Added the graphic warning, good call. As for the leering images of evil clowns, mission accomplished. Go to Comment

The Clowns are a gang of degenerates that have been used as the worst of the worst in my home game. In the home game, they rarely have any sort of leadership and it is a general carnival of chaos and mayhem. The history and background of the Clowns is somewhat unimportant in that context so the leadership role being filled by the various actors/personas that have played the Joker provided a figurehead for both leadership and for their history.

As for long term plans, as the Joker says, Do I look like the sort of guy who makes plans?

The things that set the Clowns apart from other gangs is that they are the bottom of the barrel, the most depraved, the most violent, and the most inhuman of all. They are involved in the drug trade, but on the bottom side up, peddling the worst sort of drugs, the sort that cause bodily harm by simple proximity like meth and bath salts. The thematic elements are the most obvious factor, with the circus/clown theme recurring over and over. The gang members lose themselves in those elements.

This is pretty horrific. I mean, in sort of a good way. I'm not sure these guys would fit into the sorts of games I tend to run, but at the very least, the post makes a good format for a gang write-up, and there are definite strong points to this one. Go to Comment

Brutal in a good way. Great use of pictures.

I think the pictures added quite a bit, though some of them could have been sized down a tad. As for the content, it's pretty much what you'd expect of a whole gang based around Heath Ledger's Joker -- violent, disturbing and scary as hell. I especially liked the bit about the various drugs; that one sentence about administering Nuke to hostages to "keep them cool" tells you all you want to know about being at the mercy of this gang.

If there was anything I could suggest, it would be to imagine a few more unique gang-related activities. The Suicide Parties are a good step, but what else can they do to distinguish themselves from other "normal" gangs (besides the thematic elements, I mean). Are they big in the hostage industry? Sex-trade? Do they have any long-term plans? Go to Comment

Drug-addicted, psychopathic clowns slaughtering people? You are an evil, sick strolenite, Scrasamx. I, naturally, love it.

I especially love the suicide parties and the rape bit. Well, I don't love it, because its sick and evil, and in fact hate it... ah, you know what I mean.

The one improvement I can see is less pictures. You see, having so many pictures means I'm seeing at least one as I read, which means that I get a mental image of an evil clown grinning as he rapes and burns me to death.

Also, it might help if you add a line saying that it has graphic content. I don't mind it, but others might. Go to Comment

This biomass is functionally ectoplasm, ephemeral material, that is 'bleeding' over into reality. Multiple dimensions, and dimension seepage are both not rare events in the cosmic era. The biomass is not targeting non-biological material, the biomass is the unintended consequence of arcanotechnology, it isn't a normal organism. Its cybernetic cancer.

As for being implausible, well thats the entire purpose of arcanotechnology; levitation, free energy, infinite heat dissipation, true mechanical sentience, copying people's memories, artificial brains, giant robots, exotic beam weapons, etc. It is supposed to be strange and disturbing. It isn't a slick shiny creature inhabiting the shell of a mecha, it is a mass of cancerous tissue, tapping into the conduit of human suffering and misery. Go to Comment

Evangelion is one of my favorite animes, and I have to admit there was certainly some influence from it. I would make a hekatonkheire a mix of evangelion and the Zerg infested units from Starcraft. Unlike Evangelion, these aren't being produced deliberately by any secret government agencies, though there are several of them in containment undergoing study. At this point, I am going to say that domesticating a hekatonkheire is currently beyond the ability, or simply too dangerous to be reliable.

This submission is like the universe itself - pulling in bits and pieces everywhere into a cohesive whole.

These are great and form instant adventures for the game. Playing a mechwarrior/battletech campaign in this world would be wild fun.

Where does this bio-mass come from, and why does it specifically target non-biological stuff? Wouldn't it have been more plausible to have like a nano-swarm or other sentient technology attach itself to the mecha? If this bio-mass can do this, wouldn't it just have been easier for it to make itself a fully biological body, or to take over a biological entity? Visually, the idea is nice, but it just seems a bit implausible. Go to Comment

Oh sort of like Evangelion, where they built the mechas of the fallen angels. That makes more sense. Go to Comment

I have to say that the first image is awesome and inspiring. Really enjoyed reading this one. It has your standard-issue "Cosmicness", yet is easy to follow without stumbling over techno-jargon. I got a strong sense of verisimilitude as I read it as well. South Africa, the doctor devoted to restoring the ravaged biosystems of Africa, the techno-nervous system tie-in...it all makes sense! Plot Hook #2 is a nice one, generating suspense and paranoia. Last line is intriguing, regarding them knowing that their species has already been eradicated. Trippy. Finally, I want one!



Well done.

Another great element for the Cosmic Era! I do like the old-school transformers a bit more then the current ones.

Good catch, I'll remove the note after I write that article. I'll do the same for the hekatonkheire and carraith note as well. Go to Comment

Some of it is intended to be tongue in cheek, some basic homage and the rest falls under calling a rabbit a rabbit.

I could throw out made up named and mire technobabble or I could put in the entry Honey I Shrunk the Shadowrunners. One major issue I encountered with this sub was keeping it relatively concise. Each entry easily expands out into its own sub and even grouo of subs for monsters and NPCs and dinguses. Go to Comment
