Just how big is the 10-ton Glider? Since gliders are generally very slow, aren't they rather vulnerable to anti-aircraft fire?

There is no mention about stealth being used to protect them, and so slow gliders would simply be blown or lased out of the air with little difficulty.

With stealth, they are much more practical, but would need to be used only at night, but then you do not have the thermal updrafts typically used by gliders to stay aloft - without them you will be lucky to have 30 minutes of flight time.

Now, very small, stealthy ones would be useful perhaps as short range precision weapons on unsuspecting targets...


Just am not buying this as a great weapon - perhaps an emergency one, but even in WWII they were adopted for a short interval, and then replaced by missiles. And a 10-ton payload glider is bigger then a Semi.

I had overlooked to comparison to the space shuttle - my own experience with gliders has been with the conventional tow-into-the-air versions. The picture of basically an offensive space-shuttle clarifies the image for me. I had forgotten about that billion-dollar glider :P

Seems more practical from that standpoint. Go to Comment

One thing to bear in mind however is a traditional modern space shuttle is essentially a flying brick upon atmosphere reentry and doesn't so much "glide" as "fall out fo the sky under minimal pilot control" so keeping one in the air for hours would prove rather difficult without altering the main design a fair bit. (To be more reminiscent of the WWII style glider, i.e something with a large wing span and surface area) Additionally one could also attach solar panels and a cheap electric driven prop to the rear (that can be remotely detached if desired) to give it added flight time and distance.

A handy low beduget weapon that I can readily see employed by rebels fighting with minimal supplies. It would also fit well in the warzone/mutant chronicles sci-fi rpg setting due to the low tech level of the majority of weaponry there.

Hey Axle,

Nice to see the sword of techno babble cuts both ways. Well done Valadaar. See it doesn't matter if you address his points or not, or if his points are valid. Gaming is done in an agreed upon reality. If everyone agree glider bombs work, then they work. One question, what do you mean by "Christmas package type effect"?

A nice little lifeform, full of color and (hard-to-use) potential, I do like it.

That was even before the Orcish bit about souls of cowards, that sealed it for me. Great bird, axlerowes! Go to Comment

I recently had an idea about soul-carrying birds, and started writing, then ran into this. LOVE THEM TO DEATH!! No, really. *POOF* (they now populate most of my campaign worlds). Thank you. Go to Comment

This is really good Axle! This has enough realistic detail and as you have said, has good game use. Where they could possibly be very valuable is as a wizard's familiar.

Until now I always thought ornithology and roleplaying games were mutually exclusive hobbies. This is really good! Well-written, a novel idea, and very realistic background. As I read this, I'm thinking of a dozen different uses for it in my own campaign. Excellent work, Axle! Go to Comment

I have read it now (after seeing Chapter 6) and must say there is indeed imagination and a lot of juicy content (sans those typos). The untrustworthy, well-groomed, proud Ivanvil would make for quite some encounters and tricky roleplaying. Good thing that.

Hope the other chapters will come too! (And hey, you can use a Codex to put them all together into a book, giving perhaps some more identity to the speaker.) Go to Comment
