Ludicrous Gats: Guns for the Cosmic Era

Noisy Cricket

A hold out weapon of immense power, the Noisy Cricket is a kinetic-sonic arcanotech weapon. The device generates a powerful sonic discharge, roughly similar to the sound of a cricket. The resulting sonic shotgun creates an expanding wall of force that is surprisingly effective at damaging soft targets, knocking things over, and generally making a mess. Kineto-sonic weaponry has not proven to be very useful for three major reasons, loudness, lack of armor penetration, and recoil.

The loudness of the Noisy Cricket and similar weapons (such as the OmniCorp 'Boom Tube') make the weapon users stand out on the battlefield. This makes anyone using one a major target.

Kineto-sonic damage is spread across a relatively large space. While this means that they are good for blowing apart shacks, knocking down drones, and sending crowds of attackers flying, armored targets are only knocked down. Against mecha, power armor, and heavy droid troopers, the weapon can at best, knock them over, or slow them down.

Finally, recoil from the weapons is impressive. Hand held guns can send the shooter flying, and larger weapons proved unruly for even mecha to control. Go to Comment

Nice! Kind of like the artifact category from DnD. There are a ton of things that could fall into this list: laser cats, the MIB noisy cricket, Raven's nuclear sidecar, the care bear stare, and the Halo needler. I'd love some weird weapon based on swarming drones a-la the Protoss carrier.

*EDIT* I realized later that you do have a weapon based on drones - the Hornissennest System from Allele la Creuset.

26-Urn Beast

The PCs find a number of sealed urns in the alcove, and if being PCs they decide to smash them open, several will contain gold coins, until the last one, which contains a furious Urn Beast , the undead soul of somebody who was really against cremation in life. It's touch causes burns, weapons do it no damage, fire spells just make it angry, and only water, or spells of ice, will put it out and effectively kill it, at least until someday it dries again and re-ignites.

27-Giant Centipede

The PCs find a huge centipede the size of a cobra in the alcove, and it strikes out at the nearest one. Whilst it has no webbing, and a strike or two with a sword will kill it, it is very hard to hit and it's bite is very poisonous indeed. In stats terms, it has low stamina but a high skill, and it's bite does a lot of hit point damage.

28-Potions

The PCs find a large number of different potions, but sadly, they are all Flawed Potions and do not have the expected effects when drunk.

It's a trap!

29-The PCs find a large amount of gold, but the first one to try and get it will fall into a six foot deep pit trap with a number of spikes at the bottom.

30-Distressed Damsel

The PCs find a bound and gagged young woman in the alcove. Assuming they ungag and untie her, who she is and why she is tied up is up to the GM. Go to Comment

Ah! That had a refreshingly classic feel. Made me want to dig up some graph paper, pencils and a copy of the monster manual. I enjoyed the none-to-serious tone and I liked the straight-taking unaffected voice.

Enterolans, nice one, I hope the PCs packed a lawn gnome*.

Oubliette has always been a disappointing word for me. It is just a hole in the ground! But the way Oubilette rolls of the tounge makes me think magical puzzle box, chamber of secrets or torture room. What is the etymology on that one?

Indeed, very old school! Awesome, dreadful stuff here!

Oubliette is of French origin - to forget. Lock em up and throw away the key.

Good collection of dungeon elements. My only reservation is that pretty much anything could fall into this list. I'd really like to see this broken down into several collections. One could, for instance, distinguish between monsters, items, traps, and dungeon features.

Limbo is great. Go to Comment

Good read! Great example of insanity's internal dialogue. Madness, thy name is this guy.

This does a great job of conjuring up madness. As a piece, I guess it lacks a final punch/twist that would put it over the top.

Really great idea 5/5. I like the ideas and the idea that archeology residents go through withdraw. Philosophy in a bubble like the 5Ss is also something I enjoy reading.

Have you heard of Sesame Credit? This is happening in real life right now. Users are encouraged to perform pro-government tasks such as posting pro-government statements, and their score is tied to perks. Your score decreases if you are affiliated with others with low scores, so you get a feedback effect where you encourage your friends to conform or you simply disassociate from them.

You've crafted quite an elaborate yet condensed system. I can certainly see myself using it. Go to Comment
