One of the ideas that fed into this was the symbolism and whatnot that is used in gang tattoos. Thusly, various gang members have tattoos on their body that demonstrate the sort of things that they have done, from crimes to jail time, and so forth. There was an article on a prison inmate who was actually found guilty of an initially unrelated crime, but was incriminated by his own tattoos because he basically bragged in permanent ink about how he killed another man, on his chest. To the average person, the meanings behind the symbols are unknown, or only the most rudimentary are known. It takes professionals to break down the internal language of symbols used, and the symbols and iconography change from gang to gang, from prison to prison, and from country to country. In contemporary fantasy, thieves guilds are the norm, functioning like the Mafia or the Yakuza, and being large and established, they would have their own sets of symbols and such to use for many purposes.

The fun part could be using the internally consistent symbol set, but not telling the players and letting them map it out. Go to Comment

This is one of those that is so simple it should have been done much sooner. The thought of underworld tattoo's as a symbol of heraldic stature is wonderful and something i will use in the future for my Hellgate Prison run. Go to Comment

I was going to ask in what capacity a thieves' guild or the like would even use heraldry. I should think those in the underworld generally don't want to be caught and would avoid using distinct symbols for themselves. And where would they put it? I can't see a thief with a banner.

But Val and Cheka give some solid potential uses. I could also see it used in a crime lord's parlor (crime lords have parlors, yes?) where it could show his or her prestige.

At the very least, the ideas are thought out and interesting. Go to Comment

Hmm, thought I commented, but apparently did not click OK.
This has a lot of uses, and is a perfect fit with Tattoos.

These can be used also to adorn items to provide subtle clues to their abilities.

Also a huge secondary market for surplus military hardware, and a market to move obsolete equipment. Why just toss the obsolete skeletron models when you can get a few tens of thousands of credits each, rather than the few hundred credits they might be worth in scrap and recycled parts.

And on the human side, once someone is too old to work in the military, they go into the robo leagues, and start training the kids, the up and comers, and whatnot. Go to Comment

A nice addition to the game setting, and a place I could see retired/discharged mecha pilots entering as a way of staying involved with the mecha lifestyle. Go to Comment

4.0/5

And now I fancy watching Real Steel again. A good movie incidentally, although it is pretty much Rocky with robots. Go to Comment

Wow, this is another excellent 30, each one deserving of greater detail - perhaps their own subs.

The positioning of the Fairies as short-lived, relatively stupid creatures is interesting and creates a dynamic between these and other Fae.

Really love this one! Go to Comment
