equation. The utilipod droid is a general maintenance machine, like the astromech, and are fairly common but only inside arcologies, space stations, and so forth. The cyborg component brings in the standard brain in a jar technology. Go to Comment

This is good craftsmanship, but it feels like you were not properly motivated when writing.

A good piece, but far from your best. Go to Comment

The use of the name Davros was the biggest clue given to their inspiration for me :)

Nicely done - good integration as always. Go to Comment

How has this not been voted on yet?

I guessed at the origins, which, since it wasn't outright stated until the end, made me enjoy this a little more. Despite adapting from an outside source, this still feels like full-fledged Cosmic Era to me. Good work.

This is a great submission, and I love the idea of flying warships.

It funny in that the Cosmic Era, with all its darkness, has an optimistic side to it - more so than our own world. Regardless of its barbarism, public opinion has not managed to move real world governments away from nuclear, biological or chemical weapons.

In some ways, a world without nukes feels more fantastic than a world with warp drive.

I think its time you made a Cosmic Era region, Scras.

I'd happily add these to the Science Fiction region, but these really need their own. :)

I think this is absolutely fantastic. I love the concept of flying ships. The details are amazing and well thought out. It took me a few days to work my way through it, but it was worth the effort. Go to Comment

I absolutely love everything about this; I think it's incredible that you came up with your own warped versions of each of these (I especially like the cacodemon and how it has a body in an alternate plane.

im probably swayed by the fact that i'm playing doom 3 through again at the moment: it isnt as fantastic as the first games and it doesn't have the nostalgia value, but it's still nice in its own right.

Thanks for writing this up as a companion for Retribution!

I call dibs on writing up an idea for the Arch-Vile (My favourite of the doom-world beasties!)

The Cacodemon could have very easily become it's own stand alone submission
