This I find a better illustration of the 4 sentence NPC concept compared to the last sub. The slightly contradictory of what this character is seduced and frightened by at the same time gives it a nice flavour. Go to Comment
The Hume Manifesto

Scrasamax's comment on 2016-07-15 03:38 PM
The basic cloning tech would still be required, lacking gender or sexual reproductive organs, humes are physically incapable of reproducing. No uterus, no eggs, no sperm, none of that. So, the cloning tanks, and machines that turn zygotes into infants would still be needed. Genetic material could still be donated, ranging from self-duplication, to creating task oriented batches of humes, and so forth. Go to Comment

Mageek's comment on 2016-07-15 12:40 PM
Great food for thought!
The Hume movement is a logical consequence of the hypersexualized culture stemming from rampant genetic modification. Some points worth pursuing are: that cloning is not necessary (genetic crossover can be done synthetically) unless a set of 'optimal' genes have already been decided upon, that the economics are being Hume should eventually lead humes to greater prosperity and greater cultural value (like the 'feels' that run tech today), and that some extremist humes might use mind-altering substances and technology to move themselves towards becoming 'perfect' (perfect logicians, free of bias, photographic memories, a multitude of sensor inputs, a permanent state of spiritual oneness, maybe even free of free will).

Right - I meant that you don't need to use direct clones; you can simulate parents by doing genetic crossover synthetically. It doesn't feel right for humes to request copies of themselves. Go to Comment

Scrasamax's comment on 2016-07-15 03:36 PM
One of the few decent things to come out of watching Antonio Banderas' painfully mediocre 'Automata'

A good portion of the movie was spent looking for the 'clocksmith', evoking a washed out 1980s post-apoc robot western version of Bladerunner, without the acting, special effects, charm, or memorable characters. The robots, with their synthetic voices and uniform appearance seemed to have more range than the human characters. If this was deliberate, it would have been better done (compare HAL's mellifluous voice in 2001: A Space Odyssey vs the toneless voice of Bowman) This was just formerly impressive actors working for a paycheck.

Again, WW casts a whole different vibe to this for me. Nice.

Nothing exceptional, and trope, yes. I've thrown out this as the spearhead submission in a four sentence character challenge. Spelling errors have been fixed. Go to Comment

Did you read the related submission Cheka? This is intentionally a very terse submission.

That said, I would probably use the more verbose form with each sentence followed by a bit of expansion.

I like her - a simple straightforward NPC that can easily be used. I think Cersei is very close to this one :)

I know this is supposedly to for the 4 sentence challenge and I don't mind its length. What I do mind is the one-dimensionality of the NPC. The seduced by and frightened by parts seem to me as if they are the same thing rephrased in a different way. Sorry, Scras, didn't mean to be harsh, but I just felt like some of the potential of this NPC had been wasted this way. I'm gonna go with 2.5 on this. Go to Comment

This is a rather standard fulfillment of the "Evil Queen" trope. I would have graded it 2 or 2.5 except for the spelling errors ("rave dark hair" and "inspect" rather than expect). Go to Comment

You could, but first that person's memories would have to be saved in a file (having been ripped from their brain) and they could be partially implanted in another person's mind. But doing so is going to cause major cerebral trauma. Expect the lose of some abilities, loss in INT score, as well as something like 1D6+1 psychoses. Go to Comment

Could you give someone the memories of a dead family member with this? Or the happier memories of an ex girlfriend? Go to Comment
