Space Sickness
Lifeforms  (Third Kingdom)   (Space)
Mageek's comment on 2016-07-30 03:12 PM

Updating vote.

I still think the title should be changed to Space Legionnaire's Disease or similar and that the article should start by focusing on the cause of the disease rather than the effects (since they are less important).

Audie Murphy was an unassuming young man who became an incredibly accomplished soldier in WWII who after the war did war movies, but none were autobiographical as his actual accomplishments would be seen as absurd, aggrandized, or blatantly fictional. Go to Comment

Don't know who Audie Murphy is so can't give bonus marks but a solid NPC made from the 4 sentence template. Go to Comment

+0.5 for the links and the fact that she is all these disparate aspects to her character but they work so well together into making her unique Go to Comment

I really like this one. There's enough here to give an idea of the setting, but I also think that angeloids are potentially generic enough to fit into a lot of different settings with virtual reality. The premise of VR police is, I think, a strong one, and I think that making them angelic is a nice touch. It's interesting to imagine that these might come from societies with certain cultures, and other entities might have their own "angels" with different presentations.

Lot of good food for thought here. Go to Comment

Solid article for a solid concept in fiction. I like that you mention two significant drawbacks and suggest a means for exploiting them. Go to Comment

An interesting idea, but one of the core concepts of the UBCS is that it is credit issued from the government to the populace, and not from actual credit card companies, currency has undergone a radical change in the Cosmic Era. All the banking megacorps make their money from handling the business of other corps and handling the UBCS contracts from the government. The banks want the contracts, because if your megabank ends up being the principal agent of the UBCS in a large and prosperous region, you are going to make mad money (for the megacorps, there is no money for the populace, just credit). If your megabank doesn't land a fat contract, you're hurting, there's corporate downsizing, being the target of corp raiding, shadowrun hits, like sharks smelling blood in the water, and then being dissolved and subsumed by other megabanks.

A lot of vicious stuff going on behind the scenes while the average citizen hums along, not caring what corp backs his kard, so long as it works when he logs into Virtua-Girl, orders a pizza, or keeps his residence up to date. Go to Comment

Hmm, I would think that multikard styles would emerge in much the same way credit card styles do: each company is free to issue whatever color/style they want, so anyone can end up with a chrome sheen if they desire.
That being said, having color-coding for the sake of making gameplay easier makes sense. Go to Comment

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

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
